What about sleeping in a trullo?
In summer: fresh and dry, Trullo interior maintains a pleasant temperature thanks to the thick stone walls which can reach from 50 centimeter to 2 meters wide. The wall’s thermal inertia helps to maintain an indoor temperature much lower than the outdoor temperature even in the hot summer days.
In winter: Trulli have the ability to retain heat in all environments thanks to the thickness of the walls.
