We had a great time at the Locanda. It's 4 min drive from Moncalvo, via small roads. Easy to find with a GPS. We got a free upgrade from Romantik to Junior Suite (num 42) upon arrival. Large room, huge bathroom. Tasteful decoration. Very quiet with a double door separating the bedroom from the corridor. Very, friendly and polyglot staff. We had a light lunch on a terrasse. Absolutely delicious vitello tonato coupled with a great Spritz cocktail (not cheap, though). They will open a spa in September 2012. Combine a stay at the Locanda with a visit (or more) to delightful, cheap, friendly, tasty Corona Real restaurant in nearby Moncalvo (on the main square up the hill) for a memorable Piemontese experience!
