We discovered this alpine gem through Leonardo, an Italian film location scout. He wrote “I have found a mountain paradise for you. High above the old village. Amazing view. Tranquil setting. Superb restaurant.”. He was right. The staff was friendly and expert, all led by the warm and capable owners Maria-Giovanna and Marco. This albergo (inn) was recently restored, but has kept its old-world charm. The fine bed linens were crisp and ironed, the new bathrooms spotless. Different oriental rugs in each bed room.
The dining room overlooks a splendid vista down the valley. A friendly bar on one end, the capacious kitchen on the other. The chefs wear white hats and take their cooking seriously. I had local prosciutto and fresh mozzarella buffa for a starter, and then a hearth-roasted selection of tender local lamb and pork tenderloin. The wine selection was carefully chosen by Marco from the nearby Trentino area. The apple strudel was delicately flavored, not to mention an array of homemade fruit tarts. We finished with an expresso and a local grappa.
No need for a bus from the village, we skied directly to the private ski storage room, and even had lunch here daily, the food was so fine. Looking forward to coming back for hiking in the summer.More
