Just got back from 8 days in Monforte d'Alba, Piemonte (E&O E):
Sounds like a great trip. Did you stay in Nino's (Felicin) apartments? That view of the alps from the terrace is breathtaking.
Yes, and this time we were blessed with clear skies and September weather the whole time! We had breakfast and a couple of lunches in the apartment with the door wide open, sometimes sitting on the balcony in short sleeves. I wore short sleeves most of the trip and didn't need a jacket at times. Views were stunning everywhere. The 2.5 hr lunch on the terrace overlooking the piazza at Albergo Alberto in Serralunga with a clear view of Mt. Viso was incredible. This was definitely not what one would expect for November. On my last trip it rained the whole time...
