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.

We have stayed 2 weeks in this beautiful house and we loved every second .The milieu is unique, surroundings in the middle of the vineyards are unforgettable. Chiara is so lovely and gentle person who surprised us with amazing welcome. The house is well cared, clean and it represents history and modern times well-balanced. We can recommend this home sincerely ! Marja and Juha from Finland

A very special place

  • 5 of 5

This little house in Calamandrana Alta has got a wonderfull atmosphere, it is restored and furnished

very lovely, it is bright, well equipped and very, very clean.

The position on the top of a hill is more than picturesque.

Especially from the bedroom-balcony one has a fantastic

view over the hills of Piemonte.

The garden might be small, but the plants are beautiful and one can relax very good in the lawn-chairs or drink

a glass of Barbera in the evening.

Since it's eben cold in between, we could convince ourselves that the heater is working properly.

Culture, sports, fine eating and drinking- there is a lot being offered in the vicinity.

We enjoyed pur holidays there very much and we hope,

we will be able to spend a few days again in the near future.

Chiara and Marco are very pleasant hosts!!!

Un bel endroit et des jolies personnes

  • 5 of 5

Un endroit charmant. Le logement est très soigné et très esthétique ( bravo pour cette réalisation), bénéficie d un joli emplacement, petit village au pied d une église au sommet dune colline, au milieu des vignes et des noisetiers. J ai chaque matin pu regarder le soleil sevlevers sur les collines, c était magique. Chiara est très accueillante et attentionnée, des petits cadeaux nous attendaient. On resterait bien papoter avec elle et Carlo. Ce sont des gens comme eux, des paysages comme leurs collines qui me font dire que l Italie est belle.

La campagne est idéale pour la balade, vélo, footing, visites culturelles/naturelles/ou de producteurs. Asti, Alba sont proches, bref parfait.
