Tour Itinerary || Terms & Conditions

Day 1.

Al Tirabuson is located appx. 90 km. east of Torino, nestled in the vineyards in the heart of the Monferrato region in Piedmont. When you arrive at Al Tirabuson, this unique boutique guest house, you will be greeted by your hosts, the owners of the guesthouse. After check in, you will have time to relax and settle into your tastefully decorated room. There is a fully equipped communal kitchen at your disposal if you are interested in making your own meal or snack. This evening there is no cooking needed, since you will be driven by your own private chauffeur to enjoy dinner in a romantic, typical Piemontese Restaurant with wines included. After dinner, you will be transferred back to your guest house.

Day 2.

After enjoying breakfast, you have the morning at your leisure, to explore the nearby town of Nizza Montferrato on your own. Your hosts can recommend several nice options for lunch where you may also be able to enjoy the famous red wine of the region, Nizza, a red DOCG wine made with Barbera grapes, whose production is restricted to 18 local municipalities centered on the town. You may even want to visit some of the local shops to purchase wine to bring back to the guest house or bring back home.

After lunch, enjoy a wine tasting with Aperitivo and a visit to a local wine cellar (self drive). If you still have room for dinner, your hosts will be pleased to recommend several restaurants for you nearby (dinner at your own cost and chauffeur available at an extra cost).

Day 3.

After breakfast, you have the morning free to explore the guest house and its surroundings. You may be interested to learn that the focus of Al Tirabuson lies on environmentally friendly tourism; therefore, they are particularly proud to use renewable energy sources such as geothermal and solar power/battery storage allowing them to be energy independent. For lunch today, your hosts will prepare a Picnic Basket for you to enjoy a romantic lunch in the vineyards.

This afternoon, your will be transferred by private car and your own chauffeur to the Bosca Underground Cathedrals in Canelli for a Spumante tasting and then to the Berta Grappa Distillery and Grappa Tasting. Dinner is on your own.

Day 4.

After breakfast, enjoy a guided visit to the local farmer’s market. Stay for lunch (at your own cost) and then return to your guest house, for some time to rest and relax. Alternatively, you can choose to  enjoy a spa afternoon in one of the various Thermal Centres around Nizza Monferrato (additional cost). Tonight, on this last night, enjoy a cooking class inhouse giving you the  “Taste of Piemonte” using seasonal products. And best of all, you get to enjoy the fruits of your labour at dinner, together with a glass of the local wine.

Day 5.

After breakfast, it is sadly time to say goodbye to your hosts and Al Tirabuson.  Even though you are leaving, these carefree moments will be a long lasting memory!

Description

Come and discover Piemonte (Piedmont) with Victours International.

 

Piedmont offers endless possibilities for wine and gastronomy lovers, and also offers culture, sports and shopping. In this region, you will find national parks and stunning vistas, including mountains with ski resorts in the west and north, and Turin with its many museums, elegant palazzi and interesting architecture. If you are interested in exploring Turin’s car industry history, a visit to the Automobile Museum, the Museo Nazionale dell’Automobile,  one of the best museums to visit in Italy, is very worthwhile.

A visit to Piedmont is a definite must for the gourmet travellers, with its world famous wines, including the “king of wines”, the Barolo, and unique food offerings such as the exceptional white truffle.

 

After you have toured the cities and towns, consider leaving the hustle and bustle of everyday life behind and enjoy carefree moments in absolute peace and harmony with nature, at this lovely boutique country house. This is the ideal place to relax and unwind, or to explore the beautiful surroundings by hiking, by bike, or even on a Vespa!
