An imaginative gift for your friends

Give your friends a personalized gift voucher entitling them to a relaxing evening in our restaurant, enjoying our hospitality and the authentic cuisine of the Aosta Valley. They can also arrange to spend the night at our inn.

The inn’s ancient tradition of hospitality began in the 12th century. Documents dating from 1140 mention the inn as a staging-post and place of refreshment for travellers crossing the Alps via the Great St. Bernard Pass, for whom it was a pleasant and secure refuge.

Maurizio Grange and Sevi Math have spared no expense on the inn’s facilities, continuing to offer travellers this agreeable sense of lodging in a very special place, characterized by a sincere and warm welcome and a sense of tradition. In exercising their professional skills, the staff are committed to making our guests feel at home.

The inn is an ideal setting for those wanting a quiet holiday and total relaxation, enjoying the sunshine and scent of the pine woods on the sun terrace. Nature lovers can explore the surrounding countryside by following the many woodland trails. It will also appeal to those attracted by a slower-paced way of life, devotees of first-class cuisine, and tourists wanting to discover the Aosta Valley and its historic capital, which is only 15 minutes away by car.

If you would like to stay at the inn (3-star category), we have 11 comfortable double rooms and 3 single rooms,  some of which have been decorated by a distinguished local artist, who also painted the decoration on the facade of the building housing the Inn itself. With decor and furnishings personally chosen and arranged by Sevi Math, each room has its own unique and distinctive atmosphere.

 

Each room has the conveniences you would expect of a 3-star establishment (private bathroom, hair-dryer, television, telephone, internet connection, etc.).

Guests can also make use of two attractive public areas: a reading room with open fire and a room where you can relax and play board games.

Further facilities include a sun terrace, an adjacent area of private woodland, plenty of open-air parking spaces, and garage accommodation.

 

There are three kinds of rooms:
 

 


Panorama
– category – six rooms overlooking the valley with its magnificent landscapes, for travellers wanting to recapture the adventurous spirit of the Grand Tour





Relax
– category – six rooms opening on to the adjacent pine woods. Their calm and intimate atmosphere enhances the feeling of being immersed in the natural world of the Aosta Valley.


 

 

 

 

Ambient – dcategory – two unique rooms specially designed to create a magical atmosphere, embellished with wall paintings and free-standing works of art.

 


 

 

For us at La Clusaz, the fact that we produce some of the foodstuffs we offer to our guests is a source of pride and satisfaction, as well as a genuine expression of the spirit of the Grange family, who have owned the inn since 1925 and have a long tradition of catering, hospitality and producing pork-meat products and cheeses.

Behind this labour lies a passion for organic produce and genuine flavours. The perpetuation of traditional production methods over many years has become a time-honoured rite, bringing great pleasure and a sense of purpose.

 

 

Our produce is limited in quantity but high on quality. The seasons dictate the tasks we engage in throughout the year and what we can produce at any given time.

 

When our pigs are butchered, we produce the salami, dry-cured ham and local black puddings which feature on our traditional menu.

 

We also make our own butter and a number of traditional local cheeses: fontina, the main ingredient in local soups, vapellenentse, cognentse and rebleque, a soft cheese which is also served as a dessert with cinnamon, rum and cane sugar.

 

You are welcome to visit our spectacular cellar, with its massive walls and stone vaulting. It houses a selection of over 220 wines to satisfy every taste and requirement. The restaurant takes great care in choosing and caring for its wines, which are perfectly in keeping with the quality of our cuisine.

Maurizio Grange and Sevi Math, who are both enthusiastic sommeliers, will be only too happy to help you choose the most suitable wines for your meal.

The wines on our list are arranged by type, for the sake of clarity and to help you in choosing the best wine to go with the menu you have chosen or to suit your personal preference.

Our cellar features many Italian wines, carefully selected from the various wine-growing regions, but also offers a wide choice of wines from other countries.

Special attention is paid to seeking out the best wines from the Aosta Valley region, produced by local wine-growers who also specialize in rare local grape varieties.

The composition of our wine list is dictated by considerations of quality, but also by the criterion of value for money. Some of our most interesting wines are sourced from small producers. We also take care to offer a number of wines of an exceptional standard, which are referred to as "hors classe".

To give you are a foretaste of our cellar

What makes us special, we believe, is the great importance each of us ascribes to team work and the enthusiasm with which we approach our task. The staff of “La Clusaz”, led and managed by Maurizio Grange and Sevi Math, together constitute the heart of the Inn/Restaurant.

The kitchen crew consists of four chefs, each specialized in preparing one of the four components of our menus: hors-d’oeuvre, entrée, main course and dessert. Maurizio Grange supervises and coordinates the work, and ensures that the various dishes complement one another. He is also a great connoisseur of cheeses, and this is very much his department.

The restaurant, on the other hand, is the domain of Sevi Math, who attends to the needs of our guests, organizes the work of our two waiters and maintains a delicately balanced relationship with the kitchen staff.
