Sometimes stones and words hide themselves away, lying in wait for the right moment to come back around.
The right moment arrived in 2011 for Laghello, when we decided – after living here for 10 years – to renovate a farm building that stood in a panoramic position inside our property.
We came up with the idea of building a climate home with a very low environmental impact, completely from plastered wood, with low-temperature underfloor heating, natural wood windows and doors, the collection and recycling of rain water, walls with organic and hypoallergenic paint, solar panels and a big heat pump for central heating.
Day after day we saw our big, spacious and elegant agritourism rise out of those ancient and silent stones. Our apartments with terracotta tiled flooring, ceilings with exposed beams, waxed-finishing furnishings, bright rooms and Wi-Fi throughout. Yet no television.
Every apartment comes with a dishwasher, but we decided to centralize our laundry service – which is completely free – in order to partly reduce our environmental impact. What’s more, for breakfast you will always find organic honey and homemade jams, all made by us.
