What Visitors have Said

ROB & DES: The Pether family would just like to thank Sam & Lisa & family for an amazing Italian Borgata experience. We loved every moment of staying with you guys. Hospitality was spot on. Apartment is gorgeous (you both did an amazing job) and the views, country side & locals are just gorgeous. We'll definitely be back asap. None of us wanted to leave.

CHRIS & WENDY: Once you have finished with the queues in Roma its time to find what Italy is all about. Staying with Sam and Lisa is a personal vision of the simple life in the Northern alps Growing veggies, hiking the Pra, meeting the locals and enjoying local food and a drop of vino. A perfect experience that you will never find at your travel agent or Hilton Hotel.

A real rustic farm like experience. Fantastic hospitality ..Sam and Lisa were incredibly hospitable and engaging. .but also gave us our space. Their children were an absolute delight and our children got on with them like a house on fire. They invited us to join them to a village dinner and had us visit the farmer in the same bogatta milking his herd. A great experience showing us true insight to rural Italy. We drove a few km up the road then hiked in the (URL HIDDEN) stunning. Brilliant

There is a quiet magic in the air that draws you in to this amazing borgata. For those who need a respite from travel and sightseeing, this is your needed stop. We were able to wander the foothills of the mountains, exploring old ruins and visiting with residents of this charming area. We spent a quiet morning on a hilltop, listening to the cowbells ringing in the valley below. The sounds of the water rushing over the rocks in the mountain stream was so soothing to our souls. Magic lives here.

We loved our stay in the Borgata Malpertus. Sam, Lisa and their children are the nicest crew you can imagine. They gave us a very warm welcome and made our stay unforgettable. The region is a hidden gem. If you love walks in the mountains, this is the place to be. Not known to a large crowd, so please keep it a secret;) We had a great time. Go visit! Chris & Belinda

Lisa, Sam et leurs enfants sont adorables, nous ont accueillis chaleureusement, sont toujours prêts a vous conseiller et a échanger. Ils sont aux petits soins ! Australiens, ils sont arrives a Bobbio Pellice et rénovent leur maison dans un petit hameau au fond du Val Pellice. C'est un endroit magnifique a decouvrir lors de randos, avec des panoramas sur le Mont Viso par exemple a vous couper le souffle, ou pour se poser le long des rivières comme les italiens, ou dejeuner dans un refugio. Bobbio est aussi un petit bourg anime. Bref, a decouvrir !

Come and be spoiled by the gang from Renovating Italy. Experience tranquility, comfort and friendship. Discover Val Pellice and enjoy a stay in a medieval mountain hamlet [Borgata Malpertus]. Super helpful without being intrusive, we are here to show you the best of our beloved valley.

We have been living a simple life in the mountains of Northern Italy for three years. Here you won't find a swimming pool or sun loungers but you will find lots of laughs, spectacular views and a Valley full of amazing characters.

We loved the Borgata the moment we saw it and many guests have felt the same, finding us through our Blog Renovating Italy and our episode on House Hunters International.

We look forward to meeting you.

ciao ciao Lisa and Sam
