I really enjoyed my 5 days here late May 2013, and would love to return. If you like something a little different from the regular (bland) chain hotels then this one is for you. Simona and Giorgio run a terrific small historic hotel in the beautiful hilltop town Bossolasco, and I found their personalized style of service was friendly, accommodating and full of integrity. We ate most days at their reasonably priced short menu restaurant enjoying some tasty and interesting local and regional dishes made right there on site by Giorgio and his team (guinea fowl with local hazelnuts; squid in a tomato, orange and pea sauce stand out well in my memory). Piero recommended excellent regional wine that didn’t break the bank too. Complementary breakfast (nice) and reliable wifi. Our quiet room had a small sitting area and private terrace allowing us to relax and enjoy the Alta Langhe vista. The hotel also offers Italian language tuition and food and cooking courses. In the mornings I brushed up my Italian conversation with Simona, who happens to be a trained translator and a very effective Italian instructor (my wife took the cooking course with Giorgio and loved it). In the afternoons we took short scenic drives to local food and wine producing areas or some of the charming small towns nearby (we enjoyed visiting Mondovi, Alba, Vicoforte, Barolo, LaMorra, Canale). Hotel Bellavista Bossolasco is definitely a tranquil and practical base for those wanting to explore southern Piedmont, especially for those guests valuing the ‘local’ and ‘small’ ethic .
