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 of the Carne national park. A short 10 to 15 minute walk will quickly have you in the middle of a protected woodland teeming with wildlife.
The scenery around the agriturissmo is absolutely beautiful, the garden area around the pool is immaculately maintained and provides spectacular views of the Monte Rontana and surrounding chalk hills.
All the bedrooms (which are air conditioned) are located on the first floor of the building and all have great views of the surrounding landscape. The bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms are spotless and are cleaned every day. The breakfast is amazing (easily the best that we have encountered in our many years staying in agriturissmos all around Italy) with a wide range of fruits, cheeses, meats, and cakes available. After the breakfast, there is nothing better than to relax by the pool for an hour or so to digest it all.
Finally, what really makes the Varnello so special is the warm welcome that you receive from the owner Giovanni and his wife. They really go out of their way to make sure that your stay here is an enjoyable one.
The Varnello has provided us with the perfect start to our Italian holidays. Grazie mille.
