Set within the beautiful Emilia countryside is the prestigious 4* Palazzo di Varignana Resort & Spa. A restored eighteenth-century villa is at the heart of this luxury resort located outside of Bologna, the historical capital of the Emilia Romagna region of northern Italy.
A selection of rooms and suites are available at the property. Superior rooms enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding region while Deluxe rooms have spacious patios and balconies that overlook the stunning private grounds.
Located at the resort are the superb facilities at the Varsana Spa including sensory showers, a bio-sauna, Finish sauna, ice waterfall, sound bath, Kneipp circuit and steam bath. In the summer season there is a choice of five different sized swimming pools to experience as well as the outside fresh and salt water Crystal pool.
Italian and international cuisine is served at the three well-appointed restaurants on-site. Le Marzoline restaurant pays homage to the typical “trattoria” of the bolognese region, II Palazzo offers a gourmet fine dining experience and the Aurevo Pool restaurant is perfect for a relaxing poolside light lunch or dinner.
Less than 20 minutes away Le Fonti Golf Club is the closest to the resort. Set within the Sillaro Valley and its pleasantly mild micro-climate, this excellent course is surrounded by gently rolling hills. Slightly further afield is the charming Golf Club Bologna which has wonderful views of the surrounding landscape. Originally designed by the renowned Sir Henry Cotton and John Harris, the golf course was updated by Peter Alliss in 2000 and should not be missed on your next golf holiday to Northern Italy!
