Location and Surrounding Area. Immersed in a peaceful 4000-square-meter private park, this elegant four-bedroom villa is ideally located to offer complete privacy and tranquility to its guests. Nestled among gently rolling hills with wonderful views of Bologna, this exclusive property represents the perfect location for unforgettable day trips to the most beautiful towns in Emilia-Romagna and provides a unique opportunity to admire its glorious countryside while soaking up the region’s unique architectural beauty and ancient history.
The villa is just a stone’s throw away from Castel San Pietro Terme, a popular and renowned thermal spa resort. Although the Castel San Pietro Terme was founded in 1870, the healing power of its sodium chloride, bromide and iodide-rich sulfur water was known as far back as 1337. Far from the hustle and bustle of the city and nestled in the lush greenery of 4000-square-meter parkland, the complex is an oasis of peace and harmony, just half an hour drive from Bologna.
The villa is a few kilometers from Dozza, a fairy-tale town with an imposing hillside fortress. Dozza is also famous for the many paintings that adorn the facades of the houses and give the town a distinctive and colorful appearance. The town hosts the Biennial Festival of the Painted Wall, an event during which famous artists from different backgrounds paint artworks on the walls of the houses, turning Dozza into an authentic open-air art gallery.
The villa is also a few kilometers from Bologna, the capital of Emilia-Romagna. The opening of a foodie theme park will further elevate Bologna’s reputation as Italy’s culinary capital, but the city has plenty more to offer. Piazza Maggiore is surrounded by medieval palaces and home to the church of San Petronio. A passage leads to Piazza del Nettuno, dominated by its monumental 16th-century fountain. The nearby streets, sheltered by porticoes, are perfect for strolling, dining, and a spot of shopping.
In less than one hour by car, you can easily reach the medieval city of Ferrara, listed as a UNESCO heritage site. The center of Ferrara combines buildings from different periods into a perfect amalgam of the medieval with the Renaissance, and so a visit to Ferrara is truly a journey into the past. A weekend would be enough time to explore the marvels of the city's art and architecture, but an extra day allows you to venture beyond its walls and get back to nature in the Po Delta.
