What a beautiful apartment! You can tell the owner has an eye for lovely things (as well he should being he is a famous photographer). If you have a dream about staying in an true Italian apartment you will not be disappointed. Everything was well appointed with all you will need to make your stay enjoyable. The balconies are perfect for enjoying the street scene below and super centrally located for walking the town of Alba or exploring the Piemonte wine region. If arriving by car there is parking at the train station which is very close. Make note: this is a 4th floor walk up. I must thank Daniela and Aldofo for all their help. Adolfo was so kind and explained everything so well and Daniela even met us at the train station and delivered us to the apartment. HIGHLY recommended! P.S. Since it is in the city center bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper.
Thanks again Daniela and Adolfo!!
Like living in a palazzo for a week
This is an apartment of a traveler's dreams if those dreams include soaring ceilings, both antiques and modern decor, a bathroom from a 4-star hotel, chandeliers, and a well-equipped kitchen. The apartment is as pictured on the website. We only used the larger 1 of the 2 bedrooms, which had lots of dresser drawers and a large armoire. The living room has a comfy couch and large-screen TV with tons of Italian-language channels. Adolfo met us with a smile and reviewed the thoroughly helpful house brochure with tons of information about Alba and surrounding areas. He kindly made a call for us about a sagra that my lack of Italian language skills would not have allowed.
We spent time hanging out of the windows and standing on the balcony in the bedroom, observing the street scene below. The street scene can run quite late on a Friday and Saturday night and on the nights of events, and the large windows don't do a great job keeping out the noise. The apartment is on the third floor (fourth floor for American counting) and there is no elevator--but that helps with working off the calories from the gelato and great food and wine that Alba offers.
The winding, cobblestone streets of the centro storico contain hidden gems of restaurants and enotecas, and the main street through the heart of the area, where the apartment is located, has many shops, cafes, bars, and gelaterias. The apartment is located on an area pedonale where cars are restricted, providing a boulevard for strolling. We were very happy with the location. We rented a car to access the Barolo and Barbaresco wineries and had no problem getting parking in the underground garage on Piazza San Paolo a few blocks from the apartment, even during the Festa dei Vino.
