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.

Nous avons passé deux nuits très agréables dans cette location avec nos 3 enfants.

L'appartement correspondait parfaitement à la description. La propriété était propre et bien entretenue et nous disposions de tout l'équipement nécessaire.

Barbara la propriétaire nous a accueilli très sympathiquement avec des petits présents et des conseils pour les visites et les restaurants très utiles.

Nous avons visité Turin qui se trouve à 50 minutes de route et les villages environnants.

Nous recommandons cette propriété pour tous ceux qui souhaitent visiter Turin et ses environs sans être en pleine ville.
