Piedmont Tours - Piedmont Star - 'Piccolo'
Single Centre

Just a little shorter than our IPRC6 Piedmont Star tour, this single centre break based in the historic Canavese area close to Turin invites you to explore tasty Italy at its finest. Sample the ‘Strada Reale dei Vini’ and renowned Piemontese cuisine; pedal off to beautiful shallow lakes and tour where castles tower over outstretched vineyards in the foothills of the Alps. Turin is on the circular tour menu, if you fancy it – our route includes letting the train take the strain on the way there,so you can have a relaxed pedal back. With so much to choose from, it’ll be as natural as Piedmont’s stunning scenery to take time out for a ponder by the pool at your smart Patrican villa hotel.

Itinerary

     There is a choice of excellent circular rides exploring the historic towns and villages, castles, vineyards and wildlife-rich lakelands of Piedmont’s Canavese area. A train ticket is included for you and your bike to travel down to the famous city of Turin if you wish, so you can also enjoy a pedal back along the Po and take in historic Chivasso and Mazzé en route back to Romano Canavese.

     Your base on this holiday is the Relais Villa Matilde, a luxury 4 star hotel which sits in its own peaceful parklands in the centre of the medieval village of Romano Canavese. Elegant yet intimate, it blends wonderful Piedmontese history with modern day comfort and also offers a range of leisure facilities including an outdoor pool, a wellness centre and tennis court. Dining al fresco here is a treat to remember with real local flavours and wines a speciality.

Day One - Arrive, relax or explore
     Arrive and relax by the pool or take time to stroll around the historic gateways, palaces and castle fortifications of the town.

Days Two to Four - Choice of circular rides

Miles: 23-37 Kms: 35-60

Day Five - Depart after breakfast.

The circular rides:

     We offer a choice of 5 circular routes with distances between 23 and 37 miles (35 to 60 kms), with each ride carefully planned to make sure you see the best of the area and that you travel the distance you are most comfortable with.

     You can go with the flow of your energy levels southwards along the Dora Baltea river to the clear waters of Lake Candia, then enjoy superb vineyard views from the top of the Moraine hills, returning to Romano Canavese via the ‘Strada Reale dei Vini’ – the Royal Wine Route. Head up to the imposing castle towers of Ivrea and its little lakes, following the Franciscan pilgrimage route homeward or pick your way through kiwi and peach plantations on the return from Lake Viverone. The 9th century Castello Pavone is worth the climb and Pavone village, set on its rocky slopes offers Piedmontese Baroque at its finest. We think you’ll want to gear up and enjoy the cafés and culture of Turin too, so let the train take the strain and enjoy the pedal back along the Po river, then past some impressive castles and the charming small town of Chivasso.

     All of the routes offer excellent cycling and there are plenty of opportunities to stop for refreshments.
