    La Vite Rossa, Historic Centre of Alba

    Adults-only apartments in Alba
    This comfortable apartment is located right in the historical centre of Alba, 30 metres from Piazza Duomo, near Alba's market, restaurants, wine bars, and shops. We are from a family-owned winery in La Morra and we look forward to welcoming you to our apartment. We speak Italian, English and Russian, and are happy to help you with anything you might need. Free parking and the Alba train station are available a short walk away. Price excludes city tourist tax of €1.50 per person per night. The apartment is situated in the heart of Alba - you can't get more central than this - in a quiet street just steps away from the Alba market, bars, restaurants and shops. We are around the corner from the tourist office and situated on the doorstep of Alba's Michelin-star restaurant, Piazza Duomo. Alba is the perfect spot to visit the surrounding Langhe region, famous for the Unesco areas of Barolo and Barbaresco wine, attend the Collisioni festival in Barolo, jazz in Monforte, or Alba's international white truffle festival. Hire a car or Vespa, get on board an e-Bike, see the Langhe area, its beautiful hills and vineyards, and enjoy the best Alba has to offer for restaurant choice, shops and wine bars. We are in the pedestrian area of the city, where you can enjoy our central location to get around the town of Alba on foot. There is free public parking in the vicinity (marked with white lines) and plenty of parking for a fee in Alba (marked in blue lines). We are a 10-min walk from the train station (which also has covered parking in a secure carpark available for a fee), and not far from the green line shuttle bus service of Alba. It's a great place from which to explore the surrounding Langhe hills, while returning each evening in walking distance from a wide choice of restaurants and bars. You are just a short drive from world-famous towns like Barolo, La Morra, Barbaresco, Diano d'Alba, Neive and everywhere in between. Alternatively you could make use of one of the local buses available in order to taste Barolo and Barbaresco to your heart's content, without worrying about driving. If you're feeling adventurous, Vespa hire is available locally and the area is one of Italy's most famous for great cycling. We will also be available to advise on transport options, the best panoramic spots in the area, or even some of the best riding roads in the Langhe. The apartment is located on the first floor, stair access only, and features: - wifi - bedroom with a double bed; - bathroom with shower and washing machine; - fully equipped kitchen including microwave and electric kettle; - living space in the kitchen area with television; - small fold-down sofa bed good for children; - additional crib for babies/toddlers available on request; - small balcony as front-door access to the apartment; - free parking in Alba available a short walk away; - parking for a fee located close to the apartment The apartment is in a historic block in the centre of Alba.

    5/5 Excellent

      Lovely apartment ideally located

      This apartment is in historic Alba, literally around the corner from Duomo di San Lorenzo. It is also only a 5 minute walk to free parking outside the historical city center. We could easily use our car to explore nearby towns, just as easily explore the city of Alba on foot. Small shops for fruit and vegetables, meat and cheese or bread are within a 5 minute walk, and a supermarket a 10 minute walk. Don’t miss the fresh pasta shop! The manager met us right on time to check in, and answered any questions promptly via text. The kitchen is small with basic utensils, yet we were able to prepare many meals easily. An excellent rental!

      5/5 Excellent

      Für 1 Woche war diese kleine Wohnung unser Zuhause und wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Im 1. Stock über den Balkon im Innenhof gelangt man zu den Räumen! Der Besitzer war über Telefon erreichbar, sofort vor Ort , zeigte uns überaus freundlich alles und gab uns gute Tips! Besonders freuten wir uns über die Flasche Wein von hauseigenen Weingut und auch darüber, dass jemand für uns etwas eingekauft hatte ! ( Milch , Joghurt etc Danke ) Die Lage der Wohnung ist sehr zentral , mitten im historischen Zentrum! Bisschen wie Leben in Italien!
