5 What to do

Wine, truffles, hazelnuts, art, food, spas, walks and cycling: Langhe and Roero offer endless ways to relax. The perfect way to forget our busy city lives for a few days.

Now that you’ve made it to La Granda, why not spend a few hours discovering the treasures of these hills? Do you love trekking and wine? Try a walk among the vineyards, perhaps with a stop in one of the local cellars. Or perhaps you love a good cycle. Or an aperitivo outside in one of Alba’s old squares. Whatever your passion, Nadia and Sandro will help you unlock the secret joys of this wonderful place.

Relax and events

At our B&B we want you to experience a few days of complete relaxation, away from the noise of your everyday life. The hills surrounding La Granda are perfect for a calming countryside walk, or lovely bicycle excursions, and we are here to help you choose the perfect path – from the Strada Romantica delle Langhe e Roero to an afternoon of trekking among the vineyards. Throughout the year the B&B is at the heart of a series of often internationally renowned events like Vinum, the Truffle Fair of Alba and the Historic Palio of Asti.

Sport and technology

We offer to arrange cycle hire and – on request – we can even provide e-bikes, to make those uphill struggles nothing but a distant memory.

A good book

Tired after a long day out? Let a good book help you relax: our library offers a selection of classics and contemporary fiction – both in Italian and English – handpicked by our younger son, an editor at one of London’s largest publishing houses.
