The accommodation and furnishings dell'OrtoAlpino reproduce the hospitality of a private home country of '900. Every object has a story and tells it to those who want to listen or just travel with the mind in a world of ancient and genuine.

Other things to note

The territory of Ortoalpino you can live all year round. The peace and quiet, green and nature can be enriched with restful rural experiences, cultural, environmental and food and wine. Here are some ideas:
- Prosecco Valley. Beyond the Pitch. S. Boldo lies one of the most popular wine producing areas of the world. It 'a landscape shaped by vineyards, forests, isolated hamlets and small villages. Numerous wineries offer tastings, wine knowledge and ability to outlets interior will allow you to bring home the best of Italian production of bubbles. Numerous cottages, old inns and refreshments offer traditional dishes, delicacies within reach of every budget. We will give you all the information for a great experience.
- The WW. Our territory is crossed by the river Piave has been the scene of bloody battles during the First World War. A hundred years later there remain a number of war cemeteries and memorials (Italian, Austro-German, French and English) as well as small and large museums with fascinating and enriching testimonies.
- Agriculture and the Rural Alpine. And 'possible to visit an old dairy turnaria, still in operation, where the cheese is produced at dawn. And 'possible to visit mountain huts, firms cultivating herbs, small fruits. All of this with the opportunity to taste the products and spend time with the witnesses of ancient traditions
- The ghost towns. Cordellon, Tassei, Gena, California .. ancient testimonies of the life of the past, countries depopulated by emigration often located in places that are too difficult, have crystallized the time. Turning from their homes, often in ruins, you find yourself in glimpses of a time that no longer exists, reviewing old kitchens, basements stables, often still hung with poor tools, furniture, tools of everyday life. Absolutely charming.
- On the lake. The Mis lake and waterfalls are glimpses of the blows of nature. To see, enjoy the warmth of the sun and why not, even bathe in the cold waters of the Dolomites.
- And then ... churches, historic homes, small and large museums, towers and castles, fortified towns, evening promenades ... all offered by Valbelluna Treviso and valleys that surround our mountains with rings of ancient history, art, music, culture and tradition .

The OrtoAlpino is used as a starting point for many activities: sports, nature, science, and culture are intertwined and help you discover and explore the territory of the pre-Alps of Belluno, in an engaging and at the same time relaxing.

Make canyoning to Brent Art! It is a natural canyon carved by the river Ardo, to tread carefully and be enjoyed in both summer (fresh water) and winter (ice climbing).
The riding school near all'OrtoAlpino has trained horses available and suitable for the exploration of the mountain territory on which they move ... in summer, which in the cold but clear winter days.

The OrtoAlpino is an educational farm cottage, set in a natural setting of absolute tranquility and harmony with the environment. The company also produces most of the vegetables that offers menus and ensure the recovery of the other ingredients through a network of companies and small local producers who work with natural and environmentally friendly farming techniques.
The house is self-sufficient in terms of energy (through solar panels and solar) and uses thermal energy from plant biomass. Ensure the recovery of rainwater for all non-potable uses. The drinking water comes from the aqueduct that takes the Dolomites. Of course we drink, pinned directly from the faucet.
Well ... let's not impacting the environment or to do as little as possible.
Join this logic and help us in our journey:
- The setting is absolutely informal and mountain. Adjust your clothing (especially shoes) in order to put you at ease. Brought always (even in summer) something to cover you because you just need a time to lower the temperature.
- Please contact our staff for any inquiry, idea, desire. We will try to fulfill it within the limits of our forces and respect for the welfare of the entire group.
- Avoid leaving lights, computers and any other source of waste, unnecessarily turned on.
- Avoid leaving any litter of any kind, to break plants, to scare away wild animals. If you get a rejection, a bottle, a can, please bring it with us as well that we will differentiate it and dispose of it. At the two outputs of the property there are ashtrays for cigarette butts.
- The temperature inside the building is regulated (in cold weather) at 20 °. There is a law that requires it (the exemption at 22 ° is only for health care) but also a civic consciousness that prevents us from wasting energy unnecessarily. Adjusts so your clothing according to what.
- The power supply is directly supervised by the staff of Ortoalpino. Report soon as you get any allergies, incompatibilities or special needs.
- All guestrooms are available from 16 hours onwards; this is to allow cleaning and airing. On the second floor of the building is accessed with slippers (available at the entrance)
- Pets are welcome but can not (compared to the other guests and later) access to interior spaces. They can be outdoors or in non-residential spaces (where you can stay at a bed and provide meal)
- In the interior spaces to the property is non-smoking. This is for health reasons and for reasons of security (the house is made of wood and there are many tissues .. a cigarette badly off can cause a fire and also endanger the lives of other guests). The person who discovered to smoke despite the ban, it will be ejected immediately and at any time of day from the hotel.

We are counting on your sensitivity.
Thank you.

My daughter and I stayed at the this place for one night and enjoyed out time there. We found the space as advertised with the converted dairy cottage neat, tidy and comfortable. The area is very quite and enjoyable, with beautiful vistas of the Dolomites. Michele was a great host. I highly recommend this place.

What a great experience! Prepare yourself for quiet and great views! Me and my wife stayed at the cottage for 1 night. Michele's place is trully amazing. Exactly as seen on the pictures! It is a very cozy cottage, in a very rural and wuiet area. Since it was cold outside, Michele prepared the place and heated it with the fireplace, before our arrival. The all area around the cottage is very quiet as well. But you can find restaurants within 10-15 min of driving. Breakfast was also great with fresh juices and cheese! Thank you michele for your kind host and great place! Hope to come back again someday

This is a delightful little place. We stayed three nights in July and had a wonderful time. Michele is fantastic and an excellent host providing us with fresh vegetables, herbs and eggs from the farm. He was very helpful in advising us on the surrounding area and was extremely patient when we didn't manage to arrive until 1am due to a delayed flight. The cottage was clean and has everything that you might need without being luxurious. Overall, we'd highly recommend it and will hopefully come back again soon.

Michele's place is very quiet and peaceful. This place is perfect for people looking to escape their busy lives and like to be surrounded by nature. Michele was very friendly. He showed us around on his farm and helped us find spots to visit in the area.

I left a job in the city center to follow my passions: mountains, nature, natural farming, photography, cooking. In 2011 I opened a small farm with the possibility of staying in an old stone house refreshed with green building techniques. We don't want to be only a simple B & B but a space where guests can learn the territory and its culture through the vegetable garden, the trails through meadows and woods, and the history and legends of the place.
