Hotels in Piedmont
In 1996, winemakers Roberto and Patrizia Damonte bought a dilapidated 18th-century villa near Alba, in Italy’s Piedmont region. By 2003, they’d transformed it into Villa Tiboldi, a lovely hotel with a well-placed pool looking out on a steep hill of vineyards.
Architects Elisabetta Tovo and Filippo Cornero mix the contemporary and the classic at the one-room inn. Inside the 554-square-foot suite, you’ll find arched doorways, an ebony upright piano, and gilt-framed mirrors hanging on brick walls.
Presiding over a cedar- and grapevine-studded hilltop in Italy’s Piedmont region, this monastery hotel has a Caudalie Vinotherapie spa and a restaurant with an exceptional wine cellar, stocked with Barolos and Barbarescos.
This 15th-century villa holds an 800-year-old family archive.
The villa's gardens feature vegetables, fruit trees, roses and peonies, and aromatic herbs.
