Ca Bianca is a perfect spot if you want to visit cities like Ravenna, Ferrara and -of course-Bologna but als like to enjoy peace and tranquility. A car is necessary. You can relax around the villa and within 15 minutes enjoy the vibrant citycenter of Bologna (parked).
The hosts are very kind and are genuinly interested to fulfil your needs. If they notice you like a special type of breakfast the next morning it's there. What hotel serves you a freshly baked home made cake in "heart"-shape? Even their dogs were very hospitable to our 2 small dogs who were allowed to stay. The interior decoration makes you feel at home, you notice the owners have good taste. One should be aware you are really guests of the family (they are living in the villa too), but we really liked it. We enjoyed the the space and uability of the self-catering appartment which enabled us to make some dinner when we did not want to go out at night. The room is cleaned every day (even the kitchen was meticulously cleaned). Free internet, no parking fees, very good price/quality. The 6 nights we stayed at Ca bianca were over before we noticed. Thanks!

Dear Andy,

many thanks for the kind words you had for us.
It has been a real pleasure meeting you and your nice dogs. Our Vittoria is missing them a lot and she kept going in front of your entrance for several days :-)

We spent 2 nights in this beautifully renovated home, done up in very stylish, magazine-worthy, gracious country style. The hosts are warm and accommodating, and made us feel welcome and comfortable. Located approx. 15 minute drive from central Bologna. The gorgeous property boasts a sweeping view of Bologna, and the views all around the property are lovely in every direction. Breakfast was served in the awesome kitchen, and was generous and delicious. We used taxis to get to and from Bologna, and I suggest you get written directions from the hosts to show your taxi driver how to get you back, since the suburban roads can be confusing. Wifi works perfectly. The family includes 4 delightful young boys, 3 adorable dogs, a handsome horse, doves plus chickens ( yes, the rooster crows in the early morning, adding to the country charm.). Ca' Bianca would be an amazing setting for a wedding, a special group gathering, or business retreat. There is also a separate 2 bedroom suite with a lovely main room and kitchen, which would serve well as a home base for exploring the Emilia Romagna region.

We spent a we in this romantic house located on a hill above Bologna. Simply a wonderfull place with a deep view of the city. All around you can see meek and docile Horses, gentle and well educated dogs... nice nice nice for animal and pets lovers.

I strongly suggest to live this experience with this hospitable family.

Grazie per le bellissime parole che avete avuto per Cà Bianca. Anche per noi fare la vostra conoscenza è stato un vero piacere e vedere i bambini giocare assieme e con gli animali ancora di più. In bocca al lupo per gli imminenti "progetti". Se doveste passare per Bologna, veniteci a trovare.

Buona giornata

My daughter and I loved the one night at Ca Bianca dell'Abbadessa. The B&B was recommended by one of our customers. We enjoyed the hospitality, the breakfast was perfect and the views, breathtaking. I am just sorry that we did not have more time to spend at Ca Bianca.

Recently I have been invited to a very warm and chic wedding at Ca Bianca Dell'Abbadessa.
I was amazed by the natural and chic atmosphere.
Everything was perfect, the weather, the food, the table set al fresco under an enormous white tent, the music.
We enjoyed our time so much, dancing till dark, the time was running without we realized it.
I can not imagine a better organization and set for a chic and detache' Wedding.
The bride and the groom arrived in an old charming chariot driven by an Irish horse wich is part of the Ca Bianca Farm. Children were crazy around!
From Ca Bianca you can see all Bologna town, the view is wonderful, you are in a very green set full of animals.
I strongly suggest.

All the accolades you read about Ca' Bianca are spot on. This was our second visit to Ca' Bianca and it was just as amazing as the first. Marco and his family always make us feel so welcome - from the charming apartment to the abundant breakfast, there is always so much attention to detail and quality. Loved it. Be sure to spend time outside to enjoy the views of Bologna, the horses and the afternoon breezes.

Room Tip: Apartment is spacious and is great for a family.
