Welcome to Villetta Sampaguita rental apartments located in the Roero wine hills of Piedmont.

After 18 wonderful years of operating a B&B and farm with hundreds of satisfied guests, Rina and Tim have downsized. We have sold the old Villa Sampaguita and moved to a smaller house in the charming village of San Pietro, overlooking the historic GOVONE CASTLE, surrounded by vineyards and with panoramic views of the Tanaro river valley, the Langhe and Monferrato wine hills and the Alps.

Villetta Sampaguita is halfway between the historic towns of Asti and Alba; 15 minutes drive in either direction and there is an hourly bus service for those who prefer not to rent a car. Turin is 45 minutes drive; Milan and Genoa are both one hour away. We can arrange a pickup from any of the airports (Milan, Turin or Genoa) or from Asti train station.

Villetta Sampaguita has two comfortable apartment suites, both self contained with kitchen and living room, available for short and long term rental. Of course guests can opt to have breakfast too. We are open all year round with both heating and air-conditioning for guest comfort. (VILLETTA SAMPAGUITA RENTAL SUITES)

Rina is making cooking classes on a for smaller groups of up to 6 people in her new custom made kitchen, continuing on from our old agriturismo. (VILLETTA SAMPAGUITA COOKING CLASSES). We have now added online cooking classes 3 times a week during the pandemic (COOKING WITH RINA ONLINE)

The famous wine areas of Barbaresco and Barolo are a short drive from us, we will continue to offer tours either self drive or with a car and English speaking driver if you like to sample the wines without having to drive. (VILLETTA SAMPAGUITA TOURS)

The Roero is one of central Piedmont’s main wine areas although not as well known as the Monferrato and Langhe, therefore less tourists and better values. The area is also famous for peaches and honey. The gently rolling hills are ideal for hiking and biking and we have e-bikes available for rent to those who need a little boost (ROERO CYCLING).

Piedmont is also famous for its cuisine and there are many fabulous restaurants in our area as well as Asti and Alba. There is an albergo in walking distance with a swimming pool/spa available on a daily basis and several restaurants in the nearby towns of Govone and Priocca. The nearest weekly food markets are in Canale and San Damiano and of course, there are many truffle fairs in season. Govone Castle hosts several musical and art events each year and is known for its annual Christmas fair.(GOVONE CASTLE)
