When it comes to foodie fantasy lands, the Italian region of Emilia-Romagna may be lesser-known than its neighbors Lombardy, Veneto and Tuscany, but it’s still one of the country’s most cherished gastronomic capitals and home to delicious destinations like Bologna, Modena and Parma. So, naturally, Borgo Condé Wine Resort, a four-star wine resort and spa set on a vineyard in the little village of Fiumana, is a dream pick for wine connoisseurs and culinary mavens.
With views of the green rolling hills from just about everywhere, each of the unique suites at this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner offers a look that’s impossibly chic – think white and cream hues artfully mixed with lush textures, custom furnishings and interesting artwork. There’s also a gym for daily workouts, a dreamy outdoor pool for sunny days and a brand-new spa for all the wine-inspired pampering you can muster.
But the piece de resistance is the exceptional wining and dining available at three unique dining spots, all of which have on-hand sommeliers to help pair your food and wine perfectly. In addition to savoring delicious fare and vino, you’ll also have the option to enjoy vineyard and cellar tours and book fun cooking classes where the talented chefs teach you their tricks of the trade. Taking home tried-and-true cooking tips from the pros? That’s our kind of souvenir.
All of the 32 uniquely styled and wonderfully spacious Junior suites stand out for their use of cream and white palettes, interesting artwork, customized furniture, sumptuous furnishings and sublime views of the vineyards and hills. Each comes with a private balcony and garden, as well as a double bed and a bathroom with shower or bathtub.
As you might expect of a food and wine destination, the gourmet offerings at the three unique signature restaurant do not disappoint. Enjoy exquisite lunches overlooking the hills of Predappio at Osteria, relish modern regional cuisine at the vineyard-facing Ristorante Il Sangiovese, or savor traditional dishes at Ristorante Il Borgo, which has a lovely terrace for al-fresco dining in the summer. All meals are prepared with fresh, seasonal ingredients and paired with well-chosen wines.
Beauty aficionados will adore the brand-new spa, a place of relaxed bliss complete with heated indoor pool, Turkish bath, sensory showers, relaxation room, and two cabins for massages and “wine therapy” – the practice of using the fruits and their extracts as a powerful antioxidant. If you can’t do without your daily workout, there’s also a small gym overlooking the vineyards and offering Technogym equipment. Please note that restrictions are in place for children; they must be over the age of six to use the spa and over the age of 12 to use the gym.
You’ll be staying on a vineyard in Emilia-Romagna’s small village of Fiumana, just over nine miles from Forli and an hour’s drive from Rimini, the largest beach resort on the Adriatic Sea. Must-dos in one of the country’s greatest gastronomic capitals include marveling at the perfectly preserved castles around Parma and Piacenza, visiting the ancient university in the graceful medieval city of Bologna, and checking out Motor Valley, the region that’s home to some of the world’s best-loved car manufacturers, such as Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati. Further not-to-be-missed thrills include cycling in the Maranello Hills, hiking in the Apennines, and spending a few hours at the National Museum of Giuseppe Verdi for fascinating insight into the life and works of the great Italian composer.
How to Get There
We came here with mixed expectations - but we were really surprised how calm and nice it is here. The estate is huge and you have a lot of privacy.
The restaurant is also very nice - beautiful view in the evening - and the prices are reasonable.
What we really liked is that they do not only have super fancy crazy expensive wines but reasonable priced wines (starting around 14€). Guten guests get 10% discount when buying wines for home.
The pool is a little bit crowded in the afternoon so some more possibilities for lying down would be nice.
The website said there will be no kids but there were some and that the whole estate would the smoking free, but the staff did not interrupt people smoking at the restaurant.
Our Appartement did not have a view into The Valley which was a pity but you can life with that :)
Breakfast options are also very good!
Would recommend this place to my parents and to all couples that want to have a Romantic Stay.
Having stayed at the Borgo Condé wine resort for 7 nights we found the location, room, service, food and of course the wine incredible! All the staff were so welcoming and helpful, and we have to thank Marco (I think was his name; the gentleman running the restaurant) for making our many evenings dining there perfect!
We generally relaxed and did very little; we did spend a day in Ravenna, which was a must see town within an hours drive.
We would suggest having a car if your staying for longer than a weekend as getting around isn’t the easiest without one.
Again thank you to all the staff for making it a very memorable week; we’ll definitely see you all again in the future!
Matt & Lauren
We had a rally nice stay in Borgo Condé. The Borgo is not only well situated to visit Ravenna, Bologna, ..., but has a superb location in the middle of the vineyards (take the nort entrance for a magnificent view). We had a junior suite and the room was indeed up to the standard. The food and the wines are great. During our stay we had on one day some problems with the staff. We discussed this with the general manager and, altough this was not the purpose of our discussion, he offered us immediately a nice compensation. Overall we can highly recommend a stay at Borgo Condé and will surely return for our next trip in Emilia-Romagna.
