Best B&B we have ever stayed at
Some places are as much about the people as about the place. Cascina Gallo Orsi is one of them. Canan and Umberto are the most gracious, kind hearted hosts we have ever had the pleasure of staying with. The house is just beautiful, warm and comfortable. It has been lovingly restored into a delightful home. The photos do not do it justice. Lovely comfy bed, delicious food and every bit of local advice you could ever need. You MUST stay here if travelling in Piedmonte. I wish there were more than 5 stars.

Piedmontese-Turkish hospitality and cuisine at its best!
My partner and I spent 5 days last august at this lovely bed and breakfast. We had a fabulous time. We were welcomed with yummy homemade jam, cookies and a delicious Turkish tea. The breakfast was simply amazing. Every detail was thought of! Canan and Umberto were such gracious hosts, and were so well informed to activities, restaurants and wine producers in the area...and if you are bored of the countryside, Milan, Turin or the beautiful beaches of Liguria or the French Riviera are within a couple of hours drive. Best breakfast we have ever had at a b&b; in an exquisite dining room. Freshly renovated property with a wonderful view at 360 over hills and vineyards. We were assigned a huge and quiet room overlooking the garden and beautifully decorated. Wonderful experience chatting with our hosts in a gorgeous countryside setting. We could not have asked for more. I guess it's time to come back for another Turkish tea!
