offers two types of accommodation, 4 bed and breakfast rooms and
two self-contained apartments (one bedroom and two bedrooms).
The B&B rooms are on the first floor and elegantly furnished
with traditional Piedmont farmhouse carved wood and marble top furniture.
Each room is named after one of the local varieties of wine grapes
and has a French window leading onto a private balcony with vistas
of the surrounding woods and hills, and its own bathroom complete
with bathtub/shower combination. All rooms have matromoniale beds
(3 queen and 1 king size) and in 2 rooms the beds can be converted
into two singles on request. One set of rooms has an adjoining door
for family use, and we can provide an additional single bed or a
child’s cot for the rooms.
B&B guests have their own large salon d'hospiti (guest lounge),
with big picture windows facing the sun deck, perfect for relaxing,
reading, watching TV, or enjoying a glass of vino. The salon has
a library including local travel maps and information as well as
a satellite TV set. For guests in early spring and late fall, a
wood stove provides a cozy and warm corner.
The two apartments are on the ground floor with their own separate
entrances in the back and a portico/verandah facing the vineyards
and view deck. Each apartment has a kitchen and living room including
complete cooking and dining utensils, a TV, a spacious bathroom
with bathtub/shower and furnished in the same traditional Piedmont
style as the rooms. The smaller apartment has a bedroom with a queen
size bed and a twin sofa bed in the living room (total 4 people);
the larger has two bedrooms, one with queen and one with a combination
bed (queen or two single) and a divan in the living room, which
can sleep an extra person (total 5 persons). We can provide a child’s
cot on request.
Meals are served in the main dining room of the original house adjoining
the salon d'hospiti. Breakfast is a buffet continental style (cooked
breakfast on request). Dinner (on request for minimum 4 people)
is a 5-course set-menu and our own wines are served by the winemaker.
Guests can use the main laundry room for their own washing and ironing,
or we can arrange for a laundry service in Asti.
Villa Sampaguita does not have individual guest phones; we anticipate
many guests have their own mobile phones. Of course our guests can
use our house phone or fax in necessity and we have both wireless
broadband connection and a guest Internet PC at no charge.
Villa Sampaguita is about two kilometres from the main road to Asti,
and there is a bus service. We can arrange to drop and pickup guests
to Asti, fitting in with our working farm schedule, and there is
a taxi service on-call, but having a rent-car is virtually a must-have
for touring the area. We can arrange bicycle or moto-scooter rentals.
Please go to BOOKINGS for all rates.
