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.
Whether you prefer bustling cities, mountain vilages or quiet country havens you will find something to suit you in Piedmont.
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...
Holiday Home Cannubi (click for more) offers accommodation that can cater for up to four adults right on the doorstep of gorgeous Barolo. The apartment offers great value in clean and simple comfort. Free Wi-Fi, a stunning setting and a fully equipped kitchen are other good feature but the clincher for me is the winery down the road and Barolo 10 minutes walk away! Click here for more.
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.
