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.

Very clean, comfortable, and attractive apartment close to historical center of Bologna

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed staying here very much. This was my second time to stay in this apartment. Michelle is a generous and gracious hostess. She provided all the supplies for a very nice breakfast as well as other treats. She arranged for taxis and assisted in every way possible to be sure that I enjoyed my stay. Bologna is a beautiful and interesting city to visit with lots of unique character. It is a wonderful city for walking and also has excellent public transportation. It is a great base to use for visiting cities such as Ravenna, Ferrara, Parma, and many other places.

I am already looking forward to another return visit!

delightful apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Michelle's apartment for a week and she is a kind and very considerate hostess ...she had even baked a cake for our arrival and stocked the fridge with essentials! The apartment is quiet and secure although conveniently close to a main road. Only a short bus trip to the city centre, the apartment is in a typical Bologna neighbourhood with more than enough shops and a supermarket nearby. Bologna is a great city to visit and it is easy to travel to nearby towns by train.

Bologna courtyard apartment

  • 5 of 5

We found this small but beautifully equipped apartment perfect for our stay in Bologna and visits to nearby towns. Very private courtyard setting, close to transportation, shops and sights, with a hostess who was very helpful in orienting us to exploring Bologna. Michelle had useful information on getting around, very good places to dine, and what we might enjoy exploring. Her small first floor apartment was cosy and perfect for the two

of us. Highly recommended.

Comfortable bijou apartment

  • 5 of 5

Michelle is a warm and welcoming host. As previously mentioned some generous provisions are supplied which is great after a long journey especially for that cup of tea. The apartment is very comfortable for 2 with very good, secure wifi. It's in a quiet and secure area locked away from the main road. There is a bus stop just 2 minutes walk away. There's a Carrefour supermarket less than 10 minutes away. The area is well served by fresh produce shops, restaurants and especially bars for that refreshing glass of prosecco anytime. The city can be reached comfortably by foot but the buses are very frequent and handy after a long day. Bologna is a very interesting city and we enjoyed our stay here and can heartily recommend Michelle's apartment.

Merci beaucoup Michelle

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!
