Last April our Bacio was father again! The female dogs of our neighbour Pierangelo are too attractive for him and they are all quite free to walk from one house to the other, so … When we decided to pay a visit to Pierangelo, we fell in love right away with Spotty (“Macchietta”). It was time to have another dog, a daughter of Bacio! As all lively puppies she is taking our shoes, grabbing and making a mess with the toilet paper, figthing with an empty plastic bottle (like Bacio …). A new sparkling life in Porcaticcio di Sopra. Spotty has now been with us for one and a half month and doubled her size and weight. Enjoy a few picture!

Discovering Senio River

Last Sunday I joined an excursion to discover the head of Senio and walk along the river. A beatiful day in the forest, with the music of water in the head and its purity in the eyes.  I also had a bit of adventure, as I never tried a descent with harness before. Well … I loved it! Andrea is a perfect guide, offering a safe adventure and interesting information about the environment and its history.

Snow in Porcaticcio

neve 2014


Good Morning Snow! It is always a nice emotion to wake up and see this landscape. Boots, gloves and a warm jacket and we are ready for a little walk to enjoy the view. By the way, Bacio, our border collie, is always the happiest one.

La Casa-torre, a new apartment

Outside (3)After eight years, we are ready to offer a new holiday apartment in our mansion: La Casa-torre. By the moment it will host max. 3 guests, but Cornelis is working to complete a second huge bedroom that will host up to 4 persons. We have been living in this part of the house, since we moved from La Casetta in 2009. So you will rent more than just a holiday house.

kitchen 1In summer time guests will use our huge kitchen, including all facilities like a 90 cm electric oven, a dish washer, a large fridge/freezer and a spacious granite blade. Those who love cooking,  expecially Italian food, could find it quite attractive. My mother Adele is a specialist of Emilia Romagna homemade pasta and will be happy to show and teach you how to make it. A large private terrace in front of the apartment is ideal for outdoor lunches and dinners.

The front door is an independent entrance to the apartment, as we live in the tower and we have access to it from the backside of the house. You are welcome from May 2015!

A new website!

Time to think about 2015!

After five years, lots of restoration and a lovely experience with our guests, here is our new website, a dynamic blog, that will help us to stay in contact and update you about Porcaticcio di Sopra and the surroundings.  We also like to know your opinion. That will be of great help to improve.

Thank you! Grazie!
