Castello di Oviglio is situated halfway between Asti and Alessandria, bordering two of the most beautiful areas of Piedmont: Monferrato and Langhe. Recently transformed in exclusive hotel and events venue, the castle dates back to the late 14th century, when it served as military outpost. As part of the Visconti of Milan's fief of Orviglio, the medieval stronghold was expanded in fortified hamlet. Many centuries later, in 1823, the castle became the property of her Royal Majesty Cristina of Savoy before passing to the Counts Calcamuggi, responsible for the radical restructuring of the property and, in particular, the addition of the impressive entrance and tower.
Despite the passage of time and the various alterations made to the edifice, Castello di Oviglio has conserved all its historic charm. The large halls, library, cellars, and covered walkway are decorated with the most sumptuous of furnishings, and adorned with frescoes and paintings dating back to the time when the castle served as noble residence. Guest accommodation is available in nine elegant suites, in which to find both old world charm and the comforts of a modern hotel.
Castello di Oviglio's restaurant is a unique venue where to savor the food and wine for which Piedmont is famous. Guests are presented with tasting menus and a gran carte featuring the very best of the region's cuisine. An excellent selection of wines from Piedmont and the other wine producing regions of Italy (and beyond), is housed in the Castles' ancient cellars, rooms which provide the perfect location for the Castello di Oviglio's sommelier-hosted wine tastings.
The grounds of the castle only add to the property's immense appeal. Like the Castle's reception halls and courtyard, the park provides a dream setting for glamorous weddings, high profile banquets and exclusive parties. Function rooms of various dimensions, fitted with state-of-the-art meeting room equipment make the Castle a much sought after location for top level business meetings, seminars and conferences for 10 to 220 people.
