Extraordinary house. Spacious and very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The house was nearly perfect. Large rooms, well furnished. One (top floor) bedroom was almost an apartment in itself. Actually we can't think of anything bad about this house. Decoration was "of personal taste'' but surely done with passion and quality.

It's about 15 minutes drive from the nearest slopes so you need a car and a sense of good driving as the house is positioned a little off track. When there's no snow the road is good to drive though very small and well curved (watch out for deers crossing).

When your looking for a convenient and really quiet place: this one is spot-on.

We've enjoyed our stay. Skiing in Val Gardena is superb.

We have been in Pinaid house for our sky holiday and we had an wonderful time. We were 4 families with kids and the house is absolutely perfect for this kind of group. The kids were in heaven in the bunk room and the adults as well in the wonderful double rooms. In my opinion the house meets all the standards no matter how demanding you may be. The view is breathless and the ski slopes are within 5km from the house (no more than 10 min in the car).

Thank you for the wonderful stay, we will come back for sure for the summer holiday.

Stunning Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Without doubt the nicest property we have ever stayed in!!! We were a party of 3 couples and found the Pinaid to be everything we could ever wish for. Stunning views over the Dolomites, luxurious accommodation (fully equipped) and just a short drive to the ski slopes and fabulous restaurants. Village of San Pietro just a short walk away. FABULOUS!!!!!!! Will definitely return......

Owner's Response: It was, and is always a pleasure having guest that enjoy their holiday, and house. Its difficult to see the glorious views and great energy the house has to offer from pictures... So I will be posting some videos to help travellers make a easy decision when booking their holiday or corporate retreat ... Thanks again for sharing Ken & Team...

Fairy tale house in the Dolomites. Fully equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We were in the house for a complete week and really had a great time at the Dolomites. We were 4 couples, plus one single person and a baby. There was plenty of room for us all. Rooms are very large, 4 of them double with complete bathroom en-suite, and one room with 4 beds and bathroom outside. The house is amazing, and sometimes you even feel like you are in a fairy tale, with all the decorations of the house.

House is fully equipped. I have never been before in such and equipped kitchen as this was! There is also a BBQ in the terrace and a complete laundry-room. You will find whatever you need there for your stay.

Also, the views are awesome from the terraces, you fell you are in the sky.

Location is pretty good, only around 15 minutes to Ortisei, with bars, restaurants, supermarket, ....

I can say, hands down, this is the best house I´ve ever rented.

Perfect Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

It's not very often that the amenities and description of the house from Internet portal come exactly "as is" or "as close to" as you can get at Pinaid. Wonderful house with personal, artisanal finishes, in immaculate, clean condition with views to die for. We have stayed at the house with our friends and I could not have been happier with my choice/selection made on HomeAway. It is true home away from home in every sense of it with addition of hotel like amenities in each of the bedrooms that will make you, your family or friends very comfortable.... not to mention you'll feel like a hero as well - not an easy tusk I may add! With skiing in close proximity, Uberbacher bar/restaurant few minute's drive, it all came together to make our reunion a big success. Thank you Brian & Lynette, I'm sure we'll be back soon.

A beautiful summer or winter ski lodge for all the year round HomeAway Holiday Renters.

Fresh Alpine Air and the Spectacle of the Dolomites Lajen/Laion, a sunny high-altitude terrace situated at 1,100 meters above sea-level, between vineyards and Alpine meadows, is an idyllic vacation spot with magnificent vistas. The panorama of the Dolomites, the Langkofel / Sasso Lungo, the Sella Group, and the Schlern/Sciliar will take your breath away. The number of hiking trails and look-out spots is countless. And Lajen/Laion also has an artistic aspect insofar as it is believed that the famous Middle High German ballad-singer Walther von der Vogelweide was born in the hamlet of Ried/Novale, on the Vogelweid farmstead.

Other Activities: Dolomites vast ski area, and recreational out door activities

Golf: The Challenges of the Dolomites Lajen/Laion and its subdivisions of St. Peter, Tschöfas/Ceves, Tanirz/Tanurza, Freins/Fraina, Ried/Novale, und Albions offer you complete relaxation and numerous excellent hiking trails.

Bicyclists and mountain bikers are likewise guaranteed vast opportunities to explore the landscape.

History & Culture around a Wonderful Panoramic Terrace

The 'mountain cathedral,' as the parish church of Lajen/Laion is often called, tells a story of a special vacation region. Archeological evidence uncovered on the Innerraschötz / Resciesa Alpine Meadow indicates that Lajen/Laion was settled during the Stone Age, in approx. 6000 B.C. The first traces of human habitation at the Wasserbühl date back to the Bronze Age. After that, evidence of historical inhabitants can be found. The most-famous of these is without a doubt Walter von der Vogelweide; you are free to hike to and view the Vogelweid farmstead! You now have almost unlimited access to the attractions of this region: With the Gardena Card, you have complete freedom to explore this exciting vacation resort area.
