If they talked, what would La Font’s Walls say??
They start telling that the core building of the Relais La Font (hosting the restaurant, caffeteria and rooms) was built in 1684. Almost four century, a very long time frame from the perspective of people, but very short here in the “Terre Alte” (high mouintain land). The building was the centre of the comunity of Chiappi Superiore, people accustomed to hard rural work following the pace of the season, a very cohesive community slowly dissapeared since the beginning of economic prosperity in the low landa round Turin.
The bulding hosted the first “Albergo Della Pace” owned by Maria Isoardi (grandmother of the current bulding owner beppe), closed in 1934 after her unexpected pass away.
Throughout its history, the building underwent many restoration.
In the early 2000, La Font was totally renovated in the full respect of the local “occitan” architecture, with wise use of larch wood and stone. La Font raises in the centre of Saret (Chiappi Superiore neighborhood as it’s known by the old local fellows), clearly identifiable by its radiant orange brick colour.
First feeling upon entering is relax, peace, old time souvenir, and chill out atmosphere.
La Font offers 4 rooms for its guest, each one ables to accomodate up to 4 guest. Each room is provided with a private bathroom (with shower stall) and a balcony directly overlooking the famed San magno shrine.
La Font is equipped with a 40 place restaurant (natural wood and stone and a wood-stove giving warmth and atmosphere) and a caffeteria with an external terrace in the rear of the building overlooking grassland and forest.
Our cuisine boasts north-west Alp food tradition, with full use of local zero Km vegetables and meat products. Our pride is to home-made produce every single dish we offer to our guest, starting from the bread and going to our famous Ravioles (Gnocchi with local cheese Castelmagno in the mixture, served with local fresh cream and frothing butter)
