Description

Why not stay in an authentic alpine village this year, rather than a purpose built resort? This property is part of a medieval village on the Swiss-Italian border, where guests ski in St Moritz and Madesimo, but also enjoy great Italian food, and spectacular walks

The area has some of the most dramatic granite mountains in the Alps. From the restaurant of nearby Palazzo Salis in Soglio you can see the north face of Pizzo Cengalo (a sheer granite wall over a kilometer high), the famous Piz Badile (where mountaineering legend Cassin pioneered routes) and the spires of the Sciora peaks

Good eating - there are an abundance of fine restaurants, mountain refuges and ‘crotti’ (the famous cave restaurants of the area). We are self-catering, but if you want food, we serve real Italian home cooking for an additional £540/week (Mari is a great cook and speaks good English)

The chalet has been completely restored this year, but reflects the original style of the 300 year old house. You’ll find three foot thick stone walls and a granite staircase, cupboards tucked into niches in the wall with old doors and giant iron keys… The house is good for families with a washing machine and dishwasher, a cot, a high chair, games and puzzles, and a CD player

We meet standards in responsible tourism with heating and electricity provided by recycled paper and hydroelectricity! We donate 5% of our income to Orobie National Park - one of four nature reserves covering 2000Km2 of mountains in our area

Chalet Layout (room numbers shown in brackets):

Ground floor

Large twin room, which can be converted into a double (1), small bunk bedroom (2), bathroom, additional wc

NB This is a real mountain village and you can only reach the house on foot. The house is 150m from the road down s teps and guests will need to change out of their ski boots before walking to the house.

Winter activities and skiing

  • Lunch in Soglio (CH) and a walk up the dizzy granite peaks in Val Bondasca
