Now with a cool companion space repurposed from a barn into a spacious industrial style loft, you have the best of both worlds in the beautiful countryside.
Casa del Contadino Bologna, Italy
Situated on five hectares of rolling farmland and forest just outside of Bologna, this former farmers house was originally part of a larger estate that includes a manor house and converted barn. In 2003, a Russian antiquarian inspired by his love for nature and the area fell in love with the estate and began renovations for a dynamic project that would eventually include the charming B&B as well as an event and social space. The restoration process involved the renovation of each building with special attention to eco-sustainability through renewable energy sources, photovoltaic systems, water catchment, phytoremediation and biomass heating systems.
Constructed of concrete, brick and wood, the rustic bones and original materials of the house remain largely intact. The common area on the ground floor features a quaint sitting room and a rustic kitchen while the three bedrooms reside above on the second floor with views of the countryside. Furnished with rustic antiques, the home retains much of the original character and simple charms of the past.
The adjacent barn was turned into a spacious and refined loft, with industrial-style interior design and expansive light filled spaces for events and social gatherings and is also available for rent through Boutique-Homes.

The Emilia-Romagna region in northern Italy extends from the Apennine mountains to the Po river in the north. Well known for its historic cities, beautiful countryside and local cuisine, its capital Bologna, is a vibrant town with a rich medieval history. Home to the world’s oldest university, it’s well known as the gastronomic capital of Italy and is often regarded as one of its most beautiful cities with a maze of porticoed and collonaded medieval streets and some of the best restaurants in the country. The Via Emilia splits the province in two along its east–west axis, dividing the Apennine mountains in the south from the the northern plains of the Pianura Padana. You are an hour from the Adriatic coast and the town of Ravenna, famed for its brightly colored Byzantine mosaics and an hour east of the gastronomic city of Modena.
