Where to eat in Piedmont? If you are asking this question, keep reading, I will give you a useful suggestion.
An estate in the Langhe
An old eighteenth-century farmhouse in a horseshoe shape, a short distance from Canelli, in the Langhe, is home to I Tre Poggi, a residence of charm and absolute excellence among Italian agritourisms. An estate of 10 hectares of hills, surrounded by vineyards, orchards and woods, a short distance from Canelli, from which the eye can take in the nearby villages of San Marzano, Bubbio and Calosso, up to the Alps, with the peaks of Monviso and of Mont Blanc.
I Tre Poggi, thanks to a skilled work based on the techniques of bio-architecture and clean energy, respecting the environment and local tradition, is proposed as a charming residence, restaurant and spa. And as an opportunity to “escape from the city”: an ideal place for relaxation, rediscovery of self and wellbeing, getting closer to nature.
The estate offers rooms declined in different “settings” (Comfort, Romantic, Deluxe, Superior) and mini apartments with kitchen and suites, for an elegant and comfortable stay. Where traditional atmospheres combine with the advantages of modernity: terracotta and parquet floors, exposed vaults, fireplaces and showers with color therapy and satellite TV.
The wellness center
At the back of the house is the infinity pool, located on a natural terrace, from which you can enjoy the enchanting view of the hills covered by vineyards. Immediately next to the Solarium area. The wellness center, set up inside the ancient barrique cellar, offers a regenerative and healthy holiday opportunity.
Equipped with a hydromassage pool, turkish bath, emotional showers, chrome and aromatherapy, it also offers treatments to reinvigorate body and spirit. Including anti-stress massage with essential oils and decontracting massage, the Hot Stone Massage – with hot lava stones slipped over the body -, the Tibetan Sound Massage – with the help of the sound of Tibetan bells -, and the Wine Tone – energizing treatment based on the beneficial properties of red grape must.
Finally, the estate is a reference place to eat in Piedmont. The Ristorante I Merlini 22, a place that combines elegance with tradition, is in fact another absolute excellence within the I Tre Poggi proposal. Here the best of cuisine and typical Piedmontese dishes – from fassona meat to the cheeses produced by local dairies, up to the wines – are proposed in a triumph of flavors, all at zero kilometers.
The white truffle of Alba and Barolo, as well as cheeses such as Castelmagno and Rasche-ra, strictly DOP. These are genuine excellences that, together with many others, have made Piedmont an favoured destination for gourmets and chefs from all over the world.
The products are offered also for sale thanks to careful choice and selection. Next to the restaurant, , there is also the Di-Vino corner, the tasting room furnished with tables resting on barrels, dedicated specifically to the discovery of local wines. Merlini 22 is also ideal for hosting baptisms, communions and confirmations, and more generally all kinds of ceremonies and receptions to bring families and celebrations together.
