Carestia mountain hut nestled in the valley of Rissuolo, in the beautiful Valle Vogna, on the road to Corno Bianco, the Carestia was founded in 1995 substituting a previous refuge that has become too dangerous to be used. It is dedicated to Antonio Carestia from Riva, a botanist-Alpinist, famous world-wide, who was very fond of this valley.
It has a bar-restaurant, communal bathrooms and showers, electric lighting and sleeps 30. The refuge is the ideal place for a quiet getaway in an Alpine environment far from stress. It also has a winter shelter in the basement to host 4 people. The entrance is via an opening near the front door of the refuge.
