“Nous avons passé une agréable semaine dans la maison de sally .. c est un endroit charmant et authentique, loindes chemins touristiques. La maison est en bel état et parfaite pour 4 personnes. Idéal pour des vacances au calme Très bon contact avec sally merci ”
“Sally was a wonderful communicator throughout the process. The location was great for day trips from vineyards, to the Alps or to a 900 year old Monastery. Everything was clean and ready for our arrival. A fun family trip! Thank you, Sally. ”
“We had a fabulous week’s stay in Sally’s home, Casa Fontana. It is even more beautiful than the pictures show and is superbly equipped with everything one can need for a lovely stay – brand new kitchen, bathrooms, lovely bedrooms etc. Everything was wonderfully clean. The views from the house over the valley are superb, and we much enjoyed having meals on the patio. Watching the sun go down as we supped was particularly special, as was breakfasting in the cool of the day. The house is very well positioned for exploring the nearby beautiful river valleys, as well as getting up into the mountains. We had a great time visiting the very attractive small towns and villages which Sally mentions in her notes. We particularly liked Saluzzo and Racconigi with its amazing Castle. Very welcome was the fact that we met almost no tourists! Just 5 German walkers when we ventured right up the Po Valley to Crissolo and beyond (to Plan del Re) – apart from that we only met Italians, which was lovely. We had very little Italian but got by in the smaller towns with a little Spanish and more French! All in all it was an amazing holiday and communicating with Sally both before and during the stay was brilliant. We can heartily recommend Sally’s house and should love to revisit! ”
“We couldn't start our Summer holidays better than with staying a few days in Sally's Italian home. The house has a stunning garden, where the kids picked fresh and sweet pears and figs. The swing in the tree resulted in hours of play fun. Inside the house there's is everything you need for a comfortable stay. It's super clean and well equipped. There's so much to do and to explore in this part of Italy, that we cannot wait to come back. Thanks Sally for the greatest hospitality! Always welcome in Rotterdam. ”
“We have had a wonderful holiday at Casa Fontana. The location was amazing with breathtaking views. The villa met all our needs and has been very tastefully restored with local stone and decor. The area is great to explore with really good restaurants in nearby Pinerolo. Sally gave us really good information to find the property and everything had been arranged to be ready for our arrival. I would strongly recommend the house and the area. We loved the drives around and up into the mountains and had some fabulous views and sights. The house and garden is very dog friendly and our dog was safe in the fenced in garden. Great holiday and fabulous location . ”
“This was a dream villa in the woods with a nice neighboor that can help if necessary We enjoyed it very much we will surely recommend it and come again The host Sally answered promptly all our questions. ”
“Sally was an absolute pleasure to correspond with, all details and information were 100% accurate. Sally has recently renovated this wonderful property to the very highest standard. The house has the most amazing views over Piemonte. There are so many wonderful little villages to explore and the city of Turin only 1 hour away. If you are looking for piece and tranquility I would definitely recommend this beautiful home. ”
“We had a wonderful time at Casa Fontana and could not reccomend it more. The home was clean and quiet and private. We enjoyed the nearby town and local food and culture. We liked Cavour the best of all the towns. We ate some amazing food. We usually ordered the " menu" for $25 euros each ( including wine and tip) and we could never get through the courses, because we got too full. . We also LOVED the Wednesday market in Bagnolo and thank Sally for telling us about it. We enjoyed being in an area with very few, if any, tourists. In one week, we only ran into one other couple who were on vacation and not Italian. Prices in restaurants and stores were very affordable and everyone we interacted with was friendly and helpful to us. Even though few people spoke English, we used an app to translate and did our best to use and understand Italian. Sally did a great job with all the remodeling and we appreciated every detail. Salvatore ( the neighbor) was helpful, especially when we lost power one night due to wind. Beautiful, romantic, non- touristy experience.”
“Sally communicated quickly to all our questions and as per her directions we approached the property via the winding narrow lane up the "mountain". What a reward awaited us after the steep climb up the single track road! A newly refurbished country home with ample space, all modern amenities, yet still the charm of yesteryear. Soft large new towels, strong powerful shower, comfy beds and pillows, your own orchard to pick fruit for breakfast, we didn't want to leave! Wonderful views in a tranquil, beautiful garden...the photo's don't do the place justice. If you are in two minds weather to book this home, don't hesitate you wont be disappointed. ”
“it is 5 stars from all the angles the photos are 100 % accurate the house is exactly as described-very well planned, furnished and equipped the bedlinen and pillows are excelllent the communication with Sally was efficient 110% , she is a very rapid replier the house manual is very well done and elaborated to the smallest detail the house is in a very isolated area prepare to detox without wi fi do not miss the restaurant called La Bergere and small towns in the area”
“Our time spent at this wonderful house has been amazing. The house has been recently renovated and very well designed and thought through in every single detail. The garden is absolutely beautiful and it has these gorgeous views over the “Piedmonte”, high above looking over, it is the ideal place to have dinner while the sun goes down. The rooms are very cosy, and the bathrooms are well fitted with soothing multi-shower heads. We took hikes around the nearby forest and we have crossed family of deers. The experience is just priceless. The gardener and neighbor has been of great help with any doubts we had with the house, whether it is about locking up doors or recommendation around the area. The location is perfect, its a great point of departure to visit other areas. There are loads of wonderful little villages around, as well as big city like Turin not too far away, while being reminded of the incredible views to the gorgeous Alpes landscape. Yoel ”
“perfect guests would love to host them again”
