RELAIS DEI PODERI EINAUDI | charming B&B with swimming pool LANGHE
At Podere Einaudi, just outside the town of Dogliani, you have the opportunity to spend a wonderful stay in an ancient family dwelling.
And we are not talking about an ordinary family: this holiday residence was strongly desired by Luigi Einaudi, the first president of the Italian Republic.
Relais dei Poderi is a refined place, but familiar and warm at the same time.
The stillness and relaxation are favored by the presence of just a few rooms, all overlooking the hilly landscape and decorated with the original furniture of the house.
In the winter garden, where the large windows offer a relaxing view over the nature, you can taste a great breakfast enriched by tasty local jams.
The swimming pool, surrounded by vineyards, has a particular bottle-shape, clear reference to the culture of wine, the true soul of the area.
BEST WINE TASTING PIEDMONT
At the relais you can book a room or even just make a stopover to the cellars and taste the wines produced by the winery, accompanied by local cured pork meats and cheeses.
And in the living room you can enjoy reading, lulled by the Ludovico Einaudi’s notes (who is son of the well-known publisher Giulio and nephew of Luigi).

RELAIS SAN MAURIZIO | luxury HOTEL and gourmet starry restaurant LANGHE
Just a few km away from Santo Stefano Belbo, it rises the Relais San Maurizio, a place of ancient charm, with a story that began four centuries ago.
In 1600 a group of Cistercian monks, covering the ancient Salt Road, decided to build a monastery here, on the remains of a previous century chapel.
The monastery became an aristocratic residence and finally, in 2002, first Relais & Châteaux in Piedmont.
From the top of its hill, the Relais San Maurizio has perfectly combined its ancient history to the land that surrounds it and to the local products: wine and truffle, true gastronomic excellences of the Langhe region.
A careful restoration of the building has made the structure ideal for the discerning traveller, while still maintaining the original shape of the monastery.
Rooms and suites have been obtained from the old monks cells.
In some of them, old wooden floors and vaulted ceilings have been preserved. Many rooms have a private garden, while the view is on the cloister or on the wide hilly landscape.
As we said, the Relais San Maurizio is located along one of the 5 Salt Roads, so just around the curative function of this element was conceived the beautiful spa, with its salt cave and two bio saunas formed in large casks, which still issue the flavor of the wines they kept for years.

And then the kitchen, with the starry restaurant Guido da Costigliole, hosted in the monastery cellars, and the Truffle Bistro, a center of culinary experimentation close to local products.
In the monastery wine cellar it’s also preserved a precious collection of almost 3,000 wine labels that include not only the wines of Piedmont but of all the most famous wine areas in the world. The great bottles of this collection are guarded in the monks crypt, visitable on request under the sommelier’s guidance .
truffle hunting italy
Many are the initiatives created to make guests live the peculiarities of the territory, with its rituals and unique activities: in autumn for example, how to resist the opportunity to try a real truffle hunting, going in the woods along with a true “trifulao” and his dogs? And then return to the relais to learn how to combine the truffle with the Langhe traditional dishes, while tasting the best local wines.
