GPS mentioned arrival within 500m and we were still driving through a busy tunnel... At the end you come to a roundabout and can drive up the hill to this little gem. Rarely seen such a respectful and tasteful renovation. Host is passionate about renovation and home decoration and it shows.
We stayed on the first floor overlooking the quiet - somewhat forgotten - lake of Avigliana. Perfect place to contemplate life. Breakfast is Italian but with homemade focaccia and ham. So nice to have breakfast looking over the lake while listening to the birds in the surrounding trees. Even the lazy wandering dog shows the "dolce far niente" atmosphere that makes this places so special. We were whispering as we did not dare to interrupt the sacred silence. One downside: Saturdays in summer some bar and disco noise near the lake can get through to the B&B, but nothing that keeps you awake at night. Nevertheless, Cinzia, you should have them shot, as disturbing the peace and quiet at Le Maddalene is no less than blasphemy -) Hope to come back one day and look forward to your renovation of the Sicilian convent...
