Mountain apartment in Valsesia located at Belvedere di Fobello (altitude 1200 meters above sea level), suitable for families, pensioners, lovers of trekking; excellent base for long walks in the woods or in the mountains, in full contact with nature and far from the urban noise. Possibility to be accompanied, for walks in the mountains or to a hut located in a pasture about 2 hours' walk, with optional polenta.
“A place in the mountains where the road ends. Tiny village with old houses. The apartment is authentically furnished like a grandma would still live here. With thick and heavy warm blankets, woven table-clothes. Very genuine atmosphere for this place. You can go outside and hike the mountains right from the house or slide the slopes in the winter for some great fun. The area is scattered with tiny villages dated a few centuries ago. Pietro welcomed us with the bottle of wine and there was everything to have a very nice breakfast. 10 min drive down there is also a very nice pizzeria. If you drive in the dark, beware of the deer crossing the mountain roads, we almost crashed into one and saw a few more on the roadsides.”
Stone house, ground floor: entrance, bathroom, kitchen with fireplace, first floor: leaving area with futon, TV, view of the river; second floor: bedroom. The area offers beautiful walks along the Mastallone creek as well as more demanding hikes on high mountains (all marked by the CAI). The Mastallone is one of the best rivers for fly fishing in the North of Italy, characterized by runs and deep bathing pools. Just on the corner, there is a nice, small tavern and about 2 km far away a grocery
“To me, Walters House was perfect! It is a self renovated house with 3 floors, very skillfully done and with an amazing eye for detail and showing a great taste for interior styling. It has all that one would ever need for a full holiday of a few weeks. Ever better, find a job and you could actually become a resident of the magnificent valley without moving stuff out of your old house. The communication with Walter was perfect, to the point and very forthcoming. Keep in mind that you will be a guest in a locally situated valley, so practice your Italian! It makes in person communication with Walter much easier, which will be a great addition on your holiday. The strada provinciale in front of the house is actually more of local road and, aside of an enthousiastic local, is quiet and poses no problems when you use the road to explore the valley on foot (try the ancient mule-road, which starts just a few hundred meters away). When you're done relaxing near the river or exploring the valley and villages, make your way to Fobello and eat a fresh and excellent pizza in the local bar. In short, you SHOULD come to Walter's place if you like small-time tourism, peace and quiet and like (respect) the local atmosphere in a perfect valley which accomodates countless hours of exploring the alps and gives you kind faces, inviting you to participate in the local live, all around. Highly recommended indeed!”

“Raffaelina is a real super-host! She cared for and supported us during the whole 2-weeks stay in her apartment. Excellent welcome-package: you arrive and find out that you need a car to shop for food, but you find in the apartment what you need for the first breakfast, great! Very clean house, with apparently new linen and towels, comfortable beds and a fantastic view of the mountains! Lina gave us suggestions and indications to enjoy the surroundings and make our life easy. Thank you Lina for making our vacation an incredible experience!”
