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.

The weather was fantastic so the kids jumped into the pool right when we arrived after a spending the day on the road. We could have easily spend our entire week at the property as it is just perfect. I have seen many holiday homes but none compares to this one: spacious rooms, beautifully decorated, clean; a fantastic garden with all the privacy you want and on top the house is equipped with many things you would put in your own home: e.g. plenty of towels, a good size TV with a nice selection of DVDs (we didn't watch any as there were too many other great things to do), bicylces etc. Could not ask for more. One last thing: a welcome package in the fridge with milk, pasta, butter, and even some wine. Equally generous and thoughtful. I can only say thank you, Carole and Alan.

Short walk into San Guilio for breakfast, many restaurants and boutique shops. Ideal centre for exploring area and walking. Not too commercialised. We loved it and had a very happy stay 14 May for a week.
