VILLA SOFIA 8

Emilia Romagna - Forlì - Cesena - CESENA

Description:

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Villa Sofia is the ideal place for families or groups of friends seeking a richly satisfying experience in an elegant and refined setting, a short distance from all the main attractions of the Adriatic coast. The location and its broad and open panorama are certainly the most characteristic qualities of the property. Beautiful portico areas set up for preparing outdoor meals will allow you to enjoy a fantastic view. Designed by the architect Mark Peticca, the villa has been planned so as to integrate with the hill, without disturbing the rural balance. The villa has been inserted silently in the territory both structure-wise and height-wise so as to be almost hidden among the hills. Please Note: when the property is rented in this solution no other guests will be present on site.

Your Emma Villas Customer service is LUCA BISACCHI and you can reach him for any emergencies, or further information you may required during your stay. All useful telephone numbers will be sent together with your booking documents.

Interior:

The volume of this residence is the result of the intersection of two rectangular bodies forming an “L” shape and a third, almost square, central body, at a 45° angle in respect of the direction of the arms of the “L”. The large pillar is the guiding element between the living room and the balcony that faces onto the living area whilst the kitchen is completely separate. On the opposite side, up four steps, we come to the sleeping area consisting of a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with tub, another two double bedrooms, a twin bedroom with joinable beds and two more bathrooms with shower. A white marble staircase leads down to the basement consisting of a bathroom with tub and shower.

Park:

The outdoor area covers about 10,000 sq m. The areas surrounding the villa and pool are planted with grass, flowers and bushes while on the remaining part of the land are olive trees, tall trees and vegetables. The property has a panoramic portico equipped with sofa and chairs, the ideal place from which to enjoy the sunset over the Adriatic coast whilst enjoying a good glass of wine, and a dining area with table and chairs. The entire property is fenced with high metal mesh 1.60 metre. 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.

Swimming Pool:

The regular-shaped pool is about 10 m from the villa and is situated at the back down three steps. It measures 14 x 7 m with the depth varying from 1,10 to 1,40 m. Entrance is via Roman steps; the pool is lined in tiles and has chlorine purification. The paved solarium area is equipped with sunbeds, sofas, small tables and umbrellas. The pool is open from the last Saturday in April to the first Saturday of October.

TO DO

Location and distances


Behind the villa are the hills of Romagna, where you can drive along scenic roads and come to wonderful wineries and restaurants: the panorama, good food and excellent wine will pleasantly accompany your time as guests of Villa Sofia. No surprise that Tonino Guerra hoped that the hills and countryside around Cesena should be called I Giardini Romagnoli (the gardens of Romagna). The view from the large park sweeps across the Adriatic coast: from Ravenna to Rimini and on the right rises up Monte Titano in San Marino. A few minutes' drive will take you from Villa Sofia to the major seaside and cultural resorts of Romagna.

Has the property matched your expectations?
The garden and pool area are exceptional. Beautiful views and plenty of outdoor seating. Not easy to get around without a car, you have a steep hill to climb but the bus service to Cesena was very good and reliable as were the trains.
