The little cottage is well located in a residential neighborhood. You can walk to historic center in less than 20 minutes and can explore the neighborhood close by as well. Clara provides information and found is a private tour guide who was great. We were 3 adults A couple and a friend. The bedroom is fine and quiet and large. But the remainder of sleeping area is a small loft and a couch which is a sofa bed in the mixing space. Great to have kitchen and outdoor space. As others said pillows very flat and sofa not comfortable. As we are close friends it worked 5 sleeping would be tight unless s family perhaps. Yet it is cute and perfect for a couple who is also interested to cook and hang out in outdoor spaces. Thank you Clara
Clara’s Little Cottage is a good way to feel like a local. Everything is close by and the local buses go right past your door. There are supermarkets, cafes, a chemist, banks and restaurants within easy walking distance. The centre of Bologne is a short bus ride or brisk walk away. We enjoyed the flexibilty of being able to cook for ourselves and use the fresh local produce if we didn’t feel like eating out. There is even a shop across the road where you can buy fresh, homemade food to reheat. The gelateria close by makes divine gelati and we found ourselves indulging too many times. The area is busy but inside it is cosy and quiet.
Little Cottage was quite comfortable but I must be honest and say there are some things that need attention. We were there for two weeks and were not able to change our sheets. Although there was a washing machine, there was no dryer or line to be able to hang the sheets out to dry. This being said, I am sure if I had called Clara she would have offered to help. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were flat and lifeless and badly need replacing. The sofa in the living room was extremely uncomfortable to sit on for any length of time and I think it needs to be replaced, too.
Apart from that we did enjoy our time and freedom at Little Cottage.
Loved the little cottage! The photos dont do it justice it is very spacious. It snowed one of the days we were there but the heating was so amazing we didnt want to leave...
But thankfully we did because Bologna is amazing and the food is to die for! ❤️
Lovely place, exactly as seen in the photos. It is close to the city so great for exploring but also in a quiet location and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. There are a few supermarkets close by for buying supplies. Clara met us when we arrived, she is very friendly and helpful, we also saw her at her Little Shop in the city
Lovely spot about 30 minute walk into wonderful Bologna! Lots of buses available right outside property. Excellent communication throughout by Clara who provided a thorough orientation upon arrival including great places to eat. We loved Little Cottage and Bologna and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this holiday rental as a great base to explore this lovely city!
