I came to this villa for a week in July this year. The owner is a very kind lady who cooks amazing food upon request, and is very knowledgeable about the local area (places to eat, drink, shop, sights etc). The location is hidden away in the beautiful hills near the small town of Nizza Monferrato. There is a pool and tennis court, and a nice big garden to enjoy.
You can drive 1 or so hours to get to the sea near Genova and the small beautiful port of Portofino. Driving in the other direction about 1 1/2 hours you will reach Milan which is also a beautiful city.
I would highly recommend this villa - well worth a stay!
