    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
    Stunning open-space attic in the historic center of Alba. Newly renovated apartment with spacious lounge and kitchen, and separate bedroom in the 13th century tower room. Access to the higher tower floors, a series of small rooms and a terrace with a view over the old rooftops and the Duomo, a unique feature of this house. Apartment is on the top fourth floor, with elevator up to the third floor. The house is located in Alba's main central square, an area always lively and full of things to enjoy: restaurants, bars and shops are within a few steps, truffle market is 100 mt away. Groceries and supermarkets are at close walking distance and there is farmer's market on Tue, Thr and Saturday morning. The area is traffic-free and quiet at night.
