“Complete relaxation at Ca du Ferra agriturismo”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

We spent a total of four nights at Ca du Ferra, two at "Il Mulino" and two at "Il Casottino", so we sampled both properties. They each have their charm, with Il Mulino offering the added bonus of a water stream right at your feet! It was perfect for our big party of 7; we shared the two rooms of the Mulino and we used the outside kitchen and barbecue area, which was well equipped. At night, the place lit up with fireflies! At the end of our trip, it was just me and my husband, and we checked in at Il Casottino (one of the two rooms available there). There too, we enjoyed the relaxing garden. Both properties were equally clean, the hostess Aida very welcoming. Communication with her was quick and efficient, first via email and then in person at check-in, when she gave us a wealth of information as she was setting us up. What we really liked about the property - other than its sheer beauty and the many excellent reviews - is that they offered free parking (some 300 meters up the road), and that way we could leave the car and explore Cinque Terre by train/foot. Another plus is that it's a 10 minute walk from the train station, which was very convenient for us. We were able to go to Monterosso by train and take the footpath on to Vernazza (only this portion of the path was open to tourists at the time we were there).
I guess, to sum it up, I would say that the place is simply wonderful, an oasis of tranquility and lush vegetation. Highly recommended. We would love to come back and really allow ourselves time to spend in the garden; this time around we wanted to be out in Cinque Terre and we didn't take full advantage of the beautiful gardens at Ca du Ferra.

The Hostess was wonderful from the start- she always responded promptly/helpfully via email, once we arrived she gave great direction and explanation of everything (unlike some of the other agritourismo hosts!) and she cleaned our room daily! wow!
The location was PERFECT, (very easy access to cinque terre towns) the room was clean, and the grounds were beautiful (we went in early spring).
It wasn't luxurious , but it was an excellent stay!!

I enjoyed a lot this amazing place with its unique location and atmosphere. I relax in deep contact with the nature in a timeless sensation. The friendliness of the owners was a big plus: I felt part of their family! Good service and amazing homemade products such as cakes and yogurt. I will go soon!

We've been there for 1 week to discover 5Terre. We really appreciated de kindness of Aida and her family, to make our stay comfortable. The breakfast is good, homemade bread and cakes are very tasty. We used the outdoor kitchen and loved eating in the 'private' garden, next to the river. The train station is about 100m, so it's really a good place, to go hike every day in 5Terre.
Bonasolla itselfs is a very small town, we found it a bit too calm, off season. But Levanto is very nearby, by foot or bike (free rental at Ca du Ferra).

We stayed at Ca Du Ferra for 2 nights. WE LOVED IT! The room was cozy and warm, the property was located up on the hill and was lush with fruit trees and flowers. Walking into town was easy and fun on a small village path. Bonassola is a GREAT town with fabulous food and friendly people. It is very preferable to staying in one of the more touristy Cinque Terre towns.

Aida is a wonderful host, she lives close by and is available if you need her, but she lets you completely do your own thing. She delivers breakfast to a table out in the yard for you every morning. It features homemade yogurt, cakes, homemade bread, coffee, jam, fruit....it's a GREAT way to start your day:)

She also owns very nice bikes which can be rented for 5 euro per day. Bonassola is on a great bike path that runs from Framura to Levanto in old railroad tunnels. We loved riding to Levanto and just enjoying that town, as there is a lot to do. It's also the jumping off point for the Cinque Terre Train so we rode bikes to Levanto (about 20 minutes on flat terrain), tied them up, and hopped the train into the park. It's a great activity!

Lastly, we were visiting Ca Du Ferra on our honeymoon. Aida gave us a bottle of her wine as a parting gift, with a small note attached congratulating us on our wedding! And the wine was absolutely delicious. We loved Ca Du Ferra and felt very at home, and you will too!

beautiful and calm place, not as crowded as the nearby cinque terre but so close to them to make it the perfect location to spend time in a green, relaxed and well kept place. the rooms are simple and rather small, but with everything you want for a comfortable stay without having to compromise any thing that really matters for an excellent time. if you really need it, there's even wifi, but life is better offline there! :) the couple that runs ca du ferra are lovely and so welcoming, you will feel at home the time you arrive and leaving again will not be easy!! they run a vinyard nearby and seem happy (and proud) to show you around. definitely not our last time there we spent 5 wonderful days.

Room Tip: rooms in casottino are small but have all you need, but you will not spend a lot of time inside :) i...

We stayed 6 nights at Ca du Ferra and while the weather was rainy for half the time, we still managed to see the Cinque Terre, hike between two of the villages, have some beach time, cook a few meals, have some lovely dinners out and truly rest. Aida was a very gracious hostess, and we appreciated finding our breakfast outside our door every morning. The 5 minute walk to the train station was easy, as was the train ride to the Cinque Terre. We were sorry to leave.

Welcome to Cà du Ferrà Farm & Relax! The farm is located in Bonassola, a small village in the province of La Spezia, in the Riviera di Levante, near the Cinque Terre National Park.The story begins early in the year 2000, when Antonio and Aida, clothing dealer her, building contractor him, to escape from the routine that led decide to change their lives and devote themselves to rural tourism, agriculture and the environment, love that had always kept in the drawer and never want to put away. Over the years they have purchased land and several outbuildings that slowly begin to adjust and restructure, and this is so that by the hands of Antonio and the creative immagination of Aida are born "The Casottino" and "The Mill", recovered with tenacity and passion of two structures used for housing animals. With the old buildings are also retrieved all the vacant lots, parcels cleaned and planted with vines, which is now undergoing conversion from conventional to certified organic agricolture.
