“Absolutely Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

If you are looking for a gloriously peaceful place to relax, eat great food, and experience the farmland of Italy, this is your spot. We jogged through the groves, relaxed by the pool, and ate some of the most delicious food I am have ever experienced. Drive up to Modena and visit the restaurant made famous by Anthony Bourdain called The Osteria of Rubbiara and have the best meal of your life. You will have 75 year aged balsamic and tour the distillery. Drink grappa and nucino. Meet the owner and basically have the best day of your foodie life. The area is fantastic and this was the best place we could have possibly stayed. Trust me, we went to a few of the other spots to eat, Locanda Gli Ulivi is the best in the region.

Agriturismo's are generally a chintzy bunch but gli ulivi has a simpler and more tasteful approach. Comfortable beds, beautiful view, swimming pool and excellent restaurant. A great country getaway.

Only negative was the noisy kids in the next room - not the fault of the hotel - and once they left it was v peaceful.

During the roadtrip through tuscany we did a spontaneous stopover in this wonderful little bed & breakfast in Emilia Romagna for 4 days... the owner is very obliging! The appendant restaurant offers regional delicate food, which a very good value for money! A wonderful choice is the suite in direction to the pool, because the other rooms are a little bit clairaudient! But all rooms are very beautiful furnished in an autentic italian stil with an amazing view!

we chose to stay at this B&B outside of Bologna to avoid the traffic and congestion of the city. it is a small B&B overlooking a sweeping, beautiful view of a national park. the pool area has panoramic views of the park. my husband and i enjoyed spending the day by the pool, enjoying a good book and glass of vino. it is very quiet and we felt as if we had the whole place to ourselves. the rooms are spotless and the bathrooms are huge by european standards. there are many delicious, inexpensive restaurants within driving distance. although we did not try the restaurant on site (it got great TA reviews), it was always packed at both lunch and dinner.

My boyfriend and I stayed here in September. It was certainly a really great find! The rooms were perfect with gorgeous views over the valley and vineyards. The pool area was lovely and breakfast was great. We ate at the restaurant twice while staying there and the food was delicious! I would go back for the food alone. The farm also produces their own wine, which was so tasty - we had quite a few bottles during our stay! The place is run by family, which just adds to how special it is. A definite must!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper level with a view of the valley.

My husband had stayed in this hotel on business a few years ago and had remembered that the restaurant was very good. We chose to stay here for 1 night before our last night of the holiday in the city of Bologna, which is only a 30 minute drive away. Our room was in a separate building next to the pool which was beautifully decorated with a fabulous large comfortable bed. Very spacious with superb air conditioning and large powerful shower. The Pool area was lovely, so tranquil with gorgeous uninterrupted views of the countryside. Our evening meal was in the restaurant situated in the main building, there is also an outdoor seating area. The staff didn't speak much English apart from perhaps the hotel owner who was always on hand to help and recommend dishes and wines. The food was very good with recipes that had belonged to the family for generations. I had told the waitress I was a vegetarian but it transpired that one of the courses I had ordered was a dish with beef in it. They were quick to let me know this and suggested they make something else for me. The breakfast was the best we had during our Italian holiday, and you could also order cooked dishes which is rare in Italy. We thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stay and the superb food was an added bonus.

I had the good fortune to stay at this wonderful place for two nights with my wife and two friends.
The rooms were very modern and beautifully appointed---twenty steps and we were at the poolside. Enjoyed early morning swims. The views of the four hills were awesome. The owners were very helpful-they organised a tour of a local Parmesan cheese making farm--the whole process from cows to tasting free samples was very good. The two evening meals ticked all the boxes and the local wines of the surrounding hills --both red and white were lovely. You really need a car to visit all the local interesting attractions. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back in the Springtime.
