Valle dei Monzoni – Pozza di Fassa (TN)
Opening period :June 20th –September 20st 2017
The Taramelli’s Refuge is the only official “CAI-SAT’s” (Italian and local Alpine Associations) refuge in the area. The refuge is open every year during the summer season, starting from the third week of June until the third Sunday of September.
During the rest of the year the refuge offers “extraordinary” opening days which coincide with particular events or follow the booking requests of groups of at least 7 people which desire to stay in the refuge and receive an “Half Board” service.
During the summer season the Refuge offers on a daily basis bar, restaurant and accommodation services.
To spend a night in the refuge, given the limited number of available beds, it is advisable to book in advance communicating directly with the manager of the refuge (Nicola) at the following number : (+39) 360879719.
The refuge offers to its guest two types of dorms: one dorm, capable of hosting up to 10 people (5 bunk beds) and, a second smaller dorm which can host up to 3-4 people. Each bed comes with one pillow and bedcover but the guests have to bring his/her own sheets (or sleeping bag) as indicated from the CAI-SAT rules.
Moreover, we suggest our guests to bring with them a pair of slippers/flip-flops as the refuge is unable to offer them to its guests. Hot showers and the use of a washing machine are available to all our overnight guests.
Mobile Phone Coverage in the Refuge Area
TRE: Average if connected through the TIM line
WIND: Absent inside the refuge, weak in the area surrounding the refuge
These are Italian mobile companies, we suggest you to check the International roaming fare of your companies before coming to Italy, because it can be very expensive.
The refuge offers to its guest a free Wi-Fi connection through the FreeLuna network. In order to use the FreeLuna Wi-Fi network within the refuge, it is necessary to register yourself following the instruction provided by FreeLuna at the moment of the first connection. Unfortunately the password is send via SMS from FreeLuna to its users, and receiving the SMS containing the password might be problematic for users using certain network providers (see the “Mobile Phone Coverage in the Refuge Area” paragraph) and we therefore suggest to new users to register themselves with FreeLuna while still being in Pozza di Fassa.
