We had a great time in Appartamento Pelvo. The apartment had spectacular views over the valley and we spent most evenings on the balcony watching the sunset light up Monte Chersogno in the far distance except for the evening when everything was unexpectedly shrouded in a thick mist. The apartment is very comfortable and tastefully decorated in a modern style that suites the building perfectly. The kitchen has everything you need including a dishwasher, Dario and his wife were wonderfully thoughtful to provide a few essentials and bottle of wine from the region. The small town of Serre we drove though to get to Appartamento Pelvo has one of the treasures of the Elva province, the Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta with it’s beautiful murals by Hans Clemer, there is also a small grocery and cheese shop you pass where we got nearly all our groceries, it has lots of local and organic products, ask for the local cheese. One of the great aspects of the apartment is that is is directly on some of the the best walking trails of the Valle Maria, from the house, you can do an easy four hour loop of the valley. This was our first visit to the Valle Maira and it was one of the most beautiful and fantastic places in Italy we have visited. Dario and his wife were great hosts with a wonderful apartment, we would love to return.
Alpes d'OC Morinesio is an absolutely amazing gem hidden deep in Valle Maira. My husband and I booked 5 nights after viewing photos on Top Rural and we could have easily spent the entirety of our holiday in Morinesio! Driving up Valle Maira we were stunned by the views and the dramatic scenery, only to arrive at Alpes d'OC Morinesio to be treated immediately like family - Paolo, Consolata, Cinzia and Gino greeted us warmly even as they catered to a room full of happy dinner guests! We spent six full days trekking in the Maritime Alps, following an itinerary outlined by Paolo who grew up setting randonnee ski trails in the valley - the sights and heights were incredible... We are both strong hikers and Paolo was able to recommend perfect trails. Each morning we woke to a view of the small church above the valley, bathed pink and gold in the sunrise; each night we returned tired and happy to delicious meals prepared with such love by Cinzia and Gino. While the photographs on this website may depict the beautiful scenery and accommodations, they cannot capture the special community fostered by Alpes d'OC Morinesio - even as guests come and go, each night over dinner new friendships are made just as stories are shared. Anyone looking for beautiful mountains, lakes and rivers, crisp clean air, unforgettable walks, and both solitude and friendship will do well to stay at Alpes d'OC Morinesio! We will absolutely be back and look forward to more adventures and new friends ahead.
