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.
