About the property

Three kilometres from Cogne, in the vicinity of the beautiful pastures of the small village of Epinel, the wood and stone house stands immersed in the wonderful scenery of the snow-capped peaks of the Gran Paradiso.

Basking in the sun all day long thanks to its fortunate position, the cottage towers over the Cogne valley and stream. Surrounded by its own lawn which affords remarkable views in all directions, the house is a good starting point for many walks and excursions to the National Park of Gran Paradiso, famous for the beauty and wealth and of its mountain habitat and fauna. Excursions on horseback through pastures and ravines, with pleasant stops at mountain huts for a plate of polenta (the celebrated north-Italian corn-meal speciality) are also possible.

In the winter, on the other hand, you can leave the house, skis directly under your feet, and reach the 80 kilometres of cross-country ski tracks for which this valley has attained world-wide fame. Slopes for downhill skiing, ski lifts and a skiing area specially for children are also available nearby. Further afield, children and grown-ups alike can rejoice in the vast enchanting panorama of the Pratone di Sant’Orso recreational park. Finally, the beautiful slopes of Pila are within easy reach of the house.

...per una vacanza rigenerante!

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo affittato l'intero chalet per la settimana di Capodanno, la casa è deliziosa e molto ben attrezzata. Panorama splendido. Comoda per gli spostamenti, a 5 minuti di macchina da Cogne. Comodissimo per i bambini, subito fuori c'è una discesa per gli slittini e pista da fondo. In casa inoltre giochi e libri delle fiabe.

Unica nota negativa....bisognerebbe dare una rinfrescata a piumoni e cuscini.

Nel complesso, da ritornare sicuramente!!

Car: necessary

You can reach our village by car via the Torino-Aosta motorway (A5), exit Aosta Ovest. Then continue on the regional road to Cogne for 25 kilometres to Epinel.

The area is rich in restaurants offering delicious regional cuisine. It is possible to rent skis and bicycles. The excursions to countless Alpine lakes (Loie, Lauson) and to the Alpeggio dell’Arolla, where steinbocks, chamois and imperial eagles are frequently to be encountered, are unmissable. And don’t forget to take in a visit to the astounding high mountain landscape of the Paradisia Alpine garden at Valnontey!
