"Cascina Sant Antonino" is a charming country house, recently completely renovated but with a smell of ancient manor house which fascinate; located in the splendid setting of the Alto Monferrato,UNESCO HUMAN HERITAGE,in the center of THE CASTLES ROAD and of THE WINE DISTRIC. Here you are in the middle of the nature, with pleasant fields and gardens, a beautiful swimming pool and stunning views of Monviso Mountain and of the highest snowy Alpes (Monte Rosa and Cervino) with sunset not to be missed!!
To reach the house there are about 300 mt of unpaved road and this give to the property even more privacy.
At Cascina Sant’Antonino you can also enjoy an extraordinary view of the hills around: castles, vineyards and a pine forest where you can go to have a walk, with a final view that always astonished also the owners (that are used to see it).
The Portico and the Veranda of the house are fully furnished as areas for 'alfresco' dining and rest. Next to the swimming pool, with a beige plastic liner to reflect the light blue colour of the sky there is another nice living area with a wooden gazebo/ veranda with beach loungers, deck chairs and parasol for those who are shade-loving. Others sitting areas under the portico and in the garden. Around the house there are green grass gardens with trees and flowers, where you can chill out and rest.
Many walks by foot, bicycle (several mountain bike trails with own or rented bikes) or car, directly from the house to natural sites - lakes, pine-woods, little churches and castles.
From mediaeval times on, the Ligurian nobility chose to settle, during their holidays, on the hills and in the Castles of the Alto Monferrato, where they found fresh air during the summer, good wine and food, and they could easily join the see in half an hour or the big town of the high Italy.
Our guests can taste a very good kitchen and wine tasting by the Odicini Family,(wine producers from the 1500) that created an original and modern home/restaurant that combine the ancient history of their cellars and the culture of the Swisse bourghignonne to a young and modern structure.
And, food again, you can enjoy truffle hunting or just eating the white truffle in Alba ,in the Langhe area.
But, new and interesting, you can live a particular day, playing with the bow, helped by Giulia,a bow World Champion, that lives in this area, with her dogs, owls and falcons!!!You can eat by her and his husband(her teacher in this discipline).
Don’t forget we can suggest you unusual mountain bike trails…in the near pinewood , in the near Lavagnina’s Lakes area or in the wide area of the Natural Park of Capanne di Marcarolo.
We often organize with our friends off road tours with cars and/or motorbikes ...you have only to ask!! We can organize also or only for you!
And, again, you can enjoy antique markets, music, festival in every village as well as the thermal baths in the old Roman town of Acqui Terme.
The Ligurian Riviera, with Portofino, Camogli, Santa Margherita and the famous "5 Terre" is quite near, as the shopping centers of Serravalle Outlet.
