Il Filo d’Erba is a project founded in 2015, that is taking shape following the desire to combine the pleasure of hospitality with the passion for art and gardening. The lodging is located in a characteristic Milanese house of 1930, completely restored in 2016 seeking to preserve its “Vecchia Milano” atmosphere, while at the same time completely renovating facilities and technological equipment with a special focus on energy efficiency.
The house is located in the heart of Baggio, historic district of Milan. Access from a small private street, along with the property’s garden in front of the house and the large park of the historic elementary schools with its century old trees, which surround it on the other three sides, create a unique context. Many visitors tell us that here it does not seem like Milan given the atmosphere of tranquility that is taken in. We prefer to say that this is a place close to what you need, but far from the city chaos (which we don’t need!).
The name “Il Filo d’Erba” (blade of grass in Italian) originates from the work of Eugène Guillevic, a Breton poet who inspired us with his verses on a green utopia.
