I give this B&B a rave review. They offer many services you'll never find at an Italian hotel. Two thumbs up. When in Piemonte, stay with them!
I stayed here during the Torino Olympic games. The bed and breakfast is in a beautiful area, near the village of Villa Franca-Cantarana. About a 1/2 hour by train from the Porta Nuova train station in Torino. They will pick you up at the train station in Cantarana upon request.
I stayed in a twin room the first two nights; the family room (1 queen bed)the last night. Both rooms were tastefully decorated, and the facilities provided catered to all my needs. The rooms were large with superb views. The beds were comfy. Bathrooms were ensuite. Breakfast consisted of cheeses, meats, yogurts, pastries, cakes, breads, and cereals.
Prices: €60 for twin rooms, €75 for family room. No discount for cash, but second visits are negotiable!
I liked the extra services provided, fee based-but reasonable. Services include: dropoff and pickup from train station, laundry, dinner on request with 24 hour notice.
The owners have extensive experience in the hotel-restaurant business. They provide a high service level, and speak English. One of the owners, Peggy, also speaks good Italian. They are well versed in local customs, and make people feel like part of the family. In Italy service like this is rare. You will love this place!
