The Emilia-Romagna region

Emilia Romagna is Italy's finest culinary region, home of balsamic vinegar, parmesan cheese and parma ham with Bologna, its capital, voted the place Italians would most love to live, this is truly La Dolce Vita, with art, culture, tradition, museums, palazzos, piazzas, churches, towers and superb shopping.

This area is renowned for its fantastic wine and beautiful architecture. Carmignano, less than 30 mins from the house, is known for wines that marry Sangiovese and Cabernet grapes (as well as local olive oil and grappa) and wine tasting is available in lots of local vineyards. Because of the area's superb culinary traditions, there are a profusion of food festivals (sagre) all year round, ranging from chestnut sagre to the famous white truffle sagre. In the summer local sagre in near-by villages include polenta, wild boar, venison and ravioli.

In our local town of Vergato there is also plenty of choice - with restaurants offering the famous truffles and tartuffo mushrooms, plus plenty of Florentine dishes too. We have a wonderful local restaurant just 200 metres from the entrance to our villa. Just perfect for when no one wants to drive.

"Great Holiday with family and friends"

Booked the villa for a 2 week holiday with 3 generations of family. The villa was perfect with 5 spacious bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and 2 kitchens and sitting rooms. Plus loads of outside space too. All made super easy for everyone to enjoy their stay. We enjoyed a wide choice of local restaurants at reasonable prices, plus day trips to Florence and Bologna too. Most of time it was difficult to leave the relaxing environment of the villa and grounds. One thing to note is that the kitchen is the best I have ever found in a holiday rental fully equipped for all types of cooking from taigine, fish kettle and large weber BBQ. This made it super easy to shop locally at the food markets and cook in. I hope to return again for another stay soon!

So pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back again in the future. Sandra
