Borgo Bazziganta in the Colli Bolognesi area about 30min from Bologna. Lucia & Peter offer, in their restored farmhouse, one 2BD luxury room and bathroom with amazing views; if required an extra adjacent 2BD room. We are travelled European citizens; speaking 5 languages; offering insights of the area; Italy; Europe & the world. We love to cook for guests for an additional fee. Our area is known for nature, truffles, mushrooms, wines, MTB, trekking, fast engines, art cities and much, much more.
Borgo Bazziganta was a big 17th century farm. We rebuilt part of it in 2015 as a comfortable country home on 1.5 hectares of land. We fell in love with its amazing 360° views; the peace and quiet; the deer grazing in the fields next to the house; the fresh eggs, salads and figs from our neighbor farmer and; the opportunity to share this magical location with friends and guests. We combine our Airbnb offer with Social Eating events and other emerging forms of the Sharing Economy. Bear with us that our garden is still a work in progress.
Guests have free access to our large living; entry hall and; kitchen with dining table; the 1,5 hectares of land and terraces around the house, each with lovely views of sunrise, sunset, Appennines, Po Valley and occasionally the Alps. The semi-private guest area is on the first floor and consists of a luxury 2BD with it's own bathroom, both with amazing views. Whenever required we offer an additional adjacent 2BD room.

I'm Lucia, Italian Retired Export Manager, I run (and live at) Borgo Bazziganta with my Dutch-Swiss Knowledge Management consultant husband, Peter. After both of us enjoyed a globetrotting life, we decided to rebuild an old farm (Borgo) on the beautiful Colli Bolognesi, hills south of Bologna, and make the site a small paradise on earth for us to enjoy and share with friends and guests. The garden still needs some work as the builders only recently left but we are diligently toiling at it to make it a pleasant and inspiring space to spend time in. Lucia hiking, foraging and cooking to everybody's delight, Peter cycling off and on road, being a great computer wizard and handyman and making fabulous espressos & cappuccinos. Our 3 British Shorthair cats, Dino, Titti & Wallis help entertain... We love Bohemian luxury, wine always in crystal glasses but often in a picnic hamper out on our land where views are most spectacular. Happiness can be in small things a Murano Chandelier over the big curvy designer bathtub, a lit fireplace in the living room with a good book from our extensive multilingual library, silver and heirloom porcelain... and good jazz or classic music. Both my husband Peter & I always had the pleasure of meeting new people and building bridges among different cultures, deriving from this great rewards including making us fluent in 5-plus languages. Hosting in this beautiful corner of Italy will ensure we stay in touch with the world, while remaining active in Dutch, Swiss, Slow Food and Transition networks in and around lovely Bologna.
