Albergo Diffuso

The locanda - Albergo diffuso 3 stars

Associazione alberghi diffusi internazionale ( proud to be in the Touring Club guide as hotel and albergo diffuso since 2011. A home with hotel services, a traditional family welcome awaits you thanks to our Beppe, who is Angel for Travellers, ready to explain the concept of albergo diffuso and its philosophy. Even the National Geographic wrote an article about us and the Gardetta plateau.

Little by little the locanda has grown into 6 rooms, an apartment and a junior suite where you can spend quiet regenerating weeks, a weekend or just a few magical moments on our sunbathed terrace. Some rooms have large balcony or private terrace, and a small standard room has a garden with a 300° view over the surrounding mountains and village. Relaxing corners for reading or taking a nap… either shade or sunshine… to regenerate body and soul. Our houses are the result of a careful renovation, that gives authentic life to local architecture, with multi-family houses, stone roofs and walls, traditional mountain furniture. Pleasure for detail, comfort for your stay. All rooms and apartments have a private bathroom, mostly en-suite, a safe and a courtesy corner with water heater, tea and coffee. Most rooms have a minibar. We do not have any television sets. Wi-Fi is now free in most rooms and of course in common areas. Warning: only Vodafone mobile phones work well. However Wi-Fi is free for everyone and at a small extra charge for posto tappa travellers.

A rich continental buffet. Savoury or sweet, is served in the bar area or in the terrace and is included in most prices. Cereals, eggs, cheese, cakes, yoghurt, fruit and more to start your day in a healthy way. Bread, jam and marmalade are home made. Honey is local, too. Our bar is open all day till 11 pm in the summer, till dinner time in winter. Our Piedmontese tapas and boards are served from 12.30 till 6 pm and pasta dishes and salads from 1 to 3 pm.
