Make a holiday rental home or villa in Alba, Italy your home away from home

The town of Alba is the gateway to the Langhe Mountains in Piedmont, Italy. Alba is encased by impressive Roman walls, which historically protected the ancient buildings that still stand proud today. Known as Italy’s truffle capital, self catering Alba villas have been the destination for food lovers looking to relax in beautiful surroundings, sampling the finest of European delicacies; the truffle.

Things to do in Alba, Italy

There are many beautiful sights to behold in Alba. The historical centre is a true marvel, encased by thick, defensive walls. The core of the village, the 15th century Cathedral in Piazza Risorgimento, cannot be missed on any Alba holiday, and there are many beautiful religious buildings to explore in and around the centre of Alba.

Alba is a food and wine connoisseurs dream. Although Alba is primarily known for its truffles and the huge Alba Truffle Festival in October, white truffle month, food in general is highly prized in Alba. The food market by the River Tanaro draws chefs from across Piedmont and indeed much of Italy for their fresh produce, and the restaurants of the town serve dishes that you could only dream of at home, from quail risotto to true pasta asciutta. Those with even a fleeting interest in wines to real sommeliers will be spoilt for choice in wines from self catering accommodation in Alba either.

Apart from during the months of October and November, the hills of the Langhe Mountains are free from truffle hunters and perfect for walking and riding. There are many miles of paths leading up through the foothills and into the higher peaks from where you can see many miles across Italy.

Places to visit on holiday to Alba, Italy

During the winter months, the mountains become a highly regarded skiing centre. Skiing in Italy is a hidden delight, not usually regarded among Europe’s top skiing destinations, but in reality, offering some fantastic resorts, world class facilities and hugely enjoyable skiing. The resort of Bagnolo Piedmonte is at the centre of the Cuneo skiing region, and easily accessible from a holiday rental property in Alba.

Weather in Alba, Italy

July and August are the warmest months in Alba, with daily temperatures reaching the mid-30’s (˚C) with great reliability. October and November are cooler, but still very pleasant, perfect for truffle hunts in the late evenings. Winters are much colder, especially if you are heading up into the mountains, with average monthly temperatures in December and January averaging around 5˚C.

The property and house are very well maintained. The house was roomy and very comfortable.

4 of 5
We had a great time exploring the Piemonte region. We were always glad to get back to the house and enjoy the comforts of the home and the wonderful outside spaces. Just wish the weather had been a little better... The owners were accurate in the description of the property and they are fortunate to have a terrific caretaker, who was most helpful in making recommendations and supplying us with tons of information.

Villa Mezzaluna, Scarparoni

4 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the area is beautiful and peaceful, the villa is spacious, comfortable and reasonably well-equipped with a lovely pool, though some of the kitchen utensils have seen better days. Vittoria was very kind and helpful and suggested lots of lovely restaurants for us to try. My only criticism is that it is very expensive for what you actually get, the villa is semi-detached, and the garden and pool are across the road, although I did know this from the property description, it is quiet only leading to other houses, with a few cars and tractors using it. I was very surprised to find that on arrival only 3 beds were made up, we were a party of 6 and wanted to use all the beds, which is why I booked a larger villa. Vittoria was slightly reluctant to let us have more sheets and towels at first, though it was all sorted out quickly. Having paid to book the whole villa, I did not expect sheets and towels to be rationed, as the price we paid would have been the same for 10 guests anyway. I have a holiday let myself and always provide linen for the beds, whether or not the house is full, people don't always want to share a bed! However, I would like to reiterate we really enjoyed our week, and had great fun playing table football.
