Hello and welcome!
THE HOUSE / B&B
The house is a bed and breakfast with four bright double rooms all with en-suite bathroom, air conditioning, flat screen tv and and a view on the surrounding hills and countryside. Every room has a double bed (size is 160x195 centimeters) with high quality foam mattress. Two rooms open onto a terrace overlooking the valley. Shared areas include a big dining hall, lounge and a spacious garden patio.
Parking is freely available in our safe dead end street.
Being a B&B, breakfasts are included in the room rate. We are very happy to host vegetarian/vegan guests so please tell us in advance if you have any kind of diet requirement, we'll be happy to serve a breakfast that suites your needs.
On the other hand, if you would like not to have breakfast or if you think you'd like to cater yourself breakfast please let me know, I'll reduce the room rate accordingly.
Our kitchen is available for guests who need to use it for preparing their own meals, but it’s nevertheless true that the area is full of very good traditional restaurants (we are more than happy to give recommendations about it) , local traditional trattorias are one the most appealing reason to stay in our area!
WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO BOOK (1 ROOM OR THE WHOLE HOUSE?)
Airbnb listings are usually set for 1 room or 1 whole house. Since we have both options on this listing we would kindly ask you please to read carefully in order to avoid any possible misunderstanding.
When you book for 7/8 people (4 rooms) as a matter of fact you'll get the whole house (no other guests will be staying here while you're here). When you book for 1 to 6 people you book for 1 to 3 rooms (so in this second case other guests might be staying at the B&B when you're here).
Rates change accordingly to the number of guests you book for. Usually we consider 2 guests are staying in 1 room, 4 in 2 rooms and so on. If you need to use rooms as single rooms (for example 3 guests in 3 rooms) please let me know, I'll try to give you the best quote for this option.
So, just to be clear, usually you are not booking the “whole house” unless we agree this or unless you are 7/8 people.
We keep airbnb calendar updated, but since our guests can book 1 room or the whole house, calendar can be misleading. For istance It could show a night as unavailable when a couple reserves a room on airbnb; but having 4 rooms, 3 could be still availble despite no availability shown; on the other hand, calendar could show one night as available and we could have one (or more) rooms booked through another website (we are not only listed on airbnb). So our calendar could show availability but we could only have some of the 4 rooms avaiable.
This is why we kindly ask to always enquire when you are more than 2 people (or you need more than 1 room).
Besides this, we would suggest to contact us even if you see that the rooms are shown as not available for the period you're interested: most likely there are availabilities.
WHERE WE ARE
We are 15 minutes drive from the main Bologna motorway exit of Casalecchio and from Bologna city center. We are located in the peaceful countryside on the gentle panoramic hills above the noise and heat of the city. You can reach Modena in an half an hour; Ferrara, Ravenna, Florence are daytrip you might consider using our place as a base; Venice is at about 1 hr and half from Bologna (both by car or by train).
We are in the middle of the hilly countryside. If you need a bank, a supermarket, a gelateria, a bar you have to go to the closest village, 4 kilometers from our place.
A wide range of gorgeous restaurants are at a few minutes drive (between 2 minutes and 15 minutes)
HOW TO REACH US
Basically you need a car (a vehicle) to reach us, public transport not being at a walkable distance (buses and suburban trains are at 4 or 8 kilometers from the house and on sunday service is very weak). This said , we might be able to offer a free pick-up service from the train station or the airport. If you are interested in using this service, please contact us in advance to ensure we are available on the days you plan to be here.
Thanks for looking and welcome to Cherry Cat B&B!!!
