Hi! My hut is an old building made by stone completely restored, quiet, with running water, solar electricity, and the best view you can image. Alpe Aurelio is a peaceful oasis in the nature, close to the Parco Nazionale Val Grande, and...we have one more hut!: https://www.airbnb.it/rooms/17273277?preview HAVE A LOOK!
“What a stay at the house of the Partisanin! An Airbnb experience of a very special kind. Those who are not afraid to walk 40 minutes of twisting paths uphill through a chestnut forest, should treat themselves to this place and this view of Lake Maggiore. The acquaintance with Andrea was something very special for us. He took a lot of time for us and offered us an extraordinary home. It is worthwhile remembering the story of his grandmother, who fought there as a partisan for freedom in the mountains many years ago. A thought on the edge: this is a place in the middle of almost untouched nature, everything you bring there, you should take back. It certainly was not the last time we were here. Mille Grazie!”

“Summary: this was an amazing weekend that exceeded our expectations by far! It was a surprise trip for my wife and until we arrived Miazzina, she did not even know whats going on. We flew in on a Friday afternoon so when we arrived the agreed meeting point in Miazzina, the sun was already going down. Thanks to the very good communication upfront we were set and had headlights with us. Renato is a very friendly guy who deserves the title superhost! Be prepared with right clothes, shoes and hike-compatible luggage!!! The 45minute way up to the cozy house goes really straight up into the mountains. I'm not an experienced hiker so I needed more than one pause to recover from the exhausting hike. Up there you find an amazing view on Lago Maggiore and a silence that is worth each and every of the steps. Be aware that you booked a mountain hut and not a 5-Star-Luxary-Spa! You will find this cozy house right next to two others and Renato is sharing his property and his tiny escape with you, so he might be around. The house has water from a mountain spring - cold and good! It provides everything you need from a fully equipped kitchen to bbq and fireplace, everything is there! An 80Ah battery provides a little electricity for a few hours of electric light, but thats it. You'll anyway spend the evenings under candle light in front of the fireplace or outside. To charge any device bring your portable charger or even better leave them away and enjoy the scenery :) You will find a full bed upstairs in the guest cabin. My recommendation is to bring your sleeping bag instead of bedlinen and use the space in your luggage for one or the other bottle of wine. Please also don't expect a fridge up there. Renato has an isolated box to keep a few things fresh. Our recommendation for the right luggage: sleeping bag, outdoor clothes, headlights, coffee for the Bialetti (Mokka), compact food like pasta, rice, salami, cheese, bread and you might like some wine in the evenings. The kitchen with a gas heater allows you to cook almost everything. Remember that you first have to bring everything up and later you have to bring the waste down again ;) If you're lucky, Renato will be around to show you good places during mushroom season and maybe he'll cook a nice Risotto. For the little luxary we all need, there is a small bathroom with a modern toilet. There is an option to heat some kind of a boiler for hot water and a hot shower but we did not use that. The tough guys can have a cold shower outside as well but keep in mind that the hydraulic water provision does not always provide enough pressure. You are in the mountains, so keep it an adventure. Finally I promise you will loved it and you will enjoy the hospitality of Renato.”

“We met Roberto in Miazzina. Then we followed Roberto. The ride went 300 meters over a steep bumpy gravel road. There we parked and loaded our luggage onto Roberto's motorized wheelbarrow. The way to the house was again 400 meters on foot. The house can only be reached on foot. The location is unique and very quiet. (It did not bother us, we always used the path as an evening walk with our dog) The house exceeded our expectations. The photos do not do justice to reality. The whole house is relatively new and lovingly furnished. We immediately felt very comfortable. From the house you can make beautiful walks in nature. There is electricity through the solar system. (230 volts) Hot water is made with a wood fired boiler. Roberto surprised us with a cold cuts plate. Also the Roberto does not speak German or English was no obstacle. He still managed to give us valuable tips. He also looked after us regularly and offered us his help. Also at the checkout he took care of our luggage, everything was uncomplicated. Dear Roberto, you are a very good host and we look forward to the next time. Birgit and Christoph with dog Dylan”
