In the countryside of Turin, 10 minutes from Lake Candia, in the small town of Marcenasco, is Castello Benso.
The large and sumptuously decorated apartment is part of the castle, furnished with antiques and surrounded by a large park. The apartment has a good location to get to know Piedmont, visit Turin only 40 minutes by car and make a trip to the mountains.
Mercenasco is located in the hills and offers a direct contact with nature, which you can experience in the surrounding area on hiking trails. Be sure to visit the ruins of the church of S. Pietro.
If you go up the hills towards the capital, you will encounter a plateau surrounded by chestnut and oak woods. From there you will have an overview of the glacial moraines and the plain below.
