“Great place”
Reviewed July 13, 2009

We received a great welcome on arrival with a lovely bottle to local wine.
The Martinoly family was really friendly and helpful.
My husband made use of their mountainbikes (he only fell off once!?). The house is set high in a beautiful vineyard and has great views of the surrounding area. There a lots of animals around at the farm. Great courtyard for relaxing and playing with the dogs (and great for watching the lightnening by night)

The house has been very tastefully restored and there was some great antique furniture in our room.
Unfortunately we only stayed one night. We had a great evening meal and enjoyed a bottle of wine from Rivolotti over dinner. Our host kindly arranged for us to visit Rivoloti's winemaker in their winecellar in the castel in Ghemme the following day!

A great start to our holiday in Italy.

In between the Swiss alps and the Alba area, my wife and I spent two days at Il Cavenago in Ghemme.

We stayed in room 5, which was the count's bedroom back in the seventeenth century. It is a fabulous grand room that - along with the rest of the main building - has been renovated to modern standards while maintaining the original atmosphere. And everything was clean.

We arrived at noon Sunday just as the Martinoly family was getting ready to recieve a number of local parties for lunch in the restaurant. We decided to join and were treated with a meal with too many courses to count. Great food accompanied by a good wine from the extensive list.

We also had dinner Monday (just three courses, thankfully) - this time by ourselves. The restaurant only opens for non-guests during the weekend.

The courtyard was a nice place to hang out, and it was nice to have wi-fi.

The Martinoly family was friendly and helpful far beyond the call of duty. Our car had a small problem which was swiftly solved because Silvio accompanied me to a garage. And when we decided to picnic in the courtyard Sunday evening, his farther and mother were quick to offer us cold water and glasses for our wine.

  • Liked — Our room, the courtyard, the meals, the wine list, the hosts
  • Disliked — A few mosquitoes
