From an ancient stone villa in Piedmont to an atelier in Florence, T+L reveals Italy’s best affordable country inns.

Le Case Della Saracca, Piedmont

16 of 14

One of the four ancient houses that make up Le Case della Saracca was previously home to a quirky farmer named Camiot who kept a donkey on his third-floor balcony. Today, his former residence has been turned into an edgy B&B and osteria. A stone candlelit passageway leads to a mazelike interior, where glass walkways connect six rustic-chic rooms (washbasins carved from tree trunks; exposed wood-beamed ceilings; flagstone floors). After a day of exploring the nearby vineyards and truffle farms, head to the inn’s restaurant for such regional specialties as risotto with artichokes and bacon, and local goat cheese au gratin. 3-5 Via Cavour, Monteforte d’Alba; 39-0173/789-222; doubles from $190.
