Just minutes to Biwako Valley ski and scenic resort, we are surrounded by nature. Lake views are lovely--and on the right mornings, breathtaking. We are raising ducks and chickens and growing many fruit trees. Guests can hike, bicycle, or relax on nearby Lake Biwa beaches or get to Kyoto within 35 minutes. We moved into our newly built house in 2016. We are about 1 km from Horai station. Guests share the house with myself, wife, two sons (11 & 13) and friendly dogs. Breakfast included.
- This is a residential neighborhood so a reasonable level of quietness is essential.
My family and I moved to Shiga Prefecture in June 2016. I love working outside our house, chopping wood for our wood stove, tending to ducks and chickens, and keeping gardens and fruit trees (we have 7 fig trees alone!). My family includes Vince (born in 2003), Andre (born 2006) and Rika. I'm happy my family and I can all meet and spend time with travelers. We look forward to meeting some of you in the near future.
