Roberta goes out of her way to make visitors feel at home, and is extremely helpful with other travel plans. The villa itself is lovely, I picked ripe cherries off the tree, and the breakfasts that come with the room are out of this world. This is like being at an AgriTourismo villa, yet still close to town. My 3... More

Absolutely loved our 3 days here in April! It was the perfect place to stay while exploring the Piemonte Region. Within walking distance of the beautiful city of Alba (way nicer than Asti) and easy access to the fabulous towns of Barolo, La Morra, Bra, etc. Roberta made us feel very welcome almost like old friends. We sat out one... More

Our group of 8 recently stayed for 4 nights at Villa la Favorita. Favorite of mine indeed. My husband and I stayed here in 2007 with another group of friends and we just had to return. Now in 2014 not much has changed, I would say Roberta and her staff are better than ever. Upon our arrival we were greeted... More

We stayed at Villa La Favorita for five nights in mid-August, and we cannot say enough good things about our stay. Roberta was so inviting and helpful. She helped us many times giving information on day trips, sites to see, and restaurants in the area to try. The rooms were very clean and inviting. Ours had a balcony that allowed... More

Roberta went out of her way to accomodate us and she made us feel like we were at home. After traveling in Europe for 6 days (first Germany, then Switzerland) we somehow made it to Alba with no GPS (Our German GPS would not go past Switzerland, so we had to navigate "old school"- it was tricky!) we were looking...

We found this place excellebt for our stay in Alba. Great breakfast, a clean and spaceous room - and the service was excellent from the day we booked the stay. Roberta and her daughter even got us tickets for Neil Youngs concert in Barolo - outstanding!

My wife and I stayed here for three days on our honeymoon and had an amazing experience. Roberta was such a kind and gracious host. She went out of her way multiple times to ensure that we were having a great time. The breakfasts were all incredible (and huge!), including homemade jams and pastries and fresh juices. She is also... More
