Vacation information

Our top tip:
If hiring a car, consider a smaller vehicle which is better suited to the narrow mountain roads.
Room description:
1 double, 2 twins (sleeps 6) set in a beautifully restored 300 year-old farmhouse.
Bathroom, sitting room, balcony, kitchen (& utensils), log fire, washing machine etc. Family-friendly.
Self catering but in-house cooking can be arranged at a fee. Hypermarket and local deli's are easily accessible as are some fantastic local restaurants!
No Snow?
Casa dell'Ava is in a mountain village of Pianazzola which has about 50 houses in it and you will find more goats and chickens living there than snow cannons! People who come to stay here are generally looking for a winter vacation rather than specifically a skiing vacation, they will go winter walking, snow shoeing, etc. Natural snow falls from the beginning of December through to the end of March.

The views from the house were absolutely breathtaking. Sipping coffee on the balcony and soaking up the beauty of the mountains and the valley below was good for the soul. Read full review

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet and people

With the help of local craftsmen, we have restored a traditional mountain home on the Swiss-Italian border. The walls are several feet thick and we even have granite slabs on our roof instead of tiles, however we also have double glazed windows, electricity from hydroelectricity and one of the most modern stoves available that uses recycled paper pellets to heat the house. We are the only guest house in the village and as well as buying and restoring the house, we employ local people to clean and cook. Close to the house are some of the largest National Parks in the Alps for you to enjoy. We help to support them by paying 5% of our income to Orobie National Park. We also participate and help organise voluntary work in the park, which is less common in Italy than it is in the UK. We will give you information to help get to know the mountains and the National Parks better: on our website and in the house. You can also visit the visitor centers of the parks and get involved in activities such as guided walks. We will help you to reduce your impact on the local area. To conserve water, you’ll find a shower (a good one!) in the house rather than a bath and toilets with reduced water flush. Split waste disposal is available in bins at the entrance to the village (paper, plastic, cardboard, glass) and further split waste disposal (organic, metal) is available 6 days a week in the local town. Our accommodation provides self catering vacation home in the Alps that allows you to relax and enjoy a responsible approach to vacationing.
