Stunning mountain chalet
The Maison de Grand Maman is a farm house originally built in the 19th century and just recently converted into a stunning mountain chalet de charme, offering the option of reserving accommodation on Bed & Breakfast basis.Staying here will make you feel like travelling back into the past.The rich history and traditions of the inn will delight and enchant you, making you more than happy to call it “home” during your Champorcher stay.I have planned and restored the inn myself. You will find past style furniture, farm tools which used to belong to my grandparents, decorated and inlaid furniture; all this alongside with LED lighting and original larch wooden items. You will cherish the modern design being combined with the charming past style.You can decide to rent either the entire chalet or just one room; guided tours to the National Park of Mont Avic as well as to the Valle dell’Alleigne are available.
Herbs and flower in the plate
During the month of May surrounding the hamlet of Verana you can observe the extraordinary blooming of natural herbs and flowers.An old lady makes a list of 30 different natural herbs that in the past were used in the kitchen, some very know and sweetness as the spinach and the “bistorta”, others with a bitter taste as the echium and the “bardana”.During the month of May if you book in the bed and breakfast I will go with us through the hamlets of Verana, Ecreux and Outreleve discovering and identifying the herbs and flowers. You could also have a dinner in a typical nice reastaurant “La Louye de la Gomba” in the Crest village where you can taste the delicious herbs.

Over winter full-moon week-ends I am available for short and quiet excursions with snow rackets by moonlight. Hiking up through the Mont Avic Natural Park up to the Muffe Lake, where you can have dinner at the local lodge; for those who are more expert there is the opportunity to keep hiking, up to the Col de la Croix and from there enjoy the stunning view over the Monte Rosa chain, the Matterhorn and the Champorcher valley, all lit only by moonlight.
New Year’s Eve at the Muffe Lake
Guided excursion in the afternoon with snow rackets up to the Col de la Croix, where you can fully enjoy the sunset over the Monte Rosa, the Matterhorn and the Champorcher valley; afterwards hiking back to the lodge by the Muffe Lake to celebrate the coming new year.
