You’ll find the Locanda di Sant’Antonio Abate (Saint Anthony Abbot Inn) in the heart of the medieval village of Viverone, in a XVII-XVIII century building built around a courtyard, lovingly restored and hand crafted by its owners in a totally unconventional way. It faces directly onto the ‘Via Francigena’ connecting, since the middle ages, Vercelli, Biella and Ivrea across the hill well known as Serra Morenica di Ivrea.

The whole ground floor is at your disposal, with two double rooms, one triple room, large living room (with a Castellamonte pottery stove), bathrooms, kitchen, lodges, gazebo, and garden with a wonderful view of the Alps from Susa Valley to Aosta Valley.

All the rooms have cedar wooden floors; the two of the south wing (lilac room and red room) have fireplaces: one of them has a coffered ceiling in walnut wood, the other one has a lunetted vaulted ceiling (both date back to XVII-XVIII century). The room of the north wing (unicorns room) has a Castellamonte pottery stoove and a four big unicorn head carved bed.

Some of the furniture was hand made by the owners, employing materials from the original building (wooden planks, iron nails, barrels...)
We recommend the inn to people who love a relaxing and cultural holiday. The owners will enjoy entertaining you with the history of the boundary land between Canavese and Biellese and also encouraging you to discover it, with the option of accompanied tours.

Friendly host, very interesting handmade artwork and carvings, comfortable bed and spacious clean bathroom. Regrettably no WiFi.

The property is fantastic! the owner is an artist and architect and there are many quirky features, he carves interesting features, fantastic drawings, a lovely garden to eat breakfast and supper, great kitchen and bathroom facilities and very close to Viverone Lake supermarket and a bakery 100ms from the property. Alessandro is a very welcoming host, a super breakfast left for us, a truly delightful place we will definitely go again. Our dog was very welcome too.

Acceuil extraordinaire. Tranquillité et générosité sont les maîtres mots de ce lieu. La maison a un charme fou et le talent d'Alessandro pour la décoration est bien réel. A recommander vivement.

Le B&B d'Alessandro est un régal pour les yeux et l'accueil exceptionnel de notre hôte nous permet d'apprécier encore plus la culture et l'art italiens. Après un petit déjeuner copieux et plus que varié, nous avons pu échanger avec Alessandro sur les sites les plus typiques à visiter dans la région. Il saura part sa générosité et son savoir vous guider pour effectuer des balades qui resteront inoubliables. Le seul regret est de n'y avoir passé qu'une seule nuit. Promis nous reviendrons car nous sommes restées sur notre faim. Merci encore Alessandro et j'espère à très bientôt. Fabiola et Marie Rose de Haute Savoie.

Camera degli unicorni. Camera pulitissima, vecchio stile, tutta un legno e con riscaldamento a stufa da alimentare; una volta accesa tempo 20’ e si scalda bene l’Ambiente, a parte il bagno che rimane gelido. Letto rigido ma per me comodo. Titolare molto gentile ed educato. La colazione invece varia ma un po’ scarsa, o meglio, io sono amante del salato e quando mi viene proposta la selezione di salumi vorrei trovarmi almeno 3/4 salumi e non solo il “culo” di un salamino. Oltre a questo c’erano tome (?), biscotti, frutta disidratata, frutta fresca, succhi di frutta, marmellatine e nutelline, pane e grissini oltre a caffè e the caldo. Il costo lo trovo un po’ eccessivo rispetto alla tipologia di camera e quanto offerto nella colazione.

The answer from the host:
Caro Francesco, mi spiace tu non abbia trovato il nostro BeB all'altezza delle tue aspettative. Trovo però un po' severi i tuoi giudizi (3 di colazione?!?..considerato che, oltre a ciò che già tu elenchi serviamo frutta fresca, pane e biscotti freschi della panetteria qui di fronte, oltre a the e caffè, ovviamente, e in abbondanza..). Al di là dei giudizi individuali, la maggior parte dei nostri ospiti si trova comunque molto bene, come attesta l'elevata media voti della struttura. Alessandro.

Soggiorno di una sola notte. Struttura veramente singolare, curata nei dettagli, calda e accogliente, come dormire catapultati in una stanza di un altra epoca, spazi ampi tutto molto particolare e a pochi minuti di auto dal lago raggiungibile anche a piedi. Ancora grazie ad Alessandro per la cortesia. Torneremo sicuramente.

È più di un B&B è un luogo proteiforme molto personale come Alessandro il gestore-architetto-artista-artigiano. Il rapporto qualità-prezzo è ottimo, come la gentilezza e la premura nei nostri confronti, un'esperienza unica e speciale.

Grazie della bellissima recensione, Lorenzo. Vi aspetto per il vostro prossimo soggiorno nel nostro Canavese. Alessandro.

Molto più di un B&B delizioso. È la casa di un poliedrico architetto-artista-artigiano, che la condivide con i suoi ospiti. Il rapporto qualità-prezzo è ottimo, grande la gentilezza dell'host. Veramente un'esperienza speciale.

Tranquillità del luogo, serenità nella gestione, particolarità e carattere nella struttura: consiglio il soggiorno da Alessandro sia che siate viandanti sulla Francigena, che ciclisti, che di passaggio per qualsivoglia motivo. Colazione abbondante, cucina a libero utilizzo, biancheria da bagno a disposizione. Chiamate il proprietario per ulteriori informazioni, é una persona che ha piacere a condividere in maniera diretta qualsiasi esperienza. Consigliatissimo, in qualsiasi stagione.

Proprietario molto disponibile. Buon livello di struttura. Manca un tocco femminile nei dettagli. Accoglienza ottima. Colazione abbondante. Soggiorno di relax.

Abbiamo trascorso qui una sola notte il weekend di Pasqua e ci siamo trovati benissimo! La struttura è caratteristica (una vecchia casa di pietra), ristrutturata anche grazie all'opera del proprietario "architetto-muratore" che ha curato tutto nei dettagli con un gusto che a noi è piaciuto molto. La posizione permette una suggestiva vista sul vicino lago e con pochi minuti i auto si raggiunge la strada provinciale o statale che collega il paesino con tutto l'intorno. L'accoglienza è stata cortesissima e non invadente, peccato essere rimasti una sola notte.

Ci siamo trovati benissimo e il B&B è forse uno dei più belli in cui abbiamo soggiornato. Peccato averci soggiornato solo un giorno.

Ci siamo fermati solo un giorno, ma il posto merita veramente. Gli spazi sono molto ampi, dettagli e arredamenti molto particolari, io ero con i bambini quindi avevamo preso entrambe le stanze per cui era come avere un appartamento. Molto grande tutto a nostra disposizione. Un grazie speciale ad Alessandro fin troppo disponibile.
