Perched on a hilltop and on the border between Emilia Romagna and Tuscany,  this charming country house has a panoramic terrace view of the beautiful green countryside.

This former farm tower has been remodelled in a traditional way; the elegant colour palette, rustic-style furnishings and beamed-ceilings create a homely and welcoming feel, perfect for a relaxing break. Covering 160m², Abete Bianco has five bathrooms in total and sleeps up to six guests in double or twin bedrooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom with a shower and small refrigerator.

The French windows on the ground floor provide the perfect looking glass onto the serene surroundings. From the living room you’ll find a breathtaking view over the valley. The equipped kitchen acts as a social hub with a dining area that also opens out onto the gardens. Climb the exterior stairs to the first floor where you’ll be greeted by a spacious entrance hall, a studio-cum reading room, a double bedroom and two bathrooms. The second floor allows guests to pick between two idyllic views: over the garden and hills from the twin-double bedroom, or over the valley in the second twin-double bedroom.

From the main road, a paved road leads you away from the nearby village to the house, where you will feel whisked away to the quiet countryside. This partially fenced property, surrounded by neighbours’ fields, is a kaleidoscope of green accented with flowery hues. Overlook this effortless view from the swimming pool or the sun beds in the private garden. Choose between dining al fresco under the shade of the pergola or in the quaint one room building which houses a dining area.

Situated on the boarder of Tuscany and Emilia Romagna, this location is an exquisite blend of both cultures - the perfect spot to explore the rich cuisine, the extensive history and a few of their finest vineyards, just 10-25km away! Travel beyond these to see the impressive Byzantine mosaics (50km) or, if you’re feeling a little adventurous visit the stunning waters of the beach near Ravenna (72km away).

Take a 10 minute walk from the beautiful Abete Bianco and you’ll find yourself in the centre of the quiet and endearing village. Not only does this area look picture-perfect with a river running through it but it is also well equipped with everything you might need. This includes restaurants, grocers, shops with fresh produce, coffee bars, butchers, a chemist, a post office and a bank with an ATM. From here you can also find an information point which is open throughout the summer, and a bus service that will take you to nearby cities.

Built on a long history of prosperity, Emilia Romagna exudes an air of fine living with an array of Renaissance palaces and a culinary palette worth writing home about. Truly enjoy the authentic culture of the village with a ceramics workshop, a language or cooking class and the chance to make cheese and wine - activities perfect for couples. You’ll find plenty of opportunities to sample the delicious foods that are home to the area, including lasagne, tortellini, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and aged traditional balsamic vinegar - a taste of the fine dining the area was historically known for. Not only is the village surrounded by undisturbed greenery to explore, but you can also find a golf course 28km away. If it’s the calming blues you’re after, the seaside resorts make for a great day trip, especially if you are visiting in a group.

This Italian region is rich with history and so a visit to nearby cities is a must if you are an art and history lover. A visit to the impressive medieval fortress, about 30km away, is one to add to your holiday itinerary. For those looking to bask in the beauty of northern Italy, you’ll find a bright blaze of mosaics across the cities. A visit to one of the ceramic hotspots, including a world famous museum and production house, is the perfect excuse to get out and explore for the day. When it comes to taking a break, we all know a little retail therapy goes a long way. You won’t have to venture too far for vibrant urban experiences.

Reviews

  • We want to come back next year!

    on 05/07/2023

    To the host,
    It was just a coincidence that we came here. The house in Tuscany that we had booked cancelled us due to Corona.
    But what a happy coincidence it was!

    We loved this house, the pool and the view so much.
    Our 16 years old son spent much week in the little house to play his electric guitar, and the other kids spend their time in and around the pool.

    We haven’t seen much of the surroundings because we hated to leave this beautiful place.

    Thank you for your hospitality; showing us your Palazzo ang garden.
    The cleaning ladies were very nice and we hope to come back here next year!

  • Two fantastic weeks

    on 01/08/2020

    Two fantastic weeks in this beautiful valley where it is so great to discover and appreciate the Italian way of life.
    So many thanks for the quality of your house and the high standards of comfort.
    Hard to leave!
    Special thanks to the host, for your advices, your reactivity and your kindness.
    Ciao e arrivederci!

  • We hope to see you again!

    on 15/07/2020

    To the host,
    We feel very lucky to have met you and stayed in the wonderful house.
    The holiday in your house and surroundings was more than we could ask for.
    Thank you so much for your dedication and professional and truly kind service.
    We hope to see you again.
    Thank you.

  • Fantastic Week!

    on 10/10/2019

    Wow!!! We had a fantastic week and special birthday celebrations here.
    We thank you all for you care, assistance and fantastic home, in an awesome location!

  • Everything was exceptional!

    Created on 20/08/2019

    Overall:
    Our stay at Torre Fantini was outstanding. The house is beautiful, the views amazing, the pool refreshing (it was a warm August) and the village delightful. There is so much to do nearby. We hiked in the forest, visited medieval villages, shopped at local markets, and visited historic cities. Our host, was so thoughtful. She welcomed us with dinner and a bottle of local wine and checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed. She also helped us arrange a hike in the forest with a local guide, provided us with numerous trail maps, and arranged for an amazing tour of a vineyard, village and pottery studio. We waited to do this until the end and wished we had done it earlier!

    Enjoyed Most:
    It's located in a small village. We were the only American tourists there (and didn't see many European tourists either.) The people in the village were very welcoming. Overall, it was a great balance of activities, walks to the village, dinner outside under the starry sky.

    Enjoyed Least:
    Everything was exceptional.

    Surrounding Area:
    The quiet, the agriturismos, the medieval villages, the forests and hikes.

    Nearby Events or Locales:
    The nearest village is an easy 10 minute walk. The next closest town, Modigliana, was larger with a big grocery, market and great fresh pasta store. It was 8 km away.

    Tips or Restaurants:
    Take the tour that the host arranges early in your visit. The guide is free, and is very knowledgeable about the history of the area. We paid for an amazing lunch at a winery. They accommodated vegetarians in our group. The wine tasting accompanied lunch.

    Directions:
    All good.
