New, modern and with a stunning view of the Alta Langa: That's our 2-room apartment, ready for our international guests. It was built in 2014 as a very bright and open-spaced apartment. Comfort is promised as there is a very well equipped kitchen, a balcony with a breathtaking view and a cosy oven for the colder wintertime.
The apartment is about 200m from the village centre that has two grocery stores, a restaurant and a bar, where tourists can chat easily with the locals.
The hosts David and Rita Maria are available to you and can recommend excursions, wine tastings and their own secret tips.
Hospitality at its finest.
Secret tip: Apericena at your host's table.
The Barolo area: UNESCO World Heritage site since 2014.
Alba (20mins): A sweet small city with a lot of culture, shops and various events throughout the year (like the truffle market in October)
Acqui Terme (25mins): The city of hot springs.
In our little resort you can take part in culinary and creative activities: use the well equipped kitchen, the pizza-oven, collect spices/herbs directly from our garden and we have an open atelier as well .
Our special offer for time-out stays (holidays with assistance services) can be discussed personally.
The apartment is located above a small piece of land where Aromatic herbs, Olives and Hazelnuts are produced (100% organic). Our two sheep Gina and Gianna make sure that the grass won't grow too much.
The effect the region has on visitors is like persistently taking deep, relieving breaths. The serenity of the gentle hills dotted with small buildings, the nearby little towns Alba and Acqui Terme, the spruced up hillside villages and the vineyards in the Roero and Barolo region invite for peace as well as hiking, biking and cultural experiences.
