We had a fantastic stay in the Street View apartment in La Morra. Mariella was extremely informative from the very beginning, sending helpful information with maps of the area and recommendations for wineries and activities in the area. We had a very smooth arrival with keys in the lockbox letting us in although google maps directed us to the incorrect location, so it took a little searching in the town.
The apartment is very conveniently and centrally located in the small village of La Morra. Everything is walking distance in the town. The living area is comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to cook a meal (which we did one of the nights). The bathroom was spotless and the facilities were modern and worked well. The bed was extremely comfortable which I have so often found not to be the case in private homes in Europe!
Our communication with Mariella was also excellent. She was super helpful and was able to direct us to the most convenient parking lot location.
La Morra is lovely village - highly recommend visiting the Cantina and also the local eatery where you can get amazing Barolos by the glass.
Thanks, Mariella! We loved your apartment and if we're back in Piedmont we'd definitely stay again!
This is an wonderful historic property with extremely caring and gracious hosts, Gianni and Maria. The property has been in the family for five generations. The garden is beautiful, with so many fruit trees and flowers. The property also has amazing views of the hills and vineyards. We stayed in one of the upstairs apartments and loved looking out the window at the glorious views. The apartment is furnished with some lovely antiques and the bed was heavenly. We also really liked having secure private parking.
Gianni is a very talented artist and has a gallery in his home. He welcomed us and we so enjoyed his work. Maria also serves gourmet breakfasts which I have no doubt are delicious. We’re not big breakfast eaters so didn’t chose this option.
The owners are truly exceptional. They were so kind. They welcomed us with a bit of wine and cheese and shared useful information about the area. Most importantly they helped me when I became seriously ill and needed immediate medical care. My husband called them to find out where to go to the emergency room and they instead had their personal physician come meet us at the apartment. He examined me and gave me prescriptions. While waiting for him Maria made me tea and Gianni located the closest 24 hour pharmacy. Truly warm, caring, helpful hosts. I cannot thank them enough.
Just a short walk down the street there is a spot to go for coffee or pick up some lunch. Guarene is a charming small hilltop village. We walked to a local restaurant and wine bar called Imperfetta, which was in a renovated 16th century building; the space was used as the Count’s meeting hall. The food was outstanding and very reasonably priced.
I highly recommend this property. It’s beautiful and You will not find kinder hosts. Thank you Gianni and Maria for everything!
