PRIVATE ESCAPE 4 DAYS / 3 NIGHTS

Barolo, truffles and hilltop villages

Vineyards as far as the eye can see and small medieval villages where time seemed 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.

 

For experienced wine lovers, seven different DOCG wines are produced in the “tenute” or “cantine” (the vineyard domains) of the Langhe, which rank amongst the best PDOs of the Italian peninsula. The Piedmont vineyards are protected with the Unesco World Heritage list.

 

As for gastronomy amateurs, they will love the prodigious white Alba truffle from the Langhe, which is an attraction for food-lovers around the world, as well as the Bra village, centre for the Slow Food movement, a reference in quality and well-minded food.

To top it all, the beautiful landscapes and amazing architecture of palaces, medieval streets, churches and castles of the region make it a rich cultural spot.

 

Isn’t it a dream to combine gastronomy, art and lifestyle in the same journey? Especially when its curator is the two Michelin-starred Chef Michelangelo Mammoliti!

“All I see are hills, they fill the sky and the earth” wrote Cesare Pavese about the Langhe. Its castles, small medieval towns and churches nestle in this landscape of infinite hilltops.

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 L'Hedonist clients his favourite restaurants and secret spots, places that inspire him endlessly.

Exceptional cheeses

In Bra, taste the celebrated butter and cheeses “tuma dla Paja” and the escarun of the Chef’s exceptional cheesemaker.

Créateur de saveurs

L’expérience Mirazur

Dîner au Mirazur, c’est suivre un véritable parcours sensoriel. La découverte du menu est emplie de mystère : sera-t-on ébloui par un menu Racines, Fruits, Fleurs ou Feuilles ? Seul le potager du Chef le sait ! Et le Cosmos lui-même qui inspire Mauro Colagreco pour des plats chaque jour réinventés selon le calendrier lunaire. Un pur moment de poésie qui se poursuit par l'annonce des plats empreinte de délicatesse. Enfin vient la dégustation aux associations surprenantes. Un dîner ? Non, une expérience !

Vin des terres blanches

À quelques kilomètres de Menton, dans les montagnes italiennes, Filippo cultive le rossese di Dolceacqua - le cépage roi de la viticulture ligurienne – mais aussi les pigato et vermentino. Dégustation privée de ces vins rubis aux arômes de cerise et de d’églantier, exaltés par le soleil et l’altitude.

L’ode au pain

Pour Mauro, le pain fait partie intégrante de l’expérience Mirazur. Au début du repas, le pain de partage est posé sur la table accompagné d’un poème de Pablo Neruda Ode au pain.

Faites une escale dans sa boulangerie Mitron Bakery, au cœur de Menton, pour découvrir son pain aux arômes prononcés et ses délicieux panettone au citron.

L’ennui selon Cocteau

La Villa Santo Sospir c’est l’histoire originale d’un artiste qui s’ennuie dans la maison de vacances de son amie Francine Weisweiller. L’artiste n’est autre que Jean Cocteau et son désœuvrement va se traduire par des fresques murales inspirées de la mythologie, des mosaïques imposantes, des portes et des meubles " tatoués " comme il aimait à le dire.
