Ccca d'Rot was a home from home for us. A perfect base to explore the little mountain villages. Mario and Marissa were our hosts and were very kind and courteous. They even made a huge effort to give us a breakfast that we preferred, even though they didnt usually offer it. The room was charming, clean and lovely. Very comfortable. The tiny local cafe was great for a post walking/exploring day, and there is an ATM right there. Mario and Marissa arranged for us to go to a local farm for truffle hunting, a marvelllous lunch and wine tasting. We would recommend to anyone, anytime. Thank you again Marissa and MArio.

We stayed two nights in this B and B and could not of been more delighted. We were not treated like guests but like family. The Piedmont area is beautiful and our gracious hosts planned our wine route and great dining experience for us. A wine tasting tour was included and the food at mario's sister's restaurant was outstanding.we were also given a ride home after dinner. This family truly loves what they do and will accommodate your needs. I only wish we could of stayed longer but now that I know of these charming people and their B and B we will definately be back soon.

Had a wonderful time at Ca d' Rot. Marisa and Mario were lovely hosts. They love the region in which they live and have extensive knowledge about many different experiences in the surrounding area. Marisa set up a truffle hunt as well as a tour of the caves in Canelli. We stayed 4 days, but it still wasn't long enough. Will need to come back. True hospitality!
Ciao Sara and Garth Thank you for your lovely review. Baci Baci

Chi si dedica a scoprire le meraviglie d'Italia, se si trova a passare per il Monferrato ha la possibilità di trovare fuse tante bellezze diverse, quella del paesaggio, la bontà dei cibi e di vini famosi, la ricchezza di storia, personaggi, memorie. Ma anche l'impagabile ospitalità delle persone. Ci è capitato durante una breve vacanza nel maggio scorso sulle colline tra Alba e Asti. C'era una volta e c'è ancora chi ti accoglie con gesti e parole di ospitalità che sa di antico. Marisa e Mario, nella loro Cadrot di Vinchio ci hanno offerto la possibilità di conoscere accompagnandoci personalmente la bella regione , in un tour di scoperte: l'università del gusto di Pollenzo, borghi a cui non si arriva con le guide turistiche, una festa paesana inattesa. Ci hanno preparato una cena memorabile. Infine ci hanno portato in una cantina vicina con ottimi vini per qualità e prezzo. E' stata una piccola grande vacanza .Per chi voglia conoscere questa parte d'Italia,il soggiorno a Cadrot è opportuno per tanti altri motivi: Per l'alloggio, la tranquillità del luogo, le passeggiate tra le colline, la vicinanza ai luoghi celebri ( Alba Asti Barolo, Grinzane Cavour..). Si possono seguire i sentieri del partigiano Johnny Di Fenoglio, vedere la casa dello scrittore Davide Laiolo, che è confinante con il B & B. Sono piaceri da assaporare con calma, lasciandosi trasportare e dimenticando l'orologio. Si rischia di fare indigestione di cose buone. Ci sono stato in primavera: bello. Ma in autunno non deve essere da meno. Perciò ci torneremo per approfondimenti. Finchè ci sono persone come Marisa e Mario, le vacanze non sono solo vacanze. Gianni da Vicenza

En octobre 2013 escapade de 3 jours chez Mario et Marisa ,un réel enchantement .Même si temps était couvert à cette période de l'année ,l'accueil de nos hôtes fut un magnifique rayon de soleil .Très belle maison d'hôtes dans un petit village au charme certain et qui mérite de s'y arrêter .Quant aux propriétaires ils sont SUPER de gentillesse ,nous y retournerons .

