A cozy and warm wooden oasis in the heart of the Alps
We were greeted and welcomed by the landlord who made us feel at home straight away. The house on two floors is incredibly charming and warm entirely fitted with hand carved wood yet modern and functional in all services.
I definitely recommend it!
Great mountain village stay
Everything was absolutely great. Surroundings are beautiful-plenty of treks: easy and more strenghous. Few restaurants in the village. Very nice private garden near the house. The owner is extremelly helpful and kind-he arranged everything for our little daughter and baked us fresh bread every morning!
Really enjoyed the stay!
Lovingly crafted spacious B&B in a historic home, in a tiny village perched on a mountainside
Your host Massimiliano is a wood carver who has carefully restored his ancestral home with careful detail. The main floor is divided into a large well-equipped eat in kitchen, a large dining room, and a bathroom with laundry. Upstairs there are two suites that close off for privacy, each with two bedrooms and a full bathroom. There is a small balcony with a beautiful view, as well as a small garden with an outdoor table. All the furniture is wood carved and the decoration has a welcoming Aosta Alpine feel. Massimiliano provides a sumptuous breakfast of highest quality local foods, with yogurts, focaccia, a fruit tart, breads and many jams. The Champorcher Valley was absolutely stunning. Massimiliano took us out for a two hour introductory hike the afternoon of our arrival, during which we learned about the local history and geography. He suggested two magnificent and very different day long hikes for the next two days. It surprised us how few people were on these beautiful trails, mostly Italian hikers, a few French. On the first hike we climbed through a pass and saw the Italian side of the Matterhorn, and a series of beautiful Alpine Lakes, passing by two Refugios. On the next day's hike the high meadows put us in a Sound of Music mood, and the return was through a spectacular canyon. Massimiliano is a gracious, attentive and very available host, proud of his home and heritage, who patiently answered our many questions and made our stay very comfortable. We would all gladly return for more exploration of the Champorcher Valley.
A wonderful vacation rental
I highly recommend this rental. The house is beautiful, well kept, and very roomy. It was stocked with all the things you could possibly need on a vacation (dishes, linens, laundry facilities, basic food) and truly felt like a home away from home. The owner was very attentive to our needs. He not only made breakfast for us every morning, he also advised us on which hikes to take, helped us meet a local artist who's work we expressed interest in, and answered all the questions we had about the area (restaurants, shopping, walking trails). I would stay here again and would recommend this rental to family and friends.
excellent, very nice and so warm stay
Thank you so much for this excellent, so beautiful and so nice and so warm stay in the so nice Maison de Grand Maman. Mr Massimiliano is a so kind and helpful person, we will come back anyway.
Excellent accueil, chalet de charme de qualité
Un bien spacieux, fonctionnel, restauré avec goût dans l'esprit traditionnel montagnard, très belle qualité de réalisation, literie excellente, belles salles de bain, situation idéale pour les départs de randonnée.
Un hôte chaleureux et discret, qui transmet avec passion son amour pour la région, paysage, faune, flore, produits du terroir.
I plan theme-based walking tours from May to October. In May I could go with you for short hiking where you can discover nice hamlets, recognise the lawn grasses and the edible flowers. It is also possible to taste them for dinner.
Juny, July and August are the most beautiful months to unearth the uncommon flowers of the Alleigne valley and the Miserin lake. We could also make photo trekking watching the female chamoises that play with their puppies along the
snowfields or the nimble steinbocks along the face of the Dela mountain.
You can also climb into the Glacier mountain to admire the whole landscape of Aosta Valley, discover the innumerable lakes of the Mont Avic Parl called the "little" Canada.
