During our month in Italy, we stayed at only one agriturismo--Antica Torre. We loved it. It is located on a lovely hillside overlooking a valley. The rooms were large, comfortable and well-appointed. The Pavesi family was lovely--welcoming, knowledgeable, and great cooks. All together a lovely and peaceful way to spend a week-end.

- Antica Torre is a biological farm holidays in a tiny middle of age village, once well connected to Parma and Piacenza castles. Among the green hills surrounded by nature and an absolute stillness, the town of Salsomaggiore and the food valley dominate the all landscape situated between Tuscany and Lombardy located near Ligurian See.Visiting these places means enjoy an historical and artistic culture made of typical food products such as “Culatello”, Parma Ham, Parmesan Cheese and many others that are the main symbols of Emilia Romagna’s food tradition listening the notes of Giuseppe Verdi’s Opera.The complex offers different types of fully furniture lodgings, both following a similar rustic theme.We have thought to call our rooms inside the Medieval tower and in the rustic buildings, with the names of maestro Giuseppe Verdi's Operas, like Traviata, Rigoletto, Nabucco etc.. For families or group of friends we offer large and confortable solutions. Our many rooms (dining room, living rooms and bedrooms) ensure privacy and relaxation, and the close relationship with the family make satisfaction almost guaranteed.An added bonus is the proximity of Salsomaggiore Terme City, with its renowned thermal springs.
