Casa Di Accoglienza Emiliani (EMF102)

Fognano Emilia Romagna
Book Now

House of the Suore Domenicane del SS. Sacramento di Fognano

Located in a gorgeous part of Italy and close to the Tuscan border, this is a wonderful offering in the Italian countryside. Perfect for those travelers wanting do some sight seeing in Italy's larger cities but escape their hustle and bustle at night. Traditional, clean and majestic, this is a top choice for Emilia Romagna.

Fognano is a quiet town but boasts the Church of Saint Peter, built in 1464. The town is located on the main connecting road between Florence and Ravenna, giving travelers the opportunity to take day trips and explore the surrounding cities. The city of Faenza is also close by and well worth a visit. It is well known for its two main squares, Piazza del Popolo and Piazza della Libertá.
 
Rated 4.6 out of 5
This was my second, much anticipated stay this year, regrettably for only 3 days. It is a magical place. The interior with its high vaulted ceilings was refreshingly cool whilst it was sweltering outside; the accommodation is basic, but comfortable and spotlessly clean throughout. The sisters are charming, friendly and welcoming. The kitchen serves an authentic cuisine of the region, simple and delicious. There are no rich carpets or fashionable furnishings here, it does not need them.

The Casa Di Accoglienza Emiliani cannot be compared to other sorts of accommodation, and is unique in my personal experience. The facilities are basic, but entirely met my needs, and the sisters were unfailingly kind and helpful. It is off the beaten track and yet easily accessible using the nearby railway. I very much hope to return there in the next year.

My stay at Casa Di Accoglienza Emiliani was unforgettable! The sisters,staff, and guests are all incredibly wonderful people. I opted to eat lunch and dinner at the monastery, in addition to the complimentary breakfast. I am so happy I chose to do this! The food I ate (and wine I drank) at the monastery was some of the best I ate during my entire trip to Italy. The location of the monastery is very convenient to the train station and within walking distance to Brisaghella, which has a lot to offer. I recommend this monastery to all travellers who wish to experience local food and culture in Fognano.

The monastery was lovely, the nuns were friendly and helpful, and I was stretched to use my poor Italian, but they were very patient (one nun had a little English and was pleased to use it where possible). Fognano is a very pretty village, quiet with very narrow roads, and it was delightful to wander around the village and take pictures of the surrounding hills.

Very good example of a monastery run by a small group of welcoming but strict nuns. Despite not speaking English, with a few basic Italian phrases and hand gestures, communication was on balance easy. The building is massive and very quiet. Lovely views. The town itself is a bit dead but if you like walking, then Brisighella is well worth a visit. Grazie mille!!!

The Sisters and the guesthouse were both wonderful. Facilities are spartan, but clean and to a good standard. Breakfast and dinner were both excellent.
