La Locanda del Melograno
Ranked #1 of 5 Moncalvo B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 19, 2013

A beautifully and stylishly restored property on the edge of central Moncalvo, ambling distance to all the great restaurants. Our room had wonderful views and was incredibly comfortable. It felt more like a hotel room than a B&B. The owners were very warm and friendly and the breakfast was delicious and ridiculously huge! I would definitely stay again!

La Locanda del Melograno is a beautiful B & B in Piemont with lovely hosts. We had a warm welcome and felt at home immediately. Our room was large with large windows to let the sun in in the morning. Everything looked new or recently renovated. And important for us: the bed had a firm mattress. The house has the perfect combination of old and new things. There is a private parking. Moncalvo is a nice little town in Piemont with at least one good restaurant (we just tried one, because it was so good). I probably don't have to mention that food and wine in Piemont is number one.

Book now, dont hesitate. We arrived late, very late and the owners (English speaking) were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble, and we settled in very quickly with some local wine. The property has been beautifully restored and the rooms are spacious and airy. Stunning views of the Monferrato countryside. Excellent breakfast.
Our only complaint, having to leave !

Room Tip: Both our rooms were fantastic.

I spent a month in La Locanda del Melograno in August/September of 2009 and it was a very lovely experience. Marina and Marco really make you feel right at home. The breakfast is great and they are willing to do just about anything for you. My company was in Moncalvo for over a year and we had many people staying at this place, and we kept returning. The location is great, right in the centre of the beautiful town of Moncalvo. Walking distance to everything.

The rooms are also very lovely, even luxurious. The views from the back balconies I must say are the best I have ever had from a hotel, just breathtaking.

It's only an hour from either Torino or Milan and is definitely worth it. Especially during one of the many festivals held throughout the year.
There is a reason they call the area around Moncalvo "Tuscany without the tourists"!

Our family (two children 10 and 13) stayed here for one night as an overnight stop on our way home to the UK after a stay in Tuscany. We received a very warm welcome from the English speaking owners and when our son needed to see a doctor they made all the arrangements and even accompanied us to translate.

We stopped on the top floor with splendid views (there is a lift). Rooms were large and beds very comfortable. There is a good sized car park at the rear of the hotel. The village is within walking distance (driving may be better as it is hilly). There are a number of restaurants here - we chose the pizzeria on the main square which was possibly a mistake in hindsight (very slow service).

Overall thoroughly recommended.

Very charming rooms, spacious and spotless (we had the junior suite, which was really big). The setting is fantastic, with a stunning view on the Monferrato countryside, ideal for a relaxing stay away from big cities. Breakfast is served (no buffet) but it is good, with home made plum cakes. The owners are very nice and polite, they just you make feel home.
Very recommended if you are looking for a relaxing experience and are sick of big standard hotel chains.
