Owners and hosts Margareth and Pio Canins decided to erect a sustainable and ultra-low-energy building that is certified standard A CasaClima. Their philosophy behind it “focuses on people and their desire to live in an eco-friendly and healthy environment.”
The 24 luxury eco-apartments in San Cassiano blend “age-old culture and modernity”. They are characterized by low energy consumption, compact design and a high level of thermal insulation.
Inspired by nature, the residence was created with natural materials such as new and reused local timber, loam, wooden and stone floors, and choice loden and linen fabrics.
Each apartment features cooking facilities and can accommodate from 2 to 6 people on a B&B basis. Continental breakfast changes daily, offering breads, herbal teas and jams made by the owner. Guests may also pre-order a shopping crate and organic box with South Tyrolean specialties, and local organic food, fruit and vegetables. The organic box can be delivered to guests’ doorsteps three times a week and fresh bread and rolls every day.
LA PALSA (which means relaxation) is the mountain residence’s wellness area (shown above). It features a Finnish sauna, a steam bath, a low-temperature sauna, crushed-ice well and rest area. Guests can enjoy a range of wellness treatments here including softpack baths, beauty treatments, massages and bodywork.
Other services include its mountain bike area with its bike rentals, equipment, Garmin navigation devices, route maps to lunch boxes.
