We like the yellow leaves falling from the trees, we like the wind, we like the little ideas, we like the power that each one of us has to transform the world, we like utopia and freedom, we like it when one stranger helps another, we like to travel with a book, to work the soil, to make plants grow, to create objects, we like difference and diversity, we like very small things and very, very big things and we like what they have in common. We like the fast moments that linger in time. We like metamorphoses and the power of change. We like convictions and goodwill. We like imagination and creativity. We like justice, we like equality. We like the past and uninteresting stories. We like to separate what is essential from what is not and to define priorities. We value the ability to put ourselves in the place of others, whether they are from the past or from the future, neighbors or foreigners, whether they are people with different beliefs, animals, plants or aliens. We like the people we like we like meeting new people. As hosts, we like to help our guests get to know things, but we take pride in respecting their quietness and privacy.

Because despite being close to the city, it allows us to sleep quietly, surrounded by silence, as if we lived in the countryside. Because we can go out for a walk without needing a car. Because here there are still good neighborly relations, because it is a place with history and it’s surrounded by beautiful natural spaces. Because it is a unique house situated in a village with its own identity.
