PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Tenuta Bagni de' Consoli is a unique holiday location, the result of a genius who has been able to represent the "Italic inspiration" with an extraordinary project, taking the Guest on a journey through time, from the Roman era to the present day, with rooms, objects and constructions, with atmospheres and landscapes that evoke the splendours of a thousand-year old past that recalls in every living room, bedroom, corridor or bathroom, through a material, a fresco, a fabric, a painting or a precious memento from distant civilizations and lands. The recent restoration of the 17th century villa with two floors plus attic, surrounded by a large park, took a long time and was conducted through a constant search for excellence in the reconstruction work, by selecting the best materials, such as terracotta, marble, wood and the mosaics that cover the floors and walls, and by commissioning contemporary artists to create frescoes and fine finishes. This journey through time continues along a spectacular tunnel which, by connecting the original "classic" body to the modern body of the villa, literally "dives" into a surprisingly large indoor swimming pool, projecting us into the modernity of our time. The living areas with big windows overlooking the splendid view of the park, the large corner bar, the fully-equipped gym, the sauna and the Turkish bath characterize this vast wellness area. The water element characterizes the estate and, as its name indicates, recalls the ancient origins of the place where, along the ancient Via Consolare, stood the thermal baths which, as history tells us, were frequented by Roman Consuls. Just 1 km away is Bertinoro, a borgo of medieval origin known as "The Balcony of Romagna", located on a hill with a magnificent view over the Adriatic Sea and the Romagna Plain.
The complex consists of two bodies: the main villa and an adjacent annex. VILLA. Once past the main door, the small entrance hall leads to, in counterclockwise order, the cloakroom and laundry room, the sumptuous large hall with living and dining areas, a first staircase leading up to the first floor, the kitchen with adjoining large loggia, or, fifth way, to the hallway followed by a corridor from which a second staircase leads up to the first floor. Along the corridor there is a service bathroom. Two double bedrooms, which share a bathroom with shower, represent the ground floor sleeping area which can be accessed via a staircase leading down from the first floor, or from the park through an independent entrance door. The first floor, accessible via three different staircases, is composed of five double bedrooms, two with en-suite bathroom (one with shower and one with Jacuzzi tub and shower), two twin bedrooms (with joinable beds), a bathroom with shower and a bathroom with Jacuzzi tub. The first floor is completed by a study and a large room, once used as a Dance Hall. A staircase leads up to the attic floor with a twin bedroom and a bathroom with shower. ANNEX. From the living area on the ground floor a staircase and a characteristic tunnel lead to the modern detached structure with the big indoor swimming pool around which extends a large living and relaxation area, together with two other living areas with dining area. One of these, equipped with a corner bar and a bathroom with shower, leads to the wellness area with a fully-equipped gym, sauna, turkish bath and a further bathroom with shower (sauna and turkish bath on request with 2 days notice). On the first floor are a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, with joinable beds, served by a bathroom with shower.
The magic of time travel, which began in the 17th century villa and carried on in the modern annex, continues in the 15,000 sq m park, a masterpiece of elegant design and late Renaissance classical inspiration in which statues, amphorae, fountains, watercourses, stairways, pergolas and relaxation corners respect the geometric shapes, order and symmetries of the "Italian Garden". Once past the entrance gate to the estate, a long driveway, lined with linden trees and illuminated by lanterns, leads to the main entrance of the villa located on the northern façade, where a first large fountain opens up the scenery of a veritable park of wonders which spreads over three levels, between long paths, large lawns, imposing terracotta flower pots and glimpses of wonderful views of fields, vineyards and hills that gently descend to the not too distant coasts of the Adriatic Sea. Another fountain is surrounded by a green haven of quiet and silence where you can shelter and abandon yourself to meditation or reading, but what dominates the scene in the heart of the park is the work of exquisite landscape architecture, created by smoothly linking the beautiful fountain, located in the centre of the rose garden with its original arched structure, to the large swimming pool through an imposing marble staircase which collects the water and lets it flow down along its sides. Among the splendid fountains, which create heavenly atmospheres with their plays of water and lights, are an infinite variety of flowers, plants and trees. At the end of the tour of the park, a beautiful large natural-stone fountain seems to take us back to the most remote era of our journey through time.
Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.
Tenuta Bagni de' Consoli has two swimming pools, one outside in the large park and one indoors. The large 60 sq m (12 x 5 m) indoor swimming pool, 1,60 m deep and tiled in mosaic, lies in the new modern body connected to the villa (It can be heated on request with an extra cost, except in July and August). All around it, the large windows offer a wonderful view of the park and the outdoor swimming pool which, when the large French windows are opened, seems to merge with it. The large living areas that surround it, the comfortable beds of refined design, the piped music system, the corner bar in the adjacent wellness area with gym, sauna, turkish bath and changing rooms and the lighting, make this large indoor pool a haven of the highest level of comfort you could wish for. No less exciting and scenically unique is the large 130 sq m outdoor swimming pool, with the depth varying from 1,40 to 3 m, also tiled in mosaic and illuminated. Surrounded by a large solarium equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas, it offers an enchanting view of the large marble staircase, down whose sides flow two streams from the fountain located in the centre of the wonderful rose garden set on a hill in this splendid park full of flowers and plants of all kinds.
