Hotel description

Amidst the beautiful Piedmont countryside of Northern Italy, the boutique hotel La Granica nestles into the hillside of a secluded valley, immersed in the peaceful and inspiring surroundings of its own vineyards, woods and meadows. This romantic hotel is the perfect retreat in which to unwind and relax or discover everything that Piedmont has to offer. Turin, Genoa (65 km away) and Milan are the closest cities to this boutique hotel with great historical and architectural interest and a number of cultural and social events.
Working Vineyards
La Granica was originally a grain store for the water mill of the village. The grain store has been redeveloped into the main part of this romantic hotel and the original house, built at the start of the 1700s and typical of this style of Monferrato dwelling, is now the self-catering cottage. Renovated in 2005 as a boutique hotel La Granica still manages its own vineyards.
Rooms
The six rooms at the romantic hotel La Granica have been designed in a contemporary style providing a luxurious modern environment with ample space, designer features and modern facilities. High wooden ceilings and large French windows open onto balconies and let the light flood in. Meanwhile, tailor made soft furnishings with splashes of color and fine Indian silks add a tactile element to the rooms at this boutique hotel. Romantic four-poster beds or large sleigh beds, luxurious Egyptian cottons and the rich tones of solid teak flooring coupled with the stunning Bohemian chandeliers make these rooms very special. Each room at La Granica has a LCD television with satellite channels and DVD/CD player. Each bathroom is an oasis of calm; lined with natural Italian limestone and velvet black slate they provide the perfect backdrop for the gorgeous chrome ware and sculpted limestone basins.
Your own countryside cottage
At the heart of this romantic hotel in Piedmont, a fully equipped self catering cottage retains much of the original 300-year-old structure and has been sympathetically refurbished around original features. The accommodation has independent access and offers all the same level of detail as you would find in the suites. The two-storey cottage designed for four people has two spacious double bedrooms with a large four-poster bed in one and two single sleighs in the other. The cottage also contains a bathroom with a separate shower cabinet, a large kitchen-diner complete with an extensive range of amenities, a sitting room with satellite TV/DVD and a cloakroom on the ground floor.
Relaxation after hiking in Piedmont
For getting the most from the natural beauty of the Piedmont region, the lakes, in particular Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta, are easily reachable from the country house hotel La Granica. After having explored the hills of Monferrato, there are also the hills of the Langhe and Roero to venture into. When you are tired of sightseeing relax in the garden or by the outdoor swimming pool of this boutique hotel.
