Walk to Village Romantic

Named after one of the best known grapes of the Piedmont wine region, Villa Barbaresco offers stylish accommodation in a stunning setting surrounded by endless vineyard views and the glorious landscapes of the Langhe hills.

Set in a borgo of four charming villas and a heated swimming pool, Villa Barbaresco is tucked in the corner with a lovely garden and gorgeous covered terrace perfect for al-fresco dining on warm evenings. Whatever the time of year, take advantage of the chef who can be hired to prepare delicious meals using some of the finest local ingredients of this gastronomic region.

French doors lead to a spacious dining room with a romantic fireplace and an inviting living area for resting with a glass of Barbaresco wine. The designer kitchen is good enough for a chef with its high-end equipment whilst the impressive temperature-controlled wine cabinet stands proudly with a selection of drinks from the estate’s world-class winery. With a second lounge upstairs, there’s a refined yet relaxed ambience across this wonderful home.

Natural light pours in from the windows and two of the four pretty bedrooms feature balconies. The bathrooms are beautiful, there are even vineyard views from one of the showers, whilst exquisite attention to detail can be found across the home’s décor and furnishings.

Sit out on your patio gazing down the carefully tended garden towards the heated swimming pool which is shared amongst the four villas. Enjoy chef-prepared barbecues or take a picnic into the vineyards, wandering past lavender and hazelnut groves as you walk through the amazing estate.

Discover nearby restaurants and wineries, some within walking distance, and savour Piedmont’s delectable cuisine such as home-made tajarin pasta, Piemontese beef and hazelnut-based desserts, paired of course with wines from the Langhe, Roero or Monferrato hills. Discover more regional produce at Farmer’s markets dotted around local villages and towns or sample some famous white truffles whilst dining in the exquisite town of Alba, only 9km away.

The borgo’s concierge is ready to assist you with winery visits, cookery classes, autumnal truffle hunting or guided hikes as well as creating tailor-made activities to suit you and your friends or family. The level of service here is second to none, just another attraction of this unique holiday home – the perfect base to experience this magnificent and alluring region.

Experience the beautiful wine-region of Piedmont whilst staying at Villa Barbaresco, part of a borgo with three other houses and set in a wine estate with incredible vineyard views, just 9km from Alba.

You can go for walks through the glorious estate, passing vineyards, summer lavender and hazelnut groves, reaching as high as 300m in altitude. World-class wines are produced from these vines – guests can visit the owner’s winery for a tour if they wish, located around a 45-minute drive away.

There are a number of traditional restaurants and local wineries close by, including in the nearest village which is around 2km away - it’s possible to walk there in under half an hour if you don’t mind the hills. A little further by car you will find a grocery store and pharmacy just 5km away, as well as some delightful Farmer’s markets in villages and towns such as Gallo (6km), La Morra (6km), Alba (9km) and Bra (11km).

One of the main reasons visitors are attracted to this captivating region is its wine – this area produces the most DOCG (the highest quality in Italy) wines in the country. The borgo’s concierge can help arrange winery and vineyard visits – many of the excellent wineries are family-run and fairly small so appointments are usually necessary (book well in advance during the autumn harvest and Alba’s truffle fair). Look out for wineries producing not just the Barbaresco and Barolo labels from the surrounding Langhe hills but also lesser-known wines around Monferrato and Roero.  

The wonderful gastronomy of this region is another great draw whether you prefer to make the most of a private chef in your villa, dine in a local osteria or book ahead to one of the Michelin starred establishments that can be found around Alba and its surrounding villages. It’s not just Alba’s white truffles that will appear on menus but also home-made tajarin or agnolotti pasta, hazelnut based dishes, marinated veal, Piemontese beef and some wonderful regional cheeses.

Take time to savour your meals – after all, this is where the slow-cooking movement originated from. Indeed, there’s a relaxed pace of life across this part of Italy – shops tend to close early afternoon, a perfect time for a hike through the vineyards with a picnic or a cycle ride through the stunning countryside. There are many medieval villages and towns to discover, museums to visit, castles to admire and outdoor activities to enjoy.

This is also a great base for spending the day in Turin, the first capital of Italy and now a great city that changed so much in preparation for the Winter Olympics in 2006. There’s a vibrant cultural scene as well as many excellent restaurants and markets, not to mention historic sights and its picturesque riverside setting.

Region

The Piedmont region, nestled in the northwestern part of Italy, is a captivating destination that seamlessly combines natural beauty, historical charm, and culinary excellence. With its picturesque landscapes, rich cultural heritage, and diverse range of activities, Piedmont is a must-visit region that leaves an indelible impression on all who venture here.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

The slow-pace of life is perfect when travelling with children – go for family walks following vineyard trails, look out for medieval villages and castles in the surrounding landscapes and enjoy horse-riding through the countryside.

One of the nearest castles, just 3km away, is partly restored and offers guided tours during some weekends. There are also a couple of nice museums in two of the local towns around 12km away – head to Cherasco for the Museo della Magia, all about magic, or visit the child-friendly Museo del Giocattolo in Bra to learn about Italian toys from the past.  

Alba is another pleasant place to spend time as a family – go for cycle rides or walks along the Tanaro riverfront followed by a leisurely meal (this is the gastronomic capital of Piedmont) or just plenty of gelato. If staying in the autumn then look out for the famous donkey race, Il Palio degli Asini, at the beginning of the well-loved International White Truffle Fair.  

On hot summer days, the waterpark Cupole Lido is around half an hour by car with its slides and swimming pools.

Children may also love visiting the grand city of Turin with its riverfront setting, museums, parks and playgrounds. Football fans won’t want to miss a tour of Juventus FC’s Allianz stadium whilst animal lovers can head south of the city to Zoom, an amusement park and zoo.

Reviews

  • The most magical experience

    Created on 11/11/2020

    Where do we even begin. The borgo hosted our wedding 2 weeks ago, and it was the most magical experience we could have ever imagined. We had 45 people come and 34 of which stayed at the villas, it housed 34 extremely comfortably and could have probably hosted another 2-3 couple without issue. The villas are stunning, each with its own character and distinction.

    In addition to the beauty of the villas, the staff is out of this world. They catered to our every need and delivered on the easiest, most organized wedding we could have ever hoped for.

    I need to give a special shoutout to Katariina, she is absolutely the best. She was around 24/7 during the event and during the months leading up to the event. She went above and beyond and we will never forget it. We can’t wait to go back and see her and the villas again!!

  • A magical place

    Created on 11/11/2020

    A magical place to spend time with good friends during the truffle and wine festival in Alba! The villas are modern, spacious, beautifully appointed and the chefs kitchen is fantastic! The truffle hunt on the property was so much fun with Gianni! Our cooking class with Chef was a master class in making pasta and seafood risotto!
    Our Concierge, Katariina, is first rate and was always there for us. Every attention to detail was delivered and then some! She arranged for all of our activities for the festival as well as the private guide and tours to several amazing wineries! And her selection of superb restaurants that she made reservations for (and changed multiple times) to accommodate us were outstanding!!! Piedmonte region of Italy must be on your “bucket list”!
