This was a wonderful experience in the countryside south of Bologna. Mauro's agroturismo consists of a few appartments, each with their own outside place with table and chairs, etc. There were also some farm animals, a nice swimming pool, big green areas, as well as great oppportunities for exploring nature as well as cultural areas nearby (Bologna and Florence are less than an hour away). Mauro and the other people at the farm are service minded, and the pizza evening together with all the guests was a very nice experience. Family friendly place (we were there with three kids from 5 to 15) (just beware the somewhat steep stairs inside the appartment, and the limited size of the living room), and the kids loved the pool, the trampoline and the animals. Recommended.
We had a wonderful stay with our 3 young children at Mauro's beautifully restored guest house. Close to Bologna and Firenze for excursions but in a very peaceful environment. We thoroughly enjoyed Mauro's hospitality!
Had such a great time relaxing at Mauro's place. It was definitely an atmosphere of tranquility and peace but had fun things to do like swimming and pizza night! Perfect for our team retreat. :) Would definitely recommend for a nice, quiet countryside vacation!
Excellent accueil par un hôte bienveillant. La maison est bien aménagée pour une famille ou un groupe d'amis. La piscine parfaite. Le sauna bienvenu. Et les environs d'une beauté (printanière) (website hidden) di Sole est un très bon plan...
We had one of the most incredible vacations ever at Mauro's beautiful agriturismo. It was a perfect get-away and a visit we will not soon forget. First, the location is stunning. The apartment is perched on a hill overlooking the Italian countryside. It is centrally located and within an hour of major cities and tourist sites but also within minutes of breathtaking views and charming villages. There are many hiking trails that lead out from the house and into a forest with a bubbling stream, the ruins of old farm houses and even a mill where one can find the old tenants tools and equipment. The house is a perfectly cozy and quaint converted farm house that still has the old wooden beams, stairs and bricks but also many modern conveniences that make the house a delightful place to stay. The town of San Benedetto is a charming town (and we were fortunate enough to be able to visit their Truffle Festival which was loads of fun). Finally, Mauro is a lovely host who was generous in countless ways. We had everything we could possible need for our family (including 3 young children) and would happily recommend Mauro and his agriturismo to anyone interested in experiencing Italy in a remarkable way.
Mauro and his wife were the perfect hosts. My family, including 3 kids, absolutely loved the farm stay. We wish we could have stayed longer. Loved the cooking lessons and eating the pizza and pasta. Loved the whole atmosphere. Looking forward to staying there again one day!
Thank you Mauro for an amazing time! We had a lot of fun at your place and enjoyed our trip. And your pizza was fantastic.
Til the next time... ;-)
