Il Sole delle Rive B&B
Ranked #4 of 9 Sinio B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 25, 2011

Maurizio & Maria are great hosts who have created a very special, peaceful place away from all the hassle. The breakfast was served in the garden under a pergola with a really nice view over the landscape. Maurizio is great in giving hints and tips regarding what to do or where to go to enjoy e.g. a delicious dinner. Thanks again for the warm hospitality!

On our recent 23-day trip to Northern Italy we mixed our stays between being out in the country and in towns. For those who would like to base themselves in the Piemonte countryside, I highly recommend Il Sole delle Rive and hosts Maurizio and Maria. Good, central location to Barolo and other wine regions. Easy drive into Alba. Maurizio made sure we had all our questions answered and recommended a very nice hike that began and ended right there at the B&B. Beautiful room with balcony. Didn't want to leave!

We spent 5 days with Maurizio and Maria at Il Sole delle Rive and can only say positive things about our stay. Il Sole delle Rive is conveniently located in the area of many interesting castles and vineyards in the heart of the Piedmont wine country. The house has been lovingly restored by this couple and is tastefully decorated and very clean! Our breakfasts were very tasty - most of the food was homemade and of excellent quality. Maurizio gets 5 stars for his hospitality and help. He had many ideas for excursions and even lent us some equipment for a spontaneous hike through the region. We especially enjoyed the interesting conversations and cultural exchange with the owners. Last but not least is the beautiful German Shepherd, Tommy, who kept us company throughout our stay.

Maurizio could not have been more helpful in advising us where to visit nearby. There is plenty to see and do from this tranquil spot. Good bedroom with balcony and view. On Maurizio's recommendation we eat one evening in a family run restaurant that produced one of the best value meals we've had in Italy (must book in advance). A lovely spot to stay. Our only suggestion for change would be to have no extra costs for some breakfast items, otherwise everything else was just right.

Maria & Maurizio were the best hosts we have ever had at a B&B. They welcomed us with open arms to their charming B&B, set on top of a hill with gorgeous views of the Piedmont countryside. Their location is very convenient to all of the Piedmont towns and my husband and I truly enjoyed traveling around experiencing the different towns they recommended. Maurizio also provided us with fabulous restaurant recommendations...we had the best food during our stay.

My husband and I are at the start of our month-long tour of Italy and have decided to take each day as they come and not book ahead. The day before our visit to the Langhe region we were lucky enough to find Il Solo delle Rive B&B by complete chance and have to stay that this has so far been the highlight of our trip. We travel a lot and have stayed in many great places around the world and this is definitely up there on our list. In fact, this is the first ever review that we right because we loved it so much.

The B&B is located on a beautiful location near many stunning little villages on this gorgeous Italian wine region and the owners, Maurizio and Maria, are so friendly and enthusiastic about the area and recommended some great itineraries. They also booked us a great little restaurant that was just fantastic, at the hill top overlooking the vineyards with gorgeous food and wine made in their premises. The room was also very comfortable.

Il Solo was more than just a place to sleep, the stunning setting and the friendliness and willingness to help of the owners really made our stay extra special. All in all this is a fantastic place and we were very sad to leave and wish we stayed longer! I will have to plan a come back visit for sure!

Since we first arrived at Il Sole delle Rive, we felt we were in a place where we could stay in peace. The atmosphere was serene and open, as you could clearly read in the faces of Maurizio and his wife. We found a special welcome here, a sincere feeling of sharing and generosity. The house and the room were immaculate, also thanks to the nice, funny rule to remove your shoes as you enter inside. This was much appreciated by us, and made us feel still more "at home"! Breakfast is really good, and it's pleasant to spend some time talking to the owners, that will help you gladly in everything you should need. Maurizio is a talented photographer and a real traveller, and he can show you the beautiful pictures he took not only in this beautiful Piemonte land, but in the whole world. We'll sure come back soon.
