flat . Living room, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen.
A charming self-contained flat, which has been recently renovated, situated in a typical bolognaise building of the late 19th century. It is at the end of a private street, 400 meters from Porta Saragozza and 20 minute walk from Piazza Maggiore.
The flat is on the first floor and is composed of a double-bedroom, a sitting room with a sofa-bed, an equipped kitchen and a bath with a shower. There is free internet and WiFi connection, fans on the ceiling and TV.
The flat is near grocery stores, restaurants, public gardens and bus-stops. We live in the flat above. During the summer you can relax or have a drink in the charming internal court yard after having visited the town.
The flat is located ten minutes from the historic city center. The bus stop is just forty meters from the door entrance. Bologna is located about two hours by train from Venice, one hour from Florence. Suggested daily trip are possible also to Ferrara (half hour by train), Ravenna (about forty minutes by train), Mantua, Parma, Padua.
We live in the apartment on the higher floor, we are in a typical bolognese neighborhood. The area is 100% safe and perfectly serviced by public transportation, with plenty of stores, etc. nearby. Quiet location, apartment.
Michelle purchased this apartment in 2008
The apartment is easily reachable from both the airport and the train station and convenient to all spots in town. The Bologna public transportation system gets you everywhere quickly and inexpensively (ticket: 1€/person/1 hour) - the stop is just 60 mts. and buses run around the clock. Florence, Venice, Ferrara, Mantua, Milan, the Adriatic shore etc. can be easily and inexpensively visited by train in minutes. The hills are at walking distance and the San Luca hilltop cathedral can be reached in about 40 minutes walking.
We found this small but beautifully equipped apartment perfect for our stay in Bologna and visits to nearby towns. Very private courtyard setting, close to transportation, shops and sights, with a hostess who was very helpful in orienting us to exploring Bologna. Michelle had useful information on getting around, very good places to dine, and what we might enjoy exploring. Her small first floor apartment was cosy and perfect for the two
of us. Highly recommended.
Michelle is a warm and welcoming host. As previously mentioned some generous provisions are supplied which is great after a long journey especially for that cup of tea. The apartment is very comfortable for 2 with very good, secure wifi. It's in a quiet and secure area locked away from the main road. There is a bus stop just 2 minutes walk away. There's a Carrefour supermarket less than 10 minutes away. The area is well served by fresh produce shops, restaurants and especially bars for that refreshing glass of prosecco anytime. The city can be reached comfortably by foot but the buses are very frequent and handy after a long day. Bologna is a very interesting city and we enjoyed our stay here and can heartily recommend Michelle's apartment.
Merci beaucoup Michelle

A cute and comfortable flat with all that's needed for travelers eager to enjoy Bologna. It has the advantages of a down to earth neighborhood as well as close proximity to a beautiful park in one direction and all the city has to offer in the other. Very well located for restaurants, City Center, museums, shopping, and everything that one enjoys in Bologna. Michelle, the proprietor, is incredibly welcoming and thoughtful. The groceries she provided served as our breakfast for three days and snack times as well! The stay was completely hassle-free, and Michelle went out of her way to accommodate our schedule and answer our questions. I will recommend this rental to anyone interested. What a treat overall!
This is a perfect Bologna apartment. It is comfortable, attractive, and spotlessly clean. It is located on a quiet street and overlooks a lovely patio garden. The apartment is furnished with everything you could possibly need during your visit. This included a well-stocked kitchen with fresh fruit, a delicious torte, and groceries to prepare breakfast. Michelle was always available to answer any questions or help with travel arrangements. The apartment is about a 20 minute walk to the historic center and 5 minutes from public transportation. The neighborhood has lots of good restaurants, delicatessens, and delightful shops. Bologna is a fascinating city to explore and a great base for visiting the other beautiful historical cities nearby. I have rented several apartments in Bologna over the past few years. This is my favorite. I am already planning my return visit next year. Michelle is a perfect hostess in very way and this is a great apartment!
If We could, we would rate this flat as a #10! It was in a perfect location - off the main st. And very private yet 5 min walking distance to public transportation. However we walked everywhere and it was a lovely 20 minute walk to the historic center. It was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated and had a very pretty outside patio as well Michelle was the most perfect host. She made reservations for us, left us a well stalked kitchen(delicious torte, Fresh fruit bowl, milk, yogurt, juice, cereal, jams, bread, coffee pods etc) and washed, dried and folded our laundry! She also left us much information about the sites to see. We felt so welcomed and very spoiled. Thank you Michelle! We hope to stay with you again!
The Flat was spotlessly clean and tastefully furnished providing us with the perfect base for our first visit to Bologna. Our host was most welcoming and ensured we had everything we needed to make it a memorable stay. There was an Italian cake and a bowl of fruit awaiting us on our arrival which was a lovely welcoming touch, also some grocery provisions to help us settle in after our long journey. During our stay our host was always available to us for any information we required including helping us with printing out train tickets and airline boarding passes. It was ideally located for visiting Bologna either on the bus or walking.This was our first visit to Bologna and we are now planning another visit in 2016 - a most memorable and enjoyable holiday.
