The Azienda Agricola Il Gaidello is a vast agricultural estate situated in the fertile Po River valley (the Pianura Padana) just outside the town of Castelfranco Emilia.

The farm uses organic cultivation methods that respect both land and environment to obtain products of superior quality.

Il Gaidello is also an Agriturist Farm, which is called Villa Gaidello. The complex of 250-year-old farm houses is located in an oasis of tranquility.

During the last thirty years, Paola Bini and her sisters have brought the long neglected land and buildings back to their original beauty and productivity.

Maintaining the good taste of the past, the Bini Sisters guarantee a kind welcome as the doors of the family home, or Casa Padronale, open to add a new dimension of hospitality in the kitchen and for overnight lodging.


Villa Gaidello has prepared several guest apartments for you to enjoy.

The view from the windows of all the apartments offer a peaceful and lovely view of the surrounding rural areas.

Some of our apartments have fireplaces and satellite TV. We have a phone available in our restaurant for public use, but not in the apartments or rooms.

Part of the Casa Padronale has been divided into three complete apartments, each named after one of the Bini sisters.

The Adriana Lc:

The Adriana Lc (Stalletta) apartment is located where the original stable once was. It uses the manger area for the main bedroom and has open beam ceilings throughout.

Paola Giovanna:

In the Paola Giovanna (Sud) apartment, beautiful antiques and rich colors combine in serene elegance.

Chiara Maria:

Open space, high ceilings and the ambience in the Chiara Maria (Nord) apartment create a warm atmoshpere of time past. The apartments, furnished with 1800s antiques, show the local artists' crafts and handwork, from the hand decorated walls to the wrought iron sconces.

The Gaianello Guesthouse:

In addition, several of the farmhouses on the Gaidello estate have been restored and converted into apartments for guests. The Gaianello guesthouse is divided into three spacious apartments, with the original wood beam and terracotta ceilings and with modern kitchenettes that are ideal for personalized cooking lessons.

Gaianello is also ideal as a "depandance" for companies who choose to offer hospitality to their employees in the midst of green and peaceful surroundings.


The Azienda Agricola Il Gaidello is situated in the Po River valley (the Pianura Padana), one of Europe's most fertile regions. Il Gaidello has been a working organic farm since the 1970's.

The fields around the family estate produce rich red tomatoes used in the Gaidello's pasta sauces, onions for pickling in balsamic vinegar that is a leading product of this region, walnuts used to make the walnut liquor nocino (their 'elixir for long life'), and rows of moscato grapes for the guests to pick and eat.

Near the small lake by the Casa Padronale, there is a small orchard of wild fruit trees. The best of these fruits and other local fruit are conserved in glass jars to be offered to the guests during the winter.

When not producing onions or tomatoes, the fields are planted with either wheat or alfalfa, following natural crop rotation methods.


The restaurant at Villa Gaidello is a converted stable, where guests can enjoy delicious food prepared by the rezdore (skilled country women).

Paola Bini closely supervises the cooking, and personally cuts the prosciutto and adds finishing touches to every dish. Most of the meals are served family style at massive wooden tables.

Paola's menus are dictated by her ability to use the freshest available local provisions combined with produce grown and prepared on her farm.

Meals are accompanied with light and bubbling local wines, and topped off with her nocino walnut liquor.

Villa Gaidello can also be exclusively reserved for small private groups or senior executive meetings. The four dining rooms can serve up to eighty persons.

The restaurant is open Tuesday through Sunday afternoon, with the exception of the month of August. Sunday evenings and Mondays the restaurant is closed. Reservations are required for the restaurant.


Several initiatives have flourished with the intent of increasing our guests' experience of the artisan lifestyle, all within the healthful and pleasant environment we offer at il Gaidello.

We are convinced that these initiatives are enjoyable and help our guests forget the stress of modern life and reconcile them with the pleasures of a simpler life.

We offer:

Visits to the Azienda Agricola when possible, with practical lessons in how we produce our products (e.g., preservation of fruit and vegetables, making of the walnut liquor nocino, and making of balsamic vinegar). Of course, this is seasonal and done during the appropriate time of year.

Our guests, if they desire and when possible, can watch and assist in the preparation of our genuine and typical meals.

Visits to other establishments that produce typical regional foods, such as caseifici (where Parmesan cheese is made) and acetaie (where balsamic vinegar is made).


Il Giadello is found in an area with a continental climate, with four distinct seasons: beautiful wild flowers in the Spring, golden waves of grain at the end of Summer, mature grapes and rich colors in Autumn, and snow sometimes in Winter.

Villa Gaidello is situated outside of the town of Castelfranco Emilia on the Via Emilia (State Highway 9), between Modena and Bologna. You can reach Villa Gaidello:

  • by train, to Castelfranco Emilia;
  • by car, taking the Via Emilia (State Highway 9);
