Truly the Finest....

Renovating a castle with such exquisite care and detail while turning it into an outstanding hotel is a feat in itself! Castello di Guarene is truly a 5 star experience... from the long drive up to the castle, to being greeted by staff upon arrival and walking into the magnificent entry before check in we were already truly impressed. Staff were welcoming and dedicated, explaining the history of the castle and its history. We were escorted to our room after check in and were amazed at the size, detail and luxury. We definitely felt like royalty!

For us, it was easy to lose ourselves in the different outer rooms...all exquisitely decorated. The views across the hills were outstanding and the grounds and gardens a pleasure to walk in. Morning breakfast was delicious and served either on the terrace or in yet another beautifully detailed dining room. The small bar was cosy and inviting plus we enjoyed a game of billiards next door before dinner. Dinner is served on yet a different terrace and dining area of the hotel...it was impossible to think of eating elsewhere as we had no desire to leave the property! Staff were attentive and impressed us with their knowledge of a variety of local wines.

We had our small dog with us who was also well received and enjoyed the extras left in the room. Unfortunately, traveling with her made it impossible to enjoy the beautiful spa...next time, as it shouldn't be missed.

I'm already dreaming of a return visit...Castello di Guarene has become my new favourite travel destination in Europe!!

Best relais & chateaux villa in the region

We had such a wonderful times here,the hotel manager and reception staff are welcoming , we learned from the staff and appreciated the history and story behind the castle, we found the housekeeping team always keep our room tidy with plenty clean towels and glasses for our disposal as well as pay so much attention to every details. Having been stayed for a couple relais & chateaux for this trip in Piedmont ,we feel that Castello di Guarene is the best.
