1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Fine mountain walking (take proper boots) in good summer weather with a bit of a breeze to take the edge off the heat at over 2000 metres; delightfully relaxed hospitality at Bella Baita at the start and end of each day. Fabrizio and Marla know and are well known in the area and gave us plenty of good tips about where to go and places to visit. There's lots to do without having to drive great distances.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Rent a small car with a bit of power to it so that it can get you up the hill to Bella Baita, but also navigate the serpentine mountain roads. Swap stories with your hosts and do one of their enjoyable cooking classes.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I felt this was a very low impact holiday. Great emphasis on shopping local - and why wouldn't you with a great market twice a week in Pinerolo? There's more wildlife to be seen in the area than in most parts of Italy these days, so someone must be doing things right in conservation - salamanders, marmots, wild goat and a good range of bird life in the mountains and forests. More nature than culture..

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Just what we needed, a relaxed week but with plenty to do. No stunning surprises, but a completely recommendable choice for people who are looking for an active holiday supported by some rather superior home comfort!

review 19 Dec 2012

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Gosh, difficult to say which part out of so many! I am reviewing the holiday five months later and still remember everything about our stay here. The delicious food and warm hospitality from the hosts, the beautiful scenery and the long walks will stay with me forever, I think.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Bringing a car would be best, but I'm sure carlessness would not be a problem.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes - fresh, local spring water and local produce.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

With the best rating possible.
