Beyond Any Expectations

  • 5 of 5

This is a villa with a capital "V"! Beautiful building with more bedrooms and bathrooms than most people would ever need. Never a problem with hot water (my ongoing problem in Italy rentals). Large kitchen with all modern appliances including dishwasher. Fantastic pool with cover. Beautiful, well cared for grounds. The pool water was very warm due to the cover which we closed every night. Washer and dryer (which you could not run at the same time or it would pop the circuit breaker...easily reset). Easy ride from airport MXP (1 hour 20 minutes). About 20 minutes to Asti and about 45 minutes to larger cities like Turin and Barolo. Very attentive local people who checked up on us every other day and made sure the heat or air conditioning was working in case we needed it. Located near excellent restaurants e.g. Cafe Roma in town. Owner's wine celler with interesting selection of wine for sale. Great view of the Alps from the pool. I would recommend you bring a European cell phone as wifi and gps can be trickey in this mountain area. Best rental ever! So many rooms, I kept getting lost the first day. Highly recommend .

"We had an absolutely fan...

  • 5 of 5

"We had an absolutely fantastic holiday. The property is beautiful, very well maintained and private. The photos don't really do it justice. There was absolutely no noise to be heard and it was incredibly peaceful.

Viarigi is a village typical of the region, surrounded by fields of crops and vines. Other than during the village festival we didn’t see any other tourists in the village during our stay and felt we were experiencing true Italy. The locals were incredibly friendly and went out of their way to help us. Asti was about a 20 minute drive, and we also visited Turin and the Italian Lakes. We didn’t visit Milan although this is within driving distance.

The owner has ensured that guests are well looked after. We were given contact details of people who could help us if there were any problems. The gardens and pool were tended to regularly and all rubbish removed for us. We had a couple of visits from people (one Italian, one English) to check everything was fine and they also let us know about the annual village festival which we would have otherwise missed.

Our children loved the festival, the Italian food (we didn’t have a bad meal), the swimming pool, table tennis and table football. We loved the peace and tranquillity, the beautiful surroundings, the ice cream, and of course, the wine! We would definitely go back here and would recommend it to family and friends."

On the motorway A4 (Milan-Turin) take the exit Gravellona Toce, follow directions to Alessandria, and finally take the exit Casale M.to Sud.

Otherwise, from the motorway A7 (Milan-Genoa) go through the bypass A21 (Turin-Piacenza), follow directions to Turin, then take the exit Felizzano.

The town of Alba is ideal for those who love truffle.

If you want to spend a relaxing day, you can visit Acqui Terme with its thermal baths.

Do not miss the beautiful towns of Barolo, Barbaresco and Neive, a true world heritage and the flagship of our red wines!

90 minutes away from the famous Portofino on the Mediterranean Sea and Courmayeur at the foot of Mont Blanc.
