Can a sparkling evening be enjoyed between cold walls?
Your friends' enthusiasm, the taste of good food and the curious stories told will give you your answer.

The fire is kindled and the table is set. Sitting on the stone benches, it's time to start the banquet. One friend tastes cheese, another cuts the bread, and a third tastes a slice of salami: the evening will satiate both your body and your spirit.

These delicacies will taste even better if you have brought them with you in your backpack, as the walk to reach the rustic cottage is part of the programme. In this little village among the mountains you feel small, but at the same time protected. It is here that you want to spend the night in total silence, with a sense of intimate place, far from the chaos of daily life and in good company. The rustic cottage you have rent is just waiting for you and your friends to be warmed up.

So, let the dances begin! The small impromptu party does not go unnoticed. On the contrary, it attracts the attention of a neighbour who lives in the rustic cottage next door. So, the evening becomes even more interesting. The stories the lady tells open up a whole new world to you. Through these stories you learn the history of these rustic cottages and you discover that they were built entirely by men, stone by stone.  

Among words, songs and toasts the table is becoming increasingly bare. The fire slowly goes out and only the embers remain. Well, it's now time to go to bed. Sweet dreams!

What to put in your backpack

To spend an evening in the mountains, you'll need some candles and firewood, because the stars are not enough, a songbook and a guitar to cheer the evening around the fire as well as a "salamino" sausage and a bottle of wine to toast with.
