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.
The villa was absolutely perfect for six adults and six children. The property was clean, tidy and extremely well equipped, the pool warm and the gardens and surroundings well maintained. Eating outside was a real pleasure with fabulous views. The local village has a large selection of restaurants and bars, two supermarkets and is extremely attractive. The owner was easily contacted, prompt to reply to any queries and rang to make sure all was in order. We would highly recommend this property. A visit to Alba was worth the trip but Savona was disappointing and not worth the bother. A meal at Restaurant Marc Lanteri (Michelin starred) was a highlight and about 30 minutes drive.
