Franco was born in Tuscany and has known Teresa on a trip to Africa. Both are travel enthusiasts.

In 1999, Franco, Teresa, and the kids Antonio and Anna from Tuscany are transfered in Dozza.

Franco immediately was fascinated by Villa Calanco, dwelling which since 1700 has been owned by the family of Teresa

As a restorer has personally coordinated and executed many of the restoration works that have lasted over 10 years.

Teresa, graduate in history, works at the State Archives of Imola.

Antonio study architecture at the University of Bologna, venue of Cesena and Anna study at high school in Imola.

Privileged location - In peaceful countryside but easy to reach from the motorway, from the train station, airport of Bologna. Excellent and convenient base for visits cultural tourism. A few minutes from all services, various typical restaurants, food stores and supermarket.

Charming apartments - Spacious, independent and real quality apartments, characteristic, carefully restored and equipped with all comforts and furnished keeping intact the charm of the rural tradition of Romagna.

We believe that we are offering something that has been missing in Romagna: not average farm holiday accommodation, not uninspiring flats, but cozy apartments in historical villa in which the owners themselves reside, amid the charm of history , comfort and tradition.

Family management - Managing reservations, keys delivery, ceck-in and ceck-out run by Franco and his family who live in the main part of the villa and are always available for any question or information

GREAT ATMOSPHERE!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 7 days in apartment Antonio. The apartment and the entire complex has been renovated and decorated with care. The property has a refined, civilized and friendly atmosphere and so is the owner. If you don't have to pay a deposit and cleaningcosts that gives a sense of mutual trust and respect!

COMFORTABLE CALM PLACE PLUS CHARMING LANDSCAPE.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for two weeks in the apartment Antonio, well-equipped and clean. The beautiful garden around the well-restored Villa is perfect for relaxing as well as for children to play. Franco offered a lot of updated information for getting familar with Dozza and the region around. The place is an excellent starting point for a number of short and longer excursions. There are good shopping opportunities, especially in the near Imola. That's definitely a place to come back and stop by at least for a few days.

VILLA CALANCO - GREAT HOLIDAY LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was comfortable and spotlessly clean with a wonderful view of pine trees framed by the sitting room window. Franco, Teresa and the family were delightful, friendly hosts - we really enjoyed our lesson in Romagnola cuisine and would recommend this to anyone who is an enthusiastic cook.
The area has so many wonderful places to visit, we particularly liked Dozza, San Leo, Ferrara and Bologna but we also enjoyed sitting in the gardens being serenaded by cuckoos, watching the goats and enjoying the views.
A great place for couples or families which will be even better when there is a pool. A car is essential.

VILLA CALANCO - APARTMENT ANTONIO

  • 5 of 5
Lovely restored apartment within a villa, clean and well maintained. Franco and his family are very friendly and welcoming. Good location for exploring the area, and Dozza lives up to its reputation of being one of Italy's most beautiful villages. Would definitely recommend and return to.

DER PERFEKTE AUFTAKT FÜR UNSEREN ITALIENURLAUB

  • 5 of 5
wir haben 5 Nächte im Apartment Antonio gewohnt und die hier eingestellten Fotos werden allem gerecht. Es ist alles mit so viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet, eine perfekte Kombi aus alt, neu und dabei noch praktikabel. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und es gab ein Buch in dem wir alle nötigen Informationen nachlesen konnten. Es gibt einen riesigen sehr gepflegten Garten in dem man sich aufhalten kann. Der Vermieter ist zurückhaltend und sehr freundlich, wenn man eine Frage hat aber immer schnell zu finden. Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten finden sich im nahe gelegenen Dozza, einem wunderschönen kleinen Künstlerdorf oder wer es größer mag etwas weiter weg in Imola. Wir haben Ausflüge nach Bologna, Ravenna, Parma oder Ferrara unternommen, alles leicht über die Autobahn zu erreichen oder mit dem Zug. Wir haben und werden diese wunderschöne Unterkunft immer gern weiterempfehlen und freuen uns auf unseren nächsten Besuch.

Dozza

Dozza is situated on the crest of a hill gently down toward the Via Emilia between Bologna and Imola, Dozza looks like a touch of color, in an atmosphere outside of time. A medieval village which ancient structure is still well preserved. Dozza is famous for “The Biennal Painted Wall” during which the village becomes alive with artists coming from all over the world who paint directly on the walls of the houses. So the village, with its typical 'to zone' structure surrounded by city walls becomes a beautiful open air art gallery always visible. We also suggest to visit the wonderful and mighty fortress with the adjoining Enoteca Regionale Emilia Romagna, where it is possible to taste and buy the regional wines.

Dozza, is part of the club 'The Most Beautiful Villages in Italy', an association for promoting the great heritage of history, arts, culture, environment and traditions present in the small Italian towns which are ,by the most part, excluded from the flows of tourists.
