The Residence, the new construction, can be found between the villages of Riva Valdobbia and Alagna only 2 km from the ski lifts. The result of a long project which was started in 2005, its aim was to reconstruct old buildings existing in the area. Comprising 4 characteristic mountain houses in wood and stone set out behind two monolithic stone masses which originally gave their name to the community which settled here, the building includes 16 accommodation units with more then 70 beds. Clients have many services at their disposal: a good-sized private car park, a beautiful summer garden with children’s play area, a heated ski room and reception with trained staff. During the winter season, moreover, there is a transfer service to the ski lifts. All of the apartments are tastefully decorated and equipped with useful accessories, they have independent heating systems, colour satellite television, telephone also with internal line, tableware, and linen for kitchen, bedrooms and bathroom some apartments have also private balconies. The framework in which this is all set is unique in the whole valley: the apartments on the north side enjoy the marvellous views across the village of Alagna to the southern face of Monte Rosa the south-facing apartments have sun all day and look out over the village of Riva Valdobbia. At the moment under construction is also a health centre, including hydromassage, sauna, Turkish baths, Scottish showers, massage rooms and relaxation areas, planned to open in summer 2008. The reconstruction of the original buildings was well thought-out and has been carried out with great skill to create a welcoming refuge, characteristic in style, but functional and creative. A meeting place for spirit, mind and body, where environment, nature, sport and well-being are returned to a real equilibrium.
