Starting from the Pravasivo car park (near the Bagni Vecchi), follow the direction to Pramezzano and Uzza on dirt road no. 533, walking for a long stretch through the woods to a panoramic clearing with a wooden building. Here you can stop for a snack or continue the walk towards Casina Alta (another beautiful panoramic spot).

This is an amazing hotel, very new and modern but it still has a welcoming feel as it isn't oversized. The rooms are very generous and we had a lovely balcony with a great view of the surrounding mountains. The breakfast was really good as was the parking garage downstairs, there was always plenty of spaces and you could come and very easily. The staff were all really friendly and very helpful, I couldn't recommend this hotel enough!

We stayed the 12/2/22 for one week and I can’t praise the hotel enough. From the moment we walked in we’re treated excellently by all staff. The hotel was so clean and well maintained. Breakfast was great and the bar area in the evening was nice. We will definitely be staying again.

The room was amazing. Wow, what a place. The room had everything we needed. Large bathroom with shower, dining area and an amazing bed. Super comfy. Breakfasts next morning was also out of this world. Freshly preases orange juice, honey comp lots of different rolls and bread. Best Cappuccino I had in a while. I definitely want to go back!
