This pretty 18th C. house is set in its own park in the village of Romano Canavese 35 minutes from Turin. It is an oasis of peace and calm and very attractive. It has a huge drawing room taking up most of the ground floor with french windows out onto a terrace where you can have a drink. The bedrooms are spacious, ours which was a standard room was more like a suite in that it had a seperate sitting room and a large bathroom with both bath and shower. There was a delightful breakfast room which had its original 18th c. painted decoration and a restaurant in the converted stables. There was a small but good menu. Villa Matilde was turned into a hotel in 2004 having previously been a private house and still felt as if it was one, having been very well converted with lots of space to escape and read your book in private! There is a modern swimming pool area with a gym, sauna and conference center and additional bedrooms but given the choice I would definately recommend staying in the main house. It is a good place to explore Turin from and it is lovely to return to an oasis of calm after a day in the city. The only glitches are that the approach is off a rather dreary street and the surrounding village is'nt that exciting. The entrance is'nt very well signed and it is quite hard to find, I recommend google mapping it before you go.
