It is an independent unit, near the main house, with a small kitchen, bedroom with 2 single beds and private bathroom.
The nineteenth-century building, still mapped by the Austrian land registry, was used in processing milk into cheese and the seasoning of the pieces. There is still the shape of the fireplace where the pot was placed copper, attached to an arm to be able to zoom in or out of the fire. You can still see the shelves and the nails used to position the tools of the trade.
The bedroom is in the attic, with stone walls and wooden roof: it is very warm on a winter evening in the snow or during a summer storm rain which induces sleep.

Orto Alpino is a farm. It combines the cultivation of vegetables (through natural farming techniques, without any treatment, even those allowed in organic farming) and breeding of small animals with the conversion of crops into jams, juices, compotes. Orto Alpino proposes a model home with low environmental impact due to the amount of solar panels, a wood chip heating and the recovery of rainwater. The residence is adjacent to fields and woods that are suitable for walking, hiking, snowshoeing, nature walks, mountain biking
We had a great stay at the cottage. The atmosphere was wonderful and we took a long hike suggested by Enrico. Would definitely go back and recommend to friends.
My friend and I stayed at the very charming Dairy Cottage for one night, as a stop between hiking in the Dolomites and visiting cities in southern Veneto. The place is great... architecturally interesting, surrounded by tranquil nature, friendly hosts Michele and Enrico, yummy breakfast for an additional fee included homemade jams and pastries. We ate a terrific local restaurant "La Muda di San Boldo", though if you don't catch the turn off for it, you'll be driving down the most incredible road with 17 hairpin turns, 6 of which are in tunnels. I highly recommend it!
What a great little cottage!! Very clean and well restored stone building with a tiny kitchen. Everything we needed to feel comfortable. We slept like babies. It's truly out in the country, a bit of a drive to the towns and cities, but the peace and quiet, and beautiful surroundings, are well worth it. The instructions are accurate and we easily found the cottage. Thank you!
Charming cottage in a beautiful environment. Enrico is a perfect host: helpful, easygoing and very familiar with the region. We loved it.
it is a quaint stone cottage and very comfortable. Michael and Enricho are very helpful and friendly. It is a great location.
Staying at the little dairy cottage was great. very relaxing and quiet. it's a great base to go around the dolomiti park during the days (you need a car). the place is exactly like on the pictures. i recommend staying here.
A cute and pretty little cottage in a lovely peaceful rural location!
The cottage is a beautifully-restored structure by the main building and is fitted with every single item you need to enjoy your stay for several days. You even have a kitchen for those days when you come back home too tired from sight-seeing and you just want to stay in and make you a nice dinner. The bathroom, kitchen and living area are on the lower floor while the beds are on the upper one. We slept like logs since the mattresses were so comfy and the surrounding area so peaceful!
We met Michele (Enrico was not there) and he was a great help. He does speak fluent English and is always available for any need you might have. He gave us great restaurant recommendations: we had one of the greatest meals ever at "Alla Certosa" (Mis) and the food at "Alla Muda" (Sant' Antonio Tortal) was so tasty we did not want to leave the place. And he is in love of the area he lives in and informed us about all the things we could do daytime in the area around. We loved meeting him and could not believe our luck that we had ended up in a place like that. We had just a bit of an issue to get there: the farm is located in Confos. When you get to Trichiana, drive uphill towards Sant'antonio Tortal until you reach the village. Then turn left towards Prenolz and drive past the town's church for about 1 km (turn left at the village, not before it, where you will find another sign to Prenolz). And then you will find on your right the sign to Confos. Turn right and drive for maybe another kilometre. As per how to get to "Alla Muda", drive towards Passo San Boldo (about 10-12 minutes from Sant'antonio Tortal) and you will find the restaurant. You will have to drive up the ramp on the left of the road. Be careful and do not miss it. Otherwise, after just 50 yards, you will find yourself in the San Boldo Pass (a one-lane sequence of tunnels descending towards the plains with eighteen 180 degrees switchbacks carved in the mountains by the Austrian army when fleeing Italy after losing the First World War).
All in all, an absolutely great experience in the Dolomites!! Grazie Michele!!
This beautiful little stone cottage is just as quaint and picturesque as it appears in the pictures. Enrico was kind and welcoming, and provided us with a tasty cold breakfast and unlimited fresh vegetables from the organic garden to supplement our other meals. We had some great interactions with two different neighboring families on the same street and enjoyed some walks around the surrounding farm country. Unfortunately, our stay was not quite as pleasant as it could have been due to the extreme heat during this weekend in August and the horrible mosquitoes that infested the area. The sleeping area in the cottage is in the attic and does not have any AC, fans, or window circulation, so we were extremely warm and it was difficult to sleep. This was compounded by the swarming mosquitoes that left us and our daughter covered with bites and without good sleep for these two nights. Perhaps we will have to try another time of year, but I would not recommend August!
Thank you very much for the wonderful description. We are happy that you and your family were well on our farm. Sorry for the mosquito problem, but we are an organic farm and don't do any chemical treatment. Unfurtunately the mosquito's one of the nature. We raccomand to buy some mosquito repellent or spray in a pharmacy or herbalist shop.
Thanks again and I hope to see you the next time.
This was a great place to spend some time away. The location is relaxing and in the mountains. The Cottage is clean, full of history and is beautifully positioned in the mountains. There is a good kitchen for cooking and a local market nearby to pick up food. Enrico was a great host and gave me good suggestions to visit in the surrounding area. He also invited me to dinner with he and others for a great home cooked meal with fresh food from their farm. Upon my arrival, the owner also drove down the mountain to guide me to the Cottage when my GPS temporarily went out. I had a great stay at this place and can allow suggest it to others.
