Alpine in Parco Nazionale del Gran Paradiso

In a wood-panelled dining room with red curtains bunched at the windows, David and Elizabeth Allera keep Valdostan traditions alive, serving bowls of belly-filling seupetta á la cogneintze, a dish of rice and toasted bread slathered in fontina cheese. They also offer five well-priced chalet rooms (doubles €90 to €120).
