This hotel is a real gem. The pictures on the website don't do it justice. It's magnificent! Finely furnished with antique furniture, clean, and quiet. The staff is lovely and the location is great. This is one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever stayed in. I can't wait to go back."
During a trip to Langa, we stumbled upon this splendid hotel by chance. The staff was kind, knowledgeable, and prepared from the very first moment when we entered the hotel with little hope of finding accommodation without a reservation. We had a stay that was nothing short of perfect, in a room that was excellently furnished, clean, and comfortable. The common areas are very warm and elegant, furnished with taste and attention to the style of the entire historic villa. It is definitely worth the trip.
The service was excellent. The location is perfect as it is halfway between Barolo and Alba. Additionally, if you want to see the castle or take wine tours, you are in the right place. Consideration: The refrigerator did not work for the entire stay, so they kept our perishable items in the restaurant. There is no laundry service and the air is too humid to dry clothes.
Hotel of the year: Casa Pavesi. Casa Pavesi has entered the race, surpassing all other candidates at the end of the year. Located at the foot of Grinzane Cavour castle, this hotel is warm and welcoming, with a beautiful view of the Langa. The rooms are cozy with wooden furnishings and fabrics. Two bonuses: one for the ironic friendliness of Paola Drocco and one for the excellent and abundant breakfast.
"Come here right away, come now; don't wait for the high season when tourists crowd this area for truffles, wines and Easter; come in the heart of winter when this little surprising building will welcome you with all its charm, today even greater. You are in the heart of the Langhe and Barolo: one step away, just above, at the top of the road, the barren rows are watched over by the large mass of the medieval Castle, home of that Order of Knights of Truffle and Wines of Alba that was once the house of Luciano De Giacomi and Renato Ratti. A few steps below, in front of the small square where today it will be an easy wonder to find a place for your car, a family of wine producers in the area has saved, transformed, and revitalized an ancient but anonymous dwelling. An iron railing protects you from the (little) traffic, then an august wooden door will open for you on the facade bordered by flowered balconies that peep through the large windows. The warm and discreet light filtering from the inside gives an even greater intimacy in the evening. The reduced ranks of the off-season and the incomplete and superfluous website are counterbalanced by the staff's availability and the charm of the interiors. The customers of the dozen rooms and suites find environments that, although born very recently, have the mark of time. Important investments (but made with good taste and heart) have recreated dreamy corners: the coziest furnishings, antique pieces, subdued tones and colors, wood and velvet, the recovered ancient fireplace, the library or conversation corner... Beautiful fairy-tale rooms and suites for unattainable dream views over the vineyards of the King of wines and wine of Kings.
