My wife and I spent an unforgettable 2 months in Andrea's apartment in Trisobbio. It was an absolute pleasure to meet two wonderful people, our host Andrea and his dear mum Emma who provided us with many wonderful goodies including her famous and delicious apple torta. You could not meet two more hospitable and kind people. We had the apartment in the middle level ( second floor). The stairs were no problem at all. For a longer stay we would recommend this apartment. It is well equipped, very spacious, spotlessly clean and has wonderful views. The village of Trisobbio is a gem. It is a small village but with loads of character and lovely people. If you want to experience the real Italy then Trisobbio is the place for you. It is close to dozens of equally qqquaint hilltop villages that are within a 15 km radius. But a car is essential. We frequented Ovada for our big shopping . Bennet is the place to go. It has everything. Trisobbio has a lovely cafe/bar run by the hard working Gino and there is a lovely bakery which also sells cold meats and some grocery items. The pizzeria run by Cipriano (Torchio Antico) is a must. Superb food and very reasonably priced. In fact we found everything to be reasonably priced in Trisobbio and surrounds. In Ovada the twice weekly markets are a must see and you can buy fresh fruit and vegetables as well as clothing and general items. Near the markets is a family run restaraunt called La Grotta di Barbanera (Via San Sebastiano). It does an amazing 2 course lunch with choices plus contorni (sides) plus wine or water for 10 euro!! We went many times. As mentioned earlier there are many wonderful villages nearby that are worth exploring. Including Acqui Terme, Cremolino, Gavi etc etc. We visited 2 cantinas where you can taste before you buy...for around 3.50 euro a bottle!! There is Tre Castelli or a bit further in Rivolta Bormida. If you have time Genoa is well worth a visit. Also, Torino (a magnificent city) and the Cinque Terre are only 2 hours from Trisobbio. In conclusion, our experience was such that we were very sad to leave after ĺ2 months. A village and a host that we cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you Andrea and Emma for making our stay a memory we shall never forget. We hope to see you in Australia some day. Rob and Yvette

Andrea was easy to communicate with, answer our initial inquiry promptly and got back very quickly when we needed to communicate during our stay. The apartment is very spacious, with nice views onto countryside. It was spotless when we arrived, well-equipped kitchen, comfortable bed and good shower. Andrea's mom greeted us with a cake (nice touch) and even though she speaks no English and we speak very little Italian we had no problem communicating. Wireless was OK -- sometimes not working, sometimes on and off (I doubt that there's anything the host can do about this ... the walls of the building are thick and it's something we've dealt with at other ABnB accommodations in the area). Though this apartment was comfortable I would next time book the Andrea's mansarda apartment upstairs (which I viewed and which is beautifully renovated), because of the noise from upstairs guests for the last half of our stay. Otherwise, I'd book again. It's worth noting that we extended our stay by two days and were happy to do so.

We very much enjoyed our stay in Trisobbio in Andrea's house. We were welcomed with a cake by his mother, everything was as described. We loved staying in a medieval house with Internet and televison. Trisobbio offers lots of choices for activities, the kids enjoyed the neaby public swimming pool with a water slide, we went for hikes to the neighboring villages through fields and vineyards, and went to the beach that is only 45 minutes away by car. Or just enjoy life in a small medieval village with a castle and small streets. You can also use Trisobbio as a base to discover nearby Italian cities: Genoa, Pavia, Acqui Terme. Andrea: Thank you for hosting us! It has been wonderful!

We enjoyed Andrea, and his lovely family very much. They were welcoming, and offered to take care of anything we needed. Andrea's mama makes the best apple torte in the world. The town is well situated for daily trips to other small villages, exploring the Italian Riviera, visiting Genoa, and walking many wooded paths that offer solitude and beauty. Andrea's town, Trisobbio, was our absolute favorite, and all the people there were welcoming and endearing. It has all the amenities a person may want, and the beauty of the entire region is outstanding with much diversity. If you want a genuine Italian experience, rather than a touristic spectacle, this is the region for you. Thank you so much Andrea!! Viva Italia!

Meine Schwiegereltern, die für eine Woche mit uns im Urlaub waren, haben sich wohl gefühlt. Andrea hat uns sehr gut zu Aktivitäten in der Umgebung beraten.

E stato un soggiorno stupendo Siamo stati accolti benissimo dalla mamma e dalla cugina d Andrea con una bellissima torta alle mele e con un grande sorriso. L'appartamento e' esattamente come descritto da Andrea. E' comodo funzionale e pulito. Ci siamo trovati subito a nostro agio. Trisobbio e' un luogo caratteristico, interessante e tranquillo. E ache molto comodo per poter visitare le citta' piu importanti del Piemonte Vicino a Trisobbio si possono acquistare prodotti locali genuini come salumi formaggi e vini direttamente dai produttori. Concludo dicendo che tutto ha funzionato per il meglio grazie alla gentilezza e capacita' organizzativa di Andrea e famiglia
