  • About this holiday

    In the converted monastery of 17th century Cistercian monks, the Relais San Maurizio is a taste of Italian history as well as a taste of its culture. Surrounded by fertile land, its bedrooms and immaculate gardens overlook the rise and fall of the Piemonte vineyards. The restaurant, situated in a hall with a rustic arched brick roof, serves the best of Piemontese cuisine, including the elusive white truffle, accompanied by exquisite local wines. Relax in the Spa and Wellness Centre, or drive out to the nearby wine villages and cities of Alba, Asti, Genoa, and Turin.

    Our opinion

    The Relais San Maurizio is an appealing blend of historic residence, beautiful scenery and interesting leisure activities.

    Hotel description

    The Relais San Maurizio is a stunning 5 star boutique hotel which was once a monastery dating from the 17th Century located in a small village in the Langhe region, at the heart of Piemonte, renowned for its exceptional wine and cuisine. The region is home to the great reds such as Barolo and Barbaresco and also to the famous white truffle. The landscape is dotted with mediaeval towers and fortresses. The Relais San Maurizio sits amid its own parkland of ancient olive trees, spruce, larch and beech and close to the main building are landscaped gardens of lawn and flower beds. The former monks’ cells and stables have been converted to 31 unique rooms and suites at the Relais San Maurizio, which overlook the gardens. The historic stone and brick of the building have been preserved and repaired and act as the foundation for luxurious, contemporary soft furnishings. The Relais San Maurizio hotel boasts a fine Michelin starred restaurant, called ‘Guido da Costigliole’ located in the cellars of the monastery with exposed stonework where the owner Lidia Alciati and her son Andrea blend Piedmontese tradition with modern elements using rich white truffles from Alba and specially-reared local meat. Pre-dinner drinks can be enjoyed in the relaxing Hemingway bar, named after the author who travelled through the region in 1948 to taste the best vermouths of the region. In the fine summer months guests can take advantage of the outdoor pool and sun terrace, with its panoramic views of the surrounding hills and vineyards. For other seasons or times, there is an indoor heated pool too. This works well with the superb spa, La Via del Sale Medical and Beauty Spa, where the treatments are based around the beneficial properties of salt. A stay here at the Relais San Maurizio affords the best of all worlds with its fine dining, beautiful facilities and comfortable rooms. In addition, it is perfect as a base for exploring the region and soaking up new experiences from truffle hunting to wine tasting, from hot air ballooning to cookery lessons.
