“Exceptional service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

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!

Room Tip: Rooms leading onto the garden are convenient as also next to pool

My husband and I stayed at “ le due Matote” just for 1 night -end of July - but our experience has been absolutely nice.
There are at least two reasons for which I strongly recommend it : atmosphere and service.
The house ( dated 18th century) has been carefully restored maintaining the feeling of the past combined with contemporary facilities: old beams, wooden floors, thick walls and antique furniture make you feel the old times . Our room was absolutely beautiful : quite large with a cosy sitting area where was a well furnished library with interesting books , the bed was very comfortable and we slept with the quilt because even though the outside temperature was quite hot , the room was pleasantly cool.- I especially liked the idea of the washbasin in the room -.
After arriving the landlady arranged us for a sauna ( for which we were given flip flops, bathrobes ,oils and creams to apply on the skin ) : the sauna area overlooks the garden and
the swimming pool .

Remarkable is the attention to details. Toiletries in the room are of high quality.
In the garden ,what probably was a fern hill has been converted into a rustic room with complimentary cold drinks and fruit ; here you can find an amazing choice of straw hats (all different) you can wear while lying on the deckchairs as well as a choice of sun creams.

At around seven, the tables in the garden were laid for an aperitif with local wine and very good homemade local appetizers : we loved it !- we couldn’t “afford” tea with homemade cakes at around 5!!.
The same care is given to breakfast which is served in a lovely room : fresh food , local cheeses and biscuits, bio products….
The owners and Gabriela were very nice : helpful and always smiling: a really relaxing place to enjoy!

It's typically the kind of address you may keep for yourself... This old house is beautiful, rooms are all different and charming. Gabriela and the owners are very nice, friendly, helpful persons always looking to make your stay unforgetable. It's one of the best B&B I ever experienced and a service I lamost never had in Italy so far. Bossolasco is not the nicest village in the Langhe but who cares, take your car and drive around ... it's at least not the most touristic/crowed ones. Finally, you can trust Gabriela for the restaurants and for the sight tours. Breakfast and aperitif are also very good.

We loved our two day stay here in late May. Originally we only planned on staying 1 day but extended after experiencing the hotel and staff. The owners Andrea and Constance aided by their fully capable assistant Gabrielle were most kind and gracious and could not have been more helpful. Constance insisted on giving us her personal cell phone number when we needed translation skills trying to find ancestors in a nearby village. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable, with a view towards the valley. Breakfast was whatever we wanted and Gabrille delighted us with homemade cakes each morning. The restaurant recommendations were absolutely fantastic and exactly what we were looking for, local cuisine with hands-on owners, served by family members. I absolutely recommend you stay here if visiting this region of Italy. MickeyIcecream

Room Tip: They have a sauna very near the outside pool and after a long day visiting the area is a perfect way...

Our staying in Le Due Matote has been marvellous. Unfortunately we were on our way to South of Italy and we could only stay one night but it was worth it. The old house has been restructured with great concern to keep the original flavour and a warm atmosphere. I must say that the owners have done a superior job. My wife and I slept very comfortably in one of the rooms where bathroom and facilities were completely functional. In the morning we were delighted with an incredible breakfast.

Our only regret is that we had to leave.

I could only stay the week end there and that wasn't long enough! I just loved the marvellous cosyness of this charming house, the perfect taste of the decoration and the gracious hospitality. I didn't know this part of italia before and it was great to discover this wine country, the lovely old villages and try the delicious wines ... In short, a highly recommendable address.
