The Millstone, lodging in the woods
Immersed in nature, far away from traffic but yet comfortable to reach all the main Venetian tourist locations.
Hospitality becomes an unique experience, synergical with the habitat and biodiversity which can be found in a forest, paradoxically enriched by the contrast offered by the heartbeat-awayhills of Prosecco, UNESCO heritage of humanity, as well as Asolo, the wonders of Canova, Bassano del Grappa, Treviso, Padova and the nearby historical city of Venice and the countless and charming cultural offers of our area, made however more and more chaotic and “neurotic” by the consumer use of modern tourism.
Be involved in the visit of the so close Prosecco hills, UNESCO heritage of humanity,Asolo the wonders of Canova Bassano del Grappa, Treviso, Padova, the Brenta riviera with the Venetian Villas, the nearby Venice and many more, through new and different paths where the activities of study and research, the laboratories, connect nature, environment, art, history, food and wine, literature, sustainability and even beyond.
Discover the woods, our mountains, the history and biodiversity they preserve, the energy that they contain.
Discover new paths to feel an unique experience, complete, where the senses can be satisfied at 360 degrees. Where the word “taste” canbe associated with food, art, architecture, history, environment, butalso the taste of doing things right in a sustainable, curious, and yet fun way.
This is all you can incredibly find, rediscover in our location, in this unique place where The Millstone can be found.

The Millstone, an old mill, now a lodging immersed in 2ha (20.000 square meters) of private wood in the venetian Pre-Alps, spurs of the Grappa range (45°53’25.9” N 11°54’15.0” E).
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 magnificent “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.
