This 'maison de charme' is one of those rare gems that can make your entire holiday! The couple who own this auberge really get what it means to exceed expectations at every level and without any of the formality that 5 star hotel chains use to try to achieve the same result.
When we arrived we were offered the choice of THREE rooms - a luxury rarely afforded at any hotel, we didn't even need to go through the check in process (we were kindly asked for our passports the following day) and were immediately escorted to the charming garden where we were offered a complimentary aperitivo (canapes and some of the very passable wine made from their own vineyard). When my husband got a cold, the owner immediately went and got a variety of throat pastels and pills along with honey and then asked about his wellbeing daily. I'm sure my husband's recovery was aided by his discovery of an antique guitar in the corner of the sitting room which the owners' were happy to lend him during our stay. The design of the rooms and garden is typically italian - sophisticated and comfortable - like the couple who own it. On our final evening, we were invited for a grappa and asked for our feedback on the hotel/town - no 'we value your opinion' forms to fill in here! When we left at 6am (breakfast is from 8) we found cappucinos ready to be prepared, honey, cake and a selection of biscuits to take on our 3 hour drive along with a charming 'goodbye note'. We'll be sure to check out their b+b in Turin next!
