Excellent place to escape from the big city life.
Imagine a 200 year old italian house halfway up the mountain surrounded by a forest.
The region is very nice if you are a nature enthusiast. It has a great variety of birds and in the evening you can even see fireflies. Sometimes you hear distant bells of passing lambs and sheep.
The air is so clean that you forget about insomnia. You sleep deeply and wake up rested.
The house has been restored and has modern amenities such as an intelligent heating stove, dishwasher, induction stove, fridge, and heated rack in the bathroom to dry the towels. The property also has a shared laundry room with a washing and drying machine.
The apartment we stayed in had an extra room which we didn't see in the pictures and it was a nice surprise.
For remote working there is one desk and an extra long kitchen table which can be divided into an eating area and a work area.
As a small negative point, the tables and the chairs were not too comfortable to work at.
The region is perfect if you are into hiking. Popular spots such as Oasi Zegna and Oropa are accessible by car in 30-40 min. It's also even closer to the town of Biella which has excellent shops and cute restaurants.
Valentina and Fabrizio are great hosts. We didn't communicate much because we spent almost all our free time travelling. But whenever we had questions they were happy to help.
In the vicinity itself it's only the forest and the village of Bioglio if you walk far enough. I am not sure about the shops/restaurants in Bioglio since we always went straight to Biella. A few hundred meters from the property we saw a road sign for a bus but not sure how often it passes. A car is a must in this region. It can get you in no time to Biella where you have access to everything you may need.