We enjoyed a three night stay at Ca d'Rot in late September. This was our first visit to the Piemonte region and we were delighted by the area. Marisa and Mario were excellent hosts - very welcoming and attentive. They made reservations for us at local restaurants and were available for suggestions for things to see in the area. Vinchio is a charming village and Ca D'Rot offered a comfortable home for us.
4.2 on October 10, 2013
We had a lovely week at Ca d'Rot in september 2013. We really felt 'at home' in Ca d'Rot, our hosts treated us like family. All the places Marisa and Mario told us to visit (including good restaurants) were really good - better than the few times we didn't ask them and found our own way! Spacious room with good and large bed. Marvellous region with wine-wine-wine everywhere plus beautiful castles, churches and villages wherever you looked. Our stay ended a little sad, because I broke my knee-cap - but Marisa was so kind to accompany us to the hospital - which was really a great help because hardly anyone spoke anything more than Italian! We'd like to come back another year in october, to be able to go for a 'truffle-hunt' with Mario! But the colours in september were marvellous - so we enjoyed this month too ;-)).

Tout y est, et donne l'envie de vite revenir retrouver la gentillesse et l'accueil de Marisa et Mario, leur maison, leur village, leur région pour laquelle ils conseillent, orientent, suggèrent itinéraires et visites. Tout y est, y compris les meilleures adresses, avec mention exceptionnelle pour le restaurant Piazza Crova 3 à Vaglio Serra, village voisin. (Notre appréciation ne concerne pas le diner, qui n'est pas servi, mais le petit déjeuner )

My husband and I loved the B&B!!! The room we had was really spacious and we had an amazing view! This B&B is located in such a peaceful and gorgeous area. Marisa and Mario were truly amazing hosts, they made us feel like we were their friends. They provided us with numerous ideas for places to go and even drove us to a couple of places themselves. We had a really good time! Grazie Marisa, Mario and Federica! Hopefully, we will be able to come back one day:)

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour au mois d'août 2012. L'accueil des hôtes est vraiment très chaleureux. On se sent tout de suite vraiment comme en famille. Les petits déjeuners sont très bien fournis, notamment avec des produits locaux (la note ne concerne que le petit déjeuner). Il n'est pas possible de dîner sur place mais nos hôtes nous ont toujours guidé vers de très bonnes adresses de restaurants de la région. Chaque dîner a été très agréable. Nous gardons également un excellent souvenir de la soirée de dégustation de vin chez Luigi, un vigneron de la région. Merci encore une fois pour l'accueil et les différents conseils pour découvrir la région.

This B&B is situated in a lovely surrounding close to many brilliant restaurants and vineyards. The hospitality and service are unique. It is not a luxury place but your stay will be comfortable and personal.

Marisa and Mario are very pleasant hostpeople and offer beautiful and lovely equipped rooms in the heart of Piedmont. The breakfast was very delicius with fresh fruits and homemade jam. The hosts are very helpful in arranging contacts, have a lot of ideas for trips and sightseeing and last but not least a friend and winemaker named Luigi Castino. A hot tip if you look for honest and fine Barbera and Grignolino. We really recommend these location. Ralf & Elke

Si l'on devait résumer en un seul mot des vacances passées au Bed and Breakfast Ca d'Rot ? CHALEUR ! Mais attention, ne nous méprenons pas, on ne parle pas de la température ou du moins, pas seulement... Cette région tranquille présente de très jolies collines ("carine" comme on dirait en italien) et aux couleurs chaudes, ainsi que des vignes à perte de vue. Des petits villages sont parsemés ici et là dans lesquels on rencontre des personnes très chaleureuses et qui viennent - avec une spontanéité assez rare de nos jours - vous adresser quelques mots sympathiques. Le Bed and Break Fast se situe dans un petit village accueillant et calme. Petit jardin fleuri entourés de murs oranges qui vous apportent gaieté à coup sûr et où l'on peut s'y détendre en lisant un bon livre ou y bavarder tout simplement. Les chambres sont également très chouettes et toujours très propres. Petit déjeuner abondant où chacun y trouvera son petit bonheur matinal. Mais au Bed and Break Fast Cad d'Rot, il ne s'agit pas seulement de manger, boire et dormir. Il s'agit également d'une expérience humaine. Car lorsque vous rentrez d'une excursion ou bien que vous vous levez le matin pour aller déjeuner, vous y trouverez toujours quelqu'un pour vous accueillir, vous demander comment vous allez, si vous avez besoin de quelque chose, de converser et d'en apprendre énormément sur la région ! Voilà pourquoi le mot " CHALEUR " ne s'applique pas seulement au temps mais également et surtout au Ca d' Rot et ses propriétaires exceptionnels !
Grazie Rachele per le tue bellissime parole. Ti siamo molto affezionati

It is an excellent B & B in a splendid environment. The family Ratti was very hospitable and gave us a good explanation of the tourist activities in Piemonte.

