Midway between the quaint market town of Santo Stefano Belbo and the medieval town of Calosso, the farmhouse is set in an elevated position amongst the beautiful wine hills of the Langhe and Monferrato, with breathtaking views of surrounding countryside. It is at the centre of the most widely acclaimed wine and food region in Italy. The house is in the middle of a Unesco recognised zone, in the process of being listed for it's beauty and the unique coverage of the hills with small vineyards.
The beautiful farmhouse has recently been restored to the highest standard with cotto floors, stone benches and much locally made wooden furniture. Each bedroom has its own balcony (one a large terrazzo) and the whole house faces south to ensure plenty of light and sunshine.
A two story house with 4 bedrooms (3 facing south), a large but cosy lounge room with open fire, and an enormous kitchen/dining/living room.
The house includes a sheltered portico area for outdoor dining and barbecue.
The grounds comprise a paved area around the elevated house (approx 150 sq m) and some 2000 sq m of dolcetto vineyard below. The area surrounding the house is enclosed and ideal for outside eating under the awning and a safe play area for children.
Your morning walk on the narrow , barely used country roads, takes you past some of the most highly regarded vineyards and wineries in Piemonte. These roads wind through an exquisite landscape which extends as far as the eye can see.
Within an easy 10 minute drive of the property you will find charming local restaurants and several osteria which form an important part of the history of the worldwide slow food movement.
The towns of Alba (home of the prized white truffle) and Barolo (premier Italian wine) are within a short drive as well as Bra, the birth place of slow food.
Visits to wonderful local cantinas can be arranged with a phone call and delicious local food purchased at local markets several times a week.
There is a lovely public swimming pool 6 kms away at Costigliole d'Asti and a very large public swimming pool can be found in Acqui Terme (only 20 minutes by car).
Other activities include cycling, tennis (in local village) and boules and table tennis on the property.
