The space

The mill of the end "800 is located in a magical atmosphere, at the foot of Monte Rosa, nestled in the woods of Valsesia (650mt asl) ............. a magical and wonderful, an ancient area with legends and traditions that has ancient origins, probably Etruscan, Celtic certainly ... through the narrow streets and the woods, there are various legends that you whisper, repeating.

Silence, tranquility, privacy, make our location, the ideal place for moments of true relax, passion and magician.

Surrounded by a creek and woods, the mill is equipped with all amenities: satellite TV, free wi-fi, telephone, tiled stove, fireplace, shower overlooking the river, etc.

Our service is expressed through confidentiality, care and preparation of the house ... ..... you will be greeted by a warm and welcoming and the flame of the fireplace.

Feel like at home without having to ask anybody anything except when it is necessary (a person will be at your disposal for any request).

We wish you a memorable stay at the center of one of the few left in the world supervolcanoes.
