History, traditions, natural beauty: the fascination of the exceptional and unique

Favourite residence of King Victor Emmanuel II and his mistress, Rosa Vercellana, the royal apartments of the Castello della Mandria were conceived as a love nest for the couple. More than twenty fully-furnished rooms still bear witness to the bond of the first King of Italy to the Countess of Mirafiori e Fontanafredda (as she became). The Nature Park of La Mandria is immersed in an extraordinary landscape, surrounded by a perimeter wall that is among the longest and most imposing in Europe, and belongs to one of the most complex and important estates of Piedmont, where the beauty of nature is interwoven with the fascination of history.
