PRETTY VINEYARD PROPERTY WITH SMALL POOL, SLEEPS 6 + 2 BOLOGNA AIRPORT 25KM

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Monteveglio - Ca' Gioiosa

Versatile accommodation in beautiful rural setting

Pretty house in the hills between Bologna and Modena, peaceful location, unspoilt views, good cheap local restaurants, small cool pool 4mx 4.5m for summer dips.. Within easy reach for day trips to Parma, Mantua, Ferrara, Ravenna, Verona and Florence-seaside (Adriatic coast) 60 miles. Ferrari and Ducati factories nearby. English and French spoken.

Local towns of Monteveglio and Bazzano just 4 miles away with a train link into Bologna. Supermarkets, street markets, hospital etc.

The rental accommodation catering for parties of 2- 6 persons ( + an extra 2 small children ) is on the ground floor of the house.

This is a very interesting and yet unspoilt part of Italy. There are endless small towns to discover and of course Bologna is a must! We are down the road from Maranello which should ring a bell to any Ferrari fans or perhaps I could suggest the ceramic museum at Faenza - quite amazing. during the spring and summer months there are many local fiestas in the evening - if you fancy a taste of the real Italian life.

For wine lovers this is an incredible spot for vineyards and of course the Vendemmia (grape harvesting) in September is very interesting. Ca Gioiosa has its own vineyard and just down the road there is a choice of 3 agriturismi (farm restaurants?) where you can still eat yourself silly for £25(5 courses including wine).

In the recent years we have had many house hunters to stay as this area is ' taking off 'now that Tuscany and Umbria have been bought out. We are very happy to provide information to guests in their search for a house and even to show them around.

CA GIOIOSA, MONTEVEGLIO

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed at Ca Gioiosa around 6 or 7 times now, since 2006. Every time we leave we cannot wait to be back again for another visit! The house and surrounding countryside are gorgeous - more rugged than Tuscany. We are currently searching for a property in the area and have booked to stay at Ca Gioiosa again this year. Fiona's house is very clean, tidy and comfortable and there is always something new to enjoy each time we go back!
We have previously taken friends with us and have enjoyed day trips out to Venice, Verona, Bologna, as well as other attractions closer to the house. You will need a car to get around, although if you are nervous of driving abroad you can just drive down to Bazzano (quiet non-scary road) and take the little local train from there into Bologna - and from there you can go just about anywhere in Italy!
There are some fantastic (and shockingly cheap!) restaurants close by, all of which Fiona can direct you to - nearby Montebudello is a firm favourite. There is also a large Carrefour supermarket 5/10 minutes away - for those essential items.
The views are beautiful and peaceful and if you need to get away from it all, send the kids out with Dad to see the Ferrari or Ducati Factories, sit with your feet in the pool on a hot day - the silence is amazing - grab a bottle of local vino from the Cantina in Bazzano and enjoy!
Have a great holiday!

A BEAUTIFUL GEM IN THE HILLS OF EMILIA ROMAGNA

  • 5 out of 5
Ca Gioiosa was truly a wonderful place to stay while we were travelling in Emilia Romagna. The accommodations were comfortable and the view from the house is spectacular. There was plenty of material to read through and directions (personalized by Fiona and Andrew) to every possible destination in the surrounding area. But what made our week even more memorable was having the opportunity to meet Fiona and Andrew. They made Ca Gioiosa a home for us for our week. They are genuine, real people and a true pleasure to know. We do hope our paths can cross again.

PERFECT

  • 5 out of 5
Everything that has been written about the house and the hosts is absolutely correct. Location is about as perfect as anyone can find. Everything is within an hour or two at the most of travel time. From here we visited Bologna, Parma, Modena, Verona, Ravenna and we were even able to travel to Cinque Terre, a little over two hours away. The villa is just charming and high up to allow a beautiful view of the valley. Inside was immaculate. The kitchen very well appointed with all utensils. What can we say about the hosts, they were amazing. Friendly, knowledgeable and available when we needed something. It was an amazing experience.

THE PERFECT STOP.

  • 5 out of 5
I highly recommend Fiona's lovely home and her expert advice. Her restaurant recommendations were the best places we ate in Italy. They far outclassed and underpriced what tripadvisor's top picks were. Everything about the accommodation is comfortable and thoughtfully appointed. The outdoor areas are charming. I just wish we had booked for longer to have more time to sit, relax, and enjoy the views with a glass of wine.

CA GIOIOSA - OUR PERFECT HOLIDAY DESTINATION!!!

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned home after having spent the last two fantastic weeks at Ca Gioiosa. The holiday was planned for over twelve months with many lists being made of where to go and what to do. We initially booked Ca Gioiosa because of the excellent reviews we had read but to be honest, we didn't really believe anybody could be such a perfect hostess however Fiona definitely is!

We were greeted on arrival by Fiona and Andrew and were made to feel welcomed and at home immediately. We holidayed with our two teenage sons and another family who also had two teenagers.

Fiona gave us a local tour the following morning to find the supermarket, cheese factory and where to get the most superb, locally grown fruit and salad we had ever tasted. On the way back, we were introduced to the 'Top Of The World,' the most spectacular view we have ever seen. Where, on a clear day, you can see Venice.

Ca Gioiosa is perfectly situated to tour Northern Italy. We visited Lake Garda, Verona, Venice, Bologna, Florence and Palma. Which were all easily reachable within a couple of hours. We also visited the Ferrari and Lamborghini museums which were much closer.

We ate out a lot on our visits but can honestly say that the best meals we had were when Fiona cooked for us. He bolognaise and lasagne are to die for!

We also catered for ourselves a few times using the excellent BBQ and twice used the pizza oven with fantastic results. The teenagers were kept occupied with the pool and the table tennis.

The house is kept immaculately clean and tidy.

We were all sad to be leaving Ca Gioiosa after such a fantastic fortnight but left feeling that we'd made two very good friends in Fiona and Andrew.

Can't wait to go back!!!

Ideal for families with teenagers, couples, relaxing and sightseeing holidays.

WONDERFUL PLACE - GORGEOUS PEOPLE

  • 5 out of 5
It was a wonderful place to stay - it was close to everything, yet private. As for the house - it was perfect. 3 big bedrooms, each one with a separate bathroom. It was also a perfect place for daytrips to major cities like Ravenna, Bologna etc

But what made this place so special - were the owners. Fiona made you feel welcome from the first second we arrived. She gave you tips on where to go - and where not to go (she probably saved us a huge fine when we drove to Bologna - and she showed us exactly where we could go without getting a fine). She was just generally an extremely nice person. You will NOT regret visiting this place - I just can't see that being possible.
