Locanda in the Heart of Gavi
The Locanda is located in the Gavi region, in Southern Piedmont, and is surrounded by the vineyards, pastures and woods of its biodynamic farm. This large green house used to be a mail station in the past, and is currently a boutique hotel with twelve rooms, each one different to the others, furnished with 1600 and 1800’s Piedmont pieces matched with contemporary design furniture, rich in organic colours, fabrics and materials.
The renovation of the property and its expansive grounds by firm deamicisarchitetti has created a continuous dialogue between inside and outside. The house’s original structure, with its arches, vaults and large windows overlooking the vineyards was saved and embellished, including a wide space for the light coming from the hills.
The Locanda is one with the landscape around: the gardens, fields and vineyards in the Gavi hills.
At the entrance, the garden that welcomes guests is a new interpretation of a typical Italian garden: a choice of aromatic herbs shaped like a big leaf. The largest garden, that joins the vineyards and becomes one with them, is composed of just indigenous species linked to the farming world; it was created by the French team Coloco, pupils and collaborators to garden designer Gilles Clément.
All rooms, suites and apartments at the Hotel are different from one another and are furnished with pieces that reflect the taste of the property. The seventeenth-century Piedmont wardrobe, the antique desks, the chest of drawers that date back to the nineteenth-century are paired with pieces of contemporary design.
On the walls, antique family portraits hang next to contemporary artworks selected among the artists represented by the Milanese gallery Viasaterna.
Materials, colours and fabrics tell a story of Italian taste of simple beauty, and the resulting effect, achieved through the skilful combination of antique and modern, is a home-feeling of large, comfortable and sophisticated rooms.
Discovering the territory, tasting the Gavi tradition and relaxing in the vineyards: at the Locanda granting oneself time means experiencing moment of pure wellness enjoying the beautiful nature.
The indoor and heated outdoor swimming pools, the sauna, the Turkish bath and the fully equipped gym overlooking the hills allow our guests to dedicate themselves to relaxation and wellness.
