WHO WE ARE
Hospitality is a family tradition and the best way to be part of that tradition is to make you feel at home.
OUR FAMILY ORIGINATED IN THIS VALLEY, WHICH WE HOPE YOU WILL LOVE AS MUCH AS WE DO
Tarcisio, the father: mountain guide, ski instructor, ultra-trail runner, sculptor and woodturner. Beekeeping and cultivating small fruits are two of his many tasks.
Rosanna, the mother: art and craft enthusiast, she also cares for the beautiful flowers that adorn our garden.
Chiara and Valeria: fourth generation of the family and now running Maison du Tatà; different but both with guest care as their priority.
A CENTURY-OLD PASSION
Early twentieth century
Our great-grandfather Francesco welcomed the first tourists to Valtournenche by offering rooms to rent with bathroom on the landing.
Grandfather Mario converted part of the main house and created the first apartments with private bathrooms.
Father Tarcisio and mother Rosanna had the house and annex completely renovated to make everything cosier and welcoming. They also converted the area behind the house into a colourful garden for wild flowers and herbs.
We took over the management of the apartments in 2014 to continue an adventure that gives us enormous satisfaction each day.
A LOOK TOWARDS THE FUTURE
“Tatà” is a traditional Aosta Valley toy fashioned in wood by the expert hands of local craftsmen. Intentionally onomatopoeic, the name alludes to the clicking noise made by the wheels on the floor.
Quaintly old-fashioned toys from bygone times, symbols of an area that has evolved but continues to treat traditions with respect, i.e. us in a nutshell: we work with enthusiasm to welcome and assist our guest as though they were old friends and to project the authentic feeling of warmth and hospitality that is a distinctive feature of our facility.
Over the years we have cultivated acquaintances which have developed into friendships.
This is why we intend to personally take care of every detail in the services we provide.
Furnishings, books, amenities: everything around you exemplifies our desire to make you feel at home…the first place to which you wish to return.
