Welcome to

S. Michele di Prazzo


The Albergo Diffuso, a term that can be roughly translated to mean “scattered hotel”, is located between the hamlets called Borgata Chiesa and Borgata Villa, in the High Maira Valley. Among all the valleys of the province of Cuneo, it is indisputably the most preserved valley, with its marvellous landscapes and the still unspoiled nature.

Roberta, the owner, and her family, will offer you many touristic experiences, the opportunity to taste unique wine and food and set off for an excursion in the surrounding mountains.

The name of their business comes from an ancient tale of the village, by which the inhabitants of San Michele are known as Grich…


In the heart of the hamlet called Borgata Chiesa, five cosy, fully equipped and renovated apartments will be the best solution for those who search for an independent holiday in complete autonomy.
If you wish to taste some local and traditional dish, you can order a take-away meal at the inn.


800 metres from the restaurant, in the heart of the hamlet called Borgata Villa, in an old and renovated barn, there are four rooms with ensuite bathroom.

Inside the building you may want to enjoy the peace of the relax room, sipping a tea or a drink, reading a book or surfing the Net so as to discover a new itinerary for your excursions.

Outside you will find a sunbathing area, a private parking and a garage to house your sports equipment.


Inside the historical building of San Michele di Prazzo, surrounded by the frescoes depicting King Vittorio Emanuele II, general La Marmora and Camillo Benso, count of Cavour, you can taste traditional Piedmontese and Occitan dishes.

Our inn favours authentic and fresh recipes, and carefully selects the local agricultural products in order to enhance the biodiversity of the Maira Valley.

Our culinary suggestions vary from fixed-price to tailor-made menus, and à la carte menus. Every dish can be enriched by a large selection of wine labels satisfying even the most demanding palates.
