Casa Collina is located in stunning countryside in the heart of the Monferrato wine region. Many holiday lets boast of being ‘unspoilt’ or ‘away-from-it-all’ but Casa Collina really is in a beautiful part of Italy that is completely untouched by tourism. You really will be hard pressed to find other holidaymakers in this part of Piedmont. The area is lovely and hilly, covered in vineyards that are punctured by small hilltop villages, seemingly untouched since the Middle Ages. It truly is beautiful and makes for some amazing holiday photos. This landscape goes on for miles and on certain days, the Alps including Monte Blanc and Monte Rosa are clearly visible along most of the horizon.
The international airports of Genoa and Turin are about 40 minutes away with Milans terminals another 20 minutes further.
Other Activities: wine tours
Golf: Numerous challenging golf courses located in South Piedmont
Ski: With views of the Alps on a clear day, it is of no surprise that you can use the house as a base to explore the ski resorts of Piedmont and Aosta. The Turin winter Olympics of 2006 showcased numerous resorts in Peidmont and they can all be accessed within a 2 hour drive. If you want a whole weeks skiing then this isn't probably the best located property you could find but if you want a days skiing followed by a days shopping in Milan or a day at the beach, this is not a bad villa to rent. Cervinia, Sestriere and Limone are all within 2 hours easy driving distances from Casa Collina.
