About Daniela Villa Mezzaluna
I was born and growed up in the environs of Alba and even today I'm falling even more in love with the Langhe and Roero area
Daniela Villa Mezzaluna purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1965
Why Daniela Villa Mezzaluna chose Alba
I decided to rent my house to extend the possibility to all the tourists of the world to enjoy and admire the enchanted landscapes of the Langhe and Roero, as well as to savor the aromas and taste of wine and local cuisine.

Villa Mezzaluna, Scarparoni
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.
We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your week. We apologize if any inconvenience was caused and I assume there was a slight misunderstanding on how many guests and rooms should be made up.
Anyway, we look forward to hopefully host you again and welcome you with a bottle of wine.
All the best and kindest regards.
Beautiful House in the Hills
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!
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!
Dear Guests, many thanks!
Thank you for writing your experience by us.
It's a nice reward for my efforts and for our area.
It will be a great pleasure to see you again as soon as possible and help you to stay always in a better confortable home and garden and to know many other seats and things to do all around.
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.
Gepflegtes Haus mit Stil
Sehr gepflegtes und gut unterhaltenes Haus mit geschmack- und stilvoller Einrichtung. Wunderschöner und v.a. grosser Swimmingpool. Gute Lage in der Nähe der schönen Dörfer des Piemonts. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt.
Beautiful villa just outside Alba
My wife, our 5 year old son and my sister spent a blissful week in Villa Mezzaluna. The house is tastefully decorated, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, the swimming pool and the garden are an oasis of peace and very well maintained. The kitchen is very large and well equipped.
The house is very solid and quiet.
Location is perfect: Alba is 10 minutes away and Turin about an hour. There is a large branch of Eataly, also about 10 minutes away in Monticello
My wife and I wanted to play tennis and we were able every day to book a court located 5 minutes away, also in Monticello.
Corneliano d'Alba is another charming village nearby.
Vittoria, who looks after the property, was very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay.
We all enjoyed the stay very much and would definitely consider coming back: we have been renting a property in Italy through HomeAway for the last 4 years and this is the best so far.
Few minor complaints.
There are no waste baskets in the bathroom which we found a bit odd.
The fridge is a bit small for the house if it is fully occupied; perhaps a second fridge could be installed in the laundry room.
The a/c in one of the bedroom and the adjoining kids' bedroom makes a regular, audible noise; we got used to it in the end, but it is something that should be fixed.
Thanks for your kind words. We are so happy to hear that you loved your stay so much!
Thank you for the tips and suggestions, we have already fixed all of the mentioned points.
We are looking forward to welcoming you back and greeting you with a bottle of wine from the area and a tennis match ;-) .
