Villette is a small village located nearby the forest at 800 feet high.
The stone house is about two centuries old... It has been our vacation house since my childhood, yet it has now become part of my everyday lifestyle: I chose to live and work following the nature rhythm.
We have renewed the house inspired by the principles of the bio-architecture, using recycled materials where possible. We use solar panels and a wood stove… Many little steps towards a wider concept of sustainability.
No wi fi or television to give more space to books and music. We enjoy the sound of the nature, we appreciate the colours of the sunrise and the sunset.
I would like to share my ideals and my project, in order to promote a network of contacts between people keen to appreciate simple and essential things. We offer a sustainable kind of hospitality as well as the possibility to enjoy this beautiful place in the Italian mountains.
