Our villa sleeps up to 10 and has a large swimming pool (12 x 6m). Situated between Florence and Bologna, the villa is surrounded by 93 acres (32 hectares) of unspoilt, peaceful woodland and farmland. Originally an old farmhouse, now restored, it provides spacious accommodation in an outstandingly beautiful and unspoilt part of Italy. Its position on a hillside has spectacular views of Bologna Apennine Hills.
The villa is finished to a very high standard while retaining its simplicity with terracotta tiled floors, volterama ceilings and chestnut ceiling beams, plus contemporary furniture creating light and airy spaces. It has a large kitchen, under-floor heating and well-appointed bathrooms with excellent showers. Many windows have integral insect screens. The converted barn hosts 2 bedrooms and is also fully equipped with kitchen and a well-appointed bathroom. Perfect for groups and families holidaying together. Meals can be enjoyed outside in delightful settings including two terraces and there are lots of quiet places to sit and read. The pool is surrounded by terracotta paving with a large terrace for sun bathing. Fotovoltaic panels generate up to 5 Kw of electricity.
Situated in the Bologna Apennines between Tuscany and Emilia Romagna, Casa Ruspiano is perfectly positioned for visits to Bologna, Florence, Pistoia, Lucca, Parma, Ravenna, Modena, Verona, Siena, Venice and Milan. Many great locations are 1 hour by fast train from Bologna or under 2 hours driving from the villa.
