A corner of Italy which encapsulates unique gastronomic delights, often only whispered as secrets to gourmets around the world. Here Nebbiolo reigns, with its noble sons -the Barolo and Barbaresco, protected by castles, towers and fortified villages But it was the farmers whose centuries of toil shaped the hills into the breathtaking landscape which widens the eyes of the tourist today. And under these so-special hills, the ultimate and most secret treasure: the White Truffle of Alba: the "grey diamond" that made Cavour crazy and sent Vittorio Emanuele II into ecstasy. Because the Savoy Piedmont of royal palaces and courts, of stately homes and gardens, retains its ancient wild and native soul in the Langhe and Monferrato. A soul with an ancestral beauty which is reflected in the snow-covered chain of the Alps which protects it from the ruffling of the marin, the sea wind that warms and perfumes it, providing the special microclimate for its inimitable wines.


Excellent! 4.6/5 -

Villa Mezzaluna, Scarparoni

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the area is beautiful and peaceful, the villa is spacious, comfortable and reasonably well-equipped with a lovely pool, though some of the kitchen utensils have seen better days. Vittoria was very kind and helpful and suggested lots of lovely restaurants for us to try.

My only criticism is that it is very expensive for what you actually get, the villa is semi-detached, and the garden and pool are across the road, although I did know this from the property description, it is quiet only leading to other houses, with a few cars and tractors using it. I was very surprised to find that on arrival only 3 beds were made up, we were a party of 6 and wanted to use all the beds, which is why I booked a larger villa. Vittoria was slightly reluctant to let us have more sheets and towels at first, though it was all sorted out quickly. Having paid to book the whole villa, I did not expect sheets and towels to be rationed, as the price we paid would have been the same for 10 guests anyway. I have a holiday let myself and always provide linen for the beds, whether or not the house is full, people don't always want to share a bed! However, I would like to reiterate we really enjoyed our week, and had great fun playing table football.

Beautiful House in the Hills

  • 5 of 5

We were a Big family of 11 People spending our summer vacation in Scarparone. The area is beautiful and the House Big, tastefully furnished and clean! Everything went very easy with the host and the communication was good through out our stay. The pool is just across the small Road outside the House which was good for us because we could controll when the children was there! We also visited the agriturismo next door for dinner and had a great experience!! And only 10 minutes by car to Alba:-)

Serene and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We're back in San Francisco, CA and we long for the serenity and beauty of Villa Mezzaluna. It's the perfect place for anyone wishing to get away from the chaos of daily life. The villa is located in a rural setting with lovely vineyard views and nestled among a handful of homes that make up the hamlet of Scaparone. Tastefully furnished with antiques, every room of the home reflects the refined elegance of Daniela, the owner. Her hospitable cousin Roberto lives in the villa next door and was available for any needs whatsoever while respecting our privacy.

The villa is meticulously maintained. Its shuttered windows and balconies add to the charm and allow filtered sunshine into each room. The bathrooms are spacious, the bedrooms are comfortable. The kitchen is definitely the heart of the home with its large farm table around which we shared meals and lots of laughter.

The pool is the focus of an enormous lawn covered knoll dotted with pines, fruit trees and flowers. It's absolutely amazing with plenty of lounge chairs where you can enjoy poolside cocktails or snacks. It is wise to note that the numerous steps leading to the pool area could be challenging for the elderly and that it is located across the quiet road from the villa's front door. It is enclosed by a gate for security and privacy.

It was wonderful to discover that Eataly, the gourmet supermarket is only a few miles away in Monticello. Next door to Villa Mezzaluna is a delightful trattoria where we enjoyed breakfast and late suppers served in a lively garden setting. The center of Alba is a short car ride away and well worth the the visit for fabulous shopping and dining.

We loved Villa Mezzaluna and can't wait to go back!

Loved it.

  • 4 of 5

What a lovely, fantastic property, especially for large groups. Gorgeous garden and pool area, giant kitchen, plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, well maintained, very quiet setting. Nicely located, too: not far from Alba, La Morra, Serra Lunga, although as there is absolutely nothing in Scaparone, you have to go into Alba proper to buy groceries, find coffee, etc. We thought the price point was perfect, had some lovely drinks down by the pool, and cooked up a giant meal in the huge kitchen. Would definitely recommend this to anyone with a group of at least 8 people.

Great house and pool in beautiful landscape

  • 5 of 5

We, two families of 10 people, had the pleasure to spend a week in this lovely house. We enjoyed the beautiful surroundings, the house which has great place for 10 people.

The house has a pool and the pool area is beautifully placed in a fenced garden with beautiful views of the surrounding hills.

All in all a great experience.

Très agréable séjour dans le Langhe - Monferrato

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans cette villa.

La localité Scaparoni est très tranquille. La maison est idéale pour 8 personnes.

La cuisine est très grande et suffisamment équipée.

Les chambres et les salles de bains sont spacieuses et disposent de nombreux rangements.

La table extérieure située sous la pergola es parfaite pour le petit déjeuner, déjeuner et dîner.

Le jardin privé avec une piscine de belles dimensions a été bien appréciée surtout avec de forte chaleur !

Nous avons été très bien accueilli, l'entretien de la piscine fût efficace et discret.

Nous avons été très contents de notre séjour et recommandons cette location.
