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

The Villa and grounds are charming and the rooms well decorated. The surrounding countryside is glorious with the host being able to provide you with better tourist information than the official one in town. We enjoyed our stay here and they produce a nice local red wine which you can sample during the evening in one of the many terrace... More

Form the minute we booked our stay at Villa La Favorita we knew we made the right choice. Roberta always quickly responded to emails and questions. She was helpful in organizing a fantastic wine tour, where to rent a car and more. When we arrived we were greeted with a warm smile and a heart felt welcome. A complimentary bottle... More

From the very beginning, before we even arrived, Roberta was thoughtful and kind and helped us in several ways. The house and room were lovely and the surrounding garden is beautifully appointed and landscaped; however, it is very easy to walk to town so one has the best of both worlds in being centrally located but with a strong feel...

Roberta's B&B, Villa Favorita in Alba is a pure delight in every way. The location, just outside the historic district of Alba is perfect for walking into town or driving into the scenic hill towns of the Piedmont area. The Villa itself is on beautifully tended grounds, the interior is lovingly decorated with taste and comfort. As so many have... More
