Villa Giara is an 'Italian Country Inn' in Calosso, Piemonte, the famous wine and truffle region of Italy. Piemonte was recently named by Lonely Planet travel guides as the #1 region in the world you 'must' visit next.
Villa Giara is composed of two country houses, with a total of ten guest rooms, all en suite. Villa Giara sits atop a hill with beautiful, sweeping panoramic views of rolling hills and vineyards; in the distance, you view the village of Calosso, with its castle and cathedral.
We are sorry, but we can't host pets or children at Villa Giara. 13 and older, please.
All our guest rooms are en suite, and most offer sweeping vineyard and mountain views, or look out to the historic hilltop town of Calosso. Some rooms have French doors, with a balcony or terrace. All are furnished to the highest standard, and offer privacy and comfort.
A delicious breakfast is included for all guests, and served from 8.00 to 10.30 in The Limonaia Room.
Wi-Fi is available throughout both houses, and is offered at no charge to all guests.
Guests are free to roam the gardens or walk the nature trails of Villa Giara, or just sit and take in the view in one of our idyllic resting spots.
