New Hotel Opening: Luxury Through Sustainability Casa Di Langa, Piedmont, Italy
Situated in the heart of northern Italy’s Piedmont region – famous for its prestigious wines, delicious food and grand mountains – is Casa di Langa, a new sustainable luxury hotel scheduled to open in the Northern Hemisphere’s spring this year.
Overlooking more than 42 hectares of working vineyards, the 39-room boutique hotel combines traditional Piedmontese design with sustainable practices. Each accommodation features a spacious private terrace, relaxation area and a spa-like bathroom with revitalising rain showers and calming Le Labo toiletries.
The design duo behind P+F created a property with refined Italian simplicity where the soft, muted colours of the property’s natural environment are reflected in the hotel’s rich textiles and locally sourced materials.
Using a sustainable approach to architecture and design, the duo draws inspiration from the hazelnut orchard, vegetable garden and the views of the vineyards to integrate these natural elements in their design.
Installed throughout the property and grounds, Casa di Langa features an engaging selection of world-class fine art showcasing notable Italian and American artists.
The hotel’s F&B main venue, Faula Ristorante, serves dishes based on the local harvest with attention focused on sustainable agriculture and conservation practices. The menu, designed by Chef Manuel Bouchard, will focus on traditional cuisine and innovative creations utilising local ingredients sourced from their own gardens and local producers. Fàula, meaning ‘tale’ in local Langhe dialect, is a homage to the region’s age-old tradition of families and friends spending quality time together sharing stories.
Meanwhile, at Sorì Cocktail bar, guests can indulge in wines from around the world and neighbouring vineyards, including rare bottles from its sister wineries, Vietti and Enrico Serafino.
A deep respect for the natural world and its sustainable future is ingrained in every aspect of the hotel. From a commitment to carbon neutrality to the use of 100% recycled water for irrigation, geothermal heating throughout, zero single-use plastic, PV cells, and solar panels. This deep passion for sustainable practices can be seen in every aspect of the design, construction, and operation of the resort.
