Creating boutique hotel Ca Alfieri al Trenta is a dream come true for owners Fulvia and Bruno. Having fallen in love with the French style and hospitality they have created a luxury B&B with the same feel and warmth, treating guests first and foremost as friends. This charming Chic Retreat is an elegant 18th-century mansion house overlooking the Langhe and Roero hills in Piedmont, Italy. The house has been renovated with great care and love, using local and original materials wherever possible to recreate the atmosphere of the old houses of Piedmont nobility close to Savoy castles. The thick, stone walls ensure that the house is cool in the summer and warm in the winter making it an ideal year-round gem.
The sitting room is an ideal place to relax with a glass of local wine. The French bookcase is full of books in Italian, French and English, as well as board games. Help yourself to a glass of Grappa from Piedmont before heading to bed. The south-facing garden, enclosed by the three wings of the house, overlooks the surrounding Langhe hills with Barbaresco just in front and on a clear day you can see as far as the snow-capped peaks of the Alps.
Breakfast at Ca Alfieri Al Trenta is a feast with homemade goodies: jams, cakes and biscuits, freshly made Italian coffee, fresh fruit juices and seasonal, local products including cheese, salami and parma ham...gluten-free diets are easily catered for.
