We have just returned from the most wonderful two weeks in Italy we could have hoped for. Travelling with two active boys (11 and almost 13), we were looking for a base from which we could both explore the historic cities and enjoy sporting activities and the countryside. We were not disappointed. The location, whilst beautifully hidden away on the... More

Ca Gioiosa is in the most peaceful location and from the minute we arrived we felt at home. Fiona and Andrew are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble. We didn't want to leave as staying there took us away from the hectic day to day life and gave us the opportunity to enjoy the uninterrupted company of our... More

Well where to start? We have been very lucky over recent years to have stayed at some superb locations and accommodation in Italy and Ca Giacosa is easily amongst the best. It provides a calm and tranquil setting that has both spectacular views and fantastic weather. It is extremely well appointed and very comfortable clean and spacious. It was a... More

Myself, my husband and our 4 girs (13 to 7 years) stayed for 3 weeks end of July 2013. Ca Gioiosa lived up to all the reviews and a whole lot more. Both Fiona and Andrew were the most charming hosts and were our unpaid holiday advisors, without them we wouldn't have experienced as much as we did, including a... More

I returned to Ca Gioiosa this past May for another wonderful week-long visit. Before returning for a second visit, I wondered if my memories of my last visit were becoming over-inflated but I was so happy to see that in fact all the things I love about staying there are still so true. As with my last stay, the rooms... More

We spent two weeks staying at Ca Gioiosa, a quiet getaway in the hills of Monteveglio, just 30 minutes from Bologna city and 15 mins from most of the high end Italian car factories including Ferrari, Lamborghini and Ducati. Our host, Fiona, was incredibly helpful about what to see and how to make the best of our time in the... More

We spent three months traveling around Europe and were fortunate to save the best for last at Ca Gioiosa. The house is fabulous and has everything you could want with many attractions within easy reach. Great if you like cars or motorbikes with so many factories within an hour - eg. Ducati and Ferrari to name but two. Peaceful location... More

This was our 6th visit to Ca Gioiosa, and are still discovering new places to visit. Especially now the Freccia Rossa from Bologna makes major cities like Rome accessible in roughly 2 hours. The house is very clean and well equipped. Fiona and family are welcoming and with their local knowledge they can suggest,even the best place for an espresso.... More

We are finally back home and settled in after a month and a half of traveling. Around the end of September we stayed at Cà Gioiosa, for a week, with friends. How lucky can you get to find a place like this ! The house was perfect, very clean and comfortable in a secluded area but still close to everything.... More

I needn't repeat all the positive comments about Fiona. She is extremely knowledgable and couldn't be more helpful. She and Andrew are outgoing and very pleasant company. The house is well-designed with three en suite bedrooms and a small kitchen and living area. Since we stayed later in the season than most guests we weren't able to use the outdoor... More
