B&B l'Antico Asilo is the reason for why, given a choice, I would always prefer to stay at a B&B while on vacation in Italy; leaving big, fancy and impersonal hotels for business trips. If you don’t have friends or family you can visit and stay with in Piemonte, Antico Asilo is as close as it gets to a genuinely local and personal holidays experience. Our hostess, Elena, would prepare the freshest and tastiest breakfast you can wish for – various (and I mean, various) local cheeses, charcuterie, home-made cakes, fruit, delicious bread. She would also offer to guide you to the best spots in the region, recommend local restaurants and make reservations, if necessary. Our double room, that had direct access to the small courtyard, was spacious and spotlessly clean; the same goes for the bathroom. The interior of the nursery school (asilo) is most charming and since Elena and her family live at a different house in Serralunga, it also affords a certain degree of privacy.
Have dinner at a local restaurant (2 mins away from l'Antico Asilo) "Trattoria Cascina Schiavenza" - it is run by the winemakers and both the food and wines are excellent.
If you can find a designated driver, consider paying a visit to trattoria La Coccinella in Serravalle Langhe (some 15 km away) - seasonal quality ingredients put together in imaginative but still local way. Delightful.
