Home away from home

We bought this house 2019 and gave a new life to it as our home and a holiday rental. Renovated during the covid and now, after two summers, it looks like our guests really appreciate our approach to simple living and lifestyle in the Monferrato countryside, Piedmont. This place is made for someone who loves…

Fresh paint! And ready for season 2022!

Agnes & Albin is ready to say hello to season 2022 guests. During the winter time we had our house painted and now, with fresh paint, it looks even more welcoming. We wanted to keep the ”few vintages ago” -feeling, so we chose a paint color similar to original. That is our guideline here -…

The most magical time of the year

Want to spend Christmas 2022 in Italy? Imagine this….Vineyards covered in snow, christmas markets in small towns, wine tastings, hot chocolate in the piazza, christmas lights and palazzos of Turin and Genoa, long walks, relaxing in outdoor hot tub, a looooooong italian Christmas lunch at the restaurant, house decorated with Christmas lights and a big…

Summer 2022 and weekly rentals

Dreaming about next summer holiday with your loved ones? While sunny autumn days are definitely still here, we are already thinking about next summer. Or to be exact, YOU are already thinking about next summer, since we are receiving messages every week about availability.  So if you want to rent our house for private use…

Poolside snacks

Sunny and warm pool days are here! Take it easy, read a book, listen some music, do poolside yoga, enjoy cooling drink….But somehow relaxing can make you grave for some snacks, right? We like to recommend small tramezzino sandwiches! Easy peasy to make even for a bigger crew and everybody loves them. Add some sweet…

House dog

If you rent Agnes & Albin Atelje apartment, you will probably meet our house dog. Lido is a mix of dalmatian and border collie, already 12 years old, but still full of energy. She welcomes you with all of her joy and energy, running around in the yard and maybe jumping around you, happy to…

Al mare

Days at the beach doing nothing but relaxing and enjoying are an italian summer institution. Ligurian coast is 1,5 h drive away, so you can easily have a beach day while staying in Agnes & Albin. For a day trip we recommend Noli. It’s a small fishermen’s village and you can drive little scenic roads…

Postcard from Genova

Greetings from Genova! We had a one night visit in Genova and I can already say, it’s a hidden gem. A vibrant city with so many contradictions, small alleys and big palazzos, historical city of banks and fishermen, so many gastronomical delicacies like pesto sauce, farinata (kind of focaccia made from chickpea flours), everything fritto…

Time for bubbles!

It’s official! Great news! Majority of Italian regions will be ”zona gialla” starting from next monday and Piedmont is one of those regions. Gialla means yellow and it’s the lowest corona alert stage in Italy. It means that we are slowly returning to normality. I’m not listing all the changes, only those most relevant to…

Safe travels

Renting a private holiday house from countryside is probably the most safe way to travel and experience the world this summer. We are happy to welcome you under the italian sun with to most safe way. Wearing a mask in public areas, maintaining a distance for others and sanitazing hands frequently are a new normal…
