4 bedroom Farmhouse in Mazabotto, Bologna, Italy – RPPIER37918


Property ID

446 m2








Beautiful detached villa located in the lush Apennines hills close to Bologna.

The villa is located in a stunning valley that shields it from any noise, giving it a perfect location to unwind. There is a small lake that is just underneath the home which further contributes to the magical countryside atmosphere.

The villa is carefully positioned to receive the sun’s warmth for practically the entire day. The valley is also opened on the north side, allowing cool summer breezes to keep the villa cool even on the hottest days.

The Villa is located at the end of a private road that only serves four other private properties, preventing any traffic from passing by the property. This also provides more protection because anyone driving along the street is always quite visible to the neighbours, which is one of the reasons the entire neighbourhood hasn’t seen a break-in in the past 40 years. A dirt road also begins from the main gate of the Villa and connects to various pathways throughout the entire forest, allowing for long walks or mountain bike rides. The 18,000 mq land has a wide range of potential uses, including farming, winery, recreational activities, and animal care and breeding.

Thanks to its three storeys, two separate entrances with dedicated parking, and private
grounds that are fenced around, and separated electrical systems, the Villa fits one or more families and can also be conveniently used as Bed & Breakfast.
