Piemonte feels like our little secret. Good thing, because if word got out, we’d have to share it. Out here, charming inns act like mile markers along spectacular bike routes through rolling hills of vines, hazelnut groves and secluded villages. As the home of Barolo, Barbaresco, great pasta (which we’ll learn to make with an expert chef), the region tastes as good as it looks. Then, it’s off to an unforgettable afternoon with a real trifulao (truffle hunter) in search of the prized white truffle of Alba.

The best way to see the world

This is our 10th Butterfield Trip. It remains the best way to see a region. Nothing beats vigorous activity during the day and luxury at night. Bespoke trips for a large group are cost-effective and totally your own. We loved our guides Denis and Jerome this month in Loire, France. Amazing trip. With B&R you have access to private homes, private experiences, and people and places you would never meet otherwise.
