“Difficult to find but worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2007

This agriturismo is in the area of Monferrato in Piedmont which is rightly famous for its excellent food and not for its pretty villages or scenery . So don't be disappointed if Vignale Monferrato doesn't quite meet expectations. It certainly isn't one of Italy's most picturesque villages. Having said that the property Dré Casté is extremely pleasant. It is a "palazzetto signorile" ie more of a stately town house than a cascina or farm house. The rooms upstairs are very well furnished with antiques and beautifully frescoed. We didn't have the en suite bathroom but didn't have to share and it was down the corridor, large, light and charming with a nice bath tub as well as shower which you don't always find in Italy.
However, the point of coming here is to eat and drink and not drive anywhere afterwards. Our dinner consisted of an antipasto of salumi and a delicious cold ratatouille, a savoury leek tart, cotechino with fonduta, fried aubergines with cream cheese, caprino with mostarda.....First course agnolotti al burro and fettucine with cabbage and sausage, main course roast pork with carrots and baby onions..three different deserts. 27 euros. plus 12 for an excellent bottle of superior barbera and 60 for b&b. I won't tell you what we had for breakfast, you can find out for yourselves! Highly reccommended.

Stayed here in late March 2007. The beautiful hotel is located in a very charming Italian village. The rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable with breathtaking views of the countryside. We enjoyed three rooms which included sitting areas making them two to three times the size of a normal hotel room. Each one was uniquely decorated with painted ceilings and beautiful antique furnishings. We enjoyed an incredible eight course meal which included local wines and foods. The room, dinner and a lovely breakfast was around $80 per person making this an incredible value. I would highly recommend visiting this region of Italy and this hotel.
