“Novello small hotel on a Piedmontese hilltop”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

We have been visiting the region of Piedmont in NW Italy since 1994 and never stayed in Novello. Fortunately we took the opportunity to try their spring weekend package in June which was a great value.
The hotel has a wonderful chef who can make Piedmontese specialties in a fresh way. The staff was friendly and attentive making the service great.
Novello has some wineries that are making news by bringing back traditional Piedmont grape varieties such as Nascetta,

we stayed there just for one night coming from cote d'azur to geneva.
the hostess was very friendly.
the restaurant small, but quite tasty food.
the room was a bit strange (in terms of the area:bedroom, toilet and afterwards,a small place for the kid's bed), but warm clean and showed some signs of the romance.
for the price we paid, i think it was quite a good choice.

Room Tip: our room was on the 1 floor, nice and simple, good for sleeping.

Barbabuc hotel is located in the traditional village of Novello, up on the hill above Barolo. From this small village with its castle, you may enjoy the picturesque views of the typical Piedmont landscape with its vineyards and the snow capped Alps in the background. Barbabuc is a little, nicely kept hotel, known for its culinary specialties. The food is delicious, it is the perfect place to taste the specialties of the Piedmont region, known for its delicacies such as the truffles, the wines, the cheeses, the meats and so on.

The restaurant offers a very diverse menu, and one of their top dishes is their Piedmontese mixed fry (in Piedmontese language "Fricassà Mescia") - this a dish of ancient popular tradition, especially in the autumn and winter. The staff is lovely and will make you feel at home and guide you through their menu and the food culture of the area.

In a really familiar atmoshere we have had twice dinner; perfect quality! Also the service was very good and the staff friendly.
Novello - with the famous castle - is a nice small village in the Langhe and this hotel is in the centre; amazing views!
