Just 10km from the famous spa town of Acqui Terme, down a quiet country lane you will experience true Italian living amongst the lavender and vineyards. In this tiny hamlet (only 6 families live here), Cottage Lavanda is a quiet and tranquil base to return to after a day of exploration.
The Ligurian coast is just an hour away, the beautiful nature Parco del Beigua, some of Italy’s best golf courses in the region and the busy and historic towns and cities of Asti, Alba, Genoa, Turin and even Milan are just a day trip away.
Cottage Lavanda, a ‘storybook’ stone cottage nestled amongst the lush green flora and fauna has now been lovingly restored to her former glory with beautiful large windows that allow the sunlight to stream through and light up the spacious rooms with their high vaulted brick and timber ceilings. The bedrooms on the first floor are extremely comfortable and the double bedroom offers a truly magnificent view across the valley below.
Acqui Terme is a famous spa town dating back to the Roman Imperial period and a lovely town to spend your day. The Cathedral and Civic Archaeological Museum once the Paleogi Castle is worth visiting during your stay.
It is also one of the principle winemaking areas of the Brachetto d’Acqui, a DOCG wine and there are numerous wine tasting experiences and vineyard tours to choose from in the area.
Indeed this area is said to be the land of wine and truffles with Alba’s rare white truffle, Asti’s sweet sparkling wine, the vineyards of Barolo and Barbaresco, not mentioning the cheeses!
This particular area of Piedmont is noted for its peach orchards, strawberry fields, vineyards and more recently, due to its unpolluted location, the growing of aromatic herbs and lavender. And that tranquil scent of lavender is as fresh as it comes here at the cottage as the owners maintain a two hectare organic lavender field nearby. The harvest takes place in July with the lavender flowers being taken to a local co-operative.
