n this mountain refuge of ours there is a jovial air about the place, one not only of seeking pleasure moment by moment but of generally being involveed in the family affairs of the day and relishing the tastes and flavours which abound.
elaxation is vital so 11.00 pm signals the day’s end. The rooms have quite low ceilings and the floors are of wood and cleaned in the old-fashioned way, but a cosy comfort is all yours. The small bathrooms are not of a technology luxury, but cold and hot water in abundance is luxury enough and some even come with a view!
reakfast is as abundant and wholesome as you could wish for and of an afternoon the terrace is full of life and splendour, and with afternoon herbal teas another highlight of your day. The pre-dinner treat is South Trolean style with two pieces of local speck to arouse and delight your senses. Dinner is in mountain tradition – simple but prepared with tender loving care and the goodness of the vegetable patch and the local farmers’ produce is all yours. Cesco’s joy was to always have a word or two with guests over dinner!
cesco & we
son of simple folk; Cesco became for ever associated with a small guesthouse in Pedecorvara, the very centre of old Corvara, where from the barns around, Sassongher stood and still stands proud above, it was back in1930. Now it is we, Costa family and staff, who are guardians of his creation and as the so called wellness professionals this important task is ours. We propose produce not passing through the usual wholesale chain for we feel ourselves responsible to support every local sustainable initiative and thus favouring our valley community. As for coffee and banana they come through the fairtrade route. Wherever we can we willingly do our best to be on the side of Mother Nature.
