Prepare to have your breath taken away, for every corner of this establishment tells a story that spans centuries, immersing you in a rich tapestry of history and heritage.

The Story

The Castello di Pavone hotel is a short drive from Turin and very near Ivrea – site of the famous Battle of Oranges Carnival.

The awe-inspiring inner walls of the castle enclose a medieval hamlet and an 850 AD church. They'd been left to decay for centuries, so the job of restoring everything to its former glory was enormous.

It took over six years of hard work and lots of bureaucratic hurdles to be overcome before this landmark luxury hotel could open, fulfilling the owner's dream of creating a haven that exudes authenticity and faithfully captures the essence of its historical era. Stepping onto its premises feels akin to stepping into a time machine, transporting you to a bygone age.

The hotel's commitment to providing an extraordinary experience is evident in its service, which surpasses the expectations of a mere four-star establishment and rivals that of a five-star luxury hotel. Every aspect of the hotel, from the guest rooms to all other spaces within, is adorned in period-style furnishings, while still offering the modern comforts of life, including air-conditioning, satellite television, and a well-stocked mini-bar.
