Casa Al Frassen is closed, due to its inaccessibility following the damage caused by the flood in October 2018. For further information please contact the Park Authority.
In the year 2000, the Park purchased from ULSS 2 of Feltre over 700 hectares of meadows, woods, and rock faces in Val Canzoi. The estate goes from the 750 meters of the bottom of the valley to the 2,547 meters of Sass de Mura, the highest summit of Cimonega group.
Within the estate, one of the most valuable areas of the Park for its landscape and environment, there is the lodge "Al Frassen": a three-storey house dating back to the first half of the 20th century. After the purchase, the Park renovated the building and transformed it into a guest house for hikers and an environmental education center dedicated to groups of students, organized groups, and associations.
This building, like all the other ones built or renovated by the Park, has been recovered thanks to the "Fossil Free" project, according to which only renewable energy sources should be used within the protected area. For this reason, the electric energy necessary in the guest house is produced by photovoltaic solar panels placed on the roof and by a generator working with bio-diesel; the heating system works thanks to a biomass boiler.
The Park's lodge offers 22 beds, divided into 3 rooms (two of them have 5 beds, while the other has 12 single beds and/or bunk beds), an equipped kitchen, a small classroom for educational activities, a large dining room with fireplace, and toilets.
The essential equipment of Casa al Frassen includes:
- Gas and wood-burning stove, with dishes and accessories;
- Single beds or bunk beds with mattress, pillow, and blanket;
- Toilets with shower;
- Not drinkable water (cold and hot).
