Gourmet's Apartment

Owned by a Gourmet for the Gourmet - Top Fingerlicking Quality Rental in Culinary Bologna.

Being Bologna the worldwide-renown gourmet capital of Italy and we, the property owners, deeply involved in good food, culinary art, etc., no other name for our apartment could be reasonably picked but this - Gourmet's. It is obviously a matter of taste and quality, and we believe this is what we are offering with this pretty, clean, quiet and very, very comfortable 2-room apartment located in the very heart of Bologna's Historical Center.

A part of a beautiful late-1700's former nunnery, a first floor with only two easy flights of steps to climb, Gourmet's accommodates up to 4 adults + 1 child in a pretty living-dining room (one double sofa bed), a large, light-filled, quiet bedroom overlooking a small inner garden (one double bed or two singles on request, plus a child's bed), a fully-stocked kitchen and an immaculate en-suite bathroom with a small laundry room at one end. Mattresses and frames are first quality, new and firm, sheets and towels are provided and included in the price, appliances are in great shape and the furniture as a whole is a tasteful early-1900's typical Bolognese. As we strongly believe in cleanliness, the whole house gets thoroughly sanitized after each stay. On top of all that, Gourmet's is air conditioned and features a washing machine, a dishwasher, free 24/24, 7/7 WiFi and LAN internet connection, more.

With the train station, the traditional Mercato delle Erbe food market, the vibrant Via del Pratello, Piazza Maggiore and all the major monuments within 10 minutes walk GOURMET'S undoubtedly qualifies as one of the most convenient accommodations in town. The area is colorful and very well served with stores and shops, dotted with pizzerias, small typical trattorias, pubs and much more. Even though the use of a car is absolutely useless in central Bologna and therefore is not recommended, parking can be found in the street or in the public garages nearby.

Book GOURMET'S today! With our price-quality ratio you could not get a better deal. And if you are into gourmet food and good eating, well... You could not find better landlords!

A wonderful stay in my temporary Bologna home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this charming apartment for 3 weeks and I was sad to leave.

I was in Bologna to study Italian and needed a place I could live that would be convenient and cozy. This apartment was perfect. While it was pretty close to the action it was very quiet. It was an easy 10-15 minute walk to the middle of downtown and there were plenty of bus lines close by. There were also plenty of places to eat nearby -- restaurants, pizzerias, gelato shops, and coffee shops and more. If I wanted to cook at home there were also three grocery stores close by. Renata and Roberto were great hosts. They even surprised me with gelato when they saw on my passport that it was my birthday :)

Great apartment in the heart of Bologna.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment and also the service from the owners, communication was excellent and the amount of little extras they had in the apartment for us when we arrived was exceptional, food, wine snacks etc. It was like staying in a very traditional Italian house and we will be sure to use again if in the area.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was as advertised and is the best VRBO rental we have stayed in! the apt is spotless and the kitchen was well stocked for our 5 night stay. As with other guests comments Roberto and Renata welcomed us with complimentary wine and a bowl of cherries. The beds were great and even with the hot weather the apt was kept cool with the the portable air conditioner

the location is close to the sites and for us it was also handy to the train station with a short 15 minute walk.

Roberto and Renata are wonderful people and it really shows in how they treat their guests.

Wonderful apartment. Fantastic people!

  • 5 of 5

The property was first class. The bedding excellent. The kitchen perfectly adequate. Well stocked cabinets with great snacks and everything for your cooking needs.

Washing machine came in handy on our 10 night stay.

5 minutes to Piazza Maggiore. 15 minutes to most anywhere in Bologna. This is truly Italian living. The best part though was how wonderful Roberto and Renata treated us and how helpful they were. I needed a dentist.. No problem. My wife needed a prescription filled..No problem. She needed a blood test.. No problem. We were very needy and they were simply amazing.

We will stay there again and you should too.

simply UAO

  • 5 of 5

un appartamentino veramente grazioso e raccolto, trovi davvero l'idea di intimità.Molto pulito e comodissimo come posizione a pochi passi dal centro città (piazza maggiore e le 2 torri) nonchè dalla stazione ferroviaria (15 ') ,e davvero silenzioso.Peccato che per motivi di lavoro sia stata solo 3 notti e non ho potuto godere appieno della città di Bologna,nè della gentilezza di Renata e Roberto,che abitano a fianco e che sono prodighi di consigli e indirizzi utili per trascorrere al meglio il soggiorno bolognese agli ospiti.Non vedo l'ora di tornare a Bologna e sicuramente ripeterò l'esperienza da Gourmet's house !

Owner's Response: Grazie Monica! Facciamo del nostro meglio per rendere il soggiorno piacevole soprattutto perché crediamo nel valore dell'ospitalità, specie in tempi come questi, aridi e basati solo sul denaro. Torna a goderti Bologna quando hai più tempo. Ciao! R&R

Perfect Choice

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the pleasure of staying in Roberto and Renata's apartment for two weeks. It is just as advertised, but I don't think the photos do it justice, particularly of the bedroom, which was larger than I thought it would be and included an alcove with a writing desk and a view of the lovely courtyard garden from the window, not to mention a wonderfully comfortable bed. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking in, as I'd planned, but with the nearby Mercado del Erbe with it's numerous delis, I ended up mostly using the stovetop and oven to reheat food bought there. The location is perfect, close enough to the central area but removed enough to afford peace and quiet. Roberto and Renata live next door and took me on a very thorough tour of the place upon arrival, showing me how everything worked. They had left a bottle of wine, a box of delicious biscotti, pasta, tomato sauce and coffee for my use. Outside the door in the common area to their apartment and the rental was a large basket of organic fruit which I was encouraged to choose from during my stay. They are readily available for any questions but totally unobtrusive. Emails to them prior to arrival were always answered promptly. If I ever have the opportunity to visit Bologna again, I hope to stay at their lovely apartment.

Car: not necessary

We are located in the old, typical Bolognese Via San Felice, a very short and pleasant under-the-arches walk to Piazza Maggiore, the very heart of Bologna's Historical Center.

The area is dotted with very nice shops (fashion, shoes, etc.) and stores (groceries, a supermarket, etc.), excellent restaurants and trattorias, wine bars, ice cream parlors, more. The vibrant, colorful Mercato delle Erbe is at a stone's throw.

No need for a car as the traffic in Bologna is hectic, there is no parking and public transportation is good and inexpensive - so why bother? A few garages, however, are nearby.
