127 Case Sparse Tiboldi, Canale, 12043, Italy

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. The 10 rooms, some with ceiling murals, are stocked with provincial furniture and curtains, and bed linens in an array of patterned fabrics. With each morning’s fog, Patrizia arrives bearing freshly laid eggs that she prepares for breakfast, and one by one guests throw open the shutters to the day; at lunchtime, dishes such as roasted squab with mustard and a green-tomato marmalade are served on the terrace.