The experience we had at Ca d Rot was exceptional. Their home was warm and in a great area close to many places in the Asti area. But their hospitality was the most significant part of the stay. They included us in their family events, local winery tours and visits. Experiences that you always hope for. I hope to be able to go their often!
5 on August 02, 2012
We have travelled to many places in the world but have now become frequent visitors in Vinchio, and at Cadrot, thanks to family Ratti. Piemonte, and especially the places in and near Vinchio are amazing - but the most amazing thing is this family that is so warm, helpful and professional. I can really recommend Cadrot to everyone that likes clean, nice, cool (perfect in summer-time) rooms and amazing service. One more thing - I am from Sweden and when a Swede uses superlatives when describing something, it sure is good. :-)

A special thank you to Mario and Mariza for their extremely kind welcome to Ca d'Rot. We had a wonderful 4 days and had all the advise and guidence we needed from our hosts for such an enjoyable stay from finding the best resturants, vineyards and places to visit. We will certainly be going back later in the year!

We stayed at Ca D'Rot in September 2011 only for a short 3 day break while we were on business. Marisa and Mario did everything to make us feel at home - we even ate breakfast in their own kitchen! They offered to book restaurants, gave us advice on where to go to visit wine cellars, pretty villages etc etc. We would also like to thank them and Gino for helping us with our car troubles on our way to the airport !

Il soggiorno presso questo bed and breakfast è molto piacevole, in quel paesino tipico del Piemonte dove si possono ammirare vasti paesaggi e vigneti. Le camere sono ben curate. La colazione è molto abbondante e offre una varia scelta, partendo dalla classica brioches e caffè, fino ad arrivare alla tipica colazione americana, con prosciutto, formaggio, salame, ecc. Le persone che gestiscono questa attività sono molto professionali e, importante a mio parere, solari. Non solo hanno cura dei propri clienti riguardo la pulizia delle camere o della colazione stessa, ma si rendono sempre disponibili sia per consigli sui vari itinerari o luoghi da visitare o dove poter assaggiare piatti tipici del luogo, sia per scambiarsi opinioni o semplicemente chiacchierare,... E' come sentirsi a casa!

Pasamos cinco días de nuestras vacaciones en el Piemonte en Ca d’Rot, Vinchio, un lugar muy tranquilo y acogedor. La familia de la casa Marisa, Mario i Federica fueron unos anfitriones maravillosos, amables y predispuestos a hacernos pasar una vacaciones inolvidables. Nos informaron de los lugares ineludibles de visitar, pueblos bellísimos con aires medievales en lo alto de las colinas rodeados de viñedos, también de la restauración fantástica de la región. Coincidimos con las fiestas d’Asti, nos facilitaron el acceso al espectáculo del Palio. También nos organizaron una degustación de vinos de la región con comida típica del lugar pasando una velada muy agradable Fueron unos días muy intensos, pero bien organizados, recorriendo esta zona del Piemonte, si repetimos, no dudaremos en volver a Ca d’Rot. Gracias por todo familia Ratti Albert & Antònia

My partner and I spent seven nights at Ca d'rot and had a wonderful time. It was a perfect location to explore the surrounding countryside and beyond. The Ca d'rot family could not have been more accommodating and gracious. Marisa and Frederica gave us great ideas for what to do/see and allowed us use of the kitchen. They made sure that we were comfortable throughout our stay. Marisa even made a reservation for us at a local vineyard (Castino Luigi) for a pleasant wine and dinner experience with the owner, Luigi. The room and bed were perfect for us. It is a mostly quiet location except for the occasional barking dog and speeding car through the main road. I would recommend staying here for anyone who wants to escape the bustle of tourist centers and enjoys a relaxed pace. We would definitely stay here again.

