We stayed there in late September and had an amazing time! Yes, it's not "plush", it's a fully functioning farm in the foothills (complete with cats and chickens), but Giuseppina is so incredibly gracious and accommodating. We can't wait to go back!
There a lots of things to do in the area. Modena is just down the hill and the area is filled with parmigiano dairies and balsamic vinegar farms.
Be SURE to have dinner there. We had booked dinner our first night wanting it to be easy as we settled into the area. We ended up having all 3 dinners there. My Dad has some health issues that required us to eat by 6PM and Giuseppina had no issue accommodating us. I made a photo book from our trip and I think a good 12-15 of the photos in the book are just of the food, the kitchen, making the pasta, etc.. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary there, and she surprised us with a small cake after dinner. She even welcomed us into her kitchen to watch her make the incredible pastas. I grew up making gnocchi, but she whipped out gnocchi for the 4 of us literally in about 5 minutes, from a pile of cooked potatoes and flour to finished pasta magic. Wow!
We had a wonderful time at Giuseppina's farmhouse. We didn't have much in the way of expectations, but it blew us away. The farm is nestled in the mountains, with stunning views in every direction. There is a ton to do in the area, such as hiking and many types of food tourism (cheese, ham, balsamic vinegar). Mainly though we want to praise Giuseppina's cooking - everything she made for us was amazing, and all of it homemade. For dinner - homemade pasta and sauce, meat (one night a chicken from the farm cooked perfectly), vegetables, several types of homemade bread, and fresh fruit. The second night they gave us parmesan cheese with 30 year old balsamic for dessert. Breakfast was equally amazing - homemade jams and bread, cheese and ham, and more fruit! Another thing - we hadn't made much in the way of plans, but we wanted to go to a dairy farm to see how parmesan cheese is made. After we failed at making a tour, Giuseppina called the factory where she buys her cheese and set up a private tour for us. Awesome!! Zero complaints about this place, would highly recommend. Can't wait to go back!
The Bauernhif is a bit out of the way in the mountains behind Maranello. The decor is simple, rustic but very clean. It has W-LAN and TV in the room. The hosts are incredibly eager to make their stay as comfortable as possible. We were able to help make pasta and ate together with the family. That's how you imagine Italian hospitality! The food was very tasty and just great. A real recommendation for those who are looking for the original Italy away from hotels. Thanks also to Marianne who translated
