The Maison de Neige resort used to be an old military barracks built at the beginning of the 1900s. It was devised by the Army Corps of Engineers as a warehouse for arms and ammunitions used by the border guards stationed on the Little St. Bernard Pass.
During World War II, it became the command center for all military operations carried out on the Cottian and Graian Alps. At the end of the war, it was used as an outpost for the Custom Authority responsible for carrying out police checks at the border.
After a period of neglect, our company bought the building and transformed it into a 4-star hotel, mindful of keeping the original shape and architectural details that characterise it.
The only addition is the veranda that houses the restaurant. The materials, which include stone and wood, and the building techniques used during the restoration are environmentally friendly and respect the surrounding area.
Inside, the areas have been completely renovated while maintaining the simplicity of the orthogonal lines.
