Our location

The National Park of Val Grande, the widest wilderness area in Italy, is a renowned tourist destination. Val Grande (Grand Valley) is a steep, harsh, wild territory enclosed between Val d’Ossola (Ossola Valley) and Piedmont western bank of Lake Maggiore.

We are located inside the National Park.
Corte Merina is named after the “corte” of which it is part, a small group of chalets about 200 metres outside Cicogna. The last 50 metres of the lane are not accessible to cars.

Cicogna – 800 metres above sea level – is a small hamlet of the municipality of Cossogno, in the province of Verbania.

To reach Cicogna you have to get close to the heart of the valley: the provincial road from Rovegro-San Bernardino Verbano climbs for 8 km, with impressive passages through a living-rock tunnel and on Casaletto Bridge overlooking Rio (torrent) Val Grande.

From Milan or Turin: follow Highway A26 Genova-Gravellona Toce, direction Gravellona Toce and exit at Baveno or Verbania, then follow indications for San Bernardino Verbano – Rovegro -Cicogna.
Alternatively, exit at Arona and follow state road SS 33 heading north along Lake Maggiore for about 30 km of a panoramic lakeside drive.

From western Switzerland, France and Germany: descend Simplon Pass and follow state road SS 33 southbound till Verbania.

From eastern Switzerland and Austria: head to Locarno (CH) and follow Lake Maggiore (state road SS 34) southbound till Verbania.
From Mont Blanc Tunnel: follow Highway A5 and A4 direction Milan, then head north on Highway A26 Genova–Gravellona Toce and exit at Baveno or Verbania.

From Cote d’Azur-Ventimiglia follow Highway A10 direction Genoa, then head north on Highway A26 Genova–Gravellona Toce and exit at Baveno or Verbania.

By train: Verbania-Fondotoce railway station is easily reached from Geneve, Milan and Turin.
There is a regular bus service to Verbania and to Rovegro.
