La Casa di Paglia sul Lago di Garda

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 adopted
This year we find ourselves in spite of having to share our holiday with the infamous virus which, although fortunately it has hardly affected our area and although it is greatly reducing, is still present everywhere. Without wanting to create unjustified alarmism, however, we need to live our holiday in complete tranquility: our two holiday apartments have completely independent entrances, external terraces for exclusive use and, for the occasion, two reserved areas inside. of the garden, well apart from each other, each for each apartment, equipped with sun loungers and deck chairs. each station has a private garden shower available.
the only parts in common are the small swimming pool (470x270x80) and the parking lot with the short stretch that leads through the garden to the two apartments, 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-button panels etc ... in addition to normal cleaning, sanitation treatments will be carried out according to the regulations that will be issued by the authorities.
The linen will also be treated with sanitizing products and washed at more than seventy degrees as prescribed by the scientific authorities.
Have a good holiday at Casa di Paglia,

The scents of straw, wood and its resin which permeate the house, the luxuriant vegetation, squirrels, pheasants, foxes and hares peeping out from 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 been living in San Felice del Benaco since 2013 when we bought 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 we wish you a good stay.

Our philosophy
We firmly believe in the need to respect and preserve our environmental heritage and all our life choices are oriented in this direction. Our house is built only with wood and straw, clay, natural lime, sand and cork which give 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 are very happy to welcome your pets and we 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 apartment of 75sqm, located on the ground floor, consisting of a large living room with fully equipped kitchen, a double bedroom and one with a single bed and bunk bed, can comfortably accommodate 5 people, has a private bathroom with shower and bidet .
