In a quiet, ancient country town – outdoor breakfasts and indoor style: trompe l’oeil decorations, frescoes, vaulted panelled ceilings

A classic country townhouse between Turin and the Alps - this noble family villa exudes centuries of elegance. It’s a 17th-century stroll from the main square in Cumiana’s charming town centre. Step through gates to a pretty garden presided over by a fine magnolia tree and a former hay barn, to be greeted warmly by Signora Sacchi. An architect whose two children grew up here, she will happily advise on all things local, from eateries to historic buildings, to ski resorts - and can easily arrange bike hire. You breakfast, Italian-style (special diets, eggs etc no problem if arranged in advance) at one table outside or in the impressive frescoed and wood panelled living/dining room. Trompe l’oeil country scenes decorate the hall and stairwell. And up on the first floor, with garden views, are two comfortable suites: 'Camelie' has a wrought iron queen-sized double and twin sofa-beds, and a big walk-in shower; 'Margherite' has a double and a twin room, a separate living room and a big granite-tiled bathroom with tub. Both have vaulted ceilings, terracotta tiles, antique furniture, attractive lighting and fabrics. Lovely.

  • Turin is a beautiful city, unknown to classic Italian tour but full of elegant buildings, Shopping streets, interesting museums. The most famous is the Egyptian Museum, second in the world after Cairo.
  • Another special museum in Turin, which is about half an hour drive, is the Automobile Museum, fascinating journey in the car's history, rich in rare or unique pieces.

  • A few kilometers from Cumiana there is the town of Pinerolo, with a medieval town, a beautiful cathedral and a square with cafes where take special aperitifs.
