Beautiful property set amongst the vines. Comfortable, clean room overlooking the vineyard of Cascina Barac. Excellent location and easy to visit Barolo, Barbaresco and many other wonderful vineyards. The breakfast was adequate and staff friendly when you saw them. It was difficult to obtain information about surrounding areas as little English spoken. We were given a lovely bottle of wine... More

We stayed at Barac for a couple of night early june. The best part of it is the location, in the middle of the vineyards with nice views over the hills and the town of treiso from every room. Also perfectly located to reach Barbaresco, Barolo, Treiso and nearby towns. The rooms are pretty standard level, only the size changes.... More

Great location central to get around the wine towns of Piedmont. A bit hard to find but I think most similar places are! Our room was big and had amazing views of the hills, they gave us a bottle of wine for staying there, and glass upon arrival... so after a long travel that was nice. It was very quiet... More

The house is in a beautiful hill, in the middle of vineyards and green fields. We visited Cascina Barac in August and we had a really good time here. The surroundings (of hotel and beyond) are just fantastic. The house is airy and spacious (I know there were other guests but never really saw much of them). Our room was... More

We were looking for a small but typical place close to Alba. Stumbling over Cascina Barac on the Internet took us in immediately. We booked, we arrived and everything was just perfect. The staff is very polite, competent and greet you with a very warm welcome. Our whole stay kept on the quality we were expecting from the web-page. Really... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Cascina Barac. Rooms are quite nicely decorated, very comfortable bed and the room is outfitted well with a spacious, full bathroom. The dinner we had was wonderful and the service was excellent. We stayed during the fall so the hills were alive in color from the vineyards. A little difficult to find at... More

We started our trip to the Piedmont by bus from our hotel L'Approdo to the Rapollo train station, then the train to Genoa and bus to the airport to pick up a car which took about 2 hours. The trip to Alba was pretty straight forward on the freeway, but fortunately I was able to save the map that got... More

Lovely spot with a beautiful view - quiet if you are not over the gravel parking lot as we were. As for walking - only if you are a mountain goat. Cascina Barac is located within extremely steep vineyards. I hate to be a nay-sayer but, being foodies, we were first attracted by promises of "a superb and genuine cuisine... More
