Terrific place--even better than the photos show.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in Bruno and Paola's apartment in Ferrara. Every possible comfort was provided --a fruit and wine stocked fridge! Bicycles to borrow! Easy cheap parking with the monks nearby! An amazing apartment with its charming terrace, in the perfect central yet very quite location! And of course lovely hosts who made us feel very much at home. We hope to stay here again.

A true home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Ferrara and this amazing apartment. We arrived this visit via train from Venice with Bruno waiting..no taxi cab or rental car necessary. This space is ultra clean and spacious. The kitchen is stocked with more than the essentials. We visited Ravenna and Bologna on two separate days via train from Ferrara. This location is superb for day trips, and an easy walk back. Of course, Bruno chaperones us to the station with early morning departures. Evening strolls and gelato made this stay magical.

Very special apartment in a very special town....

  • 5 of 5

Wow...where to begin? The 5 star top rating does not adequately convey what a special place Bruno and Paola offer. Perfect location, comfortable, immaculately maintained and the best kited out kitchen and pantry we have ever rented....and we have rented houses and apartments literally all over the world! The owners are professional, kind, very generous, gracious and exceptionally helpful. Bruno directed us the Continental, a nearby, venerable family owned cafe and food speciality shop with a terrifically well edited wine selection. We relied upon their recommendations daily and were always very happy to discover the delicious lesser known wines of the region. Ferrara is ever so slightly off the usual tourist route...which is a real advantage if you are interested in a bit of immersion into Italian life...and Naso Di Legno is the perfect choice. Book early....Bruno and Paola have many fans!

Ciao,

Brian and Gene

Wonderful apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Our six days in Ferrara were wonderful from start to finish.

Bruno and Paola answered my emails promptly before our arrival and Bruno met us at the train station when we arrived and was very thorough in explaining everything to us back at the apartment. They immediately made us feel at home. Bruno and Paola live in the same building and their willingness to assist in any way is a bonus. We took advantage of their offer several times and their assistance was much appreciated.

The apartment was spotless, extremely well-equipped and modern and, if anything, even better than depicted in the photos on the website. Although cold outside the heating was very effective. The kitchen had absolutely everything that one could need and the hosts had kindly left a number of welcome food items for us. The bathroom was modern and the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. There was plenty of space in the family area to relax (as well as storage space for the suitcases) and we had access to English language channels on the television. We also had 4 well-maintained bikes at our disposal which, after some initial trepidation, we made good use of.

The apartment is in an excellent location. It is only a minute or two from a main street and the many shops, cafés and restaurants and yet the historic street in which it is located is wonderfully quiet.

We only wish we had stayed longer, hopefully we will return one day!

Thanks again Bruno and Paola

Bright, spacious apartment in beautiful Ferrara

  • 5 of 5

"Naso di Legno" was exactly as described: bright, airy, fully and generously equipped --even a welcoming bottle of Prosecco! Hosts Bruno and Paola were unfailingly warm and helpful. The apartment is conveniently close to all the sights of historic Ferrara, and to many excellent restaurants. Our favourite was MezzaLuna, a minute's walk away. We enjoyed getting to know Ferrara, and we appreciated its proximity to other centres: Venice, Bologna, and Ravenna to name just three. We would highly recommend this property to visitors to Emilia Romagna.

Wonderful apartment in beautiful Ferrara

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a week in this beautiful apartment and can only echo everything that has already been said. I could live here! The apartment is so well equipped and the fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality, the photographs really are a true representation. The location is superb, right in the heart of things but so peaceful, just a few minutes walk takes you to bars, restaurants, shops and the sights.

Bruno and Paola are such lovely hosts and do everything possible to make you feel welcome, they live in the same building, so it is very handy if you have any queries. We ate out every night, but the kitchen is equipped with every gadget known to man, so would be great for a long term stay. The fully stocked kitchen is a bonus too.

We were lucky enough to stay during the Buskers Festival when the city came alive with performances of music and street theatre, the atmosphere was wonderful. Ferrara itself is a beautiful city and it was easy to get to other places on the train, we loved Ravenna and Bologna, but found it very loud after pedestrianised Ferrara and were glad to get back to the peace! I cannot recommend a stay at Naso di Legno highly enough, we can't wait to return and it will be for 2 weeks next time!

Thank you Bruno and Paola

Owner's Response: Dear guest, it was a pleasure to host you in our apartment. We really care about our guests and try to do our best in order to guarantee a good and relaxing holiday! Leaving in the same building is a guarantee for our guests, so that they can come and ask us if everything is missed or even if they need some information about the city and its amenities. The city of Ferrara offers many things to do for tourists and at the same time is a very quite place to relax and have a rest. We hope to see you soon in Ferrara!
