PACKING TIPS

It’s not what you take, rather the space you should leave in your luggage to cart some of the wines, cheeses, truffles, mushrooms, amaretti and other delicacies awaiting you in this the region. No need to take a hairdryer either as they provide them.

ECO-FRIENDLY

To ensure the safety of our staff and guests during these unprecedented times, we have made the decision to temporarily close our hotel. We apologize for any inconvenience, please check back at a later time wheen travel restrictions in the area have lifted. We look forward to hosting you in the future when the world is a much safer and happier place. We appreciate you, thank you for understanding.

POOL

Outdoor pool (no diving: adults' feet can always touch the bottom).

ALSO

You could perfect your pasta-making skills with chef-led cookery classes; you’ll learn how to get your fusilli pasta springy and your farfalloni bow ties trim, followed by sublime sauce pairings. Of course, one cannot live on pasta alone, so charcuterie and pizza-making lessons will bulk up your gourmet repertoire. Wine-tasting and wine-appreciation classes are held in the cellar, which holds more than 200 vintages, and if you want to have a go at snaffling gastronomy's most-prized ingredient, take part in a truffle hunt in the local woods.

USEFUL INFORMATION

Please advise if you would like a dinner reservation.

Rooms 

The Granary Junior Suite is vast, with original terracotta floors, arched ceilings, a four poster bed and a bath overlooking the vineyards. If you’re a sucker for a vista, the Terrace Suite and the peaceful Moroccan room share a fabulous private patio. The view from the claw-footed bath in the Romeo and Juliet room is also lovely.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

La Vie serves local produce and great Piemontese wines. Chef Ian Simpson has fine-tuned his Italian cuisine; for La Vie he has crafted an elegant and imaginative menu, which includes peperoni ripieni with Roccaverano cheese, red prawn and zucchini tagliatelle, thyme-roast Piemontese beef and patate al forno. Make your dish extra decadent with white-truffle shavings – sourced in the woods nearby – and save room for the vanilla pannacotta with summer berries.

Liquid Bliss 

This little enclave is the hub of the hotel. In winter, they light a wood fire; in summer, it opens onto the courtyard. Guests can drink as late as they like on an honesty-bar basis.

Experience the Extraordinary 

You can giddily whizz down vine-strewn hills on a bike (reception have loaners you can borrow) or sedately trot through the glorious Piedmontese countryside on horseback. If you don't want to roam far from the hotel, tennis courts and a golf course can be found nearby.
