From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:

A nineteenth-century farm estate in the heart of Le Langhe in Piedmont, arguably Italy's best eating and wine-drinking region, the meticulously restored 37-room Villa d'Amelia is set amid hazelnut groves with views of the hillside vineyards of Barolo to the east and the snowcapped Alps to the north. Rooms offer old-school charm (four-poster beds, wood-beamed ceilings) with modern comfort (flat-screen TVs, rain showers). Treks through the adjacent woods will keep the appetite whetted for exploring the cornucopia that is Le Langhe; the enthusiastic young staff are well-versed in the tortuous terrain and can provide a GPS for your car programmed with directions to the best vineyards and restaurants.

—2007 Hot List

When to go: Spring or fall, when the intoxicating white truffles of Alba abound.

Which room to book: Suite 207, formerly the San Luigi chapel, has a mansard wood-beamed ceiling, bare stone walls, and rosette window.
