Set within the truly special UNESCO World Heritage listed landscape of the Piedmont wine region, Villa Freisa affords its guests a stylish and ideally located stay. Nestled atop a hillside village and bordered by other spacious holiday homes, this delightful villa offers breathtaking views across the stunning vineyard valleys – always a welcome distraction on a day spent lounging by the swimming pool with a glass of local wine. 

Villa Freisa is pleasingly well-appointed throughout, with thoughtful design touches that guests will be sure to appreciate. From the distinctive artworks on the interior walls to the shaded terrace that adjoins the large and sun-drenched garden, everything lends itself to Italian good living coupled with modern flair. All bedrooms have their own bath or shower room and all first-floor bedrooms feature air-conditioning, whilst the library area, gym facilities and the games table down in the rustic wine cellar can be enjoyed by all, offset by an interior that features vaulted wood and brick ceilings, terracotta floors and gorgeous mosaic surfaces.

Just one of the many benefits of Villa Freisa is that the accommodation is laid out over two self-contained houses, both adjoining the villa’s large garden, with the smaller of the two properties featuring its own kitchen, bathroom with shower, and a double bedroom that boasts superb views of the surrounding landscape. 

Spend peaceful days on the terrace by the pool and enjoy al-fresco lunches that make the most of seasonal artisanal produce on offer at the village farmer’s market. We recommend you light up the barbecue to enjoy the local chargrilled meats and vegetables and bring out their perfect flavours to the fullest! 

For an easy day out, you can spend time taking a stroll in the nearby castle grounds, replete with garden maze and parkland, before sampling some of the world’s finest wines at a local tasting, all just a short walk down the hill. 

Within the village itself are eateries, a supermarket and pharmacy, with several gourmet shops, historic chapels and churches also in the local vicinity. A five-minute drive away is the hamlet of Cantavenna, which owing to its location at the very edge of the Piedmont Hills affords panoramic vistas. The view takes in both lush green hillsides and Italian rice fields, which when flooded create a unique sea-like landscape that is magical to behold. 

A half hour drive away in the direction of Turin is the town of Chivasso. Here you will find an impressive gothic cathedral, an eighteenth century palace and an ancient ruined tower, all of which sit happily among the modern conveniences of shopping centres, bars and restaurants.

Located in the famed Piedmont region of northern Italy and around an hour east of the refined charms of Turin, Villa Freisa sits in the hillside of a small medieval hamlet, where traditional balconied houses feature throughout the neighbourhood and its hilltop location benefits from glorious views of the surrounding landscape.

Whilst you can always take in the wonderful vistas from the comfort of the villa, you can also enjoy the best of both worlds, since it is only a few minutes’ walk from the village restaurant/ bar with its equally stunning terrace views! In addition, there is the local historic castle, also a short walk away, which boasts a garden maze, parkland and carp lake, all of which are ready and waiting for you to explore. 

Steeped in history and charm, the Piedmont region is of course famed for being a world class wine producing region, which guests at Villa Freisa can enjoy to the fullest by purchasing wines from the villa’s own private cellar! Of course, you can always take yourself down to the local castle and enjoy their expertly organised wine tastings in the castle grounds, which would make for a sumptuous and unforgettable evening.

For a freewheeling experience, you can explore the neighbouring historic villages that dot the hillsides by bike, renting them at the village castle and of course stopping along the way to sample the local culinary delights. Or soak up some city culture on a day trip to Turin, only an hour’s drive away, to discover its fine dining and architectural gems.

The region also features some excellent golf ranges for those in the mood to swing a club, such as Golf Club Living Garden around an hour away, near Biella. Less than a 2-hour drive from the villa is the style and sophistication of Milan, where some serious shopping can be had. For those hankering after a more tranquil day trip, the northern Italian Lakes and the legendary Ligurian coast are both around an hour and a half from the villa by car.

With regional delights including gorgonzola, tender beef and not to mention the finest wines, the whole of Piedmont is a gourmand’s paradise, so why not hop in the car and drive just 30 minutes to the nearby town of Casale Monferrato, where you can sample Piedmont cuisine al-fresco among the city’s baroque architecture. Just a little further at around 40 minutes away by car is Asti, steeped in fascinating military history. Or even take a gourmet safari to Alba, famed for its exquisite white truffles and Ferrero chocolates.
