Why come to the Forestale ? >

An address nestled in a preserved nature

Far from the beaten track and the big Italian cities, La Forestale Luxury Ecolodge is located in a haven of peace and tranquility in the Furlo Gorge, on the banks of the Candigliano River.

Established in a former forest ranger's barracks, the establishment has been completely renovated and refurbished by Don Merlino to make it a relaxing and authentic place. The terraces are fully integrated into the architecture of the building and offer visitors superb 180° views of the region. The founder's idea is to offer the traveler a complete immersion in nature.

Themed rooms with unique design

Don Merlino's passion for design is reflected in the unique decoration of each room. The price for a night for two people at La Forestale ranges from €129 to €289, including breakfast.

The apartment in complete autonomy

Ideal for travelers looking for autonomy and independence, the Apartment offers a modern equipped kitchen, a spacious bathroom, and a bright bedroom. Thanks to the sofa bed, come for 2, 3 or 4 people and combine comfort, contemporary design and freedom during your vacation.

B&B rooms

3 rooms with very different atmospheres can be booked at La Forestale :

  • La Gandhi, with its Zen and relaxing atmosphere;
  • La Rabhi, in homage to Pierre Rabhi and his concept of "Happy Sobriety";
  • The Mandela, with a breathtaking view of Monte Paganuccio and the river from the terrace.

The Rabhi and Gandhi can be combined to become a family room.
