The current owners refurbished this 19th-century stone manor house as a luxury home but had a change of plan in the early noughties and turned it into a “teaching farm”, B+B and restaurant in which all products used are produced at the farm. The main house has four en-suite bedrooms and the restaurant below it overlooks a valley and two rivers. The 15 acres of grounds include outhouses, orchards, vegetable garden and vines. It is 45 minutes from Bologna and near the village of Cerredolo.
