The Experience

What a renovation! Computer programmer and whizz-at-cocktails Alessandro, and architect/designer Monica, alive with happiness and creativity, gave up lives in Turin for this dream: to renovate a village farmhouse in lovely Piedmont with glorious vineyard views. Casa Isabella is heaven. Doors and tiles have been reclaimed and walls painted in classic hues (ochre, slate blue, a dash of claret); elegant 1920s furnishings mix with unusual paintings and contemporary quirkery; lights have been inserted into stone stairs, bathrooms have exquisite hand-made mirrors, and coloured candles illuminate grandmother’s cutlery. Bedrooms are huge and two have balconies. Monica’s food is delicious, the breads and pastas homemade, the menus regional, the wines local; a sample of salami or a snack of crudités from the kitchen garden are yours whenever you like (do be aware this may not be the case out of season so check before you book). Heavenly breakfasts are served, when you want them, in the dining room or in the shade of a tree; in winter, logs smoulder. Books by the score, boules in the garden, a charmingly natural pool for swimmers, and a bustling market town 15 minutes down the road.

Accommodation

Reviews

Casa Isabella is a perfect place to get away from everything and relax. We hired the apartment for 12 days intending to use it as a base to explore the region but the view was so much prettier than most others we found that we ended up spending a lot of time by the beautiful pool, simply reading and enjoying the glorious September weather. The one "disappointment" was that Monica does not provide dinner in September but the very walkable local restaurant (Piazza Crova 3) was a good substitute. The apartment itself was bigger than it seems from the photos. Shower is large and bed king size.

Isabelle, London

Charming farmhouse that has been beautifully decorated. Very charming hosts who welcomed us, our baby and dogs during our road trip. They recommended a lovely restaurant in the town too.

Isobel, Cheltenham

A magical place, inside and out. Tastefully and creatively decorated, with every comfort. The pool must be 20 metres long and perfect to work off all those delicious high quality meals. We came back tonight and the bed had been turned down , side lights turned and our room had been tidied too. Alessandro is charming, and speaks fluent English , much better than my Italian. There was fresh fruit in the room, and a bottle of wine to geeet us and the sheets and towels and bed are all top quality. We can't wait for the breakfast tomorrow morning which we are convinced will not disappoint.
