“Fantastic stay at Il Sol de Rive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2009

On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Maurizio : a drink, a snack, a lot of information. Although Il Sol de Rive is quite isolated in the hills of Sinio, it is rather easy to find. What a tranquility and peace... Conversation was in english, a relief because our italian doesn't amount to much...The rooms were very clean, fully equipped, spacy. In the morning a delicious, copious breakfast : véry good !
Maurizio knows the neighbourhood : following his advice we had a wonderful winetasting in a nearby small family domain.
We only stayed for two days, a pity because our host has travelled 'half of the world' : it would have been nice to exchange experiences...

On returen from a vacation on Corsica we stopped over for 2 nights at the Il Sole delle Rive to discover the heart of the Langhe area in Piemonte. Maurizio and Maria renovated the house very beautiful and with great taste. On a short walk in the area, not only Maurizio showed detailed information and maps, also their dog Jerry accomponied us as a real guide. The warm welcome from Maurizio, his tips and knowledge of the area, the very nice and clean room, good breakfast and the beatifull villages made for a very pleasant stay.

We stayed 2 nights in this wonderful B'n'B in a beautiful location in the hills of Piemonte. Located in a newly renovated farmstead, the rooms are clean and quiet. The breakfast is extraordinarily good and often served in the garden with a view over the valley. Maurizio and Maria have excellent local knowledge which they happily share. The dogs Tom and Jerry add a joyful and lively touch to the old farm. We were fortunate to arrive in time for the festival of the nearby village of Sinio. Our hosts invited us to join them at the festival and we spent the evening sampling the traditional local dishes and wonderful wines!
We spent the second day hiking through the scenic wine and hazelnut fields to a nearby winery recommended by Maurizio.

Maria and Maurizio go out of their way to ensure their guests a personal and unforgettable stay. I can wholeheartedly recommend staying in Il Sole Delle Rive.

  • Liked — Great hospitality, great hosts and fine location.

A marvellous B&B in the heart of Piedmont. The owners are very friendly, and travelled themselves a lot. They can tell you everything to know, from the best wine to taste to the best restaurant in the area (they always try restaurants etc.themselves before advising them to customers). The rooms are very nice, clean and airy. The views from the balcony on the hills are great. Loved it and will return for sure!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Maurizio and Maria's place for 4 days - we actually left them just a few days ago :-( The first thing we loved of this B&B is the location, a calm and green area with a very nice view. Then we met Maurizio and we saw our room; just one word: WOW! Maurizio was very friendly and informative about anything we needed to know on the area, places to visit and restaurants and trattorias where to have a good dinner. Our room - Lavanda - was just lovely...one could really see what love for details is. The last compliment goes for the breakfast: really good food - home-made cakes, possibility to have eggs, etc. - served on the lovely table in the garden.
We enjoyed every minute we have spent there and really hope to be there again soon.

We have held a 2 weeks vacation in Provence and North Italy, and stayed 2 days at Il sole delle rive with Maria and Maurizio and the 2 dogs Tom and Jerry. We came from heat and noice in Provence to nicer temperatures and first of all quitness and beatyful landscapes in Piemonte. Il Sole delle Rive is a lovely place, recently renewed with respect for the old buildings. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the landscape. Maurizio is an excellent guide and planned a nice tour for us the next day, where we saw the old towns and a vineyard in the Barolo district. In late afternoon we took a 1 hours walk, were Jerry was a perfect guide. He new exactly which way to go through the woods and we think he enjoyed it as much as we did. After we reached our next stop at the Como lake, we found out, that we forgot a small purse of jewellery, which Maurizio later send to us, thank you very much for that. We would love to come back.

We are two wine lovers and decided visit pidemont for wine study.
We found "Il Sole delle Rive B&B" at the internet (searching places at pidemont) and viewd some photo's prior our visit.
The reality was much more beauty and the hospitality was great, the owners (Maurizio & his wife) were very kind and helped us very much with our travel.
Waking up at the morning to a sound of birds and the river nearby, going down to a nice living room for our tasety breakfast, then plan our daily trip with Maurizio that instruct us directly to the correct places, in addition there are bike to rent - it was great vacation.
The combination between "ALFA GT" and "Il Sole delle Rive" was great

Stayed May 2008
