Relax in this rustic Italian farmhouse hotel in Emilia-Romagna, with breakfast or half board, and an optional suite


For an Italian country stay which combines a homely, rustic atmosphere with the amenities of a modern hotel, look no further than Hotel La Tortiola. This family-run retreat, set in a restored farmhouse in the countryside outside Ferrara, offers comfortable country accommodation and a fantastic restaurant, which showcases the delicious traditions of Ferrarese cuisine. Add in a lovely pool and relaxing gardens, and even live music at the Octágono venue, and you have everything you need for an enjoyable stay in the Emilia-Romagna countryside.

Guestrooms at Hotel La Tortiola have a rustic, homely feel, with tiled floors, sloped ceilings criss-crossed with robust wooden beams, and rugged, whitewashed wooden furniture. Standard rooms are spacious and airy, with high ceilings, work desks, and French doors which let the sunlight in and open out onto the hotel grounds. Suites are even more generously sized, and also feature long banquettes where you can put your feet up and relax.

Like everything else at the hotel, food at Hotel La Tortiola is a homely, traditional affair, with the Monna Lisa restaurant serving up delicious Ferrarese specialities on a rotating basis. Local delicacies to look out for include cappellacci (a type of pasta filled with butternut squash and served with rich ragù), sausage and pumpkin risotto, and delicious local salami and cheeses. Grilled fish are also a speciality here, fresh from the River Po or the sea. Breakfast has a more international flavour, with a continental selection of fruit and pastries, alongside heartier meat and egg options.


The hotel sits in the countryside of Emilia-Romagna, a short way west of the city of Ferrara. Famed as one of the cradles of the Italian Renaissance, this is very much a spot for culture vultures of all stripes; anyone with even a passing interest in art and history will love Ferrara. The beautiful medieval streets here hide countless architectural treasures, which you might find you have all to yourself – all the other tourists are further north in Venice. Castello Estense is an impressive fortress dating back to the 14th century, where you can get a taste of the life of a king with a tour of the royal chambers – and that of a prisoner, in the gloomy dungeon. Other highlights include the Pinacoteca Nazionale, where you can admire the work of some of Ferrara’s greatest artists from the 16th and 17th centuries.
