Perfect location for a Northern Italian Holiday

  • 5 of 5

my wife and I are celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary by traveling through Europe for 2 months. One of those months was to explore Northern Italy. We discovered the Ferrara area and Ombretta's apartment on May 13th and remained there for the month. A clean and fresh 2 bedroom , 1.5 bathroom two story apartment with private entrance. A perfect jumping off point for our many daily destinations whether it be by car or train since Ferrara is on the main Bologna line and reached many interesting destinations in less than 1.5 hours. The apartment is only 5-10 minutes from the motorway as well. Ferrara quickly became our favorite city ; history is great and the city fathers have embraced a modern way to dispense all the history you want to absorb without tainting the product. Our landlord Ombretta is a very lovely and caring person and was helpful with many of her pearls of wisdom. The farm house sits in a town called San Martino , a very small town but with all you could need to enjoy the Italian country life. We visited 23 towns in our one month stay in Italy; I would return to Ferrara and Ombretta's apartment if we ever saw fit to visit this area again.

You made a very good description of the apartment , the village of S.Martino and the city of Ferrara that offers many attractions in a relaxing mood! But you didn't forget to write how it is easy to reach, from here, many other interesting destinations. A perfect review. Thank you. Ombretta

Lovely farmhouse apartment near Ferrara

  • 5 of 5

I'm here in Italy for work and I spent a weekend in this apartment in a restored farmhouse close to the A13 motorway exit. I chose to come here because I needed plenty of parking space for my van. Not knowing the area, my choice was a lucky one, not only because of the strategic position for getting to nearby towns quickly and easily, but also for the for the warm and welcoming atmosphere in the spacious, quiet and tastefully furnished apartment with a very well equipped kitchen – this was important for me because I suffer from food allergies and have to cook my own meals, whereas my travelling companions were able to eat at an excellent restaurant nearby. There's a big garden – lovely in the winter too – with fine tall trees, and I can imagine how cool this place will be in the summer, with a barbecue and the possibility to eat outdoors under the vine pergola. I think you can bake bread too, in a traditional oven.... I shall certainly be back for a real holiday – I think my kids will love it here! And Ferrara, a beautiful Renaissance town, is just a few minutes away.

Casa di grande fascino in palazzo d'epoca

  • 5 of 5

L'appartamento è bellissimo, dotato di tutti i confort(compreso il garage), in pieno centro e in un prestigioso palazzo rinascimentale di B.Rossetti. La padrona di casa è di una gentilezza squisita e Ferrara è una città affascinante e a misura d'uomo.E' stata veramente una bellissima vacanza da ripetere.

Excellent endroit

  • 5 of 5

Vous avons passé 12 excellents jours à l'Acero Rosso en gîte. La maison est sympa et tranquille, vaste et confortable avec un beau jardin. La rénovation de cette maison ancienne a été faite avec goût. Ombretta la propriétaire est très sympa et parle bien français, elle a de précieux conseils pour les visites dans la région. La situation près de Ferrara est très appréciable car entre 40 min et 1h de route de Bologne, Ravenne, Padoue, Mantoue, Venise et 1h30 de Florence! La mer à Comachio est très agréable et facilement accessible, on y mange des poissons grillés ou frit dans les friggitoria. Le village de Comachio est à lui seul un bel endroit où passer la soirée. En résumé ce gite est un super plan!
