A genuine alternative

The idea from which Krene first surfaced in 2006 was simple, but seriously ambitious: to salvage a clutch of Alpine dwellings located in an environment still untouched by today’s anthropogenic pollution, at the same time respecting their typological conceit. So far so good.

But what exactly do we mean by “typological”?
The people behind this particular project have defined the concept as the sum total of efforts made in a given time and place and with all means in one’s possession to endeavour to “live well”. Phew. Once completed back in 2006, the restoration projects on the dwellings assimilated within the place where they were originally constructed near Dalò, San Giacomo Filippo – immediately displayed their particularly sympathetic nature. And so it was that in 2013 sprang into being; a website on which it was remarkably simple to book a stay in any of these attractive residences. Projections of early and positive feedback were somewhat circumspect. And yet the experience of a well-earned break, at 1250m, in a superb location in the Central Alpine arc overlooking Valchiavenna, in a natural yet “quasi-urban” spot within reach of all services and amenities, was to prove a remarkable success story. All this, yet having involved a promotion in decidedly “under the radar” mode. American, Italian and other European tourists began to book holiday stays in the homes that Krene were able to extol by simply highlighting the engaging consonance of detail, and the originality of every single element. Krene Holidays is aimed at those amongst us who are not looking to spend a “glamorous” sojourn in a fashionable resort, where the overriding philosophy is that of “spend and demand”, but prefer instead a somewhat original formula which guarantees a more authentic experience all round. Krene’s proposition is not only proving the genuine article in San Giacomo Filippo, but is being replicated in other locations, with similar projects under way in Puglia and Iceland.
