The apartment is on the first floor of a renovated country house overlooking the 8th hole of the most picturesque golf course in Emilia Romagna, with lovely views of the historic centre of Bologna and the surrounding hills. The situation is so peaceful that a huge variety of birds live in the large garden in the springtime, but the airport and city centre are only 15 minutes' drive away. The perfect solution for combining a golf break with a cultural holiday, as Venice, Florence, Ferrara and Verona are within easy reach, as are the long, sandy beaches of the Adriatic coast. The apartment is air-conditioned, and has one double bedroom, a twin-bedroom and two single bedrooms, a spacious living room with kitchen area, and two small bathrooms, both with shower, but no bath. All floors are either parquet or tiles. Bologna is famous for its fantastic food, and the owners will be very happy to help you choose from the many reasonably priced 'trattorie' and farmhouse restaurants nearby.
Golf course details: The Bologna Golf Club was founded in 1959, and the course was designed by Cotton & Harris. It is par 72 for a total of 6,484 yards. The first nine holes were inaugurated in 1961, and the final nine holes in 1964. Since then improvements have been made by the architect Peter Alliss. The course is beautifully manicured, and varied, with wonderful views of the hills and the centre of Bologna. On a clear day you can see the snow-capped Alps to the north. The course is closed on Mondays, and at the weekends there are often competitions, but otherwise visitors are always welcome, and the course is extremely quiet during the week. In the summer months visitors playing the course can also use the outdoor swimming pool at the clubhouse.
We spent ten days and were very happy with this apartment. Upper half of a two family home. Our landlords were helpful and friendly. Both speak excellent English, of course the Mrs. is from England originally. There are several excellent restaurants in the countryside near this home.
The location is great and we can easily reach Bologna, Modena and the surrounding areas. It tooks us only 15 minutes from and to Bologna airport. The apartment is clean and well maintained, very quietly located in centre of the Golf club -- we did have very sleep after 3 nights staying in a noisy Bologna downtown apartment.
Judith is very kind and friendly -- taking guest as friend-- we can feel that.
The best meal we had is in La Cantina dei Sapori. It is only 5 km from the apartment.
Of course, we got this restaurant from Judith's well organized information book.
We Stayed for here for 11Days and although we do not play golf this was a magnificent setting a real gem of a place Judith and Alberto could not have been better hosts making us welcome from the very first day.
The apartment was well equipped with all that you could need for a comfortable stay including a washing machine which came in handy.Venice, Florence and Bologna are accessible from here with good train and road connections to most places there are several local and friendly shops and restaurants plus you can eat at the golf club.Ferrari ,Lamborghini and Ducati are all close by. We enjoyed it so much we will be back next year. We cannot recommend this highly enough.
Stayed here for a week at the end of June beginning of July. After conversing with Judith via email we finally arrived at their charming apartment. It was exactly as described and perfect for our family of 3. My husband is a big golfer and the opportunity to stay right on the course was a dream for him. He played there 4 times in seven days. Well maintained course and pool. Close to many cities, like Ravenna (one of my favourites), Ferrara and worth the drive to Pisa and Lucca. The situation of the apartment is very handy with a large grocery store about a 7 minute drive away. The kitchen had everything we needed to have some delicious meals and prepare picnics. Having the washing machine was a bonus as we were going to be travelling for another 11 days after leaving this lovely place. Would not hesitate to recommend staying here as a home base for visiting the Emilia-Romanga. Had cocktails and snacks with Alberto and Judith the night before we left. Nice family!
We enjoyed our stay very much in this apartment; the apartment was stylish and the facilities were very good. The apartment was tidy and clean.
The garden and surroundings of the house were well-maintained.
The owners were very friendly and specially helpful. We got much information from the whole area.
This place is wonderful.
We arrived in the middle of a very hot spell..upper 30's, which even by Australian standards is pretty warm. The air conditioning worked well, and was much appreciated. The folk at the golf club were very welcoming, and we enjoyed dinner there.
Judith and Alberto our hosts were most helpful and supportive. They made some great suggestions as to what to see in the area. There are a lot of wonderful cities like Ferrara and Ravenna close by. The day in Florence was also memorable.
The apartment was perfect for our fortnight in Italy. Everything worked well, and it was convenient for access to the major roads and motorways. Our Danish friends, not used to the heat, found the apartment most comfortable.
All in all an excellent holiday, and we have recomended it to several of our friends.....see youtube,
The apartment is in a secluded position, on the edge of the Appenine hills, but just 15 minutes' drive from the centre of Bologna, one of the most beautiful cities in Italy. Famous for its 38 kilometres of porticoes, which originated in the 11th century, Bologna is home to the oldest University in Europe, and the Basilica of San Petronio overlooking Piazza Maggiore is the fifth largest church in Italy. The Piazza is a huge pedestrian square surrounded by some of Bologna's most impressive medieval and Renaissance buildings, with attractive bars where you can sit and watch the fashion-conscious Italians go about their business. There are plenty of excellent restaurants to choose from - the famous 'tortellini' are a must. If you like the country life, just up the road from the apartment you can explore the 'Strada dei Vini e dei Sapori' a route through the hills with vineyards and farmhouse restaurants to visit. For motorbike enthusiasts, the Ducati factory is only ten minutes away.
Other Activities: A round of golf for visitors includes use of the club's outdoor swimming pool during the summer
