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.

Excellent choice for those who appreciate local cusine, wine and expansive views

4 of 5
Located in the heart of Neive's old and charming village, the apartment is within walking distance to at least 4 excellent restaurants and 2 wine tasting bars. It is well furnished, roomy and comfortable. The local bar, just a few steps away, is a good place for a breakfast cappuccino and pastries. The only complaint is our inability to use the advertised Wi-Fi. We had to walk to one of the restaurants to get a reliable connection. This is a problem if you need Wi-Fi to stay in touch with family or a business.

Remote, rustic & spectacular

4 of 5
Il Papavero is a delightfully rustic apartment in a stunning location amid forest and hazel groves. If you like backwoods tranquillity and don't need too many mod cons, you can't really get better than this place for the money. Apart from distant agricultural machinery or bonfires, you barely see or hear another human; it's mostly lizards, buzzards, woodpeckers & all sorts of insects (purple emperors?). Our only caution is that it is so remote: crow-flight distances are deceptive here as the roads are so tiny and tortuous, and as you'll have hired a car to get here, you presumably won't be planning to sit here all day – though it is tempting just to enjoy the quiet and the changing light across the valley. The road this place is on wasn't marked on any map we could find, and you sort of get used to that driving around the Langhe. Get yourself a really good map before you come here, is our advice. That said, driving here is part of the fun. Just expect to spend a lot of your day doing it. On the subject of driving, Joanne's directions to get here are good, though directions from Alba would be a useful addition as we hired our car there, having got the train from Turin. If you do the same, the new Hertz office is much closer to Mussotto station than to Alba; but get your return ticket before you leave, because there's no ticket office at Mussotto. And if you need to gather your nerve before driving through Alba, we recommend Bar Bun a few yards from Hertz – with parking – for lunch or a chinotto. There's also a handy supermarket on the road out of Alba to stock up for your stay. It's reassuring to know that Joanne is on hand to deal with any problems. On our first night the water supply ran out (owing to exceptional circumstances, but bear in mind that this is the sort of place where that sort of thing can happen). Despite, we think, being out of the country, Joanne answered her phone and made sure the supply was restored by the following lunchtime. Generally the facilities were good: plentiful solar hot water, comfortable bed, nice linen. Even a couple of decent wine glasses. All in all, we'd probably rate this place at four-and-a-half stars if that were possible.
