Le Case della Saracca is unique and wonderful in so many ways. My friends and I have stayed there 3 of the past 5 years, and plan to go back next year. The inn itself is a fun mix of medieval and modern. You feel as if you are staying in the basement of an ancient castle, which to a... More

This six room lodging in buildings going back as much as a thousand years was the outstanding find of this and several other trips to Italy. The combination of ancient stone buildings with high style glass walkways and steelwork is stunning and fascinating. The owner, Giulio, was very gracious and welcoming and also runs a fine, small, reasonable restaurant and... More

We've been to Le Case della Saracca many times for drinks and dinner, but never stayed there before. We went with friends this time and thought it would be good to try the accommodation. We weren't disappointed. The rooms are all individually designed and furnished. Well equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, biscuits and jams. The fridge is full... More

The most amazing hotel experience ever. In a tiny alley in this pittoresque village, you'll find three houses next to each other which looks more like they will fall down in a short while, but when moving indoors you're speechless. Inside this unique building there i s just six rooms, but all different styled and classy. And the small grotto-like... More

We chanced upon this lovely wine bar in this out-of-the-way spot a few years ago and were so impressed with the wine, food and ambiance that when we returned this summer, we stayed at the inn for 2 nights. It is close to all the wineries in the Barolo region. This is a renovated medieval building with spacious rooms and... More

What a traveler's paradise. Tucked into a hillside cranny off a narrow village street, this place was an awesome surprise that includes monastery-like digs accompanied by glass pathways to allow one to see the almost archeological foundations. The spot also has an EXCELLENT restaurant and bar with international night life in an intimate setting. Giulio is extremely hospitable and made... More

This is a great place to stay. The architecture is very unique. Our room was quite nice. It was 2 levels and had a a nice balcony and kitchen in addition to the large bedroom and bath. The wine bar is fantastic and serves many good wines by the glass. They serve food during a happy hour. We dined at... More

What is Giulissimo? It's the best host you can imagine. Yes, Le Case della Saracca are very stylish and with most of the comfort (we just missed 2 comfortable chairs to relax) you expect when you do a trecking, dining and wine tasting trip to Monforte. Others may have this as well. What they don't have is the "patrone" Guilio,... More

We travel to europe every fall and try and stay in cool, fixed up medieval buildings. Giulio has done an amazing job with Seracca and ranks among the best we have experienced. Best enoteca/cave EVER. Make sure you have dinner there. We ate there 2 out of 3 nights. Best appetizers. We were on a bike trip and found the... More
