An independent country house located on the border between Emilia Romagna and Tuscany within walking distance of the local village. This charming property benefits from a beautiful private garden with several areas to relax in the shade and a private swimming pool with stunning views out across the valley. Tastefully furnished in a country style - this is a great location from which to explore central Italy’s top regions of Emilia Romagna, Tuscany and Umbria. Public tennis court only 300 metres from the villa. At this altitude, the nights are always cool so air conditioning is not necessary, but the owner can provide fans upon request.
Located near the south eastern corner of Italy's Emilia-Romagna region, Torre Tredozio enjoys a hilltop position amid the rolling green landscape bordering the Foresti Casentinesi, a national park extending southward into Tuscany. In fact, this property was at one time in Tuscany!
Torre Tredozio is an ancient farm tower belonging to a local noble family who still lives in the nearby Palazzo Fantini, just 1 km away. The magical garden surrounding the Palazzo, a 17th century residence, is a member of the association of Grandi Giardini Italiani (Great Italian Gardens) and is open to the public for tours, and for courtyard concerts during the summer and for weddings.
You will find the village of Tredozio is deliciously quiet, yet it harbours a number of inviting restaurants. A pleasant ten minute walk takes you from the tower to the village centre. Besides its handful of restaurants, Tredozio village has a charming little river running through it. Its shops include a couple of grocers, an excellent fresh produce shop, coffee bars, a butcher’s, a chemist’s, a bank with ATM, and a post office. In addition there is a small information point, from which, in summer months, you can rent mountain bikes - to be booked in advance - and a bus service offering buses to Faenza and Forlì. Last but not least there is Tennis Club at only 5 minutes’ walk from Torre Tredozio.
