Charming restored farmhouse in walking distance to a village

Torre Fantino is set on a hilltop amid the rolling green landscape on the edge of the Foresti Casentinesi National Park, on the border between Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany. In fact, this property was once a part of Tuscany. The charming village of Tredozio is within easy walking distance, and the location is ideal for exploring central Italy’s top regions of Emilia Romagna, Tuscany and Umbria.

Torre Fantino is an old farm tower belonging to the family who lives nearby in Palazzo Fantini, just less than a mile away. A magical garden surrounds the 17th-century Palazzo. It belongs to the association of Grandi Giardini Italiani (Great Italian Gardens) and is open to the public for tours, and for courtyard concerts during the summer and for weddings. Guests of our rental are welcome to visit this garden.

Ten-minute walk brings you from Torre Fantino to the village center. Tredozio is deliciously quiet, yet has a number of inviting restaurants, most notably the Mulino di San Michele, housed in an old water mill. A charming little river runs through the village. Shops include a couple of grocery stores, an excellent produce shop, coffee bars, a butcher, chemist, bank with ATM and a post office. There is also a small information point from which you can rent mountain bikes during the summer. There is a bus service to Faenza and Forlì. And there is a tennis club nearby, just five minutes’ walk from Torre Fantino.

Paved road leads from the main road (strada statale) to the house. The property is partially fenced and surrounded by fields. There are a few houses not far from the Torre Fantino, but you will not be disturbed by their presence.

Tuscan Romagna blends elements from the rich cultures of both Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna. Food and wine lovers could not find them themselves a better spot, lovers of history and culture have a wealth of small and larger nearby towns to explore and lovers of nature will feel they are driving through a rural paradise. Add traditional crafts, from cheese and wine making to fine ceramics and a long tradition of skilled leather work, plus the chance to catch cultural events and traditional festivals, and to take language or cooking courses and you have something for everyone – except those in search of bright city lights.

Torre Fantino offers a stay in a delightful farmhouse, remodeled in the traditional manner, with terrace views over a lovely stretch of countryside. Each of the three double bedrooms is attractively furnished in a refined rustic style with beamed ceilings and cotto toscano floors, satellite TV and small refrigerator. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with shower. At this altitude, the nights are always cool so air conditioning is not necessary; but, just in case, fans can be provided on request.

Additional amenities: Airport distance:Bologna 75 km Florence 90 km Pisa 200 km Venice 240 km, Electric table top stove with 4 burners, Filter coffee maker, Iron and ironing board, Italian Moka brand coffee maker, Pool: 5 x 10m
