    Pierre Gilliavod was born in 1540, whit him begins the family tree that our guests can find in the basement of the hotel.

    Pierre Aymon Gilliavod was born in 1699. Become a notary, he transcribed the births and deaths of all members of the family on a ledger. His portrayal is kept in the red living room.

    In 1743 the same name, Pierre Aymon, is given to the canonical Gilliavod who, at the end of the century thanks to the work of his predecessor, will conduct the first family tree on paper that has been restored in the 70's and is located on the third floor of the hotel. His ancient portrait is preserved next to the notary.

    In 1926 Celestino Gilliavod decided to turn the old family house into a hotel called "Hotel de Londres" in homage to the English-speaking clientele who began to attend the Gran Paradiso. Still today there are ancient furniture and trophies donated to Celestino by King Vittorio Emanuele III at the end of the hunting of August 29, 1906.

    In 1935, following the provisions of Mussolini government that claimed to Italianize all the names, the hotel became "Hotel Miramonti."

    In 1978 Giancarlo Gilliavod, son of Celestino, and his wife, Gianna, after a series of expansions occurred in previous decades, start a profound renewal making the old Miramonti a modern 4-star hotel.

    In 2011, after a long search of ancient materials, objects, furniture and textiles, has begun an important renovation which lasted over 2 years, the aim of which was to merge the nineteenth-century style with the needs of modern guests to mix roots and contemporary

    Today Stefano Gilliavod and his wife Ombretta, desiring to leave a deep trace just as generations before them, are characterized by a unique and original way of receiving offering a place where traditions, privacy and comfort combine innovation and contemporary, making a charming destination in order to convey the sensation of "feeling at home" with a touch of extravagance.

    Domenico, our restorer, deals with love of the conservation of works of art of the house keeping alive stucco, furniture, frescoes, feeding the wood with beeswax, rubbing iron and brass.
