Stunning views, amazing guest house in the heart of wine country. We wanted a couple days to relax and this property was absolutely perfect. The view from our windows is an picture perfect postcard and the amazing restaurant next door (Mario e Manicomi) was unforgettable. Great pool, excellent service and free bikes to use. There is also an incredible Nordic... More

In 2003 and 2004 we visited Varnello for a couple of days with our young kids. The relais was then more or less just started by Liane and her husband Giovani. Again in the region we decided to visit Varnello again. Liane and Giovani handed over their relais in the meantime to their son Vincenzo. It was one sentimental journey... More

Beautiful room, location was excellent and breakfast one of the best we have experienced in Italy - also having such a good restaurant in walking distance from the country house makes it just perfect.

Relais Varnello has it all: a nice country house with large and comfortable rooms. When you open your window you look upon the magnificent hills and woods of this part of Emilia Romagna. The B&B is run by friendly owner Vincenzo with the guidance of signora Germana, a woman who obviousy has seen both the good as well as the... More

This was our first visit to the area. Varnello sits a couple of miles outside the little town of Brisighella on a ridge of hills formed by thick gypsum deposits. The B&B was an excellent place to stay to see the area. The owner and staff very helpful and friendly, the building, garden and swimming pool all beautifully maintained. Our... More

We stayed five nights at this clean, simple guest house where the charming Madam was helpful and endearing. The place is set in unimaginably beautiful countryside in the Parc Vena Gesso with long well-signed walks through fields and woods. Our room was plain and unpretentious, almost monastic, with a great view. Simplicity beats pretension or bad taste any day. Breakfast... More

We have been coming here every year for the last 5 years, we usually kick off our Italian holidays with a short stay at this beautiful agriturissmo, given its proximity to Bologna airport (~45 mins by car). We cannot recommend the Varnello highly enough. It is located a few kilometers from the small medieval town of Brisighella at the edge... More

We were touring the Emilia Romangna region and wanted to visit a rural, historic area and decided to stop at Brisighella. We stayed at Relais Varnello, www.varnello.it and what a great find it was. The B&B is a bit out of the town on a spacious spread which was probably once a vineyard. There is a lovely, well kept swimming... More
