Warm, cosy rooms, a spacious lounge with an open fireplace, raftered ceilings, original stone walls and floor, the Lodole cottage has all the charm of tradition. Situated on a hill inside the boundaries of the Molino del Pero Golf Club (on the Savena valley road in the Monzuno Municipality, about 35 minutes from Bologna) the cottage overlooks one of the most beautiful valleys in the Tusco-Emilian Apennines.
A magical environment where you can live and breathe an atmosphere of bygone times and feel part of the family.
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 transformed it into an informal yet exclusive guesthouse with a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere and a friendly welcome offering top quality service. The Lodole Country House is private, comfortable and very special indeed, and of course right next to all the Molino del Pero Golf Club facilities.
Lodole Country House has 6 double bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. The rooms have been immaculately furnished in traditional style and great care has been taken over every detail. Each room has a different colour and décor, reflected in its name: Alba, Sole, Cielo, Stelle, Tramonto and Luna (Dawn, Sun, Sky, Star, Dusk and Moon). The lounge and the delightful portico complete the picture. The establishment is run with great enthusiasm and love by Alice who also prepares the extraordinary breakfasts!
There are numerous lunch and dinner options to choose from, including local specialities at the Golf Club restaurant or one of the many nearby restaurant or trattorias that offer special prices to Lodole guests.
Lodole Country House is also in a highly strategic geographical location and is certainly the ideal place for rediscovering simple pleasures such as chatting in front of an open fire, reading a book, going for a walk or a mountain bike ride, sampling local farm products, visiting museums, archaeological sites or old watermills, playing golf or one of the many other options on offer.
The alternative is to simply take things easy … far from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
Lodole Country House is dedicated to those who wish to enjoy something special in harmony with nature and to recharge both their body and mind.
