Fodor's Review

It would be hard to imagine a more commanding position for these simply but tastefully decorated accommodations above Alba. Ten minutes outside town, the inn sits on the top of a langa (one of hills that form the Langhe region) surrounded by vineyards. Old prints, wooden furniture, and country-style patterned fabrics enliven the rooms, but the place to unwind is the upstairs lounge, with panoramic windows and a fireplace.
