I echo Simon's words and have amazing memories of our wonderful stay at Ilda's wonderful property. Ilda and Carlos made us exceptionally welcome. The apartment is well appointed and met our every need. The countryside is breathtaking and we discovered many beautiful churches in the surrounding villages and towns. Wines and cheeses of the region were consumed in great quantities!
We had a wonderful stay here in Cocconato for one week, but could have spent a month with the wonderful Ilda and Carlo. They offered us not only fruit and vegetables from their gardens and orchards (all organically grown) but also discrete friendship - always ready to answer a question, but also ready to step back and let us explore the village and region The village is one of the most lively in the area, and the central Caffe/Bar is a magnetic for locals and visitors alike. It's north of Asti, and in a wonderful hilltop location that makes it surprisingly easy to drive NSE&W, We bought lots of wine from one of the local makers, Luigi Dezzani, who gave us a great introduction to varieties of wine that mostly don't make it to England. The property is well appointed and equipped and all windows have insect guards, which are very useful indeed. The bedrooms are well proportioned and there are two modern bathrooms. Outside, but part of the apartment, is a terrazo with spectacular views across the valley, that was ideal for breakfast and early evening drinks/reading. There's a lot more we could say, but you won't be disappointed if you come to stay here!!
