The space

It's a modern and environmentally aware restoration of a 1920s terraced house, completely and elegantly restored in line with the principles of green building and sustainability. The most important aspects are the complete lack of reinforced concrete and iron – thus avoiding the creation of a Faraday cage; the use of materials only of vegetable or mineral origin (linings in mineral wool instead of polystyrene, plaster based on lime instead of cement, indoor plastering done using raw clay, flooring in bamboo, doors and windows in wood rather than PVC); complete freedom from electrical and electromagnetic fields in the bedrooms, thanks to circuit breakers; the use of wood frames made from untreated red spruce for the ceilings, the stairs and the whole of the top floor viewing area; total lack of synthetic paints and formaldehyde. Thanks to the use of a heat pump powered by photovoltaic panels and supplemented by a thermal solar panel, the building has been awarded Energy Class A (average annual energy consumption 40Kw/h).

THE THREE BEDROOMS have the following available for guests: LCD satellite TV, WiFi Internet connection, mini bar and coffee maker, air conditioning, breakfast in bed, circuit breaker, bathroom complete with hairdryer

Gabriele was a terrific host! He was very attentive and eager to help with my many questions. Whether it be where to eat, how to take a bus into the city center of Verona (very easy and quick!), suggestions for sight seeing, or calling someone to arrange a taxi, he was a great help and super friendly. The room was very clean and in near new condition. It was nicely furnished, spacious and worked well for my needs. I especially enjoyed the terrace on the roof. It was a great place to lounge and Gabriele hosted an impromptu gathering with bread, meat, cheese and wine one evening for the guests. For the modest price it's hard to imagine anything better. I'd definitely stay here again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Thanks again Gabriele!

Best stay ever in Verona! Gabriele is a very nice host, and his place couldn't be better. Clean and comfortable rooms, beautiful terrace and modern decoration. The location is also great: near the train station, the city centre (Arena) and also close to a bus stop. I would certainly recommend his place!

We had a really nice stay with Gabriele. He is a very nice and helping person. Even though we had some problems with the traffic, our late arrival wasn't a problem at all. He gave us many tips for Verona and recommended restaurants and things to visit. We were very impressed by the house and that it was environmentally friendly/organic. Also, the terrace is great and has a nice view. If we ever come back to Verona, we will definitely stay with Gabriele again.

sono un architetto e Il Geco ad oggi rappresenta il massimo delle mie conoscenze in bioedilizia e sostenibilità. Nella foto sono in un bagno mentre stendo la lisciva d'olio d'oliva per impermeabilizzare naturalmente le pareti in argilla, anzichè usare le semplici piastrelle. Tutta la struttura è bonificata da cemento armato, ferro ed elettromagnetismi, grazie all'utilizzo solo di legno, calce, argille e ai disgiuntori elettrici
