Description from manager

Rolling hills as far as the eye can see, alfresco meals under a pergola, walks to a quaint village, wine tasting at nearby vineyards – enjoy the many charms of the Italian countryside at this restored hilltop farmhouse. Set amidst a private garden with a pool, the farmhouse is an ideal place from which to explore the regions of Emilia Romagna and northern Tuscany.

(6,000 m2/ 64,584 ft2)


A paved road leads from the main road (strada statale) to the farmhouse and grounds. The property is partially fenced and surrounded by neighboring fields. There is a private, terraced garden with several shaded sitting areas, a shaded pergola with a table and chairs for alfresco dining, and a barbecue. The swimming pool (5 x 10 x 1.4 m, open May to September) offers panoramic views of the valley, 6 sunbeds, 4 armchairs and umbrellas. An outdoor shower with hot/cold water is located next to the pool area. Close to the house there is a small building that houses an additional dining area with a table. A washing machine is located outside, in the back of the house, and there are parking spaces for 4 cars.

About the area

<p>The farmhouse is located on a hilltop near the southeastern corner of the Emilia-Romagna region, bordering the Foresti Casentinesi, a national park extending southward into Tuscany. A public tennis court is located about 300 meters away, and the quiet village of Tredozio is 800 meters (less than a 10-minute walk) away. A small river runs through Tredozio, where there are restaurants (including the excellent Mulino di San Michele, which is housed in an old water mill), grocery shops, coffee bars, a butcher, bank with ATM and post office. Palazzo Fantini, a 17th-century residence, offers tours of its beautiful garden as well as seasonal courtyard concerts. In the summer months, mountain bikes may be rented from the small information area in the village center. Buses run from the village to Faenza and Forli. The area’s scenic vineyards offer wine tasting starting about 10 kilometers from the villa, and the many small villages and towns make for excellent exploring during half-day and daylong trips. </p> <p> Parma: 182 km/ 113 mi<br/> Modena: 128 km/ 79.5 mi<br/> Florence: 80 km/ 49.7 mi<br/> Bologna: 75 km/ 46.6 mi<br/> Ravenna: 69 km/ 42.8 mi<br/> Forlì: 45 km/ 27.9 mi<br/> Faenza: 28 km/ 17.3 mi<br/> San Benedetto in Alpe (national park): 25 km/ 15.5 mi<br/> Brisighella: 21 km/ 13 mi<br/> Portico di Romagna: 16 km/ 9.9 mi<br/> Vineyards: 10 to 25 km/ 6.2 – 15.5 mi<br/> Modigliana: 9 km/ 5.5 mi<br/> Tredozio: 800 m/ 2,625 ft </p>
