This astonishing mountain house is located 2.5 h from Venice and an hour from Tarvisio, Austria and Slovenia. It's the perfect place to restore your energies and power.
Literally inside the nature you can breath the fresh clean air and take a walk.
Welcome to Carnia, a magic land where everyday you can discover something new.
This marvelous mountain house is perfect for people and families who love nature and enjoy trading earthy trails and exploring new lands.
If you want to live a short experience forgetting the stressful and polluted life in a big city this is the right place for you.
The house was used by my forefathers from the XVII century up to 1940s as a summer pasture in the mountains where they made ricotta and all kinds of cheese. It was then restored by my mom and it is now used as a mountain house that we all love.
The house not only offers convenience but also many country amenities to ensure a pleasant stay: you can cook by either using the wood stove or the gas one. Same for the heater, you can either light the fire or use the electricity. If you choose to use the wood you can use the one that we cut from our woods every year.
Outside there is the possibility to use the barbecue, we have both the wood burning grill (for the more patient and mellow people) and the gas one, for a quicker but still nice barbecue.
My mom, as you may have understood loves nature and tries to use everything nature offers us: mushrooms, herbs, flowers, vegetables and fruits.
She makes her own jam by using her own fruit and you can eat it whenever you want during your stay. My favorite one is the wild berries one with raspberries, red currant, blueberries and blackberries.
She also loves to go for a hike and on her way back she always finds something to pick and cook for us; in the summer time she picks up all kinds of herbs that she then uses to make herb teas. You can taste them as well.
If you want to experience the beauty of picking up your own veggies you can do so: she has a small organic garden 100 feet from house where you can pick potatoes, cabbage, carrots, broccoli, beans and salad.
Another beautiful thing about the house is the Finland sauna: it can fit up to 4 people at a time and it’s a great way to relax and detox your body from the stress.
I suggest you to use some of your time to take hikes, as some beautiful places are around here: Arzino Waterfalls, Verzegnis Lake and beech woods are just some examples.

I'm Italian and I live near Venice in the Dolomites. For this reason I love mountains and right now I'm taking a course to become a ski instructor and share my passion with other people. I was an exchange student in California (Marin County) in 2013, it was a great experience!
I'm attending an international Med school in Milan because I really like diversity and meeting new people from all over the world.
I also love baking and cooking in general.
