Benevello Holidays

Benevello is a one-road village that snakes its way through some of the most foodie-friendly countryside in Italy.
On the surface, it’s an unassuming place. A smattering of trattorias squeeze between well-worn houses with wrought-iron Juliet balconies. And the little piazza stars the Parrocchia di Benevello – an antique church with copper and gold brickwork.
Dig a little deeper, and you’ll discover that Benevello is one of the most exclusive foodie hideouts in Italy. The restaurants might look homely, but the chefs are award-winning. The risotto is some of the best on the planet and plates often look too good to eat.
Relais & Châteaux and Michelin have a foothold here too, so the handful of hotels in town are seriously luxurious (we’ve handpicked a converted 19th-century farmhouse with wide-open country views for our collection). Benevello’s foodie credentials don’t stop there, either. It’s the first village in the rippling hills of the Langhe – one of the top wine-making regions in Italy. 
Fancy a change of pace? Head for the cathedrals, markets, wine bars and Michelin restaurants of Alba. This little city is only a 20-minute drive away from Benevello. Bra – home of the Slow Food movement – is just up the road, too.

Flight Information

The easiest way to get to Benevello from Turin Airport is by car – it takes around an hour and 40 minutes. Prefer public transport? It’s possible to travel to Benevello using a combination of trains, metros and buses, but it’s a complicated route that can take the best part of the day, so we’d recommend car hire or a private transfer.

Visa Information

At the current time, British citizens do not require a visa to visit Italy.


Whilst tipping isn’t embedded into Italian culture it is always appreciated as an acknowledgement of good service. Nowadays people generally round up a bill in a bar or cafe and leave 5-10% extra on a restaurant bill. Taxi bills are usually also rounded up.
On guided tours/excursions, it is customary to leave a token of appreciation for the driver and guide.
On small group escorted tours, it is customary to leave a token of appreciation for the driver and guide at the end of the tour.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Italy is Italian. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
