As part of a one week trip to Italy with an old friend, we just finished a too short 3 night stay in the Piemonte region of Italy, staying at Bella Baita. Our primary goal was to explore the area, hike and enjoy the mountains. The fact that we were treated like family, had wonderful meals and interesting conversation just made our trip all the better. Marla and Fabrizio gave us great recommendations for drives, hiking trails (including maps) and local restaurants. The meals we returned to every night were fresh, delicious and interesting. My favorite was the Cauliflower Flan and the Bagna Cauda, an Anchovy flavored dipping sauce. They only prepared this after determining that we did in fact enjoy "the little fishes". I am looking forward to returning for an extended stay with my wife in order to properly explore the area.
