Villa and Estate
Our 5000 sq ft villa has multiple living rooms, 5 master bedrooms, yoga studio, outdoor pool, pergola with seating and dining. Enveloped by the magical quiet of the Bolognese hills, the villa shares an 800 acre estate with Palazzo Varignana resort and geothermal spa. The heart of the Resort is Palazzo Bentivoglio, a country castle with four traditional towers dating back to 1705, renovated respecting the charm of its history. The main historic building is surrounded by a contemporary village built in stone. Around the complex extend 600 acres of olive groves, vineyards, gardens, streams, labyrinths, and paths.
Our guests at the villa have access to all the grounds, the resort and the geothermal spa baths.
