Golf, mountain biking, walking, wine, horse riding: The area is has quite a few golf courses, the oldest 36 hole golf course is located near Asti, approx. 40 min drive. If interested in Golf I can provide you with some links to all the golf courses in the area. The area is very suitable for walking, a lot of hills though! The whole area is wonderful to discover, not too many tourists and definitely no menus in English!! Piemonte is also famous for their winesand truffels therefore there are many cellars/stores dotted around the area. The hilly landscape, the cuisine, rendered varied by the range of culture and small farms , and as there is a big monumental heritage this area will want you to come back again and again. Each season here is wonderful, starting from spring with its great burst of colour offered by the vineyard dotted hillsides. Summer has a breezy climate and preludes the glory of the harvest of a very tasty aromatic grape. Autumn shows the arrival of the delicious white truffle.

After having studied Italian in Florence I decided I wanted to find an old building to renovate and when i found this I fell in love with the view. There where 4 walls and everything else had to be done to the property from water, electricity, gas, roof, floors, windows etc...i rebuilt a house inside the wine storage place and loved doing it.
Minette purchased this house in 2005
Why Minette chose Castiglione Tinella
The view and location, it is difficult to find properties that have some flat ground and i wanted to avoid the zona rossa (planes fly over with spray for the vines) this property location was perfect and the view spectacular, the project was much larger than i was planning but this location is unique. Come and see it!
What makes this house unique
Private pool, very large kichen and a fantastic view which you can enjoy while eating your food and drinking a glass of wine. Described by previous guests as wherever you look you see a painting, the pictures don't do justice to the view
