"This is a wonderful villa midway Ferrara and Bologna, located in a lovely wee village almost untouched by the tourist world and off the beaten track. We had a beautiful stay in this house and we can confirm that the place is absolutely charming, clean, confy, elegant and very, very romantic. The house, the gorgeous view on the open fields and the quiet of this rural atmosphere are great. The location is ideal for exploring the Emilia region and all the beautiful wineries and towns all around (Bologna, Ferrara, Padua...), with venice at a stone's throw. The only drawback is that you definitely need a car. Many thanks Marcella for your kindness and delicious olive oil and wine. We enjoyed our time greatly at your place :) We'll be back."
