RAFFAELLO – ROOMY, LIGHT-FILLED, OWN LAWN & PARKING

Bologna City Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

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

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

A former two-storey, very welcoming typical early 1900’s Bolognese rural house, our 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 residence can comfortably accommodate 22-23 guests as a whole in three totally independent, self-sufficient units named after famous Italian painters – Raffaello (6 guests), Michelangelo (8 guests) and Leonardo (8-9 guests). It features its own private parking (free) and a pretty fenced yard (barbecue provided) which is safe for the kids and ideal to relax after a long sight-seeing or business day. The windows overlook both farming land and a couple of storage-industrial barns. A very effective double glazing, noiseproof insulation prevents from possible disturbances caused by the airport and the nearby industrial area. The property as a whole underwent total renovation in 2012 paying particular attention to decoration, details and functionality.

All units are air conditioned, feature their own independent heating system and firewood is available for the fireplaces. Cotto floors, timber ceilings and furniture chosen with love and zest mix with all the necessary modern appliances including a dishwasher, a washing machine, a microwave oven, a satellite TV with VCR/DVD and complimentary internet wi-fi connection. All the above to make your stay at our residence exactly like home – or even better!

Rooms are large, bright and charming, all units are independently accessible for total privacy. Unit layouts are:

- RAFFAELLO (accommodates up to 6 guests) 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. Furniture is mostly antique.

- MICHELANGELO (accommodates up to 8 guests). Ground floor: entryway, large living-dining room with a fireplace (1 double sofa bed), kitchen (all tools provided), bathroom with a Jacuzzi and a shower, laundry room, small storage room. Upper floor: one 3-single (or 1 queen-size + 1 single) bedroom, with own bathroom; one 2-single (or 1 queen-size) + 1 single sofa bedroom, with own en-suite bathroom.

- LEONARDO (accommodates up to 8-9 guests). Ground floor: large living room with a fireplace (1 double sofa bed), kitchen (all tools provided), bathroom. Upper floor: one bedroom (sleeps 6: 1 double + single bunk-bed, 1 two-single bunk-bed, one single bed), own en-suite bathroom; one double + single bedroom with own bathroom.

Units can be rented separately. The changeover day is flexible and the minimum stay is 4 nights.

With its location and general features, our residence is ideal for families or large groups, the corporate person, the tourist. Along with the center of Bologna, all the major northern-central Italian art cities are just a stone's throw away and easily reachable by train. It is also an ideal accommodation for the business person in need of a strategically-positioned headquarters that is close to the fairground, the airport and the highway. All guests will enjoy total comfort and absolute convenience – exactly as you 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 farmhouse 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 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 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 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 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.

The 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 both to the airport and the fairground.
