Among Italy’s Unesco World Heritage Sites aren’t just artworks, castles and monuments; there are also entire areas, such as the vineyard landscape of Nizza- Monferrato in Piedmont. In this area, where one of the world’s greatest wines originates, lies Alba Estate – Villa D. Owned by a local winery, guests can visit the vineyards and widen their wine knowledge with older vintages, verticals and lesser-known indigenous varieties. This family villa for rent in Piedmont has all you need for a comfortable holiday in Northern Italy.
A timeless wine culture pervades the area, although truffle hunting is also a must-try activity during your stay. The noble white truffle, coined Tartufo Bianco di Alba, comes from this region and, in spring and summer, you can experience black truffles too. Alba Estates work alongside the Truffle Dog University, where the dogs and hunters will use the grounds to forage delicacies.
Villa D captures the essence of noble life in the Northern Italian countryside. Elegant, cosy furnishings framed by wooden beams, spacious bedrooms, private balconies and endless vineyard views are some of the elements that make this villa so special. With three double bedrooms and one single, the villa can accommodate up to 7 guests plus two additional children or teenagers in sofa beds.
