Wooden cabin at the edge of the forest
Our B and B is OPEN from mid-April to mid-October.
It is a restored wooden cabin, just outside the woods (loads of birds throughout the day, but you might also see butterflies, crickets, wildbores, foxes...)
Water comes from the rain and a winter spring, the energy comes from solar pannels, the water is heated by a solar thermosyphon. It is insulated with local sheeps' wool and cork from Sicily and Portugal. Wood comes from EU forests and mostly local. Paints are all home made from linseed oil and natural pigments. Furniture is either recycled or home made.
