PRIVATE ESCAPE 8 DAYS / 7 NIGHTS

Bella città
and Langhe

The “bella città” as Turinese call it, escapes the radar of mass tourism and yet is a must-see Italian town.

Historical cafes – the oldest from 1763, world-famous chocolates, chic bars, luxury shopping, iconic restaurants and vast museums.

 

Turin is the entrance to a small paradise, the Langhe where people eat well and live well. Your journey will be plenty of elegance and taste, through the great beauty of the Langhe hills, only an hour away from the Piedmont capital.

Voyage en Turin avec L’Hedonist

Vineyards as far as the eye can see and small medieval villages where time seems to have stopped, among the sweet curves of the hills. The region is a dream for any amateur of gastronomy and wine, as well as curious travellers looking for unique places and preserved scenery.

 

The perfect match between an off of the beaten track region and the breathtaking landscapes of the Langhe to taste the Italian way of life. Especially when the trip curator is the two Michelin-starred Chef Michelangelo Mammoliti!

“There is a happiness in sitting in the Grand Café of Turin and feeling, consciously or not, that is belongs under the vaulted arcades, is protected by them”, write Chantal Thomas in her novel “Cafés de la mémoire” where she gives a vibrant homage to the city of Turin.

Michelangelo Mammoliti’s gourmet Piedmont

The two Michelin-starred young Chef invites you to discover “his” Piedmont. Because he loves his land and knows every village, vineyard and producer, he exclusively shared for Hedonist clients his favourite restaurants and secret spots, places that inspire him endlessly.
