Profile

This enchanting Villa, another of our classical country villas, stands on a bluff overlooking the Lutirano Valley in the Tuscan countryside. Every room has spectacular views across the valley of lakes, woods and farm fields. There is also a typical country-style pizza oven to enjoy summer cooking parties as well as a swimming pool that has 360° views over the valley.

This property as the other houses of this big estate straddles Tuscany and Emilia Romagna and is an excellent base for visiting the east of Italy; Ravenna with its wonderful Byzantine mosaics or Rimini where one of Alberti's more formal architectural projects, the Tempio Malatestiano, still stands. The Adriatic coast is about an hour away and Faenza, with its rich tradition of ceramics, is within half an hours drive. Bologna, Ancona or Rimini are better airports to fly to than Pisa or Florence though the latter can easily be reached by driving across the mountains to Marradi and taking the train. The Tosco-romagnolo Apennines are a beautiful area in their own right, with hidden villages, delicious restaurants and a wonderful feeling of discovery, as few people visit this area. Cycling, climbing and walking are well catered for, with some mountain passes climbing up to 1000 metres, between 1600 metre high mountains. Emilia Romagna is the region of good cooking: Tortellini, Parma ham, Parmesan cheese, Bolognese ragu', ravioli are all from this area. Tredozio itself, the small town at the foot of the hill, boasts a Michelin starred restaurant whose chef will come and cook for you. Tredozio also hosts concerts during the summer ranging from Jazz to Chamber music, and has tennis courts, shops and restaurants.

Interior

Interior Description

The house is on 2 floors, built into the side of a hill, so one enters from the upper floor, into the dining room; to the right is a well-equipped kitchen, while on the left is a comfortable living room with a working fireplace. In the far corner of the living room a door leads to a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom. A circular staircase in the dining room leads downstairs where there are a further 2 bedrooms, one with ensuite bathroom, Both these lower bedrooms also have French windows leading out onto the garden, making the house feel delightfully airy in the summer.

Heating   Usage will be metered throughout your stay and you will be charged accordingly. Charges must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked to make a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.

 

Water and Electricity    Please note that most of the properties in our portfolio are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.

 

Internet Connection   Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
