The villa is an ancient complex dating to the 13th century and fully restored, today it is a prestigious relais.
The property is completed by roughly one hectare of grounds surrounding the villa, and three additional structures: a stables and two open-barns used as storage facilities and dating to the XX century.  The ancient main villa and the stables are not subject to historic-architectonic restrictions.
Inside the villa begins with the ground floor opening into an extremely large entrance which leads to a beautiful living room and the large kitchen.  We also fin an elegant sitting room used for reading and a graceful breakfast-lunch room.
The main staircase connects the floors in addition to the service staircase and a lift.  Moving upstairs the sleeping area is composed of seven bedrooms on the first floor all of which are large and well finished with their own well sized and equipped bathrooms.  On the second floor we find three further bedrooms, all with bathrooms.  In addition on this floor a lovely suite has been created roughly 45m2 in size, as well as a prestigious billiards room.
The bedrooms are furnished elegantly and have all creature comforts, private bathroom, colour TV and air conditioning.  Their value is demonstrated by the fact that in 2010 the film Consonanza imperfetta was shot here, featuring Julian Grass and Laura Polato
Admiring the rooms in the villa you immediately notice the care which has gone into them, the walls enriched by subtle colours which are at the same time warm and engaging. The bedrooms play on a tonality which ignites the senses.  Particularly original is the choice to vary style between the rooms, creating almost made to measure environments for every type of guest.  Everybody appreciates the variety, whether in search of the old or the new, the warm tones of wood and traditional furniture or fresher more modern settings.

The complex is 30km from the Bolognesi hills and only 15km from Modena.  Inhabited since prehistoric times, the ruins from ancient bronze age and early iron age culture have been found.  The presence of Gallic communities is almost a certainty whilst occupation by the Romans is well documented.
Only in the Byzantine period did the area return to development.  It was however the Longobards who set about designing and constructing the old nucleus of the city.  Successively the municipality passed under the control of Bologna and despite the big wars which devastated Italy in this period, large swathes of the territory were reclaimed and became liveable and also cultivated.
Modena was for many centuries the capital of the Dukedom of Este until it was annexed to the Italian Kingdom.  It is an ancient home to the university and Archbishop. From 1947 the city is also home to the army’s Military Academy of the Carabinieri. 
Amongst its many treasures the Cathedral is particularly well known, as is the Civica Tower (Ghirlandina) and the Piazza Grande (Large Square), all declared world heritage sites by Unesco.  
The city is one of Europe’s most important economic centres. Numerous important companies specialising in foodstuffs have their headquarters here, including the centre of production for the famous Parmigiano Reggiano (Parmesan) as well as engineering firms.  Modena is in fact the world centre for sporting cars whith Ferrari based at Maranello and Maserati in the city itself.
