Rolling hills as far as the eye can see, alfresco meals under a pergola, walks to a quaint village, wine tasting at nearby vineyards – enjoy the many charms of the Italian countryside at this restored hilltop farmhouse. Set amidst a private garden with a pool, the farmhouse is an ideal place from which to explore the regions of Emilia Romagna and northern Tuscany.

An outdoor shower with hot/cold water is located next to the pool area. Close to the house there is a small building that houses an additional dining area with a table.
