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.
