Spotlessly clean apartment, well equipped kitchen, very comfortable bed, lovely terrace. Loved the bikes. Enrico was a very helpful and friendly host.

The apartment was extremely comfortable for the two of us. I think it would have been cramped had we been four. Doris was a wonderful host and kept in touch during our stay in Ferrara. The apartment was very clean and everything worked as described. Ferrara is a great town with many restaurants and great shops. The only inconvenience was that the wifi was very weak and we could not easily get on line.
