Just next to Limone is Limonetto and on the slopes of Limonetto there is a very unusual place to stay: the Arrucador. Accessible by snowmobile only in the winter (they come and get you from the carpark below), and with only four bedrooms, it is absolutely wonderful! The owners opened the hotel last year, I believe, as it is all pretty brand new. The rooms are charming, the food delicious and the owners could not be more helpful (or speak more languages!). For a real break from the life in the city, this is the best. There is a very good steam bath for tired muscles and, of course, you can ski from the door. Only disadvantage for us (but perhaps not for you): no dogs allowed.
In the spring and summer the walks here are fantastic, and if you feel the lure of the city, Limone village is charming with good shops and restaurants.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our small hotel is a traditional alpine lodge in the mountains of Limonetto, Maritime Alps, located at 1500 mts. a. s. l. directly on the Italian/French border; it's managed by family Merolt since 2003. It has a restaurant where you have breakfast and enjoy dinner in front of the fireplace, a big solar terrace, 3 double rooms and a three-beds room (mini-suite) equipped with shower, toilet, telephone, WI-FI. The hut has been completely rebuilt in 2003 using stone, wood, lime and iron, mixing tradition and modernity, respecting the typical local architecture. It's a small relaxing corner, a well kept hidden secret for your holiday with steam room (Turkish bath), aroma and music therapy. In winter, access is by ski down the slopes of Limonetto or with the snowmobile service, while in summer the hotel can be reached by trekking trails or 4WD road.
