What to do?

If you don’t know what to do in Bologna and the surrounding area, Lodole Country House will be happy to help you rediscover the joy of simple things: In addition to its fantastic open air swimming pool and solarium buried in the luscious greenery of the Bologna Apennines, guests can also enjoy golf at the Molino del Pero Golf Club , horseriding at nearby stables, mountain bike rides (with bikes provided by the Lodole Country House) and endless enchanting nature treks and trails.

There are also numerous places of interest to visit, like the old water mills in the Savena Valley, the Etruscan museums and archaeological sites at Monte Bibele and Marzabotto, and local farms in which to sample and purchase local produce. Bologna, Florence and Venice are also within easy reach, as well as other important centres of artistic heritage, such as Ferrara, Ravenna, Mantua, Verona, Siena, Pisa and Lucca.
