"What can I say about this apartment! We came for our honeymoon and hated leaving! Location: amazing! Walked to dinner at Osteria Francescana and stumbled our way back after many glasses of wine. Enjoyed walking the streets of Modena as everything was accessible. Apartment had everything we could need and items were intuitively placed around the apartment. When I was cold, I found a warm blanket easily, when we needed snacks, they were clearly left for us. Thank you for the amazing stay. We hope to come back for our anniversary someday".

Courtney Morales Rosen     

"This was the most incredible Airbnb! we are already looking forward to coming back to modena just to experience the calm and openness of Francesca's place again. Easily one of airbnb's best."

"This is a gem! Francesca is a wonderful host and her penthouse apartment is so beautifully appointed. Linen sheets, espresso, fantastic art. gorgeous and thoughtful details everywhere you look. For those dining at Osteria Francescana there could be no better place to stay. Enjoy every minute!"

Morgan Day Cecil               

"Francesca's apartment is located on a quiet street just across from Osteria Francescana. It is a short walk to the city center. There is a great sandwich shop around the corner. The apartment is well-appointed with great art and a nice combination of modern and cozy. Wifi worked well, kitchen stocked with some basic essentials and Francesca went out of her way to accommodate our needs. She recommended a local tour guide, Monica Salvioli, who I also highly recommend. Modena is a great place to visit if you are a foodie. We loved our stay. Thank you Francesca!"

"Without doubt the best accommodation in Modena. The location is 10/10, especially if you are having dinner at Osteria Francescana as its literally opposite it! It is very spacious, very well decorated, tons of amenities and Francesca is extremely helpful, kind and professional. I would stay here again without a doubt."

"Francesca's apartment is one of the most stylish apartments that we have stayed in. It is exquisitely decorated and the attention to detail is incredible. The kitchen is fully equipped and Francesca provided everything we needed for a delicious breakfast. It was very quiet apartment and it is a wonderful sanctuary for a relaxing weekend. It is also perfectly located, close to the best restaurants and cafes in Modena. The apartment also has 2 bicycles for exploring the city. Francesca was a wonderful host. She was very responsive and gave us lots of tips for places to eat. It was an absolute pleasure staying in her apartment and we hope to return very soon!"

Chrysothemis & Luke Brown             

 

 

"This was our 2nd stay at Francesca's flat in Modena and I'm sure we'll have many more. We love going back. This apt is my dream home. It is thoughtfully decorated, quiet, fascinating and elegant. It's like staying in a hip Art Gallery with a really comfortable bed. Her attention to detail is astounding. Modena is a one of the best kept secrets in Italy. Great Food, lovely people and stunning architecture."

Monica Trapaga                 

 

 

"She was a lovely person, intuitive and very happy to help. Her apartment is amazing, it feels like a really chic and cool home and very tastefully done. Unlike other AirBnb rooms there was no awkward deposit or contract to sign just a a very warm welcome with a well stocked fridge and dry store."

Gareth Oakes              

 

 

"Francesca was a brilliant host. The communication before we arrived was great and directions were really clear. We loved the apartment, so stylish and we were made to feel very welcome. We would have loved to have stayed longer. The central location was great, we talked to the main square in 5 minutes and we were less than 10 minutes from the train station. The fridge was stocked with milk and delicious yoghurts and we loved to have a coffee machine. It couldn't have been any better and we would highly recommend you try and book Francesca's apartment."

Mick Whitley                    

 

 

"Francesca was a wonderful host. She met us at the apartment, showed us all the amenities, gave us a map of Modena with a list of

favourite restaurants and then left it to us to enjoy. The little touches of having simple breakfast (orange juice, toast, coffee, cereal) already there for us was lovely. There were also fresh flowers in the apartment to add a little colour. The apartment itself is a lovely artists studio that is very tastefully decorated."

