Asti Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
Sleeps 12. 6 bedroom farmhouse. The property (1906) has been renovated to a high standard maintaining its character with brick vaulted ceilings and original doors and wonderful vaulted ceiling cellar whilst providing the most modern living with en-suites to each bedroom, large kitchen dining area, snug, separate lounge, swimming pool, garden and outside dining area. The house faces south with uninterrupted countryside views down to and past the old mill.
Our beautifully restored farmhouse is arranged over three floors. Whilst writing this, I am sitting in the garden under the electrically controlled sun awning and the only noise I can hear are the bees, the birds and my husband pottering in the garden. The pool is glistening just to my right, the table under the portico is laid up for lunch and the trees over the fields and in the distance are whistling in the breeze. The ground floor of our farmhouse has been designed for family living and entertaining with large open plan space with patio doors out to the garden and separate drawing room. But this isn't just a wonderful summer retreat: in the winter we light the two fires, watch the TV, play cards or board games or play the grand piano. We have high speed wifi that allows all of us to surf the web at our leisure or indeed work a bit as we and our guests often have to do at least once during our stay. Our charming village offers 2 trattorias, 3 bars, grocery store and pharmacy.

Beautiful wine and agricultural region. Many vineyards for wine tasting and buying of both red and white wine. Monbarruzzo - famous for its amaretti biscuits is 10 minutes drive through beautiful vine hills. Our village hosts the famous truffle fair on the 2nd Sunday in October which apparently sends a truffle to the US President each year. The butcher in our village last year won best butcher award for the whole of Italy. The local trattorias offer home made and home grown food and wine served with warmth and friendliness. The locals are wonderful and they love children.
