              Tips Eigenaar

              HOSPITALITY Staying in the charming apartments in the castle's inside, returned to the ancient brightness, means to revisit entire centuries of history or reinterpreting them with the original touch of the Masters of contemporary art and design. The guests can use the pool of a near private residence. On request, we suggest cooking, gardening and painting lessons. THE TERRITORY Rocca Grimalda is a town of Alto Monferrato, vast but with a little historical centre, perfectly preserved. Located half-way between the seaside and the mountains, it is known by everyone who loves good wine and natural trails. In fact, a traditional trail is the "Cammino di Santa Limbania", a path which connects Genoa to Low Piedmont. "Esultante di castella e vigne" (exultant with castles and vineyards): that is the perfect definition given by the Italian poet Giosuè Carducci of the territory in which Rocca Grimalda is located, the Monferrato. Its hills offer a great variety of landscapes, environments and farms; in the north, near the Pianura Padana, these are characterized by vast vineyards or dominated by a tower, a castle or a lonely chapel, while the hills that descend towards the South, near the Appennino Ligure, show harsher landscapes, and the vineyards give way to groves and woods. Also the terrain is varied, from place to place, from hill to hill: it changes its colour, its consistence, its chemical composition. The "Strada del Vino" (Wine Route) and the "Percorso dei Castelli" (Castles Route), signalled by the street signs, are an efficient guide to reach the destination. THE HISTORY Located in a point overlooking the vast Valle dell'Orba and much sought-after for its highly strategic position, the castle was disputed between the commune of Alessandria, the Republic of Genoa and the Marquisate of Monferrato during the Middle Age. Its constrtuction was developed during the centuries around the imposing circular tower that dates back to the early 13th century. The core of the first castle is made of a polygonal structure built around the tower and destined to host the guards who watched over Valle dell'Orba. In 1431, when the area was occupied by the troops of the Duke of Milano, Filippo Maria Visconti, the castle was assigned to Gian Galeazzo Trotti, who used to lead soldiers of fortune for the Duke. With the Trotti family of Alessandria, the building was transformed into an aristocratic residence and the town was named Rocca De' Trotti thereafter. In 1570, the stronghold was bought by Battista Grimaldi, a Genoese noble whose family held the property of the castle for over 200 years, completing its construction at the end of the XVIII century with the great western wall face and the building of the roof garden that overhangs Valle dell'Orba. The influential and long-lasting presence of the Grimaldi's family , changed the town's name again, making it become finally Rocca Grimalda. THE GARDEN The garden dates back to the mid 18th century when Battista Grimaldi III, after building the imposing western wall face, decided to enlarge the castle forecourt creating a beautiful panoramic viewpoint on the Valle dell'Orba. Recently restored and listed among the historical gardens of the Piedmont region, the garden has three different features: the Italian-style garden, the grove or romantic garden and the secret garden, or the cloistering-medieval space. The Italian-style garden is fine and harmonious: old stone sculptures and a spurting fountain alternate themselves on the lawn, enriched by boxwood cones, cut according to the rules of the Ars Topiaria. The grove or romantic garden offers relaxing moments of solitude in the hot season of the year. Thanks to the Lebanon cedars, the oaks and the cypresses, the place is surrounded by shade. The restoration of the garden mostly concerned the cloistering-medieval area, which was made as a tribute to the ancient origins of the castle.

              Wat een prachtige locatie! Wij hadden het bovenste appartement met een geweldig uitzicht op de bergen en de vergezichten van de steden. De trap op was elke dag wel even een klim, maar de dames van het kasteel hielpen gelijk bij aankomst met het sjouwen van de tassen. Ontzettend vriendelijk en behulpzaam. De tuin is prachtig, het hele kasteel is mooi. Het dorp is klein, maar prima om een ontbijtje te halen. Veel te doen in de omgeving. De accommodatie was luxe: twee badkamers en prima bedden! In het appartement stonden allerlei douche artikelen die we konden gebruiken en toiletpapier. De bedden waren opgemaakt en ruimschoots voorzien in handdoeken. Wij hebben hier echt een fijne week vakantie gevierd!

              What a fantastic location and what friendly hosts. Arriving after a long trip the hosts made sure we felt home quickly. The appartment was great but a little hard to reach reach using the tower's stairway. It made the location extra special but when they saw our struggle, with our special need daughter, they were quick to open their private quarters to made the entry easier. Overall a very nice apartment which made us feel very special. The town itself is smal with friendly people. It has a small shop, restaurants and a bakery. other interesting locations are within the vicinity Very much worth the visit.

              Door vertraging 's avonds pas om kwart over tien aangekomen. Eerste vraag van de beide dames die de zaak runnen hebben jullie wel gegeten? Na ons ontkennend antwoord werd onmiddellijk bij het naastgelegen, zojuist gesloten, restaurant nog wat brood, kaas en salade georganiseerd. Mochten we niet voor betalen. De accommodatie is prima, van alle gemakken voorzien en toch gemeubileerd in de trant van het oude kasteel. Van de omgeving hebben we vooral van de tuinen genoten daar heel veel gelezen omdat er moest worden uitgerust en onze eigenlijke vakantie nog volgde.
