Incredible views and amazing villa
We stayed for 4 nights (I wished we had stayed much longer) at this villa in the Dolomites. There is a reason the Dolomites are UNESCO world heritage site. They are incredibly awe-inspiring. And staying at this amazing villa really created the perfect trip for me and my family. Every room in the villa (bedrooms and living rooms) have either a balcony or a direct access to the gardens, with views of the mountains galore. The house has everything -- the kitchen is very well stocked, the living room is very warm and comfortable, and the bedrooms are all suites and very roomy, quiet, and cozy.
Wow how amazing to have such appreciation... Our pleasure - see you again soon
Amazing, Perfect villa !!
It was breathtaking, amazing!!
The house is almost perfect with any parameter.
The location is perfect, it was very clean and well equipped.
Communication wis Annie easy and helpful.
The only thing to improve is the internet signal..mainly for the kids.
Greatly appreciated, and truly very happy you had a great time...
Another fantastic holiday in the fabulous Pinaid
Villa Pinaid is one of the most comfortable houses we have ever stayed in - it really feels like a home but one you are lucky enough to live in rather than camping out in someone else’s & the perfect place for a large gang to gather. Beds are brilliantly comfortable, the kitchen is really well equipped & the whole house has a well thought out layout. We ski when we are here which is a bit of a drive each morning but just becomes part of the day. Amazing views and splendid isolation. We will be back!
Great place to stay a week in peaceful surroundings
Our group from Australia loved this place. It is big enough to have 10 people. Well equipped kitchen. Large range of DVDs and books. Wonderful views. 15 mins drive to chairlifts taking you to the top of the world. We thought it was better than the photos.
Very nice house with great views, roomy and comfortable.
The house is situated near the end of a narrow road going up from the small village of St. Peter. There are three stories with several nice bedrooms and bathrooms and a large common room and kitchen. The place is very well equipped and the views are spectacular. WiFi is ok (a bit weak). Its a great base for trips in the area. What is missing: there are no large external play areas (court or garden, and not many internal play facilities (e.g., pool or table tennis). So there is not much to do for younger kids. On site help and advice you can get from Annie the housekeeper which is very nice and helpful, but speaks almost no english - if you are not fluent in either German or Italian, you need to take this into account. Overall a very pleasant stay.
Could not have been better.
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.
Really appreciate the review, and the kind words...
Hope to see you again soon...