Jody Edmunds                    

 

 

Francesca, is an amazing host! I highly recommend staying in Francesca's beautiful bed and breakfast. She really went above and beyond to make you feel at home. Great restaurant recommendations and provided bicycles for us to use around the city. Through out our stay she also checked in to make sure we were OK and if we needed anything. The listing was accurate to the description provided. Bed and pillows were comfortable. Kitchen was great-fridge was stocked with water and breakfast items. As traditional Italian home, she also had it stocked with espresso. The bathroom, had a variety of shampoos and conditioners, body washes, mouthwash, lotion, q-tips, soaps and linen hand towels. Francesca, beautifully designed the house- I loved seeing every little detail in her design. I want her to come design my home it was fabulous. The apartment was right down in main city center square. Easy navigating around and absolutely a perfect location especially if you are dining at Osteria Francescana. Thank you, Francesca for a fabulous stay in Modena!"

 

Lauren Ann                    

"Francesca's place is amazing and she is an amazing host. First her place is huge, bright, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. I really felt like I was in a decor magazine/private art gallery. Francesca is also such a lovely host. She made everything really easy, provided maps, recommendations, two bikes that come with the apartment, snacks, etc. and she checked in on us after our first night to make sure everything was going well. She is a model host with a model apartment. Also, the location is great to get around the city and, as has been previously mentioned, if you are going to Osteria Francescana it is literally across the street, so this is the perfect location."

 

Tracy Dion                  

 

"Strongly recommend! Francesca is a lovely person and her apartment is gorgeous. The location is great, the decoration is beautiful and it is quite spacious (bigger than what I expected by looking the photos). She amazed us with details such as complimentary bikes, quality products for breakfast and her own listing of local restaurants and cafeterias. Perfect place!"

 

Stevan Dos Santos              

 

 

"Our stay at Francesca's apartment at the heart of Modena was wonderful from the outset. The apartment was exceptionally well appointed, light and spacious with every amenity catered for. Francesca was a wonderful host, always responsive to the questions we had about the apartment and this charming medieval town. Very conveniently located opposite Osteria Francescana where we had a reservation, we bumped into Chef Massimo Bottura no less than 3 times before we dined there!"

 

Stanley Chan              

 

 

"The best apartment we ever stayed in. Located in the historic part of Modena, this rooftop apartment has everything we needed - a kitchen with great food and equipment, large rooms and above all, SUPER CLEAN. Make this your next vacation."

 

Ben Klinger                   

 

 

"This was one of our favorite places that we have ever stayed. The location is perfect if you will dining at Osteria Francescana and the loft is open, spacious, with lots of natural lighting, and very warm and welcoming. We highly recommend staying here."

Ben McKown                   

 

 

"Absolutely incredible flat! Super stylish and spacious. Francesca was very easy to communicate with and answered any questions we had straight away. Fantastic location - it's right in front of Osteria Franscescana! I highly recommend this flat!"

 

Pernilla Lofberg             

 

 

"Francesca could not have been more accomodating and helpful when we met her on the first day. Her apartment was beautifully appointed and stylish and had a warmth which helps it feel like home when you are abroad. It had all the amenities we required, very clean, neat and tidy. In addition, it's proximity to Osteria Francescana meant we bumped into none other than Massimo more than once! Also the bikes came in very handy and were the perfect way to see Modena.Lovely apartment, could not recommend it more highly. Thank you!"

 

Shoumen Howlader                 

 

 

"Francesca is a fantastic host. The apartment is impeccably decorated, with everything you need, and the apartment is much larger than it appears in the photos. Perfectly located, in the center of town but on a quiet street. A lovely visit to Modena!"

 

Lisa Muskat                 

 

 

"Francesca's home is the best experience we have had on Air BnB so far. Her house is elegant, creative, spotlessly clean and her attention to detail is extraordinary. We wished we could have stayed for a week. Francesca is charming and so easy to deal with. We felt completely at home. She organised so many surprises that we discovered and her suggestions as to what to do we're perfect. Fresh flowers, perfectly ironed linen sheets, slippers and delightful tea, coffee and breakfast. She even organised his and her bicycles to ride around Modena. We would recommend her home to anyone who appreciates good art, interesting books and many visual treasures. It's perfect"

 

Monica Trapaga                 

 

 

"Francesca was an amazing host. She waited patiently for us after a small traffic delay and even drove with us to find parking. The great news was that the car never moved because everything was within walking distance. Her recommendations for food were amazing and she did an even better job suggesting things to do close by that wouldn't be a hassle. As far as the apartment - it is HUGE. The pictures really don't do it justice. It is an amazing use of space and the historic beams in the ceiling and great light make it all the better. Also - the artwork and collection of books was like a combo of living in an expertly curated library and gallery all in one. Overall we can't wait to come back and stay longer and I can't think of anywhere else we would stay. We'll definitely be recommending friends to stay here as well."

