    The time in the spa is a bit too short: only 1,5 hours. If you use the sauna properly (3 times in the sauna plus some break to cool down in between, you need 2 hours - but staff asks you to leave after 1,5 hours). Be careful, this is Italy - you must be dressed in bathing suits in the spa area. As frequent sauna users, it was annoying to have a shower after sauna being dressed. Overall, other people use the sauna with their bathing suits but no towels. This was not hygienic and healthy. Staff should take care that the sauna is used properly (with a towel and no bikini).

    The kitchen was equipped with all you need. Spacious room, clean bathroom. It was comfortable to spend time in the room and cook. Nice views. Spa is beautifully made (you need extra booking and only 8 people are allowed inside). Good value for money.

    Our overall experience was good but we could kindly suggest that it would be wonderful if the resort has a parking at least with a roof or build some protection for cars from heavy snow or any harsh weather condition. It will prevent visitor cars from having a frozen engine that could eventually ruin their great experience at Pietre Gemelle. All the best!

    we booked a 1 bedroom apartment and the size of the apartment was more than we expected. There was a kitchen, a bedroom plus an extendable sofa in the living room good enough for another 2 people. Also, the bathroom was decent in size and only 2km away from ski slopes with a shuttle bus passing every 15-20 mins to take you to ski lifts.

    I'm very glad that we stayed 2 nights only, not a week as a usual ski holiday. You hear just everything what your neighbors (not loud ones) do, how they talk to each other, go to bathroom etc. etc. . Impossible to sleep. Earplugs are must! We had a studio on the ground floor. No restaurants at short walking distance.

    Nothing really too important. There's no oven in case you want to cook, but a microwave and 2 electric plates for cooking only.

    Beautiful Walser style houses with spacious apartments. Nice big beds, great shower. Amazing views both directions (the houses are divided into 4 apartments each, 2 on the ground floor and 2 on the first and second floors. All apartments are spread from the front tot the back of the house which gives much light). Great BBQ area with 2 barbecues and 2 big seating areas (picknick tables), for 4 people each, and a mall one for children. The Spa is truly amazing, the massage in the pool is really nice and strong. The sauna is truly hot and the Turkish bath is really steamy. The relaxing area has nice chairs as great herbal tea (note: 12 euro per person but worth every cent!) The staff is very friendly. Alessia is the best beautician I have met in years. My skin looks better for 4 whole weeks! We were here in March and now found that you can walk to Lo Chalet in less then 10 minutes for coffee or breakfast (via the road or next to the river). We also have to recommend dinner at Osteria di Boccorio: real Italian food at its best with an owner devoted to make you taste the good stuff and ensure you have great evening. Great wines too. If you are with two people up for risotto con toma cheese, for sure do try it. Or ask for the second portion to take away (da asporto).☺️ Grazie per tutto, Ambra, Chiara, Alessia!!! A la prossima!!!

    Nothing too much or too enduring, but the heat control system was hard to understand and regulate. We never were cold though. There was no oven, just a microwave. And no coffee maker, so you have to out for breakfast, which is really Italian thing to do. There are several options nearby though which have great coffee and brioches or sandwiches. So we actually made it extra special.

    Spacy apartment in beautiful typical Walser style house (type: superior), beautiful view, incredible spa (beautiful and everything really works well; note spa entrance costs 12€ per person for 1.5 hrs) with really good facial treatment. As our apartment had separate bedroom we could turn off heat there and enjoy fresh air in bedroom. The beds were really good, felt like home, and 180 cm wide as well. Even though the resort is located directly at the main road, there is no noise coming from the road. It is a very quite and relaxing area.

    With 2 electrical plates cooking is somewhat difficult. (But why would you want to cook yourself when you're in Italy...). With 20 euros per person for 90 minutes the sauna is a bit expensive. We didn't use it, so we can't judge on the sauna facilities.

    Staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. The ski bus stops in front of the complex and when for some reason it didn't go the staff braught us right up to the lift. Alagna is only 2,5 km away, but it's easier to take the bus as it's a 500m walk from the nearest parking place. They have fixed the wifi-problems, so it's some of the best internet connections I've experienced on holiday.
