|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Bright, recently renovated second-floor attic room, in a street closed off to cars. The bedrooms are quiet and overlook gardens. 2 double bedrooms, large living room with dining area, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with double washbasin and comfortable shower enclosure, and a terrace with a view over the traditional roofs of the Medieval city. A third bedroom with private bathroom on the lower floor is available. The house is situated in the area built by Nicolò II, in the sixteenth century it was shown on the map which reproduced the layout of the city’s buildings as the “House of the Knight Taino degli Obizi.” A study of eighteenth-century documents in the Municipal Archives shows that a room of the house in question was used as an inn, called “Naso di legno” (Wooden Nose). Piazza Duomo and the Castello Estense are just a five-minute walk away.Guests can also visit the Palazzo Schifanoia and the Ludovico il Moro Archaeology Museum, or stroll through the streets of the Jewish Ghetto
My husband and I stayed at Bruno's and Paola's rentals with my cousin and his wife as well as our son and daughter-in-law. We rented the upstairs apartment with two bedrooms and the downstairs bedroom and private bath. Both are well kept, well stocked, and very clean. Bruno and Paola were excellent hosts, explaining all the conveniences and provided a beautiful basket of fruit, juices, and coffee. They even allowed us to wash our clothes before our departure. If you need a place to park, Bruno can reserve a spot for you. The location is a very short distance to the square and castle. The only downside was the 2-bedroom apartment is up two flights of stairs and the additional bedroom and bath are on the ground floor completely separate from the apartment. We didn't have any issues, but keep that in mind if traveling with kids.
Thank you, Bruno and Paola for our pleasant stay!
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.
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.
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!

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
"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.
Ferrara is in a strategic geographical position, near other cities of great historical and artistic interest: by train, Bologna is just twenty minutes away, Venice and Florence an hour, and Rome two hours and fifty minutes, while Mantua can be reached in an hour by car, and Ravenna in three quarters of an hour.
