We spent a blissful week at Villa Martuzzi during the hot summer of 2018. The apartment felt wonderfully in-keeping with the area, and the shutters and thick walls of this very old building did indeed mean that the rooms stayed at a pleasant temperature while outside was hotter than we were comfortable with (32-34 Celsius).
We all loved the wonderful swimming pool, with our kids spending many many hours swimming and playing in and around the pool. The villa, and especially the pool are up high on the landscape, giving a wonderful feeling of space, and being surrounded by their vineyards it also gave a sense of being within the natural environments of the local countryside.
The Berti family were incredibly welcoming, and also gave us lots of advice on places to visit during our stay. We visited Modena (appx 40 mins away) and Bologna (appx 50 mins away) both beautiful historic cities, along with FICO Eately, and many of the sights and sounds of ‘supercar valley’. We visited both Ferrari museums, the Lamborghini museum and the Pagani factory (Mananello was wonderful, but the Pagani factory tour was the stand-out experience for my son and I).
Also nearby were Balsamic and Parmegiano producers who have practice their art over many generations, and roadside farmer's stalls serving the freshest, juiciest and most delicious produce imaginable.
The Villa was a perfect location for visiting all of these local attractions, while also itself being an utterly wonderful place to spend lots of time.
