Certificate of Excellence
La Foresteria occupies the second floor of the Castle of Counts Amico, an ancient home of '700, framed in the sweet hills of Monferrato, a UNESCO heritage site and a symbol of great food and wine from Piedmont. Completely restored a few years ago, offers its Guests rooms and suites elegantly furnished - with all the services of a 4 star hotel - as well as an elegant and refined lounge available for private and corporate events. Our sustainable business choice makes La Foresteria del Castello an hotel low environmental impact, and the products offered to our guests are biological and "0 km", coming exclusively from local farms, selected with care and attention to ensure its quality and authenticity. SPA-HIMALAYAN SALT (free access for Guests) Our Himalayan salt SPA includes salt cave, salt bath, relax area and tea, emotional shower with chrome and aromatherapy and salt sauna. The treatment - for all ages people, children and families - gives a relax to the muscles, thus helping the posture of our body to get rid of tension and stiffness. The reason of treatment is not to replace antibiotic treatments, medical spas, but to offer an innovative tool to help our body to find the right balance and give a moment of wellness and relax, in addition to helping healthy and aesthetic situations, such as breathing, dermatitis and psoriasis, blemishes and cellulite. Please note that the results of the studies described and scientific assessments show that only the Himalayan crystal can be considered the true salt, being the only complete and pure for its composition and antiquities. With a session of only 30 minutes in the salt cave, the body is able to absorb such a quantity of microelements that only a stay at sea for three days, in the period immediately following a storm, can guarantee. MASSAGES Relax and pamper yourself, away from everyday life, choosing our treatments for body and soul: in the unique atmosphere of La Foresteria del Castello you will find in a new and regenerating dimension.

I rarely give so bad recensions but in this case I had no option. In short it is an average 2/3* accommodation highly priced to 100euro/day stay. Positive-free parking, good himalaya spa free of charge, decent massage. Negative-to small room, no place for 2 suitcases ( evan one

Response from Marina M, Proprietario at La Foresteria del Castello Wellness & Spa
Responded 8 Jan 2016
Dear Guest, we're sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy your holiday, but we are even more sorry to read the negative comments and criticisms which in our opinion are undeserved. First, we want to specify that when you made your reservation through booking.com, you asked specifically for the room where you stayed, and you had the possibility to watch an entire photo gallery about that. In any case, if at your arrival you thought that the room you booked, was inadequate to your expectations, we would have no problem to change it, but during your five day stay we never had any request in this regard. We are always available to solve any problem or request, but it is absolutely counterproductive and very frustrating not to receive any kind of complaint from our guests and then, reading negative comments only after your stay, when clearly we can’t solve anything anymore. Also, the room you had, is equipped with a large four door wardrobe, as well as a large chest of drawers: it seems to us, that it is suitable for long stays like yours, because it can hold a lot of clothes and accessories. Our breakfast is one of our biggest prides, because it is very abundant and rich, both for sweet and savory: in 5 days you could taste different cakes every morning and a wide choice of products: so, we don’t think that your comment about breakfast and about the service in general, is honest. The linen is changed every two days, like in any other 4-star hotel, and we had no problem to change it every day on your request: the cleaning is done with great precision, but it is true that the hotel is located in the middle of nature, in the countryside, surrounded by many plants. About the payment, unfortunately not because of us, but because of a mistake made by booking.com, the Diners credit card appeared accepted by our hotel when it is not, but this error was later found and immediately placed: we must also say that your first credit card, that would be accepted without any problem, resulted expired, so we apologize you, but it is unfair, blame us about the problem with the payment. We are very sorry to read your last comment about the spirit of our hotel and of all the staff: our main goal is always the satisfaction and the happiness of the customer and for this reason, many of our guests come back other times to stay to our hotel’s. We send you our best regards, continuing to do our best in our work, with passion and professionalism, alway available to talk and to solve any kind of problem, if it’s faced together.

Stayed here for 2 nights during mid-week late September 2015 and found it well located for exploring the Barolo wine region, and good value for money (though I think it could be a bit pricey on weekends and peak season). A couple of excellent restaurants within walking and easy

I loved the location and the cleanliness. The buffet for breakfast was very rich, offering a very good variety of local products sych as "crostate" and different kinds of biscuits and fruit. Staff was excellent, kind and very professional. I highly recommend this hotel.

Stunning castle conversion although situated in front of a church whose bells strike every half an hour, all night. It is impossible to sleep unless you have fainted. Recommend asking about the bells situation or a serious discount before booking otherwise all you'll get will be

E' possibile visitare il castello ?
buonasera! Vorrei sapere se è prevista la dotazione di ciabatte e accappatoio per la Spa. Grazie!
Buon giorno, forniscono di tutto loro: telo, ciabattine e accappatoio. Noi avevamo chiesto anche una bottiglietta d'acqua fresca dopo la sauna e, ce l'hanno portata subito. Tutto lo staff è talmente gentile e premuroso che non mi mancherà nulla. Buona vacanza
