July is the month when the sea of pastures that surround Viscri is ripe for harvest. Generation after generation, the inhabitants of these lands gathered the hay with the strength of their arms and the help of their animals. Laborious and time-consuming, this ancient practice has ensured the conservation of an astonishing diversity of wildflowers, including many species extinct in the rest of Europe. It is a valuable but fragile heritage in need of protection that attracts biologists and enthusiasts among whom HRH Prince Charles of Wales.

So roll up your sleeves and join a local family at a day’s work in the pastures. They’ll give you a horse-run cart ride to the fields and show you how to use a scythe or a fork. And if you’re losing your breath, lie down in the perfumed grass and enjoy a copious picnic prepared by us or even sleep at the refreshing shadow of a tree.
