“Casa da Giò” was born during the lockdown period. The house is centrally located -the Duomo is only 30 mt away- and has a free reserved parking space in its large inner courtyard. In fact, neither the car nor public transport will be needed to discover the historic center with its architecture, squares, enoteche and restaurants that make the capital of the Langhe unique.

The train station and the bus stop are only 3 minutes away.


"Casa da Giò" has a large inner courtyard (its access is protected by a driveway gate) where a free parking space will be reserved for you during the period of your stay, so all you have to do is unload your luggage and get in. You will be in the heart of the city and you can forget using your car. For any need, a small but comfy supermarket is just 2 minutes walk from the house.


"Casa da Giò" is on the ground floor, with independent access. You will find it easily thanks to the logo on the front. It has a large living room, two bedrooms, a bathroom and a "real" and fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, induction cooktop, no-frost fridge and TV. The house can host up to 6 guests.


You will find large wardrobes in a modern space designed with the heart. You can also listen to good music thanks to the WiFi and the numerous USB sockets throughout the rooms. Each room is air conditioned (for those wishing to cool the place).

The Langhe and the Roero are among the most fascinating landscapes of Piedmont: hills, towns and ancient villages perched on the surrounding heights, vineyards and great gastronomic traditions.

For food and wine lovers this is certainly one of the areas of excellence, the ideal place to relax and enjoy nature, art and above all good wine and food.

This is a historical area of Piedmont bordering other historical parts of the region, namely the Monferrato and the Roero, and consisting of an extensive hill system defined by the course of the Tanaro, Belbo, Bormida di Millesimo and Bormida di Spigno rivers.

Since 2014 the landscapes of Langhe, Roero and Monferrato have become part of the Unesco World Heritage.

I am an architect and during the lockdown period I finally realized one of my desires: imagining and transforming the house for my traveling friends. You will be welcome and I will be able to customize your stay according to your needs. It will be a pleasure for me to meet you. Giorgio.



"Casa da Giò" is located in Via Macrino, a very central urban space adjacent to Piazza Publio Elvio Pertinace (former Roman emperor) and the true center of the city. You will be in the heart of the historic center.


In a few minutes, comfortably on foot, you will find yourself in Via Vittorio Emanuele, in the Piazza del Duomo or near the medieval church of San Domenico (often home to concerts).
