  • Contact us to arrange to be picked up for a reasonable price.
  • Rent a car (see below for driving directions).
  • If you fly to any Milano airport you can take the bus or train to Milano Centrale and take a train from there.

Closest Train Station: Ivrea, from where we can arrange for pickup. Alternatively you can travel to Santhia, from where we can also arrange  for pickup.

Driving Directions: 

  • GPS coordinates: 45°27’30” N 7°48’9″ E
  • Google Maps: Just enter ‘Matva Sei’ in the google maps app. Fairly accurate, but the road ends about 500 meters prematurely on the map. If you continue down the same road and keep right it will take you to our gate.

Driving Directions from Milano Malpensa:

Drive towards Torino for about 1 hour. Take the exit (“uscita”) towards Aosta, and then to Ivrea. The toll-gate is ca 10 euro, self service. Keep right towards Ivrea.

At the first roundabout keep following signs to Ivrea. At the second roundabout start following signs towards Lessolo. You will now pass through many roundabouts and straight stretches, continue to follow Lessolo. When you arrive at Lessolo village, keep left on the first junction, and drive through the old town while following signs towards Valchiusella (keep right). Then follow the long winding road up the hill, while passing some stunning viewpoints.

Blue signs

After a particularly sharp bend you will see a big blue sign (see picture) with many names on it to the left, and a sign with “Truc del Dur” on the right side of the road.

Turn left onto a very narrow road. After just about 50 meters, keep left at the fork, and take the road down to the yellow house. This will take you to a very sharp bend, for which you need to reverse a bit in order to continue down the small road, that will now be unpaved. Keep right on the next junction and keep going until you see the entrance of Matva Sei! The gate is not locked, though is seems like it. Just open it and drive in to our parking space.

Drive towards Torino. Follow the indications to Torino for some minutes on the highway (no tollgate). Take exit, Uscita 3 to the right towards Gran Paradiso, Ivrea, Aosta. You are now off the highway.
