The story of Maso Tòttn

The former mountain farm (Maso) was mentioned as such in the cadastral extracts of the municipality of Frassilongo available to us as early as 1840. The building, which was built with natural stones from the area in combination with many of the larch wood elements customary in the valley from the immediate area, probably already existed earlier.
Until the late 1970s, the farm was managed and inhabited by two women farmers who kept their mountain goats and grew potatoes and vegetables on the site (In the local language Mòcheno: Tòttn). On the ground floor below today's access road; In the past there was only a narrow mountain path, the cattle were kept, on the upper floor, today at the level of the access road the peasant women lived and in the (Fienile, haystack under the roof) the hay was stored. In the following years the farm changed some owners until we took over in 2008.
Thereupon we completely restored it according to the rigid requirements of the local authorities without losing the charm of the original and typical valley building. Today the ancient courtyard shines in new splendor and thanks to you it helps to support local sustainable tourism.

Positive consequenzes for body and soul about a stay in the mountains

For a stay at moderate altitudes (1000 to 2500 meters), the body has to adjust to the new situation because of less available oxygen. This may result in increased fatigue and increased shawl requirements. After a few days, however, the organism calms down and the production of red blood cells is accelerated while old blood cells are excreted. This increases blood flow and performance; the person feels more active, more comfortable and more relaxed. Pollen allergic persons can breathe better even during the main flowering season, since altitude air generally contains fewer irritants.
A stay of asthmatics and bronchitis in the high mountains can contribute to a significant decrease in their symptoms and to an improvement in the pulmonary functions. Continued sun hours also relieve skin diseases such as psoriasis and neurodermatitis. The "soft" mountain water regenerates diseased skin and dries it less. For a restful sleep and a lower heart rate during sleep, the scent and aroma of the pinewood bed in the bedroom.
This is, however, according to Wikipedia, scientifically not fully proved, because so far only one study of the Joaneum Research Institute in A-8160 Weiz on the subject is present. Of course, a stay in the mountains does not help to eliminate all short-term illnesses, but it can also be fueled by a generally less frenetic way of life than in everyday life (eg by means of temporary "exile" of mobile phones, tablets, laptops and TV) To provide relief. (This is, of course, not a specific subject, only well-known facts were illuminated).
