“Excellent Location, Room and Host”
Reviewed 15 July 2010

Casa Ressia was our Alba "home" for 5 nights in July. Alessandro, the young, enthusiastic and incredibly helpful host (his English is great!), made so many great suggestions and then followed up with all the reservations we needed for wine tasting and meals. There are a number of superb restaurants within 5 miles and you are right in the middle of the Alba, Barbaresco and Barolo wine region. He also serves a delicious breakfast that includes home made cakes, eggs, meats, cheeses, yogurts, spreads, breads...etc. His offer of grappa each night was also a pleasant treat...We loved how clean and large and modern our room was, and the sitting areas outside were incredibly comfortable. A great place, highly recommended to relax and enjoy this marvelous section of Italy!

We just returned from a two night (much too short) stay at Cassa Ressia. This is a traditional italian family home where the reception is so warm you feel at home immediately. We loved the room - simple, quiet and immaculate. Linens were what you would expect in an italian home. The highlight was meeting Alessandro along with his father and sister. Alessandro cannot do enough to make you feel welcome in the Langue region. The breakfast was continental style and abundant with good quality italian specialties. If you're looking for a simple, clean, quiet, reasonably priced place to stay, this is it. We loved it and we plan to return next year.

First, the place. The agriturismo itself is a large, two storey house that is full of character. It is spotlessly clean, and very beautifully and tastefully furnished. We had come intending to spend one night, but ended up spending four nights.

Secondly, location. Casa Ressia is located one hill away from Alba (very near if you are driving). We came by bicycle, and were very gratified to find that Casa Ressia placed us within return-trip cycling distance of Barbaresco, Treiso and Neive (to name a few towns). Whether this works for you will depend a lot on what kind of trip you are intending. It was quite perfect for us. We had a lot of fun cycling up hills (towns like Barbaresco, Treiso and Neive tend to be situated at the crests if ridges or on top of hills), arriving at our destination town and walking into some amazing restaurant for dinner (the food everywhere here is excellent), eating until near midnight, and finally getting back onto our bikes for a peddle-free downhill cruise back to the agriturismo.

Alessandro and his family are amazing hosts. They are warm, well-informed, helpful, and generous. Each day we would cycle back to the agriturismo at some unpardonably late hour (usually after an amazing meal at a restaurant one town away), only to find Alessandro or his father waiting for us with some nice wine or grappa to help warm us up. The next morning, we would wake up to a generous spread, and have a wonderful chat with Alessandro while enjoying our breakfast.

When it was time to leave, we did not want to leave. If we were to be back in the area, we would stay at Casa Ressia again without hesitation.

We spent a long weekend in Casa Ressia and used it as a base to explore the surroundings, where we spent a lot of time in fantastic restaurants and also as a highlight went on a truffel-hunt expedition. Alessandro and his father were great hosts. They provided us with information about the area. The breakfast buffet was something to look forward to every day! The rooms were renovated and had style and the beds were very comfortable.

We will come back!

Alessandro gave up his engineering training to take over the guesthouse from his deceased charming mother and he he is adding his personality, linguistic ability and development ambition to her tourist knowledge and books, excellent breakfasts with home baking, generosity of spirit (and wine) and well furnished large bedrooms/mini-apartments. Just outside interesting, busy Alba & surrounded by lovely hills and vineyards, this is a great resting place for couples notr seeking night-life [other than good trattorias osterias & restaurants!]

We stayed at Casa Ressia by chance and we think it was the luckiest surprise! We were greeted so warmly on our arrival and shown to a most comfortable room where we were made totally at home. Alessandro was the greatest host you could ask for: nearby when you might need his advice, but allowing you the privacy to soak up the atmosphere without interuption unless wanted. His guidance on where to go was invaluable and we couldn't manage all the places in the short time we had in Alba, but the good news is that we MUST come back for more which will be a total pleasure!
Our thanks to the whole Beccaris family for making our stay so memorable!
