This was my 4th time to spend a week. On the hill overlooking Alba. I have never been disappointed. Only about 9 rooms. Fantastic homestyle made to order breakfasts included in room rates. Family operated. Centrally located between Barbaresco and Barolo for winery visits. The International Truffle Festival is in nearby Alba every October-November. I will go back.

I have been visiting this B&B for over 10 years. Andrea Giacosa and his family run a fantastic operation. The hotel is situated on a hillside overlooking Alba on the road to Neive and Barbaresco. The rooms are spacious and always clean. Breakfast is a treat with homemade jams, fresh fruit, breads and the best soft boiled egg I have... More

We loved staying at this charming place. Genuine and friendly service. Nice, well-kept area. Great view of Alba and surrounding area. Lovely breakfast with so much good cheese. The room was very nice and felt cozy, with a big terrace. Only downfall is the road to the city. Walking along side the road at night with a baby in the... More

Our group of 13 stayed at Villa La Meridiana for 5 nights, and had a lovely stay. Our room: my hubby and I were allocated a room upstairs in the main house (above the kitchen and dining area). We had a private balcony, and it was nice to sit there and read in the late afternoon. The room and bathroom... More

Rooms are fairly basic, as reflected in the modest room rate. However, the breakfast is outstanding - the host Andrea is an excellent cook and very accommodating. He went out of his way to make it a special experience. The grounds are lovely and scenic. A 15 minute walk into town, it would be best experienced with a car.

We stayed for several nights and enjoyed a delicious breakfast daily with fresh jams made from the homes' homegrown fruit and cappuccinos prepared by Andrea. He was a gracious host who provided helpful recommendations for the area. We walked the 15 minute walk down the trail the town of Alba a couple of times, but at night preferred to drive... More

In November, we enjoyed 6 nights at Villa La Meridiana, 5 minutes from the center of Alba. This was our base for our exploration of Piedmont, which worked perfectly for us! The buildings of the villa and grounds are lovely. You can also walk through the hills surrounding the property. We had an apartment with a sitting room/small kitchen, a... More

Our room was very comfortable and the bathroom was up to date. Our host, Andrea, was fantastic. Each morning we had a beautiful breakfast laid out for us with homemade breads and jams. And if you...

We spent a night here and would have stayed longer, as the property is beautifully situated with a garden and pool and a great view. The room was comfortable and quiet with crisply ironed sheets and a modern bathroom, the breakfast was made to order and very generous, as was the whole family who made you feel right at home.
