     Description 


A former two-storey, very welcoming typical early 1900’s Bolognese
rural house, Torretta 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.

Torretta 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
recently 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 Torretta Residence exactly like home - or even better!

TESTIMONIALS ==

"Hi from Belgium! We stayed at this villa for 10 days and enjoyed it.
It provided plenty of room for our family of 5 both inside and
outside, with a fabulous yard our children highly enjoyed. The
apartment was clean, light filled, well kept. Everything was in
perfect working order and the owner provided immediate assistance when
we needed info on the area - he also took us to his own doctor as my
wife was feeling sick. Bologna is only 8 minutes by subway, the
station at 300 mts or so. It is indeed a strategic location if you
have a car - plenty of parking (free) and no hassle with the city
traffic. We loved staying here and will definitely come back."
(Philippe D., Belgium)

"We stayed 2,5 months at Toretta residence and this place must be
highly recommended with great location in Bologna close to airport and
shopping center all gated and secure in a small community. A warm
welcome and excellent service throughout entire stay, anything that
was broken or malfunctioning was immediately fixed without discussion.
Safe location with off street car parking and Bargellino-Calderara
train station within just 5 minutes walking distance. Own garden and
all household equipment needed for a pleasant and comfortable stay.
The only downside we found was the noise from airplanes
approaching/taking off Bologna airport and also nearby industries,
that can be heard, however, during the day and outside only. Despite
this we would definitely stay here next time we are in Bologna. Rating
total experience/value for money: 4,5 out of 5 possible." (Tobias B.,
Sweden)

"Alberto & Anna -- Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful home
with us. We enjoyed our stay in Bologna very much and was most
comfortable in your villa. It featured everything that we wanted, and
we appreciated the lovely furniture and extensive range of crockery.
But most of all, we must thank you both and your family for the warmth
and hospility extended. It was the most pleasant ending to our
vacation in Italy. We would defintely make Torretta our base
should we make another trip to Italy, and would recommend it highly to
all our friends." (John F. Bernath, Columbus, OH - USA)

"Beautiful place, perfectly furnished and functional. Alberto, Anna
and Alessandro are top hosts. We spent a great vacation here. Ciao!"
(Tom F. Mobile, AL, USA)

"Great villa in the middle of the fields with the city center at hand.
Wonderful hosts." (Cliff Washansky, USA)

"Alberto's residence is the perfect accommodation. It is roomy, clean,
excellently furnished and its location makes it perfect for day trips
in the area, especially if you have a car. We spent 2 beautiful weeks
there easily traveling to Florence, Venice, Ferrara, Modena and
Mantua. The immediate surroundings (hills - great food & wine!) are
also great, don't miss them!" (ane & Phil & Tina - Lincoln, Nebraska -
USA)

"Beautiful piece of property, great location! Perfect if you are
attending the Fiera exhibit and have a car. Very nice hosts -- thanks
Alberto and Anna! Ciao." (Robert Pacifico, Newark, NJ - USA)

"I totally vouch for this property. It is clean, well set and
excellently furnished, conveniently positioned and with great hosts.
Also, we saved a lot of money out of the average hotel costs with
this. Don't get fooled by in-town, central accommodations. By staying
here we got quiet and never got stuck in traffic." (Greg Esposito,
Auckland, New Zealand).

"Two thumbs up for this place! Great hosts, great house, wonderful
hospitality and a super vacation in Bologna! Thanks Alberto and Anna."
(David Vanderkoon, Akron, OH - USA)

"This villa is a great place to stay. It is very convenient to Bologna
and you can easily drive to all spots in and around town without
getting trapped in traffic. Nice countryside/outskirts environment
dotted with some big storage buldings here and there but also fruit
trees and vineyards. The airport is near but does not bother much.
Great hosts, very nice and helpful. The house is wonderfully equipped
with ALL you need. Very clean and comfortable. I recommend it to all."
(Hans Rederma, Hamburg, Germany)

