Maison du Roi is a superior holiday house in the old town of Serralunga d’Alba, the Langhe Hills village spread on a charming rise overlooked by a 14th century Gothic castle.
Maison du Roi has been recently restored and refurbished with valuable materials and finishes, as is suitable to a family home built at the end of the 19th century. The building used to belong to the Cappellanos, the family of Dr Giuseppe, the pharmacist who invented famous Barolo Chinato, namely, Barolo wine flavoured with cinchona or China bark. Indeed, the front central square in Serralunga was named after Mr Cappellano’s daughter Maria, when she died of Spanish flu (the influenza pandemic which raged worldwide from January 1918 to December 1920).
The privileged location of Maison du Roi will let you spend a most enjoyable holiday characterized by excellent food and fine wines, whose finest, Barolo, originates just in the vineyards in this hilly country. In fact, Serralunga d’Alba belongs to the area inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2014 as “Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont: Langhe-Roero and Monferrato” cultural site.
A few kilometers downhill is Alba, a quiet market town of 30,000 inhabitants, where you can enrich your holiday time in the shade of the medieval brickwork arcades and towers, after visiting the Roman ruins scattered along the underground routes in the old town.
Maison du Roi on the second floor is a two-tier one (60 square metres each) provided with a lift. This unit has two double bedrooms, a bathroom with shower and a small sitting room all in the sleeping area, while in the living area you can avail yourself of a large living room with TV, a kitchen, a small bathroom and a terrace with a panoramic view, a cushy spot for those who wish to enjoy the wonderful scenery of the surrounding hills from dawn to dusk just lying back on their deckchairs.
An innate sense of hospitality matched with a remarkable knack of efficiency will ensure you prompt access to the services available, such as transfers, wine and food tasting events, trekking tours, cycle rides, fitness sessions, etc.
Pets are warmly welcome.
A minimum stay of two nights is appreciated.
