The straw is something that goes deep inside yourself. When you decide to build yourself a straw bale house, the straw has satrted yet to change you very deeply, to let you taste to beauty of simplicity and sustainability..

Fan of good music and cinema, good wines and foods, we decided to move here on the mountains and let other people to discover our world.

Daniele, musician and videomaker and Francesca, teacher, they'll receive you and they'll make you really good breakfast, with local and genuine food.

We discovered this small gem by chance and fell in love with it from the first day. Daniele and Francesca have created a little corner of paradise within paradise. Unfortunately, we only spent a few nights there and already want to come back. Highly recommended for those seeking peace and tranquility away from the hectic and chaotic rhythms of big cities. It's certainly just a goodbye! We will definitely return! Laura and Fabio.

For those who want some tranquility, La Casa di Paglia is the ideal place. It almost feels like time stands still. Then the hosts, Francesca and Daniele, are exceptional: discreet but always there to meet any need. The structure enjoys a spectacular view, and having breakfast in the garden was a dream. Absolutely worth repeating.

We had a wonderful stay at Casa di Paglia. The location of the biologically perfect straw and mud house in the blooming gardens around is fantastic. Very relaxing and quiet. The landlords are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is very individual, with high-quality organic products from the region. Every morning there was something special. Homemade cakes, pancakes, eggs of all kinds fresh from the chickens on the farm. One evening Daniele also cooked a dinner, very tasty and something very special! We were very satisfied with the small individual accommodation. The upper room is spacious and bright despite the sloping roof. You have a wonderful view all around into the fantastic mountain world.

Small structure recently built with three comfortable and clean rooms. Relaxation and silence guaranteed. Magnificent breakfast with local products. Beautiful view. Owners available, kind, never intrusive: rely on their advice to explore the surroundings. Some room for improvement for the outdoor spaces, which can be tidied up and made even more enjoyable. Huge potential.

Address to absolutely remember. Exceptional accommodation, breathtaking view, and the tranquility of the place turn your stay into a magical moment. The owners are very welcoming, attentive to the smallest details, and take pleasure in introducing very local products. Moreover, they cook incredibly well. Thanks to them.

Within a few months I returned (this time also with my partner) to the “enchanted” Casa di Paglia where Francesca, Daniele, their sweet son, a beautiful big dog, and funny hens welcomed us warmly. The upstairs room enjoys a breathtaking view with large windows that frame a nature that takes your breath away. The construction of this wooden and straw residence is astonishing! Even the walls of the shower leave you breathless considering the ancient technique of cocciopesto used. The breakfasts are top-notch both for the locally sourced products and for the care with which they are prepared (yogurt, cheeses, cold cuts, honey, jams, rye bread, hazelnut cakes, eggs from the chicken coop downstairs, etc., all at very high levels). Even the informal chats with the hosts and the advice on naturalistic routes were truly valuable. We highly recommend Casa di Paglia. Leonardo and Stefano Narciso d’Autore.

A little gem that Daniele and his wife take care of like a child. They make you feel at home fulfilling your every request. Ask them to describe their work and their eyes will light up. For those seeking absolute peace and the best service. An unimaginable breakfast. Well done and thank you. Keep it up.

We were greeted with courtesy and sympathy, as if we were part of their family while respecting our privacy. Always available to meet our needs. Clean and well-organized environments tastefully furnished. Breakfasts are served in a common but intimate setting. You can appreciate the flavors of healthy, well-prepared food, sweet and savory that satisfy everyone's palate. Thank you, Francesca and Daniele, for your hospitality.

New structure, furnished in a rustic style but with classy details, enjoys an excellent panorama. Appreciable the philosophy of zero km or self-production in breakfast products. A challenge almost to build the structure far from the most important urban centers or tourist stations... you deserve to win it guys! \nMarino and Angela

We had a fantastic time at La Casa di Paglia and Daniel and Francesca are great hosts. \nIt is an absolute plus to be able to sit in the garden (the view!) and the breakfast is truly amazing!\nBring an eyemask if you like your room dark because the curtains are light. \n\nWe'll be back!

A super crush! We had a wonderful stay in this charming house. Francesca and Daniele welcomed us and advised us very well on visits in the area. They offer delicious local products that you can enjoy during the hearty breakfasts. If you're lucky, Francesca might even share the recipe for her fabulous cakes with you. The Straw House is surrounded by very well-kept green spaces, creating a very exotic feel. In summary, a fantastic welcome in a place full of character. We highly recommend this place and look forward to coming back soon!

Mrs. Francesca and Mr. Daniele, it was a splendid stay, although brief. Thank you for everything. I gave a 9 to avoid giving the impression of assigning grades randomly. I think I will come back to you. Keep it up.

My boyfriend and I stayed two nights in this splendid B&B. We had the attic suite, spectacular, with a view of the mountains. La Casa di Paglia is nestled in the greenery and the owners are helpful and very kind. The breakfast is delicious and with lots of 'treats'. We will definitely come back.

I enjoyed a very pleasant stay in this unique B&B. The setting is both beautiful and very quiet, being well away from the road. The building has been beautifully designed and decorated, with a natural theme throughout. Even the washbasin is a carved rock! But the best part is waking up in the morning to the breathtaking view directly from the bed towards Mont Emilius on the other side of the Aosta valley. The hosts were welcoming and made me feel very much at home. The authentic pizza cooked in the clay oven in the garden is highly recommended. The breakfast was also excellent, with all locally sourced ingredients, including a delicious selection of cheeses and ham and freshly made bread by the owner. For mountain lovers, there is a room with a fine collection of books on mountain photography of the Alps.
