“Absolute joy in the countryside!”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

We were met by Filippo, the owner, who was most gracious (despite our being late).The Locanda was outstanding...beautifully decorated and furnished; situated on a picturesque hillside with small towns nearby. In the mornings, we were greeted by Holly, Filippo's adorable, butterfly-chasing dog, while we enjoyed coffee and the views of hills, flowers, and the Italy we've come to love. During quiet evenings, we could see the lights of Bologna in the distance, and that city was a short and easy drive away. The town of Castel de Britti is centrally located, and we used this base to make day trips to Ferrara, San Marino, and Bologna (it's also close to Florence, Ravenna, etc). The Locanda is also walking distance to an excellent restaurant, Osteria La Vetta, whose waiter Massimo personalized our two visits and provided unbelievable hospitality. Walking home after a three-hour dinner, we watched fireflies and bats cavort in the countryside.We only wish we could have stayed longer, and we hope to return.

Fillipo and his wife have created a jewel.

“Italian Counryside Eden”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

It is a amazing how claustrophobic a car can be while driving in the rain at night with four people and luggage. All the more reason that this spacious house in the Italian countryside was spectacular. The owner was waiting at the door to greet us with an ample welcome basket and a warm CAKE! The rooms were very spacious by any standard, secured private underground parking garage like none I had ever seen, comfy beds and nice bathrooms all over the house. The views from virtually every room were the things poems are inspired by. Well done Phillipo and family.
