Oliveto sul Lago Country House

Oliveto sul Lago Country House

A picturesque driveway lined with cypress trees leads to this small Country House, nestled in the hills east of Bologna and immersed in nature. This former farmhouse, featuring breathtaking views of the olive groves, was destroyed in World War II and has now been meticulously renovated. Traditional charm meets modern elegance and comfort here.

About the rooms

The rooms are all different and cosily decorated with warm colours and with traditional elements such as antique furniture and wooden ceilings. They feature views of the garden or olive groves.

Our favourite room

The "Chapel" room is very unique because it is housed in the former chapel. It has a large window and a terrace with a panoramic view. For families we recommend the suite with a bedroom, a lounge with sofa bed and a terrace.

Enjoy a refreshing swim

The panoramic outdoor swimming pool is open from mid-May to the end of September. The spot to unwind on loungers with bath towels.

Work out and wind down

Relax in the wellness centre of the neighbouring Hotel Palazzo di Varignana, which is just 1 km away. You get a 10% discount on the use of the wellness centre and on massages and treatments. Go for a walk along the path through olive groves and vineyards starting from the hotel. Make sure to visit Bologna, home to one of the oldest universities in the world, or the town of Dozza, with its painted houses. Also worth visiting are Ravenna, famous for its magnificent Byzantine mosaics, and Modena, the city of Pavarotti and of the "aceto balsamico".


Children of all ages are welcome here, but partner hotel Palazzo di Varignana is more suitable for families as it offers more facilities for them.
