THE HEART OF THE LANGHE
Roddi is located a few minutes from Alba, in the heart of the Langhe. Ancient medieval village located in a wonderful panoramic position on top of a hill overlooking the famous castle, is the starting point of a dense network of cycling and trekking routes. Ideal for a romantic weekend, a relaxing holiday or a culinary exploration of one of the richest Italian area of typical products.
Barolo, Barbaresco, Nebbiolo, Barbera are just some of the wines produced in this area and known and appreciated all over the world. Food fairs and events (such as the famous truffle fair, in October) are on the agenda, and it is possible to visit the producers’ cellars with tasting or follow cooking classes. Those who love shopping are just a few kilometres from places like Alba and Cherasco with their boutiques, typical markets and gourmet shops.
Roddi is also ideal for those who want to spend a romantic weekend. The gentle and sinuous landscapes with their millennial history create a natural setting for a love story, while it is not difficult to find delicious restaurants for an accomplice dinner, perhaps tasting the aphrodisiac truffle. For a gentleman who knows how romanced a woman, these places offer everything necessary to ignite the passion and make their partner happy. A very appreciated characteristic of the Langhe are the views and the glimpses: especially walking, you are surprised at every moment by a narrow alley, a vase of flowers, a carved door, the eyes escape along inlaid hills of a multi-coloured mosaic.
For those venturing into the countryside, the landscape suddenly populates itself with the dark green colour of the woods where the truffle grows. There is no lack of nature reserves and abandoned places for those who love peace and can finally seek contact with nature and silence. From our comfortable rooms you can enjoy a very wide view of the Langhe of Unesco, that portion of territory declared a World Heritage Site because of its peculiar landscape features and which includes highly evocative places in history and art, such as the Castle of Grinzane Cavour, where the famous statesman stayed, and the enchanting medieval village of La Morra, a famous world food and wine centre. If you are looking for a 360-degree experience of the Langhe, you have come to the right place.
