We stopped here on the way to Milan from Nice. This is a five star B & B. The accommodation is of a very high quality with views across the vineyards of the Asti region. When we arrived Doreen our host greeted us with a fabulous antipasto plate and a glass of Prosecco which we drank in her beautiful vine covered alfresco dining area. She told us all about the area and even opened a bottle of the local red - Barbera. Doreen gave us a great suggestion for dinner in a local restaurant and in the morning we had the most beautiful breakfast. We stay in many 5 star hotels and have never had such good food, warm hospitality and such spectacular views of Piedmont. This is a B & B that should be your destination on any visit to Asti. The antipasto, Prosecco and breakfast were all included in the tariff. Many thanks Doreen for sharing Casa di Maio with us and we will definitely be back.
