Relais Villa d’Amelia, Benevello
Relais Villa d’Amelia is a beautiful hotel based in a 19th-century farmhouse nestled among the vineyards and hazelnut groves of Piedmont’s Langhe district, just a short drive from the towns of Alba and Barolo. Surrounded by a splendid park sprawling over 7 acres, the villa features elegant interiors with a warm and cosy feeling, mixing sleek, modern furnishings with authentic period elements like the wood-beamed ceilings and the terracotta-tiled floors.
Wine lovers will be won over by the fantastic selection of Piedmont’s blends kept inside the estate’s former chapel, which can be enjoyed al fresco in the delightful cobbled courtyard sprinkled with comfy seating areas (this is an excellent spot for a candlelight nightcap, too). Back inside, there’s an elegant bar with soft lights, oriental carpets and oak-beamed ceilings, where you can cosy up by the fireplace on colder days.
No stay at Villa D’Amelia is complete without a lazy, sun-drenched day by the panoramic pool overlooking the vineyards and the Alps in the distance – the great thing is that it’s open also during the winter season when access is covered, and water is heated up. The hotel also offers a wellness area with whirlpool, Turkish bath, Finnish sauna as well as a range of massages and beauty treatments.
From Villa d’Amelia, guests can enjoy a myriad of activities to explore the territory, including wine tastings at the best wineries, Vespa tours and cycling excursions through hamlets and vineyards.
Villa d’Amelia comprises 37 beautiful rooms and suites decorated in classy, contemporary style, with relaxing neutral tones, wooden flooring and arty prints on the walls. Each is equipped with an elegant bathroom in Travertine marble, with either a bathtub or a shower.
Rooms vary in layout and size, ranging from Superior and Deluxe rooms with an intimate and refined atmosphere to spacious suites with four-poster beds and stunning views over the Alps. There is also an exclusive penthouse suite with lounge area and private panoramic terrace.
Food & Drink
The authentic flavours of Piedmont find their way onto the menus of Villa D’Amelia restaurant, directed by chef Dennis Cesco.
The cuisine of DaMà is a combination of tradition and experimentation, with particular attention to the use of excellent raw materials, with local ingredients from farmers, breeders and shepherds in the area. The protagonists are the typical Piedmontese dishes: stories refreshed and renewed by the young chef’s gaze speaking of the magical land of Alta Langa.
In the morning, you’re treated to a delightful breakfast buffet that includes anything from freshly baked croissants to local cheeses and cold cuts. In the summer months, your morning meal is dished up by the pool..
