The ancient house, which was built in the 16th century and initially belonged to the family Ciani, was the birthplace of the Friulian painter Giovanni Napoleone Pellis (1888-1962). It stands in the historical centre of the small village of Ciconicco, just at the foot of the Morenic Amphitheatre, on the Friulian hills.
After hosting the German-Austrian headquarters during the invasion in 1917, in 1938 the valuable building was bought by the D’Antonis and soon became the first seat of the family’s farm. Recently the building has been restored preserving the original structure and eventually transformed into a bed and breakfast.
The bed and breakfast “Casa Pellis” offers the highest standards in comfort and hospitality.
It is ideal for numerous families, due to its large, spacious rooms.
There are a front yard and backyard for relaxing.
A parking lot is also available. In the large back garden you will find fruit plants and a children’s playground.
Small pets are welcome.
The bed and breakfast "Casa Pellis" has six rooms, three double and three single rooms, all with private facilities, TV-set with digital terrestrial and satellite TV, wireless internet connection and air conditioning.
On the mansard floor there is a cosy living-room, where you will find sofas to relax, a desk with internet installation and a bookshelf equipped with books about the life of the painter Giovanni Napoleone Pellis and about Fagagna and the nearby area.
The bed and breakfast Casa Pellis had a pleasure to host the actor, musician and presenter Neri Marcorè, who chose the tranquility and comfort offered by our facility to prepare to the best dates of his tour in the Friuli region.
The bed and breakfast "Casa Pellis" has been thoroughly renewed in 2012, according to the priciples of energy conservation and environmental sustainability, using the best technologies and the best building materials.
This has allowed to classify the house in the energy efficiency class A.
