"Yesterday" ..today !"
Pialpetta ,the hamlet where this house is located is an ideal destination if you are looking for a" get way from it all" holiday : the one shop covers four hamlets & the one road along the valley, which is flanked by a fast flowing river, ends in a wall of impressive mountain peaks, less than 4 kms after the house.
The location is a haven for walkers. There are a number of well signposted paths leading from Pilapetta into the mountains on both sides of the river, adapted to different levels of walkers /hikers-: from novices & families to experts .
The area is relatively unknown & unspoilt & has some beautiful walks & even in August we rarely met other walkers.
And the house ? What you are getting is exactly as it says in Elisabetta's description : you are getting the (rare) opportunity to stay in a house that has stayed in the same family since it was built in the late 19th century, with many of the original features still in place ..painted ceilings ...stone floors, etc . As a result, the house- like a favourite aunt- has its very own idiosyncracies & it is for you to adapt to the house ..it is part of the charm of having the opportunity of staying in such a unique house : in our case we loved staying there !!!
Finally the owner , the housekeeper & her daughter could not have been more helpful : they even made themselves available via social media during our stay which enabled us to plan a day out to Turin in August ..which apparently is not an easy thing to do ! Thank you again for everything !!!!!!!!!
Thank you Alan for being such a careful and respectful guest in Villa Mattirolo. Hosting you has been a real pleasure and we are looking forward to welcome you again in Pialpetta !
La casa respira tutta l'atmosfera del suo grande passato. Ottimo soggiorno !
La casa è di grande fascino per chi è consapevole di abitare una vecchia villa. Gli ambienti sono splendidi e ben distribuiti, gli spazi esterni curati e ben fruibili, la posizione ottima per belle passeggiate nella natura.
Difetti: la casa è piuttosto polverosa e questo potrebbe causare problemi a chi soffre di allergie. La dotazione di base è esseniale. Per il resto tutto bene, compresa l'accoglienza calorosa e cordiale.
The house is located on the GTA (Grand Tour des Alpes) and is a great base for strolls, from the simplest on plan to do with the kids to the most challenging for mountain lovers. In the area, there are interesting WALLS or BOULDER for free climbing enthusiasts. At 50 Km there is also the REGGIA DI VENARIA, maisonous Sabauda residence, part of the unmissable UNESCO heritage.
