Wild with Style

We have five Yurts. Four of them are for 2 persons till a maximum of 4 persons, and one of them, bigger size, is for maximum 5 persons.
Inside there is a comfortable double bed with bedside tables, a sofa-bed, wardrobe and chairs. Outside there is a common area, La Locanda (The Inn) with table and garden chairs.
Each yurt has a different color, like the private bathrooms. Our guests receive their own key the day of arrival.

The yurt is the traditional dwelling of the Mongolian nomads  , who  consider it their home.  Different variations of the yurt can be found in many other areas, ranging from the Republic of Tuva,  to Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and to the region of Turkestan. This nomadic dwelling is made of natural materials, it is simple and functional, durable and lightweight, aesthetically agreeable and welcoming.
A grid of wooden slats forms the circular perimeter of the tent; two central beams of about 3 mt. in height support the central circle or “crown” of the tent.  The crown is connected to the circular wooden grid by a set of long flexible rods, like the spokes of an umbrella, that form the dome-like roof the tent. This extremely light and elastic wooden skeleton supports the entire structure, with a diameter that varies from 4 to 10 meters.
Four of our yurts have a diameter of 5 meters, which allows the structure to support itself without the need of the central beams, and they have a floor  area of approx. 20 square meters. The one of 6.6 mt has the additional central wooden support of the 2 central beams.
The construction remains strong thanks to the play of opposing forces created by the different weights and different pressures.
Usually the floor is the natural soil and it is traditionally covered with thick carpets of wool or felt, that provide an insulating shield from outside temperatures.
In our case, each yurt is built on a wooden platform that is raised approx. 20/30 cm. above the ground, to make it cool and dry. The floor is therefore made of wooden planks.
Felt is another typical material used in the yurt.  It is produced by the nomads themselves and it covers  the entire surface of the tent.  Felt is an excellent protection and above all a perfect thermal insulator.  Even when outside temperatures reach –40°, the yurt inside remains warm, whilst in summer the warm air rises through the upper hole of the crown, leaving the inside temperature agreeably fresh.

The yurt is a traditional nomadic dwelling and therefore it is not a fixed structure.  When it’s time to move, at the the change of  season, its elements are easily and quickly disassembled, they are loaded on carts pulled by animals and transferred to their new destination.
Nomads keep only what is essential and, to make their journey light, they move with neither material nor mental ties. Our guests can experience a little this feeling of freedom during their stay, allowing them to share the uniqueness of living in a yurt.

The yurt is an eco-sustainable house not only because it respects the environment, but also because it respects its dweller. If you've experienced the yurt, you may be seized by a sudden thought that  living  in cubic houses is unnatural!
In a round house you feel immediately welcome, like returning to the mother’s womb. Suddenly all those present, from strangers they become almost like a family. You feel embraced, you experience a sense of unity. The yurt is a "human" space, that limits  our mental superstructures, helping us find  a natural feeling of togetherness.

The information on the yurt are taken from the article:
  "The eco-sustainable house?  It’s more than a thousand years old"

Ecco lo spazio dedicato ad alcuni inquilini pelosi (o piumati) che potreste incontrare all'Agriturismo Fattoria La Prugnola.
Per primi, in quanto a numero, i nostri gatti.
Memole è la mamma di 5 fratelli e sorelle, Romeo, il rosso, Falco cacciatore indefesso o dormiglione casalingo a seconda delle ore de giorno, Maya, infaticabile dispettosa, e le timide Lulù e Nina.
Tra i nostri coinquilini ci sono anche Febo, il gatto bianco, terrore di lucertole e topastri e le affettuose Carolina, bianca e grigia e Micia, nera con puntino bianco.
A tenere alto l'onore dei cani il mitico Tuco. Lui sì che fa la guardia. Ligio al dovere si addormenta sodo sulla porta di casa, rendendo impossibile a chiunque ogni possibile accesso.
Ormai è diventato un grande amico dei gatti, come si suol dire, di necessità virtù!
Ci sono poi le oche, loro sì da guardia, guai ad avvicinarsi troppo, si fanno sentire meglio dell'allarme.
Ultime, ma non meno importanti, sono le nostre galline, le uniche che, in cambio delle nostre cure e attenzioni, ci ricambiano con la loro produzione di uova!

Aspettiamo di conoscere i vostri amici del cuore, che sono ben accetti nelle case Le Capinere da 2+2 persone, Gli Ulivi e I Noci da 4+2  persone.
