Located in the heart of the Piedmont vineyard region, a region famed for its wines, cheeses, and white truffles of Alba, the Relais San Maurizio is where time slows down and lets you immerse yourself in experiences that will soothe your senses and spirit. In 1619, Cistercian monks built the San Maurizio monastery on the ruins of a former chapel. The following centuries saw the property through several different lives, finally arriving at its current incarnation as a luxury spa hotel in 2002. It is a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux collection, the Leading Hotels of the world and it also houses the Michelin starred ‘Guido da Costigliole’ restaurant. The hotel’s frescoed halls, guestrooms and suites, the delightful gardens and the park with centuries-old trees are all truly charming. You can visit the spa’s salt cave, the wine hammam and soak up the vineyard vistas from the heated outdoor pool.


Relais San Maurizio is located in Santo Stefano Belbo commune of Cuneo, Piedmont in Northern Italy. The hotel is less than a 2-hour drive from the Milan, Genoa and Turin airports. Asti is the nearest railway station, around 25 kilometres from the hotel.


A sense of history and character is infused in every aspect of the charming hotel and grounds, from the original stone façade to the gorgeously tended vineyards and olive tree groves. The section that once accommodated the monks now houses 36 rooms, each one with distinctive characteristics and elegant décor, including 6 exquisite gem-themed Grand Luxury suites.
