On top of a hill, with a waterfall as its backdrop, is Torre Scilano, a unique alpine chalet surrounded by the natural beauty of vineyards and mountains. Charming, original and incredibly romantic, this is a very inspiring place.
The chalet is a labour of love of its architect-owner and it has been featured in several interior design magazines over the years. The accommodation is quaint yet luxurious, the surroundings are nothing short of stunning, and the setting, on top of the remains of an ancient town buried by a landslide in 1618, is as historic as it is picturesque. If you’re looking for somewhere different then you’ve found it.
Piuro is located in the Valchiavenna Valley, an alpine region to the north of Lake Como in the Italian province of Lombardy. It’s a very special region, naturally beautiful and full of recreational activities, cultural heritage and mouthwatering local produce, and from your base here you can easily organise day trips to the pretty villages dotted along Lake Como, to Saint Moritz in Switzerland or to the town of Chiavenna with its fine boutiques and historical buildings. In summer you can enjoy hiking, rock climbing and mountain biking as well as canyoning, fishing, golf and tennis, and in the winter months you can ski and snowboard to your heart’s content. Make sure you visit some of the nearby natural caves and sample the local cheeses, cured meats and wines.
The closest international airports are Milano Malpensa (162km), Milano Linate (126km) and Bergamo Orio Al Serio (106km).
