Location and surroudings

Casa ‘in Bocca al Lupo’ is situated in the hills of Clavesana between the hazelnut groves and vineyards in an oasis of peace. But this location also makes it possible to make several day trips to for example: Alba, Cuneo, Turin and Genoa. Closer by are the charming villages, each with their own character worth a visit, think of Barolo, Monforte d’Alba, La Morra and Mondovi. In addition, the area is also perfect for a walk – through the vineyards and forests -, cycling, horseback riding and golf … An hour’s drive away you reach the Ligurian Riviera with its many nice towns, but also the beautiful Mediterranean Alps.
In short, everything is possible, but nothing is necessary. So slow down.
The Langhe/Piemonte offers a lot of variety and therefore everyone will find something to their liking. Real city people feel attracted to Turin or Genoa and nature lovers can choose between rugged forests, gently sloping slopes with vineyards, hazelnut groves, (snowy) Alpine peaks and rural fields with winding roads.
There are local markets throughout the region every day, but the markets of Mondovi, Cuneo and Alba are really worth a visit; drink a cup of coffee in a bar and experience the atmosphere of real Italian life.
Wherever you are in Langhe, you never have to drive far to have a completely different view.

Food and wine

Piedmont and the Langhe in particular can be described as the Burgundy of Italy. The inhabitants love delicious food along with a good glass of wine. The region produces the most beautiful wines of Italy, such as the famous Barolo and Barbesco, but also the Roero Arneis and Barbera. There are plenty of wineries to visit for a tasting.
Around Clavesana is the wine region of the Dogliani (Dolcetto) with Cantina Clavesana as a cozy selling point. In the nearby Murazzano is also the most famous regional cheese made, the Murazzano cheese. It is made from sheep’s milk, is short matured and resembles a Toma (cow’s milk).
The worldwide Slow Food movement has also originated in this region. This is an independent organization that is committed to enjoy pure and delicious food, rooted in the gastronomic tradition.
Accesibility
The region is easily accessible and it is no wonder that this is often mentioned. If you want to fly to Piedmont, you can choose between several airports that regularly offer cheap flights (Transavia, Easyjet, Ryanair) to: Turin, Genoa, Milan and Nice (France). This means that you are not dependent on one airport. You can also reach Piedmont from the Netherlands by car in one day. If you prefer to spend the night on the outward / return journey, ask for tips for nice overnight hotels.
