A thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable stay in this wonderfully rural and friendly establishment. We stayed for 6 nights in the self contained 2 storey, 2 bedroomed self-catering property which occupies the central section (between the 4 bedroomed hotel and owners' own residence) of this tastefully renovated building and were delighted to have done so. I can only echo all the...

This is a wonderful "get away from it all" retreat in the Piedmonte region of Italy, right in the heart of Italy's wine producing zone. Indeed it is on a working vineyard. That said it is just a short drive to lots of interesting places including the cities of Turin, Milan and Genoa together with many small market towns full...

My wife and I stayed here for a few nights and it proved the ideal base from which to explore Piedmont. Its small size and remote location was perfect, meaning it was peaceful and relaxing, set in a wonderful vine-clad valley, but it remained within a few minutes' drive of the local town. The owners were extremely friendly and went...

We stayed at this hotel last year and had the most amazing tine. The area is fascinating and the hosts Mark and Karen are generous and very helpful. The hotel was amazing and we were treated to the most generous hospitality. We would plan to stay there again.

My girlfriend and I stayed here as the final stop on our Italian road trip, sadly only for 2 nights, I could have stayed much longer. The place is stunning, nestling on a hillside in the Piedmontese countryside. It is very peaceful and secluded. Before we had even had a chance to put our bags down Karen was offering us...

What a wonderful surprise. After a busy Italy vacation we ended it with the two most gracious hosts (Karen &Mark) in a most wondeful 4 room hotel. You need to carefully follow directtions to find it but you will be rewarded with accomodations as perfect as are the hosts. Only regret is we stayed on the last night of outr...

We spent 3 nights here in February and enjoyed every minute. The British owners are very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious with a lovely bathroom. Breakfast was simple but plentiful and the one evening meal well worth staying in for. If you like "off the beaten track" this is the place for you although there is...

“Self catering property has 2 bedrooms, both upstairs, a twin and a double ... with four-poster bed! Hotel has 4 rooms upstrairs, each with their own small balcony, 2 to the front looking towards trees, and 2 on the gable end with views out to the (nice, clean, reasonably sized) swmming pool and vineyards (I can't comment on the relative attributes of the room interiors but a guest we became friendly with was certainly delighted with hers)”

“The Red Suite has two balconies, one overlooking the Vines, the other overlooking the pool. There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms although Mark is more than happy to make you a brew "on demand" (no charge)”
