Bed & Breakfast
via Emilia Ponente, 348 - Bologna (BO)

  • near the station
FondoFrancia is a B&B offering the weary traveller affordable and refined comfort.

Guests have in fact a wing of the house all to themselves with a separate access so as to ensure perfect privacy and freedom of movement.

The B&B is housed in a finely renovated historical Bolognese dwelling, already recorded in mid-nineteen century maps.

Nevertheless, upon passing through the old, evocatively rusty gate, the visitor is as if drawn back in time; the hustle, bustle and traffic congestion of nearby Via Emilia simply fades away, leaving the visitor with a sense of having landed in a quieter and gentler age.

Located in Bologna in proximity to the Airport, Maggiore Hospital, and the Ducati motorcycle factory, it is easily accessible from the beltway’s Fiera exit as well as from downtown Bologna, just a few bus stops away.

Guests are given the use of a spacious room appointed with a comfortable couch and a small table for working with the computer. The room is large enough to accommodate a kitchen nook where guests are free to heat themselves up some food or make a cup of tea. A private bathroom and independent access means they can come in at any time of night or day and truly make themselves at home.
La colazione di FONDO FRANCIA B&B
A choice of teas (traditional and herbal), coffee, milk, barley-coffee, fresh fruit juices, home-made cakes and cookies, fresh bread, butter and home-made jams are standard fare at FondoFrancia’s breakfast table. Savoury breakfast with local sausage meats, cold cuts and cheeses available on request.

Breakfast is served in the house dining-cum-sitting room made all the more comfortable and cosy in winter thanks to an open hearth, while listening to the radio (if desired) and browsing through the abundant touring literature and visitor guides.

Frida, FondoFrancia’s hound-dog, is available, strictly on request and advance booking, for a friendly chat with guests on topics of mutual interest.

Io e il mio ragazzo abbiamo soggiornato in questo fantastico B&B. Ci siamo Trovati davvero benissimo, è in una posizione molto tattica di Bologna perché ci si può Comodamente spostare con Bus o Treno, ma è anche molto tranquillo. Se andate a Bologna per qualche giorno ve lo consiglio vivamente.

Gestore gentilissima e cortesissima; si è dimostrata inoltre di una disponibilità unica accompagnandomi in aeroporto alle 5 del mattino senza alcuna spesa supplettiva. Camera ampia e pulita con annesso un bagno grandissimo e pulitissimo. Lo consiglio vivamente a quanti hanno bisogno di un BeB nei pressi dell'aeroporto.

We’re cycling and scooter buffs; we love travelling and are keen to discover other cultures and traditions different from our own.

That’s also one of the reasons we’ve decided to open our home to visitors; we see it as a way of travelling without any get-about hassle and hustle!

Travelling abroad
Enjoying a comfortable and intimate bed and breakfast is the best way to discover Italy
(find here our commercial video in Italian). Here you can find pure bed and breakfasts and other kinds of accommodation, like boarding houses, inns, country houses, tourist rentals, family run hotels. This is because in Italy B&Bs are subject to specific legal and economic restrictions, but there are also other kinds of family managed accommodation that cannot legally use the "B&B" name. In our listing you will find the exact appellation for each property, and if you click it you will find all its specific features.
