Zimmer Casa Prati
A beautifully restored bed and breakfast in the centre of Alagna and within walking distance of the main ski station.
This is an original and beautifully restored Walser building, displaying all the original characteristics of the old Walser architecture. Casa Prati is owned and run by our dear friend Marisa and has been in her family for many generations.
Marisa is a wonderful upholder of Walser mountain customs and is often to be seen in traditional dress and at work on her handicrafts. Her father was an old local mountain guide and Marisa talks fondly of those days when her father was a guide. Marisa’s brother Nando, oversaw the incredible restoration and did much of the work himself.
Marisa offers warm and genuine Walser hospitality on a Bed & Breakfast basis.
The breakfast buffet has a selection of regional cheeses, hams and home made jams as well as cereals, fruit juices and a choice of coffees and tea.
There is a parking area, as well as ski room. To relax, there is a sauna and small spa at your disposal.
All bedrooms are very comfortably decorated in traditional wood and stone with ensuite.
Alagna Valsesia is a commune and small village high in the Valsesia alpine valley in the province of Vercelli, Piedmont, northern Italy, a UNESCO World heritage site since 2013.
The ski pass booking system in the Monterosa works on the basis that the earlier ski passes are booked, the better the price. Ski passes booked within 10 days of your trip are likely to cost more than those bought in advance.
The Zuba team will ask you for the relevant information as soon as your accommodation is secured, so that we can make a swift booking for you.
The rental shop SportHaus is located on the left hand side as you approach the lift station. They offer a good range of equipment for everyone. This includes small skis, boots and helmets for children as well as alpine skis, snow boards and ski touring skis for the more adventurous!
The shop is open every day: 8am - 7pm
