  • 3-floor building
  • Built in 1800
  • Garden
  • Car parks

This villa was built in the early 1800s and was renovated and expanded in 1858. The noble part features a Venetian and Palladian façade, whereas the central body is embellished with two overlapping three-light windows and the majestic pediment.

This building has a net saleable area of about 825 m² developed over three floors, besides the veranda and the portico 125 m². It has been renovated over the years, but it requires interior finishes.

The 12,000 m² private park develops along the Po river and features a carefully tended lawn embellished with tall trees. The whole property is fenced.


The ground floor includes the living areas with a fireplace, a study, a bedroom, a wardrobe room and two bathrooms. The right wing includes a portico and a veranda, which connect with an additional living room with a fireplace, two bathrooms and a technical room.

A stone and wrought iron staircase leads to the first floor. Here, you’ll find a large living room with doors and windows overlooking the garden. There is also the master bedroom with a large en-suite bathroom, two double bedrooms, one of which with a walk-in wardrobe, a wardrobe room (which can be turned into a bedroom) that gives access to another bathroom, and an additional bathroom.

The second floor, which was the old attic, features a more rustic atmosphere with its terracotta floors and exposed beams. This floor can be turned into an independent apartment, as it includes a large living room, a kitchen with a fireplace, two bedrooms with a shared bathroom, and an additional bathroom/laundry room.


The elegant terrazzo flooring, typical of this geographic area, has been laid after the installation of the underfloor heating and cooling system. It perfectly matches the coffered ceilings, which have also been renovated.

All the rooms are enriched with fine materials, such as local stone, handcrafted terracotta and wrought iron. However, they need to be refined with the final details, for which an analytical estimation is available.

The exteriors, including masonry and fixtures, are in perfect conditions. The facade with its pediment and coat of arm makes quite an impression.


This versatile and charming property that can be used as a prestigious residence or an accommodation facility. The latest renovation was made in view of establishing a country resort business. Still, it can be easily turned into a private residence with independent areas where you can host family and friends.

Location and nearby infrastructure

Villa is in Emilia Romagna’s countryside, along the Po river, 2 km from the nearest built-up area, where you can go for your daily errands.

Ferrara is a 10-minute drive (8 km), Bologna and Venice are 65 km and 100 km away, respectively. The nearest airports are Bologna (70 km) and Venice (100 km).

Even the Adriatic sea is easy to reach, as Chioggia and Ferrara beaches are less than a one-hour drive (70 km).

Given the vicinity with river and sea parks, this area is ideal for daily excursions or relaxing trips, where you can enjoy the wonderful nature and delicious local food.

      How to buy property with Tranio


      Send us an enquiry with an approximate description of the property or investment project you’re interested in.

      Meeting the partners

      After clarifying your enquiry, we will introduce you to our partners and/or local agents.

      Offer selection

      We will help you to select suitable options. Tranio does not charge a commission for this — the property price remains the same as if you contacted our partner directly.

      Viewing tour

      You then view the property or properties you have chosen. Our partners or agents from Tranio's European offices will meet you in situ.

      Transaction closure

      Having chosen the best property, you will sign the sales or investment agreement (for development).


      • Can I get a mortgage abroad?

        It depends on the country. For example, German banks willingly offer mortgages to foreigners at 1.5-2 % per annum with LTV up to 70%. Spain offers less favourable terms: the minimum rate for foreigners is 2.5% per annum. The situation is different in Greece: although the law does not prohibit banks from issuing loans, in practice, Greek banks don’t issue loans to local nor foreign property buyers. You can learn about the mortgage terms in your preferred country by contacting Tranio’s local agents.

      • How does the purchase procedure work?

        The purchase procedure depends on the country where you buy property. Generally, after choosing a property you need to sign a preliminary agreement with the seller and carry out a due diligence of the property by checking the relevant documents and the property's technical condition. After that, all parties sign the sales agreement and the notary registers the transaction. As a rule, the purchase registration costs amount to approximately 10% of the property price.

      • Can a residence permit be obtained by buying property?

        In some countries it is possible. Residence-for-property purchase programmes are known as Golden Visas programmes. Greece, Spain, Latvia, and Portugal offer the most popular Golden Visas in Europe. The Greek residence permit is the cheapest and can be obtained by buying a property worth at least €250,000, while organising all of the documents costs about €19,000. Certain countries offer citizenship to property buyers — for example, an investor can get their hands on a Cypriot passport by buying a property worth at least €2M.

      • How does Tranio make money if your service is free for the clients?

        We share the commission, which the buyer or the seller (depending on the country) pays to our partners — foreign real estate agencies. The price of this service is the same as if you contacted the agency directly — this is an important condition and applies to all of our partnership agreements.

      • Who guarantees the transaction security?

        The transaction security is guaranteed by the notary who draws up the sales agreement and checks the information on the previous and current owners of the property, any outstanding restrictions, mortgage, and third-party encumbrances. Tranio is not responsible for the parties involved in the transaction.
