Lodole Country House is without any doubt one of the most charming and historical B&Bs in Bologna. The house, in fact, is a lovingly restored, 17C country cottage with warm, cosy rooms, a spacious lounge with an open fireplace, raftered ceilings, original stone walls and floor and all the charm of traditional hospitality. Beautifully located on high ground inside the boundaries of the Molino del Pero Golf Club, the house is approximately 25 Km from Bologna, 70 Km from Florence, and just 10 km from the Rioveggio exit on the A1 motorway.
A few years ago Alice and Daniele fell in love with this place and bought what was at the time little more than a ruin. They then renovated and transformed it into an informal yet exclusive Country House with a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere and a friendly welcome offering top quality service. In line with the splendid tradition of real country holidays (“agriturismo”) in Emilia Romagna and Tuscany, the Lodole Country House is private, comfortable, very special and right next to all the Molino del Pero Golf Club facilities.

“Lodole Country House was the warmest and most beautiful accomodation I have ever experienced – ever. It’s where heaven meets earth. The breakfast was food for the soul, the decor is impeccable, the keeper of this b&b is kind and wonderful, and the setting is where God Himself smiles…
It’s not exactly a complaint, but in my experience, we travelled here for the first time at night and it was a little difficult to find. Finding it, however, made up for all the frustration of not finding it at first.”
“Beautifully peaceful location. The owner Alice’s breakfast is a real adventure with fresh cakes every day.
A shame they don’t do dinner as well as restaurants are not very close to hand and you need a car to get to them.”
“Very comfortable and a super large breakfast.”
“Beautiful area! A very pretty and charming B&B.
I would have liked a more modern design… That however is a personal opinion.”
“A large, beautifully renovated country house with a great view and a pool in a wonderful position. The owner is very friendly and makes sure you have a perfect stay.”
“Excellent position and a charming house. Very peaceful.”
“The hotel was fantastic, the landlady was so helpful and polite. The house was in a gorgeous country style and went great with the absolutely staggering surroundings!
The hotel was a little hard to find. Could do with some signs on the road.”
“Delightful owner – made us very welcome – breakfast was amazing – good quality toiletries – rooms very comfortable with good size bathrooms.”
“Peace, privacy and a polite and friendly owner, Alice. A superb breakfast with the special bonus of Alice’s homemade cakes. Everything impeccably clean. We’ll be back soon…”
“Great care has been taken over every detail in this beautiful house with its cosy, friendly atmosphere! Alice, the owner, surprises you every morning with the exquisite fragrance of her homemade cakes and the breakfast is sensational by Italian standards. The hotel is only about 14 km from the motorway exit and in practically no time at all you are sitting peacefully in the middle of the countryside beside a swimming pool offering marvellous views in all directions. On our way to Umbria we stopped off for 2 days here, time to enjoy a little relaxation and an excellent dinner at the nearby Golf Club.”
