The apartment is lovely, spacious and comfortable. When we arrived it had been prepared like a show home.
We flew into Pisa on a Sunday lunchtime and it was an easy drive over to Bologna. We were met by Pier Paolo and Paula who are so friendly and helpful. I had already been in contact to ask about where best to get some basic foodstuffs on a Sunday afternoon and Pier Paolo had kindly asked me to send him a shopping list so he could get us what we needed that morning. In fact we didn’t need much as he already provided a welcome pack of fruit, water, coffee, etc.
In general this just epitomised the care and attention he has taken to being such a great host.
The apartment itself is on the third floor and there is a lift. It looks out on to trees and gardens. There is secure private parking and the likes of the supermarket is only a few minutes drive away.
Right outside the complex is the number 90 bus stop which will take you right into the centre of Bologna. I think the service stops mid evening although there is another bus to nearby. However, for day trips in it is fantastic for just €1.50 each way and no worries about parking, the ZTL and having a glass of wine or two. It’s about 20 minutes journey into town.
It was our first trip to Bologna and we loved it. We would certainly stay here again.
Thanks again for a great stay Pier Paolo.
If you like rural Italy this is a good choice. The property as large and has all the facilities you would expect with the added bonus of a helpful neighbour to meet and greet and deal with the pool. The owner provides lots of information and is very responsive. The views are spectacular and Dozza is a short drive away and is well worth a visit. Off road parking is fine. There are lots of books to choose from and a few toys and games. It comfortably sleeps 4 adults and 4 children. Overall I would recommend this property to those seeking a simple and quiet retreat away from it all.
