Spacious and comfortable retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and it's surroundings. At the time we stayed in the house temeratures were in the range of 38-41 degrees. Nevertheless it was comfartably cool inside also during the night. We even did not miss the pool we always when renting a home in Italy. Also the daughter of the owner lived nearby and could help us with the little demans we had. Cetainly aplace we will consider a next time

Excellent

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed very much staying at your holiday home. It was everything we hoped it would be, the quality and quantity of the equipment was the best we have known. We especially enjoyed eating out on the balcony with great views , some days we had to wait for the mists to lift, but that was September.

The village was ideal. It was so good to be able to walk to get almost all one needs, whether it was supplies, meals or drinks and we took full advantage .

There was so much more to see in the area, we hope to return

A fabulous house!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here with my husband, 17 year old daughter, and brother-in-law. The house is huge, immaculate and extremely comfortable, and provided a perfect base for exploring the area. We spent many happy hours sitting on the terrace, either sunbathing or watching spectacular thunderstorms in the mountains! The owner's daughter, Louise, lives next door, and provided a lovely welcome when we arrived.

Piverone itself is a lovely little village, and we found plenty of things to do in the surrounding area - we especially enjoyed the drive up to Cervinia at the base of the Matterhorn, and also the spectacular Santuario di Oropa.

A super week - highly recommended!

Spacious house in peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This spacious house was a big relevation when we first arrived in Piverone. The location above the tiny local village area revealed a great view of the surroundings. If you are looking for a great place to refill your batteries in peace and quiet, this is it. If you want more action you can seek up nice bathing facilities nearby (lake Piverone or local waterpark), or drive a small hour to cities like Turin or Milano. A car is a must if you want to explore the near or far away surroundings.

The landlord lives nearby, and take care of everything you want, nice and smooth. Me and my family had a great week here, and it's recommendable for small or big families. If you are up to homecooking the kitchen is big and very well equipped. If you don't want to cook yourself, there are some nace resturants within 4-6 miles.

The bedrooms are spacious and with stunning views from the windows. Outside there is more than enough space for relaxing, either on the verandas or in the garden.

The house in general is very well equipped with many bathrooms, toilets and washing facilities, ande the standard is very good.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and very pleased you were not disappointed with the house... which now has Wi-Fi. Since your stay, a fantastic wine bar has opened in the village piazza, serving fine wines and light antipasti dishes. It's a great place to meet for an aperitif, or socialise with a glass or two of wine. Thank you for your review, we would be absolutely delighted to welcome you and the family back to Casa San Pietro again in the future.

Xmas

  • 5 of 5

Booked this lovely accommodation for my family to celebrate Xmas and the New year and was not disappointed.

We received a lovely welcome from the owners who live nearby. The house is decorated to a high standard and if you want a relaxing holiday away from it all this is the place to go.

The village is truely Italian and the wine from the local Cantina is excellent and value for money.

The balconies are a sun trap and many a game of cards were played in the sunshine even though it was December.

Unfortunately we broke down up in the mountains but our hosts were very helpful

and aided us in getting a hire car and repatriation back to England.

Would fully recommend this house

Location

Activity and Interests

Travel:

Turin Casselle airport is 35 minutes drive from the house. Milan Malpensa airport is 50 minutes drive. Both airports are easily reached by motorway and have car hire available.

If you wish to enjoy the beautiful scenery and drive from Britain, the house is 600 miles from the channel tunnel and can be reached through either Switzerland and the Grand St Bernard pass/tunnel or through the Monte Blanc tunnel. Both tunnels bring you into the Aosta valley.

Distances:

Ivrea, famous for its annual Orange Carnival held each year in Lent, is 5 miles from Piverone.

Turin is 35 miles away and Milan 50 miles.

Lago Viverone is 2 miles from the house, where you can enjoy water skiing and sailing.

If you want to go further afield, Lago Maggiore, one of the "famous" Italian Lakes, is a 45 minute drive from the house. From the banks of the lake at Stressa, you can take boat trips to two islands or a longer trip to Switzerland.

Further Details:

Piverone has several small shops, including a delicatessen, bakery and post office, as well as a bar/restaurant and two Cantina's where you can buy good quality locally produced wine. There are many restaurants in the area and a large supermarket a short drive from the house. ATM machines can be found in the supermarket as well as in the neighbouring Village of Viverone.

Viverone has a swimming club (Oasi) with four swimming pools, slides, crazy golf and volleyball. You could also swim in the lake... if you feel brave enough, the water is very cold even in summer!

"La Serra" behind the house is a large wooded area, ideal for mountain biking.

Free outdoor rock climbing facilities are available on the oustskirts of Ivrea, catering for all grades from beginner to experienced (own equipment is required).

The famous Ivrea Orange Carnival takes place over three days in Lent. There is an evening of fancy dress, a fireworks display, then on the Sunday afternoon, four teams travelling in horse drawn carts travel around the piazza's battling it out with oranges - a tradition that started in the middle 19 century.

Turin is famous for being the capital of the Piemonte region and historically was the home of the house of Savoy. A visit to the Reale Palace is recommended.

The Turin Shroud and the Mole Antonelliana (the largest building in Turin) are well worth a visit. If designer labels are your thing, you won't be disappointed with the shops... and after you've bent the plastic, enjoy an evening aperitivo in one of the smart cocktail bars.

The Aosta Valley has numerous Ski resorts and in the summer these areas are ideal for walking. Take a cable car from the town of Aosta to Pila, or view the Matterhorn from the Town of Cervinia.

Throughout the year there are many festivals celebrated in the surrounding villages to enjoy, as well as places of cultural and historical interest to explore.
