The only downside of this beautiful B & B is that you won't want to leave! A warm welcome awaits you at Fior di Farine, located near to the interesting and historic centre of La Morra, yet 550 metres above sea level with panoramic views.
Fior di Farina is part of an old active mill Mulino Sobrino, where the flour produced is sold to the local bakers. Moreover, today they use the flour to bake their own bread which you get to eat at the breakfast buffet. In fact most of the breakfast buffet is homemade and organic. In the small farm shop, it is possible to buy some of their specialties to take home: try, for example, the finely ground cornmeal, which is used for polenta - Northern Italy's 'national dish'. You will be invited to do a tour of the mill where you can learn a bit about the interesting history.
There are several very good restaurants in La Morra, and they are within walking distance so you can leave the car at home and not have to worry about driving and parking. The restaurant Il Laghetto is about a 5 minutes' walk away (see separate description below La Morra and 'Excursions and restaurants). You can also enjoy the pleasant climate on the sunny common terrace which faces the light-traffic road that runs through the town.
The distance to the centre of La Morra is only approx. 400 metres as the B & B is just on the outskirts of the town. This means that you get to enjoy the beautiful scenery and tranquillity outside of the centre and also all that the town offers just a stones' throw away. There is a famous walk that leads to the town called Il Sentiero del Barolo. It runs right past the house and leads to, among other things the colourful and elaborate chapel Cappella del Barolo.
Fior di Farine has it all. There is also a small pool which has been recently added. It has been built on a terrace on the first floor, reached by a walkway from the main building. On the terrace you will find sun loungers, tables and chairs, outdoor shower and, a few steps up, a pool with hydromassage and opportunity to swim with a counter current. The terrace with pool also serves as partial cover for the car park underneath. The view from the sun terrace is a little suburban and of the main street below, which leads to La Morra's vantage point Belvedere.There is free parking on site in the open courtyard.
The rooms are particularly tastefully decorated with an almost magical touch. There are five rooms that have been given unusual numbers such as 52, 62, 87, 94 and 2005 and we are told that they are all key dates for the family, such as birthdays and anniversaries. All five rooms are rented as either singles or doubles. Three of the rooms can accommodate three people and one room can accommodate up to five people. All rooms have air conditioning, satellite TV, LCD TV, Wi-Fi, a mini-bar, a telephone and private bathroom with a shower and hairdryer. Some are located on the first floor near the little breakfast room and terrace - while others are on the 2nd floor.
