Clavesana in ‘De Langhe’ Piedmont
The luxury holiday home Casa ‘in Bocca al Lupo’ (good luck) sits atop a hill between the vines near the picturesque town of Clavesana in Piedmont, a region of Italy that is directly opposite the Alps. Piedmont means: “At the foot of the mountains”.
Although Piedmont has many well-known areas, the Langhe is one of the better known. A hilly region adjacent to the broad valley of the Po with great views of the Alps. The Langhe is best known for its culinary delicacies, with the eye-catchers being the Barolo wine and the white truffle. It’s a piece of Italy as it’s supposed to be.
Space, nature and real Italy
The Langhe offers space, is not yet overrun with tourism, unspoiled nature, the region is pure, honest and it is very affordable. The residents of the Langhe are friendly and helpful. The village of Clavesana has many borgatas, but has a supermarket, a bar, several restaurants and a large Cantina with good wines. Due to its location on the Tanaro River with the imposing Calanchi (chalk cliffs) and with the high hills full of vines and hazelnut trees it is wonderful to stay there. Life there is slow but almost excessively good and approached – according to us – the typical Italian Dolce Vita
Towns and places nearby
The world-famous towns and towns of Barolo, Alba, Bra, Mondovi and Cuneo are easily accessible, but Turin, Genoa, the Alps and the Riviera flowers can also be reached after about an hour’s drive.
With big events like the international White Truffle Fair in Alba, the music festival Collezione in Barolo, Grasso Bue (meat) in Carru and then the many village festivals in the summer there is always something to do!
