Eco holidays at Lake Garda

You’ll find us in the hills between Garda and Costermano.

You’ll find Casa Viva at Maraciaga, a small hamlet in the hills about 5km from Lake Garda and in the foothills of Monte Baldo between the towns of Garda and Costermano.

You’ll discover a very peaceful area close to the woods, along the Health Walk of Costermano, the bike path and the Bridle Way.

Vacanze Eco in Natura al Lago di Garda

Lake Garda

We love Garda for its alpine and Mediterranean environments, its microclimate, the richness of its biodiversity, the small villages each one different and each one with its own history, the quality of the food and people who live here.

Where are we?

We are in the hills between Garda and Costermano, 10km from the exit from the A22 motorway at Affi and 3km from Lake Garda.

If you are coming from the lakeside, you get to us quickly from Garda going through Marciaga. If you are coming from the A22 motorway, get to us through Costermano and Castion Veronese.

Horses are patient and empathetic beings and you will wonder at the emotions they stimulate: it is these emotions that, with our help, will let you relax and let go of your stresses.

The Window of Truth

This is like a small picture which you will find in all our rooms which explains how we have built the Straw House Casa Viva. You will sleep in a living room scented by Nature.

Giardino sul tetto di Casa Viva a Garda

Garden on the Roof

Sedum is a succulent which filters the air like lungs. It is a bright green plant which needs sun and stores water in its leaves. If you look closely at the roof, you will see its different shapes and brilliantly coloured flowers.

Colazione con Prodotti Locali a Casa Viva Garda

Local products for breakfast

Besides the fruit and vegetables from our vegetable patch, we choose only local environmentally friendly grown products from local producers who offer healthy things that sustain communities and realise certain values. Eco friendly for us is an ethical choice that gives benefits to Man, animals and the environment.

Infissi di Riciclo a Casa VIva Garda

Recycled fixtures

The walls of Casa Viva are built around the fixtures and non the other way round! Doors and window frames are one off recycled pieces because we believe in using what we already have on our planet without throwing more things away and thus creating something new from something old.

Water at 13C

The water is 13C and comes from our well - it is this water that is fed through pipes under the terracotta floor. This is a technique known as Free Cooling: natural air conditioning which keeps things fresh in the summer and no need for other air conditioning.
