Surrounded by stunning forests in a national park this cosy self-contained studio annex, unreachable by car, offers the perfect getaway from the crowds. Experience the incredible wild nature direct from the doorstep and the beautiful views.
Solar power, spring water, wood-fires and the bumpy road offer an authentic off-the-grid experience. A perfect place to take a break from urban life or have a digital detox. Hike to the monastery of St.Francis and the sacred forests of La Verna.

Indawo
This charmingly renovated off-grid retreat, unreachable by car, is situated within the national park of the Casentine Forests and lies beneath the sacred mountain of La Verna. (This distinctive mountain is featured in the background of some of Michelangelo's most famous paintings such as ' The Creation of Adam'.)
It's the perfect place to go on hikes and immerse yourself in the untouched nature that surrounds the property. It's ideal for keen hikers and nature lovers. There are many waterfalls and natural pools for wild swimming within hiking distance from the house.
The annex is completely off grid, meaning there is no mains electricity. However a small photovoltaic system provides enough electricity for lights and small appliances. There is no fridge or washing machine.
Mountain spring drinking water flows fresh from the tap. There is a wood burning stove for heating (firewood is provided).
Your private bathroom with walk-in shower is completely detached from the annex round the other side of the main part of the property. This involves leaving the annex and walking outside through the garden into the main part of the house via a private entrance. The shower is heated by the house's main boiler system so you'll have constant hot water during your stay without having to do anything.

The annex includes a small kitchenette equipped with all the cooking equipment you will need including some essential ingredients such as oil, salt, tea, coffee, sugar.

The annex is suitable for couples, single travelers and couples with a young child.
Pets are welcome.

PLEASE NOTE
For off-season stays during the colder months of the year please be aware that the annex is only heated by a wood fired stove. There is no heating at all in the bathroom. We are at 800m in the mountains so it can be very cold and wet. For winter bookings we will happily pre-light the stove before your arrival to warm the annex. We will provide you with enough firewood for the whole duration of your stay.

Because of the lack of sun, and daylight in general, during the winter months the solar power system provides very minimal electricity. It's very likely that some evenings there may be no electrical light at all. In these situations there are candles already provided in the house for you to use. But for your own comfort it is highly recommended that you bring a torch/flashlight, preferably one which is independent from your phone so you do not rely on your unreliable phone battery. A head torch is ideal, especially for walking to the bathroom at night.

Ukungena kwesivakashi
You'll have access to all areas of the property. The room and private bathroom have independent private entrances. There is an outdoor garden space with outdoor table and seating area for your own personal use, however it is not completely seperated from the general outdoor space around the rest of the property so some interaction with us, and our kids, will be inevitable.

Ezinye izinto okumele ziqashelwe
The property is not reachable by normal car. It is only possible to reach the house with a 4x4 vehicle with high ground clearance. There is a safe place to park your car at the bottom of our 3km-long extremely bumpy road. For arrival and departure we provide a shuttle service up and down the track in our Landrover. It's about a 15min drive up, or a rewarding 30min walk up through the forest.
If you are travelling with your own 4x4 it is very important that it has very high ground clearance, otherwise you will risk damaging your vehicle. A 4x4 with equal ground clearance to a Landrover defender is necessary.


Please be aware that there is no fridge or washing machine at the house. The solar system is not powerful enough to run large appliances.

There is no wifi connection at the house but there is 4G data signal outside.

The nearest supermarket is a 25min drive from the bottom of our track. The nearest restaurant/pizzeria is 10min drive from the bottom of the track.

Due to the lack of public transport in the area it is only possible to reach the house if you have your own car, or if you're hiking from other nearby accommodations.

Chiusi della Verna, Tuscany, i-Italy

This place is best explored on foot. Being in the national park there are many great walks to do directly from the property. La Verna - the monastery of St.Francis - is a 1.5 hour hike each way up the hill, and across the valley is the 'abandoned village' just a 1 hour hike each way.
By car you can visit the many hidden treasures of this still relatively unknown valley in Tuscany called the Casentino. Places such as the castle of Poppi or Il Pieve di Romena in Pratovecchio are definitely worth a visit.
We are also only a 40min drive away from Michelangelo Buonarroti's birthplace - Caprese Michelangelo - and the picturesque town of Anghiari.

Please bare in mind that any daytrips by car will inevitably involve walking up and down the track to get to and from your car. So it's not an ideal place to use as a base to do a lot of sight-seeing. It is however the most perfect place you'll find to escape the tourist trail and just be in the nature and enjoy exploring the forests and mountains on foot.

We are George and Sophie, Caio and India from the UK, but lucky to live completely off-the-grid in a National Park in Tuscany. We are passionate about self-sufficiency and sustainable living. We have a large vegetable garden, use only solar power for electricity, heat our water with wood and source our water from a fresh mountain spring. We love building things, getting creative in the kitchen and, most of all, being outside and active in nature, whether it's hiking around the mountains or tending to our garden. As hosts it's important to us that our guests are satisfied and we do everything we can to make their stay as comfortable as possible. We offer the opportunity to get taste of our daily life in the nature such as chopping fire wood for the wood burners. Staying at our place provides an ideal setting for a back-to-basics experience. As travellers, we like to visit different and beautiful places to experience different environments and ways of living. We're keen to learn different ways of doing and making things and always look for inspiration from others to apply in our own home and life

Phakathi nokuhlala kwakho
We are living in the main part of the house just a few meters away so some guest interaction will be unavoidable. However, we'll give you space and respect your privacy. We're more than happy to interact when necessary and offer advice on walks etc or to give you a hand with anything you may need help with during your stay.
