Territory

La Felicina lies in the heart of the Langhe, a region of Piedmont renowned all over the world for its wine production and for the Alba White Truffle Fair.
Besides the beautiful view, you can enjoy many other activities and events in this area rich in history.

Langhe
Dreamlike hills

The “Langhe” region, located between the provinces of Cuneo and Asti in Piedmont, are divided into three different areas: the “Bassa Langa” (400m), characterized by low hills situated between the Tanaro and the Belbo rivers (the area is primarily known for its great wines and the renowned White Truffle from Alba); the “Alta Langa” (900m), bordering with Liguria and characterized by higher hills than the Bassa Langa, is covered with vineyards, cultivated fields and hazelnut groves; the “Langa Astigiana“, which is located near the Bormida river.

Historically, these are lands that have been disputed for a long time and have been divided into small feudal fiefdoms, as this explains the presence of numerous castles and fortifications located on the top of the hills.

As you travel around these gorgeous hills, the landscape surprises the visitors with everchanging views of vineyards, towns, castles, towers, chapels and churches.

To the left of the Tanaro river lies the Roero, another area characterized by great wines and cheese, rolling hills and excellent cuisine. The area (situated north west of Alba) takes the name of Roero from the ancient family who ruled the small fiefdom for centuries and presents itself to the visitor with two distinct areas.The one to the west is a uniformly undulating plateau, while the other to the east consists of a labyrinth of hills.

The main city center of Roero is Bra.

Barolo

Barolo not only gives birth to the homonymous and highly prized wine, but it is also a kind of capital for the territory: while Alba is the hub of the Langhe, due to the size of the city and the importance of its white truffle, Barolo is the second pole of attraction, around which can be found other magnificent and important medieval villages, such as La Morra, Serralunga, Castiglione Falletto, Roddi.

Alba

The ancient city of Alba reveals its charm through the beauty of its towers and houses, surviving elements of a millenary urban system. In the streets of the historic center, in addition to the dominant presence of its towers, you will admire churches, porches, public and private buildings that testify to the precious layout of the old city, preserved in all its splendor.

Cherasco

Cherasco is easily accessible by car, taking the A6 highway (Turin-Savona) and the Cherasco exit. The city has a Tourist Office, located in the main square, under the civic tower. Right there you will find all the necessary information for visiting the city and its surroundings, as well as for organized excursions, between nature and ancient monuments. A special attention goes to the local museum, Palazzo Salmatoris, which constantly hosts artistic exhibitions of considerable importance.

Barbaresco

The tower of Barbaresco, symbol of the town, stands on one of the fortresses along the Tanaro bends.
Here was the barbaric “silva”, first occupied by the Ligurians and then by the Romans: the name of the town comes from this characteristic.
