It is a valley of great beauty that combines ancient traditions and nature characterized by green meadows and dense forests. This valley is also known for its mycological and birdlife values.

We love to work and live in nature. Although we have our feet on the ground, we also like to climb trees. In 2003 we created a pioneering company in construction of adventure parks on trees. Since then we have built several adventure parks as well as natural wooden paths on trees. Soon the idea of going further came up and we asked ourselves for the possibility of sleeping on top of a tree. How would be the experience of being completely immersed in the woods? Thus Basoa Suites began to take shape.
At Basoa Suites we believe in a different kind of tourism and thus promote sustainable and respectful tourism.
Our suites have a dry toilet system to avoid the installation of pipes and drains into the forest. We have also built elevated wooden walkways to prevent soil compaction, direct the traffic of people to the paths and ensure that the soil and plants do not suffer the impact of our presence. Finally, we promote the observation of forest under the belief that the more we know about the forests better we take care of them.
