Casa Gioia Di Vivere
Imagine relaxing nestled in the majesty of the Colorado mountains just minutes from ski slopes, sledding, hiking trails, fishing, river rafting and all that the cool clear air at 8,700 ft altitude brings. Images of the old west, fine dining and historic atmosphere. A day trip to the delightful western town of Durango with its many unique and wonderful restaurants, galleries, shopping and historic train ride to Silverton is close by with our home away from home as your base. Maybe take a step back in time to enjoy a peaceful hike in the incredible mountain village of Ouray with its breathtaking waterfalls, history filled hotels and revitalizing natural hot springs all just a short drive from our condo home.
Casa Gioia Di Vivere is surrounded by tranquil natural beauty just a little over a mile north of Durango Mountain Ski resort (free shuttle service to the resort) with views off both balconies of Needles mountain and backed by deep green forest and hiking trails where you can wander through the wilderness all the way to Denver. Just a 25 mile ride south takes you into Durango or 42 miles to the airport. The location is somewhat remote so a car is required.

John and Jessica's fell I love with the Durango mountains and San Juan wilderness more than a decade ago. We have taken our many years of experience renting the vacation home of others to create an environment around what we have always found most important in our travels in the US and abroad .... an inviting comfortable home like atmosphere with everything needed to cook a wonderful meal, engage with friends and family all the while have nature right outside the door for adventure and creating memories. We look forward to sharing our special Mountain Home with you ! Our Life Motto is to embrace "THE JOY OF LIVING" and our favorite country other than our own is Italy .. so we named our vacation home "GIOIA DE VIVERE" . We hope you love it as much as we do!
