Palazzo di Varignana

The Palazzo di Varignana resort is located in sprawling parklands, 15 km south of Bologna. Not far from the main house, exclusive villas are hidden in the heart of nature with private pools and garden, in addition to the hotel's 150 rooms. Warm earthy tones link the interior with the surrounding nature. Clear lines and giving up on opulent décor place the focus on the historic building materials. The Varsana SPA with pools, saunas, hammam and Turkish bath provide healing and regeneration. The three restaurants offer culinary delights: the Trattoria Le Marzoline, located in a farmhouse, the Aurevo pool restaurant, and the new Il Grifone fine dining restaurant. Another special experience is the restaurant Treno Reale. In an authentic vintage coach, the prototype of the royal train of the year 1921, thanks to a sophisticated menu the guests embark onto a culinary journey into the past. Outstanding cuisine originates from nature and accordingly, alongside a vegetable garden and orchard, the agricultural estate also houses vineyards and over 160,000 heirloom olive trees. Guests can discover the world of quality olive oil at tastings, oil-based menus in Aurevo, SPA treatments or strolls through the olive groves.
