We stayed five days at Locanda La Raia and it is a real gem. Located between soft mountains you have a great view over their vineyards. Rooms (we had a large double) are stylish combining design elements with ancient furniture and hard mattresses. What is particular remarking is that style and functionality go hand in hand (which is not very often the case). The whole building is a bit noisy, but staff has an eye on night’s rest. The pool is rather small but serves its refreshing purpose - as long as you don’t want to swim, and don’t mind the children playing in it. Breakfast is served at the table, at its heart a breakfast tray with crunchy croissants, fresh fruits, bread, delicious jam, home made cookies, honey and cake (coffee, eggs, and everything else was brought on request). We ate every evening at the restaurant and - apart from the marvellous view - the food is superb, tasty, and appealingly presented (although you might have difficulties if you are vegetarian/vegan). The staff is a bit of a mixed crowd: Some are very attentive, asking pro-actively, others tend to oversee you, but the general impression is one of a very well functioning team (e.g. they put up an extra table outside when we felt uncomfortable due to the crowded restaurant). We also made use of SPA treatments (deep-tissue massage) and can recommend it. The hotel also have a well equipped small gym, which required a booking and which we used twice. The only thing to remark is that we would have wished for more consistency regarding the wearing of Covid-masks from staff and other hotel guests.…
as we brought our two children with us we had a large room right behind the reception. due to the location it was a bit noisy and the windows lead to the streetside. ask for a room with nice view and enjoy the pool. very recommendable.
The hotel is located in a strategic place, where you can rest and relaxing in a comfortable hotel with a beautiful landscape, but it is also close to big cities as Milano. Locanda is a design beautiful hotel to relax. The rooms and bed are comfortable and good space including the restroom/shower. We stayed 3 days in the hotel, but one day they did not clean the room, despite we asked twice. Can be a punctual issue, for specific reason. Breakfast is delicious. Adriana
Between Gavi and Novi Ligure, midst in the wine fields, this location can be found. The rooms are modern and nicely decorated, the bathroom is very good. The service attention is very high, all very friendly and a young team around. The restaurant is fine as well, a good and mainly local wine menue.
The Hidden Secret in Piedmont. Great welcome and care by the team especially Maurizio the Hotel Manager. Clean and inspiring place, beautiful and elegant design. Succulent food. A place te revisit again, hope soon. Bravo to the team
