Set in the medieval center of a perfect Italian village, this large one bedroom apartment is the site for a quintessential Italian holiday whether it's a quiet weekend for two or a base for exploring Piemonte, Genova, and the beaches of Liguria

Stedet
The view from the kitchen and dining room windows over the small piazza could be a scene from an Italian opera. From the bedroom windows the view is the main piazza and the church (of course). The apartment retains its medieval flavor--ancient tile floors, frescoed ceiling, classic windows and shutters, walls one meter thick-- but with a modern bathroom and chef's kitchen. Our 600 year old apartment was carefully updated with modern plumbing and wiring, but without sacrificing the ancient plaster walls or massive beams. This corner palazzo, facing 2 piazzas allows the apartment far more light and air than is common in medieval buildings.

Gjestetilgang
The third floor apartment (no elevator) is 100 sq. meters (approx. 1000 sq. ft.). The marvelous kitchen, complete with high quality appliances, cookware, and dinnerware is open to the dining room, sharing the view of the piazza and the light from large windows. The bedroom has a large king bed, quality linens and duvet, beautiful lighting and a built in wardrobe. The living room with fireplace style woodstove and comfy arm chairs is a charming spot for evening relaxation. The modern bathroom has exposed beams, terracotta tiles and plenty of storage for piles of fluffy towels and your cosmetics. The glass enclosed shower provides endless hot water.

The furnishings include some lovely antique pieces, beautiful window treatments,interesting art, and plenty of books.

Andre ting det er verdt å merke seg
In the interests of full disclosure: there are churches; they have bells; the bells ring on the hour (and once on the half hour), 24 hours per day. Like many people, I find the bells charming, but whether you are charmed or not, the bells will ring.

I've mentioned that the apartment is a third floor walk-up. Good view, long stairs.

There's no TV and no wi-fi though the bar in the piazza offers free wi-fi. I will lend you a local pay-as-you-go mobile phone.

Beliggenhet

Ovada, Piedmont, Italia

The two piazzas outside your windows offer your choice of bars and cafes for breakfast and apperitivi. Or shop for your meals in the bakery downstairs, the gelateria, the pastry shop, the pasta fresca maker, the butcher, the produce shop, the enoteca, the alimentari (small grocery), the fishmonger, or the gourmet take-away shop, all within a one minute walk from your door. On Wednesday and Saturday, the streets and piazzas of the centro are closed to traffic and the market is at your doorstep--one piazza of food and plants, the others with clothes and farm tools and copper pans and underwear and hardware and shoes and crafts. Ovada resumes its historic position as the "citta" for the surrounding smaller villages; at one o'clock the streets are swept and washed and the quiet village is back.

Ovada is known for art as well as wine and you will often find exhibits of local artists in the ancient "Loggia" around the corner or in one of the several galleries in the centro. Frequent concerts in the piazzas or the park of the music school are open to the public, and religious festivals with processions, complete with marching band and giant statues carried through the streets, happen several times a year. Some of these incorporate dining events with communal tables in the piazza for ravioli and vino, or truffles and vino, or farinata and vino. Always the vino.

Through the year there is a schedule of "antiquariati", antique flea markets, which take over the streets and piazzas for a day with hundreds of vendors and even more visitors. But just for the day--then the streets are cleaned and our quiet village is back.

For the rare visitor from abroad, Ovada is an Italian fantasy come alive. And then there is the rest of the Alto Monferrato to explore if you can bear to leave for a few hours or a day.

I value privacy as both host and guest. I want to be your guest only if I have my own pleasant space and bathroom. I welcome you as my guest in your own apartment around the corner from my home. I will be happy to introduce you to my town and show you around if you like...or just be available in case of any problem if that is your preference.

The apartment is just around the corner from my home. I will meet you, introduce you to the minor eccentricities of your apartment, and I will be happy to share my knowledge of the town, its wines, and the surrounding region if you want.
