Located near the south eastern corner of Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region, Torre Fantini claims a hilltop position amid the rolling green landscape bordering the Foresti Casentinesi, a national park extending southward into Tuscany.In fact, this property was at one time in Tuscany! Torre Fantini is an old farm tower belonging to the family of the same name.

This family still lives in the Palazzo Fantini located nearby the Torre, 1 km away. The magical garden surrounding the Palazzo, a 17th century residence, belongs to the association of Grandi Giardini Italiani ( Great Italian Gardens ) and is open to the public for tours, courtyard concerts during the summer and for weddings.The village of Tredozio is deliciously quiet, yet harbours a number of inviting restaurants-particularly the Mulino di San Michele (in an old mill).

A ten-minute walk takes one from the tower to the village centre offering the conveniences of grocery shops, a bakery, a bar and bus station.Torre Fantini offers a stay in a delightful farmhouse, remodelled in the traditional style, 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, and provided with a satellite TV and small refrigerator.A bathroom with shower accommodates each bedroom.
