Mushroom studio sits in the woods outside the small village of Frisanco in the region of Friuli, approximatively 1 hour away from Venice and its airports.
Considered to be among the most beautiful villages of Italy, Frisanco offers breath taking sights and hikes but also some facilities such as few typical bars and restaurants where one can enjoy nice local food and wine. There is also a small grocery store, a pharmacy and post office, so all your urgent needs should be satisfied.
However, 5 minutes drive away there is Maniago, a bigger town – know world wide for its craft of forging knives and swords – where one can find everything they need from shops to food joints and pubs open on flexible time schedules.
The area surrounding the studio is mainly a mountain resort so you definitely can get a lot of proposals in that direction.
We have gorgeous natural climbing walls, amazing hikes, swimmable ponds and lakes, great bike or motorcycle roads and also a tree-house-park for kids. Should you come during the winter you could enjoy the nearby ski resort. We are in love with this location, we hike, climb, ride, swim, ski and know all the little and old wine bars and we would be more than happy to take you around on your free time to make your experience at Mushroom Studio as amazing as possible!
