A special place... I have bene here for an aperitif, but it's so magic I booked already for a dinner. Amazing location, nice snack and amazing wines. And courtesy and wine know-how are top. A must try.

My wife and I stayed and had dinner here at peak tourist season in late July. It's a wonderful spot for both. The village of Monforte is charming and beautiful, and the surrounding Piemonte countryside and views are spectacular. The hotel is a bit hard to find but worth the effort. Parking was free and easy. The hotel is unique - a tastefully and artfully renovated home more than 1,000 years old. And the passages through the hotel feel that way, but the rooms, while oozing antique charm, are spacious, well-appointed and have very modern bathrooms. The owner, Giulio, is terrific and his hotel is clearly a labor of love. The well-stocked mini-bar was free! We had a glass of an excellent and unusual Piemonte chardonnay with a fine antipasto in the bar before dinner, which also turned out to be complimentary. The restaurant has many levels and nooks and crannies - some very secluded and romantic - and our dinner was terrific, the selection of local winesextraordinary, and the whole experience much less expensive than we expected. We asked for a recommendation of a wine from the village of Monforte in the 40-60 Euro range, and were brought an excellent one for 28 Euros. When does that happen? If you are traveling remotely close to this lovely village, stay at Le Case and have dinner. It's a memorable experience and a winner on every count!

Modern rooms built into century-old Italian houses - such a great atmosphere and so much romance! Giulio the host is super-friendly, knows the surounding wines and restaurants. The wine bar features an incredible variety of aperitivo snacks every night and the restaurant serves good Italian food. Very reasonably prized!

The property is actually much nicer than it looks in the pictures. Giulio, get some professional photos taken...:)

Not sure how you could find a more enjoyable hotel for your base in the Langhe than Le Case Della Saracca, or a more accommodating host than Guilio Perin. Monforte d'Alba is convenient for Barolo winery visits and the Saracca’s location and the views are outstanding.

Giulio has created a fantastic hotel, restaurant, and wine bar by combing and renovating adjoining stone building, the oldest dating over 1,000 years old. No attention to detail has been missed and the architecture/design work is fabulous. Ancient and modern aesthetics combine to create a multileveled retreat that reveals fascinating details everywhere your eyes wander. As an architecture fan and having built and renovated several homes, I was awed by Guilio’s creation. Hard to imagine the time, effort, expense that went into this project.

We were fortunate to book the Ca ‘d Camiot suite and our friends had the Dormouse suite. Sarraca's website photos do not justice to these two story spaces.

Le Case della Saracca is very unique restaurant. The food is great and the restaurant has so much character, Since the bulilding is 1000 years old. I just fell in love with this restaurant. If you visit Piemonte make sure you don't miss it.

...and one of the best I've been to. Has all the known crus and Giulio can advise you in unknown, yet extraordinary wines. Also his kitchen surprises with fresh and tasty, simple essentials. Not to speak of the numerous hidden spaces and futuristic stairways ! Really top !
