About Paola Tancredi
We are the couple who will host you during your stay at the Maison de Thoules. Paola is a professor of literature and a violinist. Giuliano is an engineer and deals with the ski resorts in the region. We also have a beautiful daughter named Cecilia.
Paola Tancredi purchased this Chalet in 2001
Why Paola Tancredi chose Valpelline
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.
What makes this Chalet unique
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.

très belles vacances en montagne Valdotaine
Nous rentrons de Valpelline, nous avons passé 15 jours formidables, à vagabonder sur les sentiers de randonnée. Nos yeux n'étaient pas assez grands pour tout imprimer ... Que la montagne est belle!!
Notre logement était vraiment confortable, et très soigné, on se sent chaleureusement accueilli .
Quel calme!!! Cette petite maison est situé dans un hameau, juste quelques habitations , où Dik , le chien du voisin Léo, fait sonner sa clochette en se promenant.
Un bonheur de profiter du jardin, d'y mettre la main à la pâte .... Merci Paola, merci papa de Paola, tous nos vœux pour votre famille. Colette et Michiel
Séjour à Valpelline (maison de Thoules)
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).
Grazie per la segnalazione, provvederemo ad aggiungere ciò che avete indicato.
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!
Carissimi, grazie infinite per le vostre belle parole. Per noi è stato un piacere ospitarvi ogni volta che siete venuti a trovarci e speriamo davvero di potervi accogliere ancora in futuro. Vi salutiamo con affetto e vi aspettiamo a Thoules! A presto
Baita molto bella e ben tenuta. I proprietari molto gentili. Comoda per escursioni o per andare a sciare. Molto consigliata è sicuramente ci tornerò.
