We just left after a stay of 3 nights. Solange, the host, made us feel most welcome. It was nice sharing with the other guests food that is fresh, homemade, bio and Solange willing to go the extra effort to make it vegetarian for us. The whole environment, the garden, the view of Piana, the mountains, the proximity of the... More

The location of Giargalo is gorgeous, especially when we arrived, as the sun was setting. We only stayed for one night but Madame Francois was very friendly and spoke French slowly, which was helpful and allowed us to practice. The dinner was the highlight - a multi-course meal at a loooong community table with endless carafes of vin rouge and... More

This a fun, slightly alternative, B&B offering excellent food and friendly hospitality. Our room was a little small and dark, but there were plently of communial spots to spread out. The wine as dinner was unlimited and we had some great chats with fellow guests.

The pacle is definitely nice, professionnal, but... extremely simple, without any charm. So, if you are a hiker, thats perfect, if you are honeymooner, definitely not! bathroom outside at the bottom and bedrooms... More

This gite is found in the lovely village of Piana. It was a rather unusual setup in my opinion, rather like a college dorm as it was a large building with a wide hall on the second and third floors with rooms on each side and the toilet down the hall. The shower stalls were on the bottom floor next... More
