This is one of those hidden gems that comes across the desk only so often. Set in the heart of Piedmont, Nordelaia has all the makings of your next novel’s mis-en-scène. Forage for truffles in the morning, and have them for lunch. Enjoy aperitivos later in the day. Decompress in the spa. Rinse and repeat. Here’s the preview of this under-the-radar boutique hotel in Piedmont.
The resort is in the Monferrato area of southern Piedmont. For foodie aficionados (or anyone who eats), Piedmont is the home of the famed white truffle. And yes, it’s in season right now, and yes, we can do a bang up white truffle hunt. Because it’s south, Nordelaia also borders Lombardy and Liguria, the latter of which is home of the famed Genovese pesto.
Piedmont is clearly the place to be right now, with the opening of luxury hotel Casa di Langa. Nordelaia joins the ranks of Casa di Langa as luxury-level accommodations in an area where the top hotel was previously four stars. Nordelaia is a boutique hotel in Piedmont set on five hectares, almost in the middle of nowhere in the town of Cremolino. The centerpiece of the resort is an 800-year old Italian farmhouse that has been meticulously restored. While you are remote, you’re still only an hour by car from Milan and 30 minutes from quaint Genoa.
The point of this boutique hotel in Piedmont is that it’s a destination to settle in, and stay awhile. It’s rustic, but yet elevated in design for those who appreciate decor and interiors. It’s the kind of place you think about renting out for your family over the summer or the fall. Nordelaia is optimal for a buyout for those special birthdays and weddings, especially if you’re looking for a boutique hotel in Piedmont.
There are 12 rooms, and each is uniquely designed and appointed with beautiful linens and serene decor. It’s understated luxury, with a high level of taste. Because the rooms have distinct design aesthetics, you’ll want to choose yours to align with your vibe. Some have fireplaces and big steel tubs, with baths that are all unique. The main alignment is Nordelaia is modern farmhouse chic throughout.
No matter what time of year, the room rates will not break the bank. Rooms can range from €220 at low season to around €600+ during high season.
Because of the remote location, the food at Nordelaia is worth staying in for a few days. The kitchen is helmed by Michelin-starred Chef Andrea Ribaldone and resident Chef Charles Pearce. There are three options for dining spread over three floors. The Bar & Bistro is casual chic, with the famed tajarin egg pasta with ragu sauce, lasagnas and risottos. The fine dining menu of L’Orto focuses on fish and vegetables, with tasting menus of three to five courses.
Everything from cooking classes, wine tasting, vineyard walks and cycling through the Italian countryside are on the menu. On the property, there’s a full-service spa, gym and infinity pool overlooking the scenic hills. Even if you do nothing at all other than sit by the fire, you’ve done enough. While this is a boutique hotel in Piedmont, it has all the full-service amenities you would want.
