About the property


The house is in the village called Venoz ( which is part of the town of NUS) at 1800 mt of altitude. The village consists of about 20 houses from the XVIII century carefully restaured with typical materials from the valley . Our home was built in 1993, according to the tradition and with local materials.

The closest village with facilities is NUS, 16 km from Venoz and 11 Km from the city of Aosta, which is the main town of the valley, with 50.000 inhabitants. In Aosta you can find all you need: train station, buses that connect the main town with the valleys around it, shopping center, a nice pedestrian area with shops, bars, restaurants and historical monuments, dating back to the Roman Age.

In the village of Venoz there aren’t shops, but in Lignan, the village 1 km below Venoz, where there is the observatory, there is a restaurant, family run, and a tiny shop where you can find food (essential). Nus, 16 Km from Venoz, has food stores, baker’s, pharmacy, post office, bank, and so on…

We strongly recommend you to get all your grocery and food supply in Nus!

The most convenient airports are in Milano Malpensa and Turin. From the airport you can rent a car. The valley of Saint Bartlemy is situated in the centre of Valle d’Aosta and it is easy to reach the Monte Bianco, Monte Rosa, Gran Paradiso, Cervino. From our home you are close to many trails to walk up to 2600 mt, where there is the oratory of Cuney.

This is the house we use for our leisure time, so it has our books, objects and so on and has all facilities like washing machine, oven, dishwasher, gpl heating system (NOT centralized), color tv, HiFi, furniture, rugs, sheets, blankets, towels etc.

The apartment : on the ground floor there is a large kitchen and sitting room, a bathroom with shower and two bedrooms with single beds. Upstairs there is an attic room where there is a double bed (french size _ 140 cm). In one of the two bedrooms there will be stored our personal items. There is a balcony facing south with a beautiful view of the Mount Emilius. We will give you a closet and a dresser for your use. The place is very quiet, it helps relaxing and meditation.

If you want to forget a busy city world, enjoy purity of nature and experience a real Alpine atmosphere you MUST stay in the house.

The house is a harmonic addition to the beautiful nature. It has everything you need and you feel a love in each thing you see in there.

This is our second stay and we are already dreaming again to come back.

Guglielmo and Grazia - owners of the house - will give you a great hospitality and help you if anything is needed.

After an active day (you can find great cross country ski paths just 5 min drive from the house) we enjoyed reading books sitting close to a fire place or watching the mountains and stars out of a window.

We are so thankful to Guglielmo and Grazia for the unforgettable stay which gives us the energy for the year.

Owner's Response: I thank Evgenia and Andry for this nice review. Me and Grazia want to say that they are "unforgettable" guests. The first time they came their son was 3 years old. It was good to see him too, who grew up so much. They are guests you always want at home. Everything was fine, in order. The owners who host this young family will be happy. See you soon Guglielmo e Grazia

Una estancia inolvidable!

  • 5 of 5

Hemos pasado una semana fabulosa en esta casa preciosa. Todo estaba en perfecto estado, limpio, no faltaba nada y dispuesto de forma que uno podía sentirse a gusto en cada momento. La vista desde el balcón con el panorama de los Álpes absolutamente fenomenal. Muchísmas posibilidades de hacer excursiones y senderos. Y Guglielmo con su simpatía habitual siempre preocupado para que nos faltara de nada. Muchísimas gracias. Muy recomendable. Repetiremos seguro!

petit coin du paradis

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons eu une semaine relaxante a Venoz.

Appartement tres bien equipe, tres comfortable et chaleureux. La vue du balcon est ravissante. Le decor change avec le temps! Dommage que nous avons decouvert ce paradis a notre age...... c'est un petit paradis pour revenir plusieurs vacances et jouir du silence, le repos, la nature, les vues de la montagne....

Capodanno in totale relax!!!

  • 5 of 5

Venoz è un luogo eccezionale per chi vuole passare una vacanza di relax immersi nella natura..l'appartamento è perfetto sia per una famiglia che per un gruppo di amici..attrezzatissimo, soprattutto la stufa a pellets è comoda e scalda in abbondanza e la balconata con vista panoramica sulla valle non ha prezzo!!

Guglielmo è una persona molto disponibile ed ha arredato la casa con qualsiasi cosa possa servire per passare al meglio la vacanza..

Assolutamente consigliato!!!

Owner's Response: Matteo e i suoi amici sono stati ospiti graditissimi. Quando ricevo prenotazioni per il periodo di capodanno sono sempre un po' sospettoso perché a volte sono ospiti che cercano una qualsiasi casa per fare festa e a volte sono un po' poco attenti alla casa. Io sono stato proprio fortunato perché ho trovato persone che condividono gli stessi gusti. Matteo è stato anche con i suoi due figli e questo per me era importante perché speravo che anche loro ricordassero questi momenti con il papà. Mi è sembrato che anche loro fossero contenti. Hanno portato una cagnolina e quando ho preso la prenotazione ero un po' preoccupato. Nessun problema hanno avuto tantissima cura e la casa mi è stata consegnata pulita e in ordine. Grazie e spero di avervi ancora miei ospiti Guglielmo

Car: necessary

take the autoroute Torino-Aosta and exit at Nus. Cross the village and when you reach the crossroad where there is the pharmacy, turn right and follow the road to Lignan, Osservatorio astronomico (observatory). When you arrive in Lignan, find the square next to the church. From that area, the road keeps on going up to a couple of smaller villages. The second one is Venoz.

Here you can ski cross country, have long excursions, walk, or ride your mountainbike.
