Cascina Luciani, 112/a, Frazione Annunziata 12064 La Morra (Cuneo)
Just a few km from Alba, at the foot of the Langhe region, the farmhouse is set in a beautiful landscape, surrounded by vines and immersed in peace and quiet. Giuseppe will introduce you to his fines wines and Velda will take you on a journey through this generous land.
The farm has a long history and can boast Pope Pius VII, who crowned the emperor Napoleon Bonaparte in 1803, among its visitors. At the end of the 18th century (1758), when he was still Don Luigi Barbara Chiaramonti and after a sojourn at Cascina Luciani, he had a lasting memory of these places: "Ah! La Morra! Fine sky and good wine!" In 1993, the old Luciani farmhouse was transformed into a splendid agriturismo in the heart of the Barolo wine region.
Ten suites (6 of which are apartments) are equipped with all the comforts, furnished in an antique style and each one different from the others. In addition to the large lounge, guests can enjoy 2 recreation areas with kitchen, a fitness room, a sauna and a swimming pool.
For the type and the particular furnishing of the suites, as well as for the activities proposed, the farm is ideal for a romantic stay.
Upon arrival, guests are taken to the beautiful eighteenth-century cellar where they can taste good wines during their stay.
A reserved parking area, a camping area, a porch, a terrace and a garden complete the offer of this agritourism.
Located in the hamlet of Annunziata in La Morra, just a few km from Alba and the main towns of the Langhe region, the farmhouse is an hour and a half from Milan, Genoa and Turin.
Here, the Barolo wine region offers a host of marvellous surprises: a regal wine, famous worldwide, castles that bear witness to an ancient history, and rolling hills covered with thick vineyards.
Whoever has been here before will know the friendliness and hospitality of the Langhe people, always willing to offer the very best of this flourishing, history-steeped area.
Inform the agriturismo of any animals at the time of booking.

La Cascina del Monastero is a magical place, a stone's throw from La Morra, Barolo, strategic for its tourist position, but at the same time isolated, a real oasis in which to relax. The beautiful architectural structure, carefully designed and at the same time respected in its historical design, is located at the base of the hill, surrounded by vineyards and a small lake that seems almost designed. The starry sky, the croaking of frogs, a swimming pool overlooking the countryside, are ideal for relaxing, disconnect from the world of everyday life, even just for a weekend. Velda is not only an available person, but also a customer-oriented and at the same time very discreet person. So that you feel pampered but in the right measure!
I recommend breakfast because it is a triumph of local flavours and delicacies, most of which are homemade!

Completely fantastic. The owners could not have been more accommodating - nothing was too much trouble.
The venue is fabulousl. The pool and facilities are wonderful. The vineyards are relaxing to walk in and the views are to die for.
The breakfasts are superb for foodies - loads of local produce, at least eight different local or regional cheeses, fantastic cold cuts, fresh fruit, etc. Brilliant for both adults and children.
The rooms are scrupulously clean, air conditioned, comfortable, and have good cooking facilities for those not wanting to eat out every day.
A note to wine lovers. This place is a serious producer of great traditional wines, and with a couple of modern twists here and there.
The wine tasting and the tours were run by Velda's and Beppe's son, Loris. He is a knowledgeable and passionate young winemaker. Get him talking about the property and the wine, and he is difficult to keep quiet (although so enthusiastic was I, it was hard not to feel that I had overstayed my welcome on a couple of occasions). The tastings are extremely interesting and generous. Different crus and vintages kept on coming out depending on my tastes. Remarkably, Loris remembered my favourite wines over the week, and honed in on some particular crus and vintages that he thought I would like. This is absolutely priceless for an interested wine drinker who wants to be educated in the local wine culture and terroir.
All of the wines are great, right from the more modest Barberas, through to the high-end Barolos. It was a genuine privilege to drink wine here and chat with someone so passionate about his wine and the local culture.
Really not looking forward to going home. I will return.
Visit this place. It's awesome!
We spent two night in the Cascina and enjoyed it a lot. The owner Velda was very friendly and helpful and prepared a great breakfast (with excellent raspberry cheesecake) despite that we were the only two guest at that moment. She also pointed out some great restaurants in the environment. The room was also very good and specious. Only minor issue was the pool area that could do with some refurbishing (less plastic). Pool itself though was great with very nice view on the surrounding wine fields. We also highly recommend the wine tasting by the son of the house we has a great passion for the wines.
Please to meet you, my name is Velda and I am 51 years old.
