Sweetheart of a place

Have had such a lovely stay here! Both hosts are professional chefs, the meals have been substantial and delightful, reliant on locally sourced and home grown foods and traditional Piemontese cooking. I enjoyed a wonderful cooking class, working with both owner/chefs. There are good hikes in the area, even starting from here. Will be bringing friends on a return trip!!

Thank you Sheila, We so enjoyed your visit and getting to know someone that also grew up where I did in the US. I'm glad you enjoyed the class and your stay. We hope that you are able to return again sometime and look forward to any friends you might bring with you. We look forward to the next time you are able to visit with us. Marla & Fabrizio

Alles Gute für Körper und Seele

Wir haben 3 wunderbare Tage bei Marla und Fabrizio verbracht. Das Essen an jedem Abend war wirklich ein Highlight, immer frisch zubreitet aus dem Garten oder von nachhaltigen lokalen Betrieben. Tagsüber haben wir schöne Wanderungen unternommen und kleine, teils verlassene Bergdörfer entdeckt, oder den Markt von Pinasca. Auch Pinerolo war einen Besuch wert. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder.

Like Staying With Family

My family really enjoyed our stay with Marla and Fabrizio and were so impressed with the bed and breakfast, and especially their warm hospitality. We will always remember the wonderful meals we had with them, and the fun of heading into Pinerolo to go to the market with people who actually know the vendors. It was a great treat to learn about the history of Fabrizio’s family and to get to see the gardens and buildings he’s restoring. We also really appreciated the advice on hikes in the area, especially since it was completely off the tourist trail and we had the forest basically to ourselves. We would love to return some day.

We so enjoyed your family's visit. We hope your travel planning business is wildly successful as you are so motivated to check out all the wonderful out of the way things Italy has to offer. Your clients will be in excellent hands. We hope you and they will find their way back to us. In bocca al lupo...Marla & Fabrizio

I just can't get enough of Bella Baita

In the three months I lived in Liguria, I spent two 4-day weekends at Bella Baita. Although it was two train rides and a bus ride away, I couldn't get enough! The amazing location, nestled in a forest of mixed conifer and deciduous trees, creating the perfect setting for tranquil walks in the woods, on well marked paths maintained by Fabrizio, one of Bella's owner/chefs. He not only keeps the buildings and grounds immaculate, but he provides a level of entertainment that is unmatched in any other B&B or AirBnB I've ever stayed in. What I can't get enough of are the three homemade meals and absolutely tranquil, cozy room I had all to myself. Marla is American born, but she really serves up authentic, Italian cuisine to match any native Italian chef. I am vegan, but that didn't stop her from cooking food other guests enjoyed as well, while considering my preferences. Bella Baita is truly a mountain retreat. It is far from the madding crowd, and offers any forest lover all the scenery, flora, fauna, and exercise one could hope for. And, it's not only a B&B, but a place you can learn to cook Italian specialty dishes, created by the owners, Marla and Fabrizio.

Thank you for such a kind review pointing out all the things you discovered that was on offer in our neck of the woods in Italy. We so enjoyed your visit and in depth knowledge of so many things. We can see why you are such a great outdoor experiential teacher. Wishing you all the best in your next venture. warm regards, Marla & Fabrizio

Thoroughly Recommend

Marla and Fabrizio, We just wanted to thank you again for the lovely welcome and excellent hospitality when we stayed with you at Bella Baita. The warm fire, hot drink and cosy room were all very much appreciated after our long bike ride. We've been telling everyone about the delicious meal and outstanding views and hope that one day they will visit you too. Our continued journey to Florence and safe return to the UK was enjoyable although we were sorry that poor Valentino Rossi was unable to finish the race at Mugello. Best of wishes to you both and thank you again, Sarah and Sean

We're so glad you were able to make a stop on your way to the races. It was a short but sweet visit, that we hope will whet your appetite to return one day. All the best, Marla & Fabrizio

Very happy return customers here. Incredible hospitality, beautiful people and fantastic fresh homegrown and homemade food. We will definitely visit again.

So happy to have you return to visit with us with your delightful husband, after your family visit a number of Christmases ago. It was wonderful to learn about your life and your big travel adventures. Wishing you a long and happy married life together. Warmest regards, Marla & Fabrizio

A Wonderful Learning Experience

So much to see and a wonderful learning experience as well. The Inn keepers care about you, Italy and the preservation of Mother Earth

We are so happy you were able to come and visit with us and discover our part of the Piedmont Alps, as well as meet your Piemontese relatives. We hope you will be able to visit here again one day. Warmest regards, Marla & Fabrizio
