 “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 Sea.
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 farm and entire valley are dominated by the Medieval Pallaviciniana tower (reason why the farm takes the name), built ca. 1300, and other stone constructions dot the landscape which is divided into arable, meadow and pasture land and some forest. In short, a place out of time addressed to the practicality of modern farming and traditional Emilian hospitality.

Food and beverages are provided from our own produce, which you can also buy taking a little of your idyllic stays back home with you.

Our many rooms (dining room, living rooms and bedrooms) ensure privacy and relaxation, and the close relationship with the family make satisfaction almost guaranteed.
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.
