Strada Pralormo, 315, Carmagnola 10022 Carmagnola (Turin)
Practically everything has remained from the large farmhouse that was restructured into La Margherita Golf & Country Inn, the massive dark wood beams on the ceilings, the brick walls, the old farming equipment on display here and there, the floor of unfinished regular stone and old cotto tiles. You will breathe that country air sought and obtained by giving new life to the old farm.
Where stables, granaries and barns once stood, there is now the club-house with restaurant and bar on the swimming pool; tv, relax and games room. The charming meeting room which hosts two antique cars has conserved the original brick vaulted ceiling.
Besides the restaurant service, in a warm and sober ambient, there is a small lodge with twelve rooms and a few suites, From the windows of the rooms you can admire the entire Alpine arc, from the Maritime Alps to Monte Rosa.
Close to the Country Inn are situated Pralormo castle and the Casanova Abbey, Racconigi is close by with its marvelous royal palace, and further west Saluzzo offers its unspoiled arcades and squares and top quality antiques.
We are on the door of the magic triangle bordered by Alba, Dogliani and Bra. The Langhe hills offer a lot of attractions to the lovers of good food and wine: restaurants, wineries and international exhibitions like the "fiera del tartufo" (white truffle) which take place in Alba every year on October.
Everything about Turin reminds us that this city was and still is a capital. Evidence of its past can be found in the circle of splendid 17th century residences surrounding the city and the castles in the historic city center, with antique palaces hosting museums and galleries (the Egyptian Museum is the most important in the world after Cairo's).
Then Turin became the Italian car industry capital. Today, what was once the site of the steelworks at the beginning of this century has now been converted into an ultramodern exhibition center, the Lingotto: the only one of its kind in Europe, 20 kilometers by highway from La Margherita
