Torre Fantini is a charming independent country house located on the border between Emilia Romagna and Tuscany, in the ancient village of Tredozio. 

This is a delightful rural retreat that feels worlds away from the stress and noisy chaos of modern life, yet is easily accessible from nearby towns large and small. Torre Fantini has recently been lovingly and tastefully restored in full respect of traditional materials and methods. The tower still bears its original white and pink colors and a jaunty black rooster, the main element of the family coat of arms, keeps watch over the courtyard from his perch on the tower’s facade. 

There are three charming guest rooms, each with its own private bathroom. All are furnished in an understatedly elegant country style, and the interiors at Torre Fantini highlight the original rustic qualities of the building. Torre Fantini is surrounded by an extensive private outdoor area which teems with flowers, both cultivated and wild, in every season. In this area there is the swimming pool with its glorious views, and dotted about the grounds you will find a number of spots for sitting with your book and your glass of wine as you unwind and soak in the peace and beauty that surround you.
