Incredible Villa close to the best Food and Wine
I would probably never be able to put in words the amazing piemotese vacation we had. Adoring its wines, cuisine, truffles and charm, we are traveling quite often to this beautiful region. Amazingly, it seems we have finally found the missing link - our "pied a terre" in the region. Clay & Tamar, the owners of a fascinating Villa near Bonvicino, and the Barolo region are an amazing couple. They were so nice as hosts, smiling, caring, well introduced, we felt like coming back home after our long journeys out in the vineyards and villages. the rooms are great, comfortable, spacious, the pool, the pizza oven, the silence, the discussions, did i already say home? I am already planning our visit next year in Piemonte, we will probably visit other wineries, search for new restaurants, but we already have our home.
Amazing property and experience
My family spent 3 weeks at VSL last summer. We love to cook, and were originally drawn to the kitchen and pizza oven at VSL. While these were the initial interest points, we quickly realized what a special property we had found. Our family stayed in the main house, which worked well for our smaller group. The property is also versatile enough to hold multiple families each of which can have their own separate living space. There are multiple indoor and outdoor spaces, including a pool, which we used throughout our stay. Clay is an amazing host, who has unique access to the food and wine community in Piedmont. Clay prepared a welcome basket for our first couple of nights, including vegetables, proteins, and wine that was perfect when we arrived. We toured several wineries together; Clay is friends and has close relationships with everyone across Piedmont, so the interactions are deeper and more personal. We learned how to make bread, and pizza, and even created a bread starter that we are still using! It’s helpful to have a car while staying at VSL, but if you wanted to come without a vehicle that’s something that Clay could work out since he drove us on all of our winery visits. At one point during the trip, our son was sick and Clay arranged for a doctor to come to the house; he is accessible for things that happen which may be unexpected during your time in Italy. Clay has lived in Piedmont for more than a decade, so he can design a custom itinerary for whatever you would want to do. We hope to have the chance to return again!
Beautiful Home even more beautiful location
When my family stayed at the Villa San Lorenzo, we had one of the best if not the best vacation we've ever had. We were originally interested in staying in the Piemonte region because of our interest in the wine and food that this area of Italy is famous for. Clay helped us access all of the vineyards and small family restaurants that we could ever have wanted to go to because of the connections he has forged. He was a great ambassador for our trip, and helped us find all of the small local places that would normally feel inaccessible. When we got tired of eating three hour lunches and drinking some of the best wines in the world, the Alps and the Ligurian Sea were within two hours of the villa. This is a truly beautiful home in an even more beautiful region.
Fantastic trip to Piemonte! Our second trip to Pi
Fantastic trip to Piemonte!
Our second trip to Piedmont and surely our best. We were hesitant to stray away from a hotel and try renting a Villa in another country but we went for it and are glad we did. The location, amenities and layout of Villa San Lorenzo made it the perfect spot. Adding to this was the invaluable assistance and care Clay took to ensure we had the best trip possible. We are all foodies and immense fans of the region and had prior knowledge to rely on. Clay took this to another level for us. Whether it was finding a chef to cook for us at the house, to the best new place to try for lunch, the best pizza, café, and even down to setting up our truffle hunt. Clay was gracious enough to let us keep the white truffle which we shaved over tajarin we cooked at home later that evening. When we return to Piemonte, we will surely return to Villa San Lorenzo. For now, pictures evoke the great memories paired with an aged glass of Barolo.
Brian and JoAnne
I stayed with a group of fellow winemakers for a week in truffle season, and the whole experience was beyond belief. The property is gorgeous, the scenery amazing, the true chef's kitchen fully equipped, the rooms comfortable and charming. Beyond that, Clay is a gracious and informed host (not to mention master pizza chef) who can help introduce you to the food and wine of Piemonte in a way that is very rare, and leads you to the essence of the place - from pasta classes, truffle hunting, chocolate class, as well as dinner reservations, winery recommendations, etc. I can't imagine a better place to stay.
The Trip of a Lifetime
It sounds pretty cliche, but truer words cannot be spoken about our wonderful trip to Villa San Lorenzo di Bonvicino. From the moment we booked our trip (on a relatively blind internet search), Clay Thompson took complete care of ensuring that this would be an unforgettable adventure. We gathered friends and family to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. Clay arranged our entire week-long stay to include exclusive winery tours/tastings, dinners, lunches which allowed us to get a complete flavor for the people and the rich culture of Piemonte region of Italy. The property itself is a magical restoration! Plenty of room for the 12 of us to spread out, but quaint enough to enjoy time in the common areas. Situated on a hill with views of the Italian Alps, the scenery could not have been more picturesque. Put your entire holiday planning in Clay's hands and he will ensure a most extraordinary vacation!
