Have you ever slept in a straw house?
You can experience it at our Bed & Breakfast “Al gufo saggio”
We are Laura and Stefano, a teacher of primary school and a social worker. About two years ago we moved from Sotto il Monte Giovanni XXIII in the province of Bergamo, in the North of Italy to the Romagna countryside, following our dream.
The backcountry in Romagna seemed ideal: close to the sea, not far from the beautiful art-city of Ravenna and surrounded by gentle hills. In other words … we are in the heart of Romagna, one of the most welcoming regions in Italy!
“Al gufo saggio” is a dream come true: it’s more solid and resistant than the straw house of the famous story of the three little pigs by the Grimm Brothers. The outside walls are made of bales of straw, while the interior is mainly made of compressed straw panels. The rounded profile, the slightly “pot-bellied” walls, the walls covered in raw earth and lime are absolutely unique and surprising.
An area of our house is open for guests as a Bed & Breakfast. If you want to spend a few days in Romagna for a trip to the beach, a cultural visit, a gastronomic stop-over in one of the many festivals of the area etc … or simply rest in the quiet countryside… you must visit us! You are always welcome in our B&B!
