It sometimes seems that the Piedmont region is overshadowed by it’s more well known Tuscan cousins when it comes to superb hotels. Well I am pleased to tell you that this is no longer the case.
The La Villa Hotel beats them all hands-down. Visit La Villa and it becomes obvious why this hotel has been ranked as high as the third best hotel in Italy on Trip Advisor and why it won the Traveler’s Awards 10 'Hotel Gems' in Europe.
The owners have turned a dream into reality and the hotel is testament to an impressive labor of love that went into turning the La Villa hotel into one of the finest hotels in Piedmont.
Located in one of the loveliest parts of the Piedmont region, in the heart of the Piedmont winelands, near Asti. La Villa is surrounded by rolling hills, hilltop villages and glorious vineyards.
Piedmont is perhaps the region of Italy with the best food and wine so opening an hotel here means that expectations are high, I am pleased to say that Nicola and family have exceeded these expectations and considerably raised the bar.
La Villa is a hidden gem where luxury is understated and service is impeccable. The hospitality here is reminiscent of a bygone era, creating a truly unique and unforgettable experience.
Once you arrive, it's easy to get lost in the tranquility of the rolling hills, hilltop villages and magnificent vineyards that surround this beautiful property. Here, you can truly unwind and relax in a place you'll never want to leave.
With only 14 rooms available, ranging from cozy single rooms to opulent suites, La Villa is the perfect destination for couples, families or groups of friends. The hotel is extremely flexible and can accommodate nearly all group sizes.
The hotel gardens are simply magnificent, boasting a superb swimming pool and breathtaking views from the terrace and much of the grounds. One of the highlights of your stay will undoubtedly be enjoying a wonderful breakfast, lunch or dinner outdoors on a summer's day or evening, surrounded by nature and the fresh air of the Piedmont countryside.
For wine enthusiasts, La Villa is a dream come true. The wine tasting room is one of the hotel's most popular spots, where you can indulge in the finest Piedmont wines in the company of Nicola, who is extremely knowledgeable about the local wines.
If wine isn't your thing but spas are, then you must try the lovely little spa that happens to be located in the old wine cellars of the villa. The spa is a hidden oasis, where you can relax and rejuvenate in a serene atmosphere that's surrounded by the history and charm of the villa's old wine cellars. Even if you're not a spa enthusiast, the unique setting alone is worth a visit.
