Sea, sun, art and food in Italy, in Ravenna.
A family maisonette in Italy, very near to the sea, 8 km. north from Ravenna, with 2 potato dogs needing cuddles.
Our Home & Location
This maisonette is my summer sea-home.
Have 3 floors and one downfloor, 4 bedrooms +1, 3 bathrooms (2 showers and a Jacuzzi, but I need to fix it up), one large kitchen and a living room....
There’s a balcony where you can dry your clothes, washing machine, dishes machine, hoven, microwave, a loundry, a little garden (no grass because of the trees) and a little out on the back.
It’s about 200 square m., with an interior wood stair.
There’s a tv, but doesn’t work very well, as we prefer spending our time out at the sand beach (10 minutes walkin from house, the sea is very suitable for babies). Beaches are free or very organised as you prefer. (East)
My bicycles are on desposal (please, chained them every time, also in the garden).
In front of the sea there’s a big green natural area ideal for jogging and walking.
At west there’s the valley when you can go with dogs and walking in peace “breathing” the sunset.
Marina Romea, where the house is, is perfect for family and very quite people.
If you love the movida you can go 3 km. far away, in Marina di Ravenna, full of young people for happy hour and disco.
By bus you can reach Ravenna (about 30 minutes), a gorgeous city for art and culture (8 Unesco place in it!). (South)
Mosaic stages are possible on payment.
At north is very interesting going to visit the Po Delta (where the biggest italian river arrives in the sea) and Comacchio Valley a natural reserve for the birds too, and at south the Cervia Saline, where they do a special salt, very good. (Typical fish: anguilla.)
20 km. south to the house you have Mirabilandia, the biggest fun park in Italy (rollercoaster etc.).
In Romagna, the region, you have to try piadina, a typical kind of thin bread full of what you prefer (very typical is “squacquerone e rucola” - cheese and vegetables). + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Althea and Cipo just need basilar dog things: dry food (main in the morning and something little in late afternoon), water on disposal ever clean, one relaxing walking once a day (twice if you like) and a lot of cuddle and human relationship, but they can manage lonely at home several hours (I put a big nappy down on the floor just in case and clean up if necessary).
Sometimes going just out of the house during the day to do their business (clean up with little doggy bags)....
When alone they prefer stay in the home than in the little garden.
Cipo needs some very simple medicine to give once a week.
Bring them to the vet if in case of emergency (of course I refund it).
They are a bit shy in the beginning, because of their bad experiences (both beaten, abandoned and rescued from street), but after they are the cutest you wish.
Althea is terrified by big and sudden noises, so you have to pay attention if a very fast car is passing by, also with the lace, or when there are fireworks (in this case, if out and free, she escapes).
Sometimes she coughs, she seems not to breath, but it’s nothing, don’t panic and just tranquilize her with some calm, sweet word, it’s enough.
They are allowed to stay everywhere in the home (bad, sofa), but have their own pillows on the ground.
A glass of water a day to the jasmin outside could be appreciated.
If with very little babies, please pay attention to close gates of the stairs every time (I put them for mine some years ago). + More info
