10 best Hotels Relais in the Langhe, Italy
Why stay in the Langhe?
Hilly expanses as far as the eye can see, ancient villages and castles perched on hilltops, a succession of gentle slopes planted with vines whose rows draw rigorous geometries: this is the magnificent scenery of the Langhe.
On these hills, where two of the world's best-known wines, Barolo and Barbaresco, are produced, viticulture has been the soul of the economy for centuries. In addition to the 'food and wine' products, for several years now, there has been a diversified selection of culture, art, and outdoor activities (trekking and cycling) on offer to visitor
What awaits those who come to the Langhe?
Enchanting landscapes, excellent food and wine, and outstanding hospitality. Traditional tourism is food and wine tourism; great wines, Barolo and Barbaresco, accompany the rich dishes of the Langhe tradition on the table: the countless hors d'oeuvres, typical pasta tajarin and agnolotti al 'plin', raw Piedmontese meat, PDO cheeses, desserts made with 'Tonda Gentile di Langa' PGI hazelnuts, and finally the Tuber Magnatum Pico, the famous White Truffle of Alba.
A village, a typical delilcacy, an event, a castle or museum to visit, these are the main attractions the Langhe territory offers. From Barolo to Barbaresco, from Alba, the capital of the Langhe, to the charm of the Alta Langa with its wooded countryside, hazelnut groves and cheeses whose choice and variety can truly satisfy all tastes, all the way to the Bassa Langa with its excellent viticuture.

Loc. San Sebastiano 68, 12065 Monforte d’Alba, Cuneo
Not just "a resort set among the hills of the Langhe", but "a soul that grows among the rows, nourished by their natural richness". Réva was born as a winery among the vineyards of Monforte d'Alba and Dogliani and its rooms are characterised by hues inspired by the land of the Langhe.
There is an atmosphere of absolute relaxation and comfort: wine tastings in the cellar, trekking between the rows of vines, golf, a panoramic swimming pool and, last but not least, a seasonal breakfast at the spa situated in the old cellar. The very refined restaurant has a cuisine rich in fermentations and extractions which nevertheless remains true to tradition.
Via Roddino, 21, 12050 Serralunga d'Alba, Cuneo.
Due to reopen shortly, it is one of the most beautiful resorts in the area, overlooking one of the most evocative landscapes of the Langhe: 'a refuge in the green, a place of enchantment'. Surrounding the resort are the vineyards of the Batasiolo winery. Gardens, spa, water room and rooms tailored to every need: everything has been thought out down to the smallest detail.
Plus, a restaurant with great expectations, which will be entrusted to the skilful hands of chef Michelangelo Mammoliti.
Località San Maurizio, 39, 12058 Santo Stefano Belbo, Cuneo.
Dominating an enchanting hilly landscape, the 1619 monastery makes way for a refined and exclusive hotel, consisting of a string of enchanting lounges, elegant rooms with classic furnishings and a spa of more than a thousand square metres. The restaurant, Guido da Costigliole, heir to the glorious tradition of the Alciati family, does not betray expectations.
Borgata Cerequio, 12064 La Morra, Cuneo.
In the tranquillity of an 18th-century country residence (a patrician mansion skilfully restored by the Chiarlo family) with a private chapel, rooms in modern minimalist or Piedmontese baroque style: most with a small private spa (sauna and hydromassage).
In addition, excellent cuisine with traditional dishes from the Langhe and beyond: all characterised by carefully chosen ingredients, graceful presentation, and fine technique.
La Morra, Cuneo.
Resort with a magnificent belvedere, overlooking the hills of Barolo for those who love modern design: truffle hunting, e-bikes, vintage driving: many experiences to try as well as the spa in which to reinvigorate and the wine bar to taste quality and Langa tradition.
In addition, the Osteria reinterprets Piedmontese culinary tradition with excellent intensity.
Strada Della Cicchetta, Località Madonna di Como, 34, 12051 Alba, Cuneo.
An old Piedmontese farmhouse that has been beautifully restored. Quality, charm and relaxation characterise this enchanting inn: dining rooms with ancient brick vaulted ceilings, the "Salle Napoléon", the living room overlooking the Langhe vineyards, and breath-taking views of the Alps. Warm and elegant hospitality, as well as comfortable rooms which truly are guardians of Piedmontese memories.
In addition, an excellent restaurant that understands the typical products of the Langhe, and mixes Piedmontese tradition with the influence of the Mediterranean.
Via Umberto I, 13, 12064 La Morra, Cuneo.
Among the lanes of the ancient village of La Morra, a few metres from the famous balcony over the hills, Uve occupies a beautiful historic building, enclosed around a romantic courtyard.
The furnishings of the rooms are contemporary and refined, charming with exposed beams and original columns.
Corte Gondina Boutique Hotel
Via Roma, 100, 12064 La Morra Cuneo
An elegant period house in the centre of La Morra, where attention has been paid to every detail: personalised rooms, a fantastic swimming pool, a romantic beautifully- kept garden and a refined spa. The breakfast room and lounge are rather Anglo-Saxon in design, while their key concept is the 'tailor-made service' that lies at the heart of their thinking and welcome.
Località Manera, 1, 12050 Benevello, Cuneo.
A 19th-century farmhouse gathered around a courtyard that has become a stately villa, characterised by interiors of modern design alternating with period objects, in the context of a fascinating hilly landscape.
Excellent cuisine that starts with the raw materials of the Langhe and blends them with modern interpretations. The wine cellar is very extensive and equally attentive to local wines.
Località Talloria 1, 12050 Cerreto Langhe, Cuneo.
Splendid resort overlooking the hills of Alta Langa, surrounded by approximately 42 hectares of woodland and greenery. Extremely environmentally friendly architectural design: carbon neutral commitment, use of 100% recycled water for irrigation, geothermal and photovoltaic systems for heating.
Charming rooms with terrace and furnished with design elements reflecting the surrounding area. The restaurant is elegant with a local and 'escapist' cuisine accompanied by a truly commendable wine list.
