Why are no flying, burning lanterns permitted?
A sky lantern, also known as Kǒngmíng lantern, or Chinese lantern, is a small hot air balloon made of paper, with an opening at the bottom where a small fire is suspended. Alma Vii has lots of barns full of dry materials. We already experienced a big, destructive fire in the past and the village doesn’t allow the use of flying lanterns.
Is Alma-Via Guesthouse open during wintertime?
Yes, with a few exceptions we are open all year round. The rooms are nice and cozy in the wintertime as well. You should however inquire about possible temperature-related changes in the operation of the Restaurant Barn during the cold season. It might not be feasible to heat the barn if there are not enough guests using it.
