Stay in palatial splendour at a Piedmont hotel renowned for its slow food and fine wines, including breakfast, plus access to the Wine Bank and spa and optional four-course dinner

  • The Piedmont region of Italy near is the birthplace of the slow food ethos, specifically the town of Pollenzo. Upholding ancient farming techniques, Albergo dell’Agenzia is a proud exponent of this philosophy. It occupies the King of Savoy’s former palace – a sprawling dusky pink affair grouped around grassy courtyards.

  • Interiors have been meticulously restored to their former glory and, as well as housing guestrooms, a fine slow food restaurant, a bar and a spa, the hotel is also home to the University of Gastronomic Sciences and the Wine Bank. The latter is a huge museum that’s a veritable wine lover’s paradise, with impressive, vaulted cellars.

  • Silence is definitely golden in the tranquil surrounding grounds, where you can stroll accompanied by nothing but the sound of birdsong and the wind rustling through the trees. For more pampering, take a dip in the enticing outdoor pool, or bask in the inner retreat of the spa, at this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner.
