About Tiziano Consoli
My name is Tiziano Consoli. I was born on April 25th, 1971. I am a sculptor, mosaicist, marble worker for 25 years, and independent craftsman. My family and I, composed of my son Elia and Tiziana, have decided to run this activity after two years of considering it. We are convinced and hope that you can have wonderful experiences, which are offered by this house and region.
Tiziano Consoli purchased this Barn in 2005
Why Tiziano Consoli chose Guiglia
I keep this bedroom suitable to gladden the holiday of those looking for history, relaxation, food, wine, and nature.
What makes this Barn unique
This house has been the dream of my life. After I saw it when it had been offered, I immediately understood, thanks to my profession, what the house hid inside its plasters and what I could do to make it shine like in the past. In fact, after having bought it in 2005, I divided my time between my job in the quarries around Italy and abroad, and my free time, which I completely spent starting and carrying out the renovation by myself. This is one of the most antique houses of the country, with hand-made architraves, carved with Roman numbers dating back from 1540. In this house, I have left my heart because everything bears my signature and my work: from the doors to the sandblasting of stone to the demolition of the main walls to expand the doors, to the hand sculpted wash basin made by myself, to the mosaic of the steam bath and the built-in kitchen. Everything has been decorated with aged travertine with inserted decorations, the design of the bathrooms and the performance of the marble positions, the treatment of the marble, and all in this house. Everything has been designed and done by myself.

Dave è veramente una persona speciale assieme alla sua famiglia solo puliti educati e rispettosi delle regole Mi raccomando tutti questi persone stupende
The apartment is beautiful and walking distance to restaurants in Guiglia.
The apartment lives up to expectations from the VRBO photos and description. Tiziano was a good host, providing bottled water, coffee and juice. He was helpful setting up a winery tour and tasting. His two dogs became our fast friends. I highly recommend Villa Dacia. Be ready for adventure driving around the area!
Thanks you are beautiful people It was a pleasure to welcome you Thank you so much I hope to see you soon
The Villa is spacious, very well equipped and absolutely charming.
The villa is set in it's own substantial garden (though shared with a couple of friendly boxer dogs!!). A lot of thought has gone into the design of the interior of the house, with lots of imaginative details. It is spacious, well laid out, and whilst not benefitting from air con, very light and airy. We loved it.
Tiziano is a lovely guy who is very keen to ensure you have an enjoyable stay (even arriving with an armful of zuchini one evening).
The village has a couple of food shops, a couple of restaurants, a ice cream parlour and a bank - pretty much everything you need.
Several well marked walks into the Regional Park start in the village enabling you to walk from the door.
We loved this place!
This villa met all of our expectations and beyond. The villa has everything we wanted. The property has been lovingly restored by the owner with every possible convenience. It is centrally located in Emilia-Romano but a bit off the beaten track. That said, there is an outstanding restaurant about 50 paces away. While we spoke no Italian and most of the villagers spoke little to no English, we were always able to communicate. The owner Tiziano and the rest of the village could not have been more hospitable and welcoming. We will return to Guiglia in the future and we will stay at this property.
A perfect place!
Two retired couples in their 60's and 70's stayed for two weeks in this lovely place. Each bedroom had it''s own bathroom and because the kitchen and living area were in between, the bedrooms were very private. We arrived on a chilly and wet Monday afternoon and Tiziano welcomed us with a fire in the hearth and a platter of salami, cheese and bottle of wine! He showed us around and made us feel right at home. Guiglia was a perfect location to explore the area of Emilia Romagna. Modena, Parma, Bologna, Mantova, Verona, all within an easy drive of this small town. Every town from the largest to the smallest has an interesting castle to see. Being out in the country made it easy for hikes especially in the parco régionale dei Sassi di Roccamalatina, a nice diversion from sight seeing in cities. Tiziano set up tours for us at a Parmesan cheese factory, a salami museum, and a balsamic vinegar museum. Guiglia itself has three restaurants which were great, especially Lanterna. There are small grocery stores and bakeries, pizza shops, and coffee shops all within a few meters of the apartment. The apartment itself is beautiful and well appointed, and comfortable. Both bedrooms and bathrooms were beautiful and private. There was also a huge garden, but we were always on the go so we only relaxed there one late afternoon. Tiziano has two wonderful dogs who are sweet and well behaved. We have been renting apartments in Europe since 1985, and this place has been one of our favorites. Thank you Tiziano for your hospitality!
Beautiful mountaintop retreat
We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay at this eclectic one of a kind home. There was a binder with info on all the nearby sights and we made a gorgeous fire in the fireplace. Watched the sun set with Luna and Beatrice, the owners' boxers. Wish we could have stayed longer.
In the near vicinity, it is possible to enjoy guided visits to a vinegar cellar (where the famous Balsamic vinegar is produced), the Sassi di Roccamalatina Regional Park (a protected area dating back from the cretaceous period), the castle of Guiglia built in 1266, and Rocca di Vignola dating back from 1178 (one of the most charming castles of Emilia).
You can visit the dairy farms, where the Parmigiano Reggiano is produced.
You can also go to the family-run slaughterhouses selling ham, mortadella, various Salumi, the well-known cherry of Vignola, the Nocino of Spilamberto, the wine-producing company of San Giovese, Lambrusco, and Cabernet wines. On request, you can taste their productions with home-made cooking.
You will also find the spiral staircase of Palazzo Barozzi, which was an advanced work of engineering for its time.
In Maranello, about 20km away, you can find Museo Ferrari, with its own test-track nearby.
In Modena, you will find the Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari.
Visit the Dome of Modena and the Ghirlandina.
Bologna offers the Tower Asinelli, the Sanctuary of the Madonna of San Luca, and much more.
