Happy to oblige! The town is called Chiaverano d'Ivrea. The hotel is Castello San Giuseppe, 10010 Chiaverano d'Ivrea (Torino); tel. 011-39-125-42-43-70, fax 011-39-125-64-12-78. It is a former convent on a hilltop with 17 gorgeous rooms, large garden and great views. Oh, and the hotel restaurant was absolutely fabulous! There was also a great local pizzeria just down the street. It is a great base to explore the Valle d'Aosta and Piedmont regions. As I recall, the room rates (in U.S.D.) are about $78 single, $108 double, with breakfast. The hotel was a bit difficult to find, but if you make reservations via fax, the hotel will send you pretty good directions.
