nice secluded house

  • 5 of 5

Charming location with stunning views. The surroundings are also very enjoyable. More than adequate facilities and a lovely hostess. Long people need to be carefull with manoevring in the bathroom, since not everthing is laid out to the length of north european people, but one can overcome this little hurdle.

Beautiful, convenient, and well-located. The perfect based for exploring Piemonte

  • 5 of 5

It was a privilege to stay in this beautifully renovated house, ideally located for exploring Piemonte. The setting was perfect for us: rural enough to have a quiet break with breathtaking views of the valley, and yet close enough to drive to major destinations such as Alba, Asti, Turin, Barolo and Bra.

The house is one of the nicest places we’ve ever stayed. A medieval building immediately beside an ancient church, the house has been lovingly restored and decorated in modern, stylish taste. The kitchen was equipped with most things we needed, and we prepared meals at home most nights, using up the truffle we bought in Alba and the wines discovered on our journeys. Chiara made us feel most welcome on our arrival; the added touches of local wines and homemade apricot jam and cake made us feel instantly at home.

On the middle floor, there is a comfortable sitting room with television that we never used, preferring instead to spend our time upstairs or down. We ate our meals in the small garden – the weather was mild enough even in late October – however, the multitude of timer-activated garden lights meant that there was little chance of stargazing and there was little privacy due to the comings and goings of the neighbors living close by. Nevertheless, everyone was friendly enough and it did truly feel like we were living as the locals do. One of the previous guests wrote in the guestbook that they were taken out dancing by the family next door. Carpe diem!

The bedroom had a comfortable bed and wardrobe large enough for a week’s worth of clothes. The star attraction in that room was the balcony window, which we left wide open all night and from which we could watch the sun rise and set. We sat on the balcony every night with a glass of grappa, a blissful experience. The area seemed completely insect-free, so windows were left wide open when we were at home.

The bathroom was modern and clean and many complimentary provisions were supplied. Europeans will be delighted with the bidet. The glass ceiling that Marco created to separate the bathroom from the ancient timbered roof above was a marvel of design.

One real advantage to this place that wasn’t made clear in the write-up beforehand was the ideal parking very close to the house. The walk to the car was indeed short.

It was a lovely place to stay and a wonderful base for exploring things both near (the excellent pizzeria in town) and further afield. I’d definitely return.

Stylish house on a quit spot

  • 4 of 5

Well-equipped house on the edge of a hill overlooking the Piedmont vineyards. Clean and very nicely decorated house. Small garden with kind neighbours in a small quite hilltop village.

Quick and clear responses from the owners on questions asked. The garden table and chairs are a bit small for longer northern European visitors. But we had a great stay and would recommend it to others.

  • 4 of 5

In het hoogste gedeelte van Calamandrana vlak onder kasteel en kerk staatv een lieftallig huisje met alles wat je voor twee mensen nodig hebt om in het zuiden te verblijven. Comfort is ok, uitzicht eveneens en de lacatie is prima. In de omgeving valt er van alles te bezichtigen, dus toplocatie!!

Architektonisch wertvoll renoviertes Dorfhaus in kleinem historischen Ortsteil

  • 5 of 5

Sehr freundliche und aufmerksame Vermieter, herzliches Willkommen mit regionalen Köstlichkeiten und Weinen.

Geschmackvoll renoviertes Haus, auf 3 Ebenen für 2 Personen. Bezogenes Bett mit Leinenbettwäsche, Handtuchwechsel und persönlichem sehr aufmerksamen Service der Vermieter, die im nächsten Städchen wohnen. Kleiner Gartenanteil, mit kleiner Terasse, Tischchen, auf Tuchfühlung mit den Ital. Nachbarn, die nicht immer Rücksicht auf die Privatsphäre nehmen. Sehr schöne Aussicht vom Balkon im oberen Stockwerk, dort Schlafzimmer mit Bad+Wc, etwas viel Treppensteigen erforderlich. Man kann vom Haus aus kleine Spaziergänge in die schöne Umgebung machen und hat gute Ausflugs- und Einkaufs Möglichkeiten in kurzer Fahrdistanz. Ideal für einen aktiven Urlaub, um das wunderschöne Piemont zu entdecken.
