Alessandro and Angela were delightful hosts, always ready to help out, make suggestions, sort out little problems. They invited us to share an aperitif with other guests, with delicious local specialities and wine, and Alessandro booked us into a wine-tasting evening at his nephew's place just down the road, another excellent evening.
The pool was just as wonderful as it looks, with the added fascination of bees doing backstroke! (Never felt at any risk from them, however.) This is a lovely place to relax with a book as well as an extremely good base to explore near and far. Crespellano has a regular railway service to Bologna, which in turn is a hub for most of Northen Italy, so you don't have to drive through unfamiliar cities when you decide to venture from Burgo de Ulive. It's very peaceful, even though the road runs nearby, as everything faces away from the road and towards a charming view. The apartment was clean and well-equipped, though a microwave or oven might have been useful. We had an excellent time and would like to thank our hosts for all their help.
We stayed here for 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The property is in a stunning setting, on the edge of town but there is a feeling of being out in the country. The amenities are comfortable, providing everything you would need for your stay. There are a lot of local restaurants that are of very high quality, and a supermarket within a 5 minute drive.
Benadetta and her mother could not have been more welcoming and were more than accommodating answering questions and suggesting ideas. They even booked a restaurant for our first night stay as we were arriving quite late!
Using this property as a base we visited many towns and cities in the area, from San Marino to Colorno, to Mantova, as well as Bolonga, Parma and of course Modena.
We would absolutly stay here again in a heart beat! Loved it!
