Customer reviews

Trip advisorThis hotel won the Certificate of Excellence from the world's leading review website, which honours hotels & accommodations that consistently demonstrate a commitment to hospitality excellence.

Your Destination

The historical village of Varignana, on the gentle Emilian headland, overlooks what was once the ancient Roman city of Claterna, where today it is possible to admire important still-visible archaeological finds, such as a Domus and mosaics.

The most ancient architectural monument in Varignana is undoubtedly the Romanesque Crypt of San Lorenzo. Dating back to the 9th-10th century, with massive rocks in the internal walls and precious capitals with eight columns, each entirely different, it is dominated by an ancient tower, the symbol of the village.

Palazzo di Varignana is a unique destination not only for the many activities offered within the 20 acres of private parkland, but especially for its strategic position to organize half-day or even full-day tours in some of the cities considered as the most beautiful in Italy, such as Florence or Ferrara. Or discover the gastronomic treasures of this area visiting wineries and cheese factories or the Italian car excellences like Lamborghini, Maserati, Ferrari and, last but not least, enjoy a beach day at the Adriatic Riviera.

Your Hotel

This is a unique site, rich in fascinating history and the glory of the Bolognese hills which overlook the ancient city. From here you can enjoy a view of infinite horizons as far as the Adriatic Riviera and the foothills of the Alps. This is an ideal destination to recharge oneself, deep in the silence of the parkland and the large SPA with its indoor and open-air pools.

Palazzo Varignana Resort & SPA is a historical residence commissioned by Count Orazio Bargellini in 1705, which then became the property of the Florentine Bentivoglio family. It is a splendid example of a typical 17th-century Tuscan country residence.

During your stay sample the hotel's own range of chocolate, 'Palazzo 1705'.  The idea was derived from the history of the senatorial Bolognese families whose fates were intertwined with the Aragonese families of Spain and the Bourbons of France.  It was these families that brought the cocoa bean back to Europe. Many many years on, the passion for chocolate and coco lives on at the Palazzo di Varignana Resort & Spa!
