I have stayed at Casa Lia Sole twice now and I am certain I will be back again. The location is dreamily stunning, up a long winding road (and then track) to a hill top vineyard with the most wonderful ever-changing views. The house itself has a lovely rustic feel and a wonderful farm house kitchen.

The living areas are cosy for nestling in on cooler nights and there’s a lovely outside area for alfresco dining (which is what we did most of the time). The pool is a good size for playing and swimming and has great views. We had loads of fun making pizza with the kids using the amazing outside oven and if we weren’t happy enough at the house with the pool and games on offer (and let’s not forget the very nice wine!), then we found there was plenty to do in the area.

Acqui is a delightful local town and together with nearby villages there are lots of fantastic restaurants and cafe’s catering it seems to the discerning Italian visitor rather than mass tourist market, so really good food. We stumbled into a lovely little food festival in a local village too. All in all, highly recommend Casa Lia Sole for any length of stay.
