GUESTBOOK

  • Bernard from West Sussex

    9 to 14th February 2014

    Had a great week here in Pila.

    As a late starter to skiing, but hooked on the bug, I was looking for somewhere where I could practice and stretch my (albeit limited) skills.
    I found the slopes a great variety of gentle cruising and challenging steeps.

    And all thanks to David for showing me and other guests some of the latter!

    Jane, David and Maria are great hosts and nothing was too much trouble – ferrying us to lifts, town, restaurants etc.

    with the benefit slso of some grest home cooked meals.

    And I had the benefit of some wonderful company from other guests staying at the same time – both on the slopes and over meals and wine after a hectic day.

    Very much ‘home from home’.

    Will definitely visit again.

    Spent a week with a couple of friends and thoroughly enjoyed the week with Dave, Jane, Maria and Peluche. The mixture of ski tuition, free time, hospitality, excellent food and a couple of free evenings was perfect for us and we would highly recommend to anyone thinking of going on their own or as part of a group. The hospitality was very well organized as well as being very flexible.
    We will definitely be going again.

    The best-value ski trip we've been on in years, and the most enjoyable. Pila might not be the biggest resort, but it has a host of gorgeous, empty red runs that make you feel like you have the entire place to yourself. Jane, David and Maria were excellent tutors and even better hosts - we were looked after on and off the slopes. Would have no hesitation about recommending to all and sundry.

    We have just spent a fantastic week skiing with Jane, David and Maria. They really looked after us, from the delicious food, transfers to and from the lifts every day and the amount of time they spent on teaching. They are all BASI trained instructors, and the less experienced skiers in our group were able to have lots of individual tuition during the week – they improved so much and were confidently skiing down red runs by the end of the holiday. The snow was unbeatable, and Pila has a great range of runs, including lots of long, beautiful, empty red runs that are a delight to ski – the only time we encountered any lift queues was on the final Saturday. A wonderful week with lovely people – we will recommend you to our friends!

    Veron and i had never skied before and were wondering just quite how to start, david, Jane and Maria showed us just how easy it all is to catch the skiing bug. Pila is a resort with everything except crowds. The piste's were varied from nursery through to black with loads of variety. The snow on and off piste could not have been better. The whole group received what tuition we required. In our case lots every day whereas more advanced members worked on their off piste skills. In the evening we adjourned to the chalet for a lovely meal on four of the nights. Breakfast is lavish but bring your own bacon ! The offer of inclusive wine and beer is not to be underestimated. The home made Limoncello is lethal. and delicious. Avoid at all costs if you want to ski straight the next day :-)

    We did a week in Jane and David's lovely self catering apartment with our 3 teenage kids. It was a lovely spot, with great views of the Aosta valley and about 10 min drive from the Pila seggiovia. The apartment we stayed in was well furnished and comfortable, with everything we needed to cook our meals at the end of the day. Also very conveniently there is a supermarket located just down the hill about 10 min walk, great for stocking up on fresh italian bread every morning!! As we did not have a car, Jane and David operated a great taxi service to and from the lifts every day, as welll as giving us 2 1/2 hours of ski instruction every morning, and all this was free of charge!! An amazing deal..The resort of Pila itself was a great place to ski, with good options both for more experienced skiers and beginners. We would definitely recommend this resort and staying with the Stanton's!!
