In the mountains, about 2 hours from La Morra, you will find a beautiful hotel called Chandarfei. Elio (along with some friends) has restored a tiny village in Castelmagno (just like a few other wine producers from Piemonte) where you can spend the night, eat, drink and relax. PSA: the road up is dicey, so if you go you might want the number of Chiara, the wonderful woman who works there, and she can come and “rescue” you.
This beautiful hotel is one of the most relaxing places I have ever been. The air is so clean, the rooms are cozy, the food is really good, the nature is breathtaking and the people there are truly wonderful.
One of the most impressive things about this place is the wine list. Should come as no surprise since Elio is in charge. The wine list is better than most of the places I went to in Milan. I will most definitely go to Chandarfei instead of Milan. I hope to be back soon!
You can find Chandarfei on Trip Advisor or you can send me a message and I can put you in touch with Chiara! If you go, say hello to Fritella and Rambo for me! Fritella is the less than helpful herding dog and Rambo is the impressive looking goat!
