Bordering France and Switzerland, northwest of Italy is Piedmont: a region that is true to the meaning of its name – foot of the mountain. Besides the picturesque landscape of mountains, Piedmont is known as a haven for Italian wines, white truffles, magnificent buildings, famed museums, idyllic towns and villages, and some of Italy's best restaurants. It is also where the slow food movement began. Piedmont is truly a rare gem and a perfect place for eco-tourists too. It is home to several eco-sustainable hotels, lodges, and resorts, dedicated to preserving the environment and eco-friendly practices. Here are six lodges worth adding to your itinerary.
