An old fashioned Italian Welcome

Location Less than an hour from Turin by car, and very easy to find, at the end of the village of Treville, this beautiful XVIII century B+B has stunning views of the Alps and surrounding countryside. The accommodation A mixture of accommodation is available, both B+B and self catering, at very competitive rates. We stayed in a double room with bathroom facilities next door, but there is a range of rooms available to take care of families and other combinations of guests. There is even a large party room which can be hired. Simply furnished in traditional Italian style, the beds were comfortable, and the rooms were spotlessly clean.

We wanted for nothing - tea facilities, hairdryer, electrical points, etc., were all on hand. The large terrace at the front of the property overlooks the most spectacular scenery - woods, valleys and the Alps in the background - a wonderful place to take your breakfast cup of tea to start the day, and I'm sure a complete suntrap in the summer. Nearby attractions A car is a must when you stay in this region. Treville and the little villages nearby are very picturesque and well worth a stroll around. The National Parcs are close by, where you can enjoy the nature of the Area. The capital of the Monferrato region, Casale, is a mere 15mins drive away with all the facilities of a big town and a beautiful paved area with cafes and boutiques to enjoy.

Asti, Acqui Terme and Alessandria are also within easy reach, and with Turin less than an hour away by car and Milan not much more in the other direction,(both are accessible by train from Casale) there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the many attractions surrounding this B+B. However, if you are lost for ideas, ask Paola and Alberto, they have plenty of leaflets and information to share with you. Recommend it? Definitely. Paola is such a welcoming host - she goes out of her way to help you, whatever the question or request, and she so wants you to have a wonderful stay. I would thoroughly recommend Villa Mimma to anyone looking for accommodation in this region. We will most certainly be going back later this year to take in more of the sights and Italian way of life, and we feel that it will be to friends next time round, not just somewhere to stay.
