Authentic Experience in Piedmont

Travel to the very north of Italy, and you’ll discover Piedmont, a majestic land of pastures, mountain fortresses, vineyards where Nebbiolo grapes for Barolo wines are grown, and stunning views of the Alps. This northern region is also home to Turin, a unique and thriving city that is known both for its stunning architecture, including baroque palazzos, as well as its shopping, what with the city’s many charming boutiques. It’s also a place where culinary traditions thrive; pair the region’s famous Barolo wines with everything from starters like grissini, to entrees of agnolotti, and desserts of gianduja chocolates and biscotti, and you’ll be living like the locals do.

Just forty minutes outside of Turin is the quaint medieval town of Casalborgone. Situated among the hills, it offers breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside, which you can experience and see from your accommodations, the bed and breakfast ViaVai, a top-rated hotel on TripAdvisor. Once a family home, today this B&B is run by Francesca and her husband Albert, who treat their guests like family.

Francesca certainly went above and beyond for my sister and I. Unfortunately, we were ill on our first day and we were well looked after. Due to being sick, Francesca changed our programme quite a lot so that we could fit in what we could. The programme and network of local shops, artisans and activities surpassed what we thought we would get. We cannot speak highly enough of Francesca. She is a very friendly lovely woman who welcomed us into her house and family. My sister and I have travelled considerably and we feel that this is definitely one of the best experiences we have had. We think what Francesca has created is very special indeed.

Trip Details

Your 2 cooking classes with your hostess Francesca are very much made to order! Your first class will normally focus on local antipasti, while the second will focus on pasta, but in all cases the classes will follow the seasonal ingredients.
