“great hospitality, a B&B with extra's”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We stayed at Ca' Barbona for 2 nights in September and we loved it. When we arrived there was ample parking space. We received a warm welcome from Mirko and Alessandra and their 2,5 year old Philippo, even though we were a few hours earlier then we (and they) had expected. Our room was ready for us. The rooms upstairs are not huge, but big enough. Our room had airco, which was silent and worked well. The room was very clean and looked fresh and new. The double bed was comfortable. The 3 rooms upstairs share a bathroom and separate shower, which were also recently renovated and everything worked well and was very clean. At Ca' Barbona the owners share their home with visitors, so it's not like some B&B's where the guests are in separate quarters. It was like staying with friends, because Mirko and Alessandra are very nice, hospitable and have great tips for visitors.
They gave us a loan of 2 bikes, which was great for going to the beach. The beach is 10 minutes away, if you take it easy, and the bike saves you the trouble of parking. The beach is part of a nature reserve, so it is clean and relatively quiet. White sand, crystal clear, warm water, and the silence of the nature reserve. This is the best beach I've ever seen in Italy, and I've seen most of Italy.
Back at the B&B the breakfast was great, everything you can expect is available. On top of that we were offered boiled or fried eggs and cold meats and cheese.
The location near the beach is great, but Ravenna is also nearby, and so is Cervia.

Ca' Barbona is an old farmhouse which is beautifully restored and decorated. It has a great atmosphere, first and foremost thanks to the owners whose hospitality makes this place extra special.

Room Tip: The 3 rooms upstairs have shared bathroom/toilet and shower. This is reflected in the price, which i...

Our stay at Ca barbona was simply amazing. It offers a great and friendly service, completed with a nicely furnished home. Perfect for animal lovers. It is located very near to tourists' places like Mirabilandia, Milano marittima and Cervia. Since we did not rent a car the owners were very helpful in driving us to the nearby station, which is also very near by walk. It was a very welcoming and pleasant experience at Ca Barbona! Would surely recommended to family & friends! ;)

Excellent b&b: great location, price, service, rooms. Owners were very friendly. Rooms are beautifully decorated and it felt as if I had stayed with friends. What I liked is that Ca Barbona had enough 'chaos' to make me feel at home and I could relax. Owner was very kind and let me get milk for my 6 yr old whenever I wanted. They also allow you to use their outside fridge. My son loved the trampoline and the slides outside. It is very near Mirabilandia, Ravenna Safari and Milano Marittima. We also visited San Marino from there, by train and then caught a bus, which runs frequently from Rimini station. Only minus is that it's not suggested that you walk it from nearby station to the b&b after sunset as it's quite dark. We were without a car. Otherwise it is excellent for people travelling with kids, visiting Mirabilandia and on a tight budget.

Writing this on our past night at Ca Barbona. So pleased that we chose it.

Rooms : en-suite triple on ground floor. Slept very well and the mosquito screens did the trick too. Rooms are decorated with thought and individuality..from mosaic mirrors to driftwood shelves, reclaimed desk, retro surfing posters, exposed brickwork and beams. Large comfy double bed, immaculately clean bathroom and great shower after warm days.

House : has character in spades! Its a restored farmhouse, with lovely outside terraces and a big garden with lots of natural shade. Lots of safe green space for children too, 2 dogs, a cat and a fabulously cute kitten too. You really do feel like you're staying with the family as friends - dinner on the first night and a great discussion about music, accompanied by a discovery on Spotify of of Italian, Hungarian, Dutch Ska, New Zealand and British music was a real highlight!

Food : Mirko is a great cook...plenty of pasta, grilled meats, local cheeses, fresh fruit and vino. Breakfast also really good, great variety. One thing i also loved is that they don't mind you bringing back something to eat/drink and eat it on their terrace...you can also store in their outdoor fridge.

The Resort and Beach : you can drive to Lido di Classe in under 5mns, also definitely recommend borrowing their bikes and having a look at the nature reserve and pinewood. The beach that runs parallel with pinewood is brilliant...unspoilt and very natural.It makes a refreshing change on a coastline that is heavily populated by concrete hotels and row upon row of sunloungers. Beach is wide and shelves gently into sea, safe for children. The resort is quite small, family style,one main road of shops etc, but it is very low key...no loud bars or clubs running al night.

Sightseeing : Ravenna for mosaics and just a nice town. Comacchio is a little fishing port with canals and a bit of a Venice style feel. Milano Marittima is a smart resort down the coast..larger resort with some chic designer shops and some trendy bars and restaurants.

In summary : really loved our stay, the family are so welcoming. I hope we can come back!!

Room Tip: Downstairs triple ensuite very comfy!

This place is the cutest! We stayed 3 days here and I really didn't want to go anywhere else (I did but I could've stayed forever). The hosts were very friendly, hospitable and great cooks!! Mirko made us an incredible Bolognese and Alessandra countered with awesome chocolate cake.
They have a beautiful garden to lounge around, play cards or ping pong and we used there bikes to bike down to the beaches.
While we were leaving they were building a pool... So sad to leave :) But I have a feeling I will see them again!
thanks for the great times!

We spent three nights at the Ca'Barbona and it was much more than we expected. We felt home from the first moment. Alessandra, Mirko and little Filippo are fantastic hosts. You may use the whole house and the beautiful big garden. There is a pool, a playground for children, plenty of cozy chairs and places to relax and simply enjoy the beautiful nature.
The breakfast is very delicious with homemade cakes, very good cappuccino and all the rest you may wish for a good start into the day and even more.
One evening, Mirko and Alessandra cooked dinner for all the guests in the b&b and we spent a great evening together and the food was very tasty.
The location is also great. You are only a couple of minutes from the beach, it takes 50 minutes by car to San Marino or 20 minutes to Ravenna. Both places are worthwhile to visit. There are also bikes which may be used to ride to the beach for example.
Our room was also very nice and clean. The house is very special since the owners have basically completely changed it over years to what it is now! Congratulation! You have created a nice bijou! We will come back and can recommend this place to everyone.

Hi everyone. I' d like to write my very possitive opinion about CaBarbona and the Owners. I went there with a family and met a beautiful, renovated house, with wonderful garden. Breakfasts were tasty, much better than in any other place in Italy. It's just 1km from the beautifull, silent seaside, where you can get by bike, if you like. The atmosphere in CaBarbona is really nice, like at home. Everything written in the owners' description is truth. So, I give Ca Barbona 10/10 points. Thank you.
