Sitting on a hillside 200 metres above the valley of the River Secchia, Villa Lugara was a casa canonica, a church farm house, and dates from at least the 16th century. Many of our good friends who live in Lugara are offspring of the housekeeper of the last priest, Don Andrea, and they are delighted to see their old home brought back from dereliction by us in 2015.
The hamlet of Lugara, is in the foothills of the Apennine mountains of the Emilia Romagna. Surrounded by fields and oak woods and close to a network of ancient pilgrim pathways running along the Crinale, the mountain ridges.
The house has a productive kitchen garden and it is possible to eat exceptionally well from very locally produced food.
