We stayed at Borgo Cortese for 2 nights whilst visiting Gavi for easy access to the McArthur Glen shopping outlet in nearby Serravalle and what a great and friendly experience it was. From the time we arrived to the time we left we were extremely well looked after by the owner "Tony" and were made to feel completely at home. The title of B&B does not do it justice, the room was of a good size, superbly comfortable bed with a very tasteful en-suite bathroom. There was also a very large balcony area which alas was under utilised on a cold weekend in February, although I am sure overlooking the river would be a great vantage point in the summer months. The location is very central with underground parking available within a 2 minute walk. Finally the breakfast was absolutely superb, served adjacent to the room in a lovely farmhouse feel dining room. I really can't recommend this place enough and if you are in the Gavi area looking for well priced, well located and super friendly host then give Tony a call, you won't be disappointed.
This B&B is well positioned, in a quiet street of the very heart of the old town. It is a recently beautifully renovated old building with newly refurbished rooms. Our room on the first floor was spacious, nicely furnished, well-equipped, and very clean, the beds were really comfortable, bedding as white as snow, towels soft and fluffy. Wonderful large terrace with a fantastic view overlooking the small river. Fast, reliable WiFi. Breakfast was simple but plentiful and presented really beautifully. The host/owner/manager Toni gave us the warmest possible welcome and was very friendly and highly attentive all the time throughout our 5 days stay. He was doing his best to make us feel at home and we fully enjoyed this beautiful place and its cosy atmosphere. It may be a bit on the pricey side for a B&B, but it is worth it.
I simply can not recommend this place enough. The place is charming, the owners obviously put their heart into the place and all they want is for their guests to have a fabulous time. We stayed downstairs where we had a beautiful bedroom, bathroom, sitting room and kitchen all to ourselves. We had free, secure underground parking and the guesthouse is right in the centre of this historic town, filled with great restaurants. (beer and Co was our favourite).
We booked for one night, stayed for two ... but would have happily stayed for much longer. We were made so welcome and felt so at home.
The breakfast was the biggest surprise. The table was laid with a beautiful spread, such attention to detail.
If you are visiting Gavi don't look further than this place.
