Bologna apartment description

Al Parco – or how to be at the top in Bologna, the Italian capital of fashion, gourmet food and leisure. This beautiful, roomy, bright apartment is part of a brand new (February 2008) residential building situated in a spacious, well-served area facing a green and shady park, a small museum right on its side and plenty of little traditional stores in the vicinity.

With the city center, the railroad station and the Fiera District at walking distance, a newly-built shopping mall with an indoor swimming pool, a gym, bars, restaurants, stores and shops of all kind just around the corner, Al Parco qualifies as one of the most convenient rentals in Bologna. From here you can easily reach any spot in town: the bus stop is right by about 40 mts. and private parking is provided in the yard, which is completely fenced and 100% safe for the kids.

The apartment is a first floor (elevator) and overlooks the park with a very large (30 sq.mts.) terrace which makes a great spot for your al-fresco dining (garden furniture is provided). Very spacious (about 110 sq.mts.), safe (safety door, gates) and comfortable with high-quality fittings, Al Parco can accommodate up to 7-8 guests with two full bedrooms (one with two single beds, the other with three – all can be put together to form doubles), a sitting room with a double sofabed (a put-up bed can be added, if needed), two large bathrooms (one with a tub and a shower, the other with a shower), a large kitchen and a hallway.

All rooms give on the terrace and feature the beautiful view of the park. The kitchen is fully equipped with all possible cooking utensils. Linen, silverware, dishes etc. are provided.

Al Parco has been furnished at the top of love and zest with mostly antique, craft furniture and furnishing. Particular attention has been paid to the details, among which the many paintings, etchings and various pictures stand out for their beauty and taste.

Major appliances include a cooking range/oven, a microwave oven, a fridge/freezer, a dishwasher, an iron, a washing-machine, a hair dryer, a TV-DVD set and more. ADSL internet connection is available and included in the price. The apartment is air-conditioned.

With its very reasonable rates, we believe you can hardly find a better rental than Al Parco for your stay in Bologna. Inquire now! We look forward to having you over.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: We are a married couple - a teacher of English and a physicist - with two daughters and living in the immediate outskirts of Bologna. We like meeting new people and keep in touch, that's why we began renting out our property.

                      Why the Owner Chose Bologna:
                      We found this a perfect location - the center is an easy walking distance and so are the station and the fairground. Right in front the mall with the fitness facility and the pool (plus a good pizzeria!) makes this corner of town a really enjoyable one. Plus, of course, the park, a great bonus in the Spring, Summer and Fall both if one has children or not. Finally, the place is colorful and safe, lively yet quiet, especially at night.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Comfort is number one - nice, good quality furniture (some antiques), large spaces, a great terrace. Convenience of the location follows - we are at a stone's throw from everything, you can walk or take the bus, all is there in a few minutes. No fixed changeover day, schedule your stay for any period you want. Last but not least - functionality. Everything in the house is brand new and thoroughly checked before each rental.
