The old property named "Cascina Masseria", once owned by the Marquis Stella of Roma stands in the splendid setting of the Monferrato hills, immersed in the countryside of Cremolino (AL), land of prized Dolcetto DOC wine. The villa, surrounded by vineyards, stands at 500 m. above sea level, benefiting of a dry temperature with cool evenings even in summer.
After a careful restoration, Villa Cascina Masseria become an ideal setting for a full immersion vacation in the green. Guests will have access to the entire house and its amenities and they will be the only occupants of the property.
The villa of 500 sq. meters is provided with all the comforts and convey all the warmth and simplicity of a country house with ceilings with exposed wood beams and stone walls. 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. The house has a fully equipped kitchen including all modern equipment and it will quickly become the natural place for family and friends to meet and enjoy great meals, made from local produce found in the area.
On the main facade facing the pool, there is a fantastic livable veranda used on summer evenings as a relax area.
In the courtyard of the villa you will enjoy a magnificent annex with porch where you can spend convivial evenings dining with your family or friends, while grilling meat in the barbecue or cooking pizza in the wood oven. This is the most used and appreciated area by our guests!
