We are Riccardo, Cristina, Lorenzio and Bianca, and we came to this place in the forest to begin a simple yet rewarding life, trying to learn from nature. Our home in the deep mountain forest exists in quiet isolation, 1 kilometer from the nearest inhabitants. We offer you an attic apartment hand-renovated by Riccardo. The apartment has a big bed and pull-out couch (both situated under skylights), a living area, kitchenette, private bathroom and a view of the valley.

The space
For poets, naturalists, thinkers, writers, hikers and lovers of peace: a shelter in the woods. ‘Aran’. 
Located on the mountainside along the trail to the Sanctuary of Santa Cristina, our home is surrounded by chestnuts, birches, hazels, wild mushrooms, aromatic plants and presents itself as the entrance to the Val d'Ala.

Here, you feel you are a part of the elements. We are observing the silent power of nature, working with it instead of against it. There is a wild beauty that permeates everything around us, which at the same time demands our care and attention, and provides healing and inspiration. In your time here, you will have the opportunity to reunite with nature in this way, finding how it connects with you personally.

At the property, we also have some pets - two cats, two dogs, and some chickens, all of which roam around freely. Dharma, our calm shepherd dog, will guide you on your hikes if you like.

Siamo Riccardo e Cristina e viviamo nelle Valli di Lanzo, in provincia di Torino, da circa cinque anni. Riccardo, di Torino, dopo tanti viaggi in giro per il mondo si è stabilito qui, alla ricerca di una dimensione raccolta per se stesso e per gli altri, confidando nella natura e nel potere della condivisione. Cristina, di Roma, dopo tanto girovagare, anche lei ci si è stabilita, qualche mese dopo, spinta dagli stessi ideali e desideri. Con noi ci sono Bianca e Lorenzo, i nostri bimbi; Dharma e Xiao Xiao, le nostre cagnoline; il gallo e le galline oltre a tante tante api. Viviamo e lavoriamo qui, per poter poi condividerne i frutti con ospiti ed amici e godere insieme di cibi naturali, di marmellate e tisane di erbe e frutti selvatici, del miele delle nostre api, delle torte, zuppe e pizze integrali fatte da noi con ingredienti semplici, del calore della stufa ma anche e soprattutto dei regali che la natura ci offre: dai cerbiatti dietro la casa, alla montagna con i suoi repentini cambiamenti, al bosco e agli uccellini sempre intorno, alla luna e alle stelle.
