Villa la Madonna is an impossible chic creation
When I first saw photos of that hotel, I was really seduced. This is due to Swedish sisters Marie & Annica Eklund who have imprinted the boutique hotel with their sense of style, which they term as ‘casual luxury’.
The hotel sits amidst the north-west Italian Bormida Valley, in Piedmont, with stunning views over the vineyard which surrounds the hotel.
The boho-chic theme follows through to the 18 guest rooms, all which have a terrace or balcony to soak up the surrounding area, and all obviously decorated with a keen eye for detail.
All the rooms have the essential amenities, along with high end furniture. There are 5 family rooms available, 2 of which have interconnecting doors.
A focus on peace & wellness
Wellness is an integral part of the experience of Villa La Madonna. Guests have a wealth of activities to choose from, as well as just enjoying the peace and surroundings of the hotel.
Treatments such as massage and facials can be enjoyed in the hotel spa. Meanwhile, private yoga lessons are available for guests of the hotel also, regardless of experience.
There is only an outdoor seasonal pool which is not heated, but will be a refreshing break from the summer heat.
It’s all about the food at Villa La Madonna
First of all, Villa La Madonna is built around the on-site wine cellar from the 1600s so obviously the heritage is there! The hotel’s sommelier can help you find the perfect wine for whatever the occasion.
Guests can enjoy a tour around the vineyards, have a wine and cheese tasting session, and even on certain times of the year go truffle hunting.
At the heart of the hotel is the restaurant, cooking produce sourced locally and served either in the restaurant, on the terrace or even amongst the vineyard. They also serve food by the pool or can arrange a picnic to take with you when you go explore the beautiful region around.
Villa la Madonna seems to be a good base to discover a part of Italy that I don’t know. All reviews on booking.com are extremely positive so that’s why I wanted to record it here for you as well.
