Piedmont Holidays & Prices

In pursuit of the Italian dream, we stumbled upon the enchanting region of Piedmont (Piemonte), in the north-western corner of Italy. Nestled amongst sweeping vineyards, medieval villages, world-class restaurants and boutique accommodation, the UNESCO protected Langhe area has remarkably managed to avoid the tourist-trap and stay true to its cultural heritage.

Piedmont is also home to the highly sought-after tartufo bianco (the white truffle), so it is no wonder that the culinary scene is out of this world! Michelin Stars hide behind every corner, making it top of any foodie’s ‘travel bucket-list’. You can walk, cycle and horse-ride the lakes, mountains and alpine forests, before retreating to your rustic (and impossibly charming) B&B to enjoy a glass of award-winning Barolo wine, whilst basking under the glow of the sun against the backdrop of the snow-capped Alps… Sound dreamy enough?

With flights from London to Turin taking just under two-hours, this gastronomic delight is within easy reach; perfect for a romantic weekend away, a half-term crowd pleaser, or simply a holiday with balance. Check out Where To Stay in Piedmont too.

*Don’t miss the annual White Truffle Festival in the medieval town of Alba, which is among many exciting events in Piedmont this year
