We have stayed at La Contea twice, both in October around the time for the wine harvest and wine festival. The rooms might not be the must luxurious, but they are authentic and charming in harmony with the ancient spirit of the beautiful village of Neive. The staff is very friendly, you feel like a part of the family and the food and wine in the restaurant is simply heavenly. The homemade pasta with white truffles, the green gnocci with cheesesauce, fried rabbit with black truffle sauce, ...I could go on. All accompanied with the ecologically produced Contea Barbaresco. We will definately be back.