"Accomodation was clean well accomodated and beautifuly situated
exactly according to the advertisement specifications". (Mike Anders,
Bristol, UK)

"Les photos de l'appartement sont en dessous de la réalité - il est
beaucoup plus beau que la description qui en est donnée ...
entièrement vouté, peintures aux couleurs chaleureuses, un véritable
bonheur. Une décoration soignée et une propreté sans équivalent.
Parfaitement bien équipé, celà va du linge de maison neuf en passant
par tout l'électro-ménager. Très bien situé, dans un village mignon et
tout est à portée ... Propriétaire avenant et serviable, tout est
réuni pour passer un merveilleux séjour". (Corinne, France)

"I spent a week at Torretta Residence while on a business trip and I
should say that it was the best of my stays ever. The house is
extra-clean, tidy, provided with everything one needs, furnished with
taste and zest, efficiently equipped, roomy and bright, so one feels
even better than at home. Regardless of the vicinity of the city (that
is in many ways convenient) the location is quiet, comfortable and
peaceful as typical of the countryside. Moreover the kindness and
eagerness to help of the owners is peerless. 100% recommended! (Julia
B., USA + Italy)

"We spent excellent time at Anna and Alberto’s. Their property is in
the immediate outskirts of Bologna, which makes the center easy to
reach (great parking lots, free with bus fare) as well as the
fairground, the airport and the highway. As stated in the ad we found
large spaces both inside and outside. Everything was very clean, well
kept, efficient and furnished with taste, definitely better than what
we thought from the photos. The rate was excellent too - about one
third of the average hotel room in the area! Moreover, Alberto and
Anna were very helpful, very hospitable and nice. A great value for
your money!" (Mary G., Italy)

"We had a great stay at this villa. It is extra clean, newly
refurbished and perfectly stocked, with a huge yard and parking space.
The kitchen has all you need to cook, even elaborate dishes. The city
center is not that close, yet transportation is convenient and takes
you everywhere for almost nothing -- the train station is only 10
minutes walk and so is the bus stop (bus ticket: 1 euro for 1 hour
ride). Thank you Alberto and Anna, Bologna is beautiful and so is your
place, we will surely come back! -- Emile from France" (Emile D., France)

"Bonita y funcional casa a las afueras de Bolonia. No pudimos conocer
a los propietarios (Alberto y Anna, nos atendió el primer día
Alessandro, su hijo), pero si a Fernando y Angela que ejercieron de
perfectos vecinos ofreciendose para cualquier cosa. La casa esta bien
equipada con un jardín amplio. Recomiendo la estancia en esta casa
para cualquiera que visite Bolonia" (Mario N., Spain)

"Struttura accogliente e ben attrezzata. Un 10 per la cordialità,
disponibilità e gentilezza del proprietario." (Michela A., Italy)

"We had a very nice stay at Torretta. My wife and I particularly
appreciated the space and kitchen as we were travelling with an
infant. We also liked the fact that the Vvlla was very close to a
train station. The train ride is only approx. 10 minutes to Bologna
Central (the train runs roughly every 30 min during peak times to
every hour during non-peak times so plan your trips accordingly)."
(Troy R., Canada)

"Excellent rental, spacious, light-filled, clean and very well
maintained, with a very mice yard. Great welcome with (self-produced,
organic) fresh fruit and wine. Owners are always available when
needed. A good value for your money. Absolutely recommended."
(Marjoire & Ken S., La Jolla, USA)

"La vivienda está bien en general pero para 8 personas vendría mejor
si dispusiera de un dormitorio mas. Está situada junto al aeropuerto
de Bolonia y un poco retirada de la población (Calderara di Reno), lo
que hace recomendable disponer de coche, con el cual es ideal como
base de operaciones para visitar las ciudades del norte de Italia. A
un pequeño paseo a pie está la estación de tren desde donde ir a
Bolonia. Hemos estado a primeros del mes de agosto y en nuestro caso
sin problemas de mosquitos. Fernando ha sido igualmente un cordial
vecino a quien agradecemos su hospitalidad." (José A. L., Spain)

