    What else ...

    The kitchen and supplies are available, consist of usually vegetarian, but sometimes also meat or fish (vegans are welcome, I can adopt easily, if you have any food intolerance or special requests, no problem, everything can be done, you just have to warn first to organize.
    There are many local (abandoned) villages around you can explore on hikes. if you need the bustle of town you can go to Domodossola which is 25 minutes by car, also possible with bus. A car is available.
    Above all you better be a nature lover as what you're surrounded with is mountains and nature. Plenty of beautiful hikes / climbing spots and amazing places to see
