“Relais Varnello July 2013”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

This was our first visit to the area. Varnello sits a couple of miles outside the little town of Brisighella on a ridge of hills formed by thick gypsum deposits. The B&B was an excellent place to stay to see the area. The owner and staff very helpful and friendly, the building, garden and swimming pool all beautifully maintained. Our room was large with very good ensuite. Wardrobe storage was pretty good (but needs more hangers!) but could have done with a bit more cupboard space. Air conditioning in the room did the job pretty well - with 30 deg heat outside. Breakfast was very good.

We stayed five nights at this clean, simple guest house where the charming Madam was helpful and endearing. The place is set in unimaginably beautiful countryside in the Parc Vena Gesso with long well-signed walks through fields and woods.
Our room was plain and unpretentious, almost monastic, with a great view. Simplicity beats pretension or bad taste any day. Breakfast was generous and the wifi free. Perfection.

Stayed here for 2 nights wth my wife and our son.. Very nice place to stay, very friendly, great breakfast. Nice view and very quiet. Nice restaurant (Mario) nearby (200 m) where you can have a good lunch and/or dinner
for a reasonable price.

We have been coming here every year for the last 5 years, we usually kick off our Italian holidays with a short stay at this beautiful agriturissmo, given its proximity to Bologna airport (~45 mins by car). We cannot recommend the Varnello highly enough. It is located a few kilometers from the small medieval town of Brisighella at the edge of the Carne national park. A short 10 to 15 minute walk will quickly have you in the middle of a protected woodland teeming with wildlife.

The scenery around the agriturissmo is absolutely beautiful, the garden area around the pool is immaculately maintained and provides spectacular views of the Monte Rontana and surrounding chalk hills.

All the bedrooms (which are air conditioned) are located on the first floor of the building and all have great views of the surrounding landscape. The bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms are spotless and are cleaned every day. The breakfast is amazing (easily the best that we have encountered in our many years staying in agriturissmos all around Italy) with a wide range of fruits, cheeses, meats, and cakes available. After the breakfast, there is nothing better than to relax by the pool for an hour or so to digest it all.

Finally, what really makes the Varnello so special is the warm welcome that you receive from the owner Giovanni and his wife. They really go out of their way to make sure that your stay here is an enjoyable one.

The Varnello has provided us with the perfect start to our Italian holidays. Grazie mille.

We were touring the Emilia Romangna region and wanted to visit a rural, historic area and decided to stop at Brisighella. We stayed at Relais Varnello, www.varnello.it and what a great find it was. The B&B is a bit out of the town on a spacious spread which was probably once a vineyard. There is a lovely, well kept swimming pool, the rooms are spacious and clean and the breakfast is ample and delicious. Their web site has pictures and they are accurate if you want to get a feel for it. This B&B is run by a delightful couple.The husband speaks English and his wife, who doesn't, still makes you feel welcome. There is a great restaurant in walking distance so you can enjoy a scrumptious Italian meal without having to drive after drinking some vino. We stayed for two nights and ate dinner in the same restaurant twice--something we never do. If you are driving around that region and like visiting the countryside and medieval towns, this is a real find.
