Welcome to the place where the wilderness meets the wellness: the AlpsWellness Lodge, a fully equipped chalet with indoor sauna and outdoor HotSpring SPA!

Check out our social pages @AlpsWellnessLodge

Located in the hamlet of Casa Zanni in Falmenta, a small village in the Italian Alps near the Swiss border, this is the perfect location for a stay in the Alps!

The Lodge is a stand-alone house with 3 levels:
- on the lower level there is the Cantina EnoCult, an original cellar craved in the rock of the mountain.
- On the main floor there is the entrance of the Lodge with the kitchen-living area and the bathroom. Nearby the entrance door there is a small storage room with the laundry machine and some brooms.
- On the upper floor inside the Lodge there is the open space bedrooms area, with 2 double beds.

The outdoor garden has 3 levels, the lower one, beside the cellar door, is the solarium, perfect for sunbathing until late afternoon; the middle one is a strip of grass with some fruit trees and a strawberries plater; the higher one, outside of the Lodge main floor, there is a wooden table for eating out and the outdoor wellness area.

The Lodge is immersed in an ancient fruit garden (with ancient apple and pear trees), a truly natural experience for your senses.
In the external garden, during summer season you will have the chance to taste the best organic vegetables as they will grow directly outside the Lodge in our Veggie Garden! You can enjoy everything inside; depending on season, you will have the chance to taste various type of salads, courgettes, tomatoes, eggplants, strawberries, mixed aromatic herbs and many more.

Kitchen facilities:
The kitchen is equipped with modern tools:

- Extractor fan
The kitchen is also equipped with dishware, cutlery, glasses (water, wine, flûtes), cookware, tableware; you will find anything you need to cook and eat&drink!
During winter you’ll have a wooden table with a bench and two chairs, while in summer the wooden table will be outdoor for you to dine outside, inside you’ll have the IKEA Norden Table with two chairs. If you are more than two guests you can bring downstairs the chair you need from the bedrooms area (total of 4 chairs in the Lodge).
We do also provide great ground Starbucks coffee, a grinder and a Moka pot for a real Italian coffee making experience (if you do not know how to use the Moka pot, don’t worry, I’ll give you all the detailed instructions).
#ThinkGreen and #PlasticFree: Tap spring-water is drinkable but we do provide you also with a Brita caraffe. Spring controlled water can be found in Cannobio at Fonte Carlina (at the beginning of the road going in the Valley).
Basic cooking ingredients are always available for free (oil, salt, pepper, sugar, mixed herbs) and also a basic Italian food kit is always available for free in the lower breakfast bar drawer (first choice pasta and tomato sauce) in case you arrive late in the evening and have not got any food to eat.

Living area:
The kitchen and living area are an open space taking the most of the main floor. There is a LED TV with a G00gle Chromecast for you to stream all your favourite on demand movies and series. The high speed WiFi service is provided by Eolo, an Italian startup that gives internet access through a dish antenna, giving high speed connection also in lost places. The WiFi signal is good in the whole house and in the external area. NEW2021: Wi-Fi signal is enhanced in the Garden with a special repeater.
A pellet heater is available, easy to use (instructions provided), and there is also a fireplace for the cold autumn and winter nights!

Bathroom area:
Bathroom is on the main floor and is equipped with a Sauna with chromotherapy lights, chromotherapy shower with river stones floor, sink, bidet and toilet. We do provide shower gel & shampoo, hands soap and intimate soap from organic&bio source; as this Lodge is environment friendly we ask you to use only these biodegradable products for cleaning and washing purposes (feel free to use your products if from bio sources!).

Bedrooms area:
The upper floor is an open space with 2 double beds. The bedroom 1 (on the left coming upstairs) has chromotherapy bulb lights and a wide window looking at east on the outdoor wellness area; during autumn and winter there is a great view of the valley while in summer you will enjoy the fresh view of the persimmon tree leaves.
The bedroom 2 (on the right coming upstairs) has a window looking south-west, fresher during summer, with a great view of the mountains of the valley. If coming in 2 guests sleeping together, we ask you to choose one bed only for your stay.
Both rooms has a chair, a Ikea Kallax furniture and a birch wood coat rack.

In summer, for stays of more than 3 days, I will need to make some maintenance to the pool and the garden so, upon check-in, we will arrange how to manage it without disturbing your stay and guaranteeing your full privacy.

Falmenta, Piedmont, Italia

The AlpsWellness Lodge is located in the small village of Falmenta, in the hamlet of Casa Zanni n 4. This small hamlet has few houses (mainly secondary homes from foreigners) and a pretty little church dedicated to the Virgin Mary of Re (seasonally open for visit). The Cannobina Valley is a wide wilderness area, at the borders of the Val Grande Natural Reserve.

