Giardino Degli Aromi belongs to a cluster of five properties nestled in a far-stretching private estate of northern Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region. Featuring a magnificent setting, luxury facilities and close proximity to many ancient cities, it’s the perfect place to discover the best of Italian history and culture.

A magical walk through an aromatic botanical nirvana placed inside the estate’s vegetable garden full of fragrant citrus trees, centuries-old oaks and luscious bushes ends with a view of the rustic Giardino Degli Aromi. The characterful residence exudes a sense of serenity thanks to its original features such as wooden window shutters and iron juliet balconies, but wait until you step inside.

The interior carries the same sense of magic – it’s the terracotta ceilings, stone walls and classic wood panelling that create the ideal backdrop for unique Italian antiques and classic furnishings scattered across the living spaces and bedrooms. Equipped with king size beds and en-suite bathrooms, each of the four bedrooms has been tastefully finished with objects of careful research, while two bedrooms also have a small living area for further privacy.

Peaceful and quiet thanks to the idyllic surroundings, the outside area benefits from a south-west-facing arbour where guests can enjoy their morning coffee or afternoon aperitif before hitting the snooze button and relaxing on a blanket in the neatly manicured grass. As the sun sets, the hydromassage hot tub with calming lighting effects is all you need to unwind after a long day.

The estate’s facilities are only a few moments away, and include four restaurants serving traditional Italian fare, a private spa as well as cutting-edge gym and courts for keen sports enthusiasts.

Step into a realm of unparalleled of well-being with this retreat-in-villa experience. Immerse yourself in exclusive Health & Wellness Retreats, crafted around a transformative philosophy. Have a 3 to 7 night retreat, to enjoy a holistic journey to unlock your fullest psycho-physical potential.

In just 5 minutes by car, you can be strolling around the closest village which boasts local amenities and a couple of family-owned trattorias. Apart from being a culinary oasis, the region is also well known for its thermal baths, and the closest spa is located in the city of Castel San Pietro Terme, only a 10-minute drive away.

Alternatively, enjoy the hustle and bustle of Emilia-Romagna’s capital city Bologna, only a 30-minute drive away. Stroll around its ample plaza lined with arched colonnades and admire its Renaissance buildings before tucking into a generous plate of fresh egg pasta – a local delicacy.

Benefiting from a convenient location, Giardino Degli Aromi offers the optimal base for exploring Emilia-Romagna, as well as the surrounding landscape.

The property is nestled in a peaceful estate with a restored 18th-century villa, allowing guests to enjoy first-class facilities and sprawling nature all at once. Open the front door to immerse yourself in the pungent Hortus Conclusus botanical garden designed by famous Italian architect Antonio Perazzi, full of low walls, terraces, water fountains and blooming botanicals. On a sunny day, you can follow one of the walking trails available in the private park or rent bikes to scout the territory even faster.

For more restaurants and local amenities, head to the closest village, based only a 5-minute drive away. The area is full of picturesque spots and open plains, with the famous thermal city Castel San Pietro Terme being only 10 minutes’ drive away. Featuring a fantastic spa facility with healing water from the Fegatella Spring, it’s also home to many restaurants, wineries and cafés serving delicious local dishes and wine from neighbouring vineyards. Just over 20 minutes’ drive away, the mediaeval village of Dozza looks like an open-air museum and boasts an ancient Sforza fortress alongside artistic murals decorating the city.

The closest city of Bologna can be reached in 30 minutes, and is known for its two leaning mediaeval towers, as well as a plethora of museums, galleries and friendly eateries. Travel a bit further to discover more gastronomy in Modena, famous for its balsamic vinegar and home to one of the 50 best Michelin-star restaurants in the world.

Thanks to the sparkling Adriatic Sea being within close reach, escaping the summertime heat is easier than you think. Known for its seaside resorts such as Marina di Ravenna, Cesenatico and Rimini, it has all the things you could possibly dream of – think palm tree-lined promenades, never-ending strips of sand, seafood terrace bars and everything in between.

Exploring doesn’t end here though. The Tuscan gem Florence and world-renowned Venice can be both reached in two hours by car, and are full of breathtaking architecture, cobbled alleyways and romantic corners waiting to be discovered.

Directly south from Florence, you can find the city of Siena, boasting historic landmarks such as the breathtaking Duomo di Siena, popular square Piazza del Campo and Piccolomini Library filled with Pinturicchio frescoes.
