This is one of the loveliest places we've ever stayed in. Roberta was a wonderful host and made us feel really welcome. She supplied meats, cheeses, breakfast goodies, yoghurt, coffee, milk, home made liqueurs and much more for us. What a great way to begin our stay. The house was spotless and beautifully presented. There are two outdoor eating areas (bbq) and a stunning pool. This is a great place to base yourself with a car. We visited nearby Modena, Ferrara, Maranello, Vignola and caught the train to Bologna. Roberta also organize visits to see prosciutto and parmesan cheese being made. A wonderful experience. We also had a traditional lunch at nearby Acetaia Pedroni because Anthony Bourdain had eaten there. The food was really delicious and featured balsamic vinegar in every course including the ice cream. We also visited Roberta's husband's acetaia in their loft. We had a wonderful stay and highly recommend Casa Delle Noci.

hello, Casa delle noci could not have been better from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. A thirty minute drive from the airport is all it takes and as we stepped from the car Roberta was there to greet us and show us around the amazing property. You have the whole top floor of the building (Roberta and her family live in the house opposite) very spacious with three bedrooms( one with a large on-suit bathroom) a large living room, kitchen with everything you need including dishwasher etc the kitchen cupboards are stocked with more than enough for all your breakfasts also pasta sauce, cheese and ham and Roberta had left fresh fruit from the orchards and vines surrounding the property( apples figs plums black and green grapes) also Roberta had made a fruit tart and left a bottle of the local lambrusco, chocolates, home made cider and three types of liquor all made from there own fruit. The swimming pool was excellent, quite large but not too deep which was good as my daughter is only 8 and not a brilliant swimmer. Within a twenty minute drive of the house you have the Ferrari factory and museum, Lamborghini, ducati pagani and maserati also the old city of modena and bologna and more. There are lots of cheap pizzerias gelateria ( one we went to had over sixty flavours of ice cream all made on the premises) and very reasonably priced restaurants all ten minutes from the house. If you do want to treat yourself, in modena you have Osteria Francescana, 3 michilin stars and voted the third best restaurant in the world. Roberta also arranged for us a tour of the local parmigiano and prosciutto manufacturers and Robertas husband giorgio showed us where and how he makes his own homemade balsamic vinegar. It was my daughters first holiday abroad and she loved every minute of it, i think we will be back to stay at casa dell noci and see Roberta and her family again very soon. Glen

We traveled with my sister and her husband to northern Italy. This was a GREAT HOUSE with a beautiful pool. Centrally located to the areas we wanted to visit. The house was large with air conditioning, three bed rooms that were attractively decorated and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with breakfast food and wine and beer. What more could you ask for. Oh yes a very gracious owner that was available for question and recommendations! Would stay there again in a hart beat!!!

“This is a lovely apartment owned by the most welcoming lady imaginable”

I stayed here with my husband and our friends for a week in August. The photographs do not do this justice. The apartment is spotless, has everything you could need supplied by a wonderful lady who went out of her way to make us welcome and comfortable throughout our stay.
The apartment is in a beautiful peaceful setting within easy reach of a number of interesting places. We traveled to Bologna, Venice and Florence. More locally the town of Modena is lovely too You do need a car to make the most of your stay and reach shops etc, A word of warning,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, if you haven't been to Italy before, most places have traffic restrictions in the town centre with cctv monitoring your progress and hefty fine if you stray into the area! watch out for 'ZTL' areas.
If you don't want to travel then a day by the pool which is set beside the orchard (from which we were welcome to pick fresh fruit) is a relaxing option.
The added touches from Roberta made our stay an excellent experience. Chocolate on each pillow, a freshly baked fruit tart with a bottle of local Lambrusco waiting on the table for us together with a well stocked fridge, plenty of towels and toiletries are just an example of her attention to detail.
Roberta is a lovely lady who is always willing to offer advice about local amenities, directions, weather etc or just have a pleasant chat during the day. She has the gift of being available without being intrusive and we could not praise her highly enough. She even recommended and booked a wonderful restaurant for us to celebrate my birthday. (Osteria 5 Sensi in Modena - lovely food typical of the area)
The apartment is airconditioned and very spacious, the beds are very comfortable - better than many hotels we have stayed in! We all loved the colour changing shower head in one of the bathrooms!
Roberta's directions were excellent - we traveled from Milan but think flying into Bologna would be a much better option.
Roberta's husband Giorgio's hobby is to make the acetico balsamico typical of the area, he was happy to explain this lengthy process to us, showing us his attic room where it is made, he gave us samples which were amazing, the balsamic we buy is nothing like this wonderful concoction.
We would all recommend this holiday apartment very highly and hope to return.

Four of us stayed here in July/August, including two teenagers. The apartment is incredibly comfortable and well appointed, including wifi and bikes. It is set in the country, but within easy reach of shops in Modena and Bologna and the nearby hills.

“The best place I have ever stayed while in Europe - better than hotels!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

The title makes us sound snobbish, but we have traveled from the States to Europe at least a dozen times in the past 10 years and stayed in good hotels, bad hotels, good flats, not so good flats, and bed and breakfasts. Casa delle noci is by far the best place we have ever stayed and Roberta and her family are among the nicest owners we have ever met.

We had a whole house - 3 bedrooms, two baths, huge kitchen and living room. Comfortable, CLEAN, quiet, well-stocked pantry and refrigerator of breakfast foods and snack items, even two bottles of local wine as a welcome gift. A major bonus was the pool which was crystal clear and refreshing especially since it was very hot. Also air conditioning in the bedrooms and living room!

Roberta and her family have the adjacent house and respected our privacy. When we would arrive after a full day of touring the countryside, if she was outside, she would give a smile and wave, but not be intrusive. We typically would chat when we saw her and she would eagerly share ideas and listen to our adventures. We learned a lot.

Roberta went out of her way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The first night as we were relaxing on the patio, she baked us a special bread and served it with local meats and cheeses. It was awesome!

She also booked two tours for us - Parmesan cheese tour was excellent and informative, and the wine tasting - out of this world. Her husband even gave us a tour of his private balsamic vinegar production hidden in their attic!

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND staying with Roberta if you are looking for a comfortable and convenient home base for northern Italy. You will need a car to get to her place, but it is only a 20 minute drive to Modena where you can catch the trains heading west and north, or a 40 minute drive to Bologna for trains east and south.

We found absolutely nothing negative with our stay with Roberta. It was fantastic and should we ever go back to northern Italy, we will definitely book our stay with her!!

This is a truly lovely, idyllic, relaxing place to stay. The photos do not do the rental justice! It's really beautiful, in the middle of an orchard (that you have access to), surrounded by countryside. We particularly loved cycling the country roads with the bikes that Roberta supplies! Roberta also planned three separate tours for us, at a fraction of e cost of the bigger tours advertised online, and we loved every one! There are a few nearby towns and eateries - a couple of which are just lovely; Roberta will recommend. I wouldn't want to have stayed without a car though, but Parma, Modena, Bologna and some beautiful hillside towns are a short ride away.
Roberta really does put a lot of effort into little touches that make this a lovely experience...chocolates on the pillows, a homemade tart and bottles of wine awaiting our arrival, a fridge fully stocked with everything you might want for a full stay's breakfast, and a little extra for a few easy lunches... It was also lovely to see where they made their own balsamic.
If there wasn't so much of the world to see, we'd be back here in a shot. Highly recommend!
