Clara’s Little Cottage is a good way to feel like a local. Everything is close by and the local buses go right past your door. There are supermarkets, cafes, a chemist, banks and restaurants within easy walking distance. The centre of Bologne is a short bus ride or brisk walk away. We enjoyed the flexibilty of being able to cook for ourselves and use the fresh local produce if we didn’t feel like eating out. There is even a shop across the road where you can buy fresh, homemade food to reheat. The gelateria close by makes divine gelati and we found ourselves indulging too many times. The area is busy but inside it is cosy and quiet.
Little Cottage was quite comfortable but I must be honest and say there are some things that need attention. We were there for two weeks and were not able to change our sheets. Although there was a washing machine, there was no dryer or line to be able to hang the sheets out to dry. This being said, I am sure if I had called Clara she would have offered to help. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were flat and lifeless and badly need replacing. The sofa in the living room was extremely uncomfortable to sit on for any length of time and I think it needs to be replaced, too.
Apart from that we did enjoy our time and freedom at Little Cottage.
Loved the little cottage! The photos dont do it justice it is very spacious. It snowed one of the days we were there but the heating was so amazing we didnt want to leave...
But thankfully we did because Bologna is amazing and the food is to die for! ❤️
Lovely place, exactly as seen in the photos. It is close to the city so great for exploring but also in a quiet location and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. There are a few supermarkets close by for buying supplies. Clara met us when we arrived, she is very friendly and helpful, we also saw her at her Little Shop in the city
Lovely spot about 30 minute walk into wonderful Bologna! Lots of buses available right outside property. Excellent communication throughout by Clara who provided a thorough orientation upon arrival including great places to eat. We loved Little Cottage and Bologna and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this holiday rental as a great base to explore this lovely city!
We booked little cottage in Bologna for 7 nights for 2 people - my husband and myself.
On the way to the accommodation from the Bologna central station we used Taxi costed us around 15 euros but to Train station can be made by bus 1.5euros pp. The accommodation location was also fantastic - Grocery store is 5minutes walking distance and to City centre is 20 minutes walk. The rooms were so clean and comfortable and rooms have been decorated with nice furniture. Securiy was perfect, you can leave things in the room with no problem at all.
I highly recommend this accommodation for people wish to stay in Bologna :)
We arrived earlier than the check in time but Clara went out of her way to enable us to get in. She really couldn't have been more helpful with the area, things to do, even booking taxis for us in the mornings to get to the train station.
The cottage isn't in the main town but it is a pleasant walk along the porticoed streets, seeing the sights.There is everything that you would need at the cottage, it is comfortable, beautifully decorated (Clara's own pictures are lovely) and the little courtyards were delightful to sit in in the evening. We had an amazing stay in Bologna and Clara is an exceptional hostess.
