Why Barbara Albis chose San Secondo di Pinerolo
Here our guests feel at home and can enjoy natures’ richness. The five senses: sight, hearing, smell, touch and taste often obscured by daily life will be awakened. Every season offers a different pleasant sensation that you can maximize at Casa Aiva. We are happy to share with the guests the positive sensations which this place has given us and continues offering from the first time we arrived here.
What makes this Villa unique
Come to experience every season at Casa Aiva! 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.

Great place to stay
Great place - clean and adequate kitchen utensils for 5 of us. Maybe a dishwasher would have been nice to have but not essential!
We managed with our 12 yr old on a single sofa bed with us in the double bed main bedroom. And a teenager and adult in a double sofa bed and single bed in the living room. One point to note is the advert and price is for 4 people so it’s extra for a 5th person.
Bathroom (spacious clean and lovely with washing machine) - only the one bathroom but we managed.
Pool is lovely - temperature was always fine.
Lovely mountain views - it is much cooler in the evenings.
Drove to Turin markets a few times and Pinerolo market. Also did some energetic mountain walks locally.
Convenient for supermarkets too so easy enough to shop.
Had some tasty meals in the local restaurant (fish speciality) too.
Very detailed informative folder by the owners in places to visit etc which we found very useful.
Al in all, an excellent relaxing place to stay.
