My bungalow is located in Givigliana, a small village with only 6 inhabitants, 1,100 mt. Extremely quiet and relaxing, it is ideal for spending few days away from the hustle and busted of modern city life. Interiors very basic but it has all the necessary things for a comfortable stay. The closest town are Rigolato and Forni Avoltri 3 km away where you will find few bars, pharmacy, grocery stores, butcher and so on.

The space

The space includes a washing machine and a shower, big fridge and oven and microwave. There is a stove in the kitchen to keep you warm at night because even in the summer can get rather cold. As it has no insulation it is only available during the summer months.

Interaction with guests

This was the holidays house of my mother Dorina and me until 2015. Inside there are personal objects and effects. Please respect them. Use only what we deserved for you.

Other things to note

Be very careful with the fire. Pay attention when you light it and don't leave it opened if you are not at home.

Mel's place is peaceful, calm and idyllic. There are great views, a warm fire and a cosy bed. We loved getting fresh spring water to drink and enjoying the silence and despite bad weather, it was a great base from which to see the area. Mel is lovely, very helpful and considerate. Thank you Mel for 5 fabulous days away from everything.

This place is really a paradise. The house is little, but there was everything we need. The view and the meadow are amazing. The walkings that Mel suggest were very beautifull and not to havy. Mel was very kind and helpfull. We certainly like to come back one time!

Mel's cabin was absolutely charming and couldn't find a better location! Waking up with a coffee in the summer morning to find a breathtaking view at the end of the small meadow was paradise. The cabin stayed very warm with the well-designed wood-burning stove and the bed was very comfortable. Mel was the consumate hostess, ensuring we had all that we needed. The drive to the cabin gives breathtaking views of the valley below, winding through charming alpine villages where you can stop to buy delicious local delicacies on the way to Givigliana. Would highly recommend the white Fruili wines of the region and stopping by the restaurant at Hotel al Sole in Forni Avoltri (Mel's very good recommendation!) where the owner knows her wine well and the prosciutto, braosola and Quail are of the highest quality. Wonderful hiking trails near Hohe Warte with both Italian and Austrian restaurants to choose from to celebrate the end of the hike with a good glass Weissbeer or Fruili at the top of the mountain! But so much more to explore in the short weekend there and Mel knows the region very well and gave the best recommendations for everything we needed! I don't think I need to mention, but would definitely recommend staying at this cabin, either for a romantic getaway for two, or a reconnection with the great outdoors for yourself or small family. We hope to be back soon!

Grazioso bungalow nel ripido paesino di Givigliana. Tranquillità e pace, piccolo ma dotato di ogni comfort.

Amo la natura e la montagna, mi occupo di cultura e arte e sono una giornalista. Vivo in centro e appena posso mi sposto verso le montagne a cercare la luce, l'aria pulita, il verde dei boschi e il bianco della neve.

Ospitare persone diverse in casa mia è un atto di fiducia.
Adoro trovare persone che lo apprezzano e rispettano la casa che metto a loro disposizione. Ed è una bella soddisfazione scoprire che hanno compreso il mio tipo di accoglienza lasciando un bel ricordo di sé.

I love nature and mountains, I'm professionally involved in culture and art like a freelance journalist. I'm living in Udine and in the free time I move to the mountains to search the brilliant light, the clean air, the green of the forest and the snow on the picks.

Hosting people in your home means you have to trust them.
It is very gratifying when I find guests who appreciate this kind of trust and have respect for my place. It is great when they recognise my welcome and leave a good memory of themselves
