You will appreciate the fine details of this delicate restoration project. The owners Orietta and Franco bought the place in 2001 and have since invested a lot of time, effort and money to bring it up to tip top condition. Everything that could be preserved has been, such as the stones in the floor which were all removed, cleaned and put back, and also the beautiful wooden ceilings. Thus maintaining the original atmosphere and character. The decor is a stunning combination of modern Italian design mixed with beautiful antiques.

All 8 rooms have a bathroom with a shower, a toilet and hairdryer, and the rooms 'Romantic' also have a Jacuzzi with aromatherapy. Romantic and Comfort rooms have a small seating area with a sofa. There is satellite TV (flat screen), a telephone, a mini-bar, air conditioning, a safety deposit box, coffee and tea facilities - and the only thing that really separates the rooms from each other is the size. The 2 family rooms (2 adults and 2 children under 15) are extended, and consist of a living room, a bedroom with a double bed, a room with a double sofa bed and one or two bathrooms. There is no elevator in the annex.
The rooms either overlook the garden and the fields or the large grassy courtyard which also covers the underground garage. Franco likes cars and thinks that they should be well kept; hence he created the underground garage and covered it with a lawn and an orchard. There is also a large garden behind the main building which is at your disposal.
Relais Corte Guastalla has a large beautiful living room, a breakfast room with a fireplace, a conference room with antique stone columns and even a fireplace with modern art on the walls. In addition, there is a small library, also with fireplace and internet access.
You can relax around the pool and take a swim and also a jacuzzi if you wish. The pool is cleaned with oxygen and therefore does not contain chlorine and can be used between 9am and 8pm. There are some permanent residents that live on the estate also in privately owned apartments.
There are many good local restaurants in the area and if you like to eat in Michelin star restaurants, the area has quite a choice. Both Orietta and Franco are happy to provide you with advice. As Relais Corte Guastalla is rural and far from everything, one must be prepared for peace and quiet most of the time, however, during harvest periods there can be sounds of the farm machinery.
You reach the site along a good gravel road (about 1 mile) - and the area's roads are often used by enthusiastic cyclists on mountain bikes. The address Sona is a little misleading, since Sona is north of the highway while Corte Gustalla is located south of the highway, approx. 5 km west of the town of Sommacampagna.
Relax rooms have a telephone, television, air conditioning and a private bathroom. They are extremely spacious and have beautiful wooden beams on the ceiling.
