About Mauro Mariotti

Self-employed child neuropsychiatrist

Mauro Mariotti purchased this chateau / country house in 2006

Why Mauro Mariotti chose Modena

Since I am not living here, I only use the house in spring and autumn. In summer, I stay in other regions. I am glad that the house is used by young families. It is suitable for children and teenagers, but it is also a really quite place for couples. The rent is partially used for covering park expenses and maintenance. This place is ideal for couples with children or teenagers, as there is plenty of possibilities for relaxing and playing outdoors. The house has a professional swimming pool. It is recommendable to pay a visit to the nearby art cities, where you can enjoy the excellent culinary specialities.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Here, one really appreciates the value of life in nature’s small things, for example when walking through the alleyway under the nut trees, when smelling the roses, or when you seeing hares and pheasants running across the garden.

Wonderful spacious and convenient charming house

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults, 2 older children) spend two very nice weeks in this quiet rural surrounding near to the most interesting mediaeval renaissance cities Modena, Carpi, Bologna, Ferrara, Parma and several others. The large pool is a must during hot summer days, the house is spacious and equipped with everything, Dr Mariotti was a perfect host. Over all a perfect place to stay on holidays Thanks to Mauro

Owner's Response: Grazie! This summer was a little bit hot, the hottest summer of the last hundred years! But the swimming pool helped a lot! Una coppia molto simpatica con figli divertenti!

"A lovely and very pleasa...

  • 5 of 5

"A lovely and very pleasant stay. The house suited all our purposes, and the swimming pool was much appreciated during the hot days. The location is very good, as Modena, Parma and other places are within short distance.

Would wholeheartedly recommend this accommodation to families with children. The owner was always reachable by phone; the gardener was available for practical help around the house."

We (2 small families) just had a nice and relaxing vacation in this lovely house with great rooms, equipment, large pool and garden. Very friendly and accomodating owner. Would really recommend the house for families with children, and we'll hopefully come back another year!

We are a Belgian family who stayed for 2 weeks in July 2015 z

in this superb house with an excellent, large swimming pool! We were VERY happy in this house with wondeful big, well maintained garden! The owner wants his guests to enjoy their stay in every possible way: swimming pool is cleaned twice a week, he is very helpful with tips for restaurants and sightseeing, etc. The house was perfectly clean. We would fully recommend this house and even like to come again! Thank you Mauro!

superbes vacances

  • 5 of 5

Une maison au mobilier modeste mais avec tout ce qu'il faut. Un piano à l'intérieur...

Point fort de cette location, la piscine ! extra large, extra longue... 2 entrées pour y accéder (échelle, escalier). Exposée plein sud, elle est ensoleillée dès le matin. Une terrasse couverte y fait face (je vous conseille d'y prendre vos petits déjeuners).

Eclairage nocturne au top pour baignade la nuit....

Un petit chalet regorge de jeux gonflables, table de ping-pong...

Le propriétaire, un homme charmant qui se décarcasse pour les désirs et besoins de ses locataires, sans pour autant être envahissant. Un terrain immense, fruitier et la possibilité de se servir ! Avec son allée boisée qui fait plusieurs centaines de mètres (comme sur la photo), on se croirait une star qui se protègerait des paparazzis ! Tout est parfait, un jardinier qui entretient impeccablement arbre et pelouse, la piscine nettoyée 2 fois par semaine et même du personnel pour changer vos draps !!!

Calme et tranquillité pour des vacances sans soucis, reposantes et vraiment destressantes, dans un cadre verdoyant pour amoureux de la nature. (mais n'oubliez pas vos bombes anti-moustiques !)

OUI vraiment mes enfants et moi recommandons cette location.

Owner's Response: Merci bien a la famille Francaise très gentille et punctual. Mais le mobilier c'est pas modest....il y a beacoup d'antiquariate et il n'y a rien que vien du grand magasin....les lits sont pieces uniques, les matrasses parfait et toujour rennouvellè, les peintures sont autentiques (1700)....la television (2012) de 50 pouces avec beaucoup de programme international. Le wifi free etcetera...la cuisine vien d'un de plus important restaurant de modena. Le table de la cuisine est modest mais il viens de ma gran mere....et pour moi est mon coeur....merci bien pour votre très bonne recension. Mauro

superbes vacances

  • 5 of 5

Une maison avec un mobilier modeste mais avec tout ce qu'il faut à l'intérieur (linge de maison, piano, TV...) et tout ce qu'il faut à l'extérieur (superbe piscine extra large, extra longue !... avec 2 entrées : échelle, escalier !!!), table de ping pong, jeux gonflable....

Un terrain immense, arbres fruitiers avec la permission de se servir... Comme sur la photo, une allée boisée très longue qui mène à la maison, comme les stars !!

Et enfin, un propriétaire charmant, qui se couperai en deux pour satisfaire le moindre des désirs et besoins de ses locataires, sans pour autant être envahissant.

Des services dignes d'un hôtel ! : jardinier, nettoyage piscine, et même changement de vos draps !

Bref, des vacances reposantes, destressantes, dans le calme et la nature qui vous entoure, mais n'oubliez pas vos bombes à moustiques !

La piscine point fort de cette location, est exposée plein sud. Au soleil dès le matin, avec une terrasse couverte (je vous conseille d'y prendre votre petit déjeuner) et aussi de tester la baignade nocturne. Grands moments de plaisir et de fou rire avec mes enfants (éclairage nocturne au top).

Cela fait 18 ans que nous louons des maisons avec piscine et celle-ci est dans notre top 5 ! alors oui !!! nous la recommandons vivement
