Fairytale setting, breathtaking view from windows and garden. The climate is mild all year round because the house has a great exposure with lake and mountain views. It is not isolated, but you need a car to go to the nearest locations (2 or 5 km) for trattorias and various resales. It's all cheap and extremely genuine as well as tasty. Nearby you can eat local fish and meat raised outdoors, as you can see along the way to reach the house. The lovely house has a fireplace and league burner that can be lit in the evening for many months of the year and create a fairytale atmosphere. You can sleep on the sofa bed in front of the fireplace.
The garden is equipped with barbecue and is a great table to eat outdoors in the cool of a tree or to enjoy the sun.
There are comfortable loungers and armchairs for the garden, but also some lawn to lie in the sun blissfully in costume and cool off with an outdoor shower.
Nearby are Castel di Tora Colle di Tora and Rocca Sinibalda. Hunting, truffle hunting and mushroom hunting are carried out in the area. Underneath the house passes the path of San Benedetto which is walked by mainly foreign tourists. In the area there are hiking trails on the mountains because the house is in the nature reserve of Mount Navelli.

The space
The cottage is located near the dam of Lake Turano. Perched on the hill near the lake with breathtaking views. 647m above sea level. The house and its garden are accessed by a staircase with two ramps (see photo). There is a pleasant outdoor space with garden and partly paved, with large umbrella and outdoor dining table. The cottage has a living room with exposed chestnut wood kitchen. In the small living room there is a beautiful pink marble fireplace from Portugal and cork on the walls. There are chestnut wood seats that finish the corner fireplace, perfectly functional.
There is a practical wood-burning stove, a burner, which lights up easily and creates a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. There is a window in the living room and one in the kitchenette overlooking a breathtaking, postcard-like, dreamlike view of the lake and mountains.
Bedrooms are furnished with handcrafted natural wood furnishings, in a cottage style out of time and space, surrounded by nature. The windows and shutters are made of wood and have a perfect closure for those in need of darkness and can instead be blocked half-closed for those who love to sleep with a little light. The starry night with the moon sufficiently illuminates the garden, but there is also a lighting system that allows you to experience the outdoors as well as the indoor space even at night. The bathroom has a minimal shower and the bathroom heater is very efficient that never runs out of hot water.
In the nice cellar, closet, there are all the tools for barbecuing, gardening, vegetable garden. There is always a vegetable garden that has vegetables for guests for several months of the year (tomatoes, cucumbers, courgettes, salad and melon) there are fruit trees for guests: plums, cherries, nespoles. Strawberry plants produce strawberries and strawberries to delight guests.
100m from the house there is a meeting point for excursions and DIY tournaments or other (in August). At the june-September meeting point there is a bar with terrace overlooking the mountains, wood-burning pizzeria (not always) and food staples.
At 200 metres there is a playground on the top of the hill with slide, swing and lawn with bench (see photo).
The house is at an altitude of 647m above sea level

Mi piace molto ospitare, come da tradizione italiana Amo immergermi nelle realtà dei luoghi che visito, città o paesini della meravigliosa Italia e non solo. Perció cerco di creare il contesto ai miei ospiti per poter cogliere le peculiarità dei luoghi che hanno deciso di visitare. Offro sempre un qualcosa che mette a proprio agio e predispone alla scoperta dei luoghi come scenografie di una realtà che si è costruita nei secoli. Penso di riuscire quasi sempre
