Welcome to Villetta Sampaguita rental apartments
located in the Roero wine hills of Piedmont.
After 18 wonderful years of operating
a B&B and farm with hundreds of satisfied guests, Rina and Tim
have downsized. We have sold the old Villa Sampaguita and moved
to a smaller house in the charming village of San Pietro, overlooking
the historic royal castle of Govone, surrounded by vineyards and
with panoramic views of the Tanaro river valley, the Langhe and
Monferrato wine hills and the Alps.
Villetta Sampaguita is halfway
between the historic towns of Asti and Alba; 15 minutes drive in
either direction and there is an hourly bus service for those who
prefer not to rent a car. Turin is 45 minutes drive; Milan and Genoa
are both one hour away. We can arrange a pickup from any of the
airports (Milan, Turin or Genoa) or from Asti train station.
Villetta Sampaguita has two
comfortable apartment suites, both self contained with kitchen and
living room, available for short and long term rental. Of course
guests can opt to have breakfast too. We are open all year round
with both heating and air-conditioning for guest comfort. (RENTAL
Rina will be conducting cooking
classes on a regular schedule for smaller groups of up to 6 people
in her new custom made kitchen, continuing on from our old agriturismo.
The famous wine areas of Barbaresco
and Barolo are a short drive from us, we will continue to offer
tours either self drive or with a car and English speaking driver
if you like to sample the wines without having to drive. (TOURS)
The Roero is one of central
Piedmont’s main wine areas although not as well known as the
Monferrato and Langhe, therefore less tourists and better values.
The area is also famous for peaches and honey. The gently rolling
hills are ideal for hiking and biking and we have e-bikes available
for rent to those who need a little boost (CYCLING).
Piedmont is also famous for
its cuisine and there are many fabulous restaurants in our area
as well as Asti and Alba. There is an albergo in walking distance
with a swimming pool/spa available on a daily basis and several
restaurants in the nearby towns of Govone and Priocca. The nearest
weekly food markets are in Canale and San Damiano and of course,
there are many truffle fairs in season. Govone Castle hosts several
musical and art events each year and is known for its annual Christmas
Benvenuti from your hosts
