By crossing stone arch of an old house by Vie Trento e Trieste 4, you will enter a diffrent world. Dont be suprised that here, rules semi-darkness and chill. House was built four hundred years ago. It is a very old house.
Narrow alleys give you a shadow durning heat and warmth durning winters. House has its scent. It also has a folded personality. Cement floor of main hall have cracks and refractions, and so have beautifully uneven walls in the rooms and stairwell. Just lock the doors behind you. To open them again, pull old hasp to yourself. Never leave the house without a key.
Mind your head. The doors are low here. You are in Italy, local residents are not well known for their height. The hallway and the bathroom (corridoio e bagno) have the youngest design – from the 60s. We kept it unchanged. Therefore, forgive us that there is no wash basin. Little Vasca is perfectly sutied for the task instead. In it, you can wash your hands and legs, also you can use it to do your laundry. Save water. In this year, region was hit by a drought. Water is provided to the house dircetly from the mountain spring. There is not always adequate pressure. Do not get angry that the water can be cold. We need to warmth it by using boiler made in times of John F. Kennedy. The boiler needs time to heat up the water, it also consumes a lot of electricity, so don’t forget to turn it off after usage. Soggiorno e cucina, which means Living room and kitchen, have a real suprise for you. Look with care at the chestnut wood of the ceilings and the wooden beams made of alpine larch. Look at the details. Do you already know what hangers are made out of and from what are curtain rods? Therefore, appreciate that you sleep on somewhat strange pillows, covered with a Cushion cover. If you feel cold, cover yourself with a bedspread. Remember that you are at a considerable height and your body needs time to acclimatize, you might be feeling a little sleepy.
Culture and tradition is living in Casa Antica. You will be surrounded by piece of art made by great artists on a daily basis. Any inconvenience is a low price for such a possibility.
We ask you to remember, don’t enter the balcony, basement and attic. We invite you to use the room with fireplace in it and our library. Please save electricity and water. If you need internet we will give you our WiFi password. Don’t get angry at creaking beds or stairs. You will be amazed by the unevenness of the walls and floor. Nothing here is stylized as you might expect. Here, the only stylization is wood and stone. Do not worry about the fact that the contacts have double holes, thanks to this they fit into Italian and European plugins. Thanks to bats in the area, there are no mosquitoes here, so you can say thanks to our winged friends. Sleep with the window open and you will feel what clean air is. Do not be frightened by the number of stairs, after returning to your reality you will have a good condition. The nearest surroundings are filled with various mountain trails, each has a different difficulity. In the drawers you will find maps of these routes, we will tell you which trail you should visit, and even take you to specially beautiful places.
