Relais San Rocco - Campertogno

The hotel is not open during the winter season 2016-17

This elegant 19th-century residence surrounded by baitas (chalets) in an 18th-century village has been restored to its former splendor and is now a very comfortable 4-star hotel. Frescoes and antique furniture provide an intriguing contrast to contemporary styling and design, lending a personal atmosphere to the interior of this lovely mountain residence.

Situated in the village of Campertogno, it is 15 minutes drive from Alagna and 5 minutes from the resort of Alpe Mera.  During the winter season, the hotel provides transport to and from these resorts.

The 24 rooms differ from each other in terms of color, furnishings and structurally. The suites, the apartments in the baitas and double rooms, all of which have LCD TV, a mini-bar and safe, have splendid views over the valley, up to the mountains or over the village.

The hotel history

Relais San Rocco was built as one of the local Gianoli family residences in 1861 and interestingly had its own theatre, testifying to the cultural interests of the family and their friends. They were builders of railways but took an active part in the rich cultural life of the valley.

Campertogno, the village Relais San Rocco is located in, was also the home of the Gilardi family who produced a fine sculptor and painter of the same era, the works of whom can be admired locally.

Later the villa was sold to the Rondolino family and maintained as a family home for some years, but then became a home for unmarried mothers who were taken in by a charitable Catholic institution and allowed to keep their children with them.

Throughout the hotel, signs of this period can be found: a school desk is to be seen in one of the meeting rooms and some of the suites on the 4th floor have refectory tables used by the children with interesting little round holes in them, where the children put their plates so they would remain anchored to one spot during meals.

The villa was kept by the same organisation until it was finally abandoned in the latter part of the 20th century, but it evolved into a summer camp venue for children.

The current owners bought it in the early 90's and spent a number of years restoring it to its former splendour, converting it into a comfortable 4 star hotel. The many frescoes in bedrooms, public areas and in the impressive stairwell have been cleaned and fixed, but in no way restored, as they were in excellent condition.

It is interesting to note that just 2 weeks after it was decided to call the hotel Relais San Rocco (the little church behind the hotel is also named after San Rocco the patron saint of farm animals) a painting of San Rocco was found in the attics. After extensive restoration work it can be admired today in the bar area of the hotel. You will also see other references to this saint in the breakfast room, to the left of the fireplace, in two very fine naif paintings.
