Epic Europe


San Lorenzo di Sebato

When renovating the historically and architecturally valuable “Unterramwaldhof“, a 16th century hunting lodge, Giorgia and Stefano Barbini took great care to respect the balance between tradition and innovation. In cooperation with the protection of monuments authority and with the support of local craftsmen they were able to renovate the estate in such a way that the original structure and its characteristic features were preserved: The entry hall’s vaulted ceiling is a rare example of the Alpine Renaissance style, the fine carving and inlaying of the massive antique doors are equally remarkable, and the original wooden beams, so steeped in history, still grace nearly every room.


With the exception of some carefully selected design pieces, all of the furnishings were custom built by local artisans according to the Barbini’s design. Stefano even crafted some of the individual furniture pieces himself. Using sublime fabrics and the finest of textiles in combination with a wide array of aesthetic details, the style-savvy couple created a retreat that immediately captivates each and every guest. An irresistible synthesis of absolute naturalness, authentic craftsmanship, stylish charm, and understated elegance is discernable throughout the house.


Today, San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge is a unique luxury estate with a great deal of charm that accommodates up to a maximum of ten guests and may be rented only in its entirety. On the main floor, three ample living areas provide plenty of space and freedom. On the upper floor, there is a beautifully arranged lounge with fireplace and 4 bedrooms, three double suites and one room with two bunk beds.


The compact yet exquisite spa upstairs offers a Finnish sauna – designed and handcrafted by Stefano from 200-year-old wood sourced from a neighboring farm – a Turkish bath, a spacious whirlpool, and an experience shower clad in warm natural stone. In addition, an experienced therapist and wellness coach is made available upon request.

  • "Hiking in the Alps has always been on my bucket list, but I wasn't sure that a typical trip was my style. Epic Europe designed a custom route for our group, staying in the best little inns and hotels, and we felt like we had the trails to ourselves. I will come back again and again to explore new trails with their guides every year that I can!" - R.B., NY USA
  • "Our family spent last Christmas in Zermatt on a bespoke Epic Europe ski trip. The special thought and care that they put into our holiday made it our best yet." - L.M.; CA USA
  • "Epic Europe has coordinated several corporate events for us over the past 5 years, and I cannot imagine a more professional operation to handle all of the details. From a team-building event for 50 people in a 17th-century castle atop a mountain pass, to marketing conferences and catalog shoots, their knowledge of the best locations in the Alps is second-to-none, and they are as good as it gets at being creative." - E.P., Lugano CH
  • "Epic Europe's custom road biking trip that they put together for my buddy's bachelor party was great - the right combination of killer rides, great hotels, and outstanding restaurants. Great guides, and overall a perfect trip." - A.S., London UK
  • “The team at Epic Europe created the most incredible trip for us, where everything came together seamlessly, and we never had to think about what came next - it just magically happened as if it was meant to be. That takes real talent, and they make it look easy." - B.N., WY USA
  • "I would have to say that Verbier and Zermatt might be the best places I have ever ridden a mountain bike, and I couldn't imagine going without the help of Epic Europe's guides. It was a dream trip for sure." - B.S., PA USA
  • "A day of heliskiing in Italy culminated with a sunset run off the Breuil saddle of the Matterhorn - one of the most thrilling runs of my life - and we left our tracks in a place where they remained for a week afterward, reminding us of the best day of skiing in our life!" - WG, CT USA
  • "I have done trips in the Alps and surrounding regions with Epic Europe for the past 4 years, and every one has been unique and surpassed the last. The experiences that they deliver due to their personal relationships are a window into the real life in these incredible locations, and they share these friendships with us." - K.B., CT USA
