We were met on arrival by Ombretta the apartment owner and made very welcome. Ombretta explained the essential workings in the apartment, and showed us where the supermarket was. Ferrara is the perfect place to stay and well located to travel by train to Bolognia, Florence, Venice etc, and return in the evening to the peace of Ferrara. The history, it's residents, restaurants and shopping are delightful. The apartment is close to the centre and if you wish to use a bicycle as a mode of transport it is the perfect place to do so. The apartment is in a very old building and on the top floor, so be prepared for the climb, but very well worth it. The apartment is well
equipped and very spacious. I look forward to a return visit. Transport direct from Bolognia Airport to Ferrara Castle is available and regular. Very good value.
We were enchanted with the site especially the gorgeous courtyard. The apartment was clean and in good condition. Good for a family with one or two children - one room is actually the loft area upstairs so is better for adults or older children as there is no door or separating wall. Lovely grassy track across the street, clearly an ancient arena, and great gelato and pizza right downstairs. Large park right around the corner and many wonderful historic sights in short walking distance. Owner very friendly and accommodating.
We stayed in the apartment for 7 days in June, 2013. The owner Ombretta Fabri met us at the apartment and was friendly and helpful. The apartment is spacious, clean and charming, on the top floor of a 15th century palazzo. The apartment itself is very quiet but the front portico of the palazzo is hopping with a bar, pizza and ice cream shops, and a mini-mart. Ferrara was wonderful and a great location from which to explore the area; we took easy day trips to Bologna, Ravenna and Commachio. We had a car with us so the fact that Ombretta has a garage was important. We used the bicycles that came with the apartment for exploring Ferrara. Grocery store was a 10 minute walk (5 minute bike ride) from the apartment. Turns out the wireless internet was actually provided by the town of Ferrara, and although we signed up for it at town hall we were never able to make it work. We recommend this apartment and would stay there again.
Je suis très satisfait du séjour passé à ferrare dans cet appartement, situé dans un secteur calme du centre - ville. L'appartement est spacieux, fonctionnel. Il est, de surcroît très bien situé, proche des commerces (restaurants, bars, épicerie, boucherie et boulangerie) et des espaces verts (chartreuse, place de l'arioste, remparts) et plusieurs musées (palais des diamants notamment). Une bonne adresse !
We have spent four wonderful days in November 2011 in Ombretta Fabbri's comfortable apartment. The apartment is spacious, beautifully decorated, equipped with all you may need and right in the city centre. And we had a chance to live in a Renaissance palace! Ombretta was very kind and helpful - a perfect guest. We're looking forward to the day when we can return.
The two bedroom accommodation was charming and perfect for ourselves and our adult daughter-everything was provided and of a high standard , and the airconditioning was a boon in the glorious hot weather we enjoyed.
Our host was extremely gracious providing some great advice on restaurants and tips about local travel etc.
The apartment is well located with a bar,gelateria and coffee shop downstairs, supermarkets close by and the centre and old town only a short walk away.There is a convenient and frequent bus service to the railway station with Venice , Ravenna and Bologna less than an hour away by train.
Being at the top of a beautiful restored building there are several flights of steps to contend with-we are over 60 and found them no trouble but needs to be considered if accessibility is a priority.
Bottom line-we loved it and would highly recommend this property.
The apartment is located inside a building dating back to the 15th century with a breathtaking view over a Renaissance town square in the middle of Ferrara's historical centre, Easy access to railway station and motorway network, making it possible to reach Venice, Florence, Ravenna or Mantua in just over an hour by train or car, or Bologna in just half an hour. Come visit the Residence of the d'Este Family, the Cathedral, Palazzo dei Diamanti, Palazzo Schifanoia, the museums in Palazzo Massari and the Theatre. Ferrara also offers amazing examples of Renaissance art, together with modern and contemporary masterpieces. Ferrara is the town of music in all its genres from classical music to opera, and jazz performed through events taking place in the summer in the courtyards of ancient buildings, inside churches, or town squares and in September, the Busker's Festival fills the town's evenings with rhythms and shows performed by street artists.
