Welcome to Locanda La Raia. Enjoy the wide space in this old post house surrounded by the Gavi nature, its relaxed pace, a discreet service and unexpected details.
Italian style hospitality, slow pace in harmony with nature
Locanda La Raia is located in the Gavi region, in Southern Piedmont, and is surrounded by the vineyards, pastures and woods of biodynamic farm La Raia, owned by the Rossi Cairo family. 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 Locanda La Raia 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.
Welcome to the big green house in Gavi. Italian style hospitality, slow pace in harmony with nature.
