We've just returned from a most relaxing week. Lovely house, wonderful setting and way beyond our expectations
Thanks Michelle and Nick
We had an excellent time. Villa is lovely, in beautiful setting and pool fantastic. Very helpful, friendly owner. Many great local restaurants and lovely gelateria in Dogliani. Only an hours drive from Turin which is worth a visit. Would definitely recommend. Thank you. Fiona W.Sussex

This fantastic farmhouse in Cissone has everything for a perfect stay coupled with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. We could not have asked for more; very clean, well equipped both inside and out - including hammocks for the garden! The pool is large and well maintained and also has beautiful views - a very relaxing swim. The owners were very helpful with great suggestions on places to visit and restaurants to try. There are lots of restaurants and bars to choose from in the nearby towns of Dogliani, Bossolasco, Roddino, Serravalle & Monforte where we always received the warmest of welcomes. We are already looking forward to returning and would highly recommend - a great base for exploring the area.
We have recently spent a wonderful week at Casa Collina, a beautifully restored farmhouse in the Langhe area of Piemonte. The house is very well equipped with everything you need and the large swimming pool is lovely - there are even hammocks to relax in! The views from the house are stunning as it is set amongst the vineyards of the Langhe, and there are plenty of restaurants and bars to try nearby, as well as the beautiful hilltop towns of Barolo, Monforte D'Alba and Serralunga to visit and indulge in some serious wine
We are already planning our next visit.
The real Italy, a place to relax and enjoy life!
If you want a beautiful place to relax in peace and quiet this is it! Set in the foothills in Piedmonte, this rural, restored farmhouse with lovely pool is the place to do it and is suitable for all ages. The picture above does not do justice to this clean, comfortable, well equipped and furnished farmhouse and pool. It has a lovely patio area, comfortable outdoor furniture, barbeque and outside evening mood lighting. As you lie by the pool you rarely hear a car, just the muted rural sounds of cockerels crowing, chickens, geese and the occasional dog barking across the valley, while watching kites hunting overhead. This area has few british tourists, always a plus for me, and the local people speak limited English, but cannot be more helpful or hospitable. Local produce in shops is fresh and wholesome if you want to self cater, but there are many small, unique restaurants in beautiful settings near by with stunning authentic food and a great welcome and service from the proprietors. Local bars often provide unasked delicious plates of food when you order a few drinks.You do need a car to get about as distances to the local town of Dogliani and the restaurants are to far to walk on winding unlit roads with no pathways. You can tell the owners spend time here and love it. The house gives the impression of a cherished holiday home. My idea of Paradise, and I look forward to my next visit.
Having just returned from our vacation in Piemonte we're already missing the house which we found to ve simply amazing! Both the house itself as as well the outside area and terriffic swimming pool more than lived up to our expectations.
It was easy to get to practically every area of Piemonte we wanted to visit from here, including Barolo, Alba and Asti, and just a short walk up the hill is a restaurant which we can highly reccommend - Locanda dell'Arco. The owner of the property was also very helpful through every step of the process and gave us all the information we needed before we arrived.
Summed up; we'd love to return and would be more than happy to act as a reference for the place!
We simply loved this villa in Cissone! The villa itself is charming - it has lots of character and original features, but at the same time it's decorated in a simplistic, modern style. The two bedrooms are large and airy, with huge windows that let lots of light in. One of them is en suite, and there's also another shared bathroom, both recently refurbished with quality fixtures.
The view from the yard is breathtaking! All green Italian hills, and a few scattered houses. Don't worry - there are no neighbours anywhere near the villa, and you'll have perfect privacy. The outdoor area is wonderful - a huge dinner table as well as a sofa and a few armchairs with a coffee table. The pool is very big, more than enough for the whole family to have lots of fun. There are also loungers to sunbathe on and parasols to relax under when it gets too hot. And boy, does it get hot! Anyone who's ever been in Italy knows how hot and humid it can get, and Cissone is no exception. The good news is that in the evening it does get fresher and it's perfect for having a BBQ and a few cocktails outside.
I'd highly recommend this villa to anyone.
We had an excellent time. Villa is lovely, in beautiful setting and pool fantastic. Very helpful, friendly owner. Many great local restaurants and lovely gelateria in Dogliani. Only an hours drive from Turin which is worth a visit.
Would definitely recommend. Thank you.
