Overlooking rows of olive trees to one side and vineyards set to the other, Hamamelis belongs to the verdant territory of a luxury private estate, nestled in northern Italy’s rolling countryside. Known for its flourishing landscape and central position, the Bolognese backwaters are ideal for those seeking a peaceful retreat surrounded by nature.

Spread across three floors, the enchanting residence has been lovingly restored with classic features made by Italian artisans such as floor-to-ceiling curtains, leather headboards and watercolour paintings, exuding old-world charm. Upstairs, five chic bedrooms all featuring an en-suite bathroom are patiently waiting for your arrival. Each benefiting from a picturesque view over the green backdrop, they’re equipped with a small desk to allow for privacy when you need to catch up on work emails.

In the top-floor studio, you can practice your downward-facing dog or reach the state of zen during a meditation class. The kids playroom is also located on this level, and is equipped with a comfortable sofa and PlayStation to allow for hours of uninterrupted entertainment. While the children play in their den, curl up in one of the chaise lounges with a good book and relax while gazing out onto the hills of the surrounding commune.

Luckily, the outdoor area is just as magnificent - with so many corners and south-facing areas, you’re really spoiled for choice here when it comes to soaking up the Italian sunshine. Surrounded by a manicured garden and magical views of the valley below, the infinity pool lights up in a kaleidoscope of colours at night, creating an illuminated bathing experience you’re set to love.

All you need to enjoy the estate’s superb facilities is to make your way to the main villa which is home to four restaurants, specialty spa with outdoor pools as well as a modern gym and outdoor courts.

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. Revel in the unique fusion of diverse goals under a unified scientific approach, making your time at the villa an exquisite journey of indulgence and transformation.

Enveloped by other pastoral villages, the area turns out some of Italy’s most highly prized wines, as well as local delicacies. Eat your way through hearty plates of pasta alongside meat and cheese in Bologna’s many trattorias and delis – only 30 minutes’ drive away, it has a sprawling plaza and many Renaissance buildings worth admiring.

Hamamelis’ convenient yet harmonious location means that every type of traveller can find their own niche in the sprawling region – whether it’s getting lost in nature, wining and dining in charming towns or catching ample sunrays by the sea.

The resort where the property is tucked away in benefits from a restored 18th-century villa that boasts a private spa and four restaurants, meaning you don’t even need to lift a finger to unwind in luxury. Take advantage of the estate’s first-class facilities and let the hospitable staff help you organise a mountain bike tour through the neighbouring vineyards, olive groves and orchards. Alternatively, the private park’s many wellness trails are best for getting your steps in.

For more restaurants and local amenities, head to the closest village, easily reached by car in just 5 minutes. The immediate area is famous for thermal baths and springs, with the wellness oasis Castel San Pietro Terme being located only a 10-minute drive away. The city is full of centuries-old churches, cobbled alleyways and cafés that help you to embrace a slower pace of life. Its world-renowned spa facility uses water from the healing Fegatella Spring and offers specialised treatments and services for those looking for hours of pampering. Just over 20 minutes’ drive away, the open-air museum Dozza belongs to one of the most beautiful mediaeval villages in Italy and boasts an ancient Sforza fortress alongside colourful murals.

For true hustle and bustle, drive to the region’s capital Bologna, only 30 minutes away. Home to one of the oldest universities in the western world, it houses many museums, galleries and notable buildings such as its two leaning towers and the 38 kilometres-long porticoes that are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The east coast looking out to the aquamarine Adriatic Sea is studded with glorious swathes of pale-gold sand, where sorbet-coloured parasols stand neatly in lines like soldiers. Grab a sun lounger at the Singita Miracle Beach in Marina di Ravenna – the blanket-dotted beach is a popular spot for watching the sun slip behind the horizon or head to Rimini for a thriving nightlife scene and more beach clubs.

The swooningly romantic Venice can be reached in two hours by car, and so does Tuscany’s capital city Florence. Both amorous in their own way, they’re noted for their Renaissance architecture, monuments and beautiful historic centres belonging to UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Region

Emilia-Romagna, a captivating region in northern Italy, offers a splendid blend of culture, history, and culinary delights. Known as the "Food Valley" of Italy, this picturesque region is a haven for foodies, art enthusiasts, and history buffs alike. With its charming cities, stunning architecture, and a multitude of attractions, Emilia-Romagna is a must-visit destination.

Food lovers will find their paradise in Emilia-Romagna. The region is famous for Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, Prosciutto di Parma, and traditional balsamic vinegar. You can take guided tours to local producers, where you will get to learn about the production process and, of course, taste these delectable products.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Whether you’re travelling with fidgety preschoolers or cheeky teenagers, the Italian region is full of activities for children of all ages.

The immediate area is perfect for exploring tiny villages and cycling through expansive vineyards. Alternatively, organise a foraging tour before settling down in the grass with a homemade picnic.

Bursting at its seams with museums, galleries and historical monuments worth exploring, the capital city of the Emilia-Romagna region, Bologna, is a great option for a family day out. To learn more about the city’s early days, visit the Museo Civico Archeologico housing an ancient Egypt collection alongside Etruscan artefacts or Museo della Storia – an interactive museum dedicated to the history, culture and transformations of Bologna. Tech-savvy teenagers will love putting on the VR set at the La Macchina del Tempo museum and travel back to mediaeval times with a three-dimensional tour.

The Adriatic coastline is a sunny paradise popular among families with children and beach-loving enthusiasts alike. Both Marina di Ravenna and Cesenatico benefit from a flat sandy beach filled with parasols, sun loungers and playgrounds, while Rimini is well known for its many amusement and water parks. Notably Fiabilandia is known as the Italian version of Disneyland, while Italy in Miniature is a funfair with over 270 scale models of iconic buildings. For more splashing around, head to Parco Acquatico Atlantica Cesenatico, Mirabeach set within the famous Mirabilandia or Aquafan further along the coast.
