It is a romantic journey through the Langhe and the Roero in which the Madernassa Resort lies. We are, precisely, at Guarene, a small town of fewer than 3,500 souls, which rises on the left bank of the Tanaro, one of the most important Italian rivers (the sixth longest). We are just beneath the 18th century castle designed by architect Filippo Juvarra, a few steps from the centre of the town where the Palazzo of the Rebaudengo King stands, home to exhibitions and important artistic events, and the Chiesa della SS Annunziata, built between 1699 and 1738 on the design of the architect Francesco Rachis Count of Carpeneto . As of the 22nd June 2014, on the occasion of the 38th session of the UNESCO committee in Doha, the Roero, together with the Langhe and the Monferrato became part of the list of World Heritage Sites. An area whose excellence is formally recognised, nestling among the hills, ancient villages, vineyards and some of the most highly acclaimed gastronomic traditions in the Italian peninsula. It is no coincidence that the Province of Cuneo, together with that of Naples is one of those with the highest number of Michelin stars awarded by the French guide and some of the best varieties of wines in the world.
