This place is not the easiest to find but well worth it. I could not imagine anywhere better to stay while in Ferrara. There is excellent off street secure parking a lovely garden with a shaded area and cold home made lemonade available on a hot day. The B&B is modern and our room at the back very quiet. It was a well equipped room with a lovely en suite shower room. They even provide tea/coffe making facilities in the room (which is not always common in Italy). The owner is very helpful and makes you feel very welcome. There are bikes to hire free which is very useful in Ferrara which probably has more bikes than cars! The breakfast was amazing with home made yoghurts, apple compots and just about anything you could wish for to eat for breakfast. Just delightful. I highly recommend this R&B.
