DETACHED 4 BEDROOM VILLA WITH PRIVATE SWIMMING POOL AND VINEYARD

Asti Villa Rental Photos and Description

Private Villa with 11 metre pool seit in 1 acre of mature gardens

The detached villa with private pool is located on the edge of Mombaldone, a small village in the heart of the Piedmont region.The four-bedroomed property comfortably accommodates eight people and is ideally suited to extended families or two families holidaying together. There's everything on site for a self-contained holiday, but the location of the villa means that guests are on the doorstep of the world-famous vineyards of the Piedmont region. The villa itself was fully renovated in 2010, with an emphasis on retaining the traditional qualities and comforts of the property, whilst being equipped with all modern conveniences. The well-proportioned rooms with marble floors and high ceilings emphasise the spacious interior and give a light, airy feel to the property. The large, fully enclosed private gardens have a luxurious 11 metre swimming pool in the front lawns, surrounded by fruit trees and vines, with numerous areas for relaxing and dining in the sun or shade.

Location: This property is located on the edge of the small village of Mombaldone, in the Piedmont region of North West Italy. The villa is easily accessible by road or rail, just half a kilometre from the main Acqui Terme –Savona Road and has a rail station in the village. Visitors can enjoy the countryside, lakes and coast and are in easy reach of the main cities of the region, i.e. Milan, Turin and Genoa. Although Piedmont is world renowned by food and wine connoisseurs it still remains relatively undiscovered by mainstream tourists.

The villa’s location, with the Italian Riviera one hour to the south, and skiing one hour to the west, provides a climate of contrasting seasons, with hot Mediterranean summers and snow filled alpine winters. Springtime brings mild days, when the blossoms and fruit trees burst into bloom, whilst autumn provides a blaze of colour and signals the picking of the grapes from the numerous vineyards across the region.

Mombaldone: Mombaldone itself is the only village in the Asti region that is still surrounded by its original walls. The entrance to the ancient village is through a Gothic-style entrance door to the shelter, which has been preserved in its original medieval form. The most important monuments converge on Piazza Umberto at the centre of the village and although the 13th century castle is now little more than a ruin ravaged by time, it is also well worth a visit.

In the village there is a post office, shop, rail station and local bar. The local shop is open every day and supplies all the essentials required for a self-catering holiday including freshly baked bread. The train is a useful and practical way to visit the beautiful, small villages along Italian Riviera; tickets can be purchased from the post office. A 5 minute drive or a 30 minute walk takes you to the village of Montechiaro D’Acqui, where there is a bank, ATM, chemist, butcher, baker, garage, bars, and a great pizza restaurant.

Local Attractions: Only 20 minutes’ drive from the villa is the spa town of Acqui Terme. It is steeped in history, yet has designer shops, boutiques, fabulous restaurants and great cafés as well as a hypermarket. The thermal water comes to the surface in Piazza Bollente, in the centre of town. People come from miles around to bottle the sulphuric scented water from the fountain, heated naturally to 75°C, due to its health giving properties.Acqui Terme also boasts one of the largest outdoor swimming pools in Europe consisting of 3 linked pools, with areas for the very young, and for those that are very brave with 10 metre diving boards!

The area is famed around the world for its selection of fine wines. These include Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera, Dolcetto and Moscato D'Asti. Many wine tours take place throughout the region.

Local cuisine is renown throughout Italy, the precious white truffles of this region are a special delicacy, with special truffle markets being held in Alba during Autumn.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We very much liked to stay in your beautiful house. It was perfect: spacious rooms and very convenient bathrooms, big well equipped kitchen, a beautiful garden and a very nice swimming pool. And of course, the region is extraordinary.



We felt that our stay was too short; one week disappears quickly!

A great week in Piedmont

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at the house. The home and the grounds were beautiful and spacious, very comfortable for our group of four adults and three teenagers. This is a quieter part of Piedmont than the area around Alba, but the scenery is beautiful and there are many little hill towns, including Mombaldone, a medieval walled village, which is just a mile or so from the house. We also went to Acqui Terme, just 30 minutes away, for dinner several times. But mostly, we just enjoyed the house and the pool and the lovely weather. Our hosts were very responsive to any questions about the house; they even helped us find a mechanic in town when we had a flat tire. Would love to return.

