Recently renewed, furnished and fully equipped apartment in the historical city centre of Alba. Double room, bathroom with shower, equipped kitchen including dishwasher and cable TV. Bedclothes and towels will be at your disposal. I will welcome you with a bottle of water (although tap water in town is drinkable and nice tasting), coffee pods, tea bags and some local cookies for you to try! You will also find soap in the bathroom, shampoo, dish and dishwasher detergent.
During your stay you will live right in the middle of the Langhe Hills, have the chance to have a walk in the city centre at any time, choose a different coffee place every morning for your breakfast in the medieval streets of Alba! The apartment is a walk away from many local osteria as much as renowned restaurants.
By car you might decide to drive through the stunning Langhe hills, visit beautiful vineyards, lovely small villages and stop in one of the many old Cantinas where you'll have the opportunity to taste famous Italian wines or buy some bottles to remind you of our landscapes when you'll be back home. I will provide you with a list of usefull addresses and tips!
We spent a week in Alba and thoroughly enjoyed the ease and comfort of this modern apartment. Laura was very friendly and welcoming, answering all our questions quickly, and waited patiently for us, when we took an unexpected detour on our way to meet her on the first day. My tip to others on leaving the apartment on the last day is to remember to take the car out of the parking garage BEFORE slamming the apartment door shut with the key inside. We failed to do that and had to inconvenience Laura's very kind husband, who came to our rescue. And a recommendation for a good breakfast stop in the city is the cafe L'insolito a short walk from the apartment with fresh paninis every morning and a bustling atmosphere. We went there three mornings in a row and the waiter started remembering our orders. Charming!
Laura is more than perfect ! She took care of us during our stay in Alba. We loved her appartment which was perfectly situated in the old town of Alba (with a superbe parking space !) and brand new renovated. We definitely will come back next year.
We had a great time in Alba. The flat was a cool oasis in the hot weather! Laura was charming and helpful. The whole area was full of great opportunities to sample the dolce vita...we loved it. Food,fieras,wine,opera,markets and glorious weather.
We had a wonderful stay at Laura's apartment. She met us outside and spotted us right away, easing us into the underground parking which we had access to for the full three days. The apartment is brand new, with a very comfy bed, tons of space, coffee, fridge and full kitchen. The location is superb and we would gladly stay there again. Thank you!
As a side note, don't turn off the hot water tank switch outside the bathroom (it is right beside the light switch) or you will have a cold shower!
Laura is the sweetest host! She bought some amazing locally made cookies for us and left them at the apartment. She helped us so much. She called around different restaurants for us and booked us reservations at an amazing restaurant, when every place in town was booked solid!
This apartment was so comfortable and it was great having such a nice kitchen to have a couple of meals in.
The apartment was modern and the location was right in the old city. We could drop off stuff at home and continue walking around 5 minutes later.
Our stay in Alba was great. Thank you for picking us up at the train station. The apartment was modern very clean and perfectly located. It was easy to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Great food, great wine, we will visit again and hope we can stay with you. Thanks, Allan and Patricia Smith
Wonderfull Place in, In the Heart of Alba easy to find and a good place to enjoy the Life in that small lovely Town . The Perfekt Host Laura is very helpful , everything what you need is in the Apartment it is very clean and brand-new we feel like Home .Thank´s a lot for this experience.Next Time again.
great place to stay right in the center of Alba, only a couple of steps away from the duomo, several bars and restaurants! everything worked perfectly from the beginning to the end - a warm welcome, a tidy clean & new apartment equipped with all you need for a pleasant stay, and an uncomplicated departure.
the only drawback was the lack of wine glasses, given the location in one of the most famous wine regions of Italy - however this could easily be solved in one of the numerous wine bars in Alba and the Langhe!
All in all definitely a place to return!! :)
The apartment was very clean, spacious and cool. It was a lovely place to relax and in a great spot to explore Alba from. Laura was a fantastic host who went the extra mile to ensure our stay was special and stress-free.
