“A Very Different Experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2008

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 to the kitchen and the outdoor eating area. The owners were very nice, there were six employees that I could see including two Chinese girls to serve the dinner (extra charge) and a gardener. They have a huge garden there and we were served really lovely salads using the ingredients from it. There is no a/c, no wifi, no elevators but having dinner and breakfast there was a wonderful experience. There was a mixup with the rooms for us as four adults were all put into one room instead of the two we requested. They put the other couple into a hotel down in the village.

  • Liked — The garden and the dinner
  • Disliked — The toilet down the hall, showers on lower level
  • Stayed June 2008, traveled with family
