Bologna City House Rental Photos and Description

8-9 guests in 2 bedrooms + livingroom, 3 bathrooms. Fireplace. Great yard.

LEONARDO – Roomy, Light-filled, Own Lawn & Parking, WiFi, AC, SatTv, More

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.

About Alberto

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

Why Alberto chose Bologna City

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

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.

Great Easter break

  • 5 of 5
Great house, great location, great hosts. Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed our Easter break at Alberto and Anna's place. The house is charming, well-appointed, elegantly furnished. Good sleep accommodations, great bathrooms, a charming, well- equipped kitchen, great living space. Wish we had more time to enjoy the house and grounds, but the location was so good, we were on the go all time. The hosts, Alberto and Anna, are very supportive and willing to recommend great local options. Would highly recommend a stay here. Just lovely!

Ideal for a family, groups

  • 5 of 5
Hi from Belgium! We stayed at this villa for 10 days and enjoyed it. It provided plenty of room for our family of 5 both inside and outside, with a fabulous yard our children highly enjoyed. The apartment was clean, light filled, well kept. Everything was in perfect working order and the owner provided immediate assistance when we needed info on the area - he also took us to his own doctor as my wife was feeling sick. Bologna is only 8 minutes by subway, the station at 300 mts or so. It is indeed a strategic location if you have a car - plenty of parking (free) and no hassle with the city traffic. We loved staying here and will definitely come back.

Excellent accommodation close to Bologna

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 2,5 months at Toretta residence and this place must be highly recommended with great location in Bologna close to airport and shopping center all gated and secure in a small community. A warm welcome and excellent service throughout entire stay, anything that was broken or malfunctioning was immediately fixed without discussion. Safe location with off street car parking and Bargellino-Calderara train station within just 5 minutes walking distance. Own garden and all household equipment needed for a pleasant and comfortable stay. The only downside we found was the noise from airplanes approaching/taking off Bologna airport and also nearby industries. Despite this we would definitely stay here next time we are in Bologna. Rating total experience/value for money: 4,5 out of 5 possible.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! We look forward to your next stay with us. For what the noise is concerned, please note that there are no night flights and the inside of the house is perfectly noiseproof. All in all, the house is absolutely quieter than any downtown traffic-plagued rental - we are in the countryside, after all... ;-)

Excellent accommodation - Great hosts!

  • 5 of 5
This rental couldn't have been more perfect for us. It was just as lovely as it appears in the photos - actually more - and very convenient to the central part of Bologna as the suburban train line is walking distance and the ride to the center is only 8 minutes. Everything we needed to set up housekeeping was in the apartment when we arrived and we were greeted by a couple of self-produced wine bottles and some delicious fresh fruit from Alberto and Anna's organic farm. The air conditioning worked beautifully and efficiently as did everything else in the apartment. The house is quiet and removed from the street, the yard is great. We felt safe and secure at all times. We are recommending this villa to all our traveling friends and surely hope to rent it again ourselves. Great landlords - all promises and commitments were amicably honored, and they also took us out for dinner!

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.
