“What a gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

There is a reason that this place has such impeccable reviews, it's amazing! We stayed here for five nights at the end of July and wished that we stayed longer. The hosts, the food, the view, everything was beyond what we could have ever hoped for at any price, but especially at 55 euros/double. We felt as we have were visiting good friends in Italy. Not only that, but we had a wonderful time discovering all the gems tucked away in Chizone and Susa valley as well as Saluzzo and Manta castle - most impressive frescoes inside of that one. We decided to do a "Market to table" class and are we glad we did! It was so much fun, not to mention the meal afterwards, which was delicious. Stay here if you want to experience the real hospitality and the real Italy without the hordes of Rick Steves' fans :)

Nice room, beautiful surroundings, great walks, and the tastiest food! What more could you want? Thanks to the two great hosts, I hope I'll be back.

That was the most important stuff, but I have 200 words to fill. We drove up from Turin airport which was quick and easy, although the last bit is a narrow mountain road. Lacking a car would be more difficult, but should be no obstacle to staying here! Welcomed with a glass of iced tea, we were then recommended a place to lunch by the owners (Osteria Setteponti), from where we walked down to the river and had a paddle in the mountain water. The next day we went on one of the walks that leave right from the hotel door up to the Cucetto peak, which was an enjoyable baptism to the area. Our final day was spent walking around the “13 Laghi”, a collection of lakes which we reached by chairlift from Prali. This was unforgettable, not least because of the sunburn!

Twice we ate with the hosts, and each time they laid on course upon course of delightful food. Our fellow guests were a pleasure to dine with also.

Just wonderful.

Bella Baita is a wonderful B and B, with lovely views and the most fantastic chef and teacher! We had a wonderful day with Marla at the markets and then preparing food. Marla, an excellent and flexible chef, carefully picked a personalised menu for us to learn and it was Fabulous! Thank you so much!! A great experience and place to stay (I even slept in the same room as John Malkovich once did!)

I had a recent opportunity to stay at Bella Biata with friends. The ambiance is casual, the views wonderful, the rooms private and comfortable. The food is fresh, locally produced, and prepared with obvious love. We had brought wine from France but were happy to leave it unopened in favor of the local wines recommended by Fabrizio and Marla.

If you are ever anywhere near Bella Biata, don't miss this wonderfully unique experience.

Room Tip: There are only 5 or so double rooms. Ours was essentially identical to our friends' room. Room...

We were a party of 4 traveling from the south of France to the Turin area and found Bella Baita B & B quite by accident. And we were so glad we did! Marla & Fabrizio are wonderful hosts (Marla is from America & Fabrizio is Italian & speaks English), very friendly & helpful, and they can cook amazing food. It is an intimate place, and the hosts partner with local producers to bring back amazing products. We purchased local wine & honey - all delicious! Since we were only there for one night, we unfortunately could not take their cooking class or village tour..but we certainly hope to return soon to be able to do so! The drive up the mountain was worth every minute we spent enjoying our short time at Bella Baita Bed & Breakfast! Contact them at info {at} bellabaita {dot} com for reservations.

We stayed with Fabrizio and Marla for 5 days and had the most amazing time. They are wonderful hosts recommending mountain walks(the walking is as good as any in the Alps) and days out- Filling us in on the history of the region which we were not able to understand in Italian. This is an undiscovered corner of Italy with so much to offer-scenery, history, walking, wine, food and much more.
We did a cooking afternoon when we prepared our evening meal making bread and pasta amongst other things. We learned a lot about the wines of the area and of course brought some home to taste! Everything is home made-Marla makes all the bread for example
The weather was wonderful and the views sublime.
We will be going back to do some wine tasting, cheese making and chocolate making.
They are relaxing and good humoured hosts.
Chiao!

My husband and I have stayed at many B&B's all over the world, and no where have we ever been made to feel more like family from the moment we arrived than at Bella Baita. Bella Baita is a very special experience, not just a room or a night. For the owners, a husband and wife team, Bella Baita is clearly a labor of love, and they have have put all of their considerable talents and energies into making every aspect of every guest's stay memorable. Marla is a professional pastry chef, which shows in the food she creates. Marla is originally form the US, but she has made it her mission to spread the word about the beauty and natural resources of the valley where Bella Baita is located. She directed us to local hiking trails to waterfalls, with cows and goats (with bells around their necks!) and butterflies everywhere - about as bucolic as you might imagine the Alps to be! Casual but delicious meals (breakfast and dinner) are shared with the owners and any other guests in a lovely dining room just off the kitchen, contributing to the feeling of family one has when staying here. A wonderful experience we won't ever forget (in a good way!).
