It was our pleasure to stay at Cascina La Romana for the first two weeks of June. We had been looking for reasonably priced accommodation within easy striking distance of the grand wine-growing regions of Barolo and Barbaresco – and Cascina La Romana turned out to be the perfect choice. This is a family-run agriturismo and owners Marisa and Claudio, with their charming children Andrea and Sonia, made us feel very welcome and at ease. The property is quiet and peaceful, surrounded by hazelnut groves and vineyards, yet it is conveniently within walking distance (or a two minute drive) of the town of Dogliani. Resident horse, donkey, goats and chickens, plus the house cat and dogs, provide a genuine rural atmosphere. Pleasant pastoral views across the rolling hills around Dogliani completed the idyllic scene.
The ground floor Giglio apartment in the separate guesthouse was ideal for our needs, not luxurious but clean, spacious and comfortable, with a well-appointed kitchen and bathroom (including a washing machine), and we soon felt quite at home. The separation of the guesthouse from the family home meant that we always had a sense of privacy, yet could easily engage with our hosts. We equally enjoyed the outside spaces, which included grassy areas, a picnic table and children’s play area, as well as access to all the animals – this agriturismo would obviously be a great place to bring kids. Free wi-fi access was much appreciated. Even more appreciated was the generosity of our hosts, who happily shared free-range eggs, pizza baked in their own wood-fired oven, and Claudio’s very good, home-made Dolcetto wine. The cherry trees lining the drive were also regularly raided!
We heartily recommend Cascina La Romana for the quality of accommodation and its location, its excellent value-for-money, and for the friendliness and charm of the owners.
