Nestled in the dipping hills enveloping Emilia-Romagna’s capital city Bologna, in northern-central Italy, Villa Claterna belongs to a stunning cluster of properties located in a prestigious, elegant estate. The complex features an 18th-century villa, lovingly restored with its original charm as well as crumbling vineyards, orchards and botanical landscape designed by architect Antonio Perazzi.

The fantastic position makes Villa Claterna superb for exploring some of the region’s most popular cities as well as the sunny Adriatic coastline, while allowing guests to enjoy cutting-edge facilities within the estate.

The luxury villa has been finished to the highest standards inside and out, set to resemble a charming old farmhouse with wooden floors, terracotta tiles and exposed roofs. On the ground floor, there’s a modern kitchen connected to a dining room decorated with chandeliers, wallpapers, patterned curtains and classical paintings.

Each of the six bedrooms has its own character and boasts an en-suite bathroom. The villa’s garden-facing windows offer cinematic views over the estate’s swooningly romantic terrain, set to bring a sense of tranquillity to the mind and soul.

Step outside and relax in the shaded pergola while looking out at the Anfiteatro della Vigna below, full of pastoral pathways that look like they’ve been painted into the sea of green. This is arguably the best place to watch the lingering orange-slice sunset settle behind the hills with an aperitif that matches its warm hues. As the day begins to melt into the night, retreat to your private infinity pool with a heated tub to reach the complete state of zen.

The expansive estate hosts four restaurants serving traditional Italian fare, as well as a private spa offering relaxing massages, treatments, saunas and Turkish baths alongside heated outdoor pools. Sports enthusiasts can exercise in the modern gym, practice their swing at the training golf course or play tennis, squash and basketball.

The closest village has delightful restaurants, bars and a supermarket for your convenience. When it’s time to explore, the region is well-known for its thermal baths, ancient cities and rich gastronomy, with the capital city of Bologna being only a 30-minute drive away. Walk around its sprawling plaza lined with arched colonnades, mediaeval and Renaissance buildings such as the towering Basilica di San Petronio and the famed leaning towers Asinelli and Garisenda.

Luckily, the villa’s superior position makes it easy to plan trips to cities such as Florence, Pisa and even Venice, or spend the day soaking up the sunshine on the Adriatic Coast – Marina di Ravenna, Cesenatico and Rimini are all approximately an hour’s drive away.

The closest city Bologna houses a cool Museo della Storia which will encourage the entire family to learn more about its history in a fun and interactive way, while car lovers will likely want to visit one of the many local car factories, most of which have family-friendly museums and adrenaline-rushing experiences.
