Palas Cerequio
Ranked #2 of 21 La Morra B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 May 2014

We stayed at Palas Cerequio May 6-9, and it was outstanding.

Hosts Jayne and Roberto run what is a cross between luxury spa and B&B. We stayed in the modern room above the main area, which had a private hot tub, sauna room, and rain shower. Very relaxing. Plus, our windows were like sliding glass doors which opened up to a tremendous view of the Barolo - Cerequio Cru vineyard. In the distance we could even see the tops of snow capped mountains over the hills of Barolo. Just beautiful.

The complimentary breakfast was as good as I had in Italy, with fresh juices, great breads, eggs prepared perfectly, and a number of other items. My wife loved the coffee (I don't drink coffee) more than anywhere else we went in Italy.

Dinner wasn't far behind either. The chef there does a great job with all the local flavors of the moment, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Wife is a vegetarian, and she felt the food was great as well.

Then, of course, there's the Michele Chiarlo wine cellar and tasting run by Roberto (this is a Chiarlo establishment). Roberto is a star sommelier, which was pretty surprising to me. Not because he is one, but historically the ones I've met have a certain air about them. He doesn't have that at all, but when it comes to wine tasting, and knowledge, he's unbelievable. Such a great depth and knowledge of wine, and in particular, the Barolo area. To top it off, in the wine cellar they were having a Renoir exhibit as well, which was just great.

Everyone we met at this small establishment was very nice and friendly. I think there's somewhere between 9-11 rooms there, and it wasn't fully booked when we were there. Even if so, it wouldn't have made a difference. Place is great.

I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a B&B-type of environment, that also provides absolute privacy, some higher end amenities, but still maintains that cozy and comfortable feel.

Was perfect choice for our honeymoon.

Also of note, La Morra is so close you could walk if you wanted to, although not necessary. There are great restaurants there, and a local market where you can be some exceptional wines to bring back at a very fair price. The prices for wines at Palas Cerequio, as well as food, was more than reasonable.

The ONLY thing they may want to add to the place, if possible, would be an outdoor hot tub/jacuzzi near the pool, but it's possible that could be distracting to some of the other rooms.

Best place.

Room Tip: They have modern rooms that are unique, but also more classic style rooms which are probably more pl...

This is the only place to stay when visiting the wine region of Barolo & La Morra. The hotel is virtually brand newly modernised in an old wine farmhouse. Managers Roberto and Jane (English) are the perfect hosts and the hotel has a great gourmet quality restaurant as well. There are only 9 rooms and the cellar door sells this top quality wines produced here. Access is tricky, at the end of a long narrow road at the bottom of the hill amongst the vines. And for the perfect wine guide you must consider contacting Silvia's Wine Tasting tours. Silvia will access the best wineries for you and also assist in any information - she knows the area well.

Room Tip: select a room with a view!!!!

This was the most beautiful place that we stayed throughout our trip to Greece and Italy. The scenery is breathtaking, the accommodation fabulous and the wine, perfect. The hospitality at palas cerequio is bar none, davide was very helpful and anticipated all of our needs! The chef at the hotel is very talented and the pizza at the pizzeria in la morra was delicious. I feel blessed to have stayed here and hope to return one day!

The location of this restored old buildings (plus modern addition) is serene, amongst the vineyards. It was restores by a notable winery owner a few years ago. Every room is different. Ours was on the first floor so it had a great view, first over the roof of small chapel and a terrace over to the vineyards. The room was very comfortable and spacious. Our room and the one next door had a steam room which heated up in 20 minutes, but was not as boiling hot as I prefer. The hotel is run by a small staff, led by a resident Italian gentleman and his British wife. Breakfast is excellent with the normal Italian style of bread, meats, cheese, fruit, etc. Cooked items available to order. Under the old part of the hotel is an amazing beautiful cellar that stocks historic wines from the area (earliest I saw was 1947 Barolo), as well as a large tasting area and stocks of large and normal bottles of the owner's vineyards. Excellent Wi-Fi connection. My best memory is getting up at 05:30 and sitting on the terrace in the chilly morning, reading and looking over the vineyards as the sun rose. Magical. A great choice to just relax and unwind, or explore the local area. Tough to find without good directions!

Room Tip: The old part of the hotel, first floor, off the terrace.

Sometimes you get what you pay for, and our stay at Palas Cerequio was one of those times. The location is spectacular... right in the middle of the grape fields of Barolo (Cerequio). The staff are charming and as helpful as can be. The rooms are VERY comfortable and the service impeccable.

A few notes... Finding the hotel is not too hard, the road is signed. However, when you actually arrive at the hotel, it is not immediately clear where the reception is located. Just park anywhere and look around... you'll find someone. The walk to La Morra is UPhill, Barolo is DOWNhill and the walk might be a bit strenuous if you are not a walker. On the other hand, if you do like walking, the location is spectacular... you can walk through the fields for kilometers in any direction. There is an OUTSTANDING restaurant just 2km away, Massimo Camia - a real gem. And last, but not least, in spite of what is published on some web sites, they DO serve food (lunch & Dinner) on site. The dinner we had was delightful, well prepared and fairly priced.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

We stayed 5 nights during harvest. For Barolo wine enthusiasts like us, staying in the midst of the Cerequio vineyard - in the Cerequio suite! - was terrific. Our suite was quite large and well-appointed; the balcony afforded great views. The small staff is extraordinarily friendly and helpful...the best ever. La Morra village itself is a bit of a walk - up a steep hill - and taxis are difficult, so best to have a rental car.
The hotel has a small restaurant. Breakfast was great. The dinner menu is very limited, but the food is good and the wine list is very extensive and fairly priced. We ate there several evenings after exhausting days of multi-winery visits in the area. Underneath the hotel is a terrific modern wine trasting room...Roberto conducted a very informative tasting of the wines of Michele Chiarlo.
Weather was too cold to try the pool during our visit, but it looked nice. Wi-fi is free, although the reception was a little spotty in our room. Assure that you have good directions when driving here, as the road can be tricky to find the first time.

Room Tip: We were very happy with the "traditional" building, but other guests who were in the "...
