The project

Locanda Margherita Bed and Breakfast is managed by Anita and Paolo.

Paolo is Valsesian and Anita is English. Paolo and Anita moved to Rassa in 2006. With the idea to create a small accommodation to offer hospitality to tourists and travelers in this small natural paradise in the heart of Valsesia, the house renovation work began.

Their main objective was to preserve and restore the property maintaining the original structure and style as much as possible, without neglecting comfort and adding a little bit of technology. Most of the restructuring work has been done by themselves and thanks to their creativity and meticulousness they have managed to create a harmonious mix between old and new, tradition and innovation.

Authentic larch wood floors, frescoed walls and ceilings dating back to the early 1900s have been restored but at the same time incorporate the facilities needed to make their guests stay comfortable. Locanda Margherita B&B opened its doors to the public in 2007.

When Anita and Paolo are not busy with the maintenance and improvement of their Bed and Breakfast you will find them enjoying life in the mountains hiking, climbing or skiing on the Monterosa. Paolo is a Mountain Guide with international qualification UIAGM and has shared his job with his clients for 25 years.
