“If you want to feel like you live in Bologna rather than just being a tourist, this cute little cottage is right for you”

Clara's cottage is very well-organized with great wi-fi reception, comfortable bed, large shower, wonderful garden entrance and a patio in the back. It is very quiet at night and I loved having the Cafe Mazzini just a block away for delicious coffee and pastries. When she found out I was traveling alone, she was quick to make me feel like part of her family! I would definitely come back to the Little Cottage!

“Wonderful oasis in the city of Bologna”
Reviewed May 1, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Clara's Little Cottage was the perfect place to be if you want to be in a quiet, tranquil, space that is steps as away from the bus stop, the market and a short bus or bike ride away from Bologna's wonderful sights.

Clara herself was a wonderful host - she thought of everything we could have needed, and even gave us a welcome gift of pesto made by her husband!

The Little Cottage can comfortably house a couple up to a group of four or five.

Great place and a great host. I'd stay here again!

Little Cottage is the perfect place to stay in Bologna. Clara was there to meet us and she was the perfect host; very helpful and so enthusiastic. Little Cottage is a charming property that has everything you need for your stay. We particularly liked how cool it was after the heat of the Bologna sun. It's got two terraces, back and front of the property, which were perfect to relax on with a glass of wine. Little Cottage is also in a perfect location; near parks, shops and the bus route to take you into the centre. I may have been a little tardy in sending my review but there's no doubt in my mind that I will be back here. Thank you, Clara, for a wonderful stay.

Thank you Andy and Sue for your kind review! Please do not apologies! To me the important thing is that you felt welcomed in Little Cottage and in Bologna too and that you bring to home a nice souvenir about it!
I'd love to meet you again in the future and I wish you all the best!
I'm also happy that you felt my enthusiasm in what I do because I think all jobs need enthusiasm to feel good and make feel better the others.
Many kind regards,
Clara

“Excellent”
Reviewed February 29, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I stayed at the little cottage for a week whilst in Bologna on business.

It is beautifully decorated, comfortable and well equipped. It is located in an area surrounded by deli's, restaurants, shops and cafe's, but at night their is silence so your sleep will not be disturbed.

The kitchen is well equipped and as you are surrounded by shops and deli's this makes life a bit easier.

To get into the centre of Bologna is about a 10 min walk away, walking under the traditional Bolognese arcades.

The owner, Clara, is very helpful and will assist in organising taxi's or anything similar if you are not an Italian speaker, she is an extremely nice person and if you are lucky enough to be able to book the little cottage when you are Bologna you would not regret it!

“Best Cottage in Bologna”
Reviewed November 20, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We had 4 glorious nights stay in the Cottage. The apartment presents exactly as the photo's show. A large bedroom with comfortable bed & access to a beautiful outdoor garden setting. A well equiped kitchen and well stocked supermarkets close by makes meal prep a delight. Bikes for our use & a bus stop only minutes down the road. Only 20 mins walk from all the attractions. WiFi & TV if required. Clara is a delight and adds to that feeling that you have found something very special on arrival in Bologna. We will definitely be staying at the "Little Cottage" again & would recommend friends do the same.

“Adorable cottage with great location and fantastic hostess”
Reviewed November 15, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We loved the Little Cottage in Bologna! The cottage is very comfortable with well appointed amenities and charming little touches everywhere. While centrally located with ease of access to City Center, the cottage itself was a quiet little sanctuary. The entrance provided a beautiful private garden that set the cottage back off the street away from the noise of the city. Clara is kind, thoughtful, helpful and generous. She went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed from slippers to guide bookes to city maps, and even gave us vaparetto tickets for our next destination, Venice.
Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend to all.

Well what can we say, it is the most enchanting place, truly beautiful. Carla couldn't have been more friendly or helpful.

The cottage itself was just lovely with every thinkable necessity thought of, very comfortable, tastefully decorated, very clean, ideal location for exploring.

If you are looking for that something special..... look no further, you wont be disappointed.

100% little gem

We will definitely be back.
