Welcome to Bella Baita, our ‘beautiful mountain cabin” located in the, not so well known, Chisone river valley, also known as the Waldensen valleys. We are Marla and Fabrizio Roncaglia and live where his mother’s father and grandfather grew up nearby, and where Fabrizio’s parents, built our “off the beaten path” home. Bella Baita is situated in the stunning Cottian Alps of Turin province, which is part of Italy’s Piedmont region. We invite you enjoy the natural beauty, rich cultural history, myriad sports opportunities, Piedmonts exemplary beer, wine, and cuisine, that our area has to offer. We have various levels of walks just out our door, tranquil surroundings for relaxing and reading inside or out, with free WiFi, and also offer customized “Cooking Together” sessions.
