The space

The Accommodation
It’s an old renovated mountain hut, accessible only on foot, spectacular views, a source of pure water, space for cooking and eating outdoors. It’s like traveling back in time. One double bed plus a single one is the standard, but we can add two more beds on demand.

Guest access

Guests will have their own room and will share the other spaces. You can use the kitchen or be autonomous.

Interaction with guests

I will usually be present, mainly in the other rooms; I can cook for or with the guests. I am available to organize and accompany the guests on excursions to the mountains, the river or the lake.

Other things to note

We overlook the Borromeo Gulf and its Islands, which are visible from the hut. Organizing a visit is very simple.

Renato and Eliza has rebuild the hut in the traditional style, with a lot of feeling for decoration. We loved everything! Going there trough the wood, making your a fire in the outside kitchen to prepare your meal, taking your shower outside, enjoy the greatest view. We had a wonderfull time thanks to some very friendly people who wantend to share this with us.

This is probably the most spectacular place I have ever stayed, it is simply beautiful. If you're really looking to get away from it all and just enjoy nature and the mountains then Renato's place is perfect. Renato very kindly met us a little later than anticipated, in the pouring rain and we were extremely grateful to him for doing this seeing as he couldn't stay in the cabin with us that night and had to go back out in to the rain- he's a very kind host! The walk up to the cabin takes about 30 mins and you definitely need good walking shoes as there is some uneven and steep ground to cover- this made our walk up in the rain very exciting though! We walked up and up and up and finally reached this magical cabin which has superb views over the lake and the mountains- it sits in its own little community with two other cabins and has everything you need for a comfortable stay - if you bring lots of food up you won't need to go back down to the town until you leave which means you can really relax. You could spend your time getting cosy in the cabin or sitting outside and enjoying the views and garden or you can head off early for a long walk in the Val Grande National Park - there are many possibilities. This experience inspired us to make more time to slow down and enjoy a simple life. Thank you Renato - we will be back next year :)

It is a wonderful hut in a beautiful and peaceful area. I enjoyed my stay a lot because it was exactly what I was looking for. Renato is a great host and gave me a lot of hints for hiking trails around the area as well as what to do in Verbania. I recommend the hut and would love to come back again.

Renato User ProfileRenato is a superhost.

Ciao, sono Renato vivo in un posto bellissimo e mi piace l'idea che altri lo possano apprezzare. Elisa e Filippo (6 anni) sono la mia famiglia, abbiamo una Baita tra i boschi che guarda il lago, ci piace avere ospiti. Mi piace l'idea che posso fare agli altri quello che vorrei fosse fatto a me, quindi posso lasciare la massima libertà agli ospiti come posso cucinare per loro, mi piace chiacchierare ma anche il silenzio intorno al fuoco. Potete scegliere ciò che preferite, l'importante è amare la montagna e la natura. P.S. per non mettervi a disagio vi dico subito che ho una gamba sola, spero per voi non sia un problema, per me non lo è ;-)

Hello, I am Renato, I live in a beautiful place and I like the idea that others can enjoy it. Elisa and Filippo (6 years old) are my family, we have a hut in the wood overlooking the lake and we like to have guests. I like the idea that I can do to others what I would have done to me, so I can leave maximum freedom to the guests or I can cook for them, I like to chat but also the silence around the fireplace. You can choose what you prefer; the important thing is that you love mountains and nature.
P.S. I tell you now that I have one single leg, so that I don’t make you uncomfortable. I hope it’s not a problem for you; it is not for me ;-)
