The Residence

Ingresso Residence AlbaThe Residence “Caffè Savona” is located in the heart of the historical centre of Alba, 5 minutes on foot from the railway station, 10 minutes from the bus station and the taxi service is just few steps away.

The facility opens the doors to all those who, for work or holidays, choose to spend the days between the famous Piedmontese hills, the Langhe, Unesco Heritage since 2014. For its services and position it is ideal for who wants to stay in the City of Alba, home to  White Truffle, good feelings, cordiality and culture of the “foreigner”.

The history of the Truffle and the discover of the city of Alba begins between the walls of the historical “Caffè Savona”, of which  the Residence is part. In 1927 the enterprising Giacomo Morra starts to take interest in truffles and, eager to get Alba’s White Truffle known over the world,  “exports” it paying homage to renowned and world-famous personalities (Churchill, Marilyn Monroe, J.F. Kennedy and many more).

In 1928 he organizes the 1st International Fair of the White Truffle of Alba and since then, every year in October, the event takes unfailingly place again all around the city. It is since this moment, that the “Caffè Savona dei Morra” started to represent the place where everything ha begun; for more than twenty years it is runned by the Randazzo family, that, by restructuring it, has maintained the same features of those times still managing, however, to keep pace with the present.
