Rocca Grimalda Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa of 500 square meters with 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms

In the splendid setting of the Monferrato hills, immersed in the countryside of Cremolino (AL), land of prized Dolcetto DOC wine, stands the old property named "Cascina Masseria", once owned by the Marquis Stella of Roma. A short walk from the villa within the park is the historic church of St. Biagio, documented in the papal bull of Sixtus IV in 1473.

Since 1992, after a careful and painstaking restoration, the Cascina Masseria Estate is returned to its glory and splendor, becoming an ideal setting for a holiday of complete immersion in nature.

The property, provided with all the comforts, will convey all the warmth and simplicity of a country house with ceilings with exposed wood beams and brick walls rough. You will be fascinated by a large living room with typical vaulted ceilings and by a warm red brick fireplace.

Climbing a scenic flight of stairs leading to the first floor, you will access to the billiard room with panoramic glass walls, and a beautiful stone fireplace set in a large window overlooking the valley.

On the main facade facing the pool, there is a large and livable porch used on summer evenings as relax area.

In the courtyard of the villa there is an annex with a portico under which you can spend convivial evenings with a barbecue area with wood oven.

Outdoors there is also a beautiful swimming pool and large gardens including ancient woodland and flat lawn where you can enjoy the charm of the countryside of Monferrato. The villa, surrounded by vineyards, stands at 500 m. above sea level, benefiting even in summer a dry temperature with cool evenings.

Tenuta Cascina Masseria offers an ideal base for exploring the Langhe-Roero and Monferrato lands, UNESCO World Heritage, and having guided tours in the wine cellars ("wine tasting tours") of Barolo and Barbaresco or to villages and castles of this region.

Just 7 miles from the property is worth visiting the beautiful Acqui Terme, a town founded by the Romans in the IInd century BC, to enjoy the therapeutic properties of its thermal waters known since then, and relax at one of its renowned wellness centers.

Also a day-trip on the Italian Riviera is always possible: Portofino is just 59 miles from our property and the Cinque Terre are located 92 miles away.

IMPORTANT: the reservation is considered accepted upon receipt of the rental payment and acceptance of the "RENTAL AGREEMENT AND CONDITIONS", a document that will be previously sent to the guest and properly signed and returned.

Beautiful villa/farm in a gorgeous Italian landscape

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here in the second week of august 2016. The owner, Marco, welcomed us and made sure we had a great stay. We loved the original Italian pizza oven and the BBQ in the garden. Our kids loved the swimming pool. There was so much peace around the house. You can have total privacy there. Around the villa are several smal villages with some nice old castles to visit. We loved our stay here and we would love to come back.

un paradiso terrestre

  • 5 of 5

Premetto che non sono un'amante della campagna e quasi a fatica mi sono fatta convincere da due coppie di amici a recarmi in questa tenuta. E' stata una vera sorpresa, una vacanza da sogno ed indimenticabile che mi ha riconciliato con la campagna. Splendida location immersa nel verde con tutti i comforts. Spazi ampissimi sia interni che esterni, piscina strepitosa circondata da prato, zona solarium. Per non parlare della chiesetta privata che si trova all'interno della proprietà. Sembrava di essere in una favola. Il proprietario estremamente gentile e disponibile ci ha accolto con una ospitalità da altri tempi. Che altro dire..consigliatissimo!
