Beautiful House in the Hills

  • 5 of 5

We were a Big family of 11 People spending our summer vacation in Scarparone. The area is beautiful and the House Big, tastefully furnished and clean! Everything went very easy with the host and the communication was good through out our stay. The pool is just across the small Road outside the House which was good for us because we could controll when the children was there! We also visited the agriturismo next door for dinner and had a great experience!! And only 10 minutes by car to Alba:-)

Serene and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We're back in San Francisco, CA and we long for the serenity and beauty of Villa Mezzaluna. It's the perfect place for anyone wishing to get away from the chaos of daily life. The villa is located in a rural setting with lovely vineyard views and nestled among a handful of homes that make up the hamlet of Scaparone. Tastefully furnished with antiques, every room of the home reflects the refined elegance of Daniela, the owner. Her hospitable cousin Roberto lives in the villa next door and was available for any needs whatsoever while respecting our privacy.

The villa is meticulously maintained. Its shuttered windows and balconies add to the charm and allow filtered sunshine into each room. The bathrooms are spacious, the bedrooms are comfortable. The kitchen is definitely the heart of the home with its large farm table around which we shared meals and lots of laughter.

The pool is the focus of an enormous lawn covered knoll dotted with pines, fruit trees and flowers. It's absolutely amazing with plenty of lounge chairs where you can enjoy poolside cocktails or snacks. It is wise to note that the numerous steps leading to the pool area could be challenging for the elderly and that it is located across the quiet road from the villa's front door. It is enclosed by a gate for security and privacy.

It was wonderful to discover that Eataly, the gourmet supermarket is only a few miles away in Monticello. Next door to Villa Mezzaluna is a delightful trattoria where we enjoyed breakfast and late suppers served in a lively garden setting. The center of Alba is a short car ride away and well worth the the visit for fabulous shopping and dining.

We loved Villa Mezzaluna and can't wait to go back!

Loved it.

  • 4 of 5

What a lovely, fantastic property, especially for large groups. Gorgeous garden and pool area, giant kitchen, plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, well maintained, very quiet setting. Nicely located, too: not far from Alba, La Morra, Serra Lunga, although as there is absolutely nothing in Scaparone, you have to go into Alba proper to buy groceries, find coffee, etc. We thought the price point was perfect, had some lovely drinks down by the pool, and cooked up a giant meal in the huge kitchen. Would definitely recommend this to anyone with a group of at least 8 people.

Fantastic vacations in a charming typical house

  • 5 of 5

I am a diplomat posted in Geneva and came along with a group of friends to the Villa mezzaluna. It is a very confortable and charming house, totally loved the region its amazing wine and food, the spectacular panorama. We had an awesome time relaxing around the pool area and garden. Daniela is very welcoming and courteous, she made us feel like at home and suggested the best things to visit around Alba. I would definitely come back, even during the winter and the truffle season. Summing up our vacations here were amazing, and I would certainly recommend it!
