We are in Basiglio, a small town in the province of Milan, in Lombardy, Basiglio includes the residential district of Milano 3. Many people love this town because of its peace and quiet and its healthy environment, it is located at the gates of the busy Milan. It is an enchanted place, surrounded by the green countryside of Lombardy, amid paddies, karst springs, watercourses and the typical streets. Here, where we were born and raised, we decided to renovate our old barn, to turn it into a comfortable Agritourism named"le Risaie" (meaning: PADDY FIELDS).
This unique building has 11 nicely appointed independent rooms that are refined, comfortable and bright, decorated with details of the original agricultural structure: Exposed wood beam ceilings, sloping roofs, bricks, arches and vaults in an environment that is suitable for any type of necessity, if you are on a business trip or on a pleasure holiday. Moreover, our Agritourism has a common area with a well-equipped kitchen for guests and a spacious lounge where you can have breakfast and enjoy together.
There are also 3 spacious, bright and functional apartments created by the porch of the farmhouse, that can have up to 5/6 beds. Our Agritourism is also eco-friendly, indeed it is endowed with photovoltaic panels and geothermal plant, and it was built with low-impact materials. We made conscious choices that contribute to energy saving and preservation of the environment. The building is self-sufficient in energy production thanks to an annual output of more than 50,000 kwatt/h of electricity and the adoption of modern heat pumps that ensure both winter and summer air-conditioning and domestic hot water in the rooms. The result is a saving of 9 tons of oil and 22 tons of CO2 per year.
