Casa Ferdinand

Personality, light and nothing obvious

A holiday home with the taste of wood, originality and pastis

Casa Ferdinand is an open space of 60 m2 that used to be a storage for hay and firewood. Suitable for a single traveller, for two persons or for a couple with child, it consists of an entrance, bathroom with shower, kitchen, living room and sleeping quarters on a small entresol.

A large glass door leads to the balcony with mountain view where you can have breakfast and other meals. The eccentric location of the apartment, hanging right above a pedestrians’ passageway, is reflected in the interior by a combination of steel, wood, stone, design chairs, a liberty buffet, and an orange fridge.  

A spectacular view of the higher Varaita Valley, the aroma of wood, a romantic entresol and an unusual combination of furniture are the real perks of Casa Ferdinand, which is a summary of mountain life as it was, as it is and as it could be.

Formerly, Casa Ferdinand was a wooden room covering the pedestrians’ passageway where cows, sheep and people passed. This eccentric, hanging position of the house immediately reminded us of the writing of Ferdinand Céline, of the marginal places and uncommon people that this French writer chose as his vocation. Of his humanity hidden under the bark of the surly genius, his rejection of whatever rhetoric, to which Casa Ferdinand pays tribute with a mixture of tradition, articulated spaces, and combinations that are never obvious.
