  • Google Maps: Simply enter ‘Matva Sei’ in the google maps app. These directions are fairly accurate, but we recommend you also read the directions below after entering the village of Lessolo.

Driving Directions from Milano Malpensa:

Drive towards Torino for about 1 hour. Take the exit (“uscita”) towards Aosta, and then to Ivrea. The toll-gate is ca 10 euro, self service. Keep right towards Ivrea.

At the first roundabout keep following signs to Ivrea. At the second roundabout start following signs towards Lessolo.

Inside Lessolo village, follow signs towards Valchiusella/SP68: keep left on the first junction, and drive through the old town. Turn right in front of the building with “Ristorante” painted on it (still following Valchiusella), and follow the long winding road up the hill, while passing some stunning viewpoints. Note that this last right turn is not announced as a turn by Google Maps, since you are still following SP68!

Blue signsAfter a particularly sharp bend you will turn left onto a very narrow road, indicated by a large blue sign (see picture) with many names on it (there’s another sign with “Truc del Dur” on the right side of the road). After just about 50 meters, keep left at the fork, and take the road down to the yellow house. This will take you to a very sharp bend, for which you need to reverse in order to continue down the small road. After passing the garbage bins, the road will be unpaved (and on Google Maps it ends here). Continue down this road while keeping right, until you see the entrance of Matva Sei! The gate is not locked, though is seems like it. Just open it and drive in to our parking space.

Driving Directions from the airport Caselle, Torino:

Drive towards Torino. Follow the indications to Torino for some minutes on the highway (no tollgate). Take exit, Uscita 3 to the right towards Gran Paradiso, Ivrea, Aosta. You are now off the highway.

Follow indications towards Rivarolo. You will pass roundabouts and villages. After 10-15 minutes you start to follow indications towards Castellamonte. Do not drive into Rivarolo centro. After having followed indications for 10-15 minutes more towards Castellamonte, you start to follow indications towards Ivrea. You drive through a lot of roundabouts on the way to Ivrea.

After you have passed through a tunnel and some more roundabouts, you will see the big shopping malls Bennet and Self on your right hand side. Continue to follow signs to Ivrea on the roundabout. From there, start following signs towards Lessolo at the next couple of roundabouts.
