Feel at home on holiday
When we were planning our 5 chalets, we wanted our guests to feel at home. We really think we’ve achieved this aim, thanks to the welcoming ambience, enhanced and made warm by the prevalent use of wood and underfloor heating; due also to the general spaciousness and the presence of household appliances that are essential nowadays (microwave, dishwasher and washing machine), as well as the privacy enjoyed by our guests made possible by the layout of the various chalets.
In contact with nature
Those who come to the mountains and choose the campsite are often looking for a more direct contact with nature. This is why all our chalets are single storey and look out over a field, which is ideal for sunbathing, for children’s games, or for sitting at the picnic table eating a mixed grill prepared on one of the barbeques available for guests. All this is set against the magnificent backdrop of Monte Rosa and the other peaks surrounding the site.
Why we named our chalets after the 5 elements
According to the five elements theory, the individual and his/her surrounding environment are continuously changing as they follow the eternal cycles. The continual changes in these cycles are part of nature and contribute to maintaining the equilibrium. The same applies for the body: cells grow and then die, leaving space for new cells. Living beings depend on these cycles, which involve the mind, the body and the spirit and influence health and the energy flows which alternate during a lifetime. We decided to give our five chalets the names of the five elements of the Chinese horoscope (Water, Metal, Fire, Earth and Wood) because the mountains are the main place for observing these changes in nature and to appraise the benefits for our bodies. The seasons are the first external example of the 5 forces which alternate cyclically on nature; in the winter (water), the life force withdraws into itself, in spring (wood) everything begins to grow, in summer (fire) everything flowers and in late summer (earth) everything matures and comes to fruition; in autumn (metal) the forces return to the earth. Each element is generated by another, which in turn generates the next, just as Spring arrives after a period of winter rest and the explosion of its generating force announces the arrival of Summer.

MARGHERITA CAMPSITE AND RESORT – SERVICES FOR THE DISABLED
THIS CAMPSITE REALLY IS FOR EVERYONE: NO MORE LIMITS
Since the summer of 2005 Margherita has become accessible to all. For our differently-abled guests there are now three dedicated car parks, a lift to the services situated on the first floor (Reception and meeting room) and 2 equipped rest rooms (one complete with shower). The camp sites are also all on level ground and are easily accessible.
We also thought about our differently-abled customers when we enlarged the facilities. Two of the newly constructed chalets are completely accessible and are provided with equipped bathrooms and ante-bathrooms. The same goes for the bathroom at the Wellness Centre and new Bar, which can be accessed by ramp.
The campsite provides its guests with a shuttle service to and from the ski lifts in the Monterosa ski area.
