“Beautiful Home, tastefully decorated and furnished with original artworks.”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We loved the house. It is much bigger than we expected. It is very tastefully decorated and furnished with many original artworks. The courtyard garden is a little oasis and the large terrace is great if you want to catch the sun. Air on is in all bedrooms, which in a hot July was a must. Manuela was an excellent and lovely host. We highly recommend.
Ravenna is beautiful with some world.class attractions. It has many excellent restaurants and bars. There are also excellent beaches nearby that do not get too crowded even in peak season.
One word of warning Mosquitos. Be prepared even during the day in shaded areas.

“Lovely accom ideally situated in central Ravenna”
Reviewed 24 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I’ve just returned from a very enjoyable stay at Casa di Poeti with my husband and children (aged 12 and 15). The house was perfect for us, centrally located in the historic part of Ravenna, an easy ten minute stroll from the train station and with lots of space.

The house is full of appealing artwork and curios, at the same time as being very clean, fresh and uncluttered. It feels like a peaceful oasis in the city, and has two private terraces, one with lots of shade, and one with full sun, the latter reached via a vertiginous spiral staircase. There is also a small private garden/terrace at the entrance to the property. The air con in the bedrooms was much appreciated as it was very hot indeed during our stay.

Ravenna is a pretty ideal holiday location in my opinion. It has historical sites, interesting boutiques and plenty of eateries on your doorstep. At the same time as being a 'real' place, a positive thing in my mind, it is has a relaxing laid back holiday atmosphere and it’s easy to access the beach and other places.

We relied on the train service, which worked out fine, but a car would perhaps let you explore the area more fully. Via train we visited Bologna, Ferrara, and local beach resort Cesenativo which was really pretty. By bus, we went to the beach at Marina di Ravenna which has plenty of bagni (one with a pool - Lucciola) but not a huge amount more. The bus service is pretty good, with a stop near the house, and I think the journey took about 20 minutes. We didn’t get round to visiting Lido Adriano which seems to be a much more developed beach resort than Marina di Ravenna and also near.

The kitchen at Casa di Poeti is well equipped, and we ate in some nights, with supplies we bought at the Coop supermarket just around the corner, or a little deli a couple of blocks away. Both offered ready prepared fresh meals to heat up at home. There are also some lovely pastry shops and Gelateria in the city, our favourites being Ferrari and Papilla. Of the restaurants we visited, Ca' de Ven was a highlight.

In short, my family and I would highly recommend this accommodation.

“At home in Ravenna”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

Casa dei Poeti is a wonderful home in the middle of Ravenna. Inside, all is peaceful and quiet. Outside, you are in the middle of the ancient city, close to nearly all the World Heritage sites. There are two floors, several rooms equipped with beds and many places to choose from when sitting outside, even a spiral staircase to a small rooftop terrace.

We found the house to be well-equipped (though no bottle of wine, as another visitor mentioned). Although we were late, there was a friendly welcome and a lot of personal recommendations. Casa dei Poeti is very private; whenever we unlocked the front door on the street, we felt as if we were entering our very own “Italian home”.

Drawbacks: Parking is a bit of a challenge, since you can only park at a garage a block away and need to wait for the attendant whenever you need the car or have to drop it off. It can be time-consuming. The shower volume can be maintained if you keep adjusting it, but the area is very small, so flooding the floor is inevitable. However, these are just small problems and part of the individuality of this place.

We found not to have enough time to see everything we wanted in and around Ravenna with a 3-night stay and would recommend taking more time if you are really interested in the history and the sights.

“One of the best houses we have ever stayed in”
Reviewed 27 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Casa dei poeti feels like a beautifully appointed home rather than a holiday let. The owners met us when we arrived and were accessible if we needed them during our stay but were never intrusive.

The house is located in the historic centre of Ravenna within easy walking distance of all the monuments and restaurants,.yet is in an utterly peaceful and safe position..

We came to Ravenna by train from Bologna and were easily able to walk from the station following Manuela's accurate instructions.

You enter the house through a shared hallway which leads to a tiny private courtyard garden from which you get access to the house itself

Once inside you find the rooms tastefully furnished, the beds very comfortable, the kitchen and bathrooms equipped with all you need for a holiday stay. (If you were being picky you could wish for a slightly more powereful shower).

We were a group of friends in our seventies who came to Ravenna to see the mosaics and thoroughly enjoyed coming home to the casa after a day of culture.

This house put the finishing touch to a great holiday. Book it if you can.

My sister-in-law and I came to Italy for adventure and to take a mosaics class in Ravenna. We were originally scheduled to stay in a B and B which was so incredibly heartbreakingly awful that upon arrival that we sought help in finding a different accommodations. We were referred to the owner of Casa dei Poeti , the very lovely, gracious and beautiful Manuela and met her at the house. My sister-in-law and I were very pleasantly surprised at the size and quality of this home and its nice furnishings. It has all the comforts of home, a real oasis with a private garden terrace, and set back in seclusion by two sets of doors and a hallway from the street. The place is simply wonderful!
We shared some of the very best times of our entire trip at Casa dei Poeti. I couldn't recommend it any more highly! I just hope its available for our next visit!
