Now I have time to say thank you very much for our beautiful vacation in your house. The villa lived up to my expectation.
Our holiday was excellent. Many thanks.
What can you say about a vacation home that is almost too perfect to be true? Let me give it a try: Our group of 10 felt like kings and queens! The house has a large backyard providing beautiful views over the surrounding hills. It is not only beautifully furnished but very comfortable due to its generous layout with a very spacious kitchen, a beautiful dining room, library, living room, music room (with a grand piano!), and 6 upstairs bedrooms each with its own bathroom. There is so much space in the house that it never felt crowded even with 10 people staying in it. Want to have your private yoga session? No problem. Want to practice your dormant piano skills? Not a problem either. Love to cook like a chef? We prepared the most elaborate meals in the well equipped kitchen and even made our own jams and tarts with the sweetest plums from the fruit trees on the property. In order to make it even more perfect, there was a well tended vegetable patch with ripe tomatoes, lettuce and herbs for us to enjoy. Adding to the perfect outdoor setting were the large pool with non-chlorinated water, the barbecue and different seating areas with parasols. Mauro and Paola, a super friendly couple who take care of the house, came by several times during our stay with perfect peaches from their orchard, an additional highlight for all the foodies in our group.
The owner of this house is most generous with his tenants. Thank you, Andrew, for letting us stay in your Piedmont treasure!
Ten of us had a wonderful time at this villa in June. The gardens and pool exceeded our expectations and the villa was beautiful. We found that this was a very spacious house with a number of sitting areas and both shady and sunny spots in the gardens, which were very well maintained.
We were able to do some lovely walks from the door of the villa into the hills around with great views. We enjoyed trips to local restaurants and the near-by town of Moncalvo has a market on Thursdays and some good shops for meat and fish etc.
We would recommend this house to other large groups looking for a touch of luxury and plenty of space.
We stayed here from 27-07 for a week with a family of 12 to celebrate our parents 50th anniversary. Great house, everything you could possibly want is there. Great pool, very large kitchen and 6 bedrooms all with their own bathroom. The very friendly housekeeper Mauro and his wife passed by every day to look after the pool and garden.
Last day we enjoyed a lunch at Fabio's restaurant Tuais, just a couple of km's from the house. Really great!!
I would very much recommend this house.
We had a wonderful stay.
Only negative one can think of is the mosquito's which prevented us from staying outside all evening.
Cascina Dorato was the perfect place to celebrate a 70th birthday with 9 classy ladies. The views and amenities were a joy to experience as well as the charming and helpful care takers, Mauro and Paola. This large jewel of a home is hidden from the street creating quite a bucolic surprise when you discover the rolling hills, vineyards, colorful gardens and pool on its shuttered backside. The grounds were beautifully maintained as well as the interior. We really appreciated the fully stocked large kitchen complete with modern appliances, giant rustic farm table and even spices. We shopped at the local Penny Market and prepared most of our meals at the villa. The floor plan was ideal with all 6 bedrooms upstairs each with its own bathroom. We took advantage of every amenity including dining under the pergola, wifi, laundry facility, library and games by the pool.
During our stay we did day trips to Lake Como and Alba. We also took a train from Asti to Cinque Terra and visited the villages by boat, foot and train. We spent one afternoon lunching and shopping in the local town of Moncalvo. Out last night we enjoyed a personalized dinner made by chef Fabio in his charming Tuais Restaurant a few miles away. .......Highly recommend this villa and the stunning countryside for a rural escape into Italian paradise.
Our time in Odelango Piccolo was just perfect...The villa was spotless, and had everything needed to be on holiday...the kitchen was wonderfully equipped and the bedrooms and bathrooms were furnished impeccably. Mauro, the caretaker, was a wonder!....We all had such a lovely time, and look forward to a return trip....Piemonte is a perfect place to see the Belissima Italia....without all the crowds!!!!
Odalengo Piccolo is a village near the medieval town of Moncalvo and located in the lush hills of the Monferrato region which rise from the rice fields of the Po valley. It is surrounded by vineyards, truffle forests and hilltop villages steeped in history. It is in walking distance from a local family run trattoria and a short drive to several excellent Piemontese restaurants. Close to the house lies the property of one of the largest wine producers of the area where an excellent Barbera and Grignolino can be purchased. The house is well located for daily visits to Milan, Turin and Genova.
