About Steve and Frances
We are Steve and Frances and are originally from Glasgow in Scotland. In 2013 we decided to take the plunge and follow our long held dream of moving to Italy and trying to live a more sustainable life. We bought a property in a small hamlet with an acre of land that needed a little TLC. Working hard but enjoying every minute of it we have almost finished restoring the house. We now have 2 small hazelnut groves that we take care of, a substantial vegetable garden and even some small fruit trees. Last year we adopted our sweet dog Lilla from the shelter. This year we have added some chickens. We travelled a lot in Italy when looking for our house and fell in love with Piemonte. Its scenery, pretty towns, friendly people and of course the weather were all big attractions but most of all it is the respect for food, wine, the traditions of producing them well and the many festivals that celebrate them tha0t we love most about living here. Come STAY!
Why Steve and Frances chose Dogliani
Stay Bel Piemonte is situated in a traditional Italian borgata (hamlet). We are in the midst of a small friendly farming community engaged in cultivating the area’s most famous products wine and hazelnuts. Peaceful and tranquil we are only 2.5km from the pretty town of Dogliani with its markets, bars and restaurants and perfectly situated for visiting the Barolo wine region, the mountains and the Ligurian coast. We want to share our love of this beautiful area with others and if you’re interested you can also learn a little about our lives here on our small farm. Eating is an obsession in Italy and no more so than here in Piemonte. The restaurants are extremely high standard, full of local specialities and wine to die for, we can recommend some of our favourite places and you’re sure discover a few of your own.

Lovely place, lovely people
This is the most wonderful place to stay!! Frances and Steve are the most welcoming and lovely hosts you could ever hope to meet. Where else would you stay where they provide complimentary items in the bathrooms and kitchen? They even gave us a change of towels midweek! They said that they consider their clients and how tired they may be after travelling. So we had all the little things to make it homely immediately. We found the whole place completely spotless. We also had no problem with their Wifi. We adored sitting out on the patio and watching the glorious scenery. We cannot recommend this beautiful place more highly, but it is the friendliness and caring attitude of Frances and Steve that makes it one hundred percent! Thank you.
The view, the view, the balcony, and the view. Beautiful flat in the hills yet closeTo town.
Steve and Frances are the quintessential hosts. They are very responsive, and they are willing to offer recommendations . We enjoyed the beautifully designed flat. The well outfitted kitchen and living space suited thefour of us well. The beds were very comfortable and each bedroom has its own bath. Our stay was too short and we are planning for longer visits in the next two years. Conveniently located near town, local wineries, and local farmers. The farm to table culture and friendly community made this visit all the more special. If you want to stay in Piemonte this is THE place to stay with superior hospitality, beautiful flat, and did I mention, the view from the balcony. Thanks Steve and Frances!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and the traditions of this special area.It was a pleasure to host you all and we would be delighted to welcome you back.
Udsigt i Piemonte
Højt oppe ude på landet med den mest fantastiske udsigt over det sydlige Piemonte. Et sødt værtspar der også delte ud af deres produktion af frugt og grønt. Stedet er et godt udgangspunkt for besøg i de kendte vinbyer og Alba. Vi kan anbefale stedet på alle måder.
Prachtige accommodatie met een fantastisch uitzicht. Goede uitvalsbasis voor fietsers en cultuursnuivers! Heerlijke vakantie gegarandeerd!
Thank you so much for the lovely review. It was a pleasure to host you all. Hope you make it back sometime
il soggiorno ideale per una fuga dalla città
Steve e Frances ci hanno accolto nel loro appartamento con simpatia e calore. L'appartamento è spazioso, pulito e ben arredato e ha una magnifica terrazza dove puoi godere del caratteristico panorama delle Langhe. I nostri bambini hanno potuto apprezzare la vita di campagna, aiutando Steve e Frances nell'orto e prendendosi cura delle simpatiche galline del pollaio. Da tornarci appena possibile!
Grazie, è stato un piacere. Saremmo felici di ospitarvi di nuovo.
You will be spoiled for choice of places to visit and things to do. We are surrounded by pretty hilltop towns such as Monforte d’Alba, Murazzano & La Morra and are about a half hour drive from the larger towns of Mondovi with it funicular, Alba home of the white truffle and the foodies paradise of Bra.
We are also only a stone’s throw from the UNESCO world heritage site of the Langhe-Roero and Monferrato where you can sample some of the best wines in the world and enjoy the stunning views over the vineyards.
Historic Turin is just an hour away, as is the Ligurian coast where you can explore some of the famous resorts of the Italian Riviera as well as the great port city of Genova.
Prefer the mountains, the Alps are also close at hand.
