The Fior di farine Bed and Breakfast is situated in the historical centre of La Morra. Enjoy a wonderful walking tour through this characteristic town which is situated 550m above sea level and offers an incomparable view of the surrounding hills famous for prestigious, renowned wines and excellent cuisine. Strolling along the narrow streets, you can admire the Bell Tower, the Baroque Parish Church, the Saint Rocco Confraternity Church and the medieval town wall. The renowned Town Winery, located in the Marquis of Barolo Palace, built in 1700, is also well worth a visit.
Here are a few suggestions for discovering this fascinating and evocative land:
If you wish to remain in the area, Alba, with its medieval towers, is just a few kilometres away. The towns and beautiful castles of Barolo, Roddi, Serralunga and Grinzane Cavour are also within a short distance.
You can choose to reach the above mentioned towns either by car, by bike or on foot along the numerous marked trails, charmed by the breathtaking landscape which is revealed at every curve. Or why not on horseback… or by hot air balloon…?
The Savoy residences of the Roero area, located in Guarene, Govone and Magliano Alfieri are of great historical and architectural interest. The winding “Strada Romantica”, with its eleven stops, is between the Roero and the Langhe areas. You will be enchanted by Cherasco and its antiques and collectors markets, as well as by ancient Pollenzo with its Roman architecture and Università del Gusto.
A one-hour drive away: Saluzzo with its artisan shops, the nearby Staffarda Abbey and Manta Castle. Cuneo framed by the Alps and the peak of Monviso. Mondovì, where you can take the historical cable railway to reach the panoramic part of the town. The nearby Vicoforte Sanctuary. Turin with its aristocratic culture, royal palaces, the Egyptian Museum, the Modern Art Gallery, the Mole Antonelliana, the theatres and the fairs (such as the Book Fair).
Depending on the season, different famous events will surely arouse your curiosity. Firstly, Vinum, held in Alba at the end of April. Bra hosts Cheese, a fair which takes place every two years in September. Turin hosts the Salone del Gusto which takes place every two years in October and attracts thousands of visitors. Whilst in Alba, you can visit the characteristic International White Truffle Fair. Should you be interested in searching for truffles, an outing accompanied by an expert “trifulao” can be arranged.
Instead, for those who simply wish to relax, enjoy an afternoon at the pool, not far from the Fior di Farine Bed and Breakfast, or even a game of golf immersed in nature. Furthermore, wine lovers can visit the numerous town wineries, regional wine shops and different wine estates.
In the evening, have a night out in one of the many restaurants which strive to offer both originality and tradition, then perhaps after dinner you could choose to see a concert or a play in Monforte or at the Teatro Sociale in Alba, or perhaps one of the numerous events such as the Alba USA Music Festival, Infinity Festival or Food in Film Festival. End the day with a stroll under the starlit sky, which can often be enlivened by dancing, music, poetry or just a glass of good wine.
