Flat 6 is part of Terra Alpina, a former farmhouse that was completely rebuilt and converted to six luxurious holiday apartments in 2007/2008. It sits 300 metres above the road to the St. Bernard tunnel and is half-way between the centre of Aosta and the Swiss border (15 minutes in either direction). It is very convenient for the ski resorts of the Aosta Valley.

Even by the standards of the Alps, the views are spectacular. From north to south there is a 30 km panorama across the Aosta Valley surrounded by dramatic Alpine peaks. It sits at an altitude of 1,300 metres, so the environment is extremely lush in summer and relatively mild in winter.

Further details indoors

The apartment is equipped to a very high standard. The kitchen is equipped as a full domestic kitchen, not a holiday rental unit. The bathroom is very stylish with a high quality bath and shower. There is a double bedromm with a large wardrobe and a second bedroom with two bunk beds. Both bedrooms have large windows looking over the private garden and the valley.

The living area includes an extending dining table and a very large double sofa-bed. The living area has direct access to a private garden which overlooks the valley.

Further details outdoors

There is a private parking area for all flats next to the front entrance. There is also 1.5 acres (6000m2) of shared garden which includes meadows and a wood. There is a path through the wood that leads down to a charming picnic spot (still within the grounds of Terra Alpina).

Further details

The apartment includes a welcome pack which has essentials such as tea, coffee, milk etc. There is an English-speaking manager who lives 10 minutes away and can handle any problems.

The North West Italy region

The Aosta Valley is equally attractive in winter and summer.

In winter, it is one of the great skiing areas of Italy, with international resorts such as Courmayeur and Cervinia plus a host of medium-sized resorts such as Pila, La Thuile and Monterosa. Two ski resorts are within 20 minutes of Terra Alpina and there are eight ski resorts within an hour's drive.

In summer, it is even more popular as Italians come here to escape the humidity of the plains. It has a huge number of sporting activities in the summer, including hiking, mountain biking, horse riding and white-water rafting.

The city of Aosta itself has more Roman ruins than any city in Europe outside Rome itself, and has a superb museum under the Roman walls. As the capital of one of Italy's most prosperous regions, it also has excellent shops and restaurants and has a beautiful pedestrianised town centre.

Gignod

In the summer, sports include horse-riding, golf (there is a nine hole course within walking distance of the house), white water rafting, hiking, mountain biking - in fact virtually any sport that can be done in the Alps. All year round, there are the thermal spas, a brand-new swimming pool and wellness centre less than 10 minutes drive from the house, plus the historic city of Aosta.

It was built by the Romans and has been the gateway to the Alps for 2000 years. With so much trade passing through, it has always been very prosperous and the local architecture (and shops!) reflect that heritage.

"An amazing place to stay in Aosta"

Terra Alpina is a beautiful ski chalet with six separate apartments. There is no front desk and not a lot of contact with the owner or manager. A stay is self-contained and self-catering. The apartmen… More

"Spectacular views, high in the hills, surrounded by snow-capped mountains"

The property is in a spectacular location. The flat was decorated to a very high standard, with good kitchen equipment.
We had a problem with one of the locks, and someone was sent promptly to sort it out.
In the summer, there is plenty of walking, and one or two restaurants not too far away.
I would have expected a hair dryer and an iron to be provided.
There is poor sound insulation, and all the floors are wooden. As we were on the ground floor we could hear a lot of noise from the flat above.
