The Barn: adjacent to the farmhouse is a newly renovated self-contained apartment that has 3 double bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has its own en-suite with windows looking over the courtyard and country side. The second double bedroom is just off the open plan living room / kitchen area. There is an additional bathroom. The third double bedroom is on a mezzanine floor, it is in the eves of the roof, which add to the romantic feeling of this rustic Barns renovation. The apartment comes with a large open planned lounge / Kitchen. The family friendly front room has two large sofas.

So you can choice depending on your party size, we can offer you three different options. 1) The double room bed and breakfast. 2) The Farmhouse that sleeps up to 6-8 comfortably. 3) The Barn conversion adjacent to the Farmhouse which sleeps between 6 – 8. Or for the even larger family holiday you can combine the farmhouse & barn together sleeping between 10 – 12 comfortably.

Originally the hub of a hazelnut plantation, the villa is surrounded by fields, trees and gorges which create a landscape where there is a different view around every corner. The twisting and sometimes steep country lanes are variously cut into the rock, bridged over ravines and simply bordered by rolling fields.

It’s the ideal location for relaxing and enjoying the surroundings. The area, part of the Alta Langa, is famous for its' medieval castles, wines, cheeses, gourmet food including truffles, and of course, hazelnuts – many of which are grown for Ferrero and enjoyed throughout the world.

Beautiful rustic home

  • 5 of 5

The villa is extremely large with an oversized eat in kitchen and two lounges. All the rooms are spacious. The villa is set half way up the hill to Bergolo, a remarkably picturesque little town.

The view is fantastic especially from the oversized brand new deck.

A few recommendations of things to do:

- take a stroll on the country lane that passes the house. It goes all the way to Bergolo.

- wineries are all over the place. Nearby Barberis is outstanding.

-pizza at La Torre is excellent

- there is a butchery in Cortemelia where you can get some good steaks, cheese and local salamies

Alovely restored old farmhouse - a great place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

everything was great but the weather in April.....

The house offers lots of space for a quiet holiday.

With Alba, Acqui Terme and Asti within an hour drive away there are many opportunities for great day trips in the Piemont region from here.

Fabulous Italy Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

All three couples enjoyed a relaxing and perfect holiday in Bergolo.

Your hosts will make sure you are connected for great places to eat, vineyards to visit, and more.

Kitchen was well laid out, beds cozy and comfortable.

We all enjoyed our stay, the location and the hospitality were five star!

A fabulous villa, in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I spent a week at Villa Bergolo and discovered it was every bit as beautiful as it seems on the pictures... in fact, it was even better.

From the pool, which from experience is larger than at many villas, and the various loungers and sunshades around it; to the multiple terraces you have to choose from, with each equipped with a range of chairs, benches and tables; and then fabulous, large 'farmhouse' style bedrooms with very modern en-suites - Villa Bergolo was an amazing place to stay.

It's location, the perfect mix of stunning views whilst being only 10-minutes from villages and towns, was ideal and the owners could not have done anything more to make our stay both comfortable and enjoyable.

We would highly recommend wine tasting at Isolabella della Croce, which was kindly organised by the owners for us, and would suggest people take advantage of an offer to walk the grounds and hear about the history of wine making in the region as well as how environmentally 'kind' techniques are being used today.

We met some friends of the Villas owners whilst at the wine tasting, who we got on very well with, and so promptly invited them to a BBQ at the Villa the next night. Lee and Deana joined us too, and we had a thoroughly enjoyable time.

You do not get a true sense from this website as to quite how luxurious and well equipped Villa Bergolo is.

The house has been refurbished to a very high standard and had everything we could need for real comfort during our stay. The kitchen has a large, range cooker; dishwasher; and enormous fridge and freezer cabinets.

All in all - you really should choose Villa Bergolo for a perfect time away.

Owner's Response: Peter and his companion were lovely to have stay at Villa Bergolo. In fact towards the end of their stay we felt like we had friends staying. They kindly invited us to a BBQ were we had a great evening watching the sunset whilst sharing life experiences and eating great food and drinking excellent wine. They both took excellent care of the house and left everything just as they had found it. We would love to have them back and be able to share more about this truly amazing part of Italy.

Villa Bergolo

  • 5 of 5

Villa Bergolo is a beautifully restored, spacious farmhouse. Each double room is comfortable and large with a TV, an ensuite shower and WC. Nets over the windows prevent any insects from invading, there is plenty of storage space. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a comfortable sitting-room and a dining room, if needed. We thoroughly enjoyed the swimming pool with its magnificent view.

We had some lovely walks from the Villa and around the local village. We had some excellent meals out - there is a very good, authentic Pizzeria in Cortemilia which we enjoyed several times and a very special restaurant in Bergolo. We found that these meals were extremely good value compared with the equivalent in England. The countryside is magnificent with its hazel groves and vineyards and steep hills with amazing views.

Lee was a patient host in answering any questions and extremely generous in his hospitality. We had a marvellous holiday and would like to return.

Owner's Response: A kind loving Mother, Aunt & daughter who came to Villa Bergolo. Our Guests daughter of 11, took part in The International Music Competition at San Francesco Church, behind the walls of Franciscan Convent. Because of their late arrival we cooked them dinner and they kindly returned the gesture for us on another evening which was nice as we got time to sit and get to know them a bit better. They were lovely guests to have and we look forward to meeting them again. .

If hiking and walking are things that you enjoy doing, there are many attractions that can be reached on foot. One of the most scenic of all walks that visitors can experience is the trip to the Castle of Prunetto. The views from this historic castle are nothing less than breath-taking. The castle itself dates back to the Roman Age and is one of the oldest in the region. Visitors who come often love to take pictures, so remember to bring your camera along.

This region of Italy is known for its great selection of vino, a wine lover’s paradise. A visit to Isolabella della Croce is definitely a great opportunity to sample some of the areas’ best wines. Be sure to stop by while you are here. Food is another thing this region is famous for and there a many fine restaurants to try. L’Bunet is one of Bergolo’s excellent restaurants and they have really great traditional Italian food, including some of the best spaghetti in town. Another restaurant that is popular with tourists and locals alike is Osteria Langhet. People who come here often return again & again.

Along with delectable foods and wines, Bergolo also provides an impressive range of activities and events to occupy the visiting traveller. The fresh clean air and stunning views will lure holiday makers outside. The variety of nature trails for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and leisurely walking, can keep you busy all day. On days you don’t want to travel, you can swim, play tennis, volleyball, or simply relax on one of the terraces, a typical Langhe tradition. During the summer evenings, Bergolo hosts numerous lively and entertaining concerts. The commune has just finished the outstanding building of an amphitheatre, where you'll be able to sit under the Italian stars & watch live performances.

If you want to travel further afield, Alba, known for its white truffles and where they hold the annual Langhe Food and Wine Festival’s is a short trip away. Of course, if Barolo wine is of interest, one could simply travel to Barolo itself to taste of the wine and see the archaic but charming castle that presides over the municipality. Barolo itself holds a wine festival, called the Itinerary of Taste, which attracts and welcomes street artists, jugglers, actors and musicians as well as villagers and tourists.

The Piedmont region, known for its picturesque vistas of rolling hills, has so much more to bestow on the traveller than just wine and food. In Northern Piedmont, visitors to Cherasco can enjoy the enchanting antiques and collectibles market with all types of ceramics, kitchen utensils, hand-made linens and antique bric-a-brac.

In the nearby province of Turin, tourists can roam the halls of the Savoys' Royal Palace and, if the TIMING is right, can see the Holy Shroud which is kept in Turin, which is only on show once every 10 years.
