About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

This 200 year old, Napoleonic era villa was bought 30 years ago by the owners and restored with style, care and attention to historical detail. The house has a charming atmosphere and is full of light and very comfortable. There are 22 rooms in total spread over three floors, including six bedrooms, six bathrooms, one small kitchen upstairs and a large historical vaulted-ceiling kitchen, two dining rooms, three living rooms, a library and a study. The furniture is in excellent condition and gels perfectly with the historical ambiance of the house. This is a villa where a large family, several small families or group of friends can stay and enjoy the beautiful Piedmont area. The villa is near to the central piazza of the old village of Castagnole delle Lanze, and the lower garden opens directly on the piazza where the city hall, the church and the center of the village are situated. Nevertheless, the high walls surrounding the gardens permit a great sense of privacy and silence.

The town of Castagnole delle Lanze sits atop one of the rolling hills of the Alto Monferrato, on the edge of the Langhe where some of the most famous Italian wines are produced, such as Barolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Asti Spumante and the famous sweet vine Moscato. There are also world-renowned gastronomic products such as the white and black truffles of Alba and diverse cheeses. The region is home to many villages and castles that can be visited, such as Castello di Barolo, Castello di Serralunga, and many others. This area was dominated by some important Italian families (such as the Alfieri and San Marzano), all of which built great homes and castles. The largest towns in the vicinity of Castagnole are Asti (20 km) and Alba (20 km). Both are gorgeous medieval towns which possess excellent markets with fruit, organic breads, vegetables, fish, wines and everything you need. In the house you will find much information about markets, cinema, theaters and some of the very best restaurants in Italy.

The house is arranged as follows. On the lower floor there is a vaulted open-air portico, ideal for summer dining, adjacent to the large ‘rosengarden’ with many different roses and cherry trees (as well as a large shed that can be used as a garage); a large kitchen with dishwasher, oven and a large fireplace; and a dining room with a table seating 14 people. The first floor is flanked by two courtyards with small gardens, one containing mint, sage and rosemary and another protected behind high walls in typical Italian style. There is also one master bedroom and a bathroom, large and small living rooms, and a library rich with books in many languages. On the second level there are five master bedrooms and four bathrooms, a large dining room and a kitchen. Both the first and second floors have balconies overlooking the rolling hills of Piedmonte beneath the dramatic Alps in the distance. There are also fuzball, ping-pong and a billiard table.
