  • Description



    Hi, my name is Caroly and i live together with my family on the hills of north Italy. I have two brothers Leonardo and Loris and my parents Luisa and Antonio, our grandma lives with us as well her name is Teresa and she is old enough. the most loved member of the family is our black labrador: Helios who is 4 now . We also have 2 cats Dora and Minnie they just sleep all day and hunt in the night.
    We have a small bed and breakfast with 3 rooms in total that is located on top of a hill, surrounded by beautiful woods. we live 45 minutes away from the Dolomites and 1.5h from the city of Venice.
    My mum and I are vegetarian but the boyz like their meat every once in a while.
    the thing that most brings us close together is travelling. We all love going places and meeting new people.
    Unfortunately we are not able to go travelling at the moment but we would love for people to come here and tell us about their experiences and live with us in this beautiful corner of peace and tranquillity :) there is plenty of gardening and cooking to do :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    by coming here you would find a family ready to give you beautiful experiences, healthy food and one of the best places to relax and explore the northern part of italy.
    the whole house is built in the nature, trying to respect it as much as possible and live in harmony with it.
    if you want it is also possible to learn the art of aikido as my father is a teacher and travels around the world to learn and promote this discipline.
    we are also very close to the beautiful Dolomites where it is possible to organize one day trips as well as longer excursions.
    this part of italy is also known for its beautiful lakes and rivers.
    if you come in summer you can enjoy the swimming pool that is not far from our property and if you come in winter you must try the wood sauna that we built in the woods.
