One unique guest house in a medieval tower mixing period antiques and design furniture.
A noble listed building - "Roero di Monteu" XIII century- in the old-town centre of Asti.
An architect who cherishes the rite of hospitality.

The space

Have you ever slept into a medieval tower? That's where my guests sleep: right into the tower. Many say it's a dream place: it's not ordinary, that's for sure!
The apartment can only host one couple or one couple with two kids at a time. The kids will sleep in the living room, where one or two beds can be substituted to the sofa.

Guest access

The guests have independent access to their apartment composed of: small terrace on the roofs, entrance, main bedroom in the tower, living room/second bedroom, brand new design kitchen and bathroom with a two meters long new shower.

Interaction with guests

I live in the same building as my guests. If I'm in Asti, I enjoy getting to know them personally and I'm always available to answer their questions/give suggestions.
Furthermore, my architectural office is only minutes away so I'm easy to reach while I'm at work.

Other things to note

Being a medieval palace under the tutelage of the Ministry of Fine Arts, we're not allowed to install an elevator. To reach the top floor (3rd floor) where the apartment with the tower is is, there's a wide and comfortable staircase.

Location is outstanding, right there in the center of Asti, wonderful restaurants and wine bars are just minutes away. The apartment/tower is absolutely unique and one of the most special places we have stayed at: It's quite obvious that Elisabetta is an architect as the place is beautifully decorated with a very special touch to it. Elisabetta has been a wonderful host - very easy to communicate with, very helpful. Her hospitality deserves a special recognition: Coffee, fresh fruit, drinks, etc. were there at our arrival, perfect!! Altogether a wonderful AirBnB experience.

Staying at Elisabetta's tower was truly a great experience. The place is incredible, full of history and in a very central location. We stayed during the palio weekend when the whole city is celebrating its medieval heritage, which made the experience even more interesting. I highly recommend staying here!

We had a wonderful stay in the tower. It's as impressive as it looks in the picture, and in the heart of Asti, so you stroll out into a square and are immediately surrounded by restaurants, cafes and shops. Elisabetta was very welcoming and responsive. Answered all questions before and during our stay very quickly. One warning: the driving/parking in the center of Asti is tight and a little confusing. If you're driving a mid-size or above car be warned, you need to be handy in the driver's seat.

Rotarius was unique as it was beautiful, we felt very privileged to have stayed there. We did not feel we had to tip toe around, but felt very much at home, and liked the freedom to come and go as we pleased (and not be tied to mealtimes). Elisabetta (a lovely lady) was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about Asti and the surrounding areas, and she recommended some great restaurants, she wanted to make sure we enjoyed ourselves, and made the most out of our visit. We hope to return one day ......

Elisabetta has done a *phenomenal* job with the restoration of this highly unusual space. Combined with her recommendations of places to eat, nightlife, and festivals (e.g. the surreal International Truffle Fair in Alba), it made my most recent trip to Italy a truly unique experience. I'm fortunate to be able to appreciate this space for its artistic value as much as the surrounding bustling under-30 nightlife. I'd easily stay a few days and make this a hub for activities in Asti and the surrounding wine country.

What a nice stay and what a lovely place in this medieval tower perfectly restored by Elisabetta our italian host. If there was a time machine we will be the first passengers to travel to the middle ages and invite Elisabetta to have a wonderful candle-light dinner with us in her tower apartment. I will cook for her, like she did for us and i´am going to sharpen all her knives in order to prevent her from destroying her vegetablel!! We really did enjoy this vacation and we would like to come back as soon as possible, Or in our broken it alien A prossima volta, grazie mille!!! Dieter and Carmen

Elisabetta's Rotarius is spectacular - an incredible find - and in a charming area. I simply cannot recommend it highly enough; it was worth every euro! I spent an hour or two roaming, admiring her design sense and taking photos to help me remember the experience. Everything needed was provided, and her humor and hospitality were much appreciated. This place is perfect, particularly for a couple on a romantic holiday.
