nature lodge

“house of joy…”

Casa Gioia

As its Italian name indicates —Gioia— this house means “joy”.

The idea of the lodge was born in Futaleufú back in 2010 with Stefano Gioia, with the intention of creating a beautiful space for travelers to meet and share adventure stories around the fire. And to get a good night’s rest, of course.

In 2017 I moved to Ensenada with my delightful pet partner Gioia and started building. Soon, Totó would join us. The house has grown with the support of amazing workers, family, friends and volunteers. And finally, after three years in the making, we’re ready to present it!

Welcome to Casa Gioia!
