The recent earthquake hitting Centre of Italy and Umbria has not affected Casa della Pace. We are far enough from the center of the event and shakes were perceived, but very lightly.
From 2016 summer three yurts are available to guests: they are very comfortable tents, each having two single beds or one double, electric light, door and windows, wood floor. They have been built using natural materials: chestnut wood for the main structure, cotton and pure wool for covering and insulation. The roof is in PVC to ensure a perfect protection in case of rain. They are really cosy and beautiful.
Comments of who stayed there are enthusiastic and full of wonder for the comfort and the closeness to nature. Surely it is an experience out of the ordinary.
The whole structure has been realized and designed by us; features are the octagonal basis and the self-supporting chestnut poles of the roof allowing to skip the use of any central support.
During the springtime of 2015 all our bathrooms has been refurbished. They have new shower boxes and the water pressure has been improved thanks to the installation of a new pump.
In the summer of the same year two new external bathrooms has been realized. They will serve a little camping. Before the summer of 2016, two yurts will be available for use of the guests. The yurts are very comfortable tents with a wooden floor, door, electric light, and furnished with beds and cabin.
It will be possible, also, to camp with your own tent, or with a tent that we will provide you, at a reduced price.
