Excellent place to stay
Lovely apartment overlooking the moscato vineyards on the hills surrounding the villa. There are many good restaurants in the surrounding area, and as well a great place to buy food and cook it at home. Of course, the wine tasting is a must with some of the nicest Italian wines close by.
Elenor is a great host. She has given plenty of detailed information in her documentation. As we followed her suggestions, we found that she had quite good and reasonable taste. We were also lucky enough to be there at the same time as she and Glyn, so that we could interact from time to time. This is certainly one of the nicest places we have stayed. We thought that the interaction with the hosts was certainly a plus.
Our 2nd visit to Cascina del Noce for 10 days was even better! The well maintained property has sensational views from Alba apartment. Huge kitchen, seating area and extremely well equipped. The hosts were onsite and very helpful with wine suggestions, places to visit and restaurants. There is an excellent information binder of the area. After touring everyday, we enjoyed the pool. We appreciated many extra touches like the herb garden, pool towels, bar fridge, large assortment of wine glasses. We brought bikes which were safely stored in the garage. It is centrally located to all the beautiful sites in the Piemonte area. Highly recommended! Thank you so much Ellie and Glyn!
Fantastic place to stay
This is a really nice place to stay - and the owners really try to do their absolute best to ensure that everybody have a great holiday.
close to a lot of things - both for kids and adults.
been twice before - and will visit again next year.
Wonderful sojourn in Piedmont.
If ever we need to return to Northern Italy there is only one place we would return to - Cascina del Noce. Our stay here was the final stay of a five week visit to Northern Italy and we never imagined before we got here what awaited us. The whole package accommodation, scenery and wonderful hosts Eleanor and Glynn have made our visit an extremely pleasant and memorable one. We explored the area and around every bend we were speechless at the outstanding beauty of this area. One of our favourite days was spent at the panoramic lookout overlooking Castiglione Tinella and surrounds enjoying a picnic and bottle of wine. A must do. Another must do is a visit to the local restaurant Campagne Verde and be spoilt by the lovely Mirella. Ristorante del Belbo de Bardon in San Marzano Oliveto was a place we came across and enjoyed a delicious lunch. Unfortunately we must head home but hope to be back again soon and highly recommend Cascina del Noce.
Our second stay at Cascina del Noce and once again amazing.
We had a wonderful stay in the Alba apartment. The house has been beautifully restored with lovely ensuite bedrooms, and a lovely reception room / kitchen. The kitchen is very big and well equipped.
The gardens are equally beautiful, and the pool a great size.
Surrounding views are breathtaking, it's located in a very tranquil position, but there are many places to visit if you wish.
A very detailed guest handbook is provided with restaurant options and excursion suggestions.
We would definitely return.
Outside the summer season, there are many local festivals to provide a focal point for a long weekend or longer holiday in the area. Notably there is the huge Cheese festival held bi-annually in Bra in September, with entries from all around the world, the Alba Truffle Fair each weekend in October and November, the Palio of Asti horse race (older than that of Sienna) in September, and the festival in June each year celebrating the Siege of Canelli. In addition there are many local wine and food festivals held in the smaller local villages, such as the festa della barbera in Castagnole della Lanze held at the beginning of May, and the Rapule of Calosso in September. More information regarding festivals can be provided on request.
