Agriturismo Le Occare Guesthouse, Ferrara - Italy

An ancient Farmhouse in the countryside of Ferrara

The Agriturismo Le Occare Guest-house is a four tables restaurant and a three rooms guest house, established in an old farmhouse, with a pleasant and secluded location, in the green of Ferrara countryside.
The main building consists of an ancient country house, property of our family for four generations, dating back to the middle of the 18th century, that was fully restored, in a conservative manner, with the precise purpose to maintain all the charm of the original architecture.
The guest house is encyrcled by a fenced park, provided with a little swimming pool, an old court with two other ancient buildings, and a 30000 square meters wooden area, strongly populated by birds, and producing truffles. The kitchen-garden and the crops of the farm, extended for 64 hectares, are all around. During the restoration of the buildings we toke a great care into the preservation of the original architecture and of the surrounding environment.

The little charming restaurant is principally focused on regional recipes and utilizes largely the products of the farm and the kitchen garden together with the truffles and mushrooms from the wood. An ancient firewood oven, carefully restored, allow us to cook the renowned traditional Ferrara bread, the «ciupèta», in the same original way it was prepared in the 19th century.
Agriturismo Le Occare is also a little cosy three rooms guest house, with all the charm of a 3 centuries old farmhouse, but with all the comfort of an efficient restoration, in a ppleasant and very quiet location.
Only 15.5 miles (25 km) far from Ferrara Agriturismo Le Occare Guest-house is still fully secluded from the traffic and the noises, in a very relaxing environment, away from the main roads.
For its location in the near countryside of Ferrara Agriturismo Le Occare offers you a quiet and pleasant accommodation, still in a short range of distance from Ferrara, an Unesco world heritage because of its magnificent medieval and renaissance architecture, its very well preserved city walls and its monuments. In the near proximity of the farmhouse there are the Belriguardo and Verginese castles and at a short distance the natural reserve of the Po Delta.
