Great value agriturismo in Brisighella with wonderful food and sweet views to the woodland hills.
I was a little concerned booking this property because it was so inexpensive. Am I glad I overcame my fears! Il Palazzo is a working agriturismo, just outside of the lovely town of Brisighella. The farm produces wine and is all organic.
There are a couple of apartments and several suite-type rooms. We were in the Terrace room and used it as a double. Our room was very clean and attractively furnished. Plenty of closet space and drawer space. The bathroom was upstairs in a loft-type situation, so if you don't like stairs or need to get up in the middle of the night to use the facilities, be forewarned!
Also, the room shares a common wall with the dining room. It was not a problem for us, but I can imagine it might be a problem if you wanted to go to bed early and there was a crowd in the dining room. The entrance to the room is a very nice terrace, overlooking the hills of Brisighella and the farm's vineyards.
The food is wonderful; if you like food prepared in a traditional manner. If you are looking for food stacked in skyscraper formations, with squiggles of sauces around the perimeter of your plate, eat elsewhere. The dining room has a fireplace and beamed ceilings.
Here is an example of a typical dinner: bruschetta topped with finely chopped parsley, a little tomato, garlic and olive oil. This was followed by spaghetti alla chitarra (a pasta made by rolling the sheet over a device covered with guitar-like strings) sauced with a beef ragu. For the secondo, we had a wonderful polpettone (sort of an Italian meatloaf) with baby green beans and eggplant. All of this can be accompanied by the farm's wines.
Il Palazzo is about a 5 minute drive to Brisighella, which has a medieval center, a rocca and a clock tower in incredibly lofty positions! It is very well positioned for daytrips to Dozza, Ravenna, Faenza.
