Sandra and Andrea want to warmly welcome you to “Le Stanze della Musica” (The Rooms of Music), neither a mere Bed & Breakfast nor a hotel, but rather a place open to all keen travellers, particularly inclined to “playing music on holiday”. Since music is also made of silence, absolutely respectful of the relax and peace of our guests, we offer them a special sound-proof room placed outside the main building, where not only a musician or a student, but also a simple amateur or a curious listener, are in a position to play, listen to, read, record their music, and listen again to themselves. All this remaining deep in the green and wonderful territory of the hills of Alba and the district of Langhe (which were recently declared a world heritage by UNESCO - where history, arts, nature, winemaking, and cooking art live together in perfect harmony. Six rooms, each dedicated to a specific age of music, are waiting for you, along with Sandra’s caring and careful cooking.
