The castle was renovated and turned into a hotel and restaurant. However, whatever could be kept of the medieval structure was left intact. You could get lost on the inside of the buildings with its many hallways and secret pathways. Pictures of the predecessors of the castle looked down from the walls of every room and I swear I heard a ghost at night, rattling in the hallways. Hmmm?
The towns below are Pavone and Ivrea.
View from the castle.
Dinner and breakfast were served in a vaulted cellar.
Very romantic and special. Who knows, my next novel may take place in the Piedmont in Italy!
