Locanda La Raia, Gavi hills - Italy
The restoration of Locanda La Raia, once a post office for travelers, is also a landscape project aiming at recovering the exchange between the house interiors and the vineyards, the fields, and the surrounding green areas. The entrance garden is a bit unexpected gem that reinterprets the Italian garden in a new iconic way: a selection of herbs arranged in a large leaf shape. The green fades into the vineyards, where only native species with a link to the agricultural world have been selected.

The twelve elegant and comfortable rooms, all differently furnished, and the sophisticated living areas welcome guests with a combination of antique furniture and contemporary design elements, which reflect the owners' taste. The welcoming style of Locanda La Raia is made of exclusivity at a relaxed pace.
Here the day offers various experiences: you can have lunch at the restaurant with the menu signed by the starred chef Tommaso Arrigoni and savor the great dishes of the Ligurian and Piedmontese traditions. Take a dip in the heated swimming pool, both indoor and outdoor, overlooking the Gavi hills. Walk to the farm via an internal road and thus discover site-specific works created by international artists among the rows and vineyards. La Raia Foundation - art culture territory was born in 2013 precisely to promote a critical and new look at its environment through the work of artists, photographers, architects, and landscape architects.

A stay at Locanda La Raia, for leisure or work, leaves an unforgettable memory of hospitality, landscape, food, and wine. All elements of an elegantly Italian cultural heritage.
