Casa Parrocchia, a Villa in the heart of the Piedmont.
Located on the hilltop of the historic village Sale San Giovanni with a beautiful garden and spectacular views to the french and italian Alps, Casa Parrocchia offers every modern comfort.
During the restoration of this historic building the owners of Casa Parrocchia paid careful attention to the original features and details to create this fine home.
There are original wall paintings which were found in the restoration which have been preserved, in part a traditional stone sink and the original arches of the corridor lead you up the stone staircase to the first and second floors.
The downstairs area consists of a large handmade country kitchen (very well equiped with oven, fridge, freezer, blender, toaster, ice machine, nespresso coffee machine (pods needed for this), dishwasher, 4 ring stove, cooking utensils, hob) with a French door leading out to the garden and a balcony door from where you can access the long balcony alongside the house to enjoy the sunset and the beautiful views to the valley and mountains.
The living room has an open plan dinning area and is fitted with every comfort. The open fireplace invites you to enjoy cosy evenings in the winter months.
There is also a reading area with an extensive library, where you will find books and magazines about the area and its history. There is also an extensive DVD collection for family entainment.
Downstairs is also the first bathroom with shower and the first bedroom.
Following the arches upstairs, there are two more bathrooms, one with a large walk in shower, and the second with a bathtub.
5 remaining bedroom two with twin beds and 3 with double beds offer enough space for a large family or group of friends.
There is also a large formal dinning room (for 10 people) with a open fireplace. This room is mainly used for playing games at the large marble table or to have a relaxed discussion next to the fire.
Casa Parrocchia has a beautiful cosy garden where you can sunbath and relax. There are a lot of flowers and plants typical of this area. In the late autumn you can pick some fresh figs from the fig tree which is growing next to the Pergola.

We are approximately 45 minutes from the nearest ski area which lies in the upper Val Maudagna, in the heart of the Maritime Alps. These are the resorts of Prato Nevoso, Artesina and Frabosa. They are connected to the Mondole Ski area, where you can ski without having to take your skis off. Artesina lies at 1,500 m and Prato Nevosa 1.300m. Because of their close distance from the sea they enjoy a micro climate and have short heavy snowfalls, so there is generally plenty of snow. There are over 130 km of runs for all standards of skiers. There are also 3 cross country ski runs just 4 km away from Sale San Giovanni. They are well prepared and it is also possible to hire snow shoes and trekking equipment.
