Located near the border between Emilia Romagna and Tuscany, Casa Caterina stands on a bluff overlooking the Lutirano valley. Casa Caterina is a classical country house a few kilometres (5 km) away from the village of Tredozio.  The village of Tredozio is wonderfully quiet, yet harbors a number of inviting restaurants, particularly the Mulino di San Michele (once an old mill). A ten-minute drive takes guests from Casa Caterina to the village center, which contains the conveniences of grocery shops, bakeries, bars and a bus station.

Check availability

Casa Caterina has been skillfully converted from an old farmhouse into a villa on two levels, with spectacular views from every room.  The swimming pool on site is 10x5 meters with depths 1.20-1.9 meters and pool towels are included.

The first level of the villa consists of an entrance with a dining area, a large living room with a fireplace and French windows with access to the garden, and a fully-equipped kitchen with an oven, dishwasher, microwave, fridge and freezer.  On this floor there is also a double bedroom with a bathroom and shower.

A spiral staircase leads to the second level. On this level there are two twin bedrooms (beds can be put together if desired). One of these bedrooms has an en suite bathroom with shower. There is also another bathroom with a bathtub. Both the bedrooms have access to the garden. There is a utility room with washing machine, and an outdoor pizza oven for making enchanting summer meals in the countryside. Satellite TV, DVD player, stereo with CD player and radio are provided. Cell phone is available.

The Area

Benefiting from a long history of prosperity, Emilia-Romagna is imbued with the spirit of fine living and boasts many exceptional Renaissance palaces and a particularly rich culinary heritage (lasagna, tortellini, Parmesan cheese and balsamic vinegar are just a few of many delicious regional innovations). A number of enjoyable excursions are easily undertaken from Casa Caterina.  Faenza, with its world-famous ceramics museum and production house, is about 30 km away, and the splendid medieval fortress at Brisighella, the focus of an annual medieval festival, is about 15 km away. A drive of 50 km toward the Adriatic brings guests to Ravenna, the location of the world's finest Byzantine mosaics outside of Istanbul, and from here it's just minutes to the beautiful resort towns of the coast.

The distinguished city of Bologna, 75 km northwest of Fantini, offers a delightful urban experience and, remarkably, the Tuscan capital of Florence is almost as close.

The villas of Torre FantiniCasa Eleonora and Casa Alta are very near Casa Caterina. Renting these properties together would work well for large groups and special events.
