Al gufo saggio - la casa di paglia

  • Bed & Breakfast
via gagni 19 - San Zaccaria - 48125 Ravenna - Ravenna - Italy

The wise owl is a house built entirely of straw bales, an environmentally friendly, biodegradable materials, in an inspired hospitality to the criteria of sustainability and overall well-being.

The wise owl is a cozy ecological house built of straw and natural materials immersed in Ravenna campaign in twenty minutes from Ravenna and Cesena and twenty minutes from the beaches of Cervia and Cesenatico. The extensive breakfast buffet is based on homemade dishes and local foods: bread, buns, cakes and biscuits, juices and jams.

You can choose between two large rooms with private bathrooms and magnificent views of the countryside:

HOUSE CAMPAIGN: double or triple room with a large window on the surrounding countryside, from which to admire the sunrise. It is a room with plaster made of clay and lime-based paint color green tea: raw earth, besides being totally recyclable and environmentally friendly (comes from our garden) it has numerous other properties:
   - regulates the humidity of the premises;
    - presents no mold;
    - has excellent sound-absorbing properties: the clay plaster absorbs the sounds low frequency thus improving the living comfort;
The clay then, being a colloid, has a great ability to retain gas dust and odors present in the air and then maintaining the healthy environment. Finally it protects us from electromagnetic fields.

A large virtual window allows you to admire the straw walls with which the house is built.
The bathroom is private, variously colored, with a sink resting on recycled brick columns and a wooden table and a large mirror decorated with Thuja wood rods.

We are on the Adriatic coast and therefore could not fail a room with a "sea" characterization. A double room - quadruple, white and bright, with a flooring that invokes the bottom of an old ship. The plaster of the peripheral wall in straw is based on slaked lime, which guarantees maximum breathability.
The walls are made of compressed straw panels and the widest is covered with painted white horizontal beads.
The Navy characterization is also found in the bathroom where, under a mirror decorated with sticks and shells collected during the winters on the beaches of Cervia and Cesenatico, a bucket-shaped basin refers to the next trip to the beach.

In the dedicated breakfast room, with a terrace we offer tasty and abundant buffet breakfast with homemade products through the use of local raw materials: bread, buns, cakes and biscuits, juices and jams.

"At the wise owl" it is dedicated to you that you will spend a few days in Romagna for a trip to the beach, a cultural visit, for a gastronomic stop in one of the many local festivals etc ... and then rest in the quiet countryside.

Maps and tourist information on the main places of the surroundings

We chose the straw because it is an environmentally friendly material, biodegradable and readily available. In fact, we used the straw of the field next to our house! I would say to METRO ZERO! No fees for processing and transport .... The straw is also an excellent insulator, both from heat and cold, thus ensuring a drastic reduction of power consumption for cooling (practically zero) and heating. There is no risk of fire, because the straw is covered with plaster and also because it is very much compressed, so the lack of oxygen prevents the combustion.
It is also a very safe home from the seismic point of view: the straw absorbs the shocks and so there is no danger of collapse.
The straw also, in combination with lime plasters and clay provides excellent moisture management, ensuring a climate unrivaled amenities.

The B & B The Wise Owl is the ideal starting point to reach the most important tourist areas and significant in the area:
- Ravenna, a twenty minute drive, where you can find art and culture, but also a lot of fun and relaxation by the sea.
- Cervia, a few km from Ravenna, a must for its 8 km of beaches, a pine forest, the spa, the salt ...
- Cesena, a city of Umbrian-Etruscan origins, where the important Malatesta family has contributed to the creation of the beautiful old town and the beautiful Malatesta Library, included in UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The wise owl is the perfect place for cyclists who want to explore the Romagna cycling. From sea to mountain, from the rivers to the pine woods, a few km you will have access to a network of cycle paths to suit all tastes.

La casa è molto confortevole e fresca. Stefano, Laura e Milo sono molto simpatici e accoglienti, sempre molto attenti ai bisogni degli ospiti. Le colazioni sono molto abbondanti con prodotti tutti fatti in casa e squisiti. Anche i gufi sono presenti ovunque. Ci ritorneremo senz'altro e lo consigliamo a tutti!!!

Al gufo saggio siamo stati benissimo. La casa di paglia è magnifica, molto silenziosa e accogliente. Io non sapevo si potesse costruire una casa con la paglia ma vi posso assicurare che non ha nulla che manca rispetto alle classiche case in muratura, anzi.
La paglia funziona da isolamento acustico e termico e permette la traspirazione naturale delle pareti.
Dopo averci soggiornato la domanda mi è sorta spontanea "ma perchè si costruiscono le case in cemento?!".
La camera è nuova, pulita e accogliente. I proprietari sono gentili e simpatici e vi saranno dare consigli sui posti migliori da visitare e sui migliori ristoranti.
E' stato per noi un'occasione per visitare una zona molto bella della campagna romagnola lontana dal casino della riviera ma in una posizione assolutamente strategica rispetto alle migliori città della zona.
Infine la colazione assolutamente ottima, dolce e salato e tutto preparato in casa con prodotti naturali e a km0 e ovviamente di ottimo gusto!
Ci torneremo sicuramente.
