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.

A perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Spacious, airy, and comfortable stay in the countryside!

  • 5 of 5

It's been a hot summer traveling all over Italy and it's quite refreshing to be in at Villa Dacia! We are a family of four, and happy to be relaxing in a comfortable house and yard. Tiziano had aged bull dogs living in the back yard and were friendly and rather quiet to say the least while we relaxed one afternoon at the poolside. It was a short two day stay, but we enjoyed his home centrally located, very close to an alimentari(grocery store -well supplied with cheeses, meats, and wines), a gelateria, and a restaurant. We really appreciated Tiziano efforts in communicating with us - his English was far better than our Italian, so it was easier communicating with him with Google Translate. The house has a great kitchen with a larger than average refrigerator, dishwasher, and washing machine. We had a fan to use but could have used a second fan for the second room. Otherwise, it was a very pleasant stay and would return if we are in the area. Grazie, Tiziano!!

Beautifully renovated Villa

  • 5 of 5

This Villa was beautiful to stay in. The inside was renovated by the owner and had lovely stonework throughout. The master bath had a Turkish Bath with mosaic tiles and finishes that were top of the line. The owner was gracious and our children loved playing in the large fenced in yard. We ate at a great restaurant La Taverna and enjoyed the local gelato shop and bakery that were steps away. The town has a winery nearby that we enjoyed sampling and learning about the wine making process from the owners. The town of Vignola close by had an impressive castle to explore and nice shops and restaurants too. We had a lovely stay here.
