Our vacation rental

THE ‘SECOU’

A home for your holidays, where past, present and future come together and blend in splendid harmony. A large window brings the sun in every room, while the lush greenery surrounding it regales guests with beautiful colors and perfumes. The old ‘secou’ from 1871, once a building where chestnuts were dried, seamlessly flows into a wooden chalet with modern minimalist interiors. A renovation in tune with the historical heritage of the building, that revolves around beauty of nature.

A cozy embrace

THE BEDROOM

The black walls reveal the origins of this part of the chalet, the old ‘secou’ where chestnuts were dried, an activity that blackened the mighty stone walls. Today, it is ready to welcome you with its comfortable double bed.

Relax and unwind

THE LIVING ROOM AND KITCHEN

Brightened by the large window, this part of the chalet is framed by beautiful wood paneling. One side is dedicated to the kitchen with an induction cook top, refrigerator, dishes and cookware for meals. A coffee machine and a kettle with a selection of teas and herbal teas can also be found here.

The other side of the room is designed for recreation and rest, with a satellite TV where you can also watch Netflix and wireless Bluetooth speakers.

OUR BREAKFAST

Every morning, or every evening if you prefer, we will bring you a breakfast box. You will find in it homemade cakes and yogurt and a choice of local, farm-to-table delicacies.

A kaleidoscope of emotions

THE GARDEN

1300 square meters of garden, entirely yours for the duration of your stay. Here, in Summer, green and blue chase one another to the rhythm of crickets, while in Winter silence and white reign supreme, those same lawns then explode with the colors of Spring that in Autumn are painted with gold. Just sit in front of the window or in the garden to admire the wonder of the seasons.

A VALLEY NESTLED BETWEEN MOUNTAINS AND SEA

With its infinite sky and landscapes that seem to exist beyond time, the Valle Stura is a treasure trove of natural and cultural riches, which you can discover on foot or by bike, rafting, horseback riding, or skiing. From Moiola, where Lou Estela is located, you can also easily reach many cities rich in charm and history as well as the beaches of both the Ligurian and the French Riviera.

FIND YOUR FLOW

There are 60 kilometers of rivers to explore in our valley. Paddle down brooks and streams or simply take a dip to cool down after a hike, whatever you choose, the crystal-clear waters of the Stura di Demonte await you.

PEAK TO PEAK

Reach high altitudes to ski or have fun on over 100 km of cross-country skiing trails, where Italian champions train. And when it is no longer snow that whitens the slopes but mountain flowers, the network of hiking trails allows you to explore the valley on foot at the slow pace of nature.

ART AND HISTORY

The Valle Stura resonates with a spirit of times gone by, when smugglers and partisans laid claim to the mountain, but history hasn't held innovation back and today you can find here a wonderful balance of old and new. Discover what makes our land unique by visiting contemporary art museums and historical monuments alike.
