Peaceful Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What an amazingly peaceful retreat away from busy city life :)

The cabin was so cozy and wonderful, it was hard to leave at the end of my stay!

Pia is a great host and the cabin was in great condition for my stay. Everything was clean, neat and tidy.

I very much look forward to staying in this lovely spot again :)

It was only a quick 30 minute drive to the city and there was lots to see and do close by, and it was definitely inspiring to see Pia's artwork on display.

Thanks so much Pia!

fantastic

  • 5 of 5

I have been Pía'a guest several times and it has never been a letdown. The closeness to the lake is great. One can go horseriding at a farm close by. If I don't want to go to the water I can walk in the opposite direction up the mountain. I also had space there to work on my pictures. There are plenty of locations there to explore.

thank you John and Barbara

Peaceful Place

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy, we decided to rent Pia's wonderful atelier-summerhouse. It was perfect for us to go on day-trips, for hiking, to sit at home and knit and play music and read and do origami. The view over the lake is awesome and ever-changing. We took tons of pictures! The kitchen is really well-equipped. Pia gave us useful tips.
