We had terrible trouble locating this B&B because it was hidden down a side alley in the pleasant and interesting small town of Biella. We had misgivings at first, because the location did not look great, but we were nicely greeted and told we had a choice of three rooms, but as soon as we saw what owner Eddie called 'the Light Room' we were enchanted. This large room comprised a suite! Not only a large bed, but a couch and armchairs, desk and large TV in a colourful, tasteful room with a window-wall onto the breakfast terrace and garden.
A curved glass-bricked wall led into the most intriguing shower room I've ever seen: a nautical theme, with a pebbled floor, two great shower heads, and an artful use of attractive seashells and large white pebbles. Large sink, bidet and loo all artfully fitted. Copious large towels. We were enchanted. Eddie sent us up a cliff for our dinner (actually, he recommended a place at the top of a funicular railway). Wonderful filled croissants were part of a great breakfast. We definitely want to return to Biella for a week, and we hope we get THAT room again!More
