This was really a lovely stay, we felt at home from the very first moment - we also found fresh butter, milk, honey and bread in the fridge, a welcoming, nice touch! The apartment is beautifully furnished and fully equipped, with a special attention to details e.g. the honesty wine bar. The view over Piedmont hills is stunning. This is a perfect place to relax and slow down and to start tours to Asti, Alba, Bra, and Torino as well. Helen is a very nice, friendly host and you can feel she and her husband truly want to share their love for this region with their guests - the guest book is full of very good recommendations. We surely will come back to Montegrosso.
We arrived in Montegrosso to a very warm welcome and proceeded to have an amazing few days in the Italian sunshine. The apartment is situated at the base of the castle on the hill with views over the valley from the brick wall that borders the backyard. We sat on the ancient garden wall with our drinks, played badminton and slept like babies.
Helen and Shaun were the most gracious of hosts.
We loved every second!
We had the pleasure of staying a week in Casa Mezzini. The apartment is beautifully restored and the view is amazing overlooking the hills.
We did daytrips by train to Asti and Genova otherwise having a car is recommended so you can visit all the beautiful villages around the area.
There are 2 restaurants within 5 minutes walk, both highly recommended.
The apartment was very well equipped with everything we needed. There are plenty of books and DVDs for a rainy day.
We would love to return
Casa Mazzini is a dream come true. It's elegant and comfortable, with everything you need. Helen and Shane have kept the historical bones and polished its outer coat, to perfection.
The village is picturesque and tranquil, surrounded by a patchwork of vines and crops. The views are stunning.
We enjoyed the local restaurant, the little alimentari and Shane & Helen's DVD collection. Their welcome scrap book and pile of maps and guides are very helpful too. There are many beautiful villages and cities within 15-20 minutes , to satisfy the eye, the palate and the soul.
Casa Mazzini is a beautiful place to stay. Thankyou for letting others enjoy it. We recommend it highly.
What a gem of a find!
We arrived by car from Turin but you could easily catch a train here to soak up a true Italian experience.
Stylish and comfort rolled into one. The owners have absolutely put their heart and soul into this place. So many thoughtful touches to make it stand out in a crowd.
Whether you want a romantic weekend away, chill out time with your bestie or some 'me time'. This covers all of those. The views are amazing. Some great local restaurants serving fabulous food. We also visited a local vineyard (Tenuta La Graziosa). A must do.
I could easily have stayed for longer. Most definitely a place I intend to return to again and again.
This is my second time staying at Casa Mazzini apartment and I absolutely love it here. The apartment is just gorgeous... peaceful and tranquil and I always have the best sleeps here. The sun was shining for our weekend in April and we headed to the local bar for a long, relaxing lunch one of the days which was fab; great food and very welcoming. We’ll definitely be back for a third time :)
Amazing weekend. Chilled out from the start. A real find. Beautiful apartment in boutique style Italian. Thoughtful touches from the hosts including books/DVD’s, an honour bar, tea and coffee and even a badminton set to use in the garden which you have access. Breathtaking views and so peaceful. Free WiFi and recommendations for local restaurants and places to visit. Parking outside and ideally located for exploring the surrounding countryside and towns. Great local restaurants and delicious food. Our first visit but definitely not our last. Can’t wait to go again.
