We stayed at the Hotel in September of 2015 where we started a walking holiday for seven days. The warmth shown by Carlo and his team was sincere and homely. The stay was very comfortable, clean and excellent location for spotting butterflies and wild flowers in the wooded walks. The highlight of the two evenings was Carlo's food, it was... More

A few years ago, we completed a week long walk through the Piedmonte, ending in Cortemilia at the Villa San Carlo. It was late November. Despite the hotel closing the next day for the winter, and being the only guests, the Zarri family insisted they prepare our dinner to celebrate the end of our walk. They delivered one of the...

We stayed at the Villa San Carlo from Sep 27 to Oct 2, 2015 - it was 5 days of a 24 day trip through Italy - and it was definately one of the highlights for us. From our first meal- my husband and I just looked at each other - and said yes this is what we came to... More

Chef Carlo & Paola Zanni provided impeccable service, incredible food and all the warmth and hospitality we had hoped for on our trip to Cortemelia. Cortemelia is not a tourist area but a convenient place to base your travels in the area. I recommend this hotel for anyone traveling in this area and we look forward a return visit.

The Hotel San Carlo was the first stop on our walking tour of Piedmont. What a superb start. We received a warm friendly welcome. Our room was clean & comfortable although the furnishings were a little tired. The food is the star of this lovely hotel. We ate dishes we would never have dreamt of eating. We stayed three nights...

My husband and I spent three nights at this wonderful inn in early September and it was one of the best experiences of our trip. Our room was spacious and opened onto a patio. We were able to keep the door open and enjoy the mountain breeze all night. But the FOOD and service is what is so incredible. We... More

We booked in Villa San Carlo on the back of TripAdvisor reviews. We were not disappointed from the offset the hotel proved to be friendly with the added advantage of a pool which was great after a long (slow) drive down from Lake Garda. The village of Cortemilia is very interesting with a good story, I will let you discover... More

My wife, daughter and I were fortunate to spend nine wonderful days with Carlo Zarri and his beautiful family at the Villa San Carlo Hotel in Cortemilia. Each day was an extraordinarily wonderful adventure, not only for travel but for Carlo's gourmet evening meals. Cortemilia put us at the "center of the universe" for visits to fantastic wine and cheese... More

The trip was absolutely amazing. I have so many wonderful memories that I have been sharing with people since my return. Even so, I cannot recapture the magic of simply being immersed in such a beautiful culture among such beautiful people. The sights, the sounds, the textures of the landscape, the tastes and aromas... All were far more than I... More

We stayed one night during a driving tour of the Piedmont. It was fun driving through the winding roads through the mountains and we arrived tired and ready for a pleasant evening. The hotel was comfortable, the people were welcoming, the room was pleasant. The town has a few good walks and very picturesque views. The exceptional thing was the... More
