We have constructed Casa Viva from larch and pine wood, straw and lime. We chose a green roof: planted with sedum, a resistant succulant plant. Half of the windows have been recuperated. The floor is made from handmade terracotta tiles.
There are 2 guest houses have altogether 8 rooms. Together with our own house, the guesthouses form a courtyard where we have planted an Empress tree, a species of tree with a very interesting historical background. The courtyard overlooks the magestic Monte Baldo and the surrounding meadows and stables.
At Casa Viva you can reconnect with nature and come back to yourself. Away from the hectic routines of modern life, you have a chance to slow down and relax.
Ciao we are Asya and Marco.
We live in Marciaga with our children where we manage our straw bale guest houses and teach riding at the Corti Gardesane Stables.
Even though we come from very different backgrounds and life experiences we met thanks to our love of horses, nature, beauty and art. We both need to be near nature to stay balanced and for our personal sense of well-being.
Nature is our sole supplier.
For us, connecting with Nature is an intense and immediate way to connect with ourselves. With Casa Viva we have created a space where others may return to this often forgotten and profound simplicity.
A more ecological world is possible.
We live in a historical moment that needs us to reevaluate the way we live demanding us to safeguard our surrounding environment. Here at Casa Viva we wish that others may discover that living closely and more in tune with nature is possible.
Casa Viva is made up of 2 straw bale guest houses with 8 rooms and our private straw bale home which creates a courtyard.
Closeby you will find the pure water of ‘Leela’ our bio pool.
‘Leela’ our bio pool is an ecosystem where aquatic plants and water lillies filter and oxygenate the water of the pool. Along with the insects and the plants the bio pool is an ecosystem and requires a certain attention and care when swimming.
Maintaining the balance of the ecosystem is of utmost importance. For this reason the use of sun creams is forbidden.
Leela means divine, creative, play and mirrors the ecosystem of our planet. Plant and insect life maintain the purity of the water. If the balance of the ecosystem is disturbed the water of the pool loses it’s purity.
On our land not so far away from your room you will find our ecosustainable stables.
We offer lessons for begginer, intermediate and expert riders with the English saddle.
Swimming in water that is alive and crystal clear maintained without the use of chemical products gives a sensation of being completely immersed by nature; it’s regenerative and enchanting and immediately revitalizes the body and mind with fresh energy.
If you sign up, once every two months we will send you an eco letter in your mailbox to tell you about Casa Viva, about nature, ecology and sustainability.
