Ivrea Villa Rental Photos and Description
4, 4, 12
The former headquarters of a completely derelict iron-ore mine, which dates from Roman times, with the 40 hectares woodland have been completely transformed in a garden of Eden during last 20 years. The 19th century buildings have been converted into a restaurant and guest rooms, while a smaller house in the garden is now a romantic cottage. In the wide, lush garden, which has been established with surprising success on top of the old mine debris, live now a large amount of plants, flowers, fruits and vegetables, while in the woods wild fungi and berries are picked to find their way into seasonal menus, based on interesting Jewish-Italian or Piedmont's cooking. There are shady terraces, ruins to explore in the old mine's enchanting world: forges, ancient mill's stone wheels, galleries, abandoned villages, Napoleonic mule tracks... Lovers of wildlife, geologists, archaeologists, mycologists, artists and sportsmen will find a new world for their interests and passions.
From La Miniera it is possible to start a very interesting tour to visit Jewish Piedmont and its 16 restored ancient synagogues and sites of jewish memory, beginning from Ivrea' Synagogue through Alessandria, Asti, Biella, Carmagnola, Casale Monferrato, Cherasco, Cuneo, Mondovì, Saluzzo, Torino and Vercelli.
There are many ancient castles in Aosta Valley and in Canavese. Many trails to do trekking are very easy to reach over the hills and the mountains all around.
Turin with its restored downtown, palaces, museums and shops is 50 km far from La Miniera.
