From the first moment it was extraordinary. When we drove through the gate and up the driveway, the beauty of the villa and the gardens took us by surprise. It is a shockingly beautiful place. We had seen the photos, but to take in the loveliness that strikes the eye at every turn is almost overwhelming. A hillside of grapevines... More

Villa la Favorita was our first destination during a 20 day gastronomic tour of northern Italy. It came highly recommended by a good friend of one of our travelling companions and it did not disappoint. Owner Roberta and her daughter Michela were so welcoming and helpful upon arrival and during our 3 day stay. Their storybook B&B is located just... More

We were so happy to stay in Villa la Favorita. Thank you so much for. Here you really feel like staying at home. Best were the fresh fruits in the garden and the great breakfast. We never had something like this. Great tips for trips from the Landlady. Perfect time. Thank you very much!! Arno

We stayed 4 nights at the Villa and enjoyed ourselves on the terraces mornings and evenings. The breakfasts were the best of our 1 month trip. The location allowed us access by car to hilltop town restaurants and wineries. Roberta, the owner was very helpful and informative. She arranged reservations for us prior to arriving. We really appreciated her hospitality.... More

Villa La Favorita is exceptional. Roberta, who owns it, bought it the early 90s when it was a nigh-on derelict farmhouse. Down the years, she has spent a great deal of time and money and even more love and energy: today, she has an exceedingly-elegant B&B. I’m sure that there are many fine B&Bs in the region, but there’s only... More

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
