  • Finally there is the possibility to visit the villa Acqui pride, although few are the acquesi to be entered therein. The guided tour provides explanations concerning also the Ottolenghi family history that created this masterpiece of the time. About the villa and the garden, it denotes that it was a great class if we think of the tubs-pools with edges swivel armchairs carved in stone, regolarissimi stone walls themselves, "rare" plants that are present in the Park. To embellish all are definitely the works of the masters Ferrari that is wrought iron sculptures out of the well, with gates, doors and gates with incredible precision, especially having regard to the mole and the years passed. Inside a building equally refined especially in dining room, hardwood floors and stairs; a shame that they no longer present a large part of the furnishings, which were supposed to be at the same level. The hope is that the current owners will be able to bring everything back to the glories of the past (even with adequate furnishings) then definitely deserves 5 stars.

  • Before visiting this little-known villa I wanted to read the TripAdvisor reviews and affected especially by that of Ylenia shortly before today's date, I went there. The Villa is nothing short of amazing! After having turned the entire inside and out, up and down, left and I have to say that the cost of admission (the Villa is currently privately owned and, therefore, I believe more than correct that there is a price to see how they could have easily keep for them) it's really worth. If Miss Ylenia had been more attentive in listening to the Guide's explanations, perhaps, would have heard that right now are in opera some renovations so it is quite normal that there is a certain disorder and a fair approximation in the care of the environment. The fact that it is empty, then, is due to the previous ownership that has auctioned off all the original furnishings. Of all the lack of care and order spoken of, honestly, I have to say I didn't notice because I was abducted by the skill and wisdom of those who contributed in any way to the creation of an immeasurable and invaluable artwork. The sale of wine? It's true. At the end of the tour about a couple of hours, the guide accompanies in the cellars of the Villa (inside the studios of artists) for a tasting of wines produced from grapes grown by the owners on the slopes around. There I find it not bad at all. Doesn't seem like there is an obligation to purchase or more. However beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Is a masterpiece that can speak a language that is understandable to anyone concerned. Or almost. A must see!

  • It is a private facility (currently owned by a milanese businessman), then open only on certain days and at certain times. Unfortunately many rooms are now empty, in part because the heirs of desolately Ottolenghi, before selling it, they took away many works and documents that would give more meaning had they remained in place. However, for the location and for the wonderful garden, one of the things worth seeing in Acqui Terme

  • Exceptional example of rationalist architecture, artwork of Piacentini. Beautiful gardens that were designed by Porcinai. But the House is full of surprises, a visit which I recommend to everyone!
