In the heart of Piedmont and Canavese, a few km from Turin and 6 km from Ivrea, is VISTATERRA, a 5-star hotel with 3 different restaurants, wine bars and merchants' court with local products, located in the ancient Castle of Parella, surrounded by a large noble park, an ancient vineyard and the Vivai Canavesani, created by the enlightened industrialist Adriano Olivetti.
The charming residence has been brought back to life thanks to a careful restoration of the Castle of Parella and its Stables. The 20 rooms (Superior, Deluxe and Suite) present modern and contemporary design details and the original architecture and materials of the aristocratic residence, with 17th century decorations.
The charming residence is flanked by a diversified catering offer that can be enjoyed in the recovered rooms of the ancient aristocratic residence.
The restaurant proposal starts from the territory, enhancing the quality of our agriculture, encouraging and promoting the consumption of local products.
Caffè La lettera is the place where you can enjoy a breakfast, a lunch break, an afternoon tea, an aperitif or a relaxing dinner through a simple, light and genuine culinary offer.
Alessio I Restaurant offers a refined cuisine that favors tradition and classic recipes that enhance the noble tastes of the ingredients without too many artifices, but with small touches of creativity.
Alle Volte wine bar proposes an enological itinerary in the ancient cellars of the Castle, to discover and savor the excellences of the territory and its DOC and DOCG wines, where the aromas of the wines meet the flavors of traditional dishes.
Moreover, there are the shops of the Court of Merchants, where you can find a choice that ranges from the Bottega dei Sapori, which hosts the food and wine products, to the Bottega del cioccolato (Chocolate Shop) up to the Bottega dell'artigianato e cosmesi (Craft and Cosmetics Shop).
Vistaterra offers its guests a full range of experiences during the day to discover the environment, culture, art and history of the Canavese area.
In the immediate future, Vistaterra will offer services and additional places of interest and experiences, including a Spa characterized by an architecture and a design made with eco-sustainable materials and structures with low environmental impact and a bathing bio-lake, which will cover a surface of 2,500 square meters
