EXTREME ITALIAN COUNTRY FARMHOUSE

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Modena City

Dragodena is a private 15th century Italian stone farmhouse for rent with Wi-Fi, large salon, fully equipped kitchen, 6 beautiful bedrooms and a panoramic view of the fields and forests of the Apennine Hills. The isolated and dominant position of this medieval farm house guarantees total privacy and complete tranquility for a completely relaxing vacation. Located between Florence and Bologna, Dragodena is an excellent rental base for exploring both central and northern Italy from Sienna to La Spezia and from Pisa to Venice. With 4088 square feet of space, Dragodena is the perfect refuge for a large group of friends, a family reunion or as a refuge for those seeking to be far away from the maddening crowd.

Dragodena has a storied past reaching back 600 years. Both a farm house and a small fortress it has seen battle on its fields over the many centuries until WWII when it was requisitioned by the German Army and used as a base. After the war Dragodena was shut up with everything in it until 2007 when it was sold to its present owner, Paul Magid, founder of the world renowned Flying Karamazov Brothes. That it was virtuly untouched for over 60 years is what sets Dragodena apart as the a unique vacation rental property for those who want the true Italian country experience.

Stunningly Beautiful and Perfectly Located

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I loved our two week stay in this magnificent 600 year old house. It provided a perfect combination of rustic charm and modern convenience. This huge house served as our home base for our adventures throughout the region, and it was always wonderful to return to this peaceful retreat via the winding hilly roads. The landscape all around is breathtaking with wonderful little villages near-by. We can't wait to return to Italy and would definitely come back to this special place.

You can drive to Dragodena but it is not easily found on maps. From the Bologna airport take the Tangenziale towards Caselecchio. Then follow directions for Tole and exit on to SS 26. Continue through the town of Tolè and after 1 kilometer make a right towards La Roca di Rufano. Drive for 2 kilometers and turn into the driveway of Agriturismo, La Fenice, where you will be met. From here you will be guided to Dragodena

Restaurants - The area is filled with local restaurants, trattorias, osterias, pizzarias and agriculturismos. We recommend La Fenice, Osteria Santa Lucia and La Fogna

During the fall this is one most coveted areas in which truffles are found. For a fraction of a what they cost anywhere else you by locally found truffles at Bortalani's Alimentari

This is also an area famous for it ricottas and parmegiano - go to Caseificio Bortalani for what some consider the best ricotta to be found in Italy.

Mountain Biking and hiking right from the house in Dragodena itself is a wonderful experience. There are many trails to choose from. Bikers come from all over the word to wheel the trails and roads of the Apennines. Dragodena is the perfect base for a bicycle group.

There are many museums in the area little known elsewhere. There is the Chestnut museum in nearby Lamè and a museum dedicated to the battles of WWII in various small towns in the area.
