La Meridiana has been designed in 1976 by Luisa Berto de Segre and the name was chosen in honour of the nearby Castello del Carretto, known as “della Meridiana”. Doors opened to guests in 1978 and immediately joined the prestigious Relais & Chateaux chain. The house was tailor made built with massive use of local materials, under the local-Provence style influence with large arches and canopies, stone walls, antique tile roofs, warm and bright colours.
As family owned hotel, Family Segre invests yearly economical resources for renovations and technology improvement.
