2.35km from Agriturismo Cascina AbateI really liked staying at this place. It came highly recommended by friends who stayed there the year before and we were very happy with it. It's charmingly rustic with just the right touches. They do play it up a bit with some of the old farm/villa objects carefully placed for maximum charming effect - but it's done really well and the place is overall very comfortable and peaceful. It's evident that the proprietors have put a lot of work into fixing it up and creating a nice experience for guests. But, old villas are what they are; a bit musty and creaky and not a whole lot of outlets. However, any guest who's ever stayed in a 200+ year old villa will very much appreciate that the bathrooms are tip top (not too common in a lot of old villas!). But, be sure to pick your room wisely and know that the bathrooms in some suites are located off the main inner bedroom such that the person staying in the other room has to go through the main room to access it. Again, old villas... It's a little off the beaten path and you won't be walking to town from this place. But to be honest, we liked that aspect, mainly because it was super quiet at night - the only things we heard outside were crickets, birds, and the occasional church bell. The surrounding area is gorgeous too. And there actually are quite a few trails and walking paths through the vineyards and hazelnut orchards up the hill. Believe me, it's worth just wandering around and taking in the views. In our case, it made for a good central hub and was only a 20 minute drive to each of the wineries we visited (e.g., in Barolo, Barbaresco, Serralunga, etc.), and it's equally close to Bra and Alba for when you want to go out for dinner or explore the towns. The food was really good. All homemade and wonderful. Definitely worth a try at least one night. The breakfast buffet was excellent - almost too many choices - and the coffee was perfect. Above all, the staff was excellent. Super accommodating, polite, informative, and all around pleasant. If you want that old country villa experience with a bit of updated charm, then I'd certainly recommend this place.
