If you are coming to Piedmont there are three main areas that we direct our clients to.
The first is Turin. This is the most important city of the region and it has so much to offer the gourmand and also those who like their history. With the Alps framing the picture Turin deserves at least a night or two and is recommended at the start or end of tour with us. Turin is in many ways the food capital of the North west and outstanding restaurants abound. October and November are incredibly busy so book ahead if you are coming in for the truffles.
Second, where the real action takes place close to the wineries for us, which is the sub region we can call the Langhe. The majority of these lodges are in a semi rural context.
Robertson Wine Tours think the best accommodation is centered around the Montforte d'Alba, this is a delightful little village with 5 outstanding restaurants in walking distance at night, which can represent a huge cost saving on taxis or us providing transport at night. Montforte d' Alba is rightfully very popular. The only downside is this Borgo has extremely steep gradients so those clients of ours with knee or mobility issues will not find walking around easy.
Finally, we think if you have come all this way then it would be a great shame to miss the Lake District, which is just under 2 hours and half north of Alba and the Langhe. The lakes have been welcoming the Jet set, and generally wealthy for centuries. Some of the hotels can be a little over the top with their New Liberty style but we have some gems and none more so than the Villa Crespi, 2 Michelin Stars with just 14 rooms. We think Villa Crepsi makes the perfect start or end to your tour in Piedmont. Naturally there are so many hotels and agrotourisms we can choose from, we do not even claim to know them all but these select few we have chosen are ones we know the staff, management and our clients have been most impressed with over the years.
