Would highly recommend staying with this host. The apartment was perfect for a skiing break with children. Great cooking facilities and so convenient to the ski lift, shops and a lovely restaurant within a few minutes from apartment. Thanks Gigi for a lovely stay.
We were a party of 7 and found the apartment to be spacious enough. The location was great, right on the slopes with a ski lift to the best and longest blue of the resort and two fun reds. The views of the mountains from the apartment are fantastic. The apartment was heated by a pellet stove that gave off plenty of heat and kept the main living area toasty! Gigi was helpful and polite and although we never met him as we arrived much later than we thought we would, he was in regular contact via WhatsApp to check we were OK, advise with ski schools, bars/restaurants and with issues we had.
Although we were pleased overall there was a few minor issues that could easily be solved. The mattresses we found pretty hard, I would say they need an upgrade as we found the sofa bed to be more comfortable than the actual beds! Also there wasn't really a proper welcome pack /guide to advise with things like how to use the cooker or turn the temperature down on the stove. One night there was a power cut as we were cooking at the same time as the washing machine was on. The fuse just needed flicking up but it was in the basement. Fortunately Gigi messaged us straight away and the guy from the restaurant below helped us get it back on within 3 minutes or so, however this information could have been written in a guidebook! There are two electric showers that have separate tanks but each only has about 5 mins of hot water so if all 7 people want a shower at you have to limit about 2-3 mins each and split between some showing in the morning and some at night. Again this info would have been helpful in a guide. Still giving 4 stars as it was great value and the overall experience made up for the issues. With a little bit of investment could easily be 5 stars and I would happily pay a bit more. Cheers Gigi for a great holiday!
We have just spent an excellent Christmas skiing in Passo del Tonale and Gigi's apartment is situated within very easy walking distance of one of the ski lifts to blue and red runs. The apartment was basic in terms of culinary equipment for self catering purposes (eg no kettle), however, it was clean and warm and made the ideal base for our ski holiday. The Ristorante "Palla di Neve" beneath the apartment was also very good and the staff welcoming and friendly.
We recommend Gigi's apartment and hope to return soon :)

We are currently here at the apartment and are having a fantastic Christmas. Gigi the owner is so friendly and helpful. The apartment perfect as a base for skiing with a ski lift at the back of the apartment that takes you up to blue and red runs. From here you can ski to the rest of the runs in Tonale and also as far as Ponte de Legno. The resort is great for beginners and intermediates and perfect for families.
This apartment is directly above a restaurant called Palle de Nove - Snowball .... which is self service during the day and table service at night. The food is excellent there and the prices are good too. The staff are very friendly.
I would highly recommend coming here and will be looking to return.
The only improvement we would say is needed for English people is a kettle for a much needed cup of tea after a long day out on the pistes.
