Nested at 950 m between the sweet Langhe hills and the solemn Maritime Alps, Hotel Miramonti more than a hotel is a “ buen retiro “, a retreat where guests can recover, taste gourmet cuisine and establish a sincere relationship with nature.
Mount Moro keeps a loving eye on it, like a good giant. Fairies, elves and goblins protect it from the spirits of snow and fire. Hotel Miramonti has grown up, earning the respect of both the mountains and their inhabitants . Its brick structure , completely covered with wood and stone , is respectful of the environment and of the local customs and lives symbiotically with the surrounding landscape. In 1961 Giovanni and Modesta Defilippi sold their entire flock to devote themselves to the newly developping touristic activity of the valley. They built in fact a prestigious hotel where today the third generation is still in charge and carries forward the family tradition.
Hotel Miramonti dominates the valley of Frabosa Soprana from its most panoramic viewpoint, between the blue sky and the Maritime Alps, last buttress of the western Italian Alps marking the border between the regions Piemonte and Liguria.
Miramonti is a retreat not only for guests refraining from the metropolitan chaos , but also for people loving “good “ and genuine traditions. Such as fresh linen sheets, home made bread and pasta, and furniture seeming out of grandma ‘s attic.
The whole family is involved in managing the hotel and in offering a warm and informal reception. Nando Defilippi is responsible to select the best local foodstuffs for the new Chef Restaurant “Ezzelino”, to get aged cheese from the Alpine pastures, to season the cured meats, which are home made together with jams and preserves. Albina, Nando’s wife, looks after the reception, gracefully keeping the delicate balance between spontaneity and privacy. Paola, Nando ‘s sister, has been passionately managing the hotel for more than thirty years, promoting it as the ideal location for congress tourism especially oriented towards residential and experience-based seminars.
Uncle Beppe, Nando’s brother, takes care of the vegetables grown in the botanical garden of the hotel as well as of the blueberries, mushrooms and chestnuts coming from the woods of the green valley. Last but not least the two brothers Luca and Domenico Defilippi, Nando ‘s and Albina’s sons, are responsible for marketing and customer reception, continuing with passion and fantasy the family history and commitment in managing the Miramonti Hotel. This family approach coupled with a superb location and the attention to all the small est details make this hotel a little paradise ideal for families with children, for excursions and mountain bike lovers as well as for groups of friends looking for good food.
The peaceful silence of the woods and the appeal of the private park extending for more than 10.000 m2 infuse into the guests a deep feeling of well-being, enhanced by the exclusive experience of the brand new Mspa. This well-being path devoted to relaxation and body treatments includes wood sauna, steam bath, traditional Finnish sauna, an Alpine Water trail and the M Lounge with its large windows from which you get an unforgettable view over the ski slopes of Mount Moro.
48 rooms equipped with furniture made of local larch wood and warm quilts secure a good night’s sleep. The additional room facilities, private lounge , direct dial telephone, colour TV and balcony with panoramic view invite to spend moments of pure relaxation in the company of the loved ones.
Thanks to the wi-fi coverage throughout the hotel businessmen and “forced laborers” can stay connected to the world even if they are in the intimacy of a warm mountain retreat.
