We moved here in Valchiusella a couple of years ago because we were looking for a place where we could live completely immersed in nature and where we could experiment living off grid.
The house was built at the beginning of 1900 it's completely surrounded by nature, and we totally live off the grid.
We love hiking, to experiment with gardening and DIY projects, especially with repurposed materials.

We are completely off the grid : we have solar panels so we have to pay attention on how we use electricity because sometimes it may be limited and we get water from a spring.
