The "Romagnola" Cabin is one of two Bassara Cabins: a typical marsh hideaway, thatched with marsh reeds, with great outdoor green space, queen size bed, bathroom with shower and kitchen with fireplace. Open all year, it is located close to the Valleys of Argenta (FE), 6th Station of the Po Delta Park, at about 40Km from Ferrara, Ravenna and Bologna. Ideal for a romantic or family vacation surrounded by nature, enjoying all the comforts of a real apartment. You can also rent both the cabins.

The space
Both Bassara Cabins are located on a small farm bearing the same name, that covers a total area of 55 hectares. They are built like typical marsh hideaways, thatched with marsh reeds.

For centuries, our farm produced and sold various kinds of marsh weeds, such as common reed, carex and broadleaf cattail.
Following this tradition, our agribusiness has recently started harvesting marsh weeds again to provide raw material for restoration, maintenance and construction of traditional common reed cabins, from scratch.

Where you’ll be

Argenta, Ferrara, Italy

Our cabins are ideal for your visit, in the heart of nature, and they’re also within walking distance of Argenta (FE).

Located next to the Valli di Argenta, sixth station at the Po Delta Park in Emilia Romagna, they are the ideal starting point to enjoy the beauty of our environment.

The Museo delle Valli di Argenta, the visitor center in the park, is only 6 kms away from the cabins and you can also get there by following the bicycle path that runs along the wetlands of Bassarone and Campotto.

The Valli di Argenta are freshwater wetlands, internationally recognized by the Ramsar Convention.
They consist of 3 emergency containers and a hygrophilous, woodland area of 1600 hectares; some areas are accessible only through a booked guided tour or by taking part in the excursions organized by the museum. Other areas on the other hand, are always freely accessible.

There are 2 other museums to visit, along with the before-mentioned historical – naturalistic Museo delle Valli di Argenta: the Museo della Bonifica, a functioning pumping station that guarantees a safe hydraulics system for the lower plains of Bologna and the Museo Civico, with an archaeological section and picture gallery.
“As the crow flies” (in a straight line distance), in front of the cabins, at a big park that is open to everyone, you will find the beautiful Pieve di San Giorgio, the most ancient monument in the province of Ferrara, dating back to 569 A.D.

Sono Marco e assieme a mia moglie Adele gestisco dal 2008 le capanne Bassara: 2 veri e propri rifugi di valle con copertura in canna. Conduco, assieme ai miei fratelli, anche un'azienda agricola, in cui produciamo seminativi, quali antiche varietà di grano, soia, orticole industriali e canna palustre, antica produzione locale con cui si costruivano le capanne o rifugi di valle in cui abbiamo il piacere di ospitarvi. Il podere situato a sinistra del fiume Reno è a servizio del nostro punto vendita, ad Argenta, che offre vino in bottiglia e sfuso per tutto l'anno, frutta e orticole di stagione: si comincia con le fragole, si prosegue con ciliegie, albicocche, pesche, prugne e tanti prodotti dell'orto. Non vediamo l’ora di accogliervi nelle nostre capanne, dove siamo certi trascorrerete un soggiorno unico. My name is Marco and together with my wife Adele, I run the Bassara Cabins: two downright marsh hideaways covered with reeds. I also run an agribusiness with my brothers, where we produce crops, including ancient varieties of grain, soy, fruits and vegetables for industrial processing and marsh reeds, an ancient local production which was used for building cabins or valley hideaways, where we are happy to welcome you. The farm located on the left side of the Reno river is at the service of our shop in Argenta, that sells bottled and cask wine all year long, seasonal fruits and vegetables: starting with strawberries, then cherries, apricots, peaches, prunes and many more garden produce. We can’t wait to welcome you to our cabins, where we are sure you will experience a unique holiday.
