Piedmont is one of Italy’s largest regions, yet is a real insiders’ tip for nature lovers. Still relatively un-touristy, it is an oasis for anyone who appreciates unspoilt nature. This part of the Alps has many secret places but there are famous hiking routes like the Grande Traversata delle Alpi and Via Alpina too. Winter sports are fantastic here, especially in Piedmont’s winter resorts Limone Piemonte and Bardonecchia where skiing and snowboarding have long traditions. Across this area you’ll find fantastic hotels, to the regional capital Turin, beautiful Asti and on the western banks of Lago Maggiore. Each unique hotel enchants with a magical charm or exclusive luxury, guaranteed to be nearby some of Piedmont’s best sights. Whether you prefer Isola Bella, an island palace on Lago Maggiore or wine tasting at Barbaresco in the hills, a colourful palate of sensual experiences awaits you.
