|Address||Chaté, 11020 torgnon, Italy|
It is located in Chaté, a Torgnon's hamlet, and it's 1400 meters far from the town, 1650 meters high above sea level, in a very quiet property.
It got a 50 sqm private garden dominating the entire Valtournenche Valley, exclusively reserved for the property and so the guests. As it is for the apartment, the garden itself it's sunnied all day long because of the lucky and open exposure to south.
You may agree then, it is an ideal place for families or groups of friends seeking sunshine, relax, a safe and peaceful space for children to play outside and the chance to take advantage of the holidays even just resting in the garden.
Also, you don't have to look too far for walking trails, some start directly behind the corner!
The apartment's floor is 36 sqm and it got everything you may need during your stay. It is functional, cozy and pleasant to the eye.
It's organised as follows:
Living room with open-plan kitchen and direct access to the private garden, where you'll find:
- a large sofa bed with 3 sitting seats (200x160 cm mattress - 2 beds)
- lcd television with satellite tv
- an extendable dining table with six chairs
- a large refrigerator with freezer
- a very useful microwave
- all the cooking and dining tools
Plus, a booksharing corner filled with brochures, touristic Aosta Valley's infos, trails maps, books for babies etc. that might be useful and inspiring for your activities.
Bedroom (3 beds total) furnished with a bunk bed, a single storage bed and a large wardrobe to store your clothes with care. The room has a window on the back of the building.
Bathroom with shower, it got a window on the private terrace. An hairdryer is provided.
In the area that connects the three rooms are located a closet which contains some cleaning tools and a mirror obtained from an old snowboard.
The private garden with stunning view over the Valtournenche valley and completely exposed to south. From late spring to early fall you'll find external wood table and benches on it to enjoy the sunshine: having breakfast on the terrace regenerates even more than the food itself. Beach chairs and umbrella are also included.
The heating system is independent:
a brand new GPL hot-water heating has been installed in spring 2013. It is very userfriendly. It supplies the radiators, hot water stream for taps and shower and gas for the kitchen.
in-wall electric heaters (in each room)
Indoor parking lot in the building common area.
Ski locker room just next to the parking lot.
Torgnon's ski resort includes a cable car, three chair lifts, a baby winter park and a snow park. You will also find a ski and snowboard school. It it not the Aosta Valley's biggest ski resort, but it's the one which got the highest sun exposure of the whole region.
All the alpine and nordic slopes, the baby winter park, the snowpark, resort's bars and restaurants are close one to the other and well linked, so it's easy to look for each other for those who'd like to spend the day doing different activities.
Do not underestimate the fact that the ski area, thanks to its geografical position, its naturally protected from the strong winds which blow when atmosferic disturbances are coming from north in the winter season. It often comes out that when Cervinia's lifts stay closed because of the strong wind, Torgnon's are open without any problem.
The alpine slopes lenght is 23 kilometers and are all equipped with artificial snow machines. The slopes level of difficulty is varied: you can find blue ones for beginners, reds and blacks.
4 nordic slopes allow to exercise in a peaceful atmosphere and surrounded by beautiful panoramas. Loops are 3, 5, 7,5 e 15 km long, with the first one been equipped with artificial snow machines.
Snowshoes (so called "racchette da neve" or "ciaspole", in Italian) tracks are also available.
HOW TO REACH TORGNON LIFTS FROM THE APARTMENT
The apartment is car advised.
Lifts are reachable going to town where you can take the cablecar or going directly to the ski area where there's a chair lift waiting for you. In both cases driving distances are narrow (respectively 1,4 and 2 km) and you'll find free and wide parking areas.
People who don't want or cannot drive towards the lifts can use the free on-call skibus service: the stop is 20 meters far from the apartment. It is available every weekend of the 2013-2014 season until March 16th.
VALTOURNENCHE AND CERVINIA
Those who want to take advantage of illimitate lenght slopes and glacier views or would just consider a different way to spend the day around, the international ski resort of Valtournenche-Cervinia-Zermatt (Italy and Switzerland) is 20 minutes drive far.
360 km of slopes are waiting for you just as the Matterhorn is!
Summer ski is also available there.
Everything you will find in the apartment is at your disposal. The kitchen is fully equipped and some cleaning tools are provided. Blankets and pillows are also there but in the opposite we don't provide sheets and towels. We can exceptionally rent it to those who are coming by plane or in some way are unable to bring their own.
We are pets lovers so, out of the month of August, small sized ones are welcome. On summer peak season (the month of August) we are sorry but for neighbourhood reasons we decided not to rent to people who would like to share their stay with their four paws friends =(
