As the title implies Cascina Giardini is a little difficult to find but that's what makes it so good. It is not on any main road and is in fact 500m from the road going into Alba from the east. There is a little sign pointing up a rather steep drive so don't speed past or you will miss it.
The cascina is very new but it looks like an old farmhouse, the rooms are a nice size with the bathrooms very clean and modern. We managed to look into the apartments (there are 2 or 3 I think) and they also are very nice if you intend to stay a while and cook your own food.
The breakfast room is very open and airy and the selection for breakfast is in keeping with most B and B's in Italy.
Andrea and his mum, Rosa are very friendly and Rosa makes most if not all of the pastries and condiments at breakfast. Plenty of parking is available but beware of the dip on the way up from the main road, it's steep.
Cascina Giardini is in a beautiful location and the views from the rooms of the hills and vineyards makes you really feel that your in your own vineyard.
A car is a must here to get around as the area has some fantastic villages and wineries to visit, Alba is about 7 kilometres away.
It was our first time in Piedmont but we will be back to stay at Cascina Giardini.
