La Casa di Paglia sul Lago di Garda

  • Apartment
ingresso da via San Fermo presso la casa di paglia - 25010 San Felice del Benaco - Brescia - Italy

our choice to build the Straw House was born from the belief of having to preserve the wonderful environment in which we live. We welcome your pets and hope to share pleasant moments with you.

COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS - measures taken
This year we find ourselves in spite of having to share our holiday with the notorious virus that although fortunately has affected little of our area and although it is strongly reducing, is still present everywhere. Without wishing to create unjustified alarmism, however, we must be able to live our holiday in complete tranquility: our two holiday apartments have completely independent entrances to each other, external terraces for exclusive use and, for the occasion, two reserved areas inside of the garden, well distant from each other, each for each apartment, equipped with sunbeds and deck chairs. each station has a private garden shower.
the only common parts are the small swimming pool (470x270x80) and the parking lot with the short stretch that leads to the two apartments through the garden, here the rule of common sense applies with, if necessary, the possible use of a mask.
at each change all surfaces, glass, handles, switches, push-buttons etc ... in addition to normal cleaning, sanitization treatments will be carried out according to the regulations that will be given by the authorities.
Between one change and another, a one-day break will be carried out to allow all sanitation and ventilation of the premises.
The linen will also be treated with sanitizing products and washed at more than seventy degrees as prescribed by the scientific authorities.
All this may seem distressing, but the holiday is one and must be such, without worries, so ..... good holiday at the Casa di Paglia,

Located on the green hills of San Felice del Benaco between the village and the lake, in a green area of environmental protection, the Straw House is a recently renovated farmhouse according to the principles of green building using natural materials such as wood, straw, cork, pure lime , sand and clay.
The scents of straw, wood and its resin of which the house is permeated, the luxuriant vegetation, the squirrels, pheasants, foxes and hares that peep among the greenery will give you an unforgettable experience of peace and relaxation.

Who we are
Welcome we are Giovanni, Daniela and Carlo, the cats Rufo and Diablo and the dog Pino. We have lived in San Felice del Benaco since 2013 when we purchased this old country house to be able to live in a peaceful environment enjoying the fantastic nature of these places and allowing our son to grow up free and happy. We hope to be able to give you some of this and wish you a good stay.

Our philosophy
We firmly believe in the need to respect and preserve our environmental heritage and all our lifestyle choices are oriented in this direction. Our house is built only with wood and straw, clay, natural lime, sand and cork which gives it a particular healthiness, cool in summer and warm in winter and which have a very low environmental impact. The whole house is powered by electricity from alternative energy sources, the detergents used, which we will make available to you, are certified biodegradable products. We welcome your pets very much and hope to share these simple but fundamental principles with you.

The house consists of two apartments dedicated to hospitality, exclusively family run, bright and comfortable:

the ULIVO 75sqm apartment, located on the ground floor, consisting of a large room with a perfectly equipped kitchen, a double bedroom and one with a single bed and a bunk bed, can comfortably accommodate 5 people, has a private bathroom with shower and bidet . Outside, overlooking the garden, in the shade of large walnut and olive trees, a spacious terrace for EXCLUSIVE USE, equipped with a table with benches, where your animals can stay in absolute safety.

The WALNUT apartment of 60sqm, located on the ground floor, consists of a large equipped kitchen, a large bedroom with double bed and single bed, bathroom accessible to the disabled. The terrace for EXCLUSIVE USE, equipped with a table and benches shaded by a large walnut tree, overlooks the common garden, with a fenced area for your pets.

Two AREAS OF RELEVANCE have been created inside the garden, one each apartment, well spaced from each other, equipped with sunbeds and deckchairs where you can relax in total safety.

It is possible to use the "HOME DELIVERY" service for the delivery of breakfast and meals by restaurants.

It only takes a few minutes on foot to reach the beaches of the port and Baia del Vento where you can rent pedal boats, sup boards and canoes, there is a space equipped for children and a restaurant. From the small harbor you can embark for a visit to the spectacular island of Garda and have a good aperitif while enjoying the view of the Rocca di Manerba.
The old town center, very welcoming, full of good restaurants, bars, banks, supermarkets, butchers, bakers, fishmongers, pharmacies, can be reached in about 15 minutes on foot. Every Wednesday morning the square hosts a quiet market where you can buy tasty dishes: fruit, vegetables, cheeses, honey. With a walk along the cycle and pedestrian path, through olive groves, vineyards and beautiful views of the lake and the island of Garda, you can reach the villages of Cisano with the seventeenth-century Palazzo Cominelli and Portese with its medieval castle. The summer evenings are full of events, festivals and music, you will certainly not be bored! In a few minutes by car you can reach the Rocca di Manerba park and the splendid town of Salò with its lakeside promenade and the lively Saturday morning market.

You can dedicate yourself to five-a-side football matches or exciting mini-golf challenges in the nearby sports center; you can make beautiful excursions with sup boards or canoe from the beach of Baia del Vento.
Starting from the house, walking or jogging, you can quickly reach the panoramic cycle-pedestrian track that, passing through the port, quickly climbs into the village and from there, descends towards the Baia del Vento and then quickly leads back to the Casa di Straw.
For lovers of hiking or biking, there are wonderful itineraries, from the easiest and most relaxing to the most demanding ones that follow the paths of the nearby mountains. In this regard, it is possible to rent e-byke. I am a lover of trekking and I would be happy to be able to accompany you to discover the most beautiful and wild corners of our mountains
For free-climbers, the equipped walls overlooking the lake of Rocca di Manerba offer unforgettable suggestions. In nearby Casto it is possible to practice via ferratas of various difficulties, from the simplest, but no less beautiful, suitable also for children, to the most difficult. Equipment can be rented on site. Then there is Arco (TN) reachable in an hour's drive, a climbing paradise.
For golf lovers there are many opportunities: Colombaro in Cunettone di Salò, Garda Golf in Soiano del lago (BS), Arzaga Golf in Cazzago di Calvagese della Riviera (BS) and Golf Bogliaco in Bogliaco (BS).
The passion for cross-country swimming in the lake has developed in recent years and in particular groups of swimmers compete every evening armed with wetsuits and buoys around the island of Garda starting from the nearby Baia del Vento.
You can go surfing or kitesurfing in Campione or paragliding from Mount Pizzoccolo to enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the lake.
During the winter one hour's drive you can reach magnificent and still genuine mountains, not invaded by mass tourism, where you can practice winter sports: downhill skiing, cross-country skiing and ski mountaineering as well as making beautiful excursions with snowshoes.

A few steps from home on the border between San Felice and Portese there is the spa of Villa Luisa or
