Overview

Castel Maggiore Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms,4 sleeps,1 bathroom, living room-kitchen, 1000 square meters garden

The apartment is in the quiet countryside with a large garden and A PRIVATE PARKING SITE WITHIN FEW METERS, very convenient for loading and unloading baggage . It is located on the ground floor, which consists of an entrance, two bedrooms with air conditioning, one bathroom and a living room-kitchen. The spacious living room-kitchen guarantees excellent habitability, particularly for medium length stays. It can accommodate up to 4 people and 1 baby (2 in traditional beds, 2 in a double bed, 1 baby in a cot.). The wi-fi internet connection is free. In the spring and summer in the garden you can cook with barbecue, eat, get tanned or simply relax in the silence of the countryside. We provide free Tom Tom GPS during your stay.

Why did I write eco house? Many of us are living in an ECOLOGIST way when we are at home. I think it is good to continue to take care of our planet on holiday too. The eco facts about this house: 1) during daylight the elecritricity comes from a photovoltaic system situated on the roof installed in 2011. 2) Hot water comes from solar panels installed in 2013. During colder season thermal insulation applied in 2014 lowers the need of heating and provides more uniform temperatures throughout the space. 4) Guests are kindly invited to divide the waste in order to recycle paper, glass, metal and plastic.

If you have questions, I guarantee QUICK ANSWERS.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We recommend this house for everyone who’s looking for a restful location to enjoy typical aspects of Italy. The house is very well accommodated, big rooms, a very extensive kitchen with all required material and everything is clean and working properly, a big garden and a very peacefull environment (side street without traffic). The owner and his family live upstaires and are very helpful, but at the same time giving you the privacy you need. If you didn’t have time to prepare for all the trips you want to make, no problem, Marco has made a documentation map with all the information you need about possible trips in the neighbourhood, and gives you all the tips you need during your stay.

Besides the accommodation, the most important advantage of the house is its location. You are in less then half an hour in the centre of Bologna (which is a fantastic city, although not popular for tourists, which is an advantage is you don’t like too much of them), nearby Ferrara (city with a beautifull historical centre) and Parma (a very charming city with of course the sublime prosciutto). Also very interesting places to visit which are a farder away but still less than 1,5 hour driving are Venice and Verona.

If you have little children (we were there with our daughter of 13 months), the place is perfect, the house is well accommodated to it, and everywhere you go to or everybody you meet, is child-minded (restaurants, swimming pool, super market, etc).

Last but not least, if you want to enjoy good Italian food, in this region of Italy, the food is great.

Mid Italy stay

We had wonderful visits to Venice, Florence and Ferrara during our stay and in the evening it was really nice to come home to the quiet and peace in this wonderful home. Very clean and quiet surroundings, especially the birds singing in the morning. Thank you Marco and family.

Excelentes vacaciones

  • 5 of 5
La casa que ofrecen Marco y su familia presenta todas las ventajas para unas vacaciones familiares. Está muy bien equipada (aire acondicionado, lavavajillas...) y es muy espaciosa.

Lo mejor para nosotros fue que estaba estratégicamente situada casi en el centro de todo: equidistante de Venecia y de Florencia, cerca de Ferrara, al lado de Bolonia, y a poco más de una hora de las playas del delta del Po, de Rávena y de Rimini. El pueblo tiene estación de tren, imprescindible para ir a las grandes ciudades.
Marco es muy amable y la información que ofrece es de mucha utilidad

Pleasant Holiday flat near Bologna

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The flat was clean and very well equipped. The beds were very comfortable and there was air con if needed. There was plenty of space for the four of us and Marco was an excellent host.
Although the house is a little out the way, this is no problem at all if you have a car. Indeed it is quite centrally placed with good access to Venice (via the train 90 mins), the mountains, with a lovely resort at Sestola and the seaside is only one hour away.
The nearby cities of Ferrara and Bologna have a lot to offer, but it is good after a day out to return to the tranquility of the countryside. There is a very nice outdoor swimming complex within 20 mins which the children particularly enjoyed.
I would thoroughly recommed this flat as a good base for touring the surrounding area and finding some of the delights of the region.

The property is in the countryside between Bologna and Ferrara.

There's a path that from the house leads to a park with woods, lake and pic-nic site, ideal for walking and bird watching.

In Funo there is a local railway station.It permits to travel easily to Ferrara, Padova, Venice or Bologna.

The highway (A13) is only 3 km away so this house is a good starting point for visiting many cities: Bologna (19 km.), Ferrara (44 km), Ravenna (90km), Padova(110km) , Florence (130 km), Venice (150km).

It takes one hour by car to go to the seaside (Lidi Ferraresi beaches 90km).

The Appennini Mountains are 90 km away (Sestola 1.000 m. above sea level, nice for skiing in winter).

You can enjoy yourself in a great amusement park called Mirabilandia which is 95 km away.

Also excellent solution of accommodation for Bologna Fair Exhibition Centre (Bologna fiere) , Ferrara fiere or Centergross.
