Piedmont must surely be one of the loveliest regions of Italy. If you would like to experience a lifestyle that can only be called exquisite I would suggest you come and stay a little. Mouthwatering food, vibrant markets, ancient hill towns and soaring alpine peaks await you.
To make your visit as special as possible Maria (my Italian wife) and I have put together a handpicked selection of properties we love. The list is not long and only includes places that we have visited personally...
Le Finestre sull'Abbazia (click for more) offers apartments that can accomodate up to four adults right on the doorstep of gorgeous la Morra (that's la Morra in the photo). The apartments offer great value in clean and simple comfort. Free Wi-Fi, a swimming pool and fitness centre are other good feature but the clincher for me is the winery across the road!

Escape to a medieval hamlet alongside an ancient castle. The hamlet is surrounded by an estate of vineyard covered hills where wines have been produced since the 14th century.
Enjoy tastings of these excellent wines and the chance to live an experience of a lifetime. For more details click here.
A lovely apartment on the ground floor of a beautifully restored early 19th century alpine villa. The setting is gorgeous. In summer it is ideal for walking, cycling and exploring the nearby Val di Susa . In winter the world famous ski resort of Bardonecchia is only a walk away. Details of the apartment can be found here.
These apartments represent the perfect base to explore Turin, the Val di Susa and the splendid town of Saluzzo . The apartments are well furnished and centrally located near the Porta Susa train and subway stationjust across the river from Turin's lovely hillside and Collina district. Click to discover more.
