The accommodation

Wonderful agritourism in direct synergy with the winefarm “Podere Riosto”, wines from the Hills of Bologna. It is composed of the premises "Casalino”, “Torre” and “Carvulla”, in former times called “A Riosto”, during 1200 in possession of the progenitors of the renowned Lodovico Ariosto.

The agritourism is an oasis of relax, situated 350 m above sea level in middle of the Riosto Hills and vineyards in an untouched ambiance, only a few kilometres away from Bologna direction Florence (Futa Pass).A place with an interesting historical background: from the prehistoric Pliocene era with fossil relics of whales and manatees, to the Late Middle Ages of the feudal peers Ariosti, and the Gothic Line during the Second World War. Today it is an ideal place of peace and recreation.

In the “Villa Casalino” we organize winetastings and guided tours through the wine cellar and the vineyards. If the weather is good, we can do those in our big garden or under the porch. In the locality “Torre” we organise: Winetastings with snacks of local products in the newly built welcoming hall suited for weddings, graduation ceremonies, conferences and meetings; guided Tours through the winecellar; explanations regarding the local wine production.

In the locality “Carvulla” we welcome our over night guests: 7 tastefully renovated mini appartments are at your disposal on the spectacular estate of 70 hectares, in possession of the Franceschini Galletti family.

Time for holiday, weekend, business trip or special events: all this in the surroundings of Bologna in an unique location. Our team welcomes people with enthusiasm and is ready to allow you an unforgettable stay.

    "Quiet and peaceful but don't expect the internet"

    11/15/2018

    Recently stayed there three days while attending trade show in Bologna, a refreshing change from the hustle and bustle of the city during the time of the EIMA agricultural show. Everything was fine except their WIFI didn't work and cell phone service was very limited, which was a problem for me since I was here on business. Staff blamed it on some storms that came though the area the previous week, while that sounded plausible I had the same problem staying here the last time I was in town for the show which made it doubt what I was told. Bottom Line: If you want peace and quiet in a surrounding of beautiful vineyards and mountains then stay here. If you need to stay connected with the rest of the world at the same time though then I would suggest you stay somewhere else

    11/15/2018

    On the night of our arrival there was a storm while we sat comfortably by the blazing fireplace. The holiday home was very well in shape, we were perfectly cared for and the tranquillity, combined with the location and the view of the vineyard makes the stay unforgettable.
