We wanted somewhere with free parking, air-con in the room and ideally a pool, restaurant and wi-fi; Vigneti del Mandorlo ticked all these boxes.
The owners are so kind and attentive, working so hard, over such long hours, to make your stay so enjoyable.
The property was easy to find, with signs at the last key junction and is literally at the side of the the small road it is on.
Plenty of on-site parking space, lovely pool with a mix of sun beds and chairs with shade courtesy of gazebos or umbrellas.
We had a suite which was lovely and clean, probably the largest room and bathroom we’ve ever stayed in and you walk out of patio doors onto a large balcony, with wonderful views. Sunrises and sun sets are beautiful.
As for the food, what can I say? Plenty of choice, plenty of it, beautifully presented. If you have lunch there, you’re not likely to be able to finish the 5 course dinner, so I suggest a very, very light lunch, though you can skip a dinner of course or 2. We did that on Sunday after having lunch there.
Courses (dinner); 1 and 2 are set, choice for 3 (“prima”) and 4 (secondo) and dessert. As said, the owners work so hard to make your stay wonderful, so just say what you want to do.
Whilst the owners no longer make their own wine per se, you can chose wine that contain their grapes (go for the Nemysis red). I think visits to various wineries can be arranged.
You can get all types of drinks/snacks during the day. Breakfast caters for all choices I think; fresh fruit, yogurts, bread, butter, jam, cheese, meats, salamis, cakes and biscuits, plus eggs done your way are offered too. The coffee is so good, but tea is available too.
Great property position as easily reachable from Genoa, Turin and Milan airports. We visited Cinque Terre, Asti, a beach near Finale Ligure and 1 of 2 available water parks (45 mins away).
We were amazed how reasonable the cost was, but the most important thing was the kindliness and attentiveness of the owners and staff.
I definitely didn’t want to leave but definitely want to return.
Thank you for making a wonderful
Holiday for us.
