La Toretta is set on the first hill outside Alba, less than a kilometre from the old town (which is just a 10-minute walk away), and offers guests a beautiful view of the town’s famous towers.
To really enjoy your time in any place you visit, it helps to know a bit about its traditions.
La Torretta is a recently renovated Ciabòt, a small building that satisfied the everyday needs of those who worked the land every day, used to store tools and equipment or to take shelter from sudden storms. La Torretta is a guardian, keeper of the memories of generations both happy and sad, of arrivals and departures, of plentiful harvests and years of drought, of childhood games and the stories told by their grandparents.
La Torretta nestles amidst nature and silence, with a private garden that is almost entirely fenced in and suitable for children. The house has a functional kitchen with a double sofa-bed. The bedroom on the upper floor is the real jewel of the house, with a wooden-beamed ceiling that will take your breath away.
Guests can relax on the spacious terrace and admire the view that stretches as far as Monviso on the horizon, or the welcoming arched veranda that overlooks the towers in the town below.

Cradle of the Langhe
Alba is the cradle of the Langhe and has solid historical roots, thanks mainly to its gastronomic heritage: truffles, pastries, wine and wine bars where you can taste it at its best are the corollary to this beautiful medieval town.
Its towers continue to symbolise a taste for freedom, a sense of independence, a means of aggregation developed from the hillside suburbs towards the centre and not vice versa. Leaving this cradle you will easily come across numerous medieval castles, donjons and small forts scattered throughout the towns and villages.
