Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Hotel Villa Beccaris, Piemonte

Villa Beccaris is a gracious 18th Century mansion of ochre stone in the gentle and unspoilt countryside of Piemonte. One side of the hotel faces the historic hilltop village of Monforte d'Alba and on the other side is 2500 square metres of tranquil parkland, whose marked paths make it ideal for taking a stroll and admiring the uninterrupted beauty of the countryside. Beyond the park are the vineyards which provide the region's distinctive wine. Villa Beccaris was expertly restored and refurbished and opened as a hotel in September 1997. The interiors are decorated throughout in the style of the period in which the villa was built and many of the bedrooms have glorious views of the verdant landscape. The Villa Beccaris hotel is small, having just seventeen double rooms, five junior suites and one suite. Curtains, carpets and bedcovers are co-ordinated in rich tones of blue, burgundy and green. An added facility is the outdoor pool in the grounds, which makes a very peaceful spot to relax in warm weather. The Hotel Villa Beccaris does not have a restaurant, but this is not a disadvantage since the immediate area boasts some of the best restaurants in Piemonte, where white truffles are a speciality. Villa Beccaris also has its own wine cellar, Enoteca Infernot, where guests can sample and purchase the local wines.

About Piemonte

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Piemonte beckons lovers of wine and food, art and architecture and dramatic, natural but also gloriously cultivated landscapes. Piemonte is essentially a country region of alpine peaks in the north, flat rice-producing river valleys further south, rolling vineyards with attractive villages, forested hills dotted with mediaeval castles and almost at its centre the city of Turin, known throughout the world as a great industrial centre but in fact, outstandingly rich in architectural gems, both modern and in particular Baroque. North of Turin is the Parco Nazionale del Gran Paradiso, with miles of unspoiled natural scenery of mountain peaks and meadows, of rare wildlife and flowers. The splendid palaces, parks and hunting lodges of the Princes of Savoy can be visited in the countryside near Turin on your holiday. Our Piemonte hotels are situated in the remarkable wine-producing regions of the Langhe and Asti, renowned for their beautiful scenery, magnificent wines and fine gastronomy.

Turin, the regional capital, is a fascinating city of Baroque architecture and famous for its association with Fiat cars. Visit the car museum, the Mole Antonelli for a panoramic view. Visit some of the beautiful 18th Century House of Savoy palaces, many built by Filippo Juvarra, including Rivoli, Venaria Reale and Mandria. North of Turin is the subalpine region of Canavese with numerous castles many of which have been opened to the public very recently such as the Castello di Masino, now carefully restored. Lace is produced in the Valsesia. Alba is the centre of the white truffle and of course the local wines (Barolo, Barbera etc) should be tasted and purchased. Cuneo holds a market in the Piazza Galimberti every Tuesday.
