Via del Broaldo, 4, Ozzano dell'Emilia 40050 Ozzano dell'Emilia (Bologna)
The agriturismo is situated 18 km from the town centre, on the Ozzano hillsides, in a breezy, peaceful location. The nearby town offers all major services: post office, bank, market, bar, newsstand, chemist, beauty centre. And the farm itself is also home to an extremely modern dog centre for animal lovers.
The farm is situated in the province of Bologna, 110 metres above sea level, 18 km from the town centre. The surrounding land is very hilly and formed of the clay soil from the Pliocene period, which gave rise to the badlands formation.

The farm is made up of 87 hectares of land but only 40 hectares of this is suitable for cultivation. 20 hectares of the remaining land has been reforested with native downy oaks and oaks and 27 hectares are used for grazing. The farm breeds cattle, swine, sheep and farmyard animals; there is also a large vegetable garden (5000 m²) as well as cherry, apricot, plum and peach trees.
An application for organic certification has also been made since no chemicals or poisons have been used in cultivation and breeding for years.
The farm is home to the modern dog centre “Centro Cinofilo Felicia” that offers a dog hotel, selected breeding of Border Collies and Jack Russell terriers, dog agility, training and obedience. The agriturismo and the centre work together to organise internships, holidays with dogs and a number of services dedicated to man’s best friend.
