Hotel Villa Roncuzzi
A villa from the late 1800s, this has been transformed into a refined four-star hotel, located in the heart of Romagna, close to the principal motorways, railway station, airports of Bologna, Rimini and Forl and the historical city of Ravenna (a UNESCO site). It's close too to Faenza, the international city of ceramics, and the Adriatic coast.
Immersed in a verdant park of age-old trees and a swimming pool, it elegantly blends the ancient villa with modern innovations.
The hotel offers 22 elegant and spacious rooms with 'fin de siécle' furnishings and chandeliers and all modern comforts. The hotel is in San Pancrazio, a small outlying district of the Municipality of Russi, in the Ravenna province.
It's an ideal place to celebrate an event, a success, a love affair, simply to enjoy a moment of peace and serenity, escaping the noise of the city for the delicate pleasures of country life and the alluring luxury of a charming holiday.
Recently renovated in absolute sympathy with its original design, the hotel is set in splendid grounds with age-old linden trees and box-trees, a swimming pool, and a spacious internal courtyard graced by an art nouveau fountain and local plants and flowers.
The hotel offers elegant design and rooms for demanding tourists or business people needing a relaxing break at the end of a long day of work. The 22 rooms are furnished with elegance and have their original stone walls and arches and fine wooden beams. The attention to detail is everywhere: private bathroom, with tub or spacious shower and courtesy set, room service, independent air conditioning, telephone, hairdryer, LCD TV, Satellite TV and Sky, minibar, wireless system.
Every room is decorated with fine frescoes, sculptures, pottery and paintings by noted artists. A choice of deluxe room, junior suite and suite, all with special details and different colour and style, each distinguished by a bird of prey painted on the wall: falcon, owl, hawk, golden eagle and so forth.
The hotel has ample parking. There is a cellar with a broad selection of famous local and national Italian wines; there is the Agavi bar with its fantastic cocktails and a good breakfast with sweet and savoury dishes.
