Since I was a child I used to spend the most exciting moments of my childhood with my family at “Coler”. Even if it was a place where to work the land and to accommodate the cattle during several moments of the year.
In July the dance of pitchforks and rakes began: in the sweet-smelling farmstead the fragrant and tender grass became hay. Then, in autumn, the cattle was grazed and milked. While the larch yellowed outside, the pure white milk was transformed in the tender “casolet”. With a pipe in his mouth someone mixed the polenta, and, at the end of the day, we use to chat together around the fireplace.
The “Maso”, a wooden building on stone base plate, is typical of the local rural architecture. In the past Maso Coler used to include a barnyard and a stable for Grandparent’s cows, but now it’s a really special place where to spend a relaxing holiday in the nature. The Maso has been restored in spring 2012 according to climate house features and it offers the possibility to sleep there and have breakfast.
Breakfast consists of a rich buffet: homemade sweets, fresh bread with butter, jam, honey, yoghurt, muesli, milk, coffee, tea, cured pork meats and typical cheese.
For lunch it is possibile to eat outside in the Maso Coler’s pic-nic area, for dinner you can choose “Rifugio Fontanino”, a typical restaurant in the whereabouts. An evening at the “malga” is suggested: there you can taste the flavours of the past, such as “polenta and spezzatino” (polenta and culin stew), “tortei de patate” (potato-based traditional dish) and lots of dairy products. “Malga Stablasolo” and “Malga Fratte Bassa” are not far either. In the Valley there are a lot of other alpine huts where it is possible to eat. The kitchen of “Maso Coler” is available upon request.
Peaceful and surrounded by green meadows, Maso Coler has its own garden, solarium and a wide picnic area delimited by the wood and by a stream.
The wide, bright and extremely comfortable rooms have 2, 3 or 4 sleeping accommodation. Every room is warm, has a private batroom with shower and hair dryer, and it is equipped with TV, wardrobe, desk and hall stand. The view of meadows and woods gives tranquility thanks to the warmth of well furnished wooden rooms. Two bedrooms offer a refuge in the attic, where we can find a traditional mezzanine.
Surrounded by a lot of green and reachable via a private road, the structure dominates the rural landscape from its elevated position. Nature is here the undisputed winner; meadows, “masi” and soft slopes covered by trees, form an alpine paint of perfect harmony.
Maso Coler is a 3-floor building: on the ground floor we find a multipurpose room (breakfast room, relax room) and a kitchen; on the first and second floor there are three wide bedrooms. The familiar management ensures you the greatest warmth and helpfulness.
Multipurpose room; breakfast and relax.
The multipurpose tyrolean-furnished room has a fireplace and wooden walls, this room functions as breakfast room and relax room too.
The reception for the guest acceptance is a useful info point for everyone.
The affection for my land and the love for nature have persisted throughout my whole existence. I am so attached to “Maso Coler” that I decided to bring it back to life, by protecting its green areas and by breeding donkeys, sheep and lambs. I hope that “Maso Coler” could give you a unique experience in the heart of the Alps.
