Why did we call our B&B IL PINO (the pine tree) in a park surrounded by larches?

Finding a name for our B&B was not easy…

We wanted to dedicate it to my parents, because it’s thanks to them that we could realize this dream… so, one evening, I asked the sky to help me and from the sky the name arrived the next morning…

Pino was my dad’s nickname. He was called Giuseppe Vanini, a mountain man, born and grown up among the mountains of Devero. A doer of few words, who made sacrifices to let us live a comfortable life. He – who came from a poor family – dedicated his whole life to work, and thanks to his work now we can use our small house as a B&B and host tourists who love these mountains, and want to live in a quiet and simple place in close contact with nature.

But I also want to tell you about my mum, Pia, a smiling and cheerful woman, who used to work a lot too and was always ready to help us and our dad. I want to remember her happily collecting the firewood or the blueberries, or going fishing with my brother Roby, or when we walked together in Devero…

Now you know the reason why it’s thanks to my parents if the B&B IL PINO exists and why we want to plant a pine tree next to the house in a park surrounded by larches.
