Bologna countryside accommodation with pool

Hello! We are traveling with our four year old son in late September to Emilia Romagna. We want to visit Bologna plus Ravenna, Parma and the countryside.

We are looking for a nice 2 BR place to stay with a swimming pool that would be within 30 minutes drive to Bologna or near a major train line (though we will have a car).

I have scoured VRBO, TripAdvisor, and Agriturismo sites and came up with one possibility in Castello di Serravalle. It looks great but I'm a little concerned that it might be too remote.

I welcome any suggestions -- thank you!

Brisighella is a funtastic destination, much closer to the A14, has places for all the pockets and you could leave the car at the station plus travelling by train.

We went there at the end of Sept 2011 and the weather was still very warm.

In late September usually small outdoor pools are closed, don't base your search on that.

Try these 2 places: they are both near Dozza a very nice village in Imola's hills.

Brisighella is nice but I think it take 1 hour to reach bologna from there

Italians don't heat their pools like we do in the US. They are also a people adapted to the heat and chilliness that doesn't bother those of us from a more northern clime often sends them shivering. On Capri in mid May the only people going in the pool were Americans fron the frigid regions and Scandavians. We got a discount at the beach resort becasue of that. It is entirely likely that by late Sept, the pool at any of these places could be drained for the winter
