We absolutely loved our stay at Briol and took the full board option. Great value. Hard to decide what we loved most....the simple, timber furnishings, the total dedication Johanna her family and staff have for their labour of love, the amazing, amazing views, delicious and plentiful meals, walking trails ( and watching the serious ones head out with full kit...

We stayed at Briol last September, and I’m sorry to say that we really did not enjoy it. We had high hopes, and at first sight we were really excited: the building is exactly as shown on the website, and the setting and scenery are amazing. I wish we had just had lunch and then left, because we would have...

If you are looking for a place to relax, unwind and to get away from our hectic existence? Briol is just the place to go to. You leave your car in the village of Barbiano and take a taxi (20 euro) up the mountain. You can also hike your way up but after a long drive I would strongly suggest...

Stayed here 6 nights in Oct, half board, in a room with ensuite bath at Haus Settari, ten minutes walk from the main building. You work up an appetite walking to dinner, and you will need a torch to walk back down after dinner to Haus Settari. It costs 20 Euros for the taxi ride up to Hotel Briol from...

Overall a great location, nice stuff and great concept. We even had a room with a bathroom. The Only problem were the really uncomfortable beds. There are wonderful hikes and waking tours in the area.

I am very pleased to hear that you felt quite comfortable with the marvellous landscapes surrounding our secluded location. We are highly honoured that the way we conduct our unique traditional guesthouse meets with your approval.

Just returned from three days and nights at Briol. It was an incredible experience. We drove to Barbiano and found (after much confusion) the parking spot, and were taken up to Briol in a terrifying 15-minute 4x4 drive. The setting is absolutely spectacular - in the daytime it looks like a mountain postcard come to life, and at night you...

Indeed, you describe everything that makes up Briol and its vicinity so fondly - beginning with your "adventurous journey" here. Thank you very much for taking this "burden". The way you particularise the genuine, unsophisticated and special nature of BRIOL actually corresponds to the way we perceive it. We wholeheartedly share your recognising sentiments.

We had booked a room in the main building, a booking which was confirmed by phone three days before our arrival. Upon arrival, after the exciting taxi drive uphill, we were informed that the booking had been changed and we were to stay in a villa 5-7 minutes further down the hill! The villa turned out to be a run...

Indeed, the confirmation of your booking was certainly not okay. Due to the fact that wrong booking confirmations mainly occured by phone, we have now instigated appropriate measures to ensure that this does not happen in future.

I really thought I would write a good review of Pension Briol. I am disappointed not to. The location is absolutely beautiful. The decor is nice. The food is decent. Johanna and her daughter are nice. Anna helpfully explained to us where we could hike and how long it would take. The negatives we experienced however, outweigh the positives. Rooms:...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Die Pension Briol, auf 1310m Hohe gelegen, ist seit 1928 nahezu unverandert erhalten. Hier erleben die Gaste in absoluter Ruhe und grandioser Berglandschaft noch eine Sommerfrische "pur". Wie sehr dieses Konzept stimmt, spiegelt sich auch in der Auszeichnung des Hauses zum "historischen Gastbetrieb des Jahres 2012 in Sudtirol" wieder. Doch aufgepasst, noch immer sind Toiletten und Bader am Gang, kein fliessend Wasser in den Zimmern und die Pension ist nur mit einem gelandegangigen kostenpflichtigen Taxi (derzeit 20€) oder zu Fuss in etwa 1,5 Stunden zu erreichen. Dafur finden Sie einen herrliches mit Quellwasser gespeistes Schwimmbecken auf der Bergwiese vor, das angeblich das erste Sudtirols gewesen sein soll. Nicht jeder muss sich hier wohlfuhlen, doch wer einmal das Besondere des Hauses erlebt hat, kommt immer wieder. NEU: Wunderschone, absolut ruhig gelegene Ferienwohnungen in der Villa Settari mit herrlichem Blick. Die beheizbaren, historischen Raume wurden aufwendig und liebevoll renoviert und mit Kuche und Badern ausgestattet. Mehr dazu auf unserer eigenen Homepage. ... more   less
