  • Description

    Description

    We have a boutique hotel in the Italian Alps and we would love to welcome you to our place :) We are located in a small village called Valtournenche located about two hours from Milano.

    We have been up and running for about 6 years and our focus is on creating a real family feel for our guests. Every night we have a dinner around a long table for the guests, and after that they enjoy our bar with beer and wine. Many of our guests come back and we see that as a real sign that we have made their time here special.

    In summer, spring and fall our guests go hiking or biking, and all year around they can also go skiing. The winter time is of course better for that but we do have snow all year around. Crazy I know :) You can have a look at Valtournenche- Cervinia- Zermatt which is our famous ski system.

    We offer you free accommodation and free food. We will prepare dinner and you can eat from the breakfast buffet, but lunch you will have to sort out yourself. There are always leftovers, or you can cook something. Also to make sure you get even more out of your stay we will offer you a free lift card!! ;)

    *️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️ We are about to start fixing up our staff apartments, and we would love your help with that. See it as a chance to make it feel more like home for yourself :) These are classic Italian apartments from the 1970s, but we feel we should make them a bit nicer.*️️️️️*️️️️️

    We look forward to hosting you!

    Currently availability from the 20th of august.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Great learning experience when it comes to the hotel and tourism business and a chance to explore the beautiful alps on foot, on a bike or while skiing.

    Help

    Honestly as long as you are friendly and do not mind working hard while keeping a smile this will be a breeze. Now it can become a bit stressful in the kitchen as we always aim to provide excellent food, but it is very manageable.

    - Help with breakfast 06-11 am and then you are done for the day. Set the table, cut cheese and meat, help cleaning up.

    - Help with dinner 17-22 pm after for example a full day of hiking or skiing. Set the table, light the candles, cut cheese and meat, help cleaning up.

    - Help out with check-in and attend the reception between 12-17 pm. The rest of the day you are free. Show people to their rooms, and give them a warm welcome, make sure there are some snacks in the afternoon.

    Basic Italian apartment, bathroom and a bed. Depending on what suits you and us best it will be private or shared we have both options. We are in the process of fixing it up, but it is still very liveable, we just want to make it nicer. There is no WiFi in the apartments, but good 4G reception and you have access to WiFi in the hotel.
