Villa Monforte Barolo is located in the heart of one of Italy's most famous wine region-Barolo, in Piedmont. This part of northern Italy, called Langhe, is a gastronomic mecca, home to 14 Michelin-starred restaurants in a UNESCO World Heritage area.
The villa is located in Sant'Eligio 5, Monforte, a 10-minute walk from the Auditorium Horszowski, which hosts the Monforte Jazz festival in July each year.
Monforte is the most lively of the 11 Barolo-producing villages-a unique combination of 15 restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacy, ATMs, several wine shops where wine lovers from around the world mingle with local winemakers.
The villa is only a 5-minute drive from the village of Barolo and 20 minutes from the beautiful town of Alba. In less than 15 minutes you can reach at least 40 Barolo producers around Monforte, and with a little more driving you can reach the world-famous Barbaresco producers (Gaja, Bruno Giacosa).
Turin & Milan Malpensa airports are reached in approximately one-two hours.
It’s a relaxed way of life in Piedmont – even the Slow-Food organization originated here. Expect shops to close in the early afternoon, a great time to cycle through the surrounding countryside, finding a perfect spot for a picnic and discover beautiful hikes. Visit idyllic local villages, admire historic castles and fascinating local museums, followed of course by amazing meals accompanied by some of the best wines in the world.
Experience a change of pace in Turin (69km), a splendid city which was once the capital of Italy and has been transformed since hosting the 2006 Winter Olympics. It's now known for its vibrant cultural scene as well as historic palaces, museums and its superb riverside setting. Winter-sport enthusiasts also love its close proximity to the Alps.
