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.

Why Fiona Joan Dunk chose Monteveglio
The setting of Ca Gioiosa is so peaceful and 'green' with lovely views
yet strategically located for getting to so many wonderful places to visit without having to spend hours on twisty mountain roads to get back to civilization.
