We had a wonderful stay with Julie & Peter at Casa Fonda. They are excellent hosts, sharing their fabulous property with us and especially their pool.
Their location was an ideal base to get out and visit Turin (caught train from Asti) and Alba, and the Piemonte Region.
It is set in a beautiful hilly landscape that has the UNESCO protection for it's vineyards and wine production techniques, which is really interesting in itself. We certainly enjoyed a few local wines.
If we get back to Northern Italy, we would definitely stay again.
The most beautiful home and garden, surrounded by vines, in a fabulous rural area but close to good-sized towns and just an hour from Turin.
Julie and Peter, the owners, are the perfect hosts; friendly, helpful and welcoming with a wealth of knowledge on local restaurants, wineries, micro breweries, shopping, days out and generally having a wonderful vacation!
We had a wonderful time at Casa Fonda. The guest suite was charming and rustic. Loved having the kitchenette. The views and garden were spectacular. We love wine and exploring so that region of Italy was wonderful. Peter and Julie were great host. Very helpful in giving us information on restaurants and intesting sites to see. Would love to visit again someday.
Our stay at casa fonda was a truly memorable experience. The hosts, Julie and Peter were really hospitable, and gave us a lot of information about local sites, such as vineyards, restaurants and pretty villages. The surroundings are beautiful, and the swimming pool is the perfect place to enjoy it from. The facilities were good, we had out own small kitchen to prepare food too.
Casa Fonda is a hidden gem. The house is huge, full of character and rustic charm. And high on my priority list . . . the beds were not only comfortable but the bed linen superb!
However, it is the garden that had the greatest appeal for me - not only was it beautifully landscaped, especially around the swimming pool, but the plants, herbs, veggies and flowers were magnificent. With outstanding views (vineyards for as far as the eye could see) I was in seventh heaven. Not to be missed!
