We believe that Girba Farm is ideal for couples or families who want to relax in the midst of nature, could easily also enjoy many cultural sights. Destination not to be missed for lovers of fine food and wine.

The space

Wellcome!
The accomodation is a part of an old farmhuose.
On the first floor the bedroom (bed+sofà) and the bathroom . On the ground floor we have the diningroom.
A kitchen is avaible if you need it.
Recently renovated to bring it on the old fashion and to up to date conforts.
A private garden and large spaces for children complete the location.

In the past the house was lived by monks and around it was built a hamlet. In the wood a lot of trails to achive the Park of the Avigliana's Lakes, the monastry of Sacra di San Michele and the Garden REA of Giaveno.

In 5 minutes is possible to achive the nice cities of Giaveno and Avigliana (by bus or by car). From here in 20 minutes you can be in the center of Turin (by train - the ticket costs 2.40 € and there is free Parking at the train station).
You are also close to the Olympic Mountains of Valle di Susa where we had the Winter Olympic Games 2006.

Driving for few km you can arrive in interesting places such as Langhe or Monferrato where you'll find the best italian wines.
Piedmont, and Langhe in particular, is one of the regions where italian food and wine are excellent. We can recommend good restaurants close to us where the relationship between the price and the quality of food and wine is excellent.

As hobby, we are beekeepers, so you could taste our organic honey.

We had a fantastic time staying with Mauro and Lory! They made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to meet our needs. It was very hot during our stay but Mauro was kind enough to buy a fan for us which really helped. We shared a delicious Italian meal with them made from local produce and wine and we really enjoyed their company and of course the food was delicious! Our girls thoroughly enjoyed playing with their daughter Sofia and dog Ariel. We also enjoyed trying the wonderful honey they are collecting and learning about the art of bee keeping. It was my first trip to Italy and for sure I will be back! Thank you so much for everything Lory and Mauro, please keep in touch and come and visit us in Australia one day! Xxx

The old farmhouse apartment was even better than the photos. It was clean, very comfortable and stylish! We had everything we needed for the stay, a woodfire, comfortable couches and even a small drinks fridge to help ourselves, free of charge. Probably the best place we stayed at during our trip to Europe. Our hosts we very helpful and Arial the dog was lovely. Thanks agains Lory and Mauro!

Quiet location and very comfortable accommodation. Mauro and Lory made us feel so welcome after a long drive and we had two lovely nights in their apartment. The kitchen area is in a separate building away from the apartment but this wasn’t a problem for us as there was a kettle provided in the apartment. Very well equipped and beautifully decorated. Would definitely recommend a stay here

'Old farmhouse' just doesn't do this amazing place justice. A beautifully renovated and restored building with lots of character and every convenience. A unique location for any stay in the Turin area, lots to do in the immediate area too. Getting in to Turin is easy as described by Mauro. We were treated to the warmest welcome and were made to feel very much at ease. Mauro and Lory made excellent suggestions for trips, visits, etc. We will definitely return.

For 11 nights we stayed in the beautiful apartment of Mauro and Lory. Upon arrival, Lory welcomed us warmly with wine, beer, some food and showed us around the place. The apartment is roomy and tastefully decorated; sculptures and paintings give the rooms a nice atmosphere. The bedroom is airy (French doors to the balconies) and large. Everything was tidy and clean. (There even was a cleaning moment included during our stay) Very attentive gesture: Mauro had an extra lamp installed, because we ( both of us eager readers) inquired beforehand if there was a lamp available for that purpose… The (separated) kitchen is big, with refrigerator, coffee machine and microwave: two hotplates can be used for cooking. Not to be used for preparing a big meal, but why should you ? Going out for dinner is rather cheap: there is a very nice pizzeria/restaurant alongside the lake (2,9 km drive) and in the (nearby) historical center of Aviglana you’ll find an excellent slow food restaurant. The house is located in a nice, rural environment at the edge of a small hamlet ( barking dogs all around, but after a day you are totally unaware of their sounds) Visiting Torino by train (30 minutes), hiking directly from ‘home’ to the former Cortona cloister or to Sacra Saint Michael (impressive), walking around the two lakes and their surroundings are beautiful experiences. And do not forget to visit the old Roman remains in Susa (take the train in the opposite direction from Torino) and the many regional parks in the mountains, where you can walk without meeting a soul. In short: great place, very attentive hosts and a beautiful surrounding.

Mauro and Lory, and their daughter Sophia, are wonderful, generous and superfriendly and sensitive hosts. They offer you all the privacy you want, but are there to help you with suggestions and any question you could have. Their house is beautiful, large, with wonderful art and furniture. Even more beautiful than in the pictures. We really felt at home and hope to come back for a future holiday. From Avigliana it is very easy to visit Turino (by train!), and other interesting places. Highly recommended!
