The peace and quiet and beautiful nature is what strikes you when you arrive at Villa Cornarea. You can relax in the large park-like garden after a day strolling through the vineyards, and take a swim in the beautiful swimming pool. Then of course, after the swim you can enjoy a glass or two of the Villa's own wine production.
The villa is only approx. 1 ½ miles from the charming historic town of Canale, where you will find an interesting Sunday market and a Michelin-starred restaurant (1 star) L'Enoteca. Within a reasonable distance you will find also 11 other Michelin-starred restaurants and the area has the largest concentration of revered restaurants in Italy. Torino is just about. 45 km away.

The villa is peacefully located 300 metres above sea level at the end of a cul de sac. The Piedmontese Art Nouveau country house dominates hectares of vineyards and from here you can enjoy the most inspirational panoramic views. The owners were indeed inspired themselves and have thus created a trail system of over 3 km of paths that wind amongst the fragrant vines. Once you have wandered along these trails and absorbed the aroma then it's time to taste the actual wine. Wine tastings are held in the cellar at the villa for guests. Amongst other things, the family produce the wines Roero Arneis, Roero, Nebbiolo and Passito Tarasco. Breakfast includes local specialties, home produced treats and organic breakfast cereals from nearby producers.
The villa has a pleasant green and shady garden so if you wish to escape the heat of the sun and find a shady corner, then this is possible. But the dolce vita does not stop there: Villa Cornareas pool area is a true gem with an elongated pool with a children's section, a nice little bridge, an outdoor shower and a cosy pergola. Couples are welcome here as are families with children. Special measures have been put in place for small children which include a baby changing table, high chairs, small baths and children's cutlery.
