The Holiday House "Rocche di Montexelo" is located in one of the oldest villages of Roero, dominated by the superb castle of Monticello.
Four beautiful rooms equipped with every comfort will be the starting point and destination for each excursion.
You can restore your body and mind in the Wellness Room, or relax on the panoramic terrace overlooking the castle.
The surrounding area is a maze of hills, partly still wild, shaped by nature in an extraordinary way. They are the famous Rocche del Roero, characterized by deep gorges and picturesque ravines that, millions of years ago, were below sea level.
The Roero is still rich in marine fossils, such as fish, plants and shells: small treasures that anyone can find during a walk on the many paths.
The moments of stop of the excursions will be enlivened by the excellent wines and the typical dishes of the Langhe and Roero cuisine, famous all over the world.
The hospitality offered by our Holiday Home consists of four comfortable rooms, each one distinct with a name that recalls some peculiarities of the Rocche del Roero:
Golden Sands, Salt Crystals, Water Mirrors, Moon Shells.
The colors and furnishings of each apartment have been designed to evoke a significant aspect of the area.
