Surrounded by a large garden, and only a few minutes walk from the centre of Oulx, Residence Cascina Genzianella is a relaxing place to spend your mountain holidays whether in winter or summer.
Opened in July 2002, la Cascina was an old farmhouse that has been completely renovated. It has 5 studio apartments and 5 two roomed apartments, all furnished in pinewood. On the ground floor there is a light and airy bar/sitting room where breakfast is served. There is large private parking both covered and uncovered. In addition, the ample grounds have chairs and benches for picnics or relaxation.
The studios and apartments are available on a Bed and Breakfast or self-catering basis. There are many local shops and restaurants within easy walking distance of Residence Cascina Genzianella.
Residence Cascina Genzianella is just 10 minutes drive from the ski resort of Sauze d’Oulx, the start of the famous Milky Way (Via Lattea) skiing area and the resorts/areas of Sestriere, Pragelato, Bardonecchia, Claviere, Cesana Torinese, San Sicario and Montgenevre are all within striking distance. A little further afield is Serre Chevalier, Cervinia, La Thuile, Courmayeur and Pila.
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.