Suggested activities:
- Easy walks (sneakers friendly) both going on the street (20 minutes to reach a beautiful waterfall) or going back to the village of Falmenta (15 minutes going back to town).
- Medium trails (mountain shoes required): Crealla Village, Mergugna meadow. 1 hour each.
- Difficult trails (mountain shoes and clothing required): Furnà refuge, Monte Zeda summit.
More details on mountain trails available in the Lodge.
- Bathing in the river is a great activity for those who are not scared from cold water! Best spots are Ponte Barro (just 20 mins walk from the Lodge), Ponte Falmenta (5 mins by car and then 10 mins walk) or Orrido di Sant'Anna (15 minute by car and 5 minutes walk). If not used to mountain trails, the best spot is Orrido di Sant'Anna.
- Lake beaches in Cannobio.
- Isole Borrommee on Lake Maggiore are a must see (together with Stresa town) for a full-day excursion.

Suggested restaurants in the area:
- Grotto Sant'Anna: a beautiful location with excellent food&drinks. Only in summen months, lots of outside seats. Perfect for international cousine.
- Trattoria Cannobio: great food in a location just in the heart of Cannobio. Perfect for traditional cousine of the lake.

Falmenta has only one bar in the main village square (where the Church of San Lorenzo and the ancient bell-tower is located).

We cannot guarantee a private parking available at the Lodge due to the road structure. The closest parking facility is in Falmenta (free public parking spots and free parking on the main road), only 400 mt from the Lodge.
The road to reach the Lodge from Falmenta village is narrow (2 meters wide in some points), so you can always come up to unpack your car if you have a small/medium car and/or if you are confident driving uphill on a narrow road! Otherwise you can come up by feet or I can arrange a transfer service for your luggages to the Lodge (upon availability).
In the Lodge you will find some touristic flyers and brochures about the area and the lake;

Falmenta village has no shops, only a trucks market comes with fresh goods on each Thursday afternoon; you will always find supermarkets, shops and restaurants in Cannobina town on the lake (10km away).


L’ambiente circostante confinante con il Parco Nazionale della Val Grande (l’area wilderness più grande d’Italia) offre natura selvaggia, senza strutture turistiche di massa, senza insediamenti industriali, senza agricoltura intensiva, senza strade di grande comunicazione: solo natura e aria pulita con torrenti e sentieri da scoprire.
Il Lodge si trova in frazione Casa Zanni, a 400 metri dal piccolo borgo rurale di Falmenta, un piccolo paesino montano immerso nel verde.
Un piccolo podere con antichi alberi da frutta, erba di campo e fiori profumati si estende di fianco al Lodge, per la delizia delle api di famiglia che producono un ottimo miele. Nessun tipo di concime chimico o trattamento viene utilizzato nello spirito wellness.

Attività in zona:
Passeggiate nei sentieri in zona (abbigliamento e calzature adeguate a percorsi in montagna). Possibili passeggiate tranquille sia andando verso la montagna (una piccola cascata a 20 minuti dal Lodge proseguendo verso la montagna) e passeggiata verso il centro di Falmenta (15 minuti dal Lodge).
Lago con spiaggie pubbliche a Cannobio (ca20 min in auto).
Per coloro che non hanno paura dell'acqua fredda, consiglio alcuni luoghi per fare il bagno nel torrente cannobino: Ponte Barro (20 min a piedi dal Lodge), Ponte Falmenta (5 min di auto e 10 minuti a piedi) e Orrido di Sant'Anna (15 min di auto e 5 min a piedi). Per coloro che non sono avvezzi ai sentieri di montagna, consiglio l'Orrido di Sant'Anna.

Ristoranti consigliati:
- Grotto Sant'Anna: location fantastica e ottima cucina e carta dei vini. Aperto solo nella stagione estiva, offre tavoli all'aperto. Cucina internazionale.
- Trattoria Cannobio: in centro a Cannobio, questa trattoria offre un'ottima cucina di lago.

Il paese di Falmenta ha un solo bar situato nella piazza principale del paese (seguite le indicazioni per la Chiesa di San Lorenzo).

I parcheggi più vicini si trovano a Falmenta (i parcheggi pubblici sono sempre gratuiti, in caso di mancanza di parcheggi liberi é inoltre possibile lasciare l’auto sulla strada verso Crealla, a pochi metri di distanza dal bivio per raggiungere Casa Zanni).
Il Lodge si trova a circa 400 metri dall’area di parcheggio, é possibile raggiungerlo in auto per scaricare i bagagli ma la strada é in salita stretta (in alcuni punti fino a 2 metri), non é comunque problematica se avete un’auto di piccole/medie dimensioni e/o se avete una buona capacità di guida). In alternativa é possibile raggiungere il Lodge a piedi o, secondo disponibilità e previa conferma, é possibile organizzare un trasporto bagagli dal parcheggio.

Il piccolo paese di Falmenta non ha negozi, solo il giovedì pomeriggio è presente nella piazza del paese un piccolo mercato ambulante con generi alimentari freschi; ogni tipo di negozio e alcuni supermercati sono presenti a Cannobio (13 km).
