Marta's Monterosa Blog

I am passionate about the Alps. They are my heart's home and the place where I would like to spend the last day of my life. I have been a tourist in the village of Champoluc in the Italian Monterosa for all my life and worked as a tourist operator in this area since more than 15 years.

I believe in respect for the special environment of this place that you can find only here. We all gain by enjoying its beauty, while trying to make a minimum impact at the same time. Leave it for our children in the future!

I believe in respect for people who live here with their traditions and culture, language, and work, their genuine products and delicious wines. They open their homes for us, tourists and meet us as their guests, if we are able to open our hearts for them. I have a friend who is a hotel owner and he says that when stressed people from the city come to his place, he tells them to sit down and take a drink before they even begin to worry if they have a room. Perhaps, we can bring a little of their kindness and calmness with us on our way back to the city.

My philosophy is to give back a little of what the mountains and the people from this place have given to me and to my family through my work, to communicate my philosophy and my passion to those who follow me on the blog, and in my trips as a tour operator.

If you would like to visit Champoluc, Gressoney, Alagna or other villages in the Aosta Valley, trek or ski in the Monterosa, discover Sardinia or other places we offer, contact us.

In Summer 2017 it will be possible to get married at the highest refuge in Europe, Capanna Margherita at 4.554 meters

The Municipal of Alagna has recently approved a resolution which makes it possible to carry out civil weddings at Capanna Margherita in Monterosa.

Given the altitude and the following unstable weather conditions, the mayor of Alagna, Roberto Veggi has left nothing to chance, as he in the resolution includes the alternative to get married, on the lawn of a shepard’s hut at 1.575 meters. Still in the mountains, but far more accessible, also by foot.

The happy couples will be brought up to the Gnifetti Peak and the highest building in Europe by helicopter unless they are experienced mountaineers.
