The space

This small stone house, built in the last century by mountaineers who inhabit this valley and then restructured to make it comfortable and pleasant, is located in a small mountain village inhabited by some families and many cows.
On the ground floor is the living area with kitchenette, and a corner dedicated to relax. Behind the kitchenette bathroom with shower and washing machine. On the first floor, which is accessed by an internal staircase, two bedrooms under the sloping roof with exposed beams.
The village is quiet, sometimes too .. :))
This then is the ideal place for a relaxing holiday in contact with nature but also with the Aosta Valley cuisine that, especially in winter, can cuddle you with the warm and soft flavors of the polenta concia (polenta with fontina cheese), Valpellinense soup with onions, fontina cheese and bread, Fontina, all washed down by fine wines from Valle d'Aosta like the "fumino, the Chambave Muscat, the petit Arvine and, finally, the Grolla dell'Amicizia, the Friendship Cup, a wooden container with 'drinking holes', to drink the typical Valdostana coffee mixed with grappa, sugar and spices.
All this after a good skiing in winter, at the near Col de Joux, Torgnon or Cervinia skying resorts.

Some distances: Colle di Joux 9 km,Champoluc in Val d'Ayas 25 km, Antagnod 24 km, Torgnon 23 km, Cervinia 36 km, Pila 53 km and the nice but unknown Chamois 17 km, on the way to Cervinia.

You definitely need your own (or rented) to drive around as no public transportation is available.

A mobile phone with Wind operator is at your disposal for emergency but you can use it as much as you want provided you recharge the credit before leaving. Thank you!

PS: necessary stuff like sheets, towels, shower soap, shampoo, toilet paper are provided.
The kitchen is fully equipped for you to prepare your favorite meals!

We had a great time staying in at Fulvia & Ale's place in Grun. The house is lovely and is in a great setting. The house was clean and well presented. We were there in mid-winter in the biomass heating system was great and kept us perfectly warm. Highly recommended.

Great, cosy and charming place - both the house and the village. Romantic, quiet, clean and exactly as it is described and seen on the pictures. Close to the great mountain resort. Fulvia is a wonderful host, very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Thank you!!!

We felt welcome and liked the peaceful setting. The accommodation is very clean and orderly. The stove is powered by a propane tank, which unfortunately was empty when we arrived, so we had to rely on the microwave to heat our coffee in the morning. The bedroom is large, but t…

Nice house in a small village on the hills. Total privacy, nice interior, however a little bit dark as the house is inside the small village. 10 min drive up the mpuntain from the town / valley to the house. Although the house has only a very small balcony and no garden, there ar…
