About this listing

We offer a unique experience in a medieval tower maintained in all its beauty and immersed in the nature. Beams and stone walls built in the 17th century. The garden, the fauna and the streams are waiting for you here.

The space

The accommodation is located in the ancient medieval village of Valle. In the heart of the Apennine between Tuscany and Emilia, very close to Modena and Maranello, this ancient stone Tower has been restored respecting the traditional local architecture. Our guests can fully enjoy the pleasure of a sunny summer day and fall asleep in a cool and comfortable bed at night. Nearby is the village of Serramazzoni which offers many services such as banks, markets, pharmacy, handicraft shops, very quiet areas, a swimming pool, a tennis court, an adventure park for adults and children and other sports facilities. Near the castle of Monfestino, there is a deltaplan launch field that offers the opportunity for breathtaking flights with views of the beautiful mountains of the Apennine and its wonderful landscapes. There are many services for hiking and mountain biking in stunning environments, such as the Woods of the Bucamante Falls. Guests can also visit Maranello 15 minutes away (Museo Ferrari F1), Sassuolo with a beautiful spa (Salvarola Terme), the beautiful castle of Vignola where you can visit the interior, the Balsamic Vinegar Museum in Spilamberto or the Ancient Rose Museum less than 10 minutes away. The Sassi National Park of Roccamalatina is a favorite stop on a beautiful sunny day for lovers of breathtaking views and hiking trails. We are also in the heart of the famous traditional cuisine of Emilia-Romagna with its production of Balsamic vinegar and wine known all over the world. Taking two steps to the village you can find yourself at the foot of an ancient 1300dc castle, or enjoy a great traditional meal served in the restaurants Valle and La Balugola that are known throughout the area for quality and the original menu Which decays the Emilian tradition. “Tigelle”, “crescentine”, fried dumplings and excellent bunny rabbit are some of the local specialties. All the surrounding area offers high quality food at reasonable prices. The Ancient Tower is a perfect and incomparable accommodation for a holiday in the sunny Italian countryside, following the ancient rhythms of nature to achieve full peace and quietness. Your holiday in the Ancient Tower will be a unique experience where history, nature and gastronomy meet, and then leave you home with unforgettable memories.

Karina's apartment was very clean and is really interesting. The location is great as well and the two restaurants within walking distance are enhancing the local experience. The place is great for families or couples that are looking for a relaxing time. We wish we stayed longer and we are strongly considering to go again! In case it's not clear we recommend :)

Karina's medieval tower was absolutely what we needed- secluded, quiet, calm. After traveling through a few major Italian cities (Milan and Venice) we were relieved to drive through the hills and see such gorgeous countryside. The surrounding area is stunning- rolling hills and lovely vistas at every turn! I highly recommend stopping by some of the smaller grocers in Saramazzoni- about a 10 minute drive away, stock up on some wine and provisions because you won't want to leave this sweet tower. The tower itself is clean, well-kept, well-stocked with towels, linens, a washer, TV, internet, all of it works great. The AC had a brief breakdown, but Karina was there bright and early to work out the kinks and we were forever grateful! We stayed for 3 nights and I wish we had stayed a whole week. There is a restaurant within walking distance that served us possibly the best meal of our entire trip- Ristorante Balugola. It was unbelievable- Karina recommended it to us and she was spot on! All in all, Karina was a lovely, accommodating host who made sure we had everything we needed.

This place was incredible!! It was *huge* (beyond my expectations), charming, and immaculately restored. My family and I were super impressed with the quality details -- it didn't feel like a rushed rental renovation like other places I've stayed. The stairs are a little steep so maybe not the best for children or people with mobility issues, but overall I'd highly recommend the space. The location felt a little further from Maranello than I'd expected, but the drive through the hills was breathtaking. Even more importantly, the restaurant just a three minute stroll down the road was WELL worth any distance, even from Modena! We expected a neighborhood trattoria and it was an absolute highlight of our whole trip -- a castle turned full service restaurant, packed with people who drove in from all over for the incredible lardo, pasta, and local delicacies, with incredible views and elegant but not at all stuffy ambiance.
