What makes this chateau / country house unique

Come to experience every season at Il Ciabutin!

In autumn the colors of the hills and the mountains will surround you, you could wander in search of mushrooms in the nearby woods, gathering chestnuts, apples and persimmons, relax by listening to the tinkling of sheep which graze on our meadows.

Even winter has its own charm.. At Casa Aiva you could listen to the silence of nature that slowly falls asleep, you’ll watch the sun rise to the east and then enjoy its warm rays while below - in the plains - everything is shrouded in fog.

You also could easily reach the many ski slopes, enjoy the typical dishes in a pleasant retreat after a snowshoe hike and then relax in the heat of the stove in the living room, drinking a hot tea, a glass of our red wine or an excellent digestive of this region.

In springtime, since March, you could watch the awakening of nature, you’ll see flourish the five different varieties of our camellias, the magnolia put the first flowers of pink and fuchsia, soon followed by the green leaves. you’ll warm up to the rays of the sun warmer, stretch your legs and take relaxing walks among the markets and fairs in the spring and its thousands of flowers and colors.

The summer is pleasant because you will live intensely sunny days and agreeable weather of these parts, feel the sun getting stronger, but never suffer the extreme heat because here in the hills it is always slightly breezy. You could choose between a mountain bike ride, a hike in mountain lakes and breathtaking mountain peaks, a village festival in the name of culinary delights, dances and traditional games... have you never heard of square bowls?

And then, a dip in the pool, to relax and enjoy the sun setting behind the hill. Eating on the patio, watching the plains gradually light of so many lights and who knows... watch the fireworks organized by the various villages below. And lie in the field watching the fireflies flying around and shooting stars in the sky.

A calm haven in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage on the edge of the mountains with a wonderful view over the surroundings. The cottage was lovely and clean with all the necessities. (Bathroom is not pictured above but is lovely and modern with a very good shower!!).

Barbara was very welcoming and there was lots of helpful information from Barbara and in the cottage about the local area and things to do. We were fortunate to be able to drink the wine from the vineyard we sat next to each evening and the pool was kept exceptionally clean and was a great facility to have. There were lots of towns and villages in the mountains to visit and we went to a high-ropes course and Tibetan bridge near to the French border which were great fun. There were two supermarkets near-by to purchase food as well as regular markets in nearby towns and a bakery in the local village.

Overall it was a really lovely stay in terms of the location, the owners and the facilities. I would highly recommend a visit here..... Thank you Barbara!!!

Sehr gemütliches kleines Haus mit traumhaftem Ausblick und schönem Pool

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schöner Ort zum Entspannen: Das Häuschen ist sehr gemütlich, es ist hier ruhig und man hat einen wirklich herrlichen Ausblick! In nur ein paar Minuten ist man in Pinerolo, was uns ebenfalls ausgesprochen gut gefallen hat. Hier kann man sehr gut essen gehen, Eis essen etc. Eine Mappe mit vielen gut beschriebenen Tipps gibt es in der Unterkunft ebenfalls, in einer Woche schafft man gar nicht alles was man sehen möchte.

Der sehr gepflegte Pool ist ebenfalls ein absoluter Pluspunkt!

Wir kommen gerne wieder und empfehlen das Häuschen gerne weiter.

Bijzonder leuk huisje met uitzicht over de wijngaard en wijde omgeving.

  • 5 of 5

Dit bijzonder leuke huisje staat op enkele tientallen meters afstand van de woning van de eigenaar. Mooi uitzicht over de wijngaard en de wijde omgeving. Op de achtergrond zijn de bergen.

Vriendelijke en behulpzame eigenaar. Goed en praktisch ingericht, alles heerlijk schoon en sfeervol met de vele objecten die er zijn te bewonderen. De badkamer is helemaal up to date. De keuken charmant en de slaapkamer boven sfeervol. Buiten kan je onder de wijnranken pergola in de schaduw genieten van het uitzicht, aan een andere kant kan je in de avond genieten aan een grote stenen tafel van je eten en drankje. Iedere dag zijn we erop uit gegaan, want er is genoeg te doen in de natuur, De Langhe met zijn heerlijke wijnen, Pinerolo en andere stadjes. Iedere dag zijn we ook nog een uurtje in het zwembad geweest. De wijn van hun kleine wijngaard kan je bij hun kopen en is zeker ook de moeite waard.

Feiner, kleiner Rückzugsort

  • 5 of 5

Sehr liebevoll gestaltete, kleine umgebaute Scheune mit der Natur vor der Nase. Die Besitzer sind unglaublich freundlich und machen ein sehr leckeren Wein. Wir waren fast 14 Tage da und haben uns wunderbar erholt und sehr wohl gefühlt.
