- english, italian
After holidaying in Italy for 10+ years, we purchased Casa Ruspiano in 2005. We completely restored the villa and barn during 2007 and more than doubled the available living space. Plus added all features that you would expect of a modern villa without loosing the classic Italian style. Of course to enjoy those long hot Italian summer's we added a large swimming pool too.
Sandra purchased this Villa in 2005

We loved the location - set in it's own private grounds with stunning views. Also located just 1.5 kms from major town - we can enjoy our stays but also access the daily essentials supermarkets, restaurants, train stations etc with ease.

We all had such a wonderful time! Loved the house... hope to come back very soon
I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for booking our villa in Italy for your holiday.
An amazing gem in the hills of Emilio-Romagna!
My friends and I had an amazing stay at Casa Ruspiano. The house is well appointed and secluded...just what us city folk were seeking. Atop our own little mountain the Casa welcomes you with incredible views, a shimmering pool, and lots of outdoor areas to relax and enjoy. We explored the area from Bologna and Modena to the north to Pistoia to the south. Sandra was incredibly responsive and helped to connect us with locals to create a perfect experience. Chef Angela prepared us an incredible feast on our final evening and it is a moment we won’t soon forget. Come to reset and leave enriched! I hope to be back!
Wonderful quiet Villa
We were a group of 10 and the villa were perfect to spent a relaxing and quiet week. The view is wonderful and the villa well- agenced and neat.
Thank you for this week, we'll definitely think of your villa if we come back in Italy.
Thank you so much for the great feedback. I am so pleased that your family group enjoyed their August stay at our villa. Please do think of our villa again for your next stay in Italy.
Excellent villa for sharing time with friends.
10 adults used this villa as a home base for 2 1/2 weeks while we traveled to Florence, Venice, Lucca and Pisa. It is ideal for sharing time with friends, cooking and exploring the country side. The villa is well equiped, has good wifi coverage and is very comfortable. A car is an absolute must for trips to town for groceries and the train station. The villa Manager, Angela, is responsive to your needs and speaks English, which was nice. We had a fabulous time at Villa Ruspiano.
Thank you so much for the great feedback. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our villa and the wonderful region of Italy. Thank you again for your booking and I wish you happy travels for the future.
To holiday in Vergato is a real Italian delight and what awaits you at this fabulous accommodation is truly a wonderful experience; it's ideal for family get togethers.The villa is well cared for and any request is taken into consideration. Whilst every amenity is provided to enable you to self cater you must try some of the local restaurants , pizzaria La Brace in the village does great pizza.
For days out getting into Bologna and Florence are well worth a visit, train fares are modestly priced. If you're an early riser you could even consider a day in Verona , as this is quite a compact city the main sights are "do able" in a day. I would highly recommend to friends and family!
Thank you for your lovely review - we always appreciate guest feedback. Hope to see you again in the future.
Lovely relaxing stay!
Spent 7 days at this lovely villa with family and friends and absolutely loved it. Great interiors with lovely contemporary finish. Plenty of space for the 10 people in our party to relax and unwind. The pool is enormous and the kids simply did not want to get out of it. Practical things - town is just 1km away and has everything that you need. That plus the Italian sunshine and food - you can't ask for more!
Thank you for the great feedback - so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you see you in again in this beautiful part of Italy.
