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

The views from the house were absolutely breathtaking. Sipping coffee on the balcony and soaking up the beauty of the mountains and the valley below was good for the soul.

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

A car is really essential and a good pair of walking shoes.

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

Yes.

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

Absolutely excellent. Best holiday we’ve had. A real authentic Italian village experience. One evening a group of locals had a sing song sitting outside their houses. Glorious melodies and harmonies drifting down the valley was an incredibly special experience. They even waved for us to come and join in!! The house is comfortable and very well equipped, with some nice homely featuressuch as board games. Even the sofa bed is comfortable! Easy to reach the stunning Lake Como, impressive waterfalls and St. Moritz.

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

Dream place - location and the view are just amazing. The house itself is a very nicely restored granite/wood house - very well done! Perfect infrastructure! Most memorable for me was the evening biking trip up from Chiavenna to Pianazzola... 300m altitude, 10 hairpin curves (if you count also the exit from the main Chiavenn-Maloja road).

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

There are many absolutely beautiful little roads up to alps and local valleys nearby (e.g. Val Bodengo, Olmo, Alpe Dalo, Sant' Antonio Albareda, Castasegna/Soglio/Maloja, Uschione and more) - fantastic biking! Maybe a bit steep, but great training, very low traffic and beautiful views.

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

Hard to say, but I suppose so.

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

One of the best places I have been - hope to come again.

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

We enjoyed being in a smaller town with less commercial activity. Pianazolla is certainly in a lovely part of the world.

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

It is important to understand that the house in Pianazolla is 20 minutes from Chiavenna by car. It is a very steep drive and for those not used to mountain driving it can be pretty scary. We were disappointed that it took more than an hour to get to the ski resort from the house. In the advertisement it is suggested that it is 20 minutes away. This is certainly not the case.

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

Our holiday with our family was very enjoyable. The house was clean and well maintained with mostly good facilities.
