Our home

The house dates back to 1905 and was fully restored in 2005. It is located in Valsesia (a well known valley NW of Milan, leading to the south side of Monte Rosa, the second highest peak of the Alpes - 4580 mt), on a hill between the wood (on the back) and the river (in front). There is a big garden with barbecue, gazebo and a small children playground, overlooking the mountains and the river. Living room and kitchen/dining room in the ground floor, 1st and 2nd foor with 2 bedrooms each, and an indipendent 60 sq. mt. apartment in the 3rd floor. 3 bathrooms and a parking 50 mt. away. Our home is comfortable, relaxing and perfect for 2 families with children.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Varallo Sesia, the main town of the valley, is only 1 km away and can be reached on foot. Varallo is a fascinating, old town famous for its sanctuary, known as "Sacro Monte"; it is good for shopping and plenty of life, especially in summertime. Alagna Valsesia, the main turistic destination of the valley (skiing, cableway up to 3.000 mt) at the foot of Monte Rosa, is 30 km far. Lago d'Orta and lago Maggiore are east of Varallo, 30-40 minutes drive. There is an important SPA near the house, a delicatessen shop and a good restaurant 300 mt. fareway, and a farmhouse just in front, where fresh cheese, eggs, milk etc. can be purchased. One can swim in a large pool of the river just in front of the house, and experience all river sports such as kayaking, rafting, hydrospeed etc (the river Sesia is well known for that!)
