We had the most wonderful stay in Agliano Terme. Although we did not have the opportunity to meet our hosts, they have provided us with al the right tips and tricks to spend our holidays. We took the chance the visit the best local markets, wine producers and trattorias. We would definitely recommend thus stay!
Vi hadde den store glede å feriere i Piemonte i begynnelsen av juli 2014. Det er et fantastisk området, og Agliano Terme er en liten stille by men likevel utrolig hyggelig. Restauranten Milonga hadde fabelaktig mat og personale, vingården Rosso Giovanni arrangerte en veldig god vinsmaking på oppfordring fra vertsskapet Ole og Cathrine. I det hele tatt var befolkningen i Agliano veldig gjestfrie.
Vi var også så heldige å være på Casa Gioia samtidig med vertsskapet, og hadde det veldig hyggelig sammen. Svært hyggelig leilighet og nydelig uteplass. Vi fikk også gode råd om utflukter i området. Jeg vil spesielt anbefale den fabelaktige lille byen Neive, omtrent 20 minutters biltur unna. Her er det bare å bøye seg i støvet for restauranten La Contea, men også nevne vineria'n L'Aromatario som i tillegg er et lite Bed and Breakfast!
Vi har absolutt ingenting å klage på vedrørende verken stedet, huset eller vertsskapet. Vi kommer gjerne tilbake!
( her ble det veldig mye "hyggelig", men det var akkurat det det var :-D )
We were warmly welcomed by Catherine, Ole and their friends. The house is nice and has a great terrace and a lovely garden, with a wonderful view on the countryside and the Alps in the background. The village of Agliano Terme is beautiful and has shops, cafe and restaurants, and also there we were very warmly welcomed. This place has a great position to explore the Piemont. We would come back with pleasure.
We are both born and grown up in Oslo, where we also live and work. We loves taveling and explore new cultures, people, food and wine.
After more than 25 years of traveling, mostly in Asia and Europe, we landed in Agliano Terme where we now have our second home.
Agliano gives us easy axcess to things we like, interesting people, trekking in the mountains, bisycletrips among the wine yards, hundreds of nice restaurants and plenty of winemakers that produce the best wines in the world.
Can't be better, try it your self!
