About Alessandro

I was born and lived in this beautiful area on the hills of Bologna, of which I know every corner.

I love living in nature; when I'm not busy with the Borgo degli Ulivi, I go sailing to discover the beauties of the Mediterranean.

Alessandro purchased this cottage in 1981

Why Alessandro chose Valsamoggia

With Angela, my wife, after finishing my working season and traveling around the world, we decided to open our property to people like us who love to live and stay in the middle of nature immersed in tranquility but not far from the beauty of Italian art and culture

What makes this cottage unique

You will be on a hill with a splendid view of the surrounding landscapes in the middle of an area rich in culture (University of Bologna), of art (countless ancient cities rich in museums and monuments), of gastronomy (FICO at 25 minutes) and motor valley (Ferrari, Lamborghini, Pagani, Ducati etc.)

Had a most relaxing stay with Alessandro and Angela. The villa was spotless and Alessandro was extremely helpful while we were there, with advice as to where the best places to eat were.

Perfect for a quiet, picturesque relaxing holiday

Fantastic place to stay, relax and explore from

  • 5 of 5

We had a great couple of weeks here. Both Alessandro and Angela are so friendly and really helpful. The appartment has a very open and light athmosphere. It is very well equipped and has big ventilators to keep you relatively cool, something we could really use with 40 degrees outside. But of course there is also the beautiful pool with view of the surrounding hills. So nice to take a refreshing dip in the pool before visiting Florence, Verona or Venice. Thanks for a lovely stay and hope to meet once again!

Piscine spectaculaire, accueil chaleureux.

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement à l'étage, doté de deux chambres fermées et d'un troisième lit dans le salon, dispose d'une vue imprenable à travers une baie vitrée.

La piscine est également très jolie et bienvenue lors des chaleurs de l'été italien.

Cependant, l'accueil d'Alessandro et de sa famille est sans doute ce dont nous nous souviendrons le plus.

Grâce à lui, nous avons pu visiter des fabriques de vinaigre balsamique traditionnel et de miel.

Nous recommandons vivement cet appartement.

Beautiful country property near Bologna

  • 5 of 5

We just spent two weeks here, and had a wonderful time. Angela was a great hostess. The property is beautifully maintained, overlooking farms and estates. If touring, it is near Bologna, Modena, Ferrara and Revenna-- great Italian cities, with smaller crowds compared to Tuscany and Venice A tour of a balsamic vinegar producer is a must do. If you want to just relax, the views are great. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and new. If you want food, with Parma ham, Modena balsamic vinegar, and the gelato this is a great area.

We have toured extensively throughout Italy, and we highly recommend this property.

At the heart of the Emilia Romagna region, ' Il Borgo degli Ulivi ' is located in a strategic position in the centre of places of great artistic, cultural, sports and gastronomic interest.

The location is ideal not only to visit the old cities of the region, from Bologna to Ferrara, Ravenna, Parma, Modena and Reggio Emilia, all reachable in less than an hour, but also other beautiful cities rich in history and monuments such as Florence, Mantova and Verona.

Half an hour by car is Maranello with the Ferrari Headquarters/museum, 25 minutes from the Lamborghini and Pagani factories and 15 minutes from the Ducati Moto.

The "Borgo degli Ulivi" is located along the ' Strada dei Vini e dei Sapori ', in an area among the richest and most appreciated in the world for its gastronomy and oenological; Bologna, Modena, Parma. We are 25 minutes from FICO (Italian peasant factory the largest (10,000) sqm.agri-food park in the world that sums up the products and the cuisine of all Italians regions.

All this in a context of total relaxation and wellbeing immersed in a splendid hilly landscape and in a magnificent swimming pool in which to relax and recharge.

The surrounding hills are rich in medieval history, remain intact over time, lacking recent settlements, and dotted with castles, villas and ancient villages.

Within a few minutes you can reach 2 golf courses, one 18-hole, one 9-hole. For lovers of horse riding, even for children, there is a riding school at 1 km. If you like to bike you are plenty of circuit of different length or altimetric profile.
