About The Owner

I am an hoteliere, an hospitality management professional F.I.U. graduated in the USA. Generally I understand what people want from an Italian vacation. Il Palazzo, Rasiglio is your headquarters.

Why The Owner chose Sasso Marconi

This home is a family property; my father's uncle built it back in 1911; we keep it alive after 100 years!

What makes this villa unique

20 acres property to walk-through. People come here when invited only; that's why you will enjoy it. It will not be the anonymous hotel room.

Best Host EVER!~

  • 5 of 5

I honestly can say, I have never met a more attentive host then Mr. Carlo Bacchelli. A true old school world class gentleman who looked after all of our needs in every way, our trip unfortunately for him needed lots of his help and attention and in every way he exceeded our expectations. It started with a surprise greeting at the airport as we were traveling for a Trade Show and had 5 people on our team and he wanted to make sure we arrived without incident and was there in many ways to assist that were invaluable to us.

The property and house are fantastic. You truly feel like you are in a beautiful traditional Italian summer home in the mountains… because you are. If you want to have a truly unique and special stay… This is the place! Five Stars in every way. Enjoy!

Amazing get-a-way in Italy

  • 5 of 5

Rasiglio is a beautiful, large Italian home that is jam packed with hospitality and charm. It is located out in the country, approximately 40 minutes from Bologna. The property is large and beautiful. There are walking trails throughout, and much to see in the way of nature. The house itself is very large and well kept. The kitchen is user friendly, there is a laundry room, several bathrooms, and many bedrooms. There is a beautiful front lawn area with tables and chairs to sit and enjoy the quiet an beauty. The very best part of Rasiglio is Carlo and his family! Carlo the owner, Carla his mother, Christina his Aunt, and Alfredo, Christina's husband took such good care of our party of nine! They cooked amazing food for us, gave a wonderful pasta making demonstration, and made sure that we were well looked after. I have never felt so immersed in a culture and it's people. Carlo's communication prior to our trip was perfect and clear. He answered all questions and concerns. He is a perfect gentleman and host. We used our stay to explore the local area, enjoying small, local restaurants and touring the Marconi Museum with Carla helping us with the arrangements. Carla has extensive knowledge of Marconi and wireless history and was a complete delight! Bologna is a busy metropolis and well worth visiting. We highly recommend taking a terracotta tour! Amazing and beautiful history!

I highly recommend this property and hope someday to visit with Carlo and his family once again.

If you are an philosopher, romantic, Italophile, or home body, you will adore Villa "il Palazzo"!

  • 5 of 5

I have enjoyed the hospitality at il Palazzo for many years. I stay there annually during a business conference in Bologna, but I linger on for a week or so to enjoy the solitude and beauty of the place. I've been invited to cook with the family and it has transformed my own cooking. The proprietor is a consummate professional who has become a good friend and has bailed me out of numerous dilemmas that are typical of what Americans face if they spend any time in Italy. There is no place in the region, and I have explored it extensively for over 30 years, that I can more highly recommend.
