    Footsteps through Italy

    Join us on a journey from the Alps in the north to the Amalfi Coast in the south, stopping to savour the delights of the Italian regions of the Aosta valley, Piemonte, Tuscany, and Campania in a selection of personally-selected seafront and rural hotels new to our Italian Expressions programme for 2016.

    Why not follow this journey as it is as a holiday for this summer, or dip in and select one or two new places to try? Combine Aosta and Piemonte, Piemonte and Tuscany, or Tuscany and the Amalfi Coast for an unforgettable holiday in Italy. Let us construct the holiday travel arrangements to match.

    The Aosta Valley
    The Aosta Valley lies south of the Matterhorn and, whilst it is renowned as a winter ski area, it is a haven in the summer months for walking, cycling, golf, riding, and water sports, and has excellent food, wine, and cultural activities too. The Aosta valley makes a perfect destination for a summer activity holiday with access via the airports and stations in Turin. Or, combine with a stay in the Italian Lakes.

    Hotel Hermitage, Cervinia
    A luxury five star hotel with alpine lodge features, the Hotel Hermitage offers rest and relaxation as well as being ideally placed for the summer activities in the mountains. The 38 bedrooms and suites are cosy and comfortable; there is a spa and wellness centre with indoor swimming pool, an 18-hole golf course, and gourmet restaurants combining refinement and regional heartiness.

    Prices from about £1240 per person for 7 nights in summer, with flights and hire-car.
    Stay 7 nights for the price of 6 from 10 July to 6 August and from 20 to 30 August.

    Rich in culture and history, Piemonte is particularly renowned for its magnificent wines and fine gastronomy. The local beef, truffles (including the white Alba truffles), butter, and cheeses combine to make Piemonte rich in flavours. The wines of Barolo, Barbaresco, and Dolcetto are world famous. The patchwork hills of vineyards are an attractive backdrop to the villages. Piemonte is easily reached with flights to Turin and even Milan, and can be combined with a stay on the Ligurian Riviera, the Alps to the north, or with the Italian Lakes.

    Relais d’Amelia, Benevello

    Just 9 miles from Alba, the Relais d’Amelia enjoys a setting amid hazelnut groves and parkland on a country estate. Traditional architectural features of the region have been preserved whilst new additions such as a wellness centre and Michelin-star restaurant welcome the guest. Tastings of the famous Benevello and Alba wines can be arranged. Nearby Alba offers events throughout the year including music, cheese, and truffle festivals. The Relais d’Amelia is the perfect centre for exploring the food, wine, and culture of Piemonte. Find out more about the Relais d’Amelia.
    Prices from about £1185 per person for 7 nights including flights and hire-car.

    Tuscany, we know, is an immensely rich region with its history, art, architecture, cities, landscape, food, and wine. Here, the focus is just to the south-east of the well-known and iconic walled town of San Gimignano, and not far from the equally interesting walled town of Volterra. From here you can easily reach Siena and Chianti. To the south is the less well-known area of the Val d’Orcia, a few miles from Montalcino and the UNESCO town of Pienza. From here you can admire the patchwork of vineyards, olive groves, and woods or travel to Monte Amiata.

    Borgo Pignano, near Volterra
    A historical hamlet offering hotel rooms and self-catered apartments amid 750 acres of parkland and grounds, the Borgo Pignano is a majestic and beautiful property. Comfortable accommodation in the local style, a restaurant serving locally grown produce, activities such as horse riding, swimming, painting, and cookery in the old grounds, all combine to make this an attractive and high quality place to stay amid the stunning scenery of Tuscany. Find out more about the Borgo Pignano.
    Prices from about £1280 per person for 7 nights with flights and hire-car.

    Hotel Adler Thermae, Bagno Vignoni
    The Adler Thermae is a five star spa resort in the beautiful Val d’Orcia about 12 miles from Montalcino. Particular highlights of the spa resort are the 1000sq metres of indoor and outdoor pools and the extensive range of sports and wellbeing activities available, from spa treatments, walking, cycling, golf and riding. All rooms have either a balcony or terrace, and the open air restaurant uses top quality, organic, local produce. Tasting of the local wine takes place in the cellar. Find out more about the Hotel Adler Thermae.
    Prices from about £1395 per person for 7 nights with flights and hire-car.

    The Amalfi Coast
    This dramatic coastline, with its deep gorges, violently-shaped rocks, and luxuriant vegetation, is a magnet for the appreciative visitor who will revel in the unique landscape and atmosphere. You can soak up the Moorish and Byzantine architecture, the deep pinks of the buildings, matched only by the profusion of bougainvillaea that clings to them. Take boat trips to the island of Capri, explore the Roman towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum, and soak in the peaceful romance of Ravello with its panoramic views of the sea.

    Hotel Miramalfi, Amalfi
    The Hotel Miramalfi is a family-run four star hotel of just 49 rooms, occupying a strategic position on the cliff-side about half a mile from the centre of Amalfi. Simply furnished with colourfully tiled floors, the hotel displays both contemporary and traditional styles in its furnishings and paintings. Outdoor pool, bar, and restaurant all offer striking sea views. Find out more about the Hotel Miramalfi.
    Prices from about £990 per person for 7 nights with flights and transfer.

    Hotel Antiche Mura, Sorrento
    The Hotel Antiche Mura is a superior four star hotel, built in Belle Epoque style, in the heart of Sorrento, which stands within its own garden of citrus trees beside a swimming pool. There is no restaurant, but the position of the hotel is such that numerous restaurants in Sorrento are within short walking distance.
