Property description

Villa Melagrano is a recently fully restored, charming, rural Italian country villa using its original local natural stones, and features. The villa stands on top of 30 acres of its own private land, with two streams; surrounded by 360 degrees of valleys, meadows, mountains and forests with magnificent views of the local country side and distant “Borgos” (small villages) that dot the Appenine hillside, and light up at night like stars in the sky.
The villa is cool in the summer and warm in the winter can be reached by a very exclusive, totally private road and is off the beaten track. It has airy comfortable rooms, that will accommodate eight people easily, and four new bathrooms. The kitchen, living room/dinning room, den, and entire villa is fully equipped with all linen, towels, and amenities that you will need for your comfortable stay. There are two wood burning fireplaces in the villa, one large stone one in the den and a small cooking/heating one in the kitchen.

Additional Info : The Villa is situated in a strategic geographic location 50 minutes drive from Bologna, a magnificent medieval city that has an international airport, and Florence the world renowned city for rich artistic culture, is only 55 minutes away. The closest train station is located in the town of Vergato about an 8 minute drive down the hill from the villa. The spa town of Porretta Terme is 20 minutes drive. Not to forget the other towns of Ferrara, Modena, Ravenna, Parma, Mantua and Verona that are a few miles further. The famous coastal cities of Rimini on the Adriatic Sea and La Spezia on the Mediterranean sea are about 100 kilometers (1.5 hours) driving distance away, that is a nice day trip.
Famous regional Foods
The area is also very well known for its gastronomic delights: mushrooms, white truffles, Potatoes especially those from Tole, chestnuts, and world-famous cheeses like Parmigiano Reggiano produced in the local mountains.
