Ravenna, nestled between the rolling hills of Emilia Romagna and the Adriatic coast, city of mosaics, art and picturesque streets and monuments that tell stories of great emperors and monarchs. And it is in the hamlet of Castiglione that the ancient farmhouse is located, perfectly renovated, which fits impeccably into the surrounding nature just like the piece of a mosaic inside it.
Built with refined materials and often relevant to local culture, the villa in eclectic style, at the will of the owner, later became a luxury B&B, where guests can stay in one of the 7 rooms, each different from the other, each of which tells its history through the spaces, details, materials and furnishing elements chosen with meticulous attention, taste and wisdom which we also find in the common spaces – such as the living room and the two rooms of the restaurant, is constituted as a small Garden of Eden.
The horseshoe-shaped building embraces the large pergola, where during the summer the breakfast and subsequent meals are set up, thus offering guests the opportunity to enjoy the viewpoint, the swimming pool and the garden.
Eclectic style because every architectural and aesthetic detail has its own history and therefore its own origin and its own life. The walls certainly catch the eye as well as the ceilings with exposed beams, the tile floors, not to mention the ancient doors of old homes, the beautiful sinks sculpted in marble which are combined with river stone coverings and contemporary mosaics.
In total we therefore have 590 square meters spread over two floors, with pergolas and passages reminiscent of those of an ancient monastery set in a green garden and with over 50,000 square meters of agricultural land behind it.
Perfectly furnished, the villa also stands out for its details and internal finishes, which represent the right combination of contemporaneity and tradition. The plant engineering part has also been designed to use the structure in every season, the heating system partly underfloor and partly air, as well as the air conditioning guarantee the right temperatures and the 10 kW photovoltaic system with storage allows cost optimization.
The swimming pool area is very suitable and recalls the ancient Roman “Caldarium”, the main pool of the spa with its predominantly rectangular shape but with the arched entrance where the hydromassage is housed and the view of the surrounding fields, an open panorama of broad scope that leaves ample space for the imagination. The same refinement in both style and taste can be found in the SPA area where, hidden by trees to ensure maximum privacy, we find a concept of Spa made up of ancient barrels, a Jacuzzi and a Turkish bath. Let’s imagine coming out of the sauna, sitting down on the deckchairs and being welcomed by a good glass of Romagna Albana: what more could you want from life?
We find in the layout and composition of the spaces everything needed for the successful business that is the B&B, starting from the reception, passing through the restaurant area with its porticoed veranda to the professional kitchen, fully equipped, absolutely nothing is missing and with more of the unfinished space available on the first floor to possibly increase the tourist offer.
Let’s enjoy the peace and tranquility of the countryside, but still a countryside just a stone’s throw away from all services in a very high level context. Let’s remember that we are just a stone’s throw from Cesena, Rimini, Ravenna, the Adriatic coast and all the beauties that this land can offer. So there are no excuses, it is impossible not to fall in love with this villa which is in reality a real oasis immersed in the wheat fields and a flagship for local architecture. For your life, for your business.
