About Michelle

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

Why Michelle chose Bologna City

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.

Loved our stay in this Bologna flat1

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect Bologna Apartment

  • 5 of 5

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!

It's really a 10!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Fantastic Bologna Experience

  • 5 of 5

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.

Very Central

  • 5 of 5

This was a very compact and efficient apartment. Close to everything. Michelle was most helpful with information on things to see and do as well as restaurants of note. Though there was no washer in the apartment Michelle offered, and we took her up on it,to wash our cloths. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lots of goodies for breakfast left in the fridge was much appreciated.

A great stay in Bologna

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in a number of VRBO apartments in Europe and have always had pleasant experiences. This was no exception. We were greeted by a charming and attentive hostess who had equipped our fridge with everything needed for a lovely stay as well as providing a lemon cake and bowl of fruit. The apartment was spotlessly clean and we wanted for nothing. It is a 20 minute walk to the main centre and the 20 and D bus are just outside the door which take you to the town centre as well as the Station. There is a great Carrefour supermarket 5 mins walk away and several restaurants close by. The apartment building is set in a private gated community so we felt very safe and enjoyed the availability of a courtyard garden to sit in. The owner lives upstairs and is happy to be available to answer any questions or even do the washing for you! Thank you, Michelle for your wonderfully warm welcome.
