At Mason in the local patois francoprovenzale means "The Houses" and that is exactly what we want to offer you: the feeling of being at home. The structure is part of a wider recovery of an ancient hamlet of stone huts, the oldest dating back to the 14th century. The two huts, inserted into the nucleus of the hamlet, have been carefully restored. The furnishings are faithful to the original one and date back to the previous century. At Mason is not just a stay but an alpine experience.

Al Mason nel locale patois francoprovenzale significa "Le case" ed è proprio questo che vogliamo offrirvi: la sensazione di essere a casa.
La struttura è parte di un più ampio recupero di un antico borgo di baite in pietra, le più antiche risalenti al XIV secolo.
Le due baite, inserite nel nucleo della frazione, sono state oggetto di un attento restauro.
L'arredamento è fedele a quello originale e riporta al secolo precedente.
Al Mason non è solo un soggiorno ma un'esperienza alpina.

The space

The hut is on two levels, the first is accessed through a rather steep wooden ladder, so I emphasize that this stay is not suitable for those who are suffering from walking problems or are unfamiliar with the small spaces typical of housing Of high mountains.

La baita è su due livelli, al primo si accede tramite una scala in legno piuttosto ripida, mi preme dunque sottolineare che questo soggiorno non è adatto a coloro i quali soffrono di problemi di deambulazione o non hanno familiarità con gli spazi ridotti tipici delle strutture abitative di alta montagna.

Hi, I'm David, I love mountain and open spaces. I decided to go back where my origins were to develop this beautiful glimpse at the border with the Gran Paradiso Park. Making tourist reception was the most natural way to bring this small alpine country back to life, years ago I decided to open, together with other members, the zipline plant (more commonly known as the flight of the angel) Arcansel, a rope suspended between The two sides of my beautiful valley where to fly in the sky and enjoy the inimitable panorama from the Gran Paradiso National Park to the plain of Turin.

Ciao, sono Davide, amo la montagna e gli spazi aperti.
Ho deciso di ritornare là dove erano le mie origini per sviluppare questo splendido scorcio al confine con il Parco del Gran Paradiso.
Fare accoglienza turistica era il modo più naturale per riportare alla vita questo piccolo paese alpino, anni fa ho deciso di aprire, insieme ad altri soci, l'impianto di zipline (più comunemente conosciuto come volo dell'angelo) Arcansel, una fune sospesa tra i due lati della mia splendida valle dove librarsi in volo e godere dall'alto l'inimitabile panorama che spazia dal Parco Nazionale del Gran Paradiso fino alla pianura di Torino.

Thank you Davide pleasure to meet you. Enjoyed our stay at your place. Davide is a very nice gentleman. We visited as a family of 3. Two adults and a 7 year old. Communication with Davide was fast and very very helpful. Perfect accommodation. Rustic with contemporary twist, preserving the history of the building he has restored for future generations to see. Walk in shower and a separate high back bath. Very convenient for walks and travel around the area. 3 restaurants plus small bar in the area (one is a pizzeria near the playing fields which have a large children's area which is a popular hang out when the pizzeria is open). Davide was able to give us lots of advice and help. Nice touch of fridge with milk water and juice already stocked. Coffee, different tea's and breakfast snacks with Nutella and Jam. There is also a map of the local area at the apartment. This is an excellent base to explore the area by foot (or peddle bicycle) or up to the national park and if you get time to, also do the zip wire. Locals are all very friendly and if you get a chance, visit the Aggroturismo restaurant (food is plentiful and excellent local quality).

We loved to stay in the century-old house in this tiny village at the mountain. There's a small shop for daily necessities nearby, a bar and some restaurants. We made great trips walking up and down the mountains. Unforgettable. The house combines the simple life in an old house with modern luxury and design. Davide made us feel very welcome. We hope to come back!

Impeccable place for a couple for a weekend away. Just imagine sleeping in what centuries ago (literally) used to be a stable/barn which has now reconverted into a dwelling with an incredible attention to details. The place is simply stunning. Natural materials (wood and stone) are extensively used in perfect harmony with the history of the village. From the village you have the choice of an adrelinane rush 140 km/hr zip line, countless mountain bike trails or mountain trails. I opted for a bit of trail running and in less than an hour I was looking down the whole valley and able to see as far as Turin. Pity I did not have more time to explore the network of trails. Alessia and Andrea (they are Davide's business partners and take care of the property since they live in the same village) were extremely helpful and went out of their way to assist us when we had a minor glitch with the Wi-Fi connectivity. Last, but not least, we had a hearty dinner with homemade products in one of the restaurant nearby. We didn't check the others since we only stayed overnight but I am pretty sure the others would have been just as good - in Italy is not difficoult to eat very well at a very reasonable price if you go out of the beaten track and listen to local advice (again refer to Alessia and Andrea) In summary great place. Would go back in a heartbeat with no hesitation.
