The Palace


Ca’ Palazzo Malvasia is immersed in a vast private estate in the middle of a plateau overlooking the hills of Bologna. The private park, full of deers and squirrels, is 4 km away from the A1 highway exits (Milan to Rome) and 13 km from the center of Bologna, or about 15 to 18 minutes by car. Florence is 1h away.

Cà Palazzo Malvasia is an ancient 17th century hunting manor set at the center of a private estate. Originally the building was built as a holiday resort for the noble family whose name it bears so as to spend the summer away from the bustle of the city and at the same time take care of the estate.

The villa, equipped with free Wi-Fi, offers free and fenced parking, has a shared kitchen and, every morning, a rich breakfast buffet is served. The two large living rooms are ideal for those looking for a bit of relax with a book or a chat on the comfortable sofas. The library hosts ancient books. All the spacious and elegant suites are air-conditioned and equipped with satellite TV and enjoy views of the garden and a private bathroom with hairdryer and complimentary toiletries. The Medieval Tower from the 13th century enriches an already elegant structure crowning the splendid villa.

Ca’ Palazzo Malvasia is the ideal solution for those who want to enjoy the peacefulness of the countryside while being immersed in history. All within minutes of Bologna’s historic center.

Cà Palazzo Malvasia is located 3.2 km from  Borgonuovo railway station, for which a round-trip shuttle service is available upon request. Moreover, the villa is in an ideal position for those who want to follow the events of the Unipol Arena in Casalecchio di Reno as it is only a 10/15 minutes drive away. Lastly, Bologna’s airport is 15 minutes away by car while Bologna Centrale train station is 20 minutes away.

If you are a group and wish to book the entire villa (up to 16+ beds ) please contact us!

The history of the Palace (Click here!)

“This interesting complex rich in history and art lies at the center of the vast plateau that creates the fraction of Montechiaro, in an area that is still intact in terms of landscape”. Italian superintendency of cultural artefacts.

The villa, probably built by Count Rodolfo Tortorelli towards the beginning of the seventeenth century, was to represent the achieved well-being of the family that had had in Antonio, a merchant, his forefather and first member of the house inscribed in the nobility of Bologna.

The acquisition of vast lands in Montechiaro prompted the Tortorelli family to organize the estate by  building several farmhouses that still exist today and are located in the vicinity of Ca’ Palazzo Malvasia. The latter is in the midst of the estate, in an open position on the countryside, enjoying the beautiful panorama of the surrounding hills.

Far from the splendor of so many contemporary villas, the building was actually born as a “hunting manor”, a house of “good proportions” and dimensions for the time where the owner could spend the summer and at the same time follow his estate.

In 1636 the nobleman Francesco Ghisilardi Tortorelli, the last of his family, left heir to his entire fortune, including the property of Montechiaro, his nephew Conte Ercole Malvasia, son of his daughter Elena and Petronio Malvasia. As a condition of the inheritance he placed the obligation that Hercules added to his surname that of Tortorelli Ghisilardi.

The family acquired wealth and power, becoming the first Malvasia wine merchants for northern Italy.

The first part of the building to be built was the thirteen century medieval tower, characterized by an elegant eave-shaped frame, to peer into the Reno Valley and give alarms should invaders had arrived from the south. Today the tower hosts a beautiful suite.

The first land registry of the property (land registry Boncompagni) dates back to 1787 in which the villa is called "casino Tortorelli".

During the Second World War, the complex was partially damaged by bombings and occupied by the Nazis. In 1855 the manor was enlarged adding the porticos on the left wing.

As in the past, Ca ’Palazzo Malvasia is surrounded by a private estate, a small church and another villa. The property remains of the family that has decided to open the hunting manor, previously uninhabited for long periods of time, to the rest of the world.

In 1985 the property, together with its complex, was registered in the register of properties bound by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage, which reports “The complex is integrated into a unitary morphology and cultural vision, of an architectural taste and a typical building tradition of the Bologna countryside ”.
