Forgotten fruits

Another autumn is bringing the well-known Forgotten Fruits Festival in Casola Valsenio (1st and 2nd week of October). Villagers and farmers are setting up colorful food stands to delight and attract our interest and taste.

They offer jams and cakes made with fox pears, pomegranates, quince apples and pears, blackthorn and jujube fruits. They also sell plenty of fresh fruits from their gardens.

Enjoy some shots!

A brand new video by Cornelis

Cornelis’ latest experiment is a drone flight over Porcaticcio and a few nice spots of our valley. Here is the result. Still to learn and improve, but this is Cornelis’ first step to show you our paradise from a different point of view. Enjoy!

The red room

We present you our new RED ROOM … the last bedroom of a 8-year renovation.

A total work that Cornelis started last August: floor, walls, roof and decoration. A few old beams suggested him the idea to create a romantic unique double bed.

The red room can host up to 3 guests in La Casa-Torre. The apartment is now complete: 2 bedrooms, a wide bathroom, a living room and a kitchen, all of them with our original touch.

Over the fog

2 p.m. Today we paid a visit to Ivano, a friend that bought an old house on the Gypsum Mountain. Ivano is working in Carné Park and finally decided to project his own guest house. What a view over the fog. But who is garding the place? Artica, Ivano’s wolf!

Till now also Porcaticcio has been blessed  with full sun and bright stars in the night, while a little more down to the plain the fog is deleting colors and light.


Such a mild November!

Apennines, 18°C degrees, isn’t that amazing on 12th November ! Our mood is quite high after 10 days full sun and such a mild temperature. Our Dutch guests were really lucky to book this week. We normally do not rent in November, but we are changing our mind and adapting to the gifts of Nature. Enjoy these warm colors.