Immaculate house with wonderful garden and pool

  • 5 of 5
The house is as lovely as it appears online and the garden is even better as plants have grown up and many were in flower in August. This is one of the best equipped houses we have ever stayed in - excellent kitchen equipment, good dishwasher and washing machine, DVDs, books (including guide books), maps of the area, board games and outside games (boules, racquets, frisbees etc). Everything had been thought of to make it a relaxing stay. The pool was immaculate when we arrived and a lovely temperature to swim in. Outside eating area with excellent BBQ was brilliant, we sat there every night. The plants in the garden were watered in the early mornings by a neighbour and the evenings by a sprinkler system -beware, don't sit by the pool at 7.15pm!
Lots of different places to sit in the garden, for sun or shade lovers.
There was a lovely range of local goodies on arrival (including fresh pasta, eggs, tomatoes, fruit, milk, coffee, beer, red and sparkling wine). One of our party is coeliac and I had emailed Carole in advance to ask about buying gluten free food in Italy (by the way - much easier than in England!) and we were delighted to see on arrival a huge array of gluten free food provided as well, how thoughtful.
We had one or two issues during the week - pedal fell off a bike, and the internet connection was a real issue, but Carole was quick to answer email queries and was always very helpful.
Some lovely villages in the local area and driving over the hills to the Barolo vineyards was stunning.
Highly recommended for a comfortable, relaxing holiday.

Fantastic villa and pool in lovely surroundings.

  • 5 of 5
First impressions fantastic. The size of the villa, the size of the pool and the in-house entertainment and facilities. My son (aged 16) was very impressed. In particular the welcome pack with fresh local products was very well received considering the time of our arrival. The villa is set in lovely grounds and is clean and well maintained. Lots of information is made available if you need it. In the week we were staying, there was some day-time noise coming from work going on in the area but generally it was pretty quiet. Overall we had a fantastic holiday and left wishing we had stayed longer than a week.

A perfect week!

  • 5 of 5
We were two couples here for a week in September; it was sunny all week and in a really beautiful place. The house is fantastic and equipped with everything you need, we made great use of the barbecue, bikes, massive TV and wireless internet. There is a restaurant down the road that serves great pizzas, perfect for a wander down when you can't be bothered to cook.

The gardens were our favourite part - big swimming pool next to the vineyard and trees to the front of the house. We used the barbecue most days and really enjoyed eating outside in the patio area. We could have easily stayed around the house all week but the local spa town acqui terme is beautiful and has great restaurants. We also visited Savona on the Italian riviera which took less than an hour and is well worth a visit.

I know there are a lot of other places to visit in the area but we found it so hard to drag ourselves away from the house. We did stay over in Sirmione on lake Garda the night before we flew back from Milan and it was absolutely beautiful.

Really is the perfect place for a holiday.

The Beaumonts, England

  • 5 of 5
The villa is beautiful and very well presented. The neighbours were lovely and extremely helpful, particularly when we had a puncture on one of our motorbikes and they helped introduce us to the village mechanic who lent us a spanner. We were also really impressed with the lady who runs the village bar who arranged a night at the lovely village restaurant where we had a fantastic meal. The couple who run the restaurant seemed to have opened up specially and cooked and served a really memorable meal.

This is the nicest villa we have stayed in while in Italy and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Set amongst the most stunning surroundings, Villa Mombaldone is the perfect getaway for those wanting to escape the hustle and bustle. The Villa is decorated and equipped to the highest standard. After a day by the pool, a BBQ enjoyed under the gazebo is a wonderful way to take in the sights by night. A place where when our holiday was over our only regret was not staying for longer.

Piedmont is a geographically diverse region, relatively undiscovered and famous for producing some of the world's finest food and wines. It boasts some of Europe’s most stunning landscapes with a multitude of vineyards and rolling hills, interspersed by forests, meandering rivers and fast flowing streams. Less than an hours drive takes you to the Italian Riviera.

For the casual skier there are several nursery and snowboarding slopes within an easy drive of the property and to the West of Turin many internationally renown ski resorts within two hours drive. Turin is the regional capital and possesses many fine shops and museums of historical interest.

Near Milan is Serravalle Designer Outlet Europe’s largest designer outlet with 180 stores and showcases many Italian brands as well as other major international brands.

Lakes Como, Maggiore, Lugano and Orta are 2 hours drive North where one can relax and enjoy the views or partake in the water sports.
