✨New 2024: Creative Retreat

The rooms bright and lively rooms perfumed by nature

We have 8 well-lit and spacious rooms for 2 to 4 people, each built of larch and fir, straw and clay. The colours are soft and welcoming, the air is fresh and clean, and very natural.

We have used Straw as it absorbs and releases moisture, takes out carbon dioxide from the air and keeps your room fresh in the summer and warm in the winter. Water from the well flows under the old terracotta flooring to keep the room fresh in the summer and we use this system for heating in the winter.

The house has green roofs made of Sedum, a many coloured succulent plant and a natural lung that, with the straw, filters the air and ensures freshness in the rooms. The doors and windows are all of different shapes and dimensions because we have used recycled fixtures. All the furnishings are handmade from larch and fir by local artists.

Each room has a “window of truth” where we show you the straw, the horizontal straw canes and plaster that we have used to build Casa Viva.

Our Natural Swimming Pool

Near your room you will find the pure water of our Natural Swimming Pool, “Leela”. A Natural swimming pool is an ecosystem balance of plants, lotuses and water lilies. Swimming in water that has been cleaned and re-oxygenised only by plants give you more energy straight away.

Cavallo del Maneggio Corti Gardesane a Garda

The Riding Stables

On our land, a short distance from your room, you will find our Riding Stables with numerous horses and ponies. We can arrange lessons for beginners and experts of the English riding style and summer camps.

This is how Casa Viva breathes

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.

Pavimento in Cotto nelle stanze di Casa Viva a Garda

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.

Passeggiate con Cavalli al Maneggio di Casa Viva a Garda

Horses

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.

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.
