Arrival by your own means at the structure. The Castle of Pavone is a period dwelling situated on the hills of the Canavese area, which combines environments of great historical charm to the warmth of the welcome.
After settling in, you can enjoy dinner in the internal restaurant, in one of the halls and dining rooms beautifully decorated and furnished with splendid Savonarola chairs, precious rugs, china and crystals, to enjoy an exceptional menu based on local products.
Overnight at the Castle.
2° day – Saturday
After breakfast, transfer to the Castle of Masino, a FAI property( Italian Environment Fund), which stands on a hill overlooking a Morainic barrier of the Serra of Ivrea and on the hill of the Canavese area.
The Valperga family decided to build the castle in the eighteenth century, and who lived there for ten centuries. The last descendant of the solid family, the Count Luigi Valperga of Masino, donated it to FAI in 1988. The Ballroom is an opportunity not to be missed: its large windows create a perfect harmony between the external panorama and the frescoed interiors, and the collection of carriages, mostly of the nineteenth century, preserved in the Palazzo delle Carrozze… both of them are obligatory stops of the 90- minute guided tour which will lead you in 20 different premises, before leaving you free in the sumptuous Park, a perfect mix between the second half of the eighteenth century, with the typical labyrinth of the “ Italian-style” gardens, and the first half of the nineteenth century with an “English-model” an extraordinary scenic route called the strada dei 22 giri (literally “road of 22 bends”).
Upon return to the hotel, you can spend the evening in the restaurant for another suggestive dinner with the "Flavours of the Castle".
Overnight in the Castle of Pavone.
3° day – Sunday
Often used as film location, the Canavese territory boasts a castle for every village… and among manors, fortresses and stately homes, stands the Castello di Aglié, protagonist of the guided tour scheduled at the end of breakfast.
A holiday resort of the Royal Family, the castle of Aglié offers a path among reception halls, small living rooms, intimate boudoirs and glittering ballrooms, along with a walk in the Italian-style gardens and in the Romantic Nineteenth century Park.
Last stop of the Piedmont’s weekend will be at an important wine-producer.
After a guided tour to the winery, with walks in the vineyard (weather permitting), you will be offered a tasting of three wines - Spumante Brut Charmat method, Erbaluce of Caluso DOCG, Canavese Rosso – served and to be paired with salampatata (typical dish of Piedmont consists of pork sausage and boiled potatoes), cheese and pastries with Passito… as well as a small homage “tasting of the local delicate of the sweet raisin” for the farewell toast.
