Reviewed 3 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Casa dell’Ava is a lovely, comfortable, well equipped house. Think crisp bed linen, good shower, nice beds and a well equipped kitchen. From your bed you can gaze at the mountains. The balcony has the most amazing views over the valley.
The location of the house is in an authentic Italian mountainside village called Pianazolla. It is car-free, has cobbled windy paths around charmingly old stone houses. There are no shops or bars, but Chiavenna has everything including some fabulous restaurants.
The living area has a large dining table. The balcony is the only outdoor space, it’s long and narrow, and only fits small folding chairs.
There are walks, waterfalls, lovely villages in both Italy and Switzerland, nearby. The outings outlined in the handbook, made by the owners, did not disappoints their suggestions were really useful.

“A lovely cottage with breathtaking views”
Reviewed 14 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We loved our stay in this great cottage. You literally feel as if you are on top of the world. The kitchen was very well appointed, comfortable beds and a great shower. It is in an area of such natural beauty. So much to do an explore in the surrounding area. For nature lovers,! We highly recommend!
