Varaita valley is full of picturesque places, typical products and sport opportunities.

Estelo B&B is partner of Valle Varaita Trekking, a twelve-day itinerary including the whole valley; there are also shorter walks and circular routes from Frassino to the nearby villages of Rore, Melle and Becetto.

In the middle and upper valley you can enjoy several outdoor activities: there are Dayana’s riding stables in Venasca and sport facilities in Sampeyre and Pontechianale, as well as countless hikes in the Swiss stone pine forest called Alevé, toward Agnello pass or in the side valley of Bellino.

You can do cross country ski or Alpine ski, go hiking and trekking, have fun with road cycling or mountain-biking. The bravest ones can try the Adventure Trail in Frassino, rock and ice climbing, via ferratas, ski mountaineering.

Our territory features a great variety of sights and pleasures that suit all tastes and satisfy the five senses!

Some examples:

  • the typical Toumin dal Mel, a raw cow’s milk cheese, was “born” in the hamlet San Maurizio in Frassino. You can visit the ladies producing it, see how they work and taste the cheese; in the village of Melle in August there is a festival dedicated to this local product
  • Chianale, the last Italian village on the French border, has preserved its wonderful Alpine architecture
  • in Bellino valley you can admire several sundials, perfectly restored
  • from the hamlet Castello in Pontechianale you reach the Alevé forest
  • if you descend towards the lower valley, rich in chestnut woods, you can visit the Fabbrica dei Suoni, an interactive museum dedicated to sound and music, the famous Manta Castle with its 15th-century frescoes and the picturesque medieval town of Saluzzo

Guides, magazines and books with itineraries and tips are at your disposal in the B&B.
