A LAND JUST WAITING TO BE DISCOVERED
Explore the Monferrato area
Giarvino lies in the heart of the Alto Monferrato region, in the UNESCO World Heritage vineyard landscape.
At this crossroads between Piedmont and Liguria, neat rows of vineyards alternate with thick forests, castles, abbeys and medieval villages.
Here, wherever you look, you will see something wonderful.
Giarvino is 200 metres above the ancient Roman spa town of Acqui Terme. The charming, pedestrianised historic centre of the town is definitely worth a visit, with its numerous restaurants and two weekly markets.
If, on the other hand, you would prefer to take a trip to the Langhe, in less than an hour’s drive you can reach Alba, Barbaresco and Barolo, a treasure trove of acclaimed wines and excellent cuisine.
AMIDST CULTURE, NATURE, FOOD & WINE
The most authentic Piedmont
Situated on the fringe of the best known towns of the Langhe, Giarvino offers you the chance to discover the oldest parts of Piedmont, where it is still possible to find an authentic dimension, distinguished by a simple lifestyle.
From gastronomy to art, via sport and culture, this region reserves discoveries in every season of the year.
When the grape harvest comes in autumn, the hillsides take on a thousand colours and the tables come alive with a feast of unforgettable aromas and flavours: mushrooms, hazelnuts, fresh pasta, cheeses and, of course, the prized truffle, the undisputed protagonist of local cuisine.
Winelovers will be spoilt for choice here among the area’s native wines.
And to alternate the pleasures of good food with some healthy exercise, numerous trails and paths offer scenic trekking opportunities within everyone’s reach, to be enjoyed on foot or by bike. You can also hire an e-bike to explore the breathtaking countryside, visit ancient castles, pretty villages and perhaps a historic wine cellar.
