“The gray of the stone walls and rooftops and the essential expression of these architectures are softened by the presence of a few colors like the young blossoms of the fruit trees in the springtime”.
As well as the splendid mountain that surround us, the Living Mountain is also characterized by the traditional buildings encountered as you venture in its territory. The contrast between the typical gray color and the green of the natural surroundings, immediately catch your eye. The buildings have maintained their typical ancient façade, a testimony to a past when these same buildings had important functions. They were, in fact, used as drying rooms for chestnuts, lodgings for the shepherds during the seasonal pasture, and as shelter for small animals during inclement weather. Distributed on two levels, they were built in stone or brick with gable style or steeply pitched rooftops.
Today, some of these rural lodgings have been renovated into apartments, available to the Estate’s guests.
