For such a well visited country Italy sure does have some hidden gems.
Take the Locanda del Feudo, for instance, a real place of discovery which values tradition, charm, fine cuisine and wine above all else.
Above all else is actually an apt word, for as you reach Castelvetro, an ancient Etruscan Village, you can’t miss the Locanda del Feudo, an old elevated fortress occupying a splendid position within the city walls of the town. If its old world refinement you want this is the place, as history and fine architecture (Castelvetro is a delight) abound here
Yet there are also plenty of modern comforts to be had at the Locanda - six flawlessly decorated suites with high speed Internet connection, satellite TV and a host of other little up to date goodies, so old world need not mean no worldly goods.
Then, of course, there’s the restaurant and wine cellar which serves up wonderful regional dishes. So simply take in the beauty of the whole area, enjoy a lambrusco with a fine meal and soak in the atmosphere of the Locanda del Feudo and Castelvetro.
Thank you to Secretplaces for finding us this charming place in Castelvetro. Our rooms,a suite called Margherita,were wonderful and we really appreciated the lift,Lots of little touches which created the special atmosphere.
Of course the location right in the middle of the pedestrianised hill town is perfect,especially as Andrea our host looked after our car.
The food prepared by Andreas brother Roberto as Chef was excellent as was the recommended wine,the breakfast with homemade jams and cakes,and coffee relaxing outside watching the passing parade.
And Andreas perfect service, attentive but never intrusive.

A very comfortable suite of rooms, and really accommodating owners. Didn't eat dinner there, but judging by the breakfast, it would have been fab.

We had a most memorable stay in Locanda del Feudo in Castelvetro. The Locanda is located in a small hilltown that is full of charm and spectacular views! Our suite was roomy and very clean, the food executed by chef Roberto was quite amazing. His bolognese dish was incredible, nothing like we have ever tasted before. This restaurant is not to be missed if you are in Castelvetro di Modena, you will not be disappointed.
Best of all, we were very impressed with the friendliness of the owners, chef Roberto and his brother Andrea.
Grazie mille a voi, Andrea e Roberto!
