Bologna farmhouse description

RAFFAELLO – Roomy, light-and-bright, own lawn and parking.

A former two-storey, very welcoming typical early 1900’s Bolognese rural house, our residence is located in the Calderara section of Bologna, only a few kilometers from the center of town. It benefits from good public transportation connections (suburban train at 300 mts – 8 minutes to the center!) and is extremely convenient to the airport and the fairground.

The residence can comfortably accommodate 22-23 guests as a whole in three totally independent, self-sufficient units named after famous Italian painters – Raffaello (6 guests), Michelangelo (8 guests) and Leonardo (8-9 guests). It features its own private parking (free) and a pretty fenced yard (barbecue provided) which is safe for the kids and ideal to relax after a long sight-seeing or business day. The windows overlook both farming land and a couple of storage-industrial barns. A very effective double glazing, noiseproof insulation prevents from possible disturbances caused by the airport and the nearby industrial area. The property as a whole underwent total renovation in 2012 paying particular attention to decoration, details and functionality.

All units are air conditioned, feature their own independent heating system and firewood is available for the fireplaces. Cotto floors, timber ceilings and furniture chosen with love and zest mix with all the necessary modern appliances including a dishwasher, a washing machine, a microwave oven, a satellite TV with VCR/DVD and complimentary internet wi-fi connection. All the above to make your stay at our residence exactly like home – or even better!

Rooms are large, bright and charming, all units are independently accessible for total privacy. Unit layouts are:

- RAFFAELLO (accommodates up to 6 guests) Ground floor: large living-dining room (1 double sofa bed) with a fireplace, kitchen (all tools provided), bathroom. Upper floor: 2 bedrooms (room 1: 2 single beds; room 2: 1 double), bathroom. Furniture is mostly antique.

- MICHELANGELO (accommodates up to 8 guests). Ground floor: entryway, large living-dining room with a fireplace (1 double sofa bed), kitchen (all tools provided), bathroom with a Jacuzzi and a shower, laundry room, small storage room. Upper floor: one 3-single (or 1 queen-size + 1 single) bedroom, with own bathroom; one 2-single (or 1 queen-size) + 1 single sofa bedroom, with own en-suite bathroom.

- LEONARDO (accommodates up to 8-9 guests). Ground floor: large living room with a fireplace (1 double sofa bed), kitchen (all tools provided), bathroom. Upper floor: one bedroom (sleeps 6: 1 double + single bunk-bed, 1 two-single bunk-bed, one single bed), own en-suite bathroom; one double + single bedroom with own bathroom.

Units can be rented separately. The changeover day is flexible and the minimum stay is 4 nights.

With its location and general features, our residence is ideal for families or large groups, the corporate person, the tourist. Along with the center of Bologna, all the major northern-central Italian art cities are just a stone's throw away and easily reachable by train. It is also an ideal accommodation for the business person in need of a strategically-positioned headquarters that is close to the fairground, the airport and the highway. All guests will enjoy total comfort and absolute convenience – exactly as you wish.

                      Car: Recommended

                      Weekly market - groceries, clothing. We run an organic farm, so produce and wine are available in season on request. Nearby cities such as Modena, Maranello, Sant'Agata (Ducati, Ferrari, Lamborghini factories) are easily reachable both by car and train. Università del Gelato (Ice Cream Univerity) is just 10 minutes drive. The short distance to the local train station (400 mts.) allows visiting the major Northern/Central Italian cities in minutes (Bologna-Florence: 45 minutes; Milan: 55 minutes; Venice: 90 minutes; Ferrara, Ravenna: 45 minutes; etc.). We are in a key location! VERY CONVENIENT to Bologna Exhibit Center (Fiera District) - trafficky center can be by-passed! Winery and gourmet food tours can be easily scheduled (discounted prices) and so are traditional Bolognese cooking classes.

                      The Residence is located in the Calderara section of Bologna, only a few kilometers from the center of town. It benefits from good public transportation connections (suburban train at 300 mts – 8 minutes to the center!) and is extremely convenient both to the airport and the fairground.

                      Year Purchased: 1989

                      About the owner: I am a retired entrepreneur in my early 60's, married, two children. A true passion for photography and traveling, I help my wife Anna in her organic farming activity (the farm is walking distance to the house). I lived in Canada for a while and love making friends from all over the world.

                      Why the Owner Chose Bologna:
                      We bought this house when we decided to leave the busy center for something closer to our way of living, which was definitely countryside-oriented. After a short stay here we bought another house nearby - where we presently live - and passed this one onto our children. Now the children are married and moved elsewhere, so we decided to turn the house into a short-stay rental.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                      It was away from it all and a typical Early-1900's Bolognese country house, so we fell in love with it and its warm, family atmosphere.
