Description

Between history and legend…lonely and imposing mt viso, the “stone king”, 3841 metres high, has fascinated travellers of all times. We are in the lands of the marquisate, occitan territory: the po valley, where the longest river of italy rises. It a land scattered with castles, abbeys and monasteries; along its ancient mule tracks and dirt roads travelled monks, merchants, knights and brigands. The mythical “road of salt”, leading to france, was an obligatory route not only for men, but also for salt, anchovies, oil, spices, textiles and wares. “mt viso hole” was excavated here: it is an irregular tunnel, 75 metres long, under the traversette col at an altitude of 2882 metres, for the passage of loaded mules and stooped men. Merchants from the dauphiné, provence and burgundy wandered from farm to farm. These people crossed the alps, descended the hills and arrived in the plain. Several travellers used to stop in this ancient inn where virginiawelcomed her guests with a smile, a hot meal and the warmth of the fireplace. The agriturismo. Today, after long restoration works, the “virginia” opens again. Inside you will find the rustic and warm atmosphere of the past, stone, wood, terracotta and old furnishings. Warm colours in the rooms evoke the typical atmosphere of rural houses. Our seven rooms are furnished with wood and wrought-iron beds, wardrobes and desks recalling folk culture and curtains evoking occitan boiserie of ancient mansions. Large common rooms dedicated to our guests: sitting-room, breakfast and dining room, a library with fireplace where you can relax. In the basement a large cellar where you can taste wines and typical products of this occitan territory. A charming and fascinating place, where you can find yourself againand discover forgotten traditions and cultures. 6 double rooms and 1 triple room, all en-suite,buffet breakfast, tv, telephone, fax, internet access, free private car park. Tasting and sale of typical products, some produced in our farm. Wine cellar and wine-and-food library. We also organize excursions and events. Bread baked in wood oven, fresh milk taken fromcows grazing on mt viso alps…good things in life taste better if shared with friends…in the po valleynear our agriturismo you can discover interesting sights: mt bracco, also called leonardo’s mountain, the cistercian abbey in staffarda, the marquises’ chapel and the museum of the po river in revello, remains of the cistercian nunnery in rifreddo, mt viso and pian del re, where the po springs, the archaeological site of balma boves in sanfront, ostana and its stone houses and the medieval town of saluzzo, ancient capital of the marquisate.

Un sens de l'accueil que l'on rencontre rarement : disponibilité, gentillesse et sourire. Le propriétaire sait également faire partager son amour de la cuisine, des bons produits, et de la région : pour faire court, une adresse que l'on a plaisir à recommander vivement et à partager avec ses amis !

Un week end da sogno (Group of Friends)
Abbiamo soggiornato in questioagriturismo a metà novembre del 2009 con degli amici. Era un sabato nebbioso e freddo, ma l'accoglienza è stata caldissima e cortese. La struttura accogliente, ben riscaldata e le camere pulite.La cena a base di piatti tipici con pane fatto in casa il tutto riscaldato da due caminetti e dal sorriso del titolare. La colazione abbondate, con gustose torte fatte da loro. Lo consiglio volentieri a tutti
