Trekking among the hazel groves from Villa d'Amelia Relais
- Enjoy a guided trekking excursion in the hazel groves
- Glimpse some wild animal sighting
- Admire a priceless view
During a pleasant couple of hours walk, you will have an experience in close contact with nature, among hazel groves and vineyards, chestnut and mushroom groves, soils of black truffles and the most precious white truffle of Alba. You will admire the panoramic ridges of the Langhe landscape and the spectacular view of the Piedmontese and Ligurian Alpine chain surmounted by the majestic Monviso, the king of stone. You will be guided through a varied path between flora and fauna, in which you will cross meadows with hillside flowers, wild orchids and lavender, and you will see fruit trees including apples, pears, apricots, cherries, plums, pomegranates and wild blackberries, but also tomatoes and vegetables from some vegetable gardens, along with hazelnuts, grapes and chestnuts. You will see domestic animals such as horses, truffle dogs, donkeys, cats, chickens and white doves; you will immerse yourself in the habitat where roe deer, badgers, foxes and wild boars roam at night, following their fresh tracks on the ground and you will cross a couple of tiny isolated and semi-abandoned rural villages, where time seems to stand still.
During the Second World War, groups of partisans found shelter here, and during your walk you will meet the hidden farmhouse, now restored, where Beppe Fenoglio wrote and documented some of his famous books that narrate the events of these places at that time.
You will cross part of the legendary path of the UltraTrail Barbaresco-Barolo, a fascinating footrail over a distance of 50 km that unites the two famous wine municipalities, and then reach the church of Montemarino, where the tour will come to an end.
