This was one of the best rental experiences we've ever had. Our apartment on the top floor of the villa was spacious and had every thing we wanted including a large, well equipped kitchen, wireless internet access, washing machine just outside of the apartment and enough space for 4 adults, although there were just 2 of us. Carlotta and her parents were extremely helpful in whatever way we needed them. As an example, we arrived quite late on a Saturday evening and rather than have to go out to dinner, they gave us pasta and some sauce, olive oil and bread and we cooked up a quick supper. The location is great for exploring the area by car. We went to the Piedmont wine region, Torino, and the Valle D'Aosta easily. It was also easy to go to the local store for groceries. We enjoyed sitting the beautiful garden in the evening with a glass of wine. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer.
