About This Listing
"Il Cortile del Nespolo" is the house in which I live with my family. It's a 115sqm, double-storey apartment located around a private courtyard, well away from the noise of traffic, on one of Bologna's best streets. As a registered B&B it provides added security for guests. The guest bedroom, upstairs on the first floor, is elegant, bright and spacious - more than enough room for two people. Like the living areas, it is decorated with antique furnishings and overlooks a green, private back garden. It also features an innovative bathroom with toilet, basin and window, located discretely in one corner. The living room, kitchen and the main bathroom with a shower shared by the family are on the ground floor. We also have a good wi-fii connection throughout the house. If you come with your car, you can easily park in the streets nearby for 6€ per day (sunday is free). If you come by train you can get a bus (n.33) just outside the train station. Get off at Porta San Mamolo. If you come by plane I suggest you to get a taxi, you will reach me in less than 20 minutes. Our location on Via D'Azeglio is very central, attractive and lively with restaurants within a few doors and several cafes nearby. In one direction from our home you have a 10 minute walk to Bologna's central square, Piazza Maggiore, and on the opposite side, in 15 minutes, you can reach Parco Villa Ghigi, a park on the top of a hill where you can enjoy a splendid view of the entire historical centre.
I speak Italian, English and French. I'm at your disposal helping you to find the best places to visit in Bologna and in the small towns nearby. I really hope you will spend an unforgettable holiday in Bologna. Please become my friend on (website hidden) and take advantage of my pages where I post only information and pictures about Bologna.

Our neighborhood has something for everyone. Trattoria, osteria and restaurants to suit all price brackets. In particular we can recommend Trattoria della Santa only 200m away and Trattoria da Trebbi a similar distance from the house. One of Bologna's best pasticceria's is a few doors away and several cafe's and bars are near enough to be convenient and far enough away not to be intrusive. The house is just inside the original city walls and the former gateway of Porta San Mamolo. Like most streets in Bologna it has its own colourful history. As well as being lined with old churches and other important historical buildings, Via D'Azeglio was the scene of an enchanting medieval story of star-crossed lovers, family feuds and subsequent tragedy. Almost every step of the way, there is a tale to be told.
No smoking in the house.
No eating in the bedroom.
The breakfast is served in the living room.
No use of the kitchen at lunch or dinner time. But you can have
dinner with us.
Please, contact me to arrange check-in on time a few days before your arrival.
Barbara is een fantastische, warme en lieve gastvrouw. Meteen bij aankomst voelde we ons welkom. De kamer is netjes en heel mooi.
Het ontbijt is heerlijk en Barbara kan je alles vertellen over Bologna en omgeving. Het was zo fijn om aan het ontbijt met haar te kletsen over wat we die dag konden gaan doen.
Ik kom zeker nog een keer!!!

Excelente experiencia en "Il Cortlie del Nespolo". La casa de Barbara está inmejorablemente ubicada en Via D'Azeglio: un lugar tranquilo y silencioso, dentro del casco antiguo, que con una breve caminata accede a la Piazza Maggiore. Barbara es una excelente anfitriona: conoce y está al tanto de todos los museos y actividades culturales y la historia de la ciudad; es respetuosa, no intrusiva y amigable. Además, la estadía incluye un magnífico desayuno. La habitación es grande, muy limpia y está elegantemente decorada. Recomiendo encarecidamente este lugar para quienquiera que desee pasar una agradabilísima temporada en Boloña.
It is a great place to enjoy Bologna. And it is a very special room with old traditional furnitures, a sweat little bathroom and a beautifull view into a green garden. I enjoyed very much to talk to Barbara, she is very helpful and a very special person :-) thanks for my stay at your place!!
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour au Cortile del Nespolo. Barbara s'est montrée particulièrement accueillante malgré l'arrivée un peu tardive de notre avion. La maison est propre et bien tenue, et décorée avec goût. C'est un plaisir de se promener dans le quartier, et la plupart des sites intéressants sont à moins de vingt minutes à pied. Bref, une très bonne adresse

About the Host, Barbara
Ciao, sono Barbara. Da tre anni ormai condivido la mia casa con persone di tutte le età provenienti da tutto il mondo e...mi piace !
Sono una persona curiosa ma discreta. Amo molto tutto quello che è cultura, dalla storia dell'arte alla cucina tradizionale, dall'ecologia alla religione. Insomma credo che potremmo parlare di qualsiasi soggetto.
