Le Nicchie Apartment Bagno di Romagna Charming property of the 17th century renovated in 2008
Elegant property of the 17th century, completely renovated in 2008, maintaining the original layout, restoring the antique furniture and dusting off any old curious that could summon up echoes of the past.
We know the origins of Casa Biozzi much from the date 1666 that is stamped on a brick of the terracotta floor in the piano nobile kitchen, and from the coat-of-arms over the ancient fireplace and the rusticated stone arch around the ground floor entrance.
This coat-of-arms, six mountains and a star, seems to have belonged to the Chigi family, more specifically to Pope Alexander VII Chigi, who lived in this era, dying in 1667.
The beautiful stairway in Casa Biozzi is made of 19th century "pietra serena" and still features its original cast-iron balustrade.
The property is very centrally located, in the proximity to local infrastructures, thermal and wellness spa, shops and restaurants.
Accommodation Summary : Here the kitchen and living area are two separate rooms. In the kitchen: the fratino table, the small madia, and the corner cupboard are from the 17th century, while ceramic dishes, oil lamps and old tools have been incorporated into the decor in memory of a past that is gone but not forgotten.
