MTB



Old military streets and singetrails of Maira Valley are the perfect place where you can go by Mountain Bike.
The Maira Valley offers you an enviable row of trails, from the easiest to the more challenging that can be taken by bike.
Our guesthouse can be the ideal basis to start the discovery of that splendid valley by MTB

CityBike e Bici da Corsa



The high Valley with its asphaltic serpentine trails allows you to reach some mountain passes in the higher regions by normal bikes.
The hills and the plains offer you many trails and little streets on which there aren´t many cars that you can take by any type of bike to cross the country side.
The position of our guesthouse, exactly between the plains and the high valley is perfect for those opportunities.

E-Bike



The streets and trails of the region are perfect to be cruised also with the modern E – Bikes.
Especially for that type of bikes we are developing new offers that will be published soon.


Rock Climbing



Climbing wall Roccabruna – Chast`Las

The climbing wall that is just above the village Castello is divided in two main parts: the big wall of “Chast`las” and a little wall a little bit more to the west. The wall “Chast´las” has a characteristic pyramidal form and there are trails on all 4 sides, so that it´s possible to do a chilly climbing even in summer. The wall in the west offers very short trails (max. 8 metres), but very intensive concerning the difficulty. The variety of the exposition of sectors offers to climb well also during the hot summer months. But the better saisons are for sure spring and autumn.
