Discover this spectacular resort nestled in the hills of Bologna

Imagine an ancient castle surrounded by beautiful gardens in the lush, placid rolling hills of Bologna covered with silvery olive trees and rows of vineyards. We are talking about Palazzo Varignana, a historic and magnificent resort with timeless charm. The heart of this place is the castle: the eighteenth-century Palazzo Bentivoglio with its four traditional towers, the loggia, frescoes, vaulted and brocade ceilings. And all around, country houses and farmhouses forming a charming small village where tradition and modernity coexist.

The 150 bright rooms and suites of the palace feature both natural materials and precious man-made elements, and it is the same in the six luxury villas, real oases of peace where you can relax among swimming pools and private parks.

At Palazzo Varignana, you will also discover the most authentic and genuine flavours of this land. It has more than 150 hectares of olive groves, the largest in Emilia-Romagna and neatly arranged rows of vineyards whose fruits are processed in the semi-underground cellar of 1,100 square metres. Owned by the Agrivar farm of Palazzo di Varignana, the enchanting Country House Oliveto Sul Lago is the ideal choice for those who want to treat themselves to a relaxing stay surrounded with charming hills.

The products of the farm are offered in all the three restaurants of the resort, each with its own specialities: Il Grifone offers fine dining cuisine, the Aurevo makes special use of the extraordinary extra-virgin olive oil of Palazzo Varignana, and Le Marzoline is a typical restaurant where you can try the most traditional dishes. Starting from the beginning of 2023, there will be the possibility to ride the Royal Train housed in an authentic vintage carriage dating back to 1921. It is a prototype of the royal train that after having been dismissed for dozens of years is running again, evoking the luxurious atmosphere of the iconic 1920s.

Finally, Palazzo Varignana is also a renowned wellness centre, thanks to its magnificent Varsana spa, where you can relax and restore your body-mind balance through professional treatments, dives in the pool (7 outdoor ones) whirlpool baths, saunas, Turkish bath, sensory showers and wellness treatments to pamper yourself perhaps in the Ars vivendi private spa.

Enjoy a spectacular experience.
