We had a very nice stay with Francesca. Francesca's apartment is located just outside the center: a short walking distance to all the sites in Modena. The apartment is lovely: spacious and beautifully decorated. Francesca is a very kind and warm host. The room is spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathroom is modern with a great shower and plenty of room to move around. The bathroom is just outside the bedroom. Francesca was available to answer our questions. She provided a great breakfast for us. There is also free and available parking right outside the apartment. In Modena it is not possible to drive your car in the center if you are not a resident. This is another plus about this location. Available and free parking and still within short walking distance of everything including the Ferrari Museum. Francesca's two cats are adorable and friendly. I would highly recommend staying with Francesca when you visit Modena.

We had a very enjoyable week in Francesca's comfortable appartment. She is enthusiastic and generous and embodies all the characteristics we hope to find in a host. She was very flexible in meeting our needs and very good company. The appartment is just ten minutes away from the centre of town and the train station is just a bus ride away. We wish her well for the future.

Francesca was an amazing host. This was our favorite spot that we stayed while travelling throughout Italy. Francesca went out of her way to make us feel welcome ( making us fresh breakfast, prepared ice coffee, offered use cold water, etc). Her house is spotless ((VERY clean) and beautifully decorated...and her cats are beyond friendly (we are huge animal lovers so having the cats there was an added bonus). Francesca also gave us wonderful recommendations (where to eat, take the bus, buy balsamic vinegar). The place she told us to eat was outstanding (authentic Italian food). We loved staying with Francesca and would recommend her place to anyone. Thanks again Francesca!!

Francesca is a love host and person. She is very helpful and considerate with everything. She gave us advise, recommendations and helped us a lot with our trip. She also prepared coffee and breakfast for us. And her two cats are very sweet and nice. The room is very nice and spacious, same goes with the bathroom. The location is in a quiet area, but still within walking distance of everything. Can definitely reccommend!

Staying with Francesca was the highlight of our trip! Francesca is an exceptionally warm and kind person, willing and desiring to help with any and all questions my partner and I had. From providing directions to reservations, suggesting areas to visit and places to eat, even cooking carbonara with us and simply genuinely spending hours conversing, I couldn't have asked for a more amazing place to stay with a better person. Also, the cats are simply adorable! Thank you for being such a lovely host. We hope to cross paths with you again!

Francesca is fantastic! She's a very welcoming, caring and kind woman. Her cats are nice and sweet and even playful sometimes. Her place is tidy, inviting and beautiful as well. Ask her anything, she's very open to share some tips and tricks about Modena (and Italy) with you. She also makes the best spaghetti carbonara I had! I highly recommend her place!
