Habitat 3650 is hospitality in the luxury of nature, in a genuine environment, lost in thousands of square meters of biodiversity.
THE MILLSTONE(the house in the woods)
The guests of Habitat 3650 “ECO CABIN” can immerse themselves in the green of nature, to enjoy the benefits for their health.
The Millstone, an old mill, now immersed in 2ha (20.000 square meters) of private wood in the venetian Pre-Alps, spurs of the Grappa range.
We are at about 800-mt height above sea level, between the municipalities of Belluno and Treviso, by the small town of Monfenerea, which offers a panoramic view of 360 degrees over the Feltrine peaks, but also on the Venetian plain, on Venice, on the Asolane and Prosecco hills (UNESCO heritage) and on the Piave river.
The view is certainly not the only suggestive element of this singular place, here you can walk in the “sheltered walkways” and “trenches” which show the events of the Great war. Right here under the peak, 1 minute from the residence, the trenches of Doc are located, and from there a path that leads to the Mandria peak starts, passing by the trenches of Castel Cesil and the Monte Palon.
With time, it has become an ideal place also for naturalistic strolls, field trips, trekking, nordic walking, cycle tourism, mountain bike, hang-gliding and paragliding.
The building is made of two floors, the ground floor made of local rock and the first floor in bricks with a wooden roof, a “larin” (traditional fireplace) and panoramic balcony on the Grappa and the Feltrine peaks.
The accommodation, for 6/8 beds, 2 restrooms, a cooking zone, a dining room and and a big space to be used as living room with double height is furnished and supplied with everything needed for the stay.
“Guests can also practice Shirin-Yoku, which means “forest bathing”, an ancient japanese discipline to cultivate happiness and live longer. It has to do with “breathe in the atmosphere of the woods” to gain psychophysical benefits. Today it is an officially recognized method in Japan to prevent illnesses and to promote their cure. The Shirin-Yoku is, actually subsidized by the Japanese health care system. It has scientifically proven that this kind of activity reduces stress, because it lowers the levels of cortisol (see University of Chiba – Japan and University of Illinois – USA), reduces aggression and depression (see University of Kyoto – Japan) and supports memory and attention (see Michigan University – USA). Furthermore it stabilizes the pulse rate and blood pressure, lowers the glycemic level in the blood and helps to sleep better.”
