Lorena was a great host and we enjoyed our stay in her spacious and spotlessly clean house. Good pool.

I don't think you'll find a better Airbnb in the whole of Italy, incredible. The villa itself has been beautifully renovated, lots of character, all the facilities you need and great coffee to boot. The gardens are stunning and very well maintained along with the pool. What really makes this place though is the hospitality of Lorena and her family (Cumbre and Dream included). Very generous and never intrusive, from a tour of the Balsamic Vinegar factory to pizza lessons and homemade tomato sauce. It was a real privilege, we didn't want to leave. We cannot recommend Old Black Balsamic highly enough, such a great end to our family Italian holiday.

Lorena's house is perfect! Nice, airy, lots of light coming in, high ceilings and large windows. The kitchen is well equipped, nice towels, efficient fans ( important on a 38c heat!). There is a lovely outside area for having a nice meal over a glass of local wine. Lorena was an excellent host. She lives next door and we had nice chats and privacy at the same time.

After a long day of driving from Rome, we arrived at Old Balsalmic with great surprise of how modern and large the place was. Lorena and her daughter Ellie were such amazing and helpful hosts and were always available to help in any way and make our stay extremely comfortable. You definitely need a car, however you are located right between Bologna and Moderna and everything was only a drive away through stunning countryside and once home of an afternoon, it was so pleasant to use the large and beautiful pool, especially as we had kids and the weather was very hot in July. We utilized all rooms in the house and everything was neat and tidy and the kitchen full of utensils and cooking appliances to make it a homely stay. We were so thankful that Lorena had gone out of her way to provide us breakfast and essentials as well as a yummy bottle of procesco. If we are ever in the area again, this will no doubt be our place to stay. Just a warning to take some insect repeliant as outside the property and around the area the mosquitoes are very friendly. Also a special mention to Lorena again for being such a special host, our kids got quite sick from all the traveling and she was quick to be on the phone calling around for doctors and medical help. You must also try her balsamic vinegar she makes on site. It really is delicious and she is able to show you how she makes it should you want a viewing.

Lorena and family are wonderful hosts, the villa is located in the peaceful countryside, but not far from a village. We enjoyed our days at Old Black.

First of all, the hosts are wonderful! They live on the property in the adjoining unit, and were always happy to help us if we had a question on where to go or what to do. They also gave us a tour of their balsamic vinegar production. Amazing! My kids loved the pool, and playing with the friendly dogs. The location is great, with access to the cities of Modena and Bologna, as well as the regional parks nearby for nature walks. The nearest town is the small town of Spillamberto - make sure to check out the gelateria! Would definitely recommend!

Hi everybody!
This is officially the account of Lorena, but it's run and managed from the whole family. We did not hack mum's profile but we are doing this thing together. Specified this, let's start!
We are Costa's family: Lorena (mum), Marco (dad), Eleonora, Simone and Dream, a 6 y.o Golden Retriever that is part of our family and considered as the third brother.
We are an italian family that travelled (and mean to travel waaay more) around the world that now feel the need to show the beauties of its country all around. Travel is not just about the places but it is also about the people that you meet; a journey without the encounter of other wanderlusts is not a real journey. We are therefore ready to greet you in our house, in our home, and to show you the awesomeness of our Italia, that is hidden in every small town or village.
As every good italian we are keen to meet, warmly greet and speak to other people..why would you miss this chance?

Ciao a tutti! Ufficialmente questo è l'account di Lorena ma viene gesttito da tutta la famiglia. Siamo dunque la famiglia Costa: Lorena (mamma), Marco (papà), Eleonora, Simone e Dream, un Golden Retriever di 6 anni che è a tutti gli effetti parte della nostra famiglia e viene considerato il terzo fratello.
Abbiamo girovagato per il mondo (e speriamo di viaggiare ancora di più!) ma sentiamo anche il bisogno di mostrare a tutti le bellezze del nostro Paese. Siamo convinti che il viaggiare non riguardi solamente i posti che si visitano ma soprattutto le persone si incontrano; un viaggio senza l'incontro di altri giramondo non può certo considerarsi un Viaggio.
Siamo dunque pronti ad accogliervi a casa nostra, oasi di pace nella frenetica vita moderna, e mostrarvi la bellezza della nostra Italia, della nostra regione..una bellezza nascosta in ogni piccolo paese, se lo si osserva con gli occhi giusti.
