Rio Rosso

Villa Rio Rosso is an original stone residence on two floors, located within the Garden of the Palazzo di Varignana, dotted with centuries-old oaks.

The villa is accessed through the enchanting garden of fragrances and is immersed in the greenery, creating a magical atmosphere.

Surrounded on all sides by the green hills of Bologna, the residence offers glimpses of historical places of particular value such as the famous pre-Romanesque crypt of the Church of San Lorenzo and the Malvezzi Tower dating back to 1078, both located in the village of Varignana.

Guests can enjoy absolute privacy and all comforts including a reserved parking lot inside the courtyard.

Villa Rio Rosso has four elegant bedrooms with traditional wooden and terracotta ceilings and thick stone walls that ensure silence and give guests a cozy feeling.

Two bedrooms have a private living room and one of them has also a splendidly furnished terrace that overlooks the woods towards the ancient hamlet of Varignana.

On the ground floor, guests have access to a large living room with a kitchen where they can enjoy convivial moments.

The classic furnishings and the wainscot of the Villa are skilfully manufactured by Italian wood craftsmen and combined with unique pieces of Italian antiques, carefully selected, such as the wrought iron and gilded headboards, the chests, and the ornaments in general.

The large arbor facing south-west allows guests to enjoy the villa also outdoors, all the year round.

In the summer, guests have access to a large solarium facing the orchard.

This area accommodates a small heated circular swimming pool with hydro jets and delightful nocturnal lighting effects.


The villa can be booked with two different formulas. The first includes a daily breakfast at the resort and a three-hours entrance to the traditional Varsana SPA path.
Alternatively, guests can choose to experience absolute privacy with the "Villa Only" formula.
