The Project

Resting, strolling, regenerating, eating, dreaming... Just thinking of this makes you want leave immediately for the "Albergo Diffuso Zoncolan", in the mountain region of Friuli.

We are in the heart of Carnia. The Albergo Diffuso, on the slopes of the eponymous and now famous mountain, makes available to those who stay in its land, its beautiful houses, proudly displaying its jewels. It is a new form of accommodation: restored barns, old stables, alpine houses with a past full of history that become independent rented lodgings, inserted in the architectural, historical and natural context of the places in which they are located. Distributed along the valleys, in perched hamlets or at the bottom of the valley, they make tourists feel part of the community that hosts them.

The Carnic tradition emerges in the smallest detail of the houses, each one different in appearance according to their village but having in common the love for small and simple things. Nests of wood and stone, characteristic chalets that combine the charm of the Carnic tradition with the comfort of modern alpine hospitality, offering the intimacy of a mountain home and the comfort of a hotel, allowing guests to manage their time with maximum freedom.

The location of the Albergo Diffuso Zoncolan lodgings allows you to enjoy all that the Friulian mountain has to offer during the year: from wine and food to historical and cultural itineraries, from winter sports to summer walks, from challenging activities at high altitude to those suitable for families. During the 365 days of the year, Carnia can satisfy the needs of both sporting and adventure seekers and those who want to immerse themselves in an oasis of peace and tranquillity.

A formula designed for families, sport enthusiasts, and curious travellers to spend an unforgettable holiday in a valley well worth discovering for its beauty, culture, tradition and authenticity.

Feeling at home among unusual scenarios, perceiving harmony in the balance between green and blue in the purity of the air that still smells of hay and wood; immersing yourself in the eternal atmosphere of the seasonal cycle marked by the blossoming of the many flowers and medicinal herbs and the falling of leaves; wandering in the white of the snowy peaks. Rediscovering the pure and simple religiosity expressed by the charming little churches hidden in the thick of the woods and the imposing churches that dominate the whole valley. Enjoying the mystical silence of the routes that lead away from mass circuits. Finding in the local gestures and language the signs of an ancient history, which is still alive.


And then you have the Zoncolan, the mountain that few knew and that is now a world myth, an icon of the Friulian mountain, the "Kaiser" for cyclists. "Here - it has been written - there is the singing arena for the black grouse, there is a universe of clouds and flowers, the ideal place for winged climbers".

This is a holiday to be experienced at a slow pace and with curiosity, like when walking through woods and along streams looking for beauty. And beauty you will certainly find, and you will always carry it in your eyes.

Lodgings
