Asti House Rental Photos and Description

7 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, bread house, private pool.

Casa Pasqualin is completely independent and as the house situated topmost in the historic village centre of Cessole, it benefits not only from the stunning location and view with plenty of sunshine from morning to night, but at the same time from the proximity to village too. During the expansion the over 250-year old facade was not modified and the inside of the old vault was refurbished. In contrast with the old buildings great value was placed on modern comfort in the expansion and facilities. So the house has 7 double bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, 2 galleries, an open living / dining area with modern kitchen with island and in addition to a swedish stove, the house also has a combined gas / solar heater that protects the environment. And a skillful layout of a total of 330m2 living area makes it possible for smaller groups of up to 8 persons, to rent only the major part of the house with a good 200 m2 at a reduced price offer. Either way, the pool is always available at the best location (15 x 3.5 metres with separate children's pool).

Best wines, appropriate food that goes with it: With Barolo and Barbaresco in the Piedmont the grapes grow to probably the best wines from all over Italy. But even Barbera, Dolcetto and white wines such as Chardonnay, Arneis and Gavi and even Moscato do not need to be hidden. Wine tasting at a winery here often takes a whole afternoon, for the Piedmontese are innately very nice people and they take time. Suitable to these fine wines here, along with white truffles in the fall, we can find a wide range of wonderful dishes all year round. A real Piedmontese food needs no menu, because what they buy fresh in the morning is what they cook for the day. So the same special menu is served throughout the room, starting with up to 8 starters, followed by the Primo (fine thin noodles or small, handmade ravioli, lasagna, risotto, gnocchi, soup, etc.), the Secondo (meat, often from veal or rabbit, wild boar) and finally cheese and / or dessert (probably the most famous 'Panna cotta').

For tennis players, fishermen and horsemen too: On foot, it is just 600 metres from the village's own tennis court. This is so rarely used that until now there has never been any scheduling conflicts, when our guests wanted to use it. The form must be checked there for a small fee of € 5 per match (per day and not hours). Adjacent to it is a football pitch and a bocce court, which are freely available. Anyone planning for a ride or riding lesson, the best place to get picked up is 'Centro Ippico', which is 5km away in Quartino, where various Camargue horses wait for movement. And anglers come to the specially constructed large pond in the neighbouring village Vesime at their own cost. Fishing and bait are rented or sold there.

A beautiful hilltop home in a charming village

  • 5 of 5

A group of six friends, we took full advantage of the size of this home which offers excellent indoor and outdoor entertaining space but also private bedrooms and ensuite baths.

Breathtaking views of the charming village of Cessole and surrounding countryside.

About 1 hour drive from prime wine-tasting locations, but worth the drive to stay in this beautiful home and genuine Piedmont village.

Owners were very helpful in pre-trip planning, recommendations for restaurants, and particularly introductions to small, highly quality and welcoming wine-makers. Bravissimo!

A wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

Family and friends gathered here for a week in late November and had a wonderful time. There were 8 of us, but the house could have fit many more. It is even better than described, with the best-equipped kitchen I have ever found in a rental house. It definitely became a home away from home for us. Urs, the owner, was extremely helpful and full of information. We would love to return when it's warm enough to use the pool -- it is beautiful -- but also loved being there in "fog season" and feeling like we were waking up on top of a cloud every day. If I had one wish it would have been to have the house information booklet in English -- it was in German only, and we used Google to translate it, but the translation was a bit goofy!

Traumhaus für Traumurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren nun schon das fünfte Jahr im Freundeskreis gemeinsam im Urlaub, aber dieses Haus war das mit Abstand beste, was wir je hatten.

Das stilvoll hergerichtete alte Gebäude bietet sehr viel Platz, ist sehr sauber und gut in Schuß. Die zwei Küchen reichen locker, um alles Hausbewohner zu versorgen. Das "Highlight" war jedoch der Brotbackofen draußen vor der Küche, den wir mehrmals für das Herstellen von Pizza, das Braten gefüllter Hähnchen etc. benutzt haben.

Die Außenanlage ist "dreistufig" terrassiert und endet am wunderschönen Pool. In der weitläufigen Anlage findet man genug Platz, so daß sich ggf. auch 14 Personen gut verstreuen können. Der Pool mit dem Blick über das Dorf hinab ins Tal ist eine Wucht!

Der Ort hat einen ganz kleinen Laden, größere Läden oder einen Supermarkt findet man aber gleich im nächsten oder übernächsten Ort.

Das Piemont ist ein Geheimtipp.

