About Feeling Italy
A man and a woman that share a passion, who believed in their dream and through their work have made it real.
Designs and projects moving from mind to paper, then the skilful hand of the man who recovered its ancient splendour of the old medieval castle relevance.
Things that lives again through the passion, wood, plaster and ceramics returning to the original beauty of those who think six centuries ago. Forms and arches reappear, hidden by too many years of neglect and abandonment.
Then, the choice to share this dream, offering it to guests in the most genuine way, opening the doors of our home to those who will bring warm and find friendship.
The shared passion, which is renewed, finding ourself in front of the fireplace with a bottle of our great Piedmontese red wines.

What makes this apartment unique
Monferrato and Langhe are at the heart of the gastronomic culture of Piemonte. Land of unique flavours as its great wines, Monferrato is very appreciated by gourmets all over the world and from all the tourists looking for a quiet and relaxing holiday surrounded by gentle hills covered with vineyards and hazelnut trees, surrounded by oak and beech woods who guard their most precious secret: the white truffle.
In the summer Monferrato unveils its perfumes in a wide array of food and wine festivals and offers inimitable colours of its gently rolling hills and its cities of art.
The end of the season coincides with the most important events, the Palio di Asti (the medieval horse race), the Festival of Festivals (the largest open air restaurant event in Italy) and Douja d'Or (the most important wine contest at national level) that accompany the tourist to the harvest and the search of the king: His Majesty the white truffle.
In the heart of Monferrato is Frinco, an ancient medieval Marquis, that retains a severe look with its the imposing castle above it.
Our structure is part of the ancient historical centre of the town and has been restored to offer a warm home to the tourist who wants to find the welcome quiet and reserved just like a relaxing holiday at home.
In the cellars there is a small SPA (available for rental) with Jacuzzi bath, sensory shower and a Finnish sauna and a wine tasting room: here the great red wines of Piedmont, Barolo, Barbaresco and Nebbiolo, give way to the fruits of local vineyards, Barbera, Freisa and Monferrato.
