This small cluster of houses, surrounded by low-lying hills and vineyards, includes the guesthouse and the owners’ home next door. Each bedroom has its own entrance, private terrace with views, luxurious beds and walk-in rain showers. Breakfast is a sociable, buffet-style affair in the kitchen, or on the main terrace with its umbrellas and tables: freshly baked fruit tarts, breads, local cheeses – Robiola and Murrazano, sliced ham and prosciutto. With a bit of notice Annamaria can prepare local specialities for dinner too.
Take a book to the terrace or the manicured lawn for more view-gazing – it’s very quiet with just the occasional passing tractor. Antonio is the wine connoisseur so can organise tours for you, or picnics, cheese experiences, wonderful cycling and walking (guided if you prefer), even a day out on a Vespa.
The nearest town is Mango, 2kms, for shops and a rather bulky castle. Inside you’ll find an Enoteca with good wines.
