Great location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment in Alba. Alba is a terrific city with everything you might need. Great pedestrian area. The apartment is comfortable and well equipped. The garage is a great plus! The location is perfect for visiting all the surrounding area and enjoying great food and wine. Wish I could have stayed longer!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Laura met us and showed us to the private garage and then took us up to the apartment which is secure, modern and very well appointed. The location of the apartment is ideal for exploring the delights of Alba and the surrounding areas. The private parking is an absolute bonus.

A very special place

  • 5 of 5

Laura and her daughter Claudia were wonderful hosts. They made certain we had everything we needed and answered all our concerns quickly. The accommodations were immaculate and equipped with everything we needed. This apartment is located right in the historic section of th city of Alba which made for wonderful morning and evening strolls. There is a beautiful loop drive thorough vineyards with spectacular views. A special added benefit which is hard to find in a city like Alba was a garage on the premises with free parking. We would highly recommend staying here at Laura's place.

Highly recommend! Wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I vacationed in Alba for 9 days and were fortunate to have stayed at Laura's wonderful property.

The apartment is perfectly situated in town and accessible to cafes, restaurants, shopping and food markets.

Despite being so close to everything, the apartment is in a tranquil setting and is very quite at night.

The space was clean, updated and was supplied with ample cooking implements which allowed us to prepare several meals. Having a parking space on sight was convenient and made it easy when we wanted to take day trips.

We absolutely loved Alba and when we return we'll be staying here again.

Perfect location, apartment, parking and owner.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, apartment, parking and owner. We have visited Alba 6 times before and always stayed out of town. Our legs needed a break and we thought we would like to try staying in the old city portion of Alba itself. We were VERY fortunate to have found Laura and her rental unit. The unit is easy to find, and drive to, parking is VERY easy inside of the indoor garage with space for a medium size car. The apartment and unit has good security, the elevator works well. Heat and air conditioning re included and temperature control is excellent. There is a large patio just off of the kitchen. Seating is pleasent bedding very nice and the apartment is new enough to have good lighting and electrical service. The internet speed is fast. We have absolutely no negatives about our stay and hope to one day return.

Very Central

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, has all facilities needed and Laura was most helpful during our stay relative to things to see and do in the area. Steps away from the centre of town with lots of great restaurants and shops.

Alba and the Langhe hills are one of the most various food and wine of Italy. They are also ideal for those who love peace, relax, walking and cycling. Alba is full of restaurants and wine bars. In addition, many producers of fine wine are just a few km. A few miles away also the home of the Slow Food ..