"I rented this property with 5 colleagues to attend a trade show at
the Fiera District in Bologna. As I attended this
show before I can now say this place strategically encompasses any
other rental in town and is therefore ideal both for corporate people
and tourists - you need not to cross the busy city center to reach the
fairground and the central station - i.e. avoid at least 40-45 minutes
of traffic jam and get to wherever you need in minutes. Moreover, the
villa is spacious, clean, comfortable and well kept, with plenty of
space outside to relax after a busy day. The airport is close, but
that did not bother us. The noise of planes taking off was minimal and
only during the day -- much better than the continuous traffic noise
of an urban setting, anyway. The contacts with the owner were
excellent before and throughout our stay, with a very warm welcome at
our arrival. I recommend this place highly." (Bron V., Norway)

"This residence is one of the nicest properties I stayed at.
Immaculately clean, spacious, well appointed, and was a home from home
for a few days. Alberto, Anna and their family have seen to every
detail of the apartment, right down to their local wine and produce!
Great location, steps away from the 8 minute train ride into central
Bologna. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended, and
Torretta will be my first on my list when I return to Bologna."
(Humphrey H., USA)

"This rental couldn't have been more perfect for us. It was just as
lovely as it appears in the photos - actually more - and very
convenient to the central part of Bologna as the suburban train line
is walking distance and the ride to the center is only 8 minutes.
Everything we needed to set up housekeeping was in the apartment when
we arrived and we were greeted by a couple of self-produced wine
bottles and some delicious fresh fruit from Alberto and Anna's organic
farm. The air conditioning worked beautifully and efficiently as did
everything else in the apartment. The house is quiet and removed from
the street, the yard is great. We felt safe and secure at all times.
We are recommending this villa to all our traveling friends and surely
hope to rent it again ourselves. Great landlords - all promises and
commitments were amicably honored, and they also took us out for
dinner!" (Valerie M., USA)

"It was all as we expected, very nice. Rooms are big, plenty of space
and free wifi." (Andrej T., Croatia)

"I recently moved to Rome and do a lot of traveling for business -
this is by far one of the best rentals I booked in Italy. It is clean,
light-filled, roomy and very welcoming, much better than in the
pictures. Its position in the immediate outskirts of Bologna makes it
a great headquarters if you need to go to the fairground or drive
around. Free private parking, free (well-working) internet, satellite
tv. Great, helpful owners. Highly recommended." (John B., USA)

"Our family of 6 stayed at this villa in August and thoroughly
loved it. It is a pretty house surrounded by a fenced and gated lawn
which is ideal if you have children. The center is not close, but is
easily reachable by train - it took us no more than 8 minutes to get
there, whereas the station is only 3 minutes walk. The house is large
and clean, light filled, tastefully decorated and well equipped for
self catering, with a safe and free parking lot. It was a great base
for day trips to Florence, Parma, Maranello (Ferrari factory), Modena
and Venice. Being a hot summer week, we particularly appreciated the
very efficient air conditioning system. Another highlight of the week
was a visit to the Gelato University (3 kms) and the time we spent
there with Alberto whose love for life (and ice cream) is contagious.
Great friendly welcome with a basket of self-produced fresh fruit and
wine. Absolutely recommended." (Giovanna M., USA)

Very disappointed

Guest: Ros

Hometown: Ayrshire, Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Stayed: July, 2018

We booked this villa in December 2017,paying the required deposit
When I contacted them the day before arrival I was informed they had given our holiday apartment to another family!

They did send a link to another property which we could not access, but agreed to take it anyway as we were desperate.

This apartment was ok. It was one bed apartment and was small for our needs. However, we no longer had parking and had to pay €12 daily to park the car in a car park. We were charged the same money as villa Michelangelo for one bed apartment.

Very very disappointed!
The manager, Guido, said sorry but no more. He did not even email as a matter of courtesy on our return home!
