A Historic Italian Spa Resort Set In The Bolognese Hills

Palazzo di Varignana is expanding! The extension project is on its way and will increase facilities for guests. Apologies in advance for any inconveniences caused by the construction.

A historic spa resort crested over the Bolognese Hills with sweeping panoramas of the Italian
countryside—Palazzo di Varignana Resort and Spa is a tranquil blend of nature, history, and hospitality.

The gorgeously appointed Palazzo di Varignana Resort and Spa was originally a residence commissioned by Count Orazio Bargellini in 1705 which then became owned by the Florentine Bentivoglio family. As such, the resort still remains heavily influenced by the decor and architectural motifs explored during 17th century Tuscany. Today, the resort spans an impressive 50 acres of parkland with horizons stretching to the Adriatic Riviera and the foothills of the Alps.

The hotel’s 140 gorgeous guest rooms range from stylish and classic standard rooms to the jaw-droppingly elegant panorama suites which feature sweeping views of the adjacent valley. Each room features contemporary design elements, plush linens, and luxury amenities all chosen to create an eased ambiance for the perfect Italian escape.

VarSana Spa is the pride and joy of this historic Italian resort. The 20,000 square foot spa and wellness center is brimming with specialty rooms and features including indoor/outdoor pools, a steam bath, Jacuzzi, Finnish sauna, bio-sauna, icefall, a Vichy shower, couples treatment rooms, and much more. Additionally, the spa has plenty of lounge space which reflects the Italian adage “La Dolce Far Niente” — the sweetness of doing nothing.

Perfect for honeymoons, romantic escapes, and spa retreats, Palazzo di Varignana offers unparalleled respite and relaxation.
