In Summer

The Genzianella is in the Susa valley. The area is a mecca for road cyclists attempting mountain stages (even the Tour de France one from Gap to Pinerolo via Sestriere) and mountain biking. There are many routes through and across the mountains with marked trails. For those that love the Alpine life, walking trails are numerous and offer you the chance to spot wild alpine flowers in their native habitat, animals from marmots to ibex and soak-up the healthy mountain atmosphere.

At all Times

Day trips are easy to Turin. Both train and car take about one hour and give you the opportunity to see Turin’s many museums and historic sites along with markets and, of course, sample the culinary delights of Turin’s many cafes and restaurants. The fortified French town of Montgenevre is a short drive away as are the forts of Exilles and Fenestrelle plus many local Italian towns offering good wine and food, festivals and activities.
