Private Hills
Insider Tip: Take in the Views
Perched perfectly among vineyards of the hilltop medieval village of La Morra, The Relais Le Rocche offers modern luxury in the landscapes of Piedmont. Nestled within 25 square miles of park, guests can take in the landscapes and relax in privacy. To take in the sweeping views, the hotel offers air balloon or helicopter rides. For the wine adventurer tastings of the region’s most famous Barolo will delight. Guests can savor flavors of the region at the buffet during pre-dinner aperitifs or take in a truffle hunting excursion or cooking class. Outdoor adventurers can mountain bike or hike, or ride through the hills on horseback to soothe the soul. After adventures the outdoor pool or private outdoor Finnish sauna will take the aches away.

Known as the city of a hundred churches,  this medieval village outside of Palermo is a walk through history. Wander through the beautiful churches and buildings, even take a hike to the summit of three of churches. Discover the Spanish neighborhood built during Spanish rule.
