Beautiful place, fantastic view, and functional flat for couple with baby !

  • 5 of 5

Nice flat, very functional for a couple with baby. The bathroom is large, bright and not damp at all (if you don't use it as a bathroom of course) so it can be used as a bedroom for the baby. The parent's bedroom is very bright too with a lot of storage. The kitchen is well equiped but a little bit dark.

Outside there is a terrace with an absolutely spendid view over the valley, we loved it for having dinners. And in a quiet place of the garden there is a nice swimming pool, with also a fantastic view. Perfect to leisurely swim everyday with our little girl !

The village is very small but nice, with a good restaurant an a small grocery store, very practical, a few meters away.

Séjour charmant

  • 5 of 5

Charming one-week stay at Cascina Bricco / Olmo Gentile beginning of Sept. 2015 !

Excellent equipment of the apartment, including the refreshing swimming pool.

Also a wonderful starting point for nearby villages (Roccaverana, Santo Stefano, ...), Alba, and also the charming cities of Cueno, Montovi, Saluzzo.

Entspannung pur

  • 5 of 5

Wir (Ehepaar Anfang 30) haben neun Nächte in dieser schön renovierten und gut ausgestatteten Ferienwohnung verbracht. In der FeWo kann man sehr schön zur Ruhe kommen, aber in der Umgebung gibt es viele Möglichkeiten den Piemont und auch das nahe Ligurien kennenzulernen. Möchte man einmal nicht die Wohnung verlassen bietet das Grundstück mit Pool, Terasse und Balkon Gelegenheit den super Ausblick auf die Berge zu genießen und sich zwischendurch im "Panorama-Pool" abzukühlen.

Das Restaurant im Ort bietet super Essen zu fairen Preisen und die Menschen vor Ort sind immer bemüht einem den Aufenthalt zu verschönern. So wurden wir zu einem Konzert im "Kulturzentrum" (kleine Kapelle der Kirche) von Olmo Gentile eingeladen, das nach super Musik in einem Mitternachtsbuffet endete.

Wir würden gerne wiederkommen und können die Wohnung uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

Charming Town in Piedmont

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Olmo Gentile, the smallest town in Piedmont. The information provided for tours of the area were great. We took the scenic tour the first day and went wine tasting the second day. The roads were not for the faint of heart, but we found our way around. The area is beautiful and we wish we could have stayed longer. The apartment was very comfortable and well supplied. My husband even saw a deer the last day we were there.

Charming Town in Piedmont

  • 4 of 5

We spent two nights at this charming apartment in the smallest town in Piedmont. The information provided about touring the area was great. We followed the scenic tour one day and went wine tasting the next. The apartment was well furnished and had wonderful views. Tom even saw a deer on our last day there. We greatly enjoyed our stay and wish we could have stayed longer. The roads are not for the faint of heart but we found our way every where we tried to go.

Paar aus Nordrhein-Westfalen

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten 9 Tage in diesem piemontesischen Kleinod, das unseren Vorstellungen voll entsprach.

Die liebe- und stilvoll eingerichtete Wohnung verband Moderne mit Tradition und hat unsere Erwartungen bzgl. Platz und Komfort noch übertroffen.

Wenn man eine FeWo mietet und in einem Anwesen residiert, so kann es nur auf einen -nicht zuletzt auch aufgrund der exellent verfassten Infomappe- absoluten "Wohlfühl-Urlaub" hinauslaufen, der keine Wünsche offen läßt. Wir können uns vorstellen, diesen piemontesischen "Adlerhorst" wieder zu besuchen und werden es Freunden und Bekannten wärmstens empfehlen.
