Apartment with great position on slopes, but accommodation rather tired and disappointing
The position of the apartment on the slopes is excellent; it is an easy walk into Cervinia and you can ski in and out to the door with ease. The main lift is only a couple of hundred metres away and easy to get to. There is a free car park about 150 m away, but note the uphill walk to the apartment with ski luggage is hard work.
The apartment would sleep 6 as advertised but would be cramped if the sofa bed in the lounge was used; it was fine for four of us as no-one was sleeping in the lounge.
The apartment itself is tired and not particularly well maintained. There is a small cooker, but no oven and no microwave, which is restrictive. There are limited utensils and some basics are missing; there is no cheese grater or kettle for example - which means boiling water in a pan on the stove for a cup of tea!
The window shutters have broken catches and when we arrived the outer doors to the apartment were tied open with plastic carrier bags! We had problems with shutters banging in the wind overnight and had to improvise (again with plastic bags!) to hold them shut. When we arrived the apartment had not been cleaned from the previous occupants; their bedding was still on the beds and rubbish in the bins. When the beds were made up for us the sheets and pillowcases were still wet and we had to re-strip the beds, dry the bedding and re-make the beds. Snow to the door of the apartment had not been cleared and there was no shovel for us to do it ourselves. When we arrived we were only given hand towels and had to ask to get proper bath towels.
The heating in the apartment is excellent and there is a boiler cupboard to keep skis and poles etc. in. Boots are best kept in the lounge near the radiator.
Overall we had a good trip, but it could have been much better if some of the issues with the apartment had been put right - we had asked about some of these beforehand (based on previous feedback) and had been to told they had been put right, which was not the case.
Owners do not speak much English (this is not a criticism - I don't speak any Italian!) but just be aware when booking that communications, especially on site, can be slightly difficult if you don't have any Italian. The owners did respond in respect of requests for towels etc. but it is just a pity that we had to ask at all. The apartment really would benefit from a little investment which could make it really good; currently it is disappointing despite the excellent position.
Great Italian Hospitality
Thanks Cristina for a fantastic stay. I stayed for five nights with a friend and it worked great. I think my wife would want something a little more modern and lux but it worked great for me. It was clean and well maintained. The property is exactly as described in the listing, a great choice in a great area offering exceptional value. The location is excellent. In walking distance of the town, a snowballs throw from a bar with rustic, homely food and...AND....YOU CAN SKI TO THE LIFT!!! What's not to like. The mini kitchen was missing a coffee pot so we bought Cristina a stove top as a thank you for her generous hospitality.
Fantastiskt läge i Cervinia
Ett riktigt Bum-ställe. Väldigt enkelt, men fullt fungerande. Köket kunde uppgraderas lite så man kan laga mer egen mat. För en långhelg var detta ett perfekt boende för oss med fantastiskt läge!
Leuke woning midden op de piste! Top locatie! Lekker ruim
Mooie woning midden op de piste. Veel ruimte. Wij waren met zes personen en hadden voldoende ruimte. Goede communicatie en alles was duidelijk en helder. Top verblijf gehad met heerlijke pistes! Een tip: ietsje meer pannen en potten zou fijn zijn, maar behalve dat, toptoptop!
Heerlijke vakantie gehad. Christina bedankt voor dit top verblijf!
Visst, vi var förberedda på basic, men nivån var helt enkelt för låg: det fanns inte tillräckligt med tallrikar, inga ordentliga glas, inga skålar, osv. Dessutom var en köksplatta inte inkopplad, ugnen som utlovats saknades helt och vi fick trots påstötningar endast två av fem påslakan.
Meget charmerende lejlighed med fantastisk beliggenhed og udsigt
Vores familie, 2 voksne og 3 store drenge, brugte lejligheden i uge 7/2019. Lejligheden er simpel og spartansk, men indeholder i store træk nødvendige faciliteter til simpel madlavning. Lejligheden er dejlig stor og passer fint til 5, eventuelt 6, personer. Der er mulighed for rigtig god varme i lejligheden.
Udlejer holder til i en nærliggende restaurant 40 meter fra lejligheden. Udlejer er utrolig sød og hjælpsom.
Udlejer kan med fordel forsyne informationsmaterialet med et kort og en beskrivelse af, hvor man skal parkere, idet det ikke er muligt at parkere ved lejligheden.
