La vecchia segheria realizzata da nonno Becon,un vero gioiellino di storia dell'artigianato.E' l'attuale accesso alla scala dell'affittacamere
We stayed for 10 nights in May 2012 in Gianfranco's rooms-for-rent (in Italian: Affittacamere Ca d'Becon). The rooms are located on the first floor (second, if counted by American convention) of a two-storey house in the close proximity of the very small town of Bubbio, in the Asti area of Piemont region.
There is a free parking lot near the house available 24/7, so the place is ideal for those travelling by car / renting a car. The bus stop is around 150m away but we never attempted using the local bus service (though seen buses quite frequently). The place is around 2min. drive from Bubbio town center, 15 min. drive to the towns of Canelli and Acqui Terme, around 25-30 min. drive to the towns of Alba and Asti and around 1.5 hour drive (assuming using the autostradas) from Turin and Genova. The Serravalle Designer Outlet shopping centre is also only 1 hour drive away. There are quite a few good restaurants, including a few Michelin-starred ones, in the close proximity (calling before you go to check if it’s open is an absolute must for smaller places).
The premises include 4 rooms (2 with private and 2 with shared bathrooms) and have an independent access from the street. We occupied a room with a Double bed, a private bathroom with a shower and a balcony (actually big enough to be called a patio). The furniture in the room was antique, but very carefully restored and comfortable. The bathroom we were using looked brand new and unworn.
The premises also have a shared kitchen area equipped with necessary cutlery which the guests can use to cook their own lunch and dinner from products which can be bought in a few shops in town and stored in a shared fridge. Some basic food for breakfast (like pre-packaged toast, croissants, pastries, jam, honey, Nutella, fish preserves etc.) was also provided. A positive surprise was a Nespresso coffee machine with stock of capsules carefully topped up every day. There were also a few bottles of nice locally-produced wine available free of charge.
There was a free wireless internet connection available but the signal was not very strong (enough to check e-mails, though). Both the room and the kitchen had satellite TV with a few dozens Italian channels and there were also MTV and BBC World available in English.
The host Gianfranco lives in the other (isolated) part of the same house. During our stay he was always very caring, helpful and committed to assist us in every possible way. He speaks some English (and writes even better, thanks to Google translate) so there is no problem to talk to him.
Overall, our stay was very pleasant, the place just ideal for those renting a car (like ourselves) and wishing to get away from big cities and try some ‘real’ Italy. We can recommend the place and the host with utmost confidence.
