Welcome to the country estate of the marquises Doria Lamba, where you will have the opportunity to spend a pleasant stay in comforting rooms with breakfast service or in the apartments for longer time.

At our guests disposal: bicycles, heated swimming pool, tennis court, park for long walks and coach trips.

The house, for its special charm, has been chosen by Mr. Bono, leader of the rock band U2, during his long stay in Turin for the rehearsal of the 2010 European Tour, and ha has subsequently declared that he was delighted about the stay.

Inside the villa, that is elevated on three storeys, the Baroque hallway shows up, which forms the main entry, overlooking on the boulevard of hornbeams that gives access to the complex and the saloon overlooking on the park with the secular boulevards that reach up to the little pond. On the first floor, the neoclassic dance saloon, having an egg-shaped plant, with painted pilasters walls and a rich mosaic floor of polychromic marbles, with a design of palagiana-shaped scales, inspired to the Roman imperial architecture.

In the annex of the Villa, small and great apartments are at one’s disposal for B&B or for rental over longer periods. In the ancient 'Bigattaia' (place of breeding of the silkworms), an always historical dwelling, the lately completed rooms for B&B, result of an accurate high-level renovation, combine the actual comfort to the charm of the ancient environment. The furniture in good taste makes them particularly pleasant and cosy.

A very big Piedmontese park opens out in front of the villa: a flat, solar and happy lawn bordered by small woods composed by groups of ancient trees: Ashes, Maples, Planes, Pines of Austria, Scots Pines, Thuja, Magnolias, Limes, Liriodendri, bald Cypresses, Hornbeams, Hollies and beautiful and strong Oaks.
The prussian gardener Xavier Kurten was the author of it; he was gardener of the royal dynasty and author of the big park of the royal castle of Racconigi and Pollenzo.
The park of the Tower that is extended for over 20 hectares is the greatest of the private parks planned by Kurten and after 175 years we can admire the project of its design (dated March 25th 1835) and the enchanting result.
The big oaks in the plain and the enormous bald Cypresses on the shores of the lake are certainly the anchor points of this elegant romantic park.
A small house, the one of the gamekeeper, closes the most distant angle of it, while a rare Ha-Ha let the sight to continue as far as the eye can see, replacing itself to the closings. An icehouse and an artificial hillock are the typical elements of that age.
The gorgeous collection of Hydrangeas of the hatchery of Anna Peyron must be mentioned.
A happy family of geese has found its place on the lake, and a small flock of calm and dignified rare sheep of Holland trim day after day the grass.
The park of the Tower is enumerated among the great Italian gardens, an association that gathers, among the others the botanical gardens of Villa Taranto, the gardens of Villa d’Este, of the triestine castle of Miramare, of Ninfa and of the Quirinale.
