The agriturismo is nice and quiet, far from the cities. We had our first real rural Italian experience there and was far more than memorable. Although the hosts don't speak much of English we managed to communicate very well. I have to send special thanks to Angelo for going out of his way to help us when my dad locked the key in the car.
Rooms and the building are beautifully decorated and much suited to the surrounding area. We had dinner there for one night which was quite good. You definitely need a car to get there and move around. Finding it was not difficult with our GPS.
Perfect place for a quiet time. Very charming rooms.
Nicoletta is a lovely person and really cares about the wellbeing of her guests. Angelo cooks delicious meals typical of the Emiglia Romagna.
Right in front of the Locanda there are many hiking options, which we can really recommend.
All in all it was a pure revelation!
Loved the place. Bit hard to find. Wonderful food, incredibly friendly service above and beyond. Thank you!
This is an amazing place, breathtaking... you must go... I have no words to express...
I am living in München, and after a exhaustive semester, I could relax. really recharge my batteries in Antica Locanda. I ate wonderful italian food, saw wonderful landscape!! Everything there is made with heart and soul! I really recomend!
My roommate and I stayed for one night at Antica Locanda and we loved every minute of it! The area was beautiful-snowcapped mountains all around. Angelo was so sweet and picked us up at the Vignola train station. Like everyone says, the food was the best I had in all of Italy. Angelo's wife taught us how to play Italian cards, and we had fun climbing up the huge mountain right outside where you can get an amazing view. We met Ricardo and had so much fun learning some Italian words, and teaching some english slang! Would go back in a heart beat! OH. and literally the best parmesan you'll ever have. Much love.
If you want to have a true rural experience in Emilia-Romagna region in the hills, this is something you don't want to miss. Although Monica actually doesn't stay in Montalbano and we didn't actually met her, Angelo, the owner is a very good host and chef. His rich life experience will make your journey much pleasant. The location is very close to Florence (1hour and a half), Bologna (45 minutes) and Modena (45 minutes). I recommend going to Maranello for Ferrari Museum as well.
Wi-fi worked well.
Thank you Angelo!
very nice to see Nicoletta and Angelo...and the goats. again..sorry to miss you monica...thanks again for a great lunch and your company...love the place it is a complete remedy after the craziness of a city...complete peace and quiet and good food and for nature lovers the woods are spectacular...this is my third year back to this space...love it ..thanks again Nicoletta and Angelo and Monica.
Wonderful countryside retreat! There are some really nice hiking paths right outside the house, I wish I had brought some better shoes. The house itself is stunning, some 500 years old, if i understood correctly. Free ride to and from the nearest train station, wonderful service.
I wish i just spoke a little Italian!
Un edificio storico, camere con vista bellissima, la pace (stanza dell'aria).
