It's very difficult to describe just how unique, quirky, bizarre and brilliant this hotel is.
When you turn off the main road in Fenestrelle you are faced with a crazy, winding, zig zag road that snakes its way up to the top of the mountain... and after 10 minutes of hairpin bends this looming hulk of a hotel suddenly emerges from behind the trees.
The hotel is huge - I think it used to be some sort of sanatorium. The views are breathtaking. The staff are amazingly friendly. The food is exquisite - if boar is on the menu, order it.
This is one of the most memorable places i have ever stayed. Getting there is a bit of a pain in the bum, but I loved it.
