Piedmont comes from al piè dei monti - at the foot of the mountains. The name of this region in Northern Italy could not be more appropriate, since Piedmont encompasses the north-western part of the Italian Alpine belt. Bordering Switzerland to the north and France to the west, the area is particularly popular with residents living near the border. Nevertheless, Piedmont is considered to be less developed for tourism and is therefore an insider tip for all those who seek relaxation during their holiday in Italy.
Geographically, the region is made up of three parts - the Alps, the hills and the Po Valley. The impressive natural landscape invites you to take long walks or hikes and in the Po Valley, you can admire the largest rice growing area in Europe. As Piedmont was and still is one of the richest regions in the country, there are many castles, palaces and impressive churches to visit.
In particular, Turin, the first capital of Italy, stands out. This city is absolutely worth a visit and offers, besides the above-mentioned impressive buildings, Europe's largest market and some of the world's best museums. For example, the Egyptian Museum has the second largest collection of Egyptian treasures after Cairo and the Automobile Museum is one of the 15 best museums of the world.
The Piedmont region is also famous for its culinary highlights. For example, the Barolo and the Barbaresco are at home in Piedmont, as are black truffles or white truffles in the locality of Alba.
Enjoy this incredibly beautiful region of Northern Italy and spend your holiday in a holiday villa in Piedmont.

Agriculture was and still is of great importance for the region. It ranges from rice growing to wine and livestock breeding, which provides meat and cheese. It is therefore not surprising that many old country houses and farmhouses characterise the region. They are completely renovated and luxuriously furnished but the typical charm of the buildings and their surroundings remains. The large and lavishly planted gardens invite you to feel at home and the private pool provides a way to cool off on hot days. Enjoy your holiday in a country house in Piedmont.