Un grand merci à Marisa et Mario pour leur accueil et leur hospitalité. Nous avons séjourné 2 jours et 3 nuits dans l'une de leur conviviale chambre d'hôtes. Nous avons été judicieusement conseillé dans le choix de nos balades dans cette région magnifique qu'est le Piémont. De plus, suite à un incident de parcours durant le trajet pour nous rendre à Cad'Rot, Marisa et Mario n'ont pas été avares de leurs conseils et aides, jusqu'à nous prêter leur véhicule personnel. Vraiment Top ! En un mot, c'est un lieu que nous recommandons sans problème, idéalement situé pour visiter le Piémont et son incroyable vignoble. Pierre et Elisabeth

Je recommande très vivement cette chambre d’hôte au cœur d’un charmant village typique du piémont. L’accueil à Ca’de rot est si sympathique et chaleureux qu’on se sent chez soi. Marisa est calme, accueillante et disponible. Nous avons été pris en charge avec beaucoup de chaleur humaine, comme si nous avions été des amis de la famille. Les logements proposés sont spacieux, très propres et conviviaux, chacun avec sa salle de bain particulière. Le petit déjeuner est très copieux, et délicieux. Nous n’avons pas eu le temps de visiter, et c’est mon seul regret, car j’aurais aimé me poser un peu plus pour goûter ce lieu… surtout lorsqu’on a vu depuis la frontière les magnifiques paysages du Piémont, et qu’on sait que cette famille attentive est toute disposée à nous guider et nous conseiller. J’espère pouvoir revenir…

We stayed for a week in Vinchio, a little place in Piemonte. The welcome in Ca d' Rot was great. The familie Ratti gave us tips of were we could eat, were we could taste wine, and the places of intrest in Piemonte. The room (with bathroom) was spacious and clean. The breakfast was very good. We will go back certainly !

. . . but then with nice weather, better food, good wine and in Italy !!! We stayes in Ca d'Rot 2 times in one holiday. After one day it felt as if we had been living here for months. The owners did everything to make us feel at home. They advised us on restaurants and wine tasting at the winery of their friends. Especially the wine tasting was not tasting wine but a wine experience. Ca d'Rot is a place to come back!

Centrally located to the Piemonte wonders of Alba, Asti, Canelli and the vine draped hillsides, the real value of this treasure is the way Marisa, Mario and Federica make one feel embraced in their home as if it was your own.

Me and my girlfriend stayed 1 night in October at Mario & Marisa' B&B in Vinchio. We found them on Google and we could not have wished for better. First, Mario & Marisa were super nice and they always made sure we were not missing anything. Second, they know the region very well and recommended us really nice places to visit. They even drove us to the vineyard of one of their friend where we had an amazing afternoon tasting wine. One night was too short and we hope to be able to go back for a longer stay in the future. Thanks again Mario & Marisa, it was fun meeting you and your beautiful region. -- Dominic and Rosiane.

Perhaps the best thing about this wonderful place was the personal service and friendship extended by its owners. Lovely quiet little village set in beautiful vineyard region, good food, and a highlight was the wine tasting and meal with local friends of the owners, complete with truffle hunt. We intend to go back!

We´ve been at the "Ca d´Rot" in august 2010. The Ratti family - Mario, Marisa and Federica - were wonderful hosts! On our journeys in Italy and France we met a lot of charming people, but the Rattis were really the nicest. Their House is lovely and clean, the breakfast was delightful. Moreover they talked englisch (especially Mario) and french (Marisa) with us, what was great, because we do only speak a little italian.
Ciao Pamela and Christian Thank you so much guys for your wonderful review. We are happy to have met you. It is really nice to read what you wrote about our territory and us. This review will help us a lot for growing and improving even more! Arrivederci. See you!

