Our B & B, Cascina Salet, can be found on the regional border between Piemont and the Aosta Valley. We are about 15 km North of Ivrea in the village of Quincinetto.
The guest rooms comprise of three rooms (Erica, Ilaria and Sara) with a reserved bathroom. There is also a kitchen, separate dining-room with breakfast terrace, garden and private parking.
Dipped in the tranquillity of the characteristic vines (tÚpie), producing Piemontese wines, Cascina Salet strives to support the gastronomic and cultural life of the Southern Aosta Valley.
For those interested in the history of the region we can offer an area rich in historical medieval castles and Napoleonic fortresses, such as the great Fort De Barde.
For the more adventurous why not try ski Ė alpine trips on the Mont Rosa, or trekking and mountain bike in the splendid routes of the Walloon of Scalaro, Colma of Mombarone and Valchiusella.
For Rock Climbers there is a great deal of local bolted rock climbing routes (Arrampicata) around Cesnola, Tavagnasco, Paretone di Machaby, Topo Pazzo of Arnad and the magnificent Lomasti pillar. We can supply a local rock climbing guide which features over 500 routes in the Aosta Valley, many within 15 drive of Cascina Salet.
Several Via Ferrata (Iron Way) routes, of varying grades are within 40 minutes drive of the front door.
Cascina Salet is also ideally placed for a stop over for those attempting the arduous GTA trekking routes that surround the Aosta Valley.
You can enjoy a very relaxed vacation in the open air, in an atmosphere of typical Piedmontís peasant life, among domestic animals, scents and aromas of the Piemont countryside.
