We have just had our second wonderful family holiday here. We first stayed in 2015 and loved it. Then we thought it could not be bettered but we were wrong. The new owners have lovingly improved many things.
The house is roomy, really well equipped and very comfortable. The large well kept garden is great for children. The pool is by far the best we have had at any of the many houses we have rented over the years. The pool area has been beautifully upgraded with a safe non slip stone terrace and some welcome shade from a pergola.
Real highlights (as in 2015) were the two Sunday lunches cooked and served to us on a shaded garden terrace by the wonderful Ann and Joseph Stefani. Eight different plates each Sunday, from antipasti to dolci with five different wines to accompany the food. They are lovely people and the food and wine were excellent. Their local knowledge was also a real benefit when exploring the area.
As a family of three generations it can be hard to find a place that suits us all. This really did. I hope it will not be our last visit.
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.
