I spent my Easter vacation with family and friends at the excellent Villa Carlotta near Costiglione d´Asti. This accomodation is very spacious and well furnished, with an ample and well equipped outdoor area (dining table and chairs, lawn chairs and barbeque). Guests can relaxe by the large swimming pool on the comfortable sunbeds, surrounded by beautiful and well kept trees and plants. The location is very central and makes it easy to explore the many interesting places in the Piedmont region, including Barolo, Bra, Asti, Alba, Cuneo and Acqui Terme. Last, but not least, the owners are extremely friendly and accomodating. I highly reccomend staying at Villa Carlotta.
