Now this is what a skiing holiday with family and friends should be like: a traditional yet unique house with everything we need. Spacious kitchen, warm living and Well located between skiing area and village main square. Kids (5, 3, 2 years old) had their best holiday ever and eldest took skiing lessons for first time. We certainly want to go back!!! Due to amazing time we extended stay with two days. Snow, nice local people, restaurants, all within reach. Ciao

We booked Fra & Marta chalet for a few days over the Christmas period. We were a group of six adults and two small children and we had a lovely time. Fra and Marta answered our initial questions in a timely manner and the organization for the check in could have not been smoother. At the check in the house was clean and warm. We all, including the kids, liked the house and the fact that there is an external stair (only a few steps to be more precise) to get to the night level upstairs did not create us any problem at all. We all concurred that the pictures do not give full justice to the house and its warm atmosphere. The ski runs in the Pecetto area (Belvedere) are 5-10 minutes walking distance from home and all the necessary things for skiing can be rented there. Near home there is a nice patisserie and some restaurants/hotels. Staffa, 15-20 minutes walking distance, is where it is possible to find some more restaurants and some grocery shops. Pecetto and Staffa are small mountain villages ideal for someone who wants to spend some time in a quiet place.

This chalet is perfect for people wanting to stay somewhere rustic and authentic in Macugnaga. The chalet is very old (over 300 years) and has lots of charm. It also has low ceilings, an outdoor staircase, only one bathroom (URL HIDDEN) other words, it's not modern luxury. But my family + friends loved it. We were 3 adults and 4 kids (aged 6-10) and it suited us fine. The boys took the bunk beds and the girls shared a double bed. We cooked in 3 nights. The kitchen is not fancy but it was well-stocked with everything one could need. The location is OK, halfway between Staffa and Pecetto. There is a bakery very close where you can get pastries for breakfast, but otherwise one needs to drive a few minutes to get to the ski slopes, restaurants, shops, etc. There is no on-site parking. You need to park a hundred meters away at the public car park. But we did not find that to be a major problem. Macugnaga is a small, pretty, authentic Italian village. The ski slopes are divided into two bases. The Belvedere slopes are perfect for beginners, as they are small, gentle and quiet (there are a few short red/black runs). Our kids went into lessons every day and the instructors were fantastic. The Monte Moro slopes suit intermediates well (mostly red runs). The downside is that the two bases are not connected, so it is almost impossible to drop your kids at lessons at Belvedere and then ski at Monte Moro. The Macugnaga restaurants served good quality pasta, pizza and other Italian mountain food (e.g. polenta). Don't expect anything fancy but prices were very reasonable. Fra and Marta were very helpful, meeting us upon arrival and answering any questions we had during the stay.

We've had an excellent stay here although since there had been an enormous dump of snow which caused the electricity in the city to die. But Marta and Fra were both really helpful in keeping us informed and even offered to move us to a nearby hotel. The house is really authentic and really gives you a very welcome feeling! It's probably the best airbnb we've stayed in. The skiing area is small but not really crowded and ideal for skiing with kids.

Meine Familie und ich (zwei Erwachsene und zwei kleine Kinder, 1 und 3 Jahre alt) haben die Sommerferien in diesem wunderschönen alten Haus verbracht. Das Haus sieht genauso aus wie auf den Fotos. Die Räume sind klein, aber gemütlich und völlig ausreichend. Die Küche bietet alles, was man braucht, um sich selbst zu versorgen. Die Lage des Hauses ist fantastisch. Man hat durch die Gondel und den Sessellift kein Auto nötig, um die schönsten Wanderungen zu machen. Es gibt überall Refugien, in denen man gut essen kann und in Staffa kann man sich mit Lebensmitteln eindecken, wenn auch zu gepfefferten Preisen. Ein Großeinkauf in Domodossola empfiehlt sich bei einem längeren Aufenthalt. Die Umgebung des Hauses ist wunderschön, man kann sich an den Bergpanoramen satt sehen. Im Juli ist es noch sehr ruhig, ab August beginnt die italienische Feriensaison und man muss mit vielen Wandertouristen und an den Wochenenden mit Open-Air-Festivals rechnen. Auch mit Kindern ist das Haus absolut empfehlenswert!

Accoglienza perfetta, ci siamo trovati benissimo, la baita è molto bella. La posizione è perfetta sia per raggiungere gli impianti, 5 minuti a piedi, sia per andare a Staffa a fare un po di spesa. Il parcheggio coperto è vicinissimo e molto economico. La vicinanza alla buonissima pasticceria è stata una piacevolissima e golosissima comodità. La casa è grande e ben organizzata, accogliente e "calda". Abbiamo trascorso le vacanze di carnevale piacevolmente e alla prima occasione torneremo sicuramente, magari anche in estate per delle piacevoli escursioni nei dintorni. Grazie e a presto !!!

E stato una bella scoperta con tantissima neve in marzo 2014. E una chalet veramente ben tenuto che raccomando assolutamente sia per la gentilezza, la correttezza e la disponibilità delle proprietarie Marta e Francesca ( vi risponderanno volentieri anche in fase di preparazione ), come pure per la struttura della dimora che associa belle testimonianze del passato (grande camino all'entrata di casa) con tutto il confort necessario, un grande soggiorno e una cucina recente ben arredata con lavastoviglie. La zona notte (la dimensione delle stanze non ha rappresentato un problema, tradizionalmente piu' piccole in montagna) si trova al piano superiore passando da una scala esterna non accessibile dal giardino. Nessuna pecca per la location, l'unico aspetto da migliorare a Macugnaga sono gli impianti sciistici di risalita lenti in caso di afflusso massicio durante i fine settimana. Ideale per famiglie con figli piccoli che imparano a sciare.
