Combining the Langhe region with a city break in Turin

Overview

Nestled amidst the picturesque vineyards of the famous Langhe wine area, Il Boscareto hotel is the perfect place to stay if you’re looking for stunning views across the Piedmont countryside.

 

It’s the ideal base for those who want to explore the region’s many boutique wineries which produce exquisite varieties such as Nebbiolo, Barbera, Barolo and Barbaresco, or if you want to head into the nearby city of Alba, famous for its Roman history, and its exclusive white truffle.

 

But aside from the surrounding areas, there are also plenty of attractions and sumptuous facilities to enjoy at Il Boscareto itself. You can rejuvenate your body and mind at the resort’s spa, which features a heated pool, hot tub, Finnish sauna and Turkish bath, as well as Technogym equipment, all of which can be enjoyed whilst admiring stunning natural surroundings.

 

Or, if you’re more into relaxing with a glass of vino in hand than on a massage table, you can head to the Sunsì Lounge Bar which serves everything from morning coffee to aperitifs at sunset.

Rooms

With walls covered in sumptuous horizontal striped wallpaper in hues ranging from plush pinks and purples to warm oranges, the rooms at Il Boscareto Resort are all stream lined and colour-coordinated to perfection.

 

For an intimate holiday for two, book into one of the Superior Rooms, which boast wide windows overlooking the geometric precision of Langhe’s rolling vineyards. Or if you fancy a little more space, you may choose from Il Boscareto’s wide range of suites, the most luxurious of which is the Platinum Suite.

 

Situated in the resort’s loft, the Platinum suite offers panoramic views across the countryside from its balcony. It even boasts a Bang and Olufsen sound system, meaning guests can lose themselves in state-of-the-art soundwaves whilst relaxing in the suite’s very own hot tub!

Dining

Chef Pasquale Laera has been executive chef at Il Boscareto Resort since 2003, and under his leadership the Michelin starred restaurant (named La Rei) has been serving up exquisite meals peculiar to the Langhe area’s unique culinary traditions, which are also fused with features from other Italian regions due to Laera’s Apulian origins.

 

Dishes range from smoked squid to Jerusalem artichoke dumplings, grilled pigeon to guinea fowl with turnips and a foie gras sauce.

 

Your gastronomic journey can them be rounded off with a choice of delicious desserts, from citrus fruit tarts to indulgent chocolate dishes.

 

Serralunga d’Alba sits in the foodie-friendly triangle between Alba, Bra and Barolo. Many places double as fine dining restaurants, wine cellars and agriturismi – the team at Il Boscareto will happily point towards the right direction.

Location

Car hire is essential for a stay at the Boscareto Resort. The town of Serralunga d'Alba is 3km away.

 

The small medieval village stands out thanks to its castle, whose outline, which seems to climb upwards, dominates the village.

 

From here, a series of narrow streets form a narrow web of alleys. It appears that the name Serralunga d’Alba, originally Sera Longa, derives from its narrow and long shape.

 

Around the village you can only see the hills, full of vineyards of the great Piedmontese wines.

    Expertoitaly (and Antonio) first came to our attention in 2014 when we were... planning a celebratory trip to Italy for 2015. Although we approached a number of household names about our plans and itinerary by e-mail Antonio immediately stood out. He phoned back almost straight away to get to know something about us and what we liked to do. On the back of that discussion he quickly put together a trip and budget. Given his obvious knowledge of the country and his quick grasp of what we were looking for together with the attention to detail it was a 'no brainer' to put our trust in this company. As a consequence we duly enjoyed a 3 week multi-stop trip in July 2015 tailored to suit us perfectly! On return we almost immediately booked to return in October for a short break to 2 of the locations in Tuscany we particularly enjoyed - Lucca and Montepulciano both of which are delightful. We fell in love with Italy and have returned several times since then all courtesy of Antonio: 2016 - A short break to attend the Opera in Verona. 2017 - 2 weeks in Sicily 2018 - the same - we love Sicily and would urge anyone to go. (where we finally got to meet Antonio in Ragusa which was great) We were due to return to Italy this year for a 3 week road trip - albeit with private transfers rather than actual driving - from Verona to just south of Naples - all immaculately put together by Antonio of course. Alas Covid-19 had different ideas. We can only say that Expertoitaly have dealt with this professionally and as speedily as circumstances allowed and have refunded all the monies. We have no reservations about using them again in the future. In fact Antonio is already on standby to reprise the 'lost' trip as soon as this madness ends and unhindered travel becomes possible again - just extended an improved.

    Just returned from a fab trip to Italy - all organised by Antonio. His time... and effort to get what was just right for us was amazing.. he had a lot to put up with! We have used Expertoitaly before and will do again. We visited Ischia and Naples. Both very different and wonderful. Ischia is perfect for a good rest (visits to the Giardini La Mortella and the Ravino Gardens are a must). The Gardens & Villas Resort is a beautiful setting, very private, calm with amazing staff. Also the little town of Lacco Ameno has some really nice restaurants. Naples was very HOT! but we still managed to spend 7 hours walking about just soaking up the atmosphere and visiting some of the fantastic historic sights. Visit to the underground roman town is well worth it - it is mind boggling to think it was built thousands of years ago.read more

    This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for... me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with Expertoitaly.read more

    Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely... responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

    July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day... holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

    Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two... beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to Italy.read more

    We have just made an amazing journey by train, taxi, boat and bus through... France, a night in Paris, then a night on a mountain in Switzerland, train across the alps on the Bernina Express, 5 days on Lake Como and 6 days on Lake Maggiore. We stayed in the most glorious quality hotels. We made visits to local towns and attractions using buses and boats. Every connection on the journey was planned and executed wonderfully. This is 5 star planning, 5 star service, 5 star experience all personally organised by Antonio at ExpertoItaly. We must never forget the James Bond moment of being whisked across Como by Luca in his luxury Taxiboat from Varenna to the Hotel Filario in Lezzeno with Pavarotti as our musical accompaniment then met on the jetty by a lovely suited receptionist. A dream. Thanks Antonio. See views from our rooms Como then Maggiore.read more
