PURE GOLF PASSION AND THE GREAT RED ITALIAN WINES!
The Golf Club Le Betulle in Magnano Biellese, rated best golf club of Italy in 2013* and firmly among the first three from several years, was founded in the late 1950s. The course (18 holes, par 73 measuring 6497 meters) was designed by the famous English architect, John Morrison and, thanks to its excellent design and obstacles, it appeals to golfers at all levels. Here you can enjoy an unhurried, tranquil round in a beautiful natural ambiance.
Golf Club Ugolino: Cecil Blandford and Peter Gannon used the natural contours of the Chianti slopes to produce an outstanding course, threaded through the indigenous vines, olive trees, maritime pines and broom. The course is not long, but demands a high degree of skill. The greens are small and well defended by bunkers. The sloping fairways also present a great challenge.
Castello La Rocchetta is set in the town of Sandigliano, in the Piedmont countryside, from where you can reach Golf Club Le Betulle in about 25 minutes. Housed in a fifteenth-century castle, drags its guests in a unique and fascinating atmosphere. The rooms have everything that guests want, including a kitchenette and are decorated in warm and enveloping colors.
Tenute Sella. Starting from the late 1600s, the Sella Family actively engaged in farming, in addition to their main business, textile manufacturing. In 1671, they purchased a vineyard in Lessona, a small winegrowing area which had been well-known for centuries for the production of fine red wine, the fruit of a noble land and of a soil containing ancient marine sand deposits. The Sella Family generations that followed over the next three centuries picked up where their predecessor had left off and carried on winegrowing in Lessona.
In the heart of Chianti, just 10 kilometers from Florence is the magnificent estate of Torre a Cona, dominated by the monumental eighteenth-century villa, property of Count Rossi of Montelera. Next to the villa and surrounded by breathtaking scenery of vineyards and olive groves, your will sleep in the typical farmhouses, renovated and decorated with care by the Countess and where, in their ancient family winery, you will taste their elegant wins.
Biella, famous worldwide for its textile industries and its wool and cashmere fabrics, is home to companies like Cerruti, Piacenza, Ermenegildo Zegna, Loro Piana, just to name the most well know brads. That’s why in our town you can make luxury shopping at outlet prices. But also a place to discover wineries and producers of gorgeous red wines that have nothing to envy to other great wines from Piedmont.
And finally Florence and the hills of Chianti places well known around the world but that you will visit in a different way, aboard vintage Fiat 500 cars, crossing the Chianti countryside and stopping to visit medieval villages and wineries, tasting their wines.
