 Min stay requested: at least a week



  • Description


    We are Elena (40), Manuel (45) and Sole (9). We live in a "contrada", a small group of houses in a mountain area near Valli del Pasubio at 600m altitude. We are renovating the house as it is very old. Lots of manual works to do!
    We like nature and natural lifestyles, self-production, community, personal growth and so on. Elena is a yoga and acroyoga teacher (although in this period she is not practising much) and also produces natural cosmetics. Manuel works full time (and more!) in a family business 70km away. We eat simple and mostly vegetarian food (with some exceptions!). We have hens and 2 cats.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There are beautiful walks and trips you can take around in nature, in a mountain environment. Unfortunately the house is not reachable with public transport, so in case you wanted to move a lot towards cities during your stay, this is not the right place for you!
