In the middle of the fields there rose up an antique country manor, transformed over the years in a rural house; by the main body, in which there are still left late seventeenth century characteristics, it has been built the stable, topped by a high barn.
The story of this house is little known, only the walls and the antique painting were left to speak about of what has been. Nevertheless, its past time savour has lost nothing: the rough walls interrupted by blocks of river stones used for saving the bricks; the antique doors and frescoes; then the rooms were rough wooden or stone floors suggest the colour harmony, are nothing but witnesses who whisper the flowing of time.
After some years of work and meticulous restorations this house has been brought at it original beauty.
La Casa delle Grottesche takes its name from its beautiful paintings (Grotesques), which are reborn from the hands of a special artist; thanks to her you will find yourselves in a world of antique flavour, wrapped by warmth and emotions. Cristina, now captured by an old furniture found in the barn, now by the subtle embroidery of a curtain forgotten in a trunk, than by the compact and reassuring roughness of linen, has decorated with care all the interiors. All this though mingled with a touch of minimal furnishings aimed at highlighting the beauty of the walls.
A glass and steel stairway will lead you at the first floor and from here you can reach one of the three rooms which the hosts made available.
La Casa delle Grottesche is surrounded by orchards cultivated using the biodynamic method.
It is located near Cavour center (about 2 Km), a small town halfway between Saluzzo and Pinerolo.