Fantastic family to stay with, very kind and helpfull. Great room and bathroom and a perfect breakfast. Marise and Mario are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much. Which host will travel nearly 100 kilomters to see a exhibition where the guest shows his collection? We had a fantastic time at Marise and Mario's Ca d'Rot! Danny and Yvonne The Netherlands
Dear Yvonne and Danny, thank you very much for your beautiful review. We like arts in general, so it was a really nice day spent together and we have approached now also the art of collection. We hope a lot to see you again one day! Take care,ciao Marisa and Mario

What a wonderfull familiy the Ratti are! Both of them speak English which in Italy is pretty rare, even for B&B's. We had a very warm welcome from them both. Once we asked them about local vinyards and tasting wine, the husband took us up hill to a friend of his, a local farmer. There we had our tasting of wine on the beatifull hills of Asti. This is one experience we will never forget! And thanks to the family Ratti we had this experience. The next morning we drove through the region and went by a bigger winetasting house and it definately didn't have the charm of the tasting of the wine before. It's a shame the farmers can't be found while driving around the region. Later that evening, the owners pointed us to the fact that in asti there would be a winefestival that evening, great! The room was really nice and clean, breakfast was wonderfull and abundant! Everybody who's ever been in italy knows that italy and breakfast don't go together but here, yoghurt, ceral, bread, croissants, cookies, cheese, meat, jam etc. The wife is nice and chatterly and keeps appoligising for her poor english, nonsense, you can understand every word of it. I only wish I could speak italian that well. Honestly, if your looking for a nice, warm and familylike B&B in the region of asti, look no further! The only downpart is, that their home is a bit hard to find, our gps couldn't find them, but once we asked for the family ratti in the village, we got pointed towards them.

There are too many good thing to say about our stay at Ca d' Rot. The family is absolutely amazing and went out of their way to ensure we had an enjoyable stay and unforgettable experience. This is by far one of my best travel experiences thanks to Federica, Mario and Marisa. I know we will be back to see them again. Should you have the opportunity to stay here, take it. Vinchio and the surrounding area offers a very unique Italian experience full of wine and great food. This is definitely recommended to all of those thinking to stay here and visit Piedmonte.
4.6 on June 22, 2010
Ca'D'Rot run by Mario and Marisa is one of the best B&B experiences me and my partner have had while travelling through Europe. This experience is created by the hosts, who are warm, fun and extremely nice. Both Mario and Marisa are very passionate about their local culture, wine and food and if you are an inquisitive traveler they will give you some of the best reccomendations! Definitely ask them for a wine tour and they will suggest either a tour with a family or a cooperative- Pick the tour with the family! Me and my partner travelling through Piedmonte region were looking for great wine and some authentic experiences. The hosts took us to the wine tour with a family, the vineyard produces mostly Barbera wine and also delicious Grigniolino- which was a truly memorable night. I highly recommend this B&B for it's charming location on a little village on the hill surrounded by vineyards, for it's wonderfully warm hosts who will go out of their way to make this experience one to remember! Worth every Euro we paid, but somethings cannot be quantified in monetary terms and that is the lovely time we spent with Mario and Marisa. My partner and I will definitely go back next year in October/Novermber to partake in the truffle season in Piemonte...and any guesses where we will stay? That's right! Ca'D'Rot! Many Hugs to Mario and Marisa from Dee and Keith

We stayed in this B&B for 3 nights during a visit to Piemonte in Italy in May 2010.

We loved our stay there and would certainly recommend this place for future references.

Beh, non ci son parole..la famiglia Ratti è riuscita a trasformare il loro B&B in "casa tua".

My wife and I were looking to relax for our last four days in Italy and we found the perfect place to do that at the Ca d' Rot B & B. The room we stayed in was charming and the breakfasts were tasty and ample. My wife was especially interested in white truffles as well as the other local food and wines of the region and the this B & B is perfectly situated for that purpose. Marisa was able to take us to a personal wine tasting with one of the local grower/vintners, who also hunts for white truffles with his dog, Linda. What a treat to be able to go out after dinner and hunt for the delicacy!!We were able to visit both Asti and Alba as well as walking in the beautiful countryside right there in Vinchio. There are also excellent restaurants nearby. All in all, it was the end to a vacation to remember, thanks to the fine folks at the Ca 'd Rot! Bob and Jay, Gaston, Oregon, USA

