You name it and the Italians know how to celebrate it. We love it! Not far from the apartment, there are cheese and wine festivals, truffle festivals, vegetable festivals, a chestnut festival, the annual Montforte d’Alba jazz festival ‘MonfortinJazz’ and many, many other interesting cultural activities.
A definitive highlight is the slow food movement of The Langhe. The name says it all, it’s the opposite of fast food. You can recognise it by a logo of a snail on the door: if you’re in a hurry, you best go elsewhere. All meals are prepared on the spot, nothing is made in advance. You can taste it, trust us… It’s worth the wait. Don’t have time for an extended lunch? A visit to Eataly in Turin, a supermarket, deli and restaurant in one.
Those who love wine cannot go home without visiting one of the many wine bars that are scattered throughout the region. Get in the car, on your bike or walk through the vineyards. Drive through the gorgeous surroundings and see the vines shining in the sun. Many of the wine bars welcome guests that want to enjoy a ‘degustazione’, or a wine tasting. Salute!
