Overview

About the property

70 sqm - with spacious living room with kitchenette, one bedroom, two bathrooms

Our family home is a rural building from the 1800s that a careful renovation has transformed into a home comfortable and functional with all the modern comforts while retaining the original architectural features. wooden beams, walls with wood paneling, custom-made furniture in alpine style made by the owner, add warmth and charm to this house situated in the typical village of Buic at the foot of the forest: a 'handful' of houses leaning against each other around the chapel dedicated to Saint Lucia, whose facade is adorned by the painting of Saint Défendent in warrior clothes. Buic The name comes from the ancient Latin 'Boscum'.

At 200 meters from the house a convenient public parking accommodates cars and a lovely garden welcomes children.

Guests have a small library and backpacks for hiking.

The La Thuile center with its shops, the bank, the pharmacy, the Tourist Office, the Library with Internet-WIFI-Post, is a 2-minute drive.

At 10 km there are the famous Baths of Pre'-Saint-Didier. The city of Aosta is 45 Km. You can make a trip to France to SEEZ from Little St Bernard Pass, or through the Mont Blanc tunnel to reach Chamonix.

The welcome is supervised by the owners. The son of the owners -guide Alpina- on request, also run trips to the discovery of our mountains. Do not hesitate to contact us for more details.

Car: necessary

A5 towards Mont Blanc output MORGEX. Then SS 26 of the Valle d'Aosta, after 5 Km. You get to an intersection, take the left fork to Pre'-SAINT-DIDIER and continue to LA THUILE

(If you are interested at the Spa, embarked on the fork, on your left you will see the school building: one side of the building leads to the public swimming pool, while the other side is going to the Baths). Once in LA THUILE go about BUIC.

Some indications greedy for purchases km. zero: left the motorway to your right near the level crossing you will see a beautiful stone building is the headquarters of the Cave du VIN BLANC where, from the highest vineyards in Europe, was born the 'WHITE WINE of MORGEX AND LA SALLE '.

Continuing about 4 km from here, to vs. right you will see a small square with a CHALET (and a BAR) is the headquarters of the Cooperative Producers of Fontina, typical cheese in the Aosta Valley.

Other indications 'in passing' (for any subsequent trips): escapes from the front you will find a large roundabout, you must go on, but going around and following the sign ARPY, you get to La Thuile from Colle San Carlo.(But it 's better to do it from La Thuile Morgex)

And yet, for lovers of strong emotions, I report the Adventure Park. It is accessed by climbing in La Thuile: immediately after the first tunnel you will see a road sign that says 137 SS 26, and then a bend to the right one just wide stretch before taking the second gallery, this widening of the road to the park.

La Thuile in winter paradise for fans of skiing / snowboarding / free ride skiing / ski with 160 km of ski slopes and 50 km of cross-country trails in the summer attracts mountain lovers and outdoors: an extensive network of marked trails of varying difficulty and length, will introduce you to the surrounding mountains and you can not leave without having been at least once to Rifugio Deffeyes, at the foot of the Ruitor glacier to admire the beautiful glacial lakes, as well as the majestic waterfalls . The mountain bikers will range between Italy and France on a network of 220 km. of tracks, but do not miss the opportunity of being able to challenge themselves even in white water rafting, horseback riding, tennis, climbing, etc.

If sport is not your forte, you can cool just enjoying the fresh air of calm and tranquility of the sun, leaving the hectic pace of everyday life.

Our favorites:

Restaurant Pizzeria THE EDGES - near the center;

Restaurant LO RIONDET - on the way to the Little St. Bernard;

Restaurant LE THOVEX - 400 meters.

Una casa per le vacanze a regola d'arte

  • 5 of 5

Innanzitutto voglio dire che Odette è una persona vera, presente, pulita, accogliente, precisa e che ti fa sentire coccolato. Lei adora questa sua casa e lo si nota da come cura ogni dettaglio. Siamo stati veramente contenti di aver avuto un trattamento del genere. Il dossier con spunti per escursioni o visite di vari luoghi è la chicca che ci vorrebbe sempre in ogni posto di vacanza ..... È una sorta di "istruzioni per come usare al meglio il tuo tempo di permanenza". Siamo rimasti entusiasti da questa sistemazione. Complimenti !!!

Casa molto ben tenuta ed accogliente. ci è piaciut

  • 4 of 5

La casa ci è sembrata veramente comoda. C'é veramente tutto quello che serve e anche di più!

Buic (la frazione dove si trova la casa) è una frazione deliziosa di La Thuile, molto tranquilla. L'accoglienza della sig.ra Odette perfetta, come ci conoscesse da anni. E' molto probabile un nostro ritorno anche perché il posto offre tanto da fare e 12 giorni non sono stati sufficienti.

Accoglienza cordialissima, appartamento gioiello!

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo soggiornato nella settimana di Ferragosto in questo magnifico e pulitissimo appartamento su tre livelli, in un borgo antico sapientemente ristrutturato. La zona è tranquillissima e molto comoda per raggiungere il centro di La Thuile. L'arredamento è in legno, in stile tipicamente valdostano, accogliente e dotato di tutto: le stoviglie e le pentole sono nuove e molto abbondanti, ci sono il forno a microoonde e la lavastoviglie. Al piano di sotto c'è anche una lavanderia comune ai tre appartamenti della casa, in cui si possono usare liberamente la lavatrice e l'asciugatrice. Negli armadi, la capienza è veramente tanta, non ci era mai capitata una cosa del genere! I nostri bambini si sono potuti divertire con i giochi di società a disposizione degli ospiti e a noi grandi la Signora Odette ha fornito preziosissimi consigli e tantissime libri e guide turistiche per organizzare al meglio la nostra vacanza! Ci siamo sentiti davvero accolti con calore da Odette, che ha avuto moltissima attenzione nei nostri confronti! Grazie davvero! Consigliatissimo.

una casa tipica in un borgo di montagna

  • 5 of 5

io e mia moglie abbiamo passato una bellissima settimana in questa frazione di la thuile e devo dire che la casa rispetta in toto le caratteristiche dell'annuncio :spaziosa , pulita , accessoriata di tutto e molto tranquilla con in più le attenzioni e i suggerimenti innumerevoli della sig.ra Odette , la proprietaria , per ottimizzare al meglio la ns. vacanza e la conoscenza delle bellezze che la zona offriva. E allora : la battaglia dele regine ( mucche ) e il giardino alpino Chanousia al piccolo s.bernardo , la skyway del monte bianco , le cascate del rutor ,percorso non così agevole ma che meritava fare per la bellezza delle medesime ,la val Ferret , la val Veny e la valle di Rhemes che veramente hanno soddisfatto la curiosità e la voglia di conoscere mia e di mia moglie.Insomma una vacanza " piena " che ci ha pienamente soddisfatti e che è stata baciata sempre dal sole dopo un arrivo piovoso . Punteggio alto per tutto
