An alternative lifestyle experience. Immersed in a natural reserve inside the Green Villagge, an ecovillage part of the GEN network.
Why come visit us? Our b&b is in the "Green Village" an ecological village part of the Global Ecovillage network, immersed in the natural reserve of the Baragge, Cavallirio, Novara.
Activities in the Village include: holistic practices such as Qi Gong, natural horsemanship, sustainable practices laboratories, organic agriculture and much more...
The bed & breakfast at the "Green Village" is a newly restored, energy efficient building with a lot of attention on material choices, avoiding unsustainable practices and applying a systems' thinking approach...
The alternative lifestyle experience:
I've always lived in great cities. My intellectual, and why not also my spritual search have taken me to understand the craziness of our times and to discover movements such as downshifting and transition towns, terms such as energy saving, alternative economies, systems thinking, biomimmicry, homesteading and DIY practices while I worked as a sustainability consultant... I tried putting to use all of these practices in a city context with much difficulty until I discovered the "Green Village". I fell in love with the place and with the people who live here. I saw the possiblity of developing fruitful and deep relationships for sharing our life in awareness. Now here I am living my dream, with all of the opportunities and difficulties that come along with the evolution of every being.. The b&b reppresents the opportunity to share this experience...
Nearby are several sightseeing areas such as lago Maggiore (about 40 minutes by car), lago d'Orta (20 minutes by car), and the Borromean Islands (40 minutes by car).
The closest mountain for skiing or hiking is Alagna about 1 hour from us.
the room was big and clean, villagio verde is a special place and Araceli was nice and friendly as well as the people we met there.
for us the room was a bit cold as well as the water at the shower, the heating system didn't work yet...and we came with a baby, so it was important.
thank you for hosting us.
Was a very pleasant stay indeed. The place is very quite and ideal for children of small (less than 10-12) age. You will definitely need a car if you want to move around.
Araceli nous a très bien accueilli.
Maison au calme.
Le Lac D'Orta est assez proche et vraiment très joli.
The place was peaceful and quiet, in the middle of a forest, near lake Orta. The room was comfortable and clean and the host Araceli was very helpful. I was also exited with the eco-friendly behaviour of village's citizens! So, if you are looking for spending some days close to nature, Villagio Verde is a very good option! Also you have the opportunity to take some horse riding lessons!
It is a magic place! I was looking for a place close to the nature to spend my birthday and I was perfect, so much more than I was expecting. A place in the middle of a beautiful forest, very peacefull, pure and full of energy. Araceli is really kind, helpful and full of good things to share, and her kids are lovely!
The room is really good, very clean, comfortable and beautiful, all fitted up with handmade wood fornitures, eco/bamboo sheets and blankets...everything very nicely thought.
Villagio Verde is a place to be visit if you're open to get to know a more love based life style. The whole concept of this place is beautiful and to be followed!
B&B Villaggio Verde was brillent, just a nice place in the woods, few minutes drive from Lake Orta (which is outstanding)
room is comfortable, very clean and spacious.
The host Araceli is friendly and helpful.
I couldn't have been happier with the experience.
Very nice and peaceful place to stay, good and healthy breakfast. The host was very welcoming and open to conversation, its a good place if you want to stay out of the city, you like animals and you have a car!
The room was very clean and comfortable and the house was just renovated. The area is nice for walking and biking -- both road cycling and mountain biking. Some restaurants in the area.
The house is in a very nice setting surrounded by woods and small farmlands. At night the wildlife (frogs, birds and such) can get rather loud so bring ear plugs if you consider that being noise.
Villagio verde is really a quiet and nice place. The room we had was nice and also big and quiet. The only thing you have to think of are earplugs for the night (big frog pond behind the house:-) )
