About this listing
Apartment located on the top floor (3) of a country house totally immersed in the green at 10 minutes from the center of Acqui Terme and Spa. The house has a swimming pool, private garden, parking, cable TV and satellite, wireless internet.
The apartment was recently renovated and beautifully decorated with wooden floor is paved. The two bedrooms have one double and one bedroom with two bunk beds. The living area is equipped with a nice sofa, dining area and kitchen fully furnished and equipped with washing dishes machine
Me and my family are living in the other two floor of the house, so the swimming pool and the garden are using together with us.
We have three dogs and two cats.
The apartment was recently renovated, has a whirlpool tub in the bathroom, air conditioning (to be paid a part) and magnificent views of the green surrounding. It seems to be on another planet! The pool is very wide, 12 meters by 9 meters deep 0 to 4, is shared with our family and nobody else. Acqui Terme is rich in services and opportunities to play sports of all kinds.
Actually to enter in the flat the stairs is passing inside the house.
It is possible to use the sauna that is outside the house near the swimming pool with a small price.
We hebben genoten van de tijd bij Christina en haar familie, haar gastvrijheid is ongeëvenaard, we hebben mogen genieten van een paar heerlijke maaltijden die voor ons gevoel stonden voor de echte Italiaanse beleving. Lekker buiten eten aan een grote tafel met heerlijk eten en wijn. Het zwembad was lekker groot en altijd tot onze beschikking. We komen graag weer!
Cristina e la sua famiglia sono stati meravigliosamente gentili e disponibili. L'appartamento è esattamente come nella foto, forse una persona anziana potrebbe avere difficoltà a fare la scala un pò ripida all'entrata ma noi ci siamo stati benissimo ed eravamo 4 adulti e tre bambini. L'appartamento ha accesso alla piscina che è un angolo privilegiato di relax e pace da cui osservare le dolci colline limitrofe. Rientrando una sera abbiamo addirittura incrociato i daini sulla via sterrata che porta alla casa! Emozionante!
Very friendly welcome by Boris and Cristina. Fabulous location just above Aqui Terme (very steep access by car for the last 100 yards) with a magnificent view from very large pool. Our SC apartment was nice to live in. The hosts were always available to give advice on the area or help. You will enjoy this place if you are relaxed and like the easy going atmosphere among Cristina's large family (including lively dogs) and other guests. We would really like to come back
We will definitely not go there again…
The house is very noisy as well as the owners and dogs at 02:00hr at night, every night during our 7 days there.
The doors in the house are very very thin so there is absolutely no privacy and you hear everything in toilet and bedrooms.
The house has the smell of catspee.
In the room downstairs there are strangers sleeping and you cannot lock this from your side of the apartment so they can enter the apartment 24/7!
Internet was not functioning 4 times a week.
The owner has the attitude that it still is all very very good and “this is Italian live”. The foto’s look a bit design but in reality it’s not.
The location is very nice with great views as is the swimmingpool.
The family is not unfriendly.
The road to the house is very very steep and hobbeling.
When we were at home Airbnb advised us to aks money back which we got but the owner simply denies everything so I don’t think she changes things…
This was the first time we were so happy to leave…
This is for us the first time we had so a terrible experience with airbnb guests. Nobody complained and we always had positive references. We are in the countryside and when Yan told us that was catspee smell we immediately cleaned up and we reccomend not to leave the door open. The strangers sleeping in the room downstair are my nee and my son of 9 years old... Maybe we forgot once the door unlocked because we went to clean....... The flat is at the last floor of our house where we live with our kids (3) our dogs(3) our cats (3 + one puppy) but this is written in the description of the flat.... We are not used to make noise during the night but in the middle of august the kids sometimes came home late and maybe were talking a little bit too loud, it was simple to tell us the first time this happened!!!! We are always asking our guests if everything is fine and Yan never told us that were problems. Obviously the doors are thin, they are japanese doors as you can see from the picture. Yan instead entered several times in our private house without knocking....... I think Yan has a really bad carachtere... Not everyone can like everybody.
We had a wonderful stay in Italy. Totally new experience to us to stay as a quest in privately owned house. We felt very welcomed and our hosts were the best. They treated us like old family friend. I recommend warmly to everyone, especially families with kids.
Great place for holiday: nice hospitality, great and quiet location with exeptional atmosphere.
It was a pleasure to stay at Cristana's appartment. She and her family are very hospitable. Her cooking skills are amazingly and everyone should have a diner cooked by Cristina and her lovely family. We enjoyed our stay at Villa Gioia! Hope to see you again.

About the Host, Cristina
I'm coming from Milan, I have a wonderful family and wonderful child, I love to travel.
in June 2012 we decided to move to Acqui Terme and we are now living in this fantastic small town. I love to cook and I offer also the possibility to have realy Italian dinner/lunch for a very small price. Me and my family really love to have the chance to meet new people and offering our apartaments is an opportunity!!!
