Payer general information









Introduction

Welcome to Vegotel Payer, located in a secluded corner in the Val Pellice. 5 km from the little town of Luserna San Giovanni, Vegotel Payer is an old stone farmhouse renovated following the ethics of bio-construction and using local and eco friendly materials. Surrounded by woodland, the B&B can be reached following a rustic track through the woods for about 1 km. The farmhouse is ideally located to explore the mountains of the upper Pellice Valley, the important sites of Waldensian history and the nearby valleys Po, Chisone and Queyras. A place where to reconnect with nature and with oneself. Ideal for hiking, nordic walking and mountain biking.
