The Campo Cortoi has five refurbished stone houses (locally known as Rustico) with a capacity to accommodate up to 30 guests and is suitable for school classes, clubs or private holidays. Awaiting you in the village of Mergoscia is a wonderful, natural experience. During your stay, cooking is done on wood stoves with the energy for electricity and hot water generated exclusively by solar panels. You will support Stefanie and Mario on four out of the five days helping out with various jobs and activities such as getting supplies from the valley with the aid of the donkeys. On your free day you have leisure time to explore the village, its panoramic paths and the impressive Vogorno Lake which is nearby Volunteer work and activities: During four days you will perform a voluntary work assignment.
