4 nights in fabulous Ferrara

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is truly outstanding. Tastefully decorated ,spotless & furnished to a very high standard with all the facilities anyone requires. The balcony/patio area is perfect for chilling out after a hard days sightseeing. Enrico was the perfect host - always available to answer our queries & offer help & advice when we had a parking issue with the local constabulary! On that note driving & parking in Ferrara can be a bit stressful for the tourist therefore when we return it will be by public transport! The apartment is within walking distance for everything Ferrara has to offer - especially at night - very atmospheric. Would definitely stay here again.

Grazie Enrico.

A wonderful base for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a superb holiday, thanks to Alessandra and her family's lovely welcome and the excellent condition of the apartment. It is spacious, well-furnished and clean. There are excellent facilities in the kitchen and the bathroom and the hugely efficient air-conditioning units were a marvellous boon during the very hot summer of 2015.

The apartment is brilliantly situated in the heart of Ferrara, about 10-15 minutes walk from the Duomo and all the central bars and restaurants. There is a great, cheap pizzeria just up the road and a bakery about 5 minutes away, though the provision of two very good bikes makes getting further afield very easy. Alessandra was also happy to recommend places outside Ferrara, including a lovely restaurant at Lido di Spina, where we could take our dog for a swim in the sea.

On quieter days, we simply stayed on the roof terrace, reading and soaking up the atmosphere of Ferrara. And the apartment couldn't have provided a more relaxing and comfortable environment. We will definitely be returning!

We try to do our best in order to guarantee a good stay in Ferrara, that's the reasons why we provide bicycles (in order to move easily around the city), new furniture and air conditioning in the apartment (to make your stay as confortable as possible) and we organize kitchen facilities (in order to make you feel like at home). But more that this we really like to know new persons coming from all over the world and make them feel good in the beautiful city of Ferrara. A unesco world heritage site that offers relaxing moments as well as international festivals. We hope to see you again in Ferrara!

Wonderful apartment and well located

  • 5 of 5

During the last ten years or so we have stayed in about 25 different apartments in various parts of Italy. Of all of these, this apartment (Casa Giulia) in Ferrara is the best.

It is well located in the medieval sector of the city, but the real winner is the apartment itself. It is very well appointed, super clean, has good light and has made imaginative use of colour in the soft furnishings. Most importantly, everything works and the cupboards are well stocked with everything you could possibly need for preparing food and cooking, and for a generally comfortable stay.

The apartment comes with two bicycles which were a big plus in a city where almost everybody has one. Cycling around the city's walls was a real treat.

The apartment also has an outdoor terrace, perfect for morning breakfast or evening apertivo or dinner.

Alessandra and her husband were very friendly and helpful both before we arrived (answering emailed questions) and during our stay. For us, this apartment was a home away from home and we would have no hesitation in booking it again should we return to Ferrara.

Fabulous apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week in Alessandra's lovely apartment. The apartment has everything one needs for a nice vacation. It was very clean and the rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. The bed is large and very comfortable. Lots of pillows and blankets. Bill loved the kitchen which had a gas stove, dishwasher, proper knives and a large chopping block. It was great to have a balcony where we enjoyed our morning coffee and evening wine. The location is in the heart of the old historical district, and just down the street are shops and restaurants which lead right to the town square so everything is very easy to get to. Everyone bikes all over and Alessandra has bikes that you can borrow.

Alessandra is fluent in English and so nice to chat with too. We feel very lucky to have found such a nice place for a vacation.

Owner's Response: We are happy to host such good guests. We generally try to do our best to make tourists feel comfortable and It seems it works well. The apartment has been furnished with things that people use everyday in their own houses, in order to make them feel at home. We put a particular attention on the kitchen tools, so that tourists can expirience the home made food, if they like it. In any case the apartment is very close to many different restaurants, pizzerias and pubs, where people can eat well at a very reasonable prices. The city of Ferrara offers many attraction in a relaxing mood!

Ci sentiamo a casa

  • 5 of 5

Prima di andare a Ferrara, Alessandra e io ci comunichiamo via e-mail ed è stato tutto molto bene, lei ha spiegato come sarebbe stato fatto l'affitto e il contratto dimostra chiaramente la serietà dei proprietari per mantenere la casa in ordine.

L'appartamento è sorprendente: gli arredi sono tutti moderni e nuovi, non ci manca nulla. Enrico ci ha mostrato tutte le camere e ci ha spiegato come funzionava tutto. Il nostro desiderio era quello di rimanere lì per sempre! Inoltre, Enrico ci ha portato alla stazione nell'ultimo giorno del nostro hosting, che è stato di grande aiuto perchè dovevamo prendere il treno presto (grazie!).

La città di Ferrara è meravigliosa e la proprietà è molto vicina a tutto, quindi la consiglio davvero a tutti coloro che vogliono avere una grande esperienza.

Bel appartement / Nice appartment

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 9 jours dans l'appartement avec nos 2 enfants. L'appartement est assez spacieux, joli, propre et très bien équipé (lave-linge, lave-vaisselle, four...). Nous n'avons pas pu profiter de la terrasse car les températures au mois de Février sont très fraiches sur Ferrara mais à partir du mois de mi-mars, il doit être possible d'y apprécier quelques moments ensoleillés. La grande place de la cathédrale et du chateau se trouve à 10 min à pieds sur voies principalement piétonnes et le Mur, qui fait le tour du centre historique de Ferrara se trouve également à 10min à pied.

Un des points les plus importants pour moi est l'accueil du propriétaire. Il a été très accueillant et très serviable. Il nous a rassuré sur sa disponibilité au cas où nous aurions eu le moindre problème ou question.


We spent 9 days with our 2 children. The appartment was big enough for us, nice, clean and well furnished (dish-washer, washing-machine, oven...). We couldn't enjoy the terrasse because of the low temperature in ferrara in February but from mid of March, you'll probably enjoy some sunny moments there. The main place with the Castle and the Cathedrale is 10 minute walking far from the appartment mainly on pedestrian streets. The wall which is all around the historical centre of Ferrara is also that far.

One of the most important point for me is the way the owner welcome us. We really appreciated.
