Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

Cottage in a quiet sunny location in the Bormida Valley, lovingly renovated. Very tranquil spot surrounded by flower and vegetable gardens. Far from the big cities, if you want to relax, hit the road with a bike, hike in the hills, enjoy wine tastings, practice yoga or get a massage, this is the perfect place. The area is renowned for the local food and wines, for the hot springs and Roman remains. You can take the kids to swim to the beach or to the river, explore Alba, Turin and Genoa.

We had an absolutely fabulous vacation ! Totally recommendable ! Discrete but very accessible host, very childfriendly (when even the tooth fairy knows where they live:-) ) Feel on top of the world on a hill in northern Italy, with a river closeby to refresh your mind. Don't …

We spent a lovely week in Francesco's house in the steep, quiet, green hills of Melazzo. He and his partner Barbara are the best hosts you can imagine. They gave good advice on things to do and see in the region: swimming in the river, nice markets, villages and towns to visit. A…

In 2016 begins our project of life called Yogam Farm. Francesco and Barbara both walk hands by hands to pursuing their dream: live in a rural setting – after many experiences in Italy and abroad, back to the land of origin – where cultivate (in the true meaning of the word) new h…
