The agriturismo

The organic farm Bio Nonno is located in the heart of the Po Valley in the middle between the provinces of Modena, Bologna and Ferrara.

The accommodation

If you are on a business-trip or on holidays, you will be pleasantly surprised by our familiar atmosphere and will enjoy the park and the countryside away from the chaos of the cities.

In restructuring the housing we wanted to preserve the spaces as they were: our rooms are therefore spacious and pleasantly lit by windows overlooking the park.
There are three apartments, each of which consists of two rooms and a bathroom, equipped with kitchen, heating and air conditioning.

Activities and surrounding

In collaboration with @rtèria (association of tourist guides in the territory of Cento), you can visit the historic sites of Cento and the surrounding territory, spending a couple of days relaxing in the countryside.
The timetable will be made according to the needs of the group. If there are children, we also have a detailed map of all the playgrounds in the area.

Some examples of possible tours:  
- Cento: his most famous historical characters and most beautiful buildings. Walk through the centre, visit of the Rocca and the piazza with the palace of the Governor in the footsteps of the Grands from Guercino till today.
- Visit to the famous Wood of Pamphylia and discovery of the agricultural Partecipanza (a form of shared agricultural property) with its almost millennial tradition
- Towards Pieve di Cento by bike with stop and the museum of flax, the museum of violin-making and other suggestive sites in the village.
- Trip to the five castles and fortified houses in the surrounding territory
- Other special guided tours can be arranged according to the needs and the interests of the groups.

    "Nice and relaxing holiday with children"


    We spent a nice and relaxing two-and-a-half week vacation at Il Bio Nonno's with our two daughters (2 years / 8 months). They mostly grow organic pears there, so it's more like a plantation than a typical farm. Still, there are two donkeys, some goats, and lots of chickens and ducks. Our older daughter insisted we did visit the stables every day! So She enjoyed the little playground on the estate, Which was very handy on days when we did not have any trips planned. The host, Gaetano, is very friendly and speaks good English. He does not live on the farm, but some kilometers off That was no problem, though. He comes Usually by the farm once a day for a few hours, and We could always reach him via cellphone. So He gave us some great tips for where to go in the area. (One personal highlight of our stay was a visit to a place Where They produce the original Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena.) The apartments are all in one building did Seems to be a converted farmhouse. Everything was clean and comfortable; The owners CLEARLY put thought and love into details. And When there what we needed anything (search as a cheese grater or a bathtub for our children), what Gaetano happy to help us out. The farm is situated in a nice rural area. Still, it's only ten minutes by car to the nearest village, Cento. It features a huge supermarket and a very nice historic city center, complete with great ice cream parlors. Interesting cities like Bologna, Modena, and Ferrara are less than an hour away, Which makes the farm the perfect starting point for day trips. We had a great time at Il Bio Nonno and can honestly recommend it to anybody looking for relaxation!
