Property description

Totally refurbished in the Summer of 2012, Margherita Park – our apartment located next to beautiful Giardini Margherita, the main public park in Bologna – was expressly conceived as a superior quality rental to offer our guests top comfort in the greatest prestigious setting. We have therefore decorated this roomy, airy, quiet apartment in the most suitable manner: excellent furniture, mostly antique and craft; great original décor from different ages; collection silverware and dishes; top, state-of-the-art appliances and technology; and much more.

Located in the very Historical Center of Bologna, the beautiful, elegant Porta Castiglione area – a key location to all spots in town, the Fiera District, the railroad station, the city bus right at the corner – Margherita Park is the first floor of a nice Early-1900’s house with a view over Via Castiglione, Giardini Margherita and a pretty, shady inside garden. Two guarded public parking lots (Staveco and Giardini Margherita – only 6 Euro/day for the latter) are no more than 200 mts., and so are quite a few stores and shops, groceries, restaurants and pizzerias, ice cream parlours, pubs, etc.. The park main gate is in the back of the house and the beautiful hills of Bologna are reachable in a short stroll.

Extremely quiet, cozy, safe, decorated with the utmost love and zest, Margherita Garden can more than comfortably accommodate up to 10-11 guests as a whole. It is composed by three wide, light-and-bright bedrooms, a large living-dining room, a kitchen, two immaculate bathrooms (one en-suite) and a hallway. Bedding is as follows:

- Bedroom 1: one queen size + one child’s bed with en-suite bathroom;
- Bedroom 2: three single beds, two of which can be put together to make a queen-size;
- Bedroom 3: one very comfy queen-size sofabed and a single bed.
- Livingroom: one design queen-size sofabed.

Like the other rooms in the house, the large living-dining room (view over an inside garden and the park) is furnished and decorated with antiques and craft including a beautiful extensible antique table with seating for 12. The very bright kitchen is roomy and fully equipped with all kind of cooking tools, pans and pots, etc. and features a dishwasher, a washing machine, an oven and more. All kitchen, bedroom and bathroom linen are provided and included in the price.

Mixing its classy, elegant setting with convenience and the most advanced technologies, Margherita Park grants all its guest a real top stay. A ‘round-the-clock, well-working wifi internet connection, a digital tv, a portable stereo, a safety door, a hairdryer and much more are provided and included in the price. Margherita Park is completely air conditioned and features perfect soundproof, double-glazing windows. The house mascot – the Asian Green Elephant in the livingroom – will grant you a prosperous, fun and relaxing stay in Bologna, the Italian capital of gourmet food, fun and nightlife.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: I am a mature professional, married, two children. A friendly person myself, I like meeting people and make new acquaintances.

Why Bologna:
It is centrally-located, of a great style per se, typical of some Early-1900's Bologna good middle class, with a lot of flavour in it. It was love at first sight when the realtor showed me this roomy, charming apartment, filled with light and positive feelings. As I had the vacation rental business in mind I found this property to be perfectly fitting, so I immediately bought it. Remodeling, furnishing and decorating to that purpose took a lot of time and quasi-artistic effort, but we finally succeeded (thanks for the wonderful antiques, Mom!).

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
When I first saw this apartment its size, its ideal layout and the view over the garden and the park really impressed me. I loved the chance to accommodate at the best of comfort and style large families, with or without children, or a group of friends travelling together. As for the furniture and the decor I had quite a few beautiful stuff handy (thanks again, Mom!), real antiques and craft that would perfectly fit. My mind immediately pictured what I always wanted and was about to do - refurbish this apartment to make my idea turn into reality and bring it to the top of all rentals in Bologna. Now here's Margherita Park!
