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.

Loved It

  • 5 of 5

My Wife 2 teenage children and I stayed in this beautiful country villa for almost 2 months (April & May). We absolutely loved it. This is a lovely part of Italy and to enjoy it in the country side in Ganaceto was just great.

When we arrived it was still quite cool but the heating kept us nice and warm. Bye the time we left it was getting quite hot but the pool and the air conditioning kept us nice and cool. The very adequate kitchen stopped us from eating out as much with a huge supermarket just up the road to keep us stocked up.

There was so much to do. We got hold of some bikes and road all over the country side. We swam, played table tennis and lazed around in the big gardens that were so full of spring flowers.

The villa is situated in a perfect place. Close enough to places like Carpi and Modena to be able to get whatever you want and enjoy the Italian experience but still nice and quite in the country.

Our host Mauro was extremely helpful. Just a phone call away and there to please. Thanks Mauro

Excellent spacious villa with great pool!

  • 4 of 5

Came here for my sister's wedding in nearby Carpi. There was 4 adults, 1x 5 year old and 1 x 8 month old staying. This was a beautiful older style villa with pretty much everything we needed. The kids absolutely loved the pool and the inflatables and spent most of our week in and around the pool having great fun! Air conditioning in the bedrooms was a relief at night as it was over 30c every day!

Nearest supermarket was 5min drive and nearest towns about 15mins. In a lovely rural location so a hire car was essential. The only downside was the mosquitos and flys but the kids didn't get bitten once so looks like their repellent bands worked!

Would happily recommend to anyone.

Thank you to Mauro for making us welcome and hope to visit again one day.

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

"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 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!
