What you will love about this home
It's a farmhouse which was built in around 1850. The house is situated in Val Thures in a tiny and typical village from this particular area in Italy called "Lause" (altitude 1700 m) which consists of 4 houses a chapel and a fountain. From Thures (the biggest village in the valley) it takes about 10 min by car on a dirt road to reach the house.
We have restructures the farm almost completely over the last 20 years trying to maintain as many of the original features as possible. It's rustic but there's everything you need to relax and have a great holiday. It's in a sunny position, very calm and in the middle of nature; heaven for mountain lovers!!
What you will love in the neighborhood
The valley of Thures isn't very well known as a holiday destination in the Alps e so there is very little traffic (apart from the shepherds, cows, sheep and marmots!!!) one of the particularities of the area is perhaps that it is possible to reach most mountain tops without equipment or having to be super fit!!!
Closest village for shopping, restaurants and bars is Cesana Torinese, 15 min by car. Mongenevre is 25 min drive, Briancon 45 and Turin 60 min.
My husbands mom was born in Cesana Torinese so we know the area (and locals!) really well!!! There are many things to do and see (with or without children) and we are very happy to help and make suggestions:)
