Family vacations in the Langhe are not for everyone! They are definitely something alternative to the “usual vacation,” but we are sure they will leave you surprised!
FAMILY HOLIDAYS IN THE LANGHE
Holidays for families: the Langhe region offers something for everyone!
Of course, we can help you plan your family vacation in the Langhe! But if you already have your vacation planned, you could also think about a single family day or a weekend of experiences suitable for young and old alike.
You can have truly unique experiences in the Langhe
We at SlowDays have come up with special experiences perfect for spending one or more unforgettable days that will remain a beautiful memory in your family album.
Let’s begin understanding what you can do in the Langhe as a family!
The Langhe is located in southern Piedmont, a hilly area surrounded by vineyards with small villages, castles, and wineries! You may often consider it a vacation for “grown-ups,” wine lovers, or even connoisseurs. It is so without a doubt, but not only!
We at Slowdays know what family on vacation is all about. There are many needs to reconcile: parents want to enjoy a beautiful place and some relaxation, and children are rightly entitled, depending on their ages, to experiences that can intrigue and entertain them. Let’s say that if the children are fine, the parents are fine, too, right?
HERE ARE OUR PROPOSALS FOR THE
FAMILY VACATIONS IN THE LANGHE
The hills of the Langhe are perfect for Ebike excursions with the whole family. With our trails, you won’t have to worry about going too hard, even if you have carts and seats to accompany your beautiful electric bikes!
PRICES ARE ALWAYS PER FAMILY GROUPS (more details inside the products)
ADVENTURE IN THE LANGHE FOR YOUNG AND OLD
What if I told you we could organize a family adventure in the Langhe? Sure, the ideal is to gather a small group of parents and children and entrust us to manage this unique and exciting event!
Maybe you could do it for a birthday, to celebrate any occasion, or just if you need a day outdoors!
Learning archery, orienteering in the woods, and passing tests cooperatively between parents and children will be unforgettable memories in your family albums!
Don’t you know that the Langhe is best known for truffles and Stradivari, such as Barolo and Barbaresco?
You will say, “And what does this have to do with traveling with children and family vacations?” In our opinion, very much!
For example, we might suggest the exciting experience of searching for truffles in the woods of the Langhe. It can be conducted in virtually all seasons and is a perfect activity for families with children. Children will immediately become attached to the “trifolao” dog, all intent on sniffing through the woods in search of the precious mushroom.
The experience you find here is designed for adults with a final lunch, but we can undoubtedly adapt it for families with a more informal lunch at the end of the search.
WALKS IN THE ROERO, EVEN WITH CHILDREN
In this case I propose this trek that can be “shortened.” So you can modulate your children’s desire to walk. A nice, quiet, very scenic walk that ends with a good lunch!
Roero, a very diverse and almost rugged land. A very intriguing territory.
A CHEESE TASTING
Maybe your children don’t like cheese that much. But if you want to combine a very nice time in contact with nature, with a wonderful and tasty cheese tasting for you parents, I have the ideal tour for you!
How can we trust?
Perhaps better to let our clients do the talking!

Discover the family holidays we have organised for Viviana
Where to take children on vacation? Family vacations are in the Langhe!
But in the Langhe, of course, as Viviana did!
We at Slowdays are convinced that the Langhe is an excellent place for a family vacation and if you choose our experiences, you can enrich it even more.
A few months ago, Viviana contacted us to ask for help organizing a vacation for her husband and two children/kids. It’s not easy, especially when the children are already grown up, they start to get bored with everything we parents propose, and we would like to see them break away from their cell phones for a few hours!
Said and done! Here’s what we arranged for Viviana:
- A lovely farmhouse in the Langhe for kids, or one that was kid-friendly anyway (needless to say…it was a farmhouse with a pool, being in July, the choice was welcome!).
And then we enriched the short getaway with experiences that were curious for adults, and that could be enjoyed by children as well:
- Viviana and her little group experienced a day as beekeepers in Alta Langa, exploring the magical world of bees and honey;
- They tasted the extraordinary “round and gentle” of the Langhe, the excellent Hazelnuts that give rise to many typical products and delicious sweets.
- They had a nice Ebike ride among the vineyards and a picnic…but I don’t want to reveal more!
Do you want to know the cost of the package we built for this lovely little family?
It cost 650 euros for two nights and four people!
In the Langhe with children, what to see?
We take the liberty of giving you some suggestions for your vacation in the Langhe with children. It is true that there is no sea in the Langhe, but there can be so many activities to do in the Langhe with children!
While adults are glazing their eyes looking at the windows of the countless wine shops in Barolo’s central street, children can safely run and wait for their parents in front of the entrance to Wimu Barolo. This is an actual interactive wine museum that will take you on a journey inside the world of wine, from the vineyard to the glass through the history of Italy. It features games and quizzes for children, and at the entrance you will also be given a treasure map that will allow children to have fun while learning a lot!
What to do in the Langhe if it rains? Of course, visit the Wimu!
Barolo Chapel is a must-see stop on family vacations in the Langhe region
You know, a great way to get children walking is to promise them a reward!
In our opinion, discovering a small, colorful church in the middle of the vineyards might make them hop like the roe deer you might occasionally encounter among the vineyards!
This beautiful and incredibly unique chapel was commissioned by Mr. Ceretto, one of the most famous wine producers in the Langhe. It is said that over a glass of wine, shared with architect Tremlett, they came up with this original idea, which has now become a must-see destination for the many tourists visiting the Langhe.
Starting from La Morra, you can choose one of the paths that will take you right there in front, or if you want, we at Slowdays could give you a trail to follow on your cell phone and maybe organize a final tasting based on hazelnuts or excellent Barolo wine!
Here you can find our article on the beautiful chapel of Barolo la Morra.
And then, of course…the beautiful giant benches of the Langhe!
By now, they are very famous and scattered in different regions, but we in Piedmont, at least for now, can boast the most significant number! They are in the Langhe and Monferrato. You can find a map of all the big benches here, which is constantly being updated. Here we tell you about an itinerary you can take with your children to discover the benches…it will be a great way to keep them sound in the car with their noses stuck to the window to ensure they don’t miss a single one.
They are all somewhat hidden, and you often have to walk a few stretches to encounter them…a good reason to get some exercise!