 

Brandon McFadden             

 

 

"Francesca was a great host. She replied to my messages within 20 minutes or less and did a great job of orienting us to the apartment and to Modena during check-in. The apartment was exactly as described - charming (not to mention beautifully designed). A very comfortable bedroom and living room; the kitchen provided exactly what we needed for a simple breakfast before heading out in the morning. Also, what a wonderful library - if you are an artist, writer, designer, or academic, the apartment is filled with treasures to make you smile. If you are dining at Osteria Francescana, the location cannot be beat - step out the front door, walk 20 paces to the entrance of the restaurant, stumble home with a full belly. I could not recommend this place more highly."

 

Matthew Deming                   

 

 

"This is a very spacious, comfortable apartment with a touch of luxury. The neighbourhood is peaceful, it is situated a short walk from shops and restaurants within the walls of the old town. The host was very helpful, warm and friendly. A perfect location with breakfast at a beautiful restaurant. There was a generous amount of food and drinks for us to use."

 

Matthew Greaves                  

 

 

"This is possibly the most welcoming, lovely Air BnB we've ever stayed in, anywhere. This apartment boasts everything you need and all the things you didn't even know you wanted! Modena was beautiful and we got to explore the city on the provided bikes. We absolutely loved it!"

 

Meghan Lindsay                     

 

 

"This is THE place to stay if you are eating at Osteria Francesca! It is literally across the street - couldn't be in a better location. The apartment was extremely well-designed, beautiful and comfortable. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay! Francesca was so kind and easy to communicate with - highly recommended. Fair warning - parking is very challenging in the immediate area, but Fransesca is kind enough to give you a parking pass if needed. Thank you!"

 

Lauren Frank                       

 

 

"Our stay at Francesca's B&B was perfect. The apartment is really wonderful and looks even better than it does in the pictures. It's comfortable, has everything one would need (including the use of two bikes) and is beautifully designed. The location is great for anything you would wish to do in Modena, close to all of the sights, shops, bars and restaurants. Francesca made the whole process really easy. We also appreciated her bringing us a delicious breakfast in the mornings! We would love to stay at the apartment again. We cannot recommend it, highly enough!"

 

Sean Murphy                   

 

 

"Francesca was a great host! The apartment was spotlessly clean, modern and had lovely features like the Eames chair and beautiful wooden beams in the celling. Really cool. We had good communication and she came and made us breakfast in the morning. It was a lovely touch. We got a parking permit provided too which was great but be aware if you drive that parking in Modena is tricky and finding a space can take extra time. The location was fab and Francesca gave us a map to get around easily. She also gave us great recommendations for local balsamic tasting and meals out. A really thoughtful host. We'd highly recommend this listing."

 

Lizzie Mortimer                     

 

 

"Francesca made our two-day stay in Modena a fairy-tale. It was a great pleasure to stay at her house. Everything was even better than pictures, very thoughtful and made with heart apartment design, cosy rooftop loft atmosphere. My boyfriend and I came to Modena to have dinner at Osteria Francescana and if you are going for the same thing you won't find the better place - the loft is situated right across the road! Francesca also brought us fresh pastries for breakfast and arranged everything beautifully. The house is about 15 min walk from the station as the city is very small it is very walkable and easy to get to. Thank you again Francesca! It was such a beautiful stay! We are definitely coming back if we are in Modena again!"

 

Kate Aleksandrova                     

 

 

"This place was perfect. It was exactly as described and more. Being artists/architects, we loved the design and touches throughout. We had easy communication and were met by Francesca's daughter who helped settle us in. Francesca kindly made reservations for us at a fantastic restaurant and had our breakfast delivered in the morning. As Airbnb hosts ourselves, I picked up some welcome tips. Gracie."

 

Elle Flanders                  

 

 

"The apartment was fantastic and in a perfect location (right across the street from Osteria Francescana, perfect stumbling distance after an epic meal!). Beautifully furnished, easy access, Francesca's daughter was there to greet us and helped facilitate parking nearby. Modena is also off the tourist track and a lovely town to spend time–it was a very pleasant surprise. I would definitely recommend this place!"

