La Villa Hotel - Piedmont, Italy
About this Chic Retreat
La Villa is a multiple award-winning boutique hotel in the heart of the Piemonte countryside and vineyards. Most recently it was named as the best hotel in Italy in Travel and Leisure's 2010 Best Hotels of the World guide and has previously been selected as one of the Best 10 Small Hotels in Europe (TripAdvisor), one of the best 45 new hotels in the world (T+L) and has appeared 9 times on television in the past 5 years. La Villa Hotel has already established an enviable reputation as one of the most relaxing, indulgent and comfortable boutique hotels in Europe. Originally built for a wealthy local benefactor, the property has undergone careful and thoughtful renovation to restore many of the old country features typical of the area. La Villa Hotel currently accommodates up to 30 guests with suites, double and single rooms, all with antique and period furniture purchased in the local area. La Villa is set in the Piedmont (Piemonte in Italian) region, home of many of Italy's (and the world's) finest wines including Barolo, Barbaresco and Barbera, some of the most sought after cheeses in Italy, amaretti biscuits, artisan chocolate and grappa, plus the renowned white truffle!
The 14 rooms at La Villa Hotel have been designed to suit all requirements - from single rooms to large & luxurious suites - making it ideal for a single visitor or for families and groups. The layout of the rooms has also been designed to be extremely flexible, so that larger parties or families can take over a complete area or wing of this country house hotel, with friends accommodated in neighbouring rooms, and with private access to the group of rooms. There is also a mix of styles throughout the hotel, from the exotic Moroccan room to the refined French Quarter and the rustic Italian style rooms with their lustrous woods and wrought iron furnishings. Many of the rooms have private balconies or terraces where guests can just relax and take in the peace & quiet. All of the rooms have individual air-conditioning, iPod docking stations, satellite flat screen TVs, DVD & CD players (on request), telephones, complimentary WiFi, luxury toiletries, pool towels, slippers & bathrobes.
