Surrounded by stunning forests in a national park this cosy self-contained studio annex, unreachable by car, offers the perfect getaway from the crowds. Experience the incredible wild nature direct from the doorstep and the beautiful views.
Solar power, spring water, homegrown veg, wood fires and the bumpy road offer an authentic off-grid experience. A perfect place to take a break from urban life or have a digital detox. Hike to the monastery of St.Francis and the sacred forests of La Verna.

Boendet
This recently renovated off-grid accommodation, unreachable by car, is situated within the national park of the Casentine Forests and lies beneath the holy mountain of La Verna. Just a 1.5 hour hike from the Santuario of Saint Francis of Assisi and the surrounding sacred forests.

It's the perfect place to go on hikes and immerse yourself in the untouched nature that surrounds the property. It's ideal for keen hikers and lovers of silence.
There are many waterfalls and natural pools for wild swimming within hiking distance from the house.

The room is a private self-contained annex with a small kitchenette in the corner and a private bathroom reachable via a short walk around the property.

The annex is completely off grid, meaning there is no mains electricity. However a small photovoltaic system provides enough electricity for lights and small appliances. There is no fridge or washing machine.
Mountain spring drinking water flows fresh from the tap. There is a wood burning stove for heating (firewood is provided).

Your private bathroom with walk-in shower is completely detached from the annex round the other side of the main part of the property. This involves leaving the annex and walking outside through the garden into the main part of the house via a private entrance. The shower is heated by the house's main boiler system so you'll have constant hot water during your stay without having to do anything.

The annex includes a small kitchenette inside the room equipped with all the cooking equipment you will need including some essential ingredients such as oil, salt, tea, coffee, sugar.

We, your hosts and nieghbours, live and work in the property just a stones throw away from the entrance to the annex. We run a self suffcient small-holding. We produce vegetables, eggs and honey which we offer to our guests. We also have a cow which roams freely around the property.

The annex is suitable for couples, single travelers and couples with a young child.

PLEASE NOTE FOR STAYS DURING THE WINTER....
please be aware that the annex is only heated by a wood fired stove. In the bathroom there is a small gas stove that can be used to pre-heat the room if required. We are at 800m in the mountains so it can sometimes be very cold and wet. We will happily pre-light the stove before your arrival to warm the annex. We will provide you with enough firewood for the whole duration of your stay.

Not a problem at all in the summer but because of the lack of sunlight during the winter months the solar power system provides minimal electricity. It could be that some evenings there may not be any electrical light, but this is quite rare. Especially for short stays there is usually plenty of power for lights and charging phones etc.
It is highly recommended that you bring a torch/flashlight, preferably one which is independent from your phone so you do not rely on your unreliable phone battery. A head torch is ideal, especially for walking to the bathroom at night.

Var du kommer att vara

Chiusi della Verna, Toscana, Italien

This place is best explored on foot. Being in the national park there are many great walks to do directly from the property. La Verna - the monastery of St.Francis - is a 1.5 hour hike each way up the hill, and across the valley is the 'abandoned village' just a 1 hour hike each way.
By car you can visit the many hidden treasures of this still relatively unknown valley in Tuscany called the Casentino. Places such as the castle of Poppi or Il Pieve di Romena in Pratovecchio are definitely worth a visit.
We are also only a 40min drive away from Michelangelo Buonarroti's birthplace - Caprese Michelangelo - and the picturesque town of Anghiari.

Please bare in mind that any daytrips by car will inevitably involve walking up and down the track to get to and from your car. So it's not an ideal place to use as a base to do a lot of sight-seeing. It is however the most perfect place you'll find to escape the tourist trail and just be in the nature and enjoy exploring the forests and mountains on foot.

We are George and Sophie and our kids Caio and India. We live completely off-grid in a National Park in Tuscany. We are passionate about self-sufficiency and sustainable living. We run a small homestead complete with a dairy cow, chickens, bees and a large vegetable garden. We use only solar power for electricity, heat our water with wood and source our water from a fresh mountain spring. We love building things, getting creative in the kitchen and, most of all, being outside and active in nature... whether it's hiking around the mountains or tending to our garden. As hosts it's important to us that our guests are satisfied and we do everything we can to make their stay as comfortable as possible. We offer the opportunity to get taste of our daily life such as chopping fire wood for the wood burners. Staying at our place provides an ideal setting for a back-to-basics experience. As travellers, we like to visit different and beautiful places to experience different environments and ways of living. We're keen to learn different ways of doing and making things and always look for inspiration from others to apply in our own home and lifestyle.

We are living in the main part of the house just a stones throw away so there will be some interaction with us in the outside areas. However, the annex itself is completely independent with it's own kitchen in the corner of the room and private bathroom. We respect your privacy but we're more than happy to interact when necessary and offer advice on walks etc or to give you a hand with anything you may need help with during your stay. Guests are free to enjoy all areas of the property.
