Nice room, beautiful surroundings, great walks, and the tastiest food! What more could you want? Thanks to the two great hosts, I hope I'll be back.
That was the most important stuff, but I have 200 words to fill. We drove up from Turin airport which was quick and easy, although the last bit is a narrow mountain road. Lacking a car would be more difficult, but should be no obstacle to staying here! Welcomed with a glass of iced tea, we were then recommended a place to lunch by the owners (Osteria Setteponti), from where we walked down to the river and had a paddle in the mountain water. The next day we went on one of the walks that leave right from the hotel door up to the Cucetto peak, which was an enjoyable baptism to the area. Our final day was spent walking around the “13 Laghi”, a collection of lakes which we reached by chairlift from Prali. This was unforgettable, not least because of the sunburn!
Twice we ate with the hosts, and each time they laid on course upon course of delightful food. Our fellow guests were a pleasure to dine with also.
