The space
The house is located inside an estate called "The two walnut-trees", constituted by 4 hectares of fenced ground and 3 real estate ownerships: besides her "Den of the dormouse" proposed, there are in fact a secondary house of medium dimensions, “The house of the swallows" and a drier in stone, "The nest of the blackbird".
The surrounding ground the lodging is cultivated with fruit trees of all the types (apples, pears, peaches, khaki, plums, pears, kiwi, etcetera) and plants of brushwood (blueberries, currant), besides it is also constituted by a wooded part crossed by a small river.
The house is full of light and with a fascinating sight on the mountains and the woods that surround it.
It is a large two-storey house consisting of large rooms.
On the ground floor there are:
- a large kitchen, also equipped with a wood-burning stove, with a large oval table where you can comfortably eat up to 10/12 people;
- a very large living room, with a fireplace, connected to the large kitchen;
- a complete external bathroom also used as a laundry;
- large livable entrance, with large windows, which is accessed, by means of a comfortable staircase, on the first floor.
On the first floor there are:
- three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, one of which is in one of the bedrooms;
- a large living room which leads to the three bedrooms and a bathroom.
The house is equipped with independent heating and a TV set in the large living room and in one of the three bedrooms.
As for the outdoor spaces directly related to the accommodation, there are very private dehors in front of the kitchen and the entrance below, equipped with tables, chairs and deckchairs.
Since 2000, this is our family's vacation home, in which, over the years, objects, photographs, books, documents and various materials have flowed from our life experiences and, above all, those of our parents. The guests, therefore, will also be surrounded by this "personal world" of ours, which we have decided to share according to the more original spirit of Airbnb, while continuing to reserve calendar dates for our stays. We trust in the respect of the guests of our things.

Guest access
Guests can have access anywhere, whether in the ground outside the estate (4 hectares in total) or in the spaces inside the house.
Guests can gather to eat any fruit from any tree or bush that is inside the estate.

Other things to note
In case of abundant snowfalls, it needs to leave the car in front of the gate of the estate that is at around 30 meters from the house.
The access in the house will be guaranteed however.

The directions are: autoroute Torino-Savona; you have to exit at Mondovi and in the traffic circle you have to follow immediately the direction Cuneo. You go straight in the main road. When you pass under a tunnel you have to go right and to follow again the direction Cuneo. You go straight in the main road for a ten km. Now you keep attention because you have to turn left when you find the indication Pianfei. Now you go straight in the main road and in the traffic circle you follow The indication Chiusa di Pesio. Now you go straight in the main road for a few km and when you arrive in front of the first town which is Chiusa Pesio you go straight having the river (Pesio) on your right. At the second deviation which is at the beginning of a climb you turn right. Now you are in flat road with curves. At the end of this road you turn left and go straight in a light climb which is a back; at the end of it you have on your right the indication "Via Provinciale Pradeboni", "Piancampo", "Trattoria della Posta". You have to follow this indication and you are now in a climb with curves. You will find a double curve sharp bend (and on the right the indication "Cascina Scauret) and after a light straight climb with light curves: you will see a green house on the left, a red/stones house on the right, the indications "Tetto Maccagno" and "Tetto Pullanza" on the left. Now you have to keep attention because the next deviation on the left is "Borg. ROVINA" and you have to stop immediately in front of it, to turn left and you are arrived: if you move your face on the left you see an open wood front door with the number 16. That is your location!

In winter in the Park can be made some beautiful walks with the ciaspoles or can practiced the ski leading on a beautiful footstep that the whole park crosses or you can go in different skiing stations that are at about 30' by car to practice downhill skiing (Artesina, Frabosa, Prato Nevoso, Limone).

Ciao, siamo due sorelle e siamo molto contente di essere entrate a far parte della community di Airbnb! Siamo presenti con due proposte diverse, entrambe legate alla nostra vita: - a Genova, nel cuore pulsante della città, mettiamo a disposizione due camere in quella che è stata la casa in cui abbiamo vissuto per molti anni con i nostri genitori, all'epoca dell'Università, e dove nostra madre vive ancora, soprattutto nel periodo invernale; - nella Valle Pesio, offriamo due case indipendenti all'interno di una proprietà con quattro ettari di terreno ricchi di fiori, piante ed alberi da frutta, dove trascorriamo da sempre una parte delle nostre vacanze estive e invernali. A tutti il nostro più caro benvenuto! Hi, we are two sisters and we are very happy to be part of the airbnb community! We offer you two very different options, both related to our lives: -  in the heart of Genova we have two rooms available in the house in which we lived in up to our years at university and in which our mother still lives (mainly in the winter season); -  in the Pesio Valley (Piedmont region, Cuneo province) inside a vast property, we have a property, with four hectares of land and two independent houses inside surrounded by a variety of flowers and fruit trees, where we have always spent a part of our summer and winter holidays. We extend to you our warmest welcome!
