B&B in Piedmont

Located in the northwest parts of Italy, Piedmont is the second largest region of Italy. Its name is derived from Latin, and it means "at the foot of the mountains". A distinctive feature of its landscape is the fact that Piedmont is surrounded by the Alps on three of its sides. In fact, more than half of the region’s territory is mountainous or hilly.

The countryside of Piedmont is an interesting place to visit with a diverse landscape. Our bed-and-breakfast options are located near points of interest, such as the Monte Rosa Massifs or the Gran Paradiso National Park.

Moreover, you will wake up to the enchanting smell of fresh Italian coffee and breakfast ensuring the perfect stay of your day.

Nature in Piedmont

Gran Paradiso National Park was created by King Victor Emmanuel II in order to protect the beautiful Alpine ibex from poachers. Although 40 percent of the park’s territory is sterile, the rest is rich in natural wonders and lush vegetation. But the most interesting part is the 57 glaciers occupying 10 percent of its area. In the past glaciers have also formed the mountains and valleys we are able to explore today. If you decide to hike to the summit and the weather allows it, you will see Mont Blanc and Matterhorn from on top of the peak.

Susa Valley is an alpine valley in Piedmont. It is a region famous for its rich history dating as far as the Roman age. Susa Valley is also one of the longest valleys in the Italian Alps, almost reaching France. An important river passing through the valley is Dora Riparia. This river is an alpine river, and a tributary of the river Po. This valley is also known for its abundance of abbeys, cathedrals, and other pilgrimage buildings. Undoubtedly, the oldest is Novalesa Abbey which was founded in 726.

Lake Maggiore is definitely the most famous natural attraction in this part of Italy. The lake shore is shared between Italy and Switzerland. However, according to our team, the most beautiful part of this lake is the Borromean Islands. The Borromean Islands are in fact an archipelago of 5 small islands – Isola Bella, Isola dei Pescatori, Isola Madre, San Giovanni and the Rock of Marghera.

What to do around here

Of course, it is great to explore a beautiful natural area such as Piedmont by walking through it. However, nothing beats seeing the region from a great height. There are numerous organized hot air balloon events in Piedmont. If you have the chance, don’t miss the opportunity to view the Italian countryside from above.

If a hot air balloon doesn’t sound like enough adrenaline, then maybe you will enjoy rafting through sharp rocks better. The best place for this activity are the slopes of Monte Rosa and river Sesia. Except for rafting, of course, you can try canoeing and kayaking in a duo or by yourself.
