Guestbook comments from the manager

Guest testimonial June 2005

My wife and I spent a fabulous week with our daughter at 'La Granica'. The cottage is beautifully furnished and set in beautiful surroundings. It was spotlessly clean and provided all the amenities necessary for a great and very comfortable holiday. We particularly enjoyed using the pool everyday (helped by the 80 degree water temperature), it was noticeably well maintained and was complemented by the poolside furniture, a perfect place for relaxing. We were also extremely impressed by the warm welcome we were given by Mark & Karen and their enthusiastic and helpful manner. They were, at all times, very approachable and friendly and offered some great ideas for places to visit and things to do. We have already been recommending 'La Granica' to our friends and family and would not hesitate to recommend 'La Granica' to anyone else seeking a holiday in the Piedmont area. We will definitely be going back!
