Welcome"We fly over lakes and woods; different landscapes flow before my eyes. From the green mountains of conifers, to the white purity of the snowy summits and than down to the central and rich valley. At last, round the corner, Aosta with its austere Romanesque atmosphere. On land we rent a car quarrelling about who, between us, will drive; A moment for a quick pop around the B&B to change and then off, but a fragrant smell of coffee envelops my nose... well maybe we can stay a little longer."
A villa overlooking the town of Aosta and characterized by a spectacular winter garden.
A growing family who is looking for a close contact with nature and for more space, who loves that garden so secluded and peopled by tropical plants, inaccessible to foreign eyes but overlooking the mountains surrounding the valley.
A home which has been consciously built observing as much as possible the methods of biobuilding, or a healthier home respecting the environment. The bioecology considers the building as a living organism taking up space without being a barrier between the inner and the outer surfaces and allows men to live in balance.
Simona and Paolo are hospitality enthusiasts and so they have open their home to guests and, as with their family friends, offer a warm welcome, genuine breakfasts and good advices on restaurants and visits. In their home you can breathe a relaxed and quiet atmosphere and the garden, where in summer guests can have breakfast, helps too.
A spectacular but practical livability
In the ample living room, furnishings recall the colours of the garden and evoke nature, the real protagonist of this house. Famous designers’ furnishings blended with restored family ones, comfort and high-tech kitchenette, refined linen coming from grandmother’s trunks or craftmade manufactures.
Outside, relax by candlelight
Plants of every kind find their place in the big winter garden, a real glasshouse sheltering a thick vegetation with picturesque corners where we love to relax even in winter by candlelight.
A privileged sight
Glasshouse is the big atout of the studio/terrace where you can enjoy an extraordinary view being comfortably sat near the glass walls.

Unexpected, a hundred letters appear with refined and sinous handwriting, letters were used to be drawn by the architect-designer-painter Giò Ponti; words that become drawings. Not simply letters, but inventions, delicate ideas, fast thoughts to fix for ever the feeling of friendship or a deep love.
