    Fully-renovated Farmhouse With Pool Among the Barolo Vines

    Family-friendly vacation home in Novello with outdoor tennis court

      dream vacations do come true

      The property is so perfect. We were 4 families with kids and enjoyed every moment of our trip. Allegra was super helpful in connecting us to childcare and pointing us in the right direction for wine. I would totally recommend staying here and I will for sure be back!

      5/5 Excellent

        Fantastic Villa Getaway

        We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful location, nor a more enjoyable place to spend a week with friends. Villa Ribota offers spacious rooms, new bathrooms, a refreshing pool and magnificent views. The outdoor gathering space was our favorite place to spend our time and we enjoyed having a kitchen and grill for those times we cooked for ourselves. Richard and Allegra's hospitality in setting up wine tasting, Vespas and electric bikes as well as arranging for chef services was an added bonus. We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Villa Ribota and hope to return to this treasure of a spot in Italy someday soon.

        5/5 Excellent

          Fabulous Property!

          What's not to love about a fabulous property nestled amongst the Barolo vineyards with jaw dropping views, a pool, and an impeccably decorated and immaculate home with owners who are so charming, welcoming and helpful? We just spent an amazing week at Villa Ribota thanks to Alegra, Richard and little Bea for making it so. They were so helpful arranging wine tastings, dinner reservations and cooking classes. All of which we enjoyed immensely and certainly wouldn't have found if left to our own devices! We are all looking forward to a return trip very soon.

            Pefect and peaceful getaway

            Had a the most wonderful weekend at Villa Ribota! Rich and Allegra had some amazing contacts so we were able to do several wine tastings and explore the region more efficiently. One of the wines was so great that we even chose to ship some home for our upcoming wedding. The villa itself was spectacular! The trip that much easier by having a full kitchen and a grocery store just a short ride away. We shared the space with three other couples and there was more than enough privacy for everyone. Being American and speaking a minimal amount of Italian, it was easy to work through the booking process and sleeping arrangements prior to our arrival.

            5/5 Excellent


              Wow, what a stunning find! Villa Ribota is a beautifully restored Langhe farmhouse in the wine region of Piedmonte. The house itself is spacious, but homely with all the mod cons and home comforts. Each room is unique and uncluttered. Bathrooms are high spec and most rooms have big French Windows which overlook the vineyards. The pool is lovely and there's a great patio for outdoor dining. The hosts Rich and Allegra are very willing to help out with anything from matters to do with the house, or advice on the area. Both speak Italian which helps enormously for booking things! The area itself is perfect if you're adventurous or just fancy a relaxing holiday. We cycled and walked in the area and visited several very friendly vineyards. There is skiing nearby too in the winter and a golf course on the doorstep. You will need scar to get yourself about, but even then several villages are within walking/ cycling distance. A real gem of a place to stay and highly recommended!
