The Residence

In the Heart of the Gran Paradiso National Park

Home/The Residence

Day and Night, Summer and Winter

In the morning, you will be awakened by the inebriating scent of freshly baked pastries. It is said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So why not be tempted by a buffet served in the cosy breakfast room of the residence? An energy boost… and off you go, ready to embark on an adventure in the mountains.

We take pleasure in recommending the most suitable activities based on your preferences, telling you about the planned events for the week, and suggesting excellent restaurants where you can savour the best in traditional, local cuisine.

We may not have a restaurant on site, but we relish organising cocktail get-togethers and polenta evenings, both in summer and in winter. After a day spent discovering the great outdoors in the wonder that is the Gran Paradiso National Park, you can relax in our wellness centre, breathe in the tranquillity of the common area, the perfect environment to read and study, or have fun in the playroom with your children. In the evening, you can retire to your spacious apartment, where you will soon drift off into the land of nod.

In the summer season, the Residence becomes a carpet of flowers, of a thousand colours that blend into the azure sky. In winter, when the white mantle of snow envelopes the world outside, Maison Pierrot welcomes you with its warm and soft embrace on the stone hearth of the stove standing majestically in the lounge.

The Playroom

This room is dedicated entirely to fun. An infinite number of stuffed animals, wooden trains, dolls, building blocks and so much more to brighten up the holidays of our little guests. They’ll have so much fun, they won’t want to leave. Parents, you’ve been warned!

The Garden and Outdoor Spaces

Our garden is a magical place. Almost every summer weekend, our guests are invited to partake in the “ritual” of “pre-polenta cocktails”. It’s a festive gathering where you can meet new friends, see old friends, talk about your day, or lazily swing in the hammock as the sun sets over the valley.

In winter, during the Christmas holidays, we set up a hut with a nativity scene in the garden. It attracts children and adults alike. Each year, the details of the scene are changed and it is always wonderful to welcome big and small dreamers who share the spirit of Christmas. We often organise events around the hut and serve polenta and mulled wine.

Relaxing and comfortable common areas

Have you finally managed to find some time to start reading your favourite book? In our reading room, you will find all the peace and quiet needed to read, study and even work on your computer, thanks to the free WIFI available throughout the residence.

And if you have forgotten to bring along your book, our well-stocked library offers mystery novels, tales of fiction, books in English and French, newspapers and unique books with beautiful illustrations of our mountains and stories of the age-old traditions of Cogne and the Gran Paradiso National Park.

Even the spacious and sunlit breakfast room and bar offer ample room for your studies and reading. And we also have a lounge with comfortable sofas arranged in front of a nostalgic soapstone stove.

The Relaxation and Wellness Area

“Today I bashed through some of the most exhilarating ski runs.”

“I crushed kilometres and kilometres of cross-country trails.”

“Tomorrow I’m going up to the Vittorio Sella mountain shelter.”

It’s not the amazing adventure you dared to try that matters; it’s the relaxation area waiting for you when you get back that counts. With the “dry heat” of the sauna, the steamy, scented vapours of the Turkish bath, the thousand blue bubbles of the whirlpool tub, the salt cave where you breathe in the sea, with all or anyone of these, your body will feel rejuvenated, your muscles will relax and tomorrow you will be ready for a new adventure.

And for those of you who did not climb any mountains but simply walked through the woods… well, why not revel in a pure moment of pampering and bliss?
