B&B "il MOLINO" Residenza Storica
Ranked #1 of 10 Govone B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We recently spent 2 nights in Govone with Guido & Raffaella while cycling in the Piemonte area. B&B Il Molino is a charming B&B between Asti and Alba. Raffaella has meticulously and lovingly decorated the place and Guido has restored it to perfection. But more than that, they are the perfect hosts. The welcome aperitif was just fabulous and one of the highlights of our trip! Local cheeses, wine and the home made marmalades, bread, etc. were done to perfection. As I told Raffaella, she should sell them commercially. Our breakfast was the best we had during our stay in Piemonte! Govone is a small, quiet town and conveniently located between the Asti and Langhe regions. Great cycling in the area. I highly recommend Il Molino!

We just returned from Il Molino recently, having spent 3 nights there. Guido, the host, was a lovely warm host, nothing short of what you would exepect from typical Italian hospitality. Breakfast each morning started the day off a nicely, it included home made cakes, breads and jams plus all other cereals etc you would expect. The accommodation is very comfortable, clean and spacious with great views in all rooms. We travelled as three couples and all found our rooms to be excellent, neatly arranged each day again whilst we were out. The location is close to all cities Alba, Asti, Barolo, within an hours drive. It's in the rolling hills of the countryside so the views were really refreshing and a pleasure to the eye.

Guido went out of his to make us feel comfortable and I,m considering taking my parents next year. Thanks for a great holiday!!

Highly recommended!!!!!

This B&B is located in Govone, midway between Asti and Alba. The town of Govone is very small, quiet and charming. The Savoy Palace across the street has a great park surrounding it. The B&B itself is beautifully restored and charming. The room was large and comfortable with an amazing view of the surrounding countryside, including the famous morning fogs needed for the wine. Guido was a charming and very knowledgeable host, and Raffaela was also charming, and an outstanding cook! We had a wonderful time.

Last May my husband and I took our first trip to Italy. We spent 3 glorious weeks touring the regions of Veneto, Tuscany and Piemonte. Piemonte is beautiful and there is so much to see and experience. We were very lucky to book a room at the beautiful Il Molino. Our 4 nights there were fantastic. Guido greeted us with a lovely appertif and a plate of local cheeses and salamis. Breakfasts featured a beautiful table overflowing with delicious homemade cakes,pies and breads as well as fruits, cheeses and yogurt. Raffaella is an amazing cook. Because we were staying an extended time they offered to cook a dinner for us - it was incredible!! Guido will fill you in on places to see, the wineries, and market days. We most certainly would return to this area and B&B - thank you so much Guido and Raffaella for such a memorable time. Oh yes do take in a dinner at the little restaurant around the corner from Il Molino - Trattoria Pautaussi - wonderful menu, delicious food.

I cannot say enough about the amazing experience we had at Il Molino. The owners Guido and Raffaella made us feel more like cherished friends rather than paying guests. We were welcomed on our first night by a lovely apperitif (a lovely local white wine Arneis) paired with local cheese and salumi in front of a fire. Raffaella's food was amazing! Breakfast was a delicious collection of homemade traditional Piemonte cakes, marmalades, and GREAT coffee. The room was also very lovely complete with an amazing view and jetted tub. The inn was also very conveniently located halfway in between Asti and Alba, in a charming little village that was a welcome relief after busy Florence and before Venice. But again, I cannot say enough about the hospitality Guido provided. From making amazing dinner recommendations and arrangements to driving us himself to and from nearby Alba to arranging and joining us on an amazing wine tasting experience with the winemaker. We would not only stay at Il Molino again without hesitation, but we would want to go back just to see our new Italian friends. Our best bed and breakfast experience ever! Grazie Guido and Raffaella!

We recently got back from a two week holiday traveling in italy and this was definitely our favourite stop. This small family run B&B located between Alba and Asti has lovely rooms and serves up the most fantastic apperativos. The B&Bs super chirpy owner Guido will help you with endless personal recommendations for restaurants, wineries and food producers in the area. Guido and his wife Raffaella are the most amazing hosts and we really hope to be back soon. This is a brilliant base from which to explore piemonte.

Ps don't forget to save some space for the fantastic breakfast spread including Raffaella's lovely home made tarts!
