Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
San Benedetto Val di Sambro, Province of Bologna, Emilia-Romagna
La Casa Terracotta is our beautiful 100-year-old, newly-renovated 3-story Italian home. It is 10 mins from the A1 motorway, but set in the mountains, at the very end of a quiet village lane, with stunning views west, south and east to the Appennine mountains. The views, plus its location, facilities and luxury hot tub make it a great place to holiday, whether you simply want to chill out or explore lots of Italy.

Staying here you can experience real Italian village life. Live like a local, eating out much of the time (3 course lunches for 12 euros!) chatting at the village shop when you buy your morning bread, gathering round the table on the top terrace for al fresco dinners.
And yet you are perfectly placed to explore. All the attractions of Emilia-Romagna, Tuscany and the Veneto are between 15 mins and 2 hours drive - from Bologna...

About the neighbourhood
Our village is surrounded by mountains and other small villages, most of which have good restaurants and bars. There is a a Spar in the village, a good value Ecu supermarket 5 minutes away in one direction, and a large Coop 10 mins in the other. The next village to us has a fantastic restaurant which is open every day except Mondays. Ripoli and and RioVeggio are both about 10 mins away and both have great value bars and pizzerias frequented by locals. There are hypermarkets and shopping malls 25 mins away by car.
Getting around
You will need a car! We have walked to the villages around us, Montorio is about 25 mins on foot, but the roads are steep. It is also possible to walk to Ripoli train station, which takes around 40 mins on foot and from there you can catch direct trains to Bologna and Prato.
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Bologna: 38.0 km
Railway: San Benedetto Ripoli: 2.5 km
You can fly to Bologna Marconi airport and hire a car - we usually use Firefly but there are plenty of hire car companies. It takes around 30 minutes from the airport to the house (We will send you instructions when you have fully paid for your booking.)
Florence airport is just under an hour away to the south, Pisa 1.5 hours to the west and we have even flown into Venice and driven from there which takes about two hours.

We quite often drive from the UK - the cheapest and quickest way is via Switzerland - it is 13 hours door to door from Calais to our house and, subject to San Gottardo tunnel moving okay , a straightforward and mostly very beautiful drive.
Activities nearby
