A rare example of Art Deco Architecture - Rigorous refurbishment completed in 2012 in a building of the early 20th century (1923) overlooking the Po River , in the historical village of San Mauro Torinese. (Turin) From its terrace you can see an amazing view of the entire landscape of the Alps, the hills of Turin, the Basilica of Superga, the gentle bend of the river.

Turin's city center is just a few minutes by the bus, or through a romantic bike path that runs along the river, starting from the Piazza just downstair the house. Shops, restaurants, a small supermarket a few steps. The flavor of a medieval village just minutes from Turin City center.

The House is an individual four floors building all served by a beautiful spiral staircase or by an internal elevator; therefore each room is also fully accessible to disabled people with wheelchairs. The entrance is at street level with a large iron gate and a small courtyard in which is possible to park a motorbike or bicycles. On the ground floor there is an entrance hall with a large wardrobe, a laundry room with washing machine and sink, a bathroom with shower.

On the second floor is situated a large kitchen, with a table for 4 people and a lovely relaxation area, easily convertible into a bed for one extra person, when needed. The third floor is the bedroom , furnished with a gorgeous double bed and with his own second elegant bathroom with shower as well. In this room is wall mounted a TV LED 37 " with all Channels of SKY television to comfortably watch TV from the bed. On the fourth floor there is the living area, with a beautiful terrace overlooking the village, an unique - 180 degrees view of the Torino Hill, the River Po, Turin and the frame of the Alps.You can take a break watching movie/or HD TV Home cinema 60" screen. Blu ray player , 5+1 Yamaha surround System, Marantz 50 +50 Stereo System, CD, turntable with a Vintage collection of 60-90 LP are completing the full set.

I would recommend this location to anyone is looking for a romantic holiday in a residence of the past completely out of the "regular" accommodation, but at the same time to reach the city center in a few minutes by bus, by bicycle or by your own car. A large public parking is available just below the house.

It's very easy to get from all direction : from Highway A4 - tangenziale Torino, exit San Mauro. (2 km) By bus : from Porta Nuova train station take the bus 61, from Porta Susa Train station take the bus 57. Both of them have stop 50 metres from the house. From Turin Airport it takes 15 minutes by taxi, or using the shuttle train airport - Turin City center then taking one of the two bus lines just mentioned.

The North West Italy region

Visiting Turin means to go on a tour of the city's historical centre taking in the museums and foundations that reconstruct its history and reveal its artistic and cultural treasures. This includes Europe's largest collection of archaeological finds at the Egyptian Museum, or the more recent history of the 'seventh art' brilliantly presented at the National Museum of Cinema, the exceptional treasure of ancient art held in Palazzo Madama, and then of course, Palazzo Reale, the powerhouse behind Italy's very first capital.

Turin is also a vital point of reference for contemporary art: works and installations produced over the last thirty years by internationally famous artists are placed for all to see in the open air or on display at the country's most important Museum of Contemporary Art within the 17th century Castle of Rivoli.

The mainly baroque art of the many places of worship in the town's centre blends with the spirituality to be found therein: the Sanctuary of the Consolata and the Sanctuary of Maria Ausiliatrice are a couple of Turin's best loved churches. Other places that are a must are the Duomo where there will be held the Ostension of the Holy Shroud in the spring, the twin churches in Piazza San Carlo, and the Church of San Lorenzo with its famous dome by Guarini or the Basilica of Superga which, as well as holding the tombs of the Savoy family, also offers a breathtaking view of the city and mountains. Lastly, just a stone's throw from the city centre, palaces, castles and fortresses dominate the hills, plains and mountains of the province of Turin. These are of inestimable value and some of the most outstanding are the Royal Residences, a legacy of exceptional cultural and environmental interest, leading to their denomination as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

Turin

The town of San Mauro is located a few kilometers from Turin city center (8 km away ) and is located at the foot of the northern slopes of the hill of Turin, dominated by the Basilica di Superga. A part of the town is on the left side of the Po, the oldest is instead located on the right bank, along the old road that once connected the Porta Praetoria of Turin (located in today's Piazza Castello) and the Roman Industry (the 'current Monteu da Po) with Valenza and Casale Monferrato.

The first written document in which it appears the town of San Mauro returns the name of the Pulchra or Pulcherada Rada (literally "beautiful beach" or "beautiful bay", a name that probably originated by the beauty of the place that was once the bed of the Po and dates back to May 4, 991: it states that Anselm, Marquis of Monferrato, is committed to rebuilding the abbey of Benedictine monks destroyed during an invasion of the Saracens.

Only a few testimonies have come to us with the splendor and power of the ancient Benedictine Abbey of San Mauro: the central apse and the left side of the nave of the parish church , formerly the abbey church, the bell tower and the lower part of the Chapel of the Madonna .

The parish church of Santa Maria is located in the center of the village 's oldest town, in a higher position , just 50 metros far from the house. The nave and the facade is in Baroque style and was restored in 1665 thanks to Abbot commandatario " Petrinus Achemius ." The old building , already revolutionized between the twelfth and fourteenth century, was greatly upset and then present it is very difficult to try to reconstruct their original forms . It is likely that the building has been built between the late tenth and early eleventh century. Characterize the deep mullioned windows , originally blind , divided by pilasters , each topped by three blind niches .

On the left side of the facade rises the bell tower built between the XII and XIII century high mullioned windows side by side.
