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.

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.

It is spacious, immaculately clean and very comfortable. Marta and Roberto have thought of everything to help their guests enjoy their visit to Bologna, from the well-equipped kitchen to the thoughtfully furnished (including books, games, cards and large TV) living-room. Our week there was a very happy one. The apartment, which is modern, with all of the amenities we'd hoped for, is located in the heart of the city and we were able to walk everywhere enjoying the typically great Italian architecture. On our first morning we discovered a great coffee bar, Nuovo Caffe' del Porto, round the corner, and it became our 'local' for the week. Equally close and absolutely fabulous was the restaurant, L'Arcimboldo, at Via Galleria, 34. On UK Mother's Day, while searching for another restaurant, that was closed, in the same street, L'Archimboldo was open. The charming owner squeezed us in in the hour available before the table was required for its reservation and we had one of the great (one-course) meals of our lives. When Roberto learned that our visit was being planned to see the mosaics at Ravenna, he provided lots of information about travel there and multi-tickets. We had an amazing day there and returned to the comforts of Casa di Marta grateful to have been able to experience such beauty. Thank you, Marta, Roberto and your family. You welcomed us warmly and made us feel at home immediately and we are delighted to add another glowing review.

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.
