Pleasant and hot in the summer while great for all kinds of winter sports with long periods of snow. The Chiavenna area: Chiavenna is located 500 metres above sea level, near the famous ski resorts of Madesimo (15 km) and St. Moritz (35 km). The town is surrounded by the spectacular granite spires and rock faces of Pizzo Cengalo and Badile which offer a wide variety of climbing and trekking possibilities. The house overlooks the Bodengo valley, famous for its rafting and canoeing. Nearby lake Como and lake Engadine allow for every kind of water sport. Chiavenna is also a historical town with churches and palaces worth visiting. Near Chiavenna lie the ruins of Piuro, an important village destroyed by a landslide in the XVII century, which killed over 1.000 people. Typical restaurants are the "Crotti", located in granite caves where the taste of the typical wines and "bresaola" of the region are perfectly preserved. Venice is 300 km away, Milan 140 km and Florence 400 km.

About Lucio Dal Buono

I am an old electronic engineer, now retired. My hobbies were scuba diving, climbing, sailing. Now I write books and essays and sometimes I fligh on my motorized flexwing microlight. And, of course, I have fun in welcoming you in my mountain chalet together with my wife Rita, who gave the name to the chalet itself.

Lucio Dal Buono purchased this Chalet in 1997

Why Lucio Dal Buono chose Prata Camportaccio

It was an old cattle shed with a hayloft above. It was nearby the old monastry of S.Cristoforo, where the old road of Spluga passed. I rebuilt it completely in 10 years from 1997 to 2007. I liked the place immediately: sorrounded by mountains and forest, but still confortably near to the town. In 10 minutes I can get to the train and go to Milan. Or walk to Chiavenna.

What makes this Chalet unique

Quite and confortable mountain chalet, close but to the town and with a lot of sport and cultural possibilities

                                                                  sandra H.

                                                                  Beautiful area surrounded with the forest in the mountains. This property sleeps 6 to 8 people. In my opinion six people is enough as the kitchen is very small and the dining table seats six people comfortably. It was good value for the price. Very clean and we were met by the owners who were very friendly. This particular chalet I feel would not be suitable for elderly people or familys with very young children as the stairs are very steep. The surrounding views and the old worldly town was just beautiful. We were a family of eight and stopped for one week. Ideal area for people who love walking and close enough to the skiing in the winter times. We would definitely use this property for future holidays but with less people. Lake Como which was only a 20 minute drive away was stunning ideal for people who like fishing. Dog friendly.
