Why Stay At Relais Bella Rosina
This farmhouse-turned-hotel outside Turin, Italy is an ideal Piedmontese escape.
Just outside Turin, Italy, the tiny town of Fiano curves around the vast La Mandria Park. It's there, in a stone farmhouse-turned-hotel on a 25-acre former hunting ground, that a clutch of Italian staffers welcomes well-heeled Europeans to their hidden, countryside escape. The experience is full of regional touches that connect visitors to the Torino landscape (closer to Geneva than to Venice). Twenty-one wood-beamed guest rooms are furnished with locally made wrought-iron beds; the serene Beauty Farm spa uses Piedmontese ingredients in body treatments such as the signature red-wine wrap. And unlike many of Italy's historic estates, Bella Rosina has entered the 21st-century with an impressive roster of eco-friendly initiatives, from solar-powered heating to the strict use of only biodegradable products.
The outdoor pool is the place to be at sunset, when wild deer graze in the nearby foothills.
The on-site restaurant is also regionally focused: Chef Stefano Sforza whips up dishes using ingredients grown in the hotel's garden (everything from nettles to Umberto tomatoes).
Arrive at Torino Caselle Airport (TRN) which is approximately 24 miles from the Relais. Anticipate about 50 minutes of travel time.Via Agnelli, 2 | Parco Regionale La Mandria, Fiano, Italy
