“Couldn't be better!”
Reviewed 15 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I guess you've reached this page because you've already decided to go for self-catering. It's a great way to experience a town/city while keeping the cost down - and you can pretend for a few days that you are an ordinary resident and not just a tourist.

Pietro's apartment really could not be better. It has all the facilities you need, it's well looked after and spotlessly clean. The historic centre of the city is just a pleasant fifteen minute walk away - or a very quick bus ride.. Travelling to and from the airport is easy using the buses that stop nearby. It takes about twenty minutes on the bus to get to the railway station, from which you can quickly and cheaply get to Parma, Modena, Ferrara and Ravenna. There is a fantastic trattoria a few minutes along the same street as the apartment - book in advance as it gets very busy. The Coop, about 5 minutes walk away, has all the provisions you'll need, though visit the Quadrilatero market area for top quality fresh produce.

Bologna is a great place to visit. If you try seeing everything it would take weeks, by which time you'd have already maxed out on church interiors and frescoes. So, my advice is to be selective and plan in advance what you'd like to see ... but, whatever you do, don't miss the terracotta sculptures in Santa Maria della Vita. Travelling out to the nearby towns I've already mentioned is easy and very rewarding. Again you'll need to plan what to see ... but don't miss the mosaics in Ravenna or the food market in Modena.

Just a word about the owner (Pietro/Paolo); he knows everything about Bologna and is desperate to share his knowledge with you. We took his advice on where to eat and on how to get to the Basilica Santuario della Madonna di San Luca (by bus, don't walk!). Pietro is a charming man and a pleasure to have met.

“Great Stay”

We stayed here for a month last autumn and enjoyed it very much. Paolo could not have been nicer or more willing to do whatever he could to make our stay comfortable. We would stay here again - the location was just what we wanted in a neighborhood and close to the sights in Bologna and the bus to the train station to go other places. Thank you to Paulo for all he did to make our trip so good. Hope we get to come back.

From the minute we met Paolo at the entrance to the building, until the minute we left. Pietros was a gem.

Paolo, is a lovely man, very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Recommended some great places to eat.

Self contained, secure. Close to restaurants, supermarkets and attractions.

Fully equipped kitchen with all you would need for a quick meal. Lots of thoughtful details gone into equipping the place.