We stayed with Mario and Marisa late August 2009. This was a highlight of 3 week trip. We visited a special local winery with other guests and the B & B hosts. We also attended the local wine festival with them the next night. What a great banquet and experience along with other guests and of course Mario and Marisa, their daugher and son, and their friends and family. I would not miss staying here - you will make some great friends who really go the extra km for true hospitality. We were sad to leave and modeled a recent gourmet for our club of 30 years from this experience. The maps and directions for others towns and sights in the region were also wonderful. John W. I just need to add the warmth and hospitality of the host and hostess is a rare find when you travel. If you stay at this B & B you will not be disappointed. Carla W.

we have stayed in b&b all over the world, and never have we met such warm and helpful hosts. Marisa and Mario went out of their way to help us plan the nest leg of our trip. reccommended things to do, reserved dinner for us, and accompanied us to a momorable evening of wine tasting and dinner by their friends Luigi and Larisa (where we tasted the famous white tartuffi for the first time!). We were sad to say good-bye and hope very much to stay with them again
Thank you so much for your review! We have been very well with you and will be glad to host you again in the future for giving you the chance to have new experiences! ciao,ciao Marisa,Mario,Federica and Maro

This is a jewel of a B & B just waiting to be discovered. The Ratti family were outstanding hosts and went out of their way to make our stay in the Asti memorable and convenient. They arranged for a private tour of a vineyard complete with tastings, and to attend a local wine festival dinner which was beyond fantastic. Their B&B was charming, the rooms were comfortable and very clean, the breakfast and other snacks were very good, and they even did some laundry for us! The hosts, Marisa and Mario, weren't just innkeepers, but became our friends. This B & B is in a quiet little town right in the beautiful Piedmont area and is a must stay for people who enjoy wine. We can't recommend this B&B enough, and it is an exceptional value too. Give it a try!

Un posto tranquillo tra splendide colline dove abbiamo trovato una struttura particolarmente accogliente, ma soprattutto una grande ospitalità ed alla fine ci siamo praticamente trovati tra amici che ci hanno fatto apprezzare ancora di più il luogo i suoi sapori e la purtroppo breve vacanza
Grazie per quanto avete scritto! Anche noi siamo stati bene ed alla fine trionfa l'amicizia!

Our stay at Ca'drot was very nice. We were there for 7 days and the hosts are very nice people, very freindly and most helpful. they made many very good recommandations and suggestions for good restaurants, places to see and people to meet. they know thier region very well and everybody knows them, so you are always elcomed where ever you go. If you are looking for a quiet place, in a nice small village right in the middle of the most beautyful wine country in the world, Ca'drot is the palce to stay. You will be 20-30 minutes away from everything there is to see in the Asti/Alba region. The breakfast is very good. lots of homemade dishes and excellent care every morning. The in Keepers will help you plan your daily visit and they will event take you places if you which. I recommand Ca'drot to all my freinds and I am already making plans to go back some day!

A fantastic B&B in the middle of the vineyards of Piëmonte. Next to the beautiful region and its pure and tasty products the people are amazing. Staying in Ca d'Rot is like entering a family. You can enjoy, after a good night of sleep, a fantastic large and healthy breakfast. Afterwards you'll enjoy the sun on the patio and the guidance from the family Ratti to visit the most secret and beautiful places of the region. This very warm family tends to be as good as the wines you'll find among them.

We felt as if we were visiting with long-time friends in their home. Very comfortable room and bath...I would definitely stay at Ca d'Rot / House Ratti again. John and Lois

Members of my family and I took a self guided tour of Italy starting in the Tuscany region and making our way north to visit our Italian relatives near Domodossola. We were fortune enough to stay at Ca' d'Rot B&B for a few days while in the wine region of Peidmont. It is a charming home located in the small community of Vinchio within the Asti region. It is very clean, well maintained, and comfortable with beautiful views of the countryside. Our hosts Marisa, Mario, and Federica were absolutely amazing. They helped plan our daily excursions, took us to markets we would not otherwise have found, and even had wine and cheese ready upon our arrival which we enjoyed on the front patio. They also arranged for a private wine tasting and meal at one of the small local wineries which was fabulous. I should also mention the pleasant breakfast each morning. I would highly recommend this B&B and look forward to returning in the near future.
