Beautiful property, wonderful hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Borgo degli Ulivi. Alessandro and Angela were so helpful and kind. We had many wonderful experiences that would not have been possible without their connections! The food in this area is sensational and our kind hosts directed us to the best local restaurants. The view from the pool is sublime

We hope to return one day.

A Country Setting in the Heart of Emilia Romagna Near Bologna

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a wonderful week at Borgo degli Ulivi in Crespellano, only minutes from Bologna, in early June. Due to mobility issues, our hosts, Alessandro and Angela, set us up in the ground floor garden apartment adjacent to their home. The 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment is fully furnished and tastefully decorated with full kitchen, dining and separate living room. It also has its own private outdoor patio where we had breakfast every morning. It has a beautiful pool where you can spend warm summer afternoons keeping cool when not exploring. There are so many places to visit in Emilia Romagna, and Crespellano makes a perfect starting point for any direction you choose to go. Even though it is small, there are many good choices for nearby dining. There are also several markets and shops to fill all of your food needs. Alessandro and Angela know all about the surrounding area and can recommend many wonderful places to go for day trips and enjoying the area and food specialties of Emilia Romagna, including prosciutto, parma ham, balsamic vinegar, Parmesan cheese, cherries, tortellini and much much more. If you are into fast cars, the Ferrari and Lamborghini factories and museums are also close by. When considering staying in Bologna on your next Italian trip, think about staying at Borgo degli Ulivi, instead. It is located in a very quiet and beautiful setting in the countryside, but close to everything, and Alessandro and his wife Angela are the perfect hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and so will you.

Superb base to visit Bologna, Monteveglio, Emilia

  • 5 of 5

The place consists of 2 apartments with access to an independent part of the garden , barbecue and an really big outdoor pool (++). The view from the garden and the pool is outstanding. The hilly landscape of Monteveglio area with old villas, vineyards and fields. Rooms are vast and well equipped. Even in the hottest days (40 degrees) the temperature inside, with a little help of portable aircon was OK.

The hosts are very nice and helpful. Following their hints reg restaurants and places worth visitting one can find a lot of joy.

Only the WiFi connection does not cover the whole plot so be prepared

Bel endroit bien situé et confortable

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons été chaleureusement accueillis par Alessandro et Angela et avons passé d'agréables et reposantes vacances dans leur gîte fonctionnel et confortable. Le Wi-Fi offre un débit raisonnable mais est parfois un peu capricieux. Les 2 gîtes proposés (4 et 7 personnes) sont intelligemment

disposés pour que chaque famille préserve son intimité. Nous avons disposé d'une place de parking propre et protégée par un portail automatique, très rassurant. Pas de corvée de ménage en partant, c'est appréciable. Prévenir les propriétaires lorsque l'on souhaite laver le linge, car les machines se trouvent dans leur sous-sol privé. La grande piscine à débordement est superbe, bien aménagée et équipée d'accessoires et jeux pour bien s'amuser, et il y a un cabinet de toilettes extérieur ! La vue est très jolie, sans vis-à-vis. L'emplacement est idéal pour visiter Bologne, Modena, Ravenna, Ferrare et les petits villages voisins, l'accès est rapide en voiture.

Owner's Response: Angela et moi sommes très heureux que vous soyez bien aux Borgo degli Ulivi . Nous sommes désolés pour les problèmes liés à la connexion Internet, mais pendant l'orage, une foudre arrête la ligne téléphonique et nous avons dû attendre l'intervention télécom pour la réinitialisation.

une oasis de calme

  • 5 of 5

Un vrai bonheur que de rester une (trop courte) semaine dans ce superbe endroit. Idéalement située au coeur de l'Emilie Romagne, cette belle propriété est un excellent point de départ pour des escapades culturelles, gastronomiques ou sportives. Accueil chaleureux d'Alessandro et son épouse, vastes espaces de vie, avec tout le confort requis, une vue sublime que ce soit de la fenêtre du living ou du bord de la piscine. Nous aurions volontiers prolongé...

Très belle demeure avec une superbe vue!

  • 5 of 5

Alessandro et Angela,

Merci pour votre accueil et votre gentillesse,

Nous avons été conquis par votre très jolie demeure et sa superbe vue , un très beau paysage.

Crespellano est l'endroit idéal afin de découvrir votre très belle région qui est méconnue alors qu'elle n'a rien à envier à la Toscane ou la Vénétie. Bologne, modène, Ravenna, Ferrarra, Comacchio, Rimini etc, Nous avons adoré.

Merci également pour vos divers conseils et votre attention durant notre séjour.


Patricia et Philippe.
