On a clear day, we can enjoy the view of the glaciers of the Ortles-Cevedale mountain range, through our chalet’s glass front in the distance.
On its north side a steep slope rises up, giving our farm its name. Costes means grass or mountain slope in Ladin, the local language.
To the south, a little river runs past the farm and off into the forest, which starts its gradual ascent up toward Seceda (2500m), Cuca, Pic and Sëurasas further east.
Ours is a self-sufficient farm with an independent water supply, and live on and run the farm all year round.
Mountainous Still and Spaciousness
The site itself is quite remote. Nothing but sky and mountains; the trees, the slopes, the mountain meadows.
The farm is accessible via a forest path in summer, or in winter by foot (15-20 mins) or skis.
Nonetheless, the village with whatever you might need is just down the road, and to go hiking, mountaineering or skiing you can set off straight from Maso Costes.
