  • About this holiday

    In the heart of the Langhe wine region, Villa Beccaris is situated within the hilltop town of Monforte d'Alba. Divided into three separate lodges, this 18th century mansion is a luxury home-from-home. With beautifully utilised outdoor space, you can dine in the conservatory that hangs over the hillside, whilst enjoying views across the gardens and town below. Retire to your room behind the ochre walls and blue shutters so the indulgent relaxation can continue.

    Our opinion

    Villa Beccaris has an intimate feel with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.

    Hotel description

    Villa Beccaris is a gracious 18th Century mansion of ochre stone in the gentle and unspoilt countryside of Piemonte. One side of the hotel faces the historic hilltop village of Monforte d'Alba and on the other side is 2500 square metres of tranquil parkland, whose marked paths make it ideal for taking a stroll and admiring the uninterrupted beauty of the countryside. Beyond the park are the vineyards which provide the region's distinctive wine. Villa Beccaris was expertly restored and refurbished and opened as a hotel in September 1997. The interiors are decorated throughout in the style of the period in which the villa was built and many of the bedrooms have glorious views of the verdant landscape. The Villa Beccaris hotel is small, having just seventeen double rooms, five junior suites and one suite. Curtains, carpets and bedcovers are co-ordinated in rich tones of blue, burgundy and green. An added facility is the outdoor pool in the grounds, which makes a very peaceful spot to relax in warm weather. The Hotel Villa Beccaris does not have a restaurant, but this is not a disadvantage since the immediate area boasts some of the best restaurants in Piemonte, where white truffles are a speciality. Villa Beccaris also has its own wine cellar, Enoteca Infernot, where guests can sample and purchase the local wines.
