Sorry Monia and Raffaele for the late review. Garni is over the top in customer service and attention!
My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights beginning of December at the opening of ski season in Roccarossa. We read all the comments on TripAdvisor and took the chance that it would be as good as the reviews reflected.
Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Monia, whose family owns and runs the small and oh so very cosy, Garni. With the help of her good friend Raffaele, we had simply the most wonderful hosts the entire time we were at Garni. The night we got there, she realized that some of the restaurants near the B&B were closed and she proceeded to provide a bottle of wine and food and snacks for us by the fire so that we would not go hungry. Unbelievably, the remainder of our stay was no different. There was no request too small to be taken care of by Monia and Raffaele. For example, we wanted to get to the ski hill one morning after a heavy snow, but realized our tires were not rated for the conditions. We asked Monia whether there was a bus or taxi and found out that there was one, but it would be expensive just for the two of us. Raffaele said he would be happy to take us and drove us the 20 minutes to the hill and came back for us when we finished!
I could go on with more examples of exceptional service and attention, but you will have to experience it for yourself. This is a newer B&B in Roccarosso with a small number of modern rooms and a small bar and lobby adjacent to the front desk. Breakfast is included and is a pastry lovers dream - oh I forgot to mention Monia also bakes all breads, cakes and pastries herself!
If you are looking for a super level of service, a comfortable room and a very warm family atmosphere you will not be disappointed. We cannot say enough nice things about Monia and Raffaele. They are absolutely amazing.
The main street was tiny, but Garni made this a very special part of our overall two week trip to Italy. A definite MUST visit!
