We love to travel and it was during one of our trips we came up with the idea to open our home to those who, like us, love to discover different places, meet people and have new experiences.
We offer our guests the same warm welcome and given that we love to provide our friends.
You are free to manage your time as best believe it, but you can still count on us to make the best use of resources, routes and beauty of our valley.
Toules is a place of passage. Long ago the farmers were going to Toules in spring and autumn according to the rhythms of vertical transhumance typical of Valle d'Aosta : in the stables in winter and in summer at low altitudes in mountain pastures. Today it is still the case.
For more than a century, the Maison de Thoules was used as a barn and stable. Two modest rooms were used as dormitory and kitchen.
Then for a long period, the house was uninhabited.
Since 2000, Mario and Elvira, the parents of Paola, with perseverance and dedication have been working to revive the home. Without haste, and with the support of the whole family, the house has taken shape. In 2006 it was opened to accommodate those who want to stay there.
The hut is now composed of three rooms, a tavern and a wine cellar. Two apartments are available to guests.
A house lives if is inhabited : we strive to care for and beautify it in every season. It's our place of rest and recreation. We hope that it is also for you.
The accommodation has been refurbished in the Aosta Valley style. We kept the stone, we have recovered items of daily use, such as the manger, the cross of wood, old wood, the cast iron stove, mixing them with modern elements. The house is so cozy and functional.
Joli chalet agréable dans endroit très tranquille mais je voudrais signaler à la propriétaire qu'il manquait un peu d'ustensiles de cuisine (casseroles, grille pain, percolateur, four (seulement un micro ondes).
Siamo stati alla Maison de Thoules 4 volte negli ultimi 3 anni e sicuramente ci torneremo ancora. Siamo stati conquistati dalla casa, dal posto e dall'accoglienza dei proprietari. Davvero un posto da sogno!
Baita molto bella e ben tenuta. I proprietari molto gentili. Comoda per escursioni o per andare a sciare. Molto consigliata è sicuramente ci tornerò.
Siamo tornati con piacere alla Maison dopo avervi soggiornato per una settimana questa estate. La casa è molto bella e i proprietari gentili e sempre disponibili. Penso che torneremo ancora tanti altri weekend !!
In Valpelline abbiamo trovato un piccolo angolo di paradiso. Natura incontaminata, splendide passeggiate, un piccolo villaggio che sembra uscito da un libro di fiabe e un'accoglienza meravigliosa. L'appartamento è perfetto. Caldo, accogliente, scrupolosamente pulito e ordinato, arredato con gusto fin nei più piccoli particolari e dotato di tutto il necessario per rendere confortevole il soggiorno. Paola e Giuliano sono di una gentilezza squisita. Abbiamo trascorso tre settimane incantevoli e incredibilmente rilassanti. Non vediamo l'ora di tornare.
The Valpelline is the paradise for ski-touring, but just a few minutes from the house there are three ski areas: ease of paths make it ideal for those who want to start any kind of skiing. For downhill skiing, in twenty minutes you can reach Crevacol, ideal for families, and the cable-car that from Aosta reaches Pila. A small ski lift, with attached snow park for children, is located in Ollomont.
The cross-country trails are found in the nearby towns of Bionaz and Ollomont. In Valpelline is also possible to practice heliskiing. The Valpelline, finally, offers a number of itineraries with snowshoes
In summer pleasant trips await the lovers of hiking and mountain biking. The different huts and bivouacs of the Grand Combin can accommodate hikers or even those who just want to have lunch in the mountains. Who climbs have available the inside wall of Ollomont, and outdoor walls in Gignod and Bionaz, as well as the most challenging routes multitiro dell'Aroletta above the shelter of Crete Hair.
