Make a holiday rental farmhouse of country house in Emilia Romagna, Italy your home away from home

Emilia Romagna is one of the 20 regions of Italy, stretching from the Adriatic Sea to the Apennines. The region is highly rural, with beautiful Emilia Romagna country houses adorning the gently undulating countryside of the huge plain which reaches from the coast to the foothills of the Apennines. Emilia Romagna is famous for its cuisine, especially cheese and Brodetto, a local speciality.

Things to do from a farmhouse in Emilia Romagna, Italy

There is a staggering amount of recreation in Emilia Romagna, with almost every outdoor activity thriving somewhere in the region. The sandy beaches of the east coast draw European visitors to Emilia Romagna villas by the thousand every year, as there are many miles of powdery soft, sand beaches with incredible value for money being offered in the small resorts which line the coast. The king of Emilia Romagna’s seaside resorts, Rimini also boasts some magnificent places for evening entertainment too.

The flat, fertile plain of central Emilia Romagna was once the bread basket of the Roman Empire, and the Emilia Romagna country houses and farmhouses are extremely popular places for people to stay and enjoy the charm and tranquillity of an Emilia Romagna country holiday. Farm accommodation here is a hideaway of indulgence, as there is nowhere in Italy where food is held in such high regard, and there are frequent feasts and dances to enjoy.

Emilia Romagna country holidays are ideal for nature lovers and outdoor activity enthusiasts. There are an impressive range of bird sanctuaries, nature reserves and trails (for both walking and riding) throughout the countryside and along the coast to be investigated from an Emilia Romagna country house or farmhouse. Many of these tracks will take you to some of the finest monasteries, abbeys and ancient convents in Italy, which are well worth discovering from a country villa in Emilia Romagna.

Throughout the year, Emilia Romagna is the host for a huge range of festivals and fiestas. Nowhere in Italy do people celebrate and dance with as much passion as they do in Emilia Romagna. Country apartments and self catering farmhouses in Emilia Romagna do become booked up relatively early for the summer months as people return to the region to join in the festivities and feasting!

Places to holiday in Emilia Romagna, Italy

Bologna is the capital of Emilia Romagna. The red coloured city centre remains much as it was in the Renaissance, and the tourist crowds tend to stay transfixed on Florence or Venice, meaning that you can still derive some peace and relaxation from staying in Emilia Romagna accommodation in Bologna. Offering the finest cuisine in Italy and a range of stunning buildings and cultural attractions, Bologna is a well kept secret treasure of Italy.

The fortified town of Ferrara is also regularly missed off the well worn tourist trails of northern Italy, which merely adds to the town’s undeniable charm. Offering an enormous wealth of historical and artistic masterpieces, natural surroundings and glorious beaches, it is hard to imagine why the villas of Emilia Romagna which surround Ferrara are not fully booked all year round!

Modena, the ‘capital of engines’, so named due to the location of many of Italy’s finest motor factories being located here, is a wonderfully cultured city, with a magnificent medieval centre, dominated by the huge 12th Century Cathedral.

Weather in Emilia Romagna, Italy

In July and August, temperatures average 32°C, but peak temperatures during the day are higher, meaning it can be very hot if you take an Emilia Romagna country house during these months. Many people visit during spring or autumn when temperatures are less, but still warm.

Travel to Emilia Romagna, Italy

No matter where you decide to take farm accommodation in Emilia Romagna, there is an airport in close striking distance. Bologna (BLQ), Modena (ZMO) and Rimini (RMI) all have airports which receive flights direct from the UK, and there are a large range of providers supplying flights from a range of British airports.

Busy Bologna

5 of 5
Francesco and Elena were most welcoming and took time and trouble to point out the sights and give us advice. The accommodation is really just one big room with a kitchen partition off and an internal bathroom. The bathroom was pretty basic, but there was hot water and everything worked. It is about a kilometre from the centre of Bologna, but there are a lot of buses. Francesco pointed out that there were a lot of restaurants in the parallel street and we found one which we really liked. At night you have a choice - either shut the windows and the shutters and shut out the light and the noise, or have fresh air with the windows open. This sounds a bit negative, but we really enjoyed our stay and liked our hosts very much.

A Great Stay

5 of 5
Our host, Marina, could not have been more helpful and welcoming. The location was quiet yet within a few minutes walk of all the sites. The property was lovely with all the facilities we needed including excellent air conditioning and was beautifully, furnished/decorated in an authentic style for what was an original old building in the centre of Bologna. We felt secure and comfortable and would return and happily recommend to anyone who wants a proper Italian experience.
