“Wonderful stay & delightful family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

We stayed here for two nights and had the most amazing time. Marzio and his family are very gracious and warm hosts. The rooms were very nice and comfortable, a superb value! Marzio produces some great quality & delicious wines, which we enjoyed while sitting outside under their loggia. I highly recommend this place! Thank you Marzio & Lucia for such a wonderful visit and for the delicious meal you prepared for us. We look forward to seeing you again our next visit to Costigliole d'Asti!

Pros:

* Very charming and rustic building and rooms. Still very tastefully renovated. You can tell that the renovation was done recently as everything, floor, furniture, shower etc feels brand new. Beds and pillows are comfortable.

* Marzio is a great and humble host with lots of humor. He speaks good English and he did everything in order for stay to be perfect.

* The owners produce and sell their own wine which we found to be absolutely magnificent. If you are a sucker for elegant Barbera red wines, bring a car with an empty trunk. We bought lots and lots of bottles of their Barbera Superiores and some Moscato d'Asti.

* The grounds are simple but nice. There is a large area with grass and sunbeds. The views are also very good. From one side you see miles and miles of vineyards and from the other side you will see the snow capped Alps (on a clear day).

* This is where you go to relax and breathe fresh and clean air. During the day the only sounds we heard were a dog and possibly a rooster. There are only 4 rooms and even in the event the B&B is full it will be a very peaceful place.

* No TVs in the rooms! Yes, we believe this is a good thing. The last thing you want to do in surroundings like these is to watch silly Italian game shows. However there is a lounge area on the bottom floor with a TV just in case...


Cons:

Nothing really, we were very very happy with our stay at B&B La Gibiana. Breakfast was the typical Italian, i.e. bread, butter, jam and sweet cake. We were missing some eggs and cheese. The roads leading to the B&B are a bit narrow. Also, without GPS you will have difficulties finding this place.


All in all, we strongly recommend that you visit this place if you're going to the Alba region. It's just a 20 minute drive to all the nice villages of La Morra, Barolo and Serralunga and staying here is cheaper than in the forementioned villages. Also, I doubt you will find many places that are so welcoming and charming like this one.