Der Kontakt mit den Vermietern war immer sehr gut, freundlich und schnell. Sowohl die Hausübergabe am ersten als auch am letzten Tag fand in netter und lockerer Atmosphäre statt.

Traumplatz mit viel Genuss

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben das Casa Pasqualin als Großfamilie (15 Personen, 17 bis 79 Jahre) richtig genießen können.

Es gibt ausreichend Gemeinschaftsräume und Rückzugsplätzchen, sodass alle die Gemeinsamkeit erleben konnten und bei Bedarf, auch den persönlichen Freiraum gegeben war.

Als großes Plus empfanden wir, dass für jedes Zimmer ein eigenes Bad/WC vorhanden ist.

Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und in ausgezeichnetem Zustand.

Die große, sehr gut ausgestattete Küche lädt zum gemeinsamen, unterhaltsamen Kochen ein. Der Pizzaofen und Smoker im Garten, bieten zusätzliche Möglichkeiten sich kulinarisch zu verwöhnen.

Für Ausflüge (Umkreis mit Fahrtzeit unter einer Stunde) gibt es zahlreiche Möglichkeiten.

Die vom Vermieter zur Verfügung gestellten Tipps für Restaurants oder Weingüter können wir sehr weiterempfehlen – wir waren immer begeistert, sei es von den angebotenen Produkten, wie von der Freundlichkeit der Menschen.

In Cessole und der nahen Umgebung (Cortemilia, Acqui Terme, Monastera Bormida, Canelli,…) ist man in Italien - logisch, aber was wir damit ausdrücken wollen, ist nicht geografisch gemeint, es ist die Lebensweise. Wir haben das richtig geschätzt und trotz bescheidener Italienischkenntnisse (oder gerade deswegen) viele nette Menschen kennen gelernt.

Auch die größeren Städte wie Alba oder Asti haben ihren besonderen italienischen Flair.

Und wer das Meer sucht, das erreicht man von Cessole aus, auch in gut einer Stunde.

Das Pasqualin ist eine ideale Unterkunft für einen erholsamen Urlaub und ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für abwechslungsreiche Ausflüge.

Die Vermieter sind äusserst hilfsbereit. Auch bei Sonderwünschen hatten sie ein offenes Ohr für unser Anliegen und ausgezeichnete Tipps. Wir haben uns sehr gut aufgehoben gefühlt und können das Casa Pasqualin, wie Urs und Susan als Vermieter, sehr empfehlen.

Skønt hus til store familier

  • 5 of 5

Vi var 4 familier som havde en skøn uge i huset. Super lækkert pool område med skøn udsigt. Skønne værelser. Udlejer arrangerede en kok som kom og lavede vidunderlig italiensk mad sammen med os. Lille butik i byen med lokale produkter. Overskuelig afstand til nogle af italiens bedste vinområder. Huset er meget velholdt og rengøringen fin. Eneste minus er kirkeklokken som ringer 4 gange i timen hele døgnet.

Demeure typique avec vue sur le Piémont

  • 5 of 5

Magnifique maison de pierre rénovée avec gout surplombant le rustique village de Cessole avec sa fameuse église à 2 niveaux.

On peut y vivre très confortablement à 16, 7 chambres avec autant de salles de bains. Un grande cuisine bien équipée, un salon avec TV et bar, une coin à manger en terrasse avec grill et four à pain et même une piscine design. Les photos des divers sites ne mentent pas!

Depuis Cessole on peut partir à la découverte de la région, lors de la location une brochure très complète nous est remise avec un nombre impressionnant de bonnes adresses, de quoi rester sur place quelques semaines!

Rien à reprocher, on ne peut pas se tromper.

Cessole is a small Piedmont village with a picturesque, historic village core on the sunniest hillside in the valley 'Valle Bormida' that extends from the Roman spa town of Acqui Terme far into Cortemilia towards the sea. Its location between the hills of 'Langa Astigiana', between sea and mountains, between Alba and Acqui Terme and close to the famous wine regions of Barbaresco and Barolo make it a perfect base for a relaxing holiday and yet with variety. If you like to play tennis, bocce and football, you can reach the appropriate places in only 600 metres away; anglers and riders will find it in about 5 km away. And hikes as well as cycling tours start right outside the door step.

Other activities: Bocce, football

Golf: The nearest golf course is located in Acqui Terme, a good 20 minutes away. Another 18-hole course can be found in all directions, where five of the twenty most beautiful golf courses in Italy are already in Piedmont.
