We just spent 4 days at Antica Torre. A family run agriturismo serving local dishes. Beautiful, lush setting on the outskirts of Salsomaggiore, a provincial town known for it's many wellness centres and thermal springs. The town is charming and worth a visit. The remaining countryside has many castles and in the fall is quiet and hosts few tourists. The... More

Spent 2 nights here on honeymoon back in June. It is set pretty much in the middle of nowhere, which was very much the aim. The venue has a real barn type feel to it, with varying rooms in different buildings. Our room was very spacious, with a living room tied next to it. Right away we were made to... More

This place is a real discovery. High up in the hills outside of Salsomaggiore Terme, not far from Parma, the family are extremely welcoming and the agriturismo is set in a number of well restored buidlings. Antica Torre is located in the region of Italy which lays claim to having the best cuisine in Italy and we did have some... More

Me and my boyfriend spend 6 days in this lovely place and we hope to come back soon. The location is very nice, up on the hill. The hosts are the most generous and one of the kindest people we met till now :). Dinner is absolutely delicious, Vanda is very passionate and the dishes are all from the region... More

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As all people mentioned before: Rooms are large and comfortable, although a little bit outdated.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.
