This place fascinated us the first time we saw it. Waking up you watch the sunrise and relaxing in the evening one is grateful for this view that they can never have enough of. The choice of name sums up the pleasant feeling that is enjoyed here all year round.
Aiva means Acqua (Water), and it is from here that we would like to start: at the propriety there is a water source, for our way of life it is important that we maintain it, for the fields (agriculture, vegetable garden and the vineyard) and for the animals.
The name Aiva also summarises 4 significant words for us:
Aria (Air) because here (we are 505 m. above sea level, at the hill of San Secondo of Pinerolo) the air is clear. Incanto (Enchainting), because from here we enjoy an incredibile view over the plains which extend to Turin and eventually to Cuneese. Vacanza (Holiday), because we invite you to spend some days here to relax, in contact with nature and in a sustainable environment. Agricoltura (Agriculture), because we enjoy cultivating the Vineyard, the orchard, and the vegetable garden, which provides us with healthy products which are good all year round.
Aiva is also biological: a holiday here is a unique experience where a healthy and environmental friendly house is offered. Solar panels for the production of hot water, photovoltaic panels for electricity, water tanks for the collection of water for irrigation and, above all, interiors made from natural materials good for ones health and the environment.
You are free to spend your time at the gorgeous property, walking in the vineyard, observing bunches of grapes and the flowers in the fields, building huts in the wood, admiring trees and see houses, roads and towns from a distance without renouncing benefits and conveniences of modern technology.
Barbara and Casa Aiva are delightful! We are a family of five (parents and 3 sons) living in Germany, so we drove to Pinerolo. We encountered much more traffic than anticipated, which pushed our arrival back to 23:00. I kept Barbara informed, and she was both quick to respond and understanding of the situation. She met us in the driveway with a big smile and showed us how everything worked. The apartment was large, scrupulously clean, and well-equipped for our needs. The countryside setting is dreamy if you love falling asleep and waking up to the sounds of the bells on the local goats (which we do!) Barbara is a lovely person, and we hope to return for a longer stay when it's warmer, and we can lounge around the pool.
Hello Barbara, we would like to thank you for such a magical stay. The view was breath taking and the property and pool were truly amazing. We enjoyed every second of our stay!! The home was so cosy and welcoming we felt right at home. We hope to see you soon. Richard, Alessandra & William
