About the property

ROOMY! Up to 11 guests in 3 bdms + living-dining rm, 2 baths. Parkview.

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.

About Proprietari Associati Managing Company

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

Proprietari Associati Managing Company purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Proprietari Associati Managing Company chose Emilia Romagna

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!).

What makes this apartment unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Siamo stati per 10 giorni in questo bellissimo appartamento, 8 persone. Lo raccomandiamo per pulizia, completezza, ampiezza delle stanze e luminosità generale. Inoltre, la localizzazione è perfetta: alle porte del centro storico, 15 minuti circa di passeggiata fino in piazza Maggiore, sotto i portici, tutto a portata di mano, negozi, ristoranti, gelaterie (una mondiale!). In più ci sono ben 3 parcheggi agibili e a costo bassissimo proprio dietro casa. Assolutamente da provare.

Margherita Park

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with some family members, stayed in Margherita Park for one month and the entire month was a delight. The apartment is located in very convenient area. A 24 hour supermarket is right around the corner, Giardinia Margherita is steps away from the front door, and the bus stops that got us to the train station or the center of town were right outside the door or on the corner. Most of the time, we skipped the busses and walked to town. What a delightful 15 minute walk! We also walked to the train. Even though this walk was a bit longer (25 minutes), by going through the city center, the walk was always delightful.

The apartment was clean and had everything we needed to be comfortable. The beds were comfortable and because there are three bedrooms everyone had the privacy they needed. The kitchen was well supplied so that our home cooked meals were easy to prepare. Eugene greeted us upon arrival and was very gracious and accommodating. We only had to call him once during our visit to ask a transportation question and he was easy to get in touch with.

We would definitely consider staying at Margherita Park again and can only hope that someday we can return there and to beautiful Bologna.

La base idéale pour visiter Bologne

  • 5 of 5

Pour notre premier séjour à Bologne, nous ne pouvions pas trouver meilleur emplacement, meilleur environnement et meilleur accueil! L''appartement luxueusement équipé, spacieux et très lumineux est la base idéale pour visiter la vile à pieds et en transports en commun. Le propriétaire est charmant et très disponible pour nous aider à découvrir les sites incontournables, mais aussi les adresses plus confidentielles et les lieux insolites. Merci encore pour le merveilleux séjour que nous avons passé dans des conditions optimales. Nous sommes ravis.

Eight adults and my grandson, we had a fantastic holiday in Italy.

Based in Margherita Park for eight nights, we had the opportunity to visit not only the Bologna city and nearby villages but also Frienze and Venice.

Owner/Manager Eugenio provided us an excellent service. He even helped us in finding our towed car.

Location, layout, ameneties of the apartment are excellent.

We would certainly recommend this property to our friends/relatives and if we re-visit Bologna, we would like to stay in Margherita Park again.

Thank you Eugenio.

Very Smelly

  • 2 of 5

I can't recommend the Margherita Park apartment, though the apartment was lovely and in a good location for visiting Bologna. We had some positives and some real negatives.

1. The apartment was beautifully renovated

2. Eugenio, the owner, was more than helpful with any request we had.

3. The location was a short walk from the center of the old town.


1. The apartment had an unhealthy smell of sewer that permeated throughout the unit at any given time. We had to leave the apartment. This happened many times during our 3 night stay. Sometimes in the middle of the night.

2. The people living upstairs decided to fight all night and move furniture at the same time. Also I think they walked in stilettos at all times.

If the smell and the fighting is something you don't mind then this apartment may be for you!

Owner's Response: Thank you. Both the smell and the noise were obviously occasional. The earlier was fixed immediately (there was a problem in the city sewer system) and the latter (fight between husband and wife) ended up in a divorce. The apartment is now back to its high standard as shown in the many other reviews.
