Gourmet & Relax Week

Fassone Veal Tartare with Olive Oil and Black Truffles

A week of gourmet dining and relax

A unique opportunity for a very exclusive package, 8 days in the Langhe area of Piedmont famous for its wines, white truffles and the delicious cuisine of the Hotel Villa San Carlo and its host, Master Chef Carlo Zarri.

This is an ideal place to spend a few relaxing days among the world’s best vineyards. Savor some of the world’s best wines: Barbaresco, Asti, and the King of wines BAROLO. These wines pair perfectly with local specialties masterly prepared by one of the Italy’s best chefs.

Carlo recently was awarded the “Gotha of Taste,” a very prestigious recognition given by a jury of international journalists specialized in the Hospitality & Food industries. Every year 500 hotels worldwide are selected for this recognition.

The area offers many opportunities for a relaxing vacation. The spa town of Acqui Terme offers high quality services for wellness & relaxation. The most famous wine villages including: Barolo, Barbaresco, Roero are within a 30 minute driving range.

Within a few miles,, you can visit the town of BRA, birthplace of the Slow Food movement and its founder Carlo Petrini as well. I would strongly suggest a visit to the Universitá del Gusto (College of Taste) to visit the facilities and to the Banca del Vino (Wine Bank), the only bank in the world that conducts transactions only with wine, not money.

Turin is the former Italian kingdom city, every building, every shop, every street speak of about the past glory. A visit of the recently reopened royal country residence, the “Venaria Reale” (was design after Versaille palace) is worth a visit.

Eatitaly, is an incredible very large place, only the size considering the Italian standards, is unbelievable. Here you can find anything you are looking for about food with products from all over the world. Cheese, wine, past, cured meats, spices, fresh and packaged food, coffee, chocolate, and anything you can think of food.
