Ci troviamo a Portico di Romagna, un paesino Medioevale situato alle pendici dell'Appennino tra Toscana e Romagna.L'Hotel è ospitato in uno splendido palazzo ottocentesco, appartenuto in passato ad una delle famiglie più antiche del luogo.Oggi, anche se dotate di tutti i comfort, tutte le sale conservano le caratteristiche originali, nel rispetto dell'ambiente e della tradizione.I tendaggi, gli oggetti in ferro battuto e le ceramiche dipinte a mano ad opera di artigiani locali contribuiscono al fascino antico di questi luoghi.La conduzione famigliare crea un'atmosfera elegante eppure informale, facendo conoscere ai clienti il verde delle Foreste Casentinesi, le calde tradizioni romagnole e lo spirito accogliente della gente che abita questi splendidi territori.
