Travelling with a nine month old baby this was a really nice spot for a combination of relaxation and visiting the area. We stayed for a week in July 2013 and enjoyed it.

The b&b is situated away from most things, but actually serves as a really good starting point for many things to do in the area (close to Torino for nice shopping, museums, restaurants, day trips to the mountains ++). Giulia and Silvana helped us with good recommendations for things to see, places to visit and restaurants to go to (as well as bookings). Riva itself has a nice bar/café that serves good and cheap food from 7 to 19. We also used it for take-away - they have different varieties of very good salads. Riva also offers two minimarkets and a pizza place.

Great, large and clean swimming pool. G&S are very kind, hospitable and helpful. They speak Italian, English and French. G&S are very sweet and attentive. E.g. they brought homemade refreshments for us at the pool several times during our stay. The b&b is spotless - everything is in perfect order all the time. One can feel a little monitored, because G&S quite often come around to check that everything is fine. But that is of course a matter of taste.

The (green) room was spacious and nice, and G&S provided a crib for our son. The rooms do not have air-con, and since it was quite humid some nights during our stay, S was kind to open the windows to the back, so we could get drafts through the room. Very nice. You can hear the cars from the highway, so for some the open window to the front will require earplugs.

You are not allowed to use the kitchen, but since we were travelling with a baby G&S let us prepare his food in the kitchen and even provided a microwave for heating his bottle in the morning. Perfect! We were a bit disappointed with breakfast the first morning, but G & S asked us what we would like the following days, so we got eggs and a bit less white toast bread and sweets.

If you are looking for a family home type, definitely stay at "La Taupinière"; it is an old italian house which has been entirely refurbished providing a high level of excellence in terms of design and finish. The house is decorated with items from the surroudings contrasting with souvenirs that the family gathered from their tour round the globe. So anybody can find a touch of their own land in "La Taupinière". What more could you dream of ? A warm welcome ? There again, Silvana & Giulia - Mother & daughter - are both extremely attentive to what you may need either in terms of food for breakfast, or a selective itinerary for your personal holiday visit or providing you guidance to the local market and shops. When you come back in the evening, you can rest at leisure in the swimming pool which is most welcome in the hot italian weather.
An address that I will remember and that I would like to share with people looking for both charm and class.

I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending this lovely B&B. We stayed here for a couple of nights as a stop off on our journey back to the UK.

Beautifully furnished, comfortable beds, immaculately clean, generous and tasty breakfast, secure and spacious parking and really lovely hosts Silvano and Guilia, for whom nothing is too much trouble.

My rave review continues, lovely private gardens in which you can relax on the high quality garden furniture before enjoying the truly superb 25 metre heated outdoor pool.

My only regret is that we only stayed for 2 nights.

If you are looking for accommodation anywhere near Turin or the surrounding area, this is without doubt THE place to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in the yellow room which was lovely.

we don't know how to thank you for the fantastic review you wrote about us. It's always a great emotion and reward for us, to know that our guests enjoyed their stay here. We always try to do our best, and we're glad when we get such a good feedback. :)
We hope to see you again one day, and for sure we'll join you for a coffee if it happens to be in Yorkshire.

I travel to Pinerolo regularly to see my family and i always stay at La Taupiniere if they have space. I have stayed on my own and also with my boyfriend and always have a great time.
All 3 of their rooms are spacious and clean with great ensuite bathrooms. The swimming pool available during the summer months is fantastic.
The family who run La Taupiniere are extremely friendly, helpful and always go the extra mile to ensure your stay is a pleasure.

A large and extremely clean swimming pool made our stay just lovely. La Taupiniere is a great place to enjoy the city of Turin and the sourrounding mountains. I went there last summer with my husband and my 2 children who just loved the pool, which was always so clean and the water so warm. The owners Silvana and Guilia came every afternoon with an ice cream, fresh fruit or a slice of cake, fruit juices... we were a bit afraid of seeing many "plus" on the final bill, but it was a nice surprise to find out that they offered us everything. Also the internet is very quick and always available, and completely free.
The rooms are spacious and very cosy too, there were little hearts and candies hidden in every corner.
Just like a second honey moon for me and my husband, and a great fun for our kids.
Pity you are so far, we'd love to return soon!! A big hug from your friend in Singapore!

Room Tip: We had the "pink" room, which looks just like a dolls' house.

Mrs. Silviana and Guilia welcomed us as if we were friends of them, from the first moment they've been so kind and always ready to help us with bookings, internet, they even put fresh roses on the bed as i had told them Lidia and I were on a honeymoon.
everything is very clean and tidy, beds are very good. There were 2 paintings made by Silvana in our room, and free unlimited internet access, among the other things.
The bathroom was even bigger than ours, and in every corner u'll look u'll find a little thing decorated, painted, sewed...
Torino is very close, in fact we went there everyday, it takes about 30 mins by car, and the highway is just 5 mins far from the B&B.
As both me and my girlfriend have Italian granparents living in Torino, from now on we'll certainly go back at La Taupiniere next year!
Thx very much Guilia ans Silviana, see you in Nov 2013!

Room Tip: We had the yellow room, just perfect for a couple.

Our B&B is only 5 minutes far from Pinerolo and 15 minutes far from Turin. Silvana, Didier and Giulia will warmly welcome you in their house. This typical Piedmontese country house dates back to the 18th century. It has been completely renewed in 2007: you will find a very familiar and cozy atmosphere. The house is located in the countryside, in the very centre of the village, only 3 km far from the larger Pinerolo.

We discover all this every time we meet a new guest, who, at the end of the stay, often becomes a friend. We will personally serve you the breakfast, we think that sitting in front of a rich breakfast is the best starting point to meet people! ... more   less
