Location description from owner

The Piedmont region

Piedmont is a geographically diverse region, relatively undiscovered and famous for producing some of the world's finest food and wines. It boasts some of Europe's most stunning landscapes with a multitude of vineyards and rolling hills, interspersed by forests, meandering rivers and fast flowing streams. The property itself is set in a tranquil location, the Bormida River to the side and rear attracting an abundance of wildlife including deer, otters, owls, heron and kingfishers.

Less than an hours drive takes you to the Italian Riviera where one can choose from a selection of chic, cosmopolitan resorts to secluded coves along the Mediterranean coastline.

The region's mountains to the West of Turin provide spectacular settings for many internationally renown ski resorts within two hours drive. For the more casual skier there are several nursery and snowboarding slopes within an hours drive of the property.

Turin is the regional capital and possesses many fine shops and museums of historical interest, which are well worth a visit. Serravalle Designer Outlet near Milan is Europe's largest designer outlet with 180 stores and showcases many Italian brands such as Bulgari, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana and Versace, as well as other major international brands.

For a more relaxing day out, there are several Regional Parks and Nature Reserves within easy reach where you can see the local flora and fauna of this beautiful unspoilt landscape. A two hour drive to the North takes you to some of the most stunning lakes in Europe. These are Lakes Como, Maggiore, Lugano and Orta where one can relax and enjoy the views or partake in many of the water sports on offer.

Mombaldone

This property is located on the edge of the small village of Mombaldone, in the Piedmont region of North West Italy. The villa is easily accessible by road or rail, just half a kilometre from the main Acqui Terme –Savona Road and has a rail station in the village. Visitors can enjoy the countryside, lakes and coast and are in easy reach of the main cities of the region, i.e. Milan, Turin and Genoa. Although Piedmont is world renowned by food and wine connoisseurs it still remains relatively undiscovered by mainstream tourists.

The villa's location, with the Italian Riviera one hour to the south, and skiing one hour to the west, provides a climate of contrasting seasons, with hot Mediterranean summers and snow filled alpine winters. Springtime brings mild days, when the blossoms and fruit trees burst into bloom, whilst autumn provides a blaze of colour and signals the picking of the grapes from the numerous vineyards across the region.

Mombaldone itself is the only village in the Asti region that is still surrounded by its original walls. The entrance to the ancient village is through a Gothic-style entrance door to the shelter, which has been preserved in its original medieval form. The most important monuments converge on Piazza Umberto at the centre of the village and although the 13th century castle is now little more than a ruin ravaged by time, it is also well worth a visit.

In the village there is a post office, shop, rail station and local bar. The local shop is open every day and supplies all the essentials required for a self-catering holiday including freshly baked bread. The train is a useful and practical way to visit the beautiful, small villages along Italian Riviera; tickets can be purchased from the post office. A 5 minute drive or a 20 minute walk takes you to the village of Montechiaro D'Acqui, where there is a bank, ATM, chemist, butcher, baker, garage, bars, and one of the best pizza restaurants in the area.

Local Attractions

Acqui Terme

Only 20 minutes' drive from the villa is the spa town of Acqui Terme. It is steeped in history, yet has designer shops, boutiques, fabulous restaurants and great cafés as well as a hypermarket where you can purchase everything you may require for your stay.

The thermal water comes to the surface in Piazza Bollente, in the centre of town. People come from miles around to bottle the sulphuric scented water from the fountain, which is heated naturally to 75°C, due to its health giving properties.

Acqui Terme also boasts one of the largest outdoor swimming pools in Europe consisting of 3 linked pools, with areas for the very young, and for those that are very brave with 10 metre diving boards!

Vineyards

The Piedmont area is famed around the world for its selection of fine wines. These include Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera, Dolcetto and Moscato D'Asti. Many wine tours take place throughout the region and most distilleries welcome visitors to sample their wines on site and take samples away at competitive prices.

Piedmont's local cuisine is renown throughout Italy, the precious white truffles of this region are a special delicacy, with special truffle markets being held in Alba during the autumn months.

Markets

Antique Markets are well known throughout the region and usually take place on a weekend.

The local food and household markets are still very much a traditional way of life in Italy and a great way to shop:

There are 3 Golf Courses within 1 hours drive of the Villa that welcome visitors

“had a great relaxing week in villa Mombaldone with 4 adults and 5 children”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2015

Ideal villa to relax in and around the pool and to explore rural Italy. The area is not very touristically but has to offer some very beautiful mountain roads, views and villages. But even if you don't want to go anywhere and just want to relax the very well equiped villa offers you everything you could wish for. Many thanks to Carole who was very helpful with all the questions we had. Carole managed to respond to our mails almost immediately. Only minus is the slow WiFi, which seems to be a problem especially in August. Hopefully Carole can solve this issue for future guests.

“Excellent!!”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2013

We were two families traveling With 4 childre fra 2 to 6, and we had a great time. The villa and it's garden were better than expeted. The swimmingpool were perfect for all of us. The closed garden were well suited for small childeren, they can run around and like crazy:) And the owner helped us in a second when we contacted them. We had two perfect week's in Villa Mombaldone:)

Owner's reply: So pleased that you had such a good time.

“Great villa with super swimming pool”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2012

We just returned from a week in the villa, in the beginning of July. We were two families with a small child each. Our daughter (aged 5) in particular absolutely LOVED the swimming pool which had clean warm water and a beautiful view of the Piemonte countryside around, including the little vineyard that is part of the garden. Every day, my husband and daughter spent one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening in the pool, playing, and could have spent more time in it - if we hadn't done sightseeing. The area is beautiful, in a small valley with hills around. There are some pretty villages and plenty of vineyards in the vicinity. If you are willing to spend extra time in the car (1-2 hours each way), you can do a lot more: from the larger cities of Turin or Genova to the mid-sized towns of Asti and Alba, to the Ligurian coast (Noli, Finale Ligure, San Remo) or the Alps. The villa is spacious and very nice, well equipped with everything (ie washing machine etc). It has a huge beautiful garden, we had breakfast and dinner outside almost every day. We even saw fireflies glowing in the evenings! The owner Carole, was extremely helpful, with some more special needs we had and always responded quickly to our queries. We can recommend it highly!

“Fabulous area and villa”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2011

The villa is spacious and very well equipped - everything you need for a wonderfully relaxing holiday is there. The pool is a great size and both the village of Mombaldone and the nearby town of Acqui Terme are well worth visiting. Highly recommended.
