A beautiful, peaceful place to relax. Wonderful surrounding views.

  • 4 of 5

The house was full of rustic charm and a very peaceful place to relax. Although away from it all, it was perfectly placed for getting to local amenities and for visiting Bologna, Florence, Venice and Siena by train or car. We had a very warm welcome when we arrived and enjoyed every moment.

Just a couple of things - it was incredibly hot when we arrived and the only thing that would have been good to have at the house would be some fans to help with sleeping at night! Also, there isn't internet as listed in the facilities. No problem for the adults, but our teenage son was expecting it.

I would certainly recommend a stay here. Thank you.

Maison isolée en pleine nature

  • 3 of 5

Séjour idéal pour se resourcer, loin de tout, dans la campage au milieu des animaux. 1/2 heure de Bologne et donc facile d'accès pour visites

A conseiller aux familles nombreuses

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house set in fantastic grounds. We used this as a base to travel around Italy including visiting Venice, Pisa, Lake Garda, Florence, Bologna and More. We cooked pizzas in the pizza oven in the garden each evening and drank wine made by the owners parents, they even brought the children cake. We stayed with another family and there was plenty of room for us all. I would recommend staying at the house, all I would advise it to bring very good insect repellent as in August with the weather being so hot and it being in the national park area there were a lot of insects and we did get bitten quite a bit. Thank you to the owner and parents for their help and friendly welcome I am sure we will be back again x

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your praise's words. To find insects during summer in a natural park is unavoidable.We,normally, are taking our measures with a pest control arounmd the house in the due time.Unfortunately the rain can decrease the efficiency of the control. We are happy that you intend to come asgain

Our expectations were fulfilled, the house was exactly as on pictures. We were lucky to meet owner Giovanni-very helpful and nice person. Nature lovers will adore it, birds and animals you can hear all night. House has big garden, were children's can play, we got also the most tasty cherries in the world. We used train to one day trip to Bologna. Only suggestion to have more toys for kids. They don'tneed much some swing would be enough. I would certainly recommend it to friends
