16° Festival del Tartufo Bianco - 7 nights

Time for Truffles!

The highly prized tuber is there but you cannot see it, as it stays hidden underground to mature until its characteristic fragrance attracts the nose of a trained dog. That is when the celebration of the palate begins. All it takes is a little grated truffle over a dish of tajarin noodles, raw meat or an egg fried in butter to unleash an explosion of the senses. For us, it is a not-to-be-missed event that has been repeated for the last 16 years. Playing rounds of golf on the Piedmont links of Villa Carolina and Colline del Gavi tops off the celebration.

Albergo L'Ostelliere Sup
The Ostelliere is definitely a venue worth discovering. This estate, which dates back to the XVII century, is a dreamlike hotel in the middle of Gavi vineyards! Moreover, you will have the chance to play on 4 nearby, extremely well-kept golf courses. The good first impression of this typical upper-class Piedmont hotel will be immediately confirmed. The minimalistic interior design of this building will surprise you! Pictures and antique furniture are combined with old, multicolor buckets to form an evocative venue. A multilingual staff will provide you with a professional service satisfying all your wishes. Another important highlight is the hotel's restaurant "La Gallina" boasting a refined, excellent cuisine. In summertime, you can taste local specialities on the large, panoramic terrace. Speaking of wine-tasting, you will get the chance to taste prestigious wines such as Gavi di Gavi, Dolcetto and Barbera, in one of the wine cellars in the basement of the estate. Don't miss out on it!

Golf Club Colline del Gavi
Opened originally as the Golf Club Riasco, the Colline del Gavi changed the name it had had for several years, in order to better collocate its geographic position. In fact, it is located amongst the vineyards of a hilly region wedged between Liguria and Piedmont and known precisely for the Gavi wine also referred to as Cortese, a white produced here in the province of Alessandria. The 18 holes, inaugurated in 1998, extend over 110 hectares, utilizing the morphology of the terrain including woods, hills, streams and ponds, which affect no less than nine holes. The course was designed with the goal of entertaining yet all the while challenging player's skills: natural obstacles such as trees and bodies of water make each hole different, constantly stimulating the need for new strategies. Add to that the differences in levels of the course which demand strong physical resistance.
In addition to the championship course, there is a 9-hole executive course with Hole 1, the most famous, which is proudly considered by members as "probably the most difficult par 3 in Italy". The other holes also require a high level of experience, being very narrow and insidious due to the bunkers defending the green.
Equally delightful is a stop at the end of the match in Cascina Spinola, a renovated historic farmhouse housing a charming and cozy restaurant just meters from the modern clubhouse.

Golf Club Villa Carolina
From the very first moment, Villa Carolina Golf Club will fascinate you, as soon as you leave the provincial road connecting Novi Ligure to Ovada and take the avenue, lined by centuries-old chestnuts, that leads to the clubhouse. The clubhouse, an eighteenth century villa, carefully restored according to listed buildings rules, offers a range of facilities in the heart of a big park: both belonged to a noble family of Genoa and in 1992 were acquired by a group of 5 founding partners. Nowadays in the estate there are two 18 holes golf courses, tennis courts, a swimming pool and several dwellings, some made from the renovation of ancient farmhouses. The historical imprint, but also the familiar atmosphere defines the charm of a club where you really feel at home. The "La Marchesa" course was the first created and alternates an American style - long fairways, light undulating grounds, large greens - with more delicate holes as the 10th, 11th and 12th, that leave little margin for error. The "Paradiso" course, with its back 9 holes completed in 2014, is much more hilly, with more important height drops and rather insidious greens. The most beautiful spots are to be found on the 7th hole's tee of "La Marchesa", a 305m par 4, from which, with a little luck, you will see many ducks and herons in the nearby stream; the 11th hole, a 402 m par 4, stunning in its natural beauty, is running through the woods without any intervention on the ground; after the second shot, getting closer to the green, in some seasons you can see deer grazing the grasses. The most refined dining, (and the best value for money) is undoubtedly here: chef Carlo Parisio prepares unmissable dishes as his Gnocchi with Grana cheese cream or the Turkey stuffed with water chestnuts.
