My husband and I stayed for only 2 nights at the villa but enjoyed it very much. We stayed at the beginning of September and it was very quiet with seemingly only 2 other couples there at that time. While there were preparations for a wedding in progress in the courtyard, it did not have any impact on our stay. Unfortunately the wedding did not take place until after we had left. We would have been very interested to have seen it. We had booked a double room but were upgraded on our arrival to a suite. This included a small kitchen area within one of the cupboards, a small dining table, a lounge area and the bedroom area partitioned off with shelving. Our two large windows opened out onto the long driveway and surrounding countryside and it was so lovely to hear the cowbells of a nearby herd ringing throughout the day. The grounds of the villa were beautiful and we took advantage of the complimentary bicycles and rode around the property. Magnificent! The pool was well maintained and surrounded by lawns and pretty garden beds. Breakfast was beautifully presented and plentiful. Marella, the manager, even sought us out during the day while we were strolling around the grounds, to see if we would like an ice-cream. Very thoughtful on such a warm day. Pinerolo itself is a lovely town. Unfortunately it is a little far to walk to from the villa, but the drive is easy and only about 5 minutes. The roads around the villa are very quiet to walk and provide lovely views across the
farmland to the mountains. All in all, a lovely quiet retreat in beautiful surroundings.
