My fiance and I stayed here the first week of October and it was an amazing experience. We were able to attend the Wine Festival in Alba on a Sunday which was only 10 Euro to try over 80 types of wine from the region. Roberta was great and provided us with so much information before we got there (even... More

The many varieties of fruit trees, roses and other plants and shrubs is lovely...not mention the little pond and waterfall complete with a friendly... More

We stayed here for a few days and Roberta is a great source when it comes where to dine best. Our rooms were small, basic and old fashioned. We haven't been overwhelmed with the breakfast and its served - no choice here. We quite like a good Cappuccino in the morning and preferred to drive to town. However, it seems... More

My husband and I stayed here last week and we just loved it. Roberta was a wonderful hostess, always helpful and full of tips and recommendations for area restaurants and things to do. Her B&B is gorgeous, with beautiful gardens and common rooms. Our bedroom had a view of Alba, with a small balcony. The breakfasts were delicious and filling,... More

This was absolutely one of my favorite destinations and accommodations of all time! We stayed at Villa La Favorita for 3 days at the end of June 2013. Roberta is clearly well connected and well organized, managing to get us a table for 5 in the most amazing restaurant at the top of La Morra with amazing food and views... More

Was such a great place to stay, such lovely rooms, beautiful breakfast and very relaxing surrounds. Roberta is the perfect hostess, with many useful tips and ideas for the days outings, always looking to see what's happening in the area.
