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

Piedmont, in the northwest of Italy is one of the country’s largest regions, bordering both Switzerland and France. Piedmont managed to remain largely undiscovered even by domestic travellers until the 1970’s. It is a region of outstanding beauty, with more stunningly picturesque lakes and valleys than even the world renowned Tuscany region to the south of Piedmont. Now, holiday accommodation in Piedmont is the toast of gourmands and food lovers from every corner of the globe. The region has gained recognition as a magnificently beautiful region with a thousand reasons to entice holiday makers into taking accommodation in Piedmont.

Places to holiday in Piedmont, Italy

Piedmont is further split into six provinces, all with very individual characteristics. Alessandria, Asti, Cuneo, Novara, Turin and Verbania are all named after their capital cities or towns.

Turin is the capital of Piedmont, famous for many reasons, with a gracious Baroque centre. It is a city adorned with great statues and covered streets, where shopping and strolling through the streets is a pleasure due to the rare, calm atmosphere of the town centre. Piazza Castello is the heart of Turin, and must be visited from a Piedmont property in the area. It is surrounded by palaces and noble buildings, separated only by historical cafes, which form a vital role in Turin life.

Things to do in Piedmont, Italy

The cuisine, wine and gastronomy of Piedmont are second to none, and have catapulted the villas of Piedmont to global acclaim. The cheeses, meets and truffles of Piedmont are the envy of many regions in France, and the local Nebbiolo or Barolo wines are a perfect compliment to local dishes. Every town has a truffle or wine festival in the autumn, which is a magnificent time to visit a holiday property in Piedmont.

The northern reaches of Piedmont are Alpine in nature, and have more in common with Switzerland than they Italy, and there is some exhilarating skiing to be enjoyed during the winter months. Skiing resorts in Piedmont have a loyal following, with the resorts of Sauze D’Oulx, Sestriere and Baradonecchia making great use of the beauty of the snow covered Alps. Skiing and snowboarding are both well catered for, and there are Piedmont chalets for rent available in all the ski resorts here. The facilities in Piedmont’s ski areas are top class for both winter and summer holidays, and have been recognised as an Olympic venue. The mountains are not all available to ski. Due to their natural beauty, large areas have been protected for walking and horse riding.

Piedmont is also home to some remarkable castles. Picturesque lakes and Alpine backdrops simply add to the splendour of the medieval architecture. This is an astonishingly beautiful region, and Italy’s first national park, the Parco Nazionale del Gran Paradiso is essential viewing for anyone taking a Piedmont property or rental villa.

Piedmont is sometimes referred to as the Lake District, and Lake Maggiore and the tiny Lake Orta are two very famous places to visit from a Piedmont villa. The magical beauty of the lakes has inspired artists and writers for many years, and Lake Maggiore has become synonymous with romantic breaks and honeymoons.

Weather in Piedmont, Italy

Piedmont is a large and geographically diverse region. A holiday home in Piedmont may be submitted to completely different conditions to a property elsewhere in Piedmont. The northern, Alpine regions will undoubtedly be cooler than the regions close to the Mediterranean coastline. Average temperatures for the whole region are a pleasant 26°C in July, and a chilly 5°C in January.

Travel to Piedmont, Italy

The Caselle Aeroporto Internazionale di Torino is the main airport in the Piedmont region, located 16km outside the city of Turin. Flights from Manchester (MAN) andLondonGatwick (LGW) arrive regularly, and cheap flights are available from Ryanair. More regular flights from the UK arrive into Milan Airport (MXP), 45 miles outside Piedmont, and the suitability of flying to Milan depends on the location of your self catering holiday accommodation in Piedmont.

Beautiful, convenient, and well-located. The perfect based for exploring Piemonte

5 of 5
It was a privilege to stay in this beautifully renovated house, ideally located for exploring Piemonte. The setting was perfect for us: rural enough to have a quiet break with breathtaking views of the valley, and yet close enough to drive to major destinations such as Alba, Asti, Turin, Barolo and Bra. The house is one of the nicest places we’ve ever stayed. A medieval building immediately beside an ancient church, the house has been lovingly restored and decorated in modern, stylish taste. The kitchen was equipped with most things we needed, and we prepared meals at home most nights, using up the truffle we bought in Alba and the wines discovered on our journeys. Chiara made us feel most welcome on our arrival; the added touches of local wines and homemade apricot jam and cake made us feel instantly at home. On the middle floor, there is a comfortable sitting room with television that we never used, preferring instead to spend our time upstairs or down. We ate our meals in the small garden – the weather was mild enough even in late October – however, the multitude of timer-activated garden lights meant that there was little chance of stargazing and there was little privacy due to the comings and goings of the neighbors living close by. Nevertheless, everyone was friendly enough and it did truly feel like we were living as the locals do. One of the previous guests wrote in the guestbook that they were taken out dancing by the family next door. Carpe diem! The bedroom had a comfortable bed and wardrobe large enough for a week’s worth of clothes. The star attraction in that room was the balcony window, which we left wide open all night and from which we could watch the sun rise and set. We sat on the balcony every night with a glass of grappa, a blissful experience. The area seemed completely insect-free, so windows were left wide open when we were at home. The bathroom was modern and clean and many complimentary provisions were supplied. Europeans will be delighted with the bidet. The glass ceiling that Marco created to separate the bathroom from the ancient timbered roof above was a marvel of design. One real advantage to this place that wasn’t made clear in the write-up beforehand was the ideal parking very close to the house. The walk to the car was indeed short. It was a lovely place to stay and a wonderful base for exploring things both near (the excellent pizzeria in town) and further afield. I’d definitely return.

Charming Casa

5 of 5
There is something magical about driving up winding Italian roads and turning into a mysterious drive. This is what you experience when you first enter the tree lined entrance of Casa Colina. And then there it is,this lovely pale yellow farmhouse oozing rustic character and charm. It's a welcoming house with lots of interesting nooks and crannies including a hayloft. The house has been decorated and furnished sympathetically yet with all the mod cons you need. The bedrooms are cool and spacious with such very comfortable beds. The modern shower rooms are a welcoming bonus. The grounds are stunning, with the swimming pool taking pride of place. To swim in this pool taking in the breathtaking views of surrounding hills must be one of the best things about our stay here. The nearby towns are a short drive away and full of friendly bars and lovely restaurants. There are also many traditional local Casa's which offer wine tasting with platters of tasty food. The owners of the property went out of their way to make our stay extremely pleasant. We had an amazing time at Casa Colina and can't wait to return.
