I think that every house has a soul and each tells the story of the people who live there.
My name is Sara and Puntodivista is now my home, but even before that, it was my family’s home.
It is a beloved place that gives me peace, a place to return to, my touchstone.
Years ago, during a time of great change, I decided to come back to live on these hills, opening my house to guests from all over the world.
It has been a wonderful adventure that still excites and enriches me today thanks to all the people that I have met and all the stories that they had shared.
I love to think of Puntodivista as a place in which everyone can feel at home, even if you come from far away and a relaxing place in which you can rest.
Our bed and breakfast accepts animals of all sizes.
Ours is an ideal base for a relaxing weekend, close to the great Savoy capital of Turin. Rightly famed for its extraordinary historical cafes and its nightlife, the city also plays host to some of Europe’s finest museums.
The Egyptian Museum, and that of the Cinema, are amongst Italy’s most celebrated. Elsewhere the Royal Armery, the Sabaudia Gallery and the Antiquity Museum at the Madama Palace recall Turin’s imperial past. The Oriental Art Museum beautifully invokes another place and time, whilst the Automobile Museum pays homage to 20th century Turin’s industrial metamorphosis, and arguably its greatest achievement.
The city boasts enviable contemporary art galleries too. Chief amongst them are GAM, the stunning Gallery of Modern Art, and the magnificent 10th century Castle of Rivoli, nowadays a renowned contemporary arts centre.
Turin was Italy’s first capital, and our extraordinary Sabaudian Royal palaces are within easy reach. The imposing Stupinigi hunting palace, the exquisite Reggia at Venaria Reale, and the great castles of Rivoli and Racconigi evidence our royal heritage. The so-called “crown of delights” of XVIII century Savoy architecture, they are to provide the fulcrum when, in 2001, Italy celebrates the 150th anniversary of its unification.
Along the way from Puntodivista lies the Langhe area, the “land of flavours and wines”. Here, against a truly beguiling backdrop, you will find a vast array of gastronomic delights; a must for those who love Italy’s tastes and natural beauty.
We are immersed in an enchanting nature and we think it is our duty to preserve it.
We produce 6 kW of electricity, heat water with solar panels and collect the rainwater with which we irrigate our garden.
We also compost the organic waste, which is used to fertilize the lawn.
We use recycled paper and every day we strive to be more plastic-free.
80% of the cleaning products that we use are biodegradable and most of the breakfast products are organic and at Km 0…
And we are always setting new goals to reach!
