TORRETTA RESIDENCE: RAFFAELLO – ROOMY, LIGHT-FILLED,OWN LAWN & PARKING

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Bologna City

6 guests in 2 bedrooms + livingroom, 2 bathrooms. Fireplace. Great yard.

TORRETTA RESIDENCE: RAFFAELLO – Roomy, light-and-bright, own lawn and parking.

A former two-storey, very welcoming typical early 1900’s Bolognese rural house, Torretta Residence is located in the Calderara section of Bologna, only a few kilometers from the center of town. It benefits from good public transportation connections (suburban train at 300 mts – 8 minutes to the center!) and is extremely convenient to the airport and the fairground.

The house features a private parking lot and a pretty fenced yard with a lawn and a barbecue for relaxation and child safety. All windows overlook both farming land and a couple of storage-industrial barns. Any possible disturbance caused by the airport and the industrial area is prevented inside the house by a very effective noiseproof insulation. The property as a whole underwent total renovation in 2012 with particular attention paid to decoration, details and functionality.

Torretta Residence is centrally heated and firewood is available for the fireplace. Cotto floors, timber ceilings and furniture chosen with taste and zest mix with all the necessary modern appliances including a dishwasher, a washing machine, an air-conditioning system, a microwave oven, a satellite TV with VCR/DVD and complimentary 24 hours/day broadband internet wi-fi connection. All this to make your stay at our place exactly like home – or even better!

All rooms in the house are large, bright and charming. RAFFAELLO unit has its own entrance for total privacy. Its layout is:

- Ground floor: large living-dining room (1 double sofa bed) with a fireplace, kitchen (all tools provided), bathroom.

- Upper floor: 2 bedrooms (room 1: 2 single beds; room 2: 1 double), bathroom.

RAFFAELLO accommodates up to 6 guests. If you need more room, see VRBO #433799 for the other unit onsite.

Booking is accepted for every time of the year. There is no fixed changeover day and the minimum stay is 4 nights.

With its location and general features, RAFFAELLO is ideal for those willing to share their time between business and sightseeing. Along with the center of Bologna, all the major northern-central Italian art cities are just a stone's throw away. It is also an ideal accommodation for the business person in need of a strategically-positioned headquarters that is close to the fairground (no need to drive through the congested center of Bologna!), the airport and the highway. All guests will enjoy total comfort and absolute convenience – exactly as they wish.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This villa is one of the nicest properties I stayed at. Immaculately clean, spacious, well appointed, and was a home from home for a few days. Alberto, Anna and their family have seen to every detail of the apartment, right down to their local wine and produce! Great location, steps away from the 8 minute train ride into central Bologna. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended, and the villa will be my first on my list when I return to Bologna.

I am a retired entrepreneur in my early 60's, married, two children. A true passion for photography and traveling, I help my wife Anna in her organic farming activity (the farm is walking distance to the house). I lived in Canada for a while and love making friends from all over the world.

Alberto purchased this house in 1989

We bought this house when we decided to leave the busy center for something closer to our way of living, which was definitely countryside-oriented. After a short stay here we bought another house nearby - where we presently live - and passed this one onto our children. Now the children are married and moved elsewhere, so we decided to turn the house into a short-stay rental.

It was away from it all and a typical Early-1900's Bolognese country house, so we fell in love with it and its warm, family atmosphere.

OTTIMA SOLUZIONE PER LA FIERA

  • 4 out of 5
La proprietà è ideale per chi deve lavorare alla fiera, che è accessibile senza bisogno di attraversare il centro molto trafficato di Bologna. Noi (5 persone, espositori) abbiamo risolto raggiungendo il Fiera District in auto tutti i giorni utilizzando la vicinissima Tangenziale raggiungendo poi il centro di Bologna la sera in pochissimi minuti. Garantisco che il vantaggio fa una grandissima differenza! La casa poi è ampia, luminosa e molto confortevole, con letti comodi e attrezzata per ogni necessità. Il proprietario è molto disponibile e il prezzo è decisamente buono. L'unico aspetto negativo è la prossimità con alcuni capannoni di deposito agricolo o industriale, ma la casa è contornata da alberi e siepi che la schermano sufficientemente e la vista sui campi rimane. Ottima soluzione abitativa, consigliata specialmente a fini di base per lavoro in Bologna.

10 BEAUTIFUL DAYS

  • 5 out of 5
Spent 10 beautiful days at this place in 2013. Booking went smooth as expected. The house is conveniently located with a good view to the open fields. The house itself is of very good quality and has everything you need for a splendid holiday. Roomy, well kept, light-and-bright, clean. The garden is beautiful with plenty of flowers and the surroundings are excellent. Excellent communications with the city. Very nice owner. I highly recommend this house.

TOTAL SATISFACTION

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of 6 stayed at this villa in August 2012 and thoroughly loved it. It is a pretty house surrounded by a fenced and gated lawn which is ideal if you have children. The center is not close, but is easily reachable by train - it took us no more than 8 minutes to get there, whereas the station is only 3 minutes walk. The house is large and clean, light filled, tastefully decorated and well equipped for self catering, with a safe and free parking lot. It was a great base for day trips to Florence, Parma, Maranello (Ferrari factory), Modena and Venice. Being a hot summer week, we particularly appreciated the very efficient air conditioning system. Another highlight of the week was a visit to the Gelato University (3 kms) and the time we spent there with Alberto whose love for life (and ice cream) is contagious. Great friendly welcome with a basket of self-produced fresh fruit and wine. Absolutely recommended.

EXCELLENT RENTAL, KEY LOCATION, NOT TO BE MISSED

  • 5 out of 5
I recently moved to Rome and do a lot of traveling for business - this is by far one of the best rentals I booked in Italy. It is clean, light-filled, roomy and very welcoming, much better than in the pictures. Its position in the immediate outskirts of Bologna makes it a great headquarters if you need to go to the fairground or drive around. Free private parking, free (well-working) internet, satellite tv. Great, helpful owners. Highly recommended.

Weekly market - groceries, clothing. We run an organic farm, so produce and wine are available in season on request. Nearby cities such as Modena, Maranello, Sant'Agata (Ducati, Ferrari, Lamborghini factories) are easily reachable both by car and train. Università del Gelato (Ice Cream Univerity) is just 10 minutes drive. The short distance to the local train station (400 mts.) allows visiting the major Northern/Central Italian cities in minutes (Bologna-Florence: 45 minutes; Milan: 55 minutes; Venice: 90 minutes; Ferrara, Ravenna: 45 minutes; etc.). We are in a key location! VERY CONVENIENT to Bologna Exhibit Center (Fiera District) - trafficky center can be by-passed! Winery and gourmet food tours can be easily scheduled (discounted prices) and so are traditional Bolognese cooking classes.
