Enjoy

This rambling stone farmhouse villa has been modernized to offer a delightful experience in the countryside of Emilia-Romagna between Milan and Florence. The nearby castle offers guests access to its spa and restaurants.

Location

Guests are welcome in the nearby castle and the village where there is a hotel within the village homes converted to hotel accommodations. It is about a 5 minute drive from the villa. There is a fine restaurant located in the old dairy and Parmesan cheese factory that specializes in the dishes of Emilia with ingredients from its garden and local foods from the region. And, of course, this is a region that reigns in Italy for Parmesan cheese, prosciutto ham from Parma, tortellini and balsamic vinegar from Modena.

Guests are invited to the spa located in the village.

Nearby is the fascinating town of Salsomaggiore Terme with restaurants, cafes and art. Its art deco main thermal baths and the pleasant boulevards with sidewalk cafes echo of the days in the last century when spa treatments were enjoyed for both their social and medical benefits. At one time Italian state medical insurance covered spa treatments. No longer, so you do see some spa towns like the closest little town of Tabiano Terme have very little going on.

Tennis courts in nearby village of Tabiano Terme and golf in Salsomaggiore.

Take a short drive to the Fidenza Village Outlet Mall, Italy's largest, with more than 100 fine stores and many restaurants. The Fico Eataly Food World just north of Bologna is a 1.5 hour's drive.

This area is recognized for food and music. This is the home of Parmesan cheese, Prosciutto di Parma, Felino Salami, Balsamic Vinegar. The famous Berceto Mushroom restaurant is an hour's drive. Nearby Parma is the home of Giuseppe Verdi.

Nearby are beautiful towns like Parma (Verdi's home), Cremona, Mantua, Modena, Bologna and Milan. Verona and Pisa are a 2 hour's drive as well as the Liguria sea. Emilia-Romagna's Motor Valley is here where you can see factories, museums and even drive a Lamborghini, Ducati, Pagani, Tazzari and Maserati.

Train access: reach the nearby town of Fidenza by train direct from Milano (1+ hour) and Bologna (1hr 45min). Or for more connections such as 1.5 hr trip from Florence use Parma a 40 minute drive and lovely city.

Exterior

From its position on a rise, the views are very nice: rolling countryside with a castle in the distance.

Outside is a wood-fired pizza oven on the other side of the pool and a barbecue for guest use.

Interior

You can feel the comfort of time in this marvelous villa with its pool and large garden.

Outdoor spaces beckon with a huge covered terrace and views across the garden, the fields and the castle in the near distance. 

Indoors is a huge living room with a fireplace for use in the cooler months. Across the pool from the house there is a small building with a wood-fired pizza oven as well as a barbecue.

Built in the 1600s in a traditional form, the building has been updated with modern bathrooms, heat, complete eat-in kitchen. There is also a dining room area in the great room.
