Good Langhe Advice
We had 1 week at Ca del Lupo on an organised walking trip with an English company, we found the staff at the hotel great, and the food and wine fabulous,
I found the hotel furnishings a bit too 'clinical', the rooms were too sparse, no comfy chair to sit in, and no way to heat the room up if it was cold and damp, which it was, or at least to have the towels rails on to dry clothes, and also I think they needed some sort of lounge area, not just a table and chairs in the main dining area. La Morro - 3 nights
A bit expensive for the size of room and Hotel location, Classic with balcony, fabulous breakfast, but I found the hotel in an odd place, and did not find anything of real interest in the Village itself, and if you came to Piedmont to just this location I think you would be disappointed not being in a 'village'.
Great view from the top of the village of course.
Had dinner one night at Bovio? and found it and the staff a little bit 'stuffy', but maybe that is just us. Neive - Villa Lauri
Very glad you recommended this village, it was simple, again not much to it, but we enjoyed our walks there every day, and had a couple of simple meals at the local restaurant, but we did have 3 fabulous meals at the La Cantina Rondo underneath Villa Lauri, delightful man and his wife the chef, very helpful with wine and food, and we loved it.
The lady of the Villa Laura was very helpful also, we had the room with the balcony, lovely views, very comfy.Andrew's reply:
Wow, what a superb report on your trip. Thank you very much for sharing and with so much really excellent detail too!
I'm so pleased too that you enjoyed Neive and the Villa Lauri - this is one of my favourite villages in the area and the Villa Lauri is the place I always choose to stay. The photo on this page was taken from there.
