#1 of 3 B&Bs / Inns in San Massimo
It is the first house born on the Pianoro di Campitello Matese, built in full respect of the local architectural tradition, it is a charming rural home where to spend a holiday immersed in nature more alive than ever. The small building is surrounded by a coniferous forest of over 30 thousand meters. It boasts an extraordinary location because the entrance to the rooms of the Rural Residence can be reached directly on skis, while the entrance of the structure is connected by a tree-lined avenue to the new square of the resort which is just 50 meters away.

Great little family run hotel in a lovely location, great for skiers who want to enjoy the mountain and the snow. You can get back to the hotel without taking off your skis, which for me is great. The room was a little on the small side but nice and warm (also a big plus for me). Also, there is no lift and so we had to walk up two flights of stairs to get to our room, which was ok for us but might be good to know if you don't like stairs. There is also a cosy area downstairs by the bar with a nice fireplace. Ah, and last but not least, you will eat divinely! The chef is simply amazingly good. There is also a remarkable choice of gluten-free dishes, which my wife absolutely loved. She is coeliac and has had very bad reactions to food in many other places. But here she just loved it, just like the rest of us. What's remarkable is that they do not actually advertise their gluten-free cusine, but they do offer it and it's great. Finally, the staff are really all great and the owner is both professional and welcoming.

Stayed here the night before to catch the mountain finish of the Giro the next day. Very friendly staff. Service was fantastic. Bar and restaurant on site. Enjoyed our dinner- good selection and wonderful food. Breakfast included was very nice, coffee, cappuccino, corrneto, and buffet with strawberries, yogurt, cakes, toast etc. Free wifi at the bar worked well. No wifi in the room. Our room was clean and comfortable. Flat screen TV with sky cable. Forest surrounding the hotel and ski runs in winter and hiking in summer right there.

Thank you again to Pierpaolo and his team at La Pinetina. Yet again we had a great skiing holiday, plenty of snow and beautiful blue skies and sunshine in this truly lovely resort. Our group of 19 were warmly welcomed and nothing was too much trouble. The food at La Pinetina is always excellent and our teenage children were very happy with the delicious pizzas on offer - particularly the Nutella pizza for dessert! Enyo entertained us with his Karaoke most nights in the bar and everyone got to sing along and dance, including rousing renditions of "God Save the Queen" and "L'Inno di Mameli" (the Italian National Anthem which is far better than ours imho!). We will be back next year!

This year we were back at La Pinetina, this time with an increased number of friends (21 people consisting of families with teens and pre-teens) in our group. Although we were there on a week with little snow (ironically it began to snow the night after we left), we nevertheless had a great holiday with lots of fun for young and almost. La Pinetina has a charm of its own, perhaps because of its position in the middle of the conifer wood, close to the ski lifts, or because it’s an old house with history, or perhaps due to the personalities of the people who run it – manager Pierpaolo, his right hand man Ennio, the bar waitress (whose name escapes me, sorry) , cleaner Caterina and waiter Allin. Ennio, with his past career as a holiday club red coat/entertainer, is only too happy to produce his karaoke machine on request. The bar area is ideal for socialising before dinner, playing scrabble or having a drink and there is plenty of room for the kids. It’s worth staying on a full board basis and every evening guests choose the next day’s meal from a choice of three first courses (pasta or risotto or soup) and three main courses (meat or fish or eggs etc). Side vegetables and pudding are also served with meals. Although I am a teatotal I am reliably informed that drinks are very reasonably priced and served in rather generous measures. La Pinetina has its own ski hire shop run by the manager’s brother which recently renewed most of its stock with a number of well known brands. Campitello is perfect for families with children as it is self contained and feels very safe for the children and La Pinetina is in the best location in town. Please see my other review “Ski in – Ski out” for more information.

Our second stay at this hotel, both times with family and friends for a week's skiing. Rarely have we ever been made so welcome as at La Pinetina. From the moment we arrived the staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly, despite our total lack of Italian, and throughout the week they did everything they could to make sure we had a lovely stay. The hotel is very good value for money, especially given its proximity to the slopes and the wonderful (and extremely generously sized) meals we enjoyed three times a day! The truffle and wild boar pasta in particular was fantastic and the pizzas made in their own pizza oven are the best I've had in Italy. And the hotel was always clean and warm, no matter how much mud and snow we brought in off the slopes. There is a lovely bar/communcal room to lounge around in at any time of the day, where the kids were made as welcome as the adults. Ultimately, though, it's the people who make your stay and at La Pinetina you're made to feel like extended family. We'll be back...
