In the heart of the UNESCO territory of Roero, a medieval castle transformed into a noble residence in 1600, it is today a high-class hotel, where history joins modern comforts, a spa and a high-level cuisine.
Castello di Guarene History
For seven centuries the castle has dominated the Guarene hill.
In the Middle Ages it was a fort, in the eighteenth century it became the new summer residence of the Roero counts, personally designed and built by the best known of the family, the count Carlo Giacinto, a significant figure of the 18th century Piedmontese aristocrat. It is an imposing three-storey building, which reaches 25 meters in height, surrounded by vast and elegant Italian gardens built in the first half of the eighteenth century.
Inhabited for tens of generations by the Roero di Guarene, Vezza and Piobesi, an important family of the Piedmontese aristocracy, in 1899 it passed by inheritance to the Provana of Collegno. Its long history makes it an archive of memories and a museum of architecture, painting and decorative arts. Transferred to another property in 2011, it was destined for a new vocation that combines absolute respect for museum value with prestigious hospitality.
After three years of conservative restoration and adaptation, the castle is now a high-class hotel, with sumptuous rooms in ancient style, first-rate cuisine, great wines and modern comforts, all combined to give unique living experiences.
