The space

Unique Bolognesi hills house!
Staying in this four storey house in the village of Livergnano (15 km from Bologna) is a unique experience, as it is actually dug into the rocks! On the front side, you’ll have a wonderful view of the famous rolling surrounding Bologna (i collini Bolognesi). Inside the house, you can still see the nude rocks at the back, giving the interior a very warm and relaxing atmospere.
On the ground floor, there is a fully equipped kitchen (i.e dish washer, stove, oven etc). One level up, a cozy living room with a comfortable sofa (which can be transformed in a double bed) awaits you as well as the bathroom. A double bed with second toilet is on the third floor and on the third floor there is a lovely roof terrace facing the south. Excellent to enjoy breakfast in the morning or have dinner at night! WiFi internet is available at all four levels of the house.
Livergnano itself is a small hill town where you will find no difficulties to relax and enjoy life. Just have a coffee at the local bar just around the corner, a tasty dinner in one of the restaurants very close by or go hiking or mountainbiking in the hills that surrounding you (especially in the national park Riserva naturale Contrafforte Pliocenico!
Situated along the Strada della Futa (known from the classing and vintage “Mille Miglia” car race), the historic center of Bologna (Italy’s culinary capital!) can be reached by car within half an hour. Also several other historic cities in the area (Florence, Modena, Ferrara, Ravenna) are only a short drive away. Although a car gives you some more flexibility to explore the region and do day trips, it is also possible to geta round by public transport.
In short, this house is the perfect base to relax, explore the Appenini hiand Toscane countryside and make city trips. We would love to welcome you at this cosy place!

We spent 3 nights in the "house of rocks". Massimo is a phantastic host, his house beautiful and absolutely unique. Livergnano has a lovely community. We enjoyed it a lot.

This house is modern, with all the comfort you need (washing machine, dishwasher...) and has a *wonderful* terrace on the rootftop, on which you can sunbath, eat, watch the sunset and gaze at stars at night while slowly drinking a good glass of italian wine... You can even take a shower on the terrace, since no neighbors on the left or on the right have terraces, so nobody can watch you! You just have the countryside in front of you, and the roofs of the other houses on your sides. Livergnano is a small village in the hills not so far from Bologna (very interesting town!), and Massimo's house is not on the main road through the village but on a little and peaceful nearby street, so don't bother about noise. The hills around Livergnano are very beautiful, and you can easily spend hours driving on the winding roads around, or escape to Firenze for a day trip. The neighbors you can meet in the street are very friendly (but not intrusive), especially Umberto, who have a little "museum" just nearby, displaying old things from World War II, since there were fierce battles which took place here between German and American soldiers. Massimo itself is very friendly, and you will have no problem communicating with him. To sum it up: it's a very good idea to stay there, especially because of the wonderful terrace, the beautiful countryside, the relative freshness of the hills... Nothing negative!

It's not easy to find the words to describe Massimo's apartment. Calling this little jewel an apartment doesn't really describes what I really felt when I first walked into the "house". I was not prepared to it because the few pictures posted are useless. It's not a house the way we know it, it's something that belongs more to the oniric world. The "house" is a sort of tower literally dug into the mountain. a winding stairway surrounded by the mountain (no walls, no wallpapers, just the nude rock!!!) walks you all the way up to the top: first floor: kitchen, second floor: living room and a nice restroom, third floor: bedroom with small toilet, fourth floor: panoramic terrace. The place is clean and comfortable (two plasma tvs, wifi). This is a perfect place if you want to escape your everyday city stress for a few days. Bologna downtonw is 25-30 minutes away (car needed). Last but not least Massimo is a great host. Wow!!!!! This place is f.....ing unreal!

Casa super attrezzata dotata di tutti i comfort (lavatrice, lavastoviglie, forno, frigo, frizer, WiFi,tv) e perfetta come da foto. Anche il cane si è ambientato benissimo fin da subito. Ci si sente come a casa propria. Host molto gentile e disponibile. Comunicazione facile e veloce. Location molto particolare e suggestiva. Anche i vicini e il paesino super accoglienti e cordiali. Da ripetere il prima possibile!!

Un accueil très chaleureux de la part du propriétaire. Une vue imprenable sur la nature et le calme sont très appréciables. La maison située dans un petit village (200 habitants) a été refaite à neuf à tous les équipements nécessaires pour passer un séjour agréable et confortable. Un endroit de rêve que l'on ne pourra oublier et que l'on souhaitera découvrir à nouveau

Casa stupenda, accogliente, silenziosa e moderna. Possibilità di fare lunghe passeggiate nei dintorni. Ottimo per staccare la spina qualche giorno e rientrare in contatto con la natura. Ottima comunicazione, gentilezza e disponibilità. Ci torneremo sicuramente
