Considered among the most beautiful in Italy, the Castello di Pavone is an ancient fortress now restored to accommodate a 4-star hotel restaurant not far from Turin. The Castle offers classic rooms, furnished with furniture, paintings, frescos and decorations of prestige and, to complete the accommodation, a fine restaurant mentioned in the most important wine and food guides.
Castello di Pavone History
That of Pavone is the castle par excellence, that corresponds perfectly to the ideal image linked to this name: impressive, majestic, regal with its crown of battlements that runs along walls and walkways, secret passages, watch towers, loopholes and, inside, sumptuous showrooms, intimate alcoves and the indelible imprint of the passage of heroic knights and sovereigns. A fairytale place dating back to the year 859, built to defend the village of Pavone Canavese against the raids of Hungarians and Saracens and which boasts illustrious names among its owners: the Ottone, King Arduino and, more recently, the Savoy.
After the philological restoration of the architect Alfredo D'Andrade operated in the eighties of the twentieth century, today the castle is a prestigious seat of a hotel, in which the original structures are combined with mastery to modern needs.
The rooms are thirteen in all and among these are preferred those that lead to the romantic courtyard with a well. The furnishings are antique or in keeping with the style of the dwelling.
The restaurant is also of the highest quality, a company that has been renowned for years for its pleasant cuisine, where Piedmontese and Mediterranean flavors blend in original combinations, accompanied by the most important regional and Italian labels. Nor should be forgotten the charm of the setting, divided into aristocratic rooms beautifully decorated and adorned with precious objects.
