Reviewed 20 August 2012

Franco and Luisa were wonderful hosts, took time to discuss our plans and made some excellent suggestions. In the restarurant they recommened we tasted most delicious pizza. The downtown area is just a five minute walk.

Franco and Luisa were very helpful and accommodating. Our "room" exceeded our expectations, with not only the washer, side patio and garden area shown, but also a sink and dishes to use while there! The room itself is not huge, but the extra space afforded by the patio and garden make up for it. A lot of care was taken to be sure you have what you need. We would spend a full day exploring some of the many beautiful areas around (Padova, Verona, Montagnana, ....), and if we returned at a reasonable hour we could spend a pleasant evening picnicking on our leftovers and/or wonderful veggies and cheeses we had picked up for a light supper. It is only about an hour from Venice, a little more to Bologna, Very close to Arqua Petrarcha - there is truly more than you can possibly see. The only caveat is that the tub was a bit narrow and has a hand-held shower head which cannot be placed high, but there is also a separate shower (which was also very narrow). Nearby "Da Brunetto" ristorante pizzeria (on road to left off Via di Torre before you reach the corner of the castle) was extremely reasonable with great pizza as well as pasta and main dishes -about anything you'd want. Didn't see vegetables on the menu (poor Italian), but asked and got a very tasty mountain of 4 different kinds!

Room Tip: Only saw the room with its own patio entrance on the main floor.

We have enjoyed many happy and pleasant holidays at the Poetas' house. Franco and Luisa are the ultimate hosts. They pay careful attention to the needs of their guests and they provide spotlessly clean and very comfortable accomodation. Este is a beautiful town, close enough to the sights of Venice, Bologna and Padua in order to enjoy them without the hectic pace of staying in a city. There are some great restaurants to be enjoyed in Este, just ask Franco and Luisa for some recommendations. The Poetas have travelled widely themselves and have lots of advice on how best to plan your itinerary in Italy. Nothing is a difficulty for Franco as he greets each request with a smile. Likewise Luisa shows warmth to each of her guests. We are already planning our next trip to Este and will definitely be returning to the Poeta's house. We have now visited in both summer and winter and can confirm that both Este and the Poetas have a fabulous experience to offer at all times of the year.

Franco and Luisa greeted us like old friends even though we had never met them. We shared our travel experiences and how valuable it is to learn about other cultures and countries. We had lots of laughs. Our room was a perfect way to relax in privacy. And, very clean and comfortable. The windows open onto a side yard, and in front there is a nice garden. They recommended a great trattoria within an easy walk. All-in-all, we enjoyed their friendly hospitality and the restful accommodations. We hope to return soon.

What an excellent bed & breakfast, ideally located in a very quiet place, with spacious & fully equipped room & bathroom (includes a washing machine) & all you need to make coffee or tea or to warm food or keep food in a fridge, etc...

Luisa & Franco are simply adorable & will welcome you warmly as if you were longtime friends, they will give you plenty of pieces of advice to make the most of your stay & visit all the interesting places around (Este castle, roman & etrusche sites, etc...) & last but not least, their place is only 5 mn by car from Monselice where you can take the train to go to wonderful Venezia, you arrive in the centre of the dodge city within 50 mn.

Definitely the place to stay ! And to come back to !

What a fabulous find! A litle B and B in Este which was exactly what we wanted after travelling for three weeks throughout Europe. Franco and Luisa coud not have been more helpful as we began to explore this fascinating region of Italy. Franco even introduced us to Erica, who runs the most amazing little restaurant in this beautiful village, and she spoke perfect English. Luisa and Franco obviously love meeting people as they were very gracious and provided us with a very warm welcome. We were able to explore Venice as it is only an hour away by a very easy train ride.
A perfect place to stay when exploring this region of Italy

As from the phone call to reserve the room until the departure, Luisa and Franco make you feel at home. They really know how to run a bed and breakfast. The warm welcome, the valuable information, the clean room with a comfortable bed and bathroom, the delicious breakfast.... there's not one negative point ! The ideal location, minutes from the train station to Venice and close to Padova make it even more interesting. We took the train to Venice and it was impressive to arrive in the heart of Venice in only 50 minutes. I hope we'll be able to stay with Luisa and Franco very soon again.
