Trip Report Turin, the Piedmont, and Lake Orta

Jump to last reply

As always, I want to thank all the Fodorites who helped me plan this trip. Special thanks to stracciatella who recommended Saachi Residense in Turin (fantastic place to stay) and to stu tower for suggesting we stay on Lake Orta (my new favorite place).

Quick overview of the trip with lodging:

Turin (9 nights) -- Residence Saachi, wonderful apartment-hotel, not only did we have a spacious, fully-equipped apartment but also maid service daily, a real gem

Alba (5 nights) -- La Terrazzo Sulle Torri, very friendly owners run this apartment B & B with 3 lovely rooms, beautiful private terrace, and incredibly amenities such as an exfoliating bath glove and special Morrocan soap, lovely stay

North of Asti (4 nights) -- Agriturismo Tenuta Polledro, another terrific B & B run by a very friendy owners who made us feel as if we were part of their family

Lake Orta (4 nights) -- Hotel Giardinetta, our balcony overlooking the lake gave us unforgettable views of the lake and all its different moods from morning to night

We rented a car in Turin and returned it at Malpensa Airport. We rented from Auto Europe for the first time and were very pleased with the car, the price, and the easy pick-up and drop-off.
