This week we found that special something, a little corner of paradise in the Italian Alps, not far from Lake Majeur...
Imagine a little plateau, at 1700 meters. To get there, is a ten kilometer narrow road which climbs along cliffs and impressive drops. Bends follow tunnels and finally, we come back to the light : you are at Alpe Devero !
End of the road, no cars anymore... We are walking on snow through
the village, surrounded by beautiful small houses ; bricklayers and carpenters have been using granite and larch wood for generations as we see in all the architecture. The ambiance is peaceful and it’s good to be immersed in the Italian language.
After lunch, we put on skins again, to continue to another hamlet named Crampiolo. Located at less than one hour from Alpe Devero, Crampiolo is only accessible by walking or skinning.
