Make a holiday rental farmhouse of country house in Emilia Romagna, Italy your home away from home

Emilia Romagna is one of the 20 regions of Italy, stretching from the Adriatic Sea to the Apennines. The region is highly rural, with beautiful Emilia Romagna country houses adorning the gently undulating countryside of the huge plain which reaches from the coast to the foothills of the Apennines. Emilia Romagna is famous for its cuisine, especially cheese and Brodetto, a local speciality.

Things to do from a farmhouse in Emilia Romagna, Italy

There is a staggering amount of recreation in Emilia Romagna, with almost every outdoor activity thriving somewhere in the region. The sandy beaches of the east coast draw European visitors to Emilia Romagna villas by the thousand every year, as there are many miles of powdery soft, sand beaches with incredible value for money being offered in the small resorts which line the coast. The king of Emilia Romagna’s seaside resorts, Rimini also boasts some magnificent places for evening entertainment too.

The flat, fertile plain of central Emilia Romagna was once the bread basket of the Roman Empire, and the Emilia Romagna country houses and farmhouses are extremely popular places for people to stay and enjoy the charm and tranquillity of an Emilia Romagna country holiday. Farm accommodation here is a hideaway of indulgence, as there is nowhere in Italy where food is held in such high regard, and there are frequent feasts and dances to enjoy.

Emilia Romagna country holidays are ideal for nature lovers and outdoor activity enthusiasts. There are an impressive range of bird sanctuaries, nature reserves and trails (for both walking and riding) throughout the countryside and along the coast to be investigated from an Emilia Romagna country house or farmhouse. Many of these tracks will take you to some of the finest monasteries, abbeys and ancient convents in Italy, which are well worth discovering from a country villa in Emilia Romagna.

Throughout the year, Emilia Romagna is the host for a huge range of festivals and fiestas. Nowhere in Italy do people celebrate and dance with as much passion as they do in Emilia Romagna. Country apartments and self catering farmhouses in Emilia Romagna do become booked up relatively early for the summer months as people return to the region to join in the festivities and feasting!

Places to holiday in Emilia Romagna, Italy

Bologna is the capital of Emilia Romagna. The red coloured city centre remains much as it was in the Renaissance, and the tourist crowds tend to stay transfixed on Florence or Venice, meaning that you can still derive some peace and relaxation from staying in Emilia Romagna accommodation in Bologna. Offering the finest cuisine in Italy and a range of stunning buildings and cultural attractions, Bologna is a well kept secret treasure of Italy.

The fortified town of Ferrara is also regularly missed off the well worn tourist trails of northern Italy, which merely adds to the town’s undeniable charm. Offering an enormous wealth of historical and artistic masterpieces, natural surroundings and glorious beaches, it is hard to imagine why the villas of Emilia Romagna which surround Ferrara are not fully booked all year round!

Modena, the ‘capital of engines’, so named due to the location of many of Italy’s finest motor factories being located here, is a wonderfully cultured city, with a magnificent medieval centre, dominated by the huge 12th Century Cathedral.

Weather in Emilia Romagna, Italy

In July and August, temperatures average 32°C, but peak temperatures during the day are higher, meaning it can be very hot if you take an Emilia Romagna country house during these months. Many people visit during spring or autumn when temperatures are less, but still warm.

Travel to Emilia Romagna, Italy

No matter where you decide to take farm accommodation in Emilia Romagna, there is an airport in close striking distance. Bologna (BLQ), Modena (ZMO) and Rimini (RMI) all have airports which receive flights direct from the UK, and there are a large range of providers supplying flights from a range of British airports.

We had a small problem with the shower drain which she fixed straightaway. The apartment was warm, comfortable and well equipped. And the location is excellent - lots of great places to eat on the same street.

Caroline and Stephen are extremely generous and friendly hosts, who are happy to give you plenty of tips for your stay - and some homemade culinary creations courtesy of Caroline's fabulous work with the fruits of the local land. (We think her limoncello outshines the version served at the local restaurants). She and Stephen are equally happy to let you do your own thing and enjoy a very comfortable place to stay. The apartment has everything you need, including breathtaking views of the appenine hills, with no sign of industry, or indeed anything other than rural beauty in every direction. Local towns and villages are all worth exploring - as are local bars, cafes and very reasonable trattorias. Further afield are the more urban delights of cities such as Modena and Bologna. Either way you'll get used to some windy roads: our advice is look at the scenery, wind down a window and stop regularly for coffee or gelato - and any car sickness is easily avoided. All-in-all a holiday to be whole-heartedly recommended - and that's before you consider the solar-heated swimming pool which, in late October, we only imagined rather than enjoyed.

The flat is very clean comfortable all mod cons, spacious and luxurious. Full of light and tranquil as it looks out onto a lovely garden with a 200 year old plane tree, and lots of birds, you can visit and sit in the garden. The flat couldn't be more central, just a few steps from the Duomo and castle. There is a supermarket across the road and the amazing Slurp pizzeria next door - best pizza I've ever had anywhere! Don't miss the Palazzo Schifanoia with it's amazing fresco of the months - a real gem. If you like Greek vases you can't miss the archeological museum, world class collection.
