A thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable stay in this wonderfully rural and friendly establishment.
We stayed for 6 nights in the self contained 2 storey, 2 bedroomed self-catering property which occupies the central section (between the 4 bedroomed hotel and owners' own residence) of this tastefully renovated building and were delighted to have done so.
I can only echo all the positive comments made by the other reviewers - thoroughly recommended!
Own car is a must as situated down some narrow narrow lanes in charming countryside.
Fontanille is the closest village, only a 5 minute drive away, and has a little grocery/general store, a cafe where the (older) locals congregate and a magnificent church as the centre-piece of this small, quaint village. It's wine making 'Cantina' (a local co-operative which our host's grapes contribute to) well worth a visit - excellent quality product!
We took a day trip to (surprisingly attractive and interesting) Turin city centre, taking the train from Asti (c.40 - 50 minute drive away), which we would recommend for the experience and contrast to Fontanille
