About Alessandro & Monica

We are Alessandro and Monica Barattieri di San Pietro and we come from the city of Torino where Alessandro worked as a database designer and Monica was an architect. After living our first 45 years of life in a city, we felt that we needed to improve the quality of our life, and in 2008 we moved to this wonderful countryside and we love it.

Alessandro & Monica purchased this farmhouse in 2001

Why Alessandro & Monica chose Vaglio Serra

We had the habit of resting and ‘recharging our batteries’ by escaping from city daily life and visiting quiet areas, where we preferred to find hospitality in private homes, rather than in large hotels.

This choice allowed us to really enjoy our surroundings and break away from everyday life.

Over the years the Monferrato area has become the most frequent and favourite destination for our excursions: the rolling hills, the changing colours and the wonderful cultural heritage, still little known. In these places we found dear friends who have helped us to understand the culture and the traditions of these places, which made us appreciate them even more.

riginal internal decoration and attention to details, family ancient forniture from 19th and early 20th century, the garden, the pool with a view...

What makes this farmhouse unique

The place, on a hill ridge between vineyards, hazelnut orchards and thick woods was great. The vicinity to a lovely tiny village and 4km from a town bustling with commerce. The very traditional feel and style of the building, that we preserved by designing and realising a careful renovation.

Lovely house with fabulous pool

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in late July/early August in Valgio Serra, with our 3 children and one set of grandparents.

The house nestles in the hills just a few kilometres north of the market town of Nizza Monferrato. It is beautifully presented

throughout, with a lovely terrance on the east side. The bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms are quite stunning, like a boutique

hotel. Both the adults and children loved the salt water pool is which is fabulous, for swimming rather than just being an overgrown paddling pool and also enjoyed playing pétanque in the garden.

Out hosts, Alessandro and Monica occupy separate apartments in opposite side of the property and were absolutely lovely temporary neighbours. They were both friendly and helpful but at the same time completely unobtrusive.

The property was clean, in good condition and was cleaned twice during our two week vacation. Our only minor criticisms would be that the if you are planning on doing much cooking, that kitchen is fairly basic.

We would not hesitate to recommend the villa and are already contemplating a return visit in a couple of years.

Un coin de paradis au milieu des vignes

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer un merveilleux séjour en famille à Casa Isabella. La maison est un havre de paix et de fraicheur, décorée avec beaucoup de gout , ouverte grâce à la terrasse sur un superbe jardin plein de fleurs, d'arbres fruitiers et d'herbes aromatiques.

La piscine surplombant les vignobles est idéale pour nager et se rafraichir.

Le plus est definitivement l'accueil d'Alessandro et de Monica qui nous ont accueillis avec beaucoup de gentillesse et de bonne humeur et nous ont fait découvrir la délicieuse cuisine piémontaise.

Nous recommandons chaudement cette adresse.
