ABOUT THE ESTATE

Villa Gran Giardino is a rare example of an authentic Italian villa preserved in its entirety in a wonderful setting surrounded by gardens of major historic interest. This centuries-old estate consists of the main villa offered to you here, the estate parkland with its classical gardens, magical woodland inhabited by deer and pheasants, neighbouring vineyards producing the finest wines. The annexes include a farmhouse, orangery and a granary, as well as a private swimming pool and a tennis court - all set in 10 hectares of private land.

The origins of this house date back to the 15th century. Originally it was a Renaissance tower, which was transformed into a villa during the 18th century. It is elegantly laid out, over two floors, the rooms leading off, on each floor, from an imposing central hallway, decorated with delightful frescos in pale green and blue pastel shades, depicting romantic landscapes. Each floor measures approximately 350 square metres - a total of 700 m2 of living space. There are 5 bedrooms, all with views over the garden, and 4 bathrooms. The rooms are large and comfortable with authentic period furnishings and decor. 2 or 3 further bedrooms with bathrooms can be opened at additional charge in a dependance.

You may be aware that comparable houses have, almost without exception, been converted into self-catering establishments or hotels, and the scourge of modernisation has all too often stripped them of all their unique historical ambience and style, rendering them sadly anonymous. The property offered here has escaped such depredations as it has always been privately run by the family, thus retaining its authentic atmosphere. Villa Gran Giardino remains utterly unspoilt with all its original furnishings intact, giving you the chance to experience life as it may have been in the 18th century.

This is the place to embark on a voyage back in time, to long-gone eras and other worlds. You will find the warm glow of seasoned terracotta floors, one spacious room leading on to the next, gracious halls giving way to elegant drawing rooms, paintings adorning many a wall. The villa is completely furnished with antiques all in perfect keeping with the period and, as you sink into one of the many comfortable sofas, you will drift right back into the past. Then the gardens will beckon you, just a step or two away, the perfect setting for a romantic stroll with your beloved among the roses and fragrant lavender.

Es war traumhaft!!

Sehr geehrte Frau Röhrig,

nach unserem einwöchigen Aufenthalt in Villa Gran Giardino sind wir wieder wohlbehalten nach Hause zurückgekehrt. Das Haus wird der Beschreibung auf Ihrer Internetseite wirklich gerecht - es ist ein wunderschönes Objekt. Wir haben uns alle dort sehr wohl gefühlt und die herrliche Lage und Stille sehr genossen. Der Park ist zauberhaft, Imola ist romantisch, die Küche der Emilia-Romagna ein Hochgenuß, und das Wetter war wunderbar! Haben Sie also noch mal vielen Dank - wir haben Ihre Website bereits weiterempfohlen.

Liebe Grüsse,
Tanya König
