The Valle dell’Orco, dark and almost gloomy, transforms itself into the gate of heaven when you pass over the long gallery getting to Ceresole Reale. This wide and amazing valley has been the theatre of our tests on shoes, hiking sticks, backpack and belts: here is our base, the Rifugio Massimo Mila. With an altitude of 1583 metres, it is situated in a wonderful position, on the bank of Ceresole Lake, at the foot of charming mounts, in the Gran Paradiso National Park.
Provided with 6 rooms and 25 beds, it gives comfort to all mountain lovers thanks to its dining room and its lounge bar with a library and relax zone. The cherry on top is the home-made cookery which combines quality, tradition and creativity in addition to the sophisticated local products like mountain cheeses, stone ground flours and wines made from local vineyards.
The managers, Andrea, Stefano and Marlene will delight your stay and are available to give you advice about the hikes and every activity in the Park, from snowshoes walking to ski mountain-climbing or bird watching.
In the refuge you can find all kinds of guides, from climbing to trekking: that’s why Massimo Mila is the perfect base for sport lovers! You can also practice water sports and in fact the Gran Paradiso Nautical Society will be created on 7 July. The Rifugio Massimo Mila is open all the year; it is easy to reach by car and ideal for spending amazing holidays with the family and children.
The mangers also offer a wide selection of courses (you can learn more on their website) and the PALAMILA (a wooden shell next to the refuge) proposes a lot of cultural initiatives like concerts, theatrical shows, exhibitions and much more.
