fantastic little B&B


“The Il Convento is no place for people who seek the anonym sensation of a huge hotel complex – what normally isn’t the case if someone decides to visit the region of Piemont. Right from the start you get the feeling of being part of a small family consisting of Dominique and Catherine (the owners), 4 dogs, 8 cats, a donkey and a horse :-) The Il Convento, as you might have already guessed is a former small convent which was restored and made into this fantastic little B&B. The three rooms are normally booked rather quickly, so you shouldn’t wait too long if there is a free one. The standard room is quite cosy regarding the space, but for a couple in love just perfect – but if you need more space you should book one of the bigger superior rooms. The standard room we had was perfectly clean and modern with a nice little bathroom. We also could use the big living room, the winter garden, the pool and the terrace. What makes the Il Convento a secret gem, is the service you get. The breakfast is really rich with a lot of different little things Chaterine is preparing every day. Small quiches and cakes, bacon and eggs, fresh seasonal fruits, bread and different jams – not the standard buffet you normally get in other places. In fact the breakfast was so excellent, that there actually was no need for a lunch. Even a lactose-intolerance was no matter and Catherine made a small list of things we could not eat and these things weren’t offererd anymore – great! It was also the smaller things like an ice-cold coke with fresh lemon brought directly to the pool or the small chocolates on our prepared bed when we came back from our trips which just made our stay even more perfect. We made the experience that if you follow the recommendations of the two hosts, you’ll find places in the area of Asti that you surely would not find if you were on your own.”
