We spent a long week end here and it has been a great and relaxing experience.. it has been really touching the kindness, warm welcome and hospitality of the owners Mike and Zoe..they are exceptional in making feel you at home, spending pleasant and funny time together, preparing delicious breakfast with passion and particular attention to details and with products from their garden! Also the room was really clean and nice...thank you from the heart to Mike and Zoe and hope to come back soon :)
We had the most fantastic experience in Niella Belbo with Michael and Zohreh at their luxury B&B, Cascina Belbo. This was our first time to Italy and they couldn't have made it more enjoyable. After a long flight it was great to be welcomed into their beautiful, modern and updated farmhouse that was immaculately clean. The rooms are very spacious, beds extremely comfortable and the bathrooms are great. Each morning, they started our day with an exceptional farm-to-table style breakfast with the freshest of ingredients and superb presentation. Their knowledge of things to do and places to see were limitless. We had the opportunity to visit many local villages, lakes, farms, cantinas (wineries) and historical sites. Micheal and Zohreh also provided us with guided excursions that allowed us to be immersed into true Italian culture, from cafes to authentic trattoria's and even a traditional picnic lunch. All of this made our experience truly memorable and we look forward to returning in the near future!…
Had never such a wonderfull stay. Very nice and warm welcome by Zoreh and Michael, great Breakfast (even the best i`ve ever had, I guess) and clean, nice and luxury Rooms. We arived with 5 Motorcicles, completely wet and dirty and found a warm welcome, space for motorcycles and wet clothing. Interesting other guests, wine and wonderfull hazelnuts completed this beautyfull experiance.
A relaxing stay in a very unique and luxury B&B which captured all of our expectations. The ambience here is just wonderful and with hosts Mike and Zoreh, our stay was above our expectations. They anticipated all of our needs and more. The local area is picturesque, with the village just a short walk away. The bike ride throughout the region was stunning... we were going to areas that only the locals usually know. For a foodie... we got to taste a variety of their local cuisine of which both Mike and Zoreh are passionate about. Its your home away from home and looked after like old friends.
Cascina Belbo is a super fine place to stay, great surroundings, lovely countryside, rooms are "de luxe" with a great bed and an ensuite bathrooms and a decadent breakfast, thanks to Zohreh skills in the kitchen (even if Mike is making a good try at helping! sorry Mike, couldn't resist...). In short its a beautiful place with beautiful people who will make you feel genuinely very special, don't hesitate, go for it! as for us, we will be back next year... :-)
So the legend was true ! Yes we found the place and it was much more than expected.Lord and Lady of the castle ( Zohreh and Mike) a multitalented duo in every respect not only catered for our needs with humor , courtesy and efficiency in this luxurious B&B , but were our leaders to the nearby village attractions ,winery explorations and local festivities that they know so well including the locals themselves ! Unfortunately we were not fully prepared for the jewel of the crown , namely the Harley Davidson tours up to the French boarders with the exceptional HD engines that Mike ( a very experienced rider himself ) that are hidden there but we will most probably do that next time when the ladies will have their cooking lessons following Zohreh's talent! Thank you , we will be back very soon.....…
We stayed for one night and wish we stayed longer. The host are truly amazing, welcoming and there's nothing they won't do. The view from anywhere on the property is breathtaking and to die for. The rooms are amazing and couldn't ask for anything more. The food was amazing that we were given and endless. It is truly well worth the visit and also worth staying a few days and not just one or two.
Mike and Zohreh make everyone feel welcome and part of the family. The food is wonderful with such an array of home cooked dishes from around the world made with fresh ingredients is such a delight. The accommodation is very stylish and completed to a very high standard far more than one would expect. The area is such a wonder to behold, very peaceful and tranquil it gives one time to 'breathe' an enjoy life and unwind. Mike's knowledge of the surrounding area (and vineyards) is great and the whole experience just makes you understand what taking a vacation is all about and why you need to come back here. It is true, you arrive as strangers and leave as life long friends. A must for everyone.
I've been there for 4 days. It was beautiful and amazing. The owners were so welcoming and sweat. The best ever. Rooms are so beautiful and luxury and bathroom is clean also. Breakfast was so good, amazing actually. Most of the ingredients are fresh and natural and they taste great. You actually can feel the difference. I strongly recommend to have some hazelnuts with your breakfast. They are so delicious and owners grow them. The landscape is amazing there. Pure and beautiful. The environment is peaceful. Best place to spend a weekend if you want to get away from traffic and pollution of the big cities. Make sure to visit the vineries nearby. They are gorgeous. Finally, most welcoming and best host ever.
We came to Cascina Belbo for a weeks Riding Harley Davidson motor cycles and the wonderful hospitality of owners, Mike and Zohreh Bastow. We rode the country roads and twisties even one day going up to the French boarder way up (2000m) in the Maritime Alps and then ending up on the Italian coast. The food Zohreh cooked was second to none and the restaurants in the area were outstanding serving Traditional piemontese food accompanied by excellent local wines All in all a excellent holiday destination made even nicer by our excellent hosts .
