La Villa has been designed as a place to escape and relax. Besides the bar and lounge area, there are many outdoor
spots to relax, including a large pool area, courtyard, garden and rooftop terrace. There is a massage room for some
one-on-one pampering and a small library for those who run out of reading material a little too early in the holiday.
For the more energetic there is a well-equipped gym, plus a table tennis table for some mild competition.
There are also bikes for venturing out and about, plus tennis racquets for use at the local courts.
We stock over 200 wines here at La Villa - see here for details. Right next to the bar, we have our own wine tasting room
where we can arrange to talk you through the wines, with selected tastings. These are normally managed by Nicola, who has a Diploma in Wine and who is passionate and
very knowledgeable about our local Piemontese wines, including Barolo and Barbaresco. If she is not at the hotel, she is probably on one of her frequent visits to the winemakers
to check out the latest vintages for our cellars!
We recognise that it is not always possible to escape the world completely, so a complimentary wi-fi service is available
throughout the hotel, as well as a guest-use PC in the reception area in case you need to keep connected to the outside world.
For those who love to plan their days, you will find lots of guide books and books on local wines and food alongside a few good reads to
keep the eyes open by the pool for a few hours. Or let us plan your days for you - we love exploring the
region and bringing back details of our finds to share with guests. We are very used to organizing
picnics; wine, grappa and food tastings, as well as the more typical holiday activities, such as golf, tennis, horseriding or hiking.
Food and wine is a fundamental part of what Piedmont is all about, so not surprisingly we often have wine,
salami, cheese or chocolate tastings in the bar, often impromptu, brought back from the
day’s travels. We also arrange tailored cooking courses, as well as more formal wine pairings with dinner in our restaurant, La Vie, and Meet The
