“The house in the country” is the shelter and tranquillity for the wayfarer, “a small vegetable plot” is the laboriously worked land that offers genuine and seasonal produce, “a source” is the well water that restores the daily fatigues and “the copse” is the warmth of wood and of the reserved hospitality.

The “La Torre” complex was the fortified part of the small village of Chiassa Superiore, the former early medieval Longobard defensive castle, mentioned as far back as 1163 in a diploma of Federico Barbarossa: “Castrum etiam turris de classe”. The various constructions are composed on a fulcrum of a paved internal space; this manorial system connects the main residence with the farm annexes, where today the five suites are located, and with the chapel of which the present structure dates from 1756.

The structure consists of five suites, an independent single villa named “Baiellina”,
an old “Torrino”, a pool, a reception and a shop selling home-farm produce and hand crafted items. The rooms feature the original jambs, stones and architraves in an “imperfect harmony” with internet, satellite TV and air conditioning.
