The owner lives in the second section of the house (the apartments are divided and communicating only through a door). When available, He'll assist you with your inquiries - on a simple english base - and He'll be happy to explain you features of the surrounding area, his own artistic products or techniques of organic farming.
The town has restaurants, hospital, food and other services but the house is 15-20 minutes drive far from it and fully immersed in nature, so beware of bees, wasps, scorpions and other insects. Wood for domestic heating (necessary on winter) is NOT included and must be required separately at a price to be agreed.
The rules that apply are those of common sense: avoid danger, do not damage the property, clean what is dirty and leave the place as you found it, respect the local people and wildlife, during excursions do not cause pollution or leave gates for cattle open. Water is provided by a private spring, generally abundant, but still a precious resource not appropriated to be wasted, most likely to be used for personal hygene, cooking, drinking and so on. Beside the cuisine, Romagna is famous for the S. Giovese red wine and other liquors. Drink wisely, as we'll not tolerate an excessive state of drunkenness.
