Monteveglio: B&B Ca Gioiosa

(Between Bologna and Modena)

Reviewed by: May from Canada, review #2306

When: July 2008

Wonderful B&B in the countryside outside Bologna with spectacular views, great rooms, terrific hosts, and accessibility to major cities and sites!

We stayed at Ca Gioiosa in early July and had a wonderful experience!

We were looking for a B&B in the country to serve as a home-base for exploring Emilia-Romagna, and found this one very accessible to day trips in the region (and beyond - other guests were doing day trips to Lake Garda, Venice, CinqueTerre, Florence from here).

Lovely property situated in the Apennine hills just west of Bologna (15 minutes away)- terrace views, small pool, lovely rooms, TV/Internet. The owner, Fiona, provides a terrific hearty breakfast, arrangements for all kinds of tours (check out foodie-oriented ones), attractions and restaurant recommendations, cooking classes in her own kitchen, and... basically, just about anything you want!

Highly recommended! We'll go out of our way to stay at Ca Gioiosa next time we are in Italy!
