The Langhe hills, the Roero and the Monferrato region has been designated a UNESCO world heritage site since 2014.

The name of the region translates as the “foot of the mountains”. Piedmont has long been regarded as Italy’s little secret, where Italians go on holiday – a region that they like to keep as their own. The region is renowned for its cuisine and wine production; the hills of Monferrato and the Langhe are home to the best Italian wines: Barolo, Barbaresco and Barbera being recognised worldwide as among the best reds produced in Italy. Justly and widely regarded throughout Italy as its “food capital’, food lovers from all over the world visit the area to sample its unique truffles. Today, more and more property buyers are discovering the region’s tranquillity and beauty, diverse landscapes and proximity and accessibility to the mountains, beaches and the western Italian Lakes of Maggiore and Orta. The Alps, which offer spectacular settings for its ski resorts and the Ligurian coast are both less than one hour away. Buying a property here means spending holidays enjoying the sun, eating great food, visiting castles and wine cellars of the area, visiting the various museums and historic palaces of the royal family of Savoy, or simply living with nature in tranquil villages on the hills among the vineyards.
