ABOUT THE AREA
In the valley to the north is the tiny Tuscan village of Lutirano, on the other side 3 km down the hill in Romagna there is Tredozio, one kilometer from end to end. In Tredozio you can find butchers, bakers, general stores, bars and banks. A local family owns Henry's, the pizzeria. The new Locanda Guelfo serves Sunday brunch and other meals by appointment. At the other end of town, is the Michelin-rated restaurant Il Mulino di San Michele.
By special request, Chef Gentilini, owner of the Restaurant Il Mulino di San Michele, will cook a typical 19th century dinner for you to be served at Villa La Collina.

In summer evenings, in the ancient courtyard of the Palazzo Fantini, in Tredozio, there are concerts ranging from jazz to chamber music organized by the province's cultural department. There are public tennis courts in Tredozio, golf courses at Forlì, Riolo Terme and Milano Marittima on the Adriatic, and trails for mountain biking, horse-riding and trekking. A pleasant walk through the woods from La Collina leads to the Urrai family farm, where flocks of sheep and goats supply milk to make cheeses in the traditional Sardinian way. This is not the Chiantishire of souvenir shops and Leaning Tower T-shirts; this is the real, rural and peaceful Italy.

Ravenna and the Adriatic coast are 45 minutes away: Florence and the other historical Tuscan cities are within easy reach; the beautiful, bustling city of Bologna, often overlooked on the tourist trail, is just over an hour away. As a break from driving, we advise use of the excellent train services from Faenza. Alitalia, British Airways, EasyJet and Ryanair fly to Bologna.
