About Roger Smith

Harmony, fun, relaxing great energy. We built this house from new, ten years ago, it is a great and relaxing place for summer and winter, you can enjoy the ski resorts and great walking in the area, and the village Ortisai has a great selection of shopping and resturents.

Roger Smith purchased this villa in 1998

Why Roger Smith chose Bolzano/South Tyrol

Its the best property that is over the clouds and the house is in the sun all day.

What makes this villa unique

Its the best, simple has that.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Sal booked Pinaid: 17-24 January 2016, via Airbnb, so we cut and paste his review: Words are not enough to describe this beautiful house, one have to see it to appreciate its beauty. As you walk into the front door, you are met with an amazing beautiful energy, so comforting and so tranquil. The house is very luxurious and comfortable in every sense. The kitchen and dining room area is well stocked with everything one can think of and the sitting room was spacious and beautifully cozy. Bedrooms are specious and the beds were comfortable. The whole house vibrated with warm positive energy. The balcony views from the bedrooms and dinning/sitting areas were amazing. Annie the house caretaker is only minutes away to all our inquiries (Thank you Annie for everything). Travelling by car to Val de Gardina is around 20 minutes and you are at the ski slopes. I would recommend this house to anyone who appreciates beauty, comfort and tranquility.

Could not have been better.

  • 5 of 5

The house, location, and views exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was superbly equipped and the attached balconies, where we often sat either drinking coffee or wine, offered ever changing views of the valley and mountains depending on the time of day. To fight off the evening chill we availed ourselves of the kachelofen in the living room. A great way to relax before going to bed. The narrow winding roads require caution and a willingness to stop and back up when meeting an oncoming vehicle at one of the blind curves. Not having access to the laundry could be a problem if you are planning to stay for longer than a week or so. We were two couples and, since the house has three floors, there was more than enough room for privacy. Bolzano, Merano, and the wine growing areas are within easy reach as is Trento, a real gem, for day trips. Do not miss Brixen or Neustift, which is located just a few kilometers from Brixen. Could not provide a higher recommendation for a group of people or large family who enjoy nature, do not mind a little driving, and welcome being far from the madding crowd.

Beautiful comfortable home with great views of Val Gardena

  • 4 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to Pinaid. What really draws us in is the kitchen.... amazing place to relax, eat, and share memories after a day on the slopes. All of the bedrooms are very luxurious and comfortable too. The living room is great too, although we didn't use it much. St. Peter has one great restaurant that is worth going to a few times, and the drive to skiing in Ortisei is only about 15 minutes.

A few things that could be improved:

- Wifi usually worked well, but some problems with it

- For such a modernized house, it's surprising to not have laundry facilities

- If it were my home there would be an outdoor hot tub somewhere looking out over the valley.

Will definitely return again one day soon to this beautiful house to enjoy the food, skiing, and people of Val Gardena.

Incredible property, definitely recommend.

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning villa, very well equipped, excellent kitchen and top quality bedding. Internet is so-so, TV's are old and have a blue colour and there's no access to washing machine for laundry which is frustrating, but in every other way it excels.

Idyllic retreat in the Dolomites

  • 5 of 5

A delightful and very comfortable house in a stunning location. It could not have been better. Ani the caretaker was excellent and the local shop very helpful. It was not easy to find initially but after that there were no problems. We highly recommend it.

A beautiful summer or winter ski lodge for all the year round HomeAway Holiday Renters.

Fresh Alpine Air and the Spectacle of the Dolomites Lajen/Laion, a sunny high-altitude terrace situated at 1,100 meters above sea-level, between vineyards and Alpine meadows, is an idyllic vacation spot with magnificent vistas. The panorama of the Dolomites, the Langkofel / Sasso Lungo, the Sella Group, and the Schlern/Sciliar will take your breath away. The number of hiking trails and look-out spots is countless. And Lajen/Laion also has an artistic aspect insofar as it is believed that the famous Middle High German ballad-singer Walther von der Vogelweide was born in the hamlet of Ried/Novale, on the Vogelweid farmstead.

Other Activities: Dolomites vast ski area, and recreational out door activities

Golf: The Challenges of the Dolomites Lajen/Laion and its subdivisions of St. Peter, Tschöfas/Ceves, Tanirz/Tanurza, Freins/Fraina, Ried/Novale, und Albions offer you complete relaxation and numerous excellent hiking trails. From here, you can quickly reach the Gröden Valley / Val Gardena and the Seiser Alm / Alpe di Siusi with their dolomite massives. Comfortable mid-altitude trails are also to be found in abundance, as well as 'Törggele' rustic inns and cable-supported climbing trails. Bicyclists and mountain bikers are likewise guaranteed vast opportunities to explore the landscape.

History & Culture around a Wonderful Panoramic Terrace

The 'mountain cathedral,' as the parish church of Lajen/Laion is often called, tells a story of a special vacation region. Archeological evidence uncovered on the Innerraschötz / Resciesa Alpine Meadow indicates that Lajen/Laion was settled during the Stone Age, in approx. 6000 B.C. The first traces of human habitation at the Wasserbühl date back to the Bronze Age. After that, evidence of historical inhabitants can be found. The most-famous of these is without a doubt Walter von der Vogelweide; you are free to hike to and view the Vogelweid farmstead! You now have almost unlimited access to the attractions of this region: With the Gardena Card, you have complete freedom to explore this exciting vacation resort area.

Ski: the nearest ski lift is around a 9 kilometer car ride to the village of Ortisei. This lift connects to the famous Sella Ronda which has 140 kilometers of connected ski runs.Alp de suisse also another beautiful resort connected to this village.The famous mens downhill runs from the next village Santa Christina, and further up the mountain you arrive in Selva the heart of Val Gardena.These ski resorts are all connected and will take you as far as San Cassiano.
