A new volume dedicated to charming hospitality in wine resorts

A gifted photographer from Piedmont – who is not only a photographer and not only from Piedmont since he is about to be adopted by the island of Elba – and a curious journalist from Rome – who is not only a journalist and who is also Milanese – invite readers to travel to some of their favourite places in Piedmont. From afar, they sorely miss the pungent odour of verderame sprayed on the vines in early summer, the heady smell of must in winemaking Langhe villages, or the natural and rather earthy tang of truffles. So, what better than to spend a few days in castles, farmhouses, manor houses, monasteries or even country cottages, previously abandoned and now brought back to new life with style and passion while fully respecting their old structures and original functions. This book presents forty extraordinary charming country hotels, in which guests are welcomed as friends.

Adriano Bacchella is author of about forty books; his lifestyle, interior and travel reportages are regularly published in important both Italian and international magazines (such as Case & Country, Io Donna, Elle, AD, Gioia, Elle Decor Japan, Ville & Casali, Elle Decor Germany, Der Smaak Italie).
