La Vignassa
Reviewed 17 December 2007

This B&B is wonderful and a true gem among the traditional mountain stone long houses in the Piedmont area. A stay here is highly recommended to give you a feel of the relaxed country life this region enjoys and a taste of the local culture. The owners are from the UK and Italy and both are friendly and willing to help with anything you need. They are also very knowledgeable about the history of the area and the history of the long houses. We were very impressed with their recommendations for hikes and restaurants. They even provided us with much needed information for finding our way around Torino and Pinerolo.
The home seems to be kept as original as possible, dating back to the early 17th century (possibly older). It has been updated on the inside to accommodate most modern conveniences but it is charming in the fact that most of the rooms are still intact. The roof is the traditional slate and there is one out building where the breakfasts were served.
The room we stayed in was nice and cozy, very clean and private. Even though we were there in July the temperature was very cool in the evening. We had plenty of heat available and warm blankets. The room is ensuite and we had plenty of hot water available. The breakfast was delicious each morning. With a selection of meats, cheeses, juice, and cereals, we had enough to get us going for our day of exploring.
The website for the B&B ([--]) cautions that the unpaved road leading to the home is very narrow. It is. We hired a Fiat Punto and felt very cautious driving up the .25 mile to the home even in this small car. However after the 2nd day of our stay we felt rather comfortable driving up. If you have any reservations I would take their recommendation to have them pick you up at the bottom of the drive, but for the more adventurous it is definitely “do-able”.
I can’t say enough good things about this B&B. We loved it and look forward to visiting this area again with a stay at La Vignassa.
