For those who like the tranquility of being out in the countryside Antica Torre is nicely located only a few kilometers from Salsomaggiore Terme, yet with the quiet and expansive views of being in a rural location. Our room was very large with antique furniture - large ornate bed and dressers, and a nice view of the surrounding countryside. Although... More

This family does everything with love! You will really enjoy the hospitality and the environment! The only thing what should be improved is the quality of the mattresses! That would be the cream on the pudding! We would really want to return to this place! The family also cooks with local products which is perfect! Don't hesitate, just visit this... More

A wonderful, nice Italian family runs this place, and they are doing an excellent job. For three friends without a driver's license, it was a little hassle to get there, but this was taxi money WELL spent. The air is fresh, and the swimming pool seriously refreshing in July. They truly care about their guests, serve delicious food, and the... More

As all people mentioned before: Rooms are large and comfortable, although a little bit outdated. However, this is not disturbing since you quickly feel like part of the family. They prepare many of the food themselves and you get to know a culinary round trip through various regions of the Emilia-Romagna including stories and background knowledge how the food is... More

We unfortunately had only 2 nights at this lovely B&B. This is a stunning property. Our hosts were warm and charming and Vanda's cooking was superb. We ate in both nights; the meals were delicious and plentiful and Emmanuel was very informative about the produce of the farm, the wines that can be purchased (also delicious) with the meal and...

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.

we travelled here for 5 nights in July 2011. Dont follow any GPS guidance - its much easier to find from the town than it seems. Ring if you are lost as we were and the directions were great. Lovely rooms, dark and cool. A great little pool, and a dinky wee breakfast/restaurant with super local cucina tippica. we will... More

This was our first night in Italy. After traveling from Atlanta, battling the roads of central Milano, finding this gem was such a blessing! The owners were so welcoming and their English was superb (much appreciated to dull the culture shock of the first day). The rooms of the tower were a special treat. We would have been comfortable in... More

We spent 3 days in the lovely Antica Torre. It was our first time staying at an agriturismo and we didn't know what to expect on our stay at the farm. It was great! The Pavesi family were wonderful hosts. Admiral Nelson, the dog, was good fun. We had dinner at the farm 2 of the 3 nights and both... More

We had an excellent stay at Antica Torre. The farm is pleasant, the proprietors friendly and helpful, and our room was large and beautifully furnished. We had dinner in their outdoor dining area both nights of our stay, two terrific meals. All of the food is grown on their premises or in the area. Salsomaggiore Terme is a pleasant enough... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. Guests are free to indulge, dedicating yourself to health and wellbeing. ... more   less