 

Jess Shaefer                       

 

 

"Francesca's apartment was a beautiful, peaceful home base for a two-night stay in Modena. If you are in town to eat at Osteria Francescana, as we were, the apartment is literally across the street from the restaurant, making it easy to stumble home. The apartment itself is clean and well-appointed, with several reading nooks and plenty of light that give a sense of relaxation and space. Francesca was prompt and communicative, and a kind and gracious host who provided delicious breakfast each day. This was one of my most memorable AirBnB experiences, and I would definitely stay here again."

 

Kelli Howard                   

 

 

"Francesca was the perfect host! we had a lovely conversation and we felt at home right away, the flat is just beautiful, very tasteful, and well designed, nice art and many great books! the location is perfect, with one of the best restaurants in the world across the street and a wonderful historic center all around, we will be pleased to go back there anytime when in Modena. Grazie Francesca! Ciao"

 

Emiliano Casarosa                      

​"Absolutely beautiful apartment and location in Modena. Francesca is an excellent host and even helped us find a great restaurant around the corner called Mon Cafe. Couldn't have asked for a better host, location or town. This is a must visit location".

 

Paul Williamson         

 

 

 

"Wonderful apartment that is more spacious than depicted in photos. Perfectly clean, lovely linen and towels. Space had very special atmosphere that was hard to leave! Francesca was very easy to communicate with and could not be more helpful as she helped us book a taxi, borrow bikes and delivered a lovely breakfast daily. Highly recommended".

 

Sarah Jamieson              

 

      

 

"Very very nice apartment! It was close to great areas in Modena, and we had a great time staying here. It was very easy to communicate with Francesca, the apartment was spacious & accommodating, and most importantly clean. Francesca is an amazingly nice host - she offers breakfast, a pair of bikes, and has excellent recommendations. Thanks so much!"

 

Alex Rialdi                   

 

 

 

"We had a great stay at Francesca. We found the apartment was even more beautiful then on the pictures and the location was superb, right in the center of Modena. The fridge was full of juice and water, while coffee was provided with a nespresso. Good WIFI and a smooth check-in made the stay just perfect."

 

Reinier Van Dantzig      

 

 

 

"We had the best time in the world, Francesca's home is inspiring, full of light, amazing taste and design. She was extremely nice and helpful, helped us make a reservation when we got stuck and helped us around when needed. The breakfasts were perfect and the location is bang in the middle of the old city, which is exactly where you want to be."

 

Jonathan Keren             

 

 

 

"Wow, what a place! The place is large, airy, pretty, tasty decorated and very comfortable. We ate at Osteria Francescana and chose here for convenience, however, in the end we got luxury! Francesca was a great host, making us breakfast and not waking us which was pleasant as we celebrated late in to the evening. Thanks again!"

 

Ryan Rutter                 

 

 

 

"A fantastic apartment in the heart of Modena. We stayed here as we were dining at Osteria Francescana which is almost opposite and as such was very convenient. The apartment is very stylish, well equipped, and very comfortable. Compared to the hotels in the city, the price is a real bargain, and it even comes with breakfast as well. I would highly recommend staying here. Our host was wonderful, very helpful, and made some good other restaurant recommendations as well. Much of what there is to see in Modena is within walking distance as well."

 

Robert Floyd              

 

 

 

"Francesca is a wonderful host and her apartment is beautiful and cosy, right in the city center of Modena. She provided advice for dinner, the aperitivo was very nice, tasty food and good italian wine. I will be happy to come back next time I will stay in Modena. Grazie mille Francesca!"

 

Anne Le Fournis           

 

 

 

"Francesca could not have been a more perfect host! She made us feel welcome in the most important ways: by helping us navigate our arrival and locating her home; by serving a healthy, tasty breakfast at times that worked for our schedule; by offering an array of activities, restaurants, and personal tips not often found as tourists; and simply her lovely manner of being. And all of this was accomplished with the limitations and humor of the Italian/English language differences! Francesca's listing description was completely consistent with the reality of her great home and the fabulous neighborhood. There we were staying in a beautiful historic building that allowed us a true taste of life in the magical town of Modena. We are forever grateful to Francesca and will be back again soon!"

 

Virginia HP Gussman
