We had a wonderful holiday based in Casa Montaldo. Rainer and Lisa were very welcoming and on site to offer excellent advice on places to visit, and to ensure we enjoyed our stay. The property is comfortable and beautifully restored to a very high standard. There are wonderful, extensive views of the local village and distant hills from the terrace and swimming pool, although, as is to be expected in October, the water temperature was quite bracing!
The kitchen is equipped with everything you need, including an induction hob, but there is no oven or microwave.
The property is part of the owners house and their access is is via the patio area which is the also outside space for this holiday apartment, so it is not totally private. However, they are very considerate and this was not a problem to us.
Finally, we would thoroughly recommend Casa Montaldo to anyone wanting a base from which to explore this wonderful region of Italy.
We had a fabulous weekend at Villa Lucciola for the white truffle festival - the house is warm, welcoming, stylish and fabulously relaxing. Monique and Matthew were wonderful hosts and the Piemonte region is a beautiful part of Italy we had never visited before. We began our stay with a delicious lunch at Ristorante Le Torri in Castiglione Falletto, tasted some wonderful Barolos at Paolo Scavino and Conterno Fantino at Monforte d'Alba. The next day we ventured to the coast and enjoyed a great fish and seafood lunch whilst gazing out to sea, at Sirio restaurant at Spotorno, where the food, wine and conversation flowed! Wandered round the grounds of the house, enjoyed the stunning views out to the hills and forests from both the jacuzzi and from the very comfortable sofas at the top of the house where I retreated the read my book. Loved the pristine white bathroom and walk-in shower next to our room on the 2nd floor. Enjoyed a memorable white truffle dinner by top local chef Massimiliano di Torterolo of La Locanda dell' Angelo at Millesimo, and every one of Massimiliano's truffle creations, plus the amazing Langhe, Nebbiolo and Barolo wines accompanying them, was truly amazing... All in all a fantastic weekend at a splendid location, very highly recommended.
