Great welcome from host, everything immaculate and the apartment fully equipped. A bit of a long walk into town but we did it twice as parking was at a premium in Alba. Large rooms, large balcony, efficient air con (was unseasonably hot for late September) and a 24 hour supermarket just 10 minutes walk. Highly recommended. Parking is easy and free......you do need a car to explore.
I was on the fence coming here only because it meant doing a crazy business trip through the Netherlands the following week. In the end it was well worth the extra effort and cost. Our hosts Ellie and Glyn are first rate hosts. You can see the love they've put into Cascina del Noce their property. I give them full marks for making this villa a great getaway to a part of Italy that in my view and experience is better than Tuscany which is overrun with tourists and overpriced. We stayed in the Canelli apartment which is more basic than their upstairs apartment which has the WOW factor but don't get me wrong the downstairs unit is still VERY comfortable and clean. I brought my road bike and was thrilled with the great riding that can be found in the area - Ellie and Glyn were only too happy to make room in their garage for our bikes. Another great discovery was all the wonderful wineries some have been around for 100 years. We spent a few hours at a winery literally down the street from our place where we sampled Barolo and Barbaresco wines. I wish I could have stayed longer but for me that's the sign of a great trip. Thank you Ellie and Glyn for creating a very special place in a gorgeous part of Italy.
