Castiglione Tinella House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedroom house, huge kitchen, terrace, sitting room, private pool 12x6m

Large house to rent in Piemonte, UNESCO world heritage, 2 story house located on the top of a hill. It has Amazing views, beautiful place to relax, lie by the pool, mountain biking/hiking, great food, local bar, huge eat in kitchen with a terrace all around the house , overlooking the valley. SMART tv and satellite and DVD and new WADSL wifi internet throughout. The house is 400sq meters so enough space to have some quiet time if you are with a large group. Child friendly and a new secure play pen has been made next to the pool and a new swing, slide play outside. There are also child items available such as 3 cots, 2 playpens high chairs, fold out bed, strollers etc. and babysitting can be organised. Swimming pool 12mx6m sunheated. The house can hold families as there are 5 bedrooms, 3 x double beds & 6 single beds + 2 extra beds should these be needed. The house is also suitable for a wheelchair as there is also an invalid shower and toilet on the ground floor and special ramps available. The house is located between Genua, Turin and Milan airports the house is situated in the middle of the Italian wine region Langhe, Barolo, Barbera, Barbaresco etc...so enough wines to be tasted. The region has not been spoiled by tourists so if you want to be in a place where the menu's are not in English but still in Italian, come and discover Piemonte.

Golf, mountain biking, walking, wine, horse riding: The area is has quite a few golf courses, the oldest 36 hole golf course is located near Asti, approx. 40 min drive. If interested in Golf I can provide you with some links to all the golf courses in the area. The area is very suitable for walking and cycling a lot of hills though! The whole area is wonderful to discover, not too many tourists and definitely no menus in English!! Piemonte is also famous for their winesand truffels therefore there are many cellars/stores dotted around the area. The hilly landscape, the cuisine, rendered varied by the range of culture and small farms , and as there is a big monumental heritage this area will want you to come back again and again and now being part of the UNESCO world heritage it will remain beautiful. Each season here is wonderful, starting from spring with its great burst of colour and all fruit trees full of fruit and views offered by the vineyard dotted hillsides. Summer has a breezy climate and preludes the glory of the harvest of a very tasty aromatic grape. Autumn generally in October shows the arrival of the delicious white truffle and all the wine festivals.

Non smoking: Non smoking house

Swimmingpool: This private swimming pool 12x6 meters has a fence around it to keep children away from the pool. There are 8 swimming towels available and 8 sun loungers. The swimming pool has an area of shade on the garage side for those needing this. There is a shower and toilet next to the swimming pool which is located in the garage next to the pool. There is a new ping pong table in the garage and a new trampoline with a safety net as well as a climbing frame with swings and a slide he garden. There are side tables next to your sunbed. The pool is heated by the sun and is wonderful. It is normally opened towards the end of May and closed in September depending on the weather as it is heated by sun only. It will be cleaned each week by a professional pool company and there is a net next to the pool for removing a leaf etc.. Please do not sit on the sofa's in the sittingroom with wet swimming outfits.

About Minette

After having studied Italian in Florence I decided I wanted to find an old building to renovate and when i found this I fell in love with the view. There where 4 walls and everything else had to be done to the property from water, electricity, gas, roof, floors, windows etc...i rebuilt a house inside the wine storage place and loved doing it.

Minette purchased this house in 2005

Why Minette chose Cuneo

The view and location, it is difficult to find properties that have some flat ground and i wanted to avoid the zona rossa (planes fly over with spray for the vines) this property location was perfect in a UNESCO area and the view is spectacular, the project was much larger than i was planning but this location is unique. Come and see it and most of all enjoy it.

What makes this house unique

WADSL wifi internet just installed throughout the house and new SMART TV and a Private pool, very large kichen and a fantastic view which you can enjoy while eating your food and drinking a glass of wine. Eating outside in the shaded area looking at the view is when I am just incredibly happy and tranquil. Described by previous guests as wherever you look you see a painting, the pictures don't do justice to the view

casa la tana

  • 5 of 5

Casa La Tana is an amazing spot..quite lovely in the unspoilt Piedmonte. The house is very spacious and comfortable, and has a great feeling of being at home. I have seen the work in progress for nearly two years, and now that the house is finished I have spent a very happy two weeks there with my daughter. Needless to say I admire her immensely for all the thought and care she has put into the property, and I can assure you that all facilities are present and I think that people will find that everything is there that they need to have a very happy anf pleasant holiday. The space is wonderful...room for everybody, but also pretty important spacious enough to be on your own as well!! Long ago we used to spend holidays with our 5 children together with friends with 3, and this house would be perfect for a combined holiday stay. Masses of english books, games ,electronic things....the pool is wonderful with the view across to Castiglione Tinella...great for sunbathing there, but also VERY important a good shaded area beside the pool. You are not dependent on parasols to get into the shade.The Piedmonte is still pretty non-touristy which is a great plus...menus usually just in Italian etc. There are lots of things to do and see....if you can tear yourself away from the house! Hopefully I will be able to go again in the autumn.....What is also a very useful asset is the bedroom downstairs (with bathroom) ...good if you take along the grandparents, or anyone who is troubled with climbing stairs.It means that the senior members can miss out on the early bird noises of the grandchildren amongst other things!!The beds are all good and long..quite rare in Italy!! I have tried to be very non-predjudiced in this description, as, even though La Tana belongs to one of my daughters, it is only fair to give a true rating.

Stunning views over vineyards and lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa La Tana for the last two weeks of August and had our most relaxed family holiday ever - the views are simply stunning, the house is comfortable with a lovely feel to it and our two children, 8 and 10, loved the trampoline, the pool and the table tennis. Mrs Fouzia made up every bed in the house for the four of us, and two relatives who came to visit, which was such a nice thing to do and there were lots of pool towels for us. We had the most fantastic two weeks, never to be forgotten.

Stunning Views. Perfect for groups of friends.

  • 5 of 5

As a group of friends with 8 children between us this house was perfect. Plenty of space inside and out especially with the pool area. It was wonderful to linger after lunch at the outside dining table watching the children playing in the pool. The views from the terrace and from most of the house are stunning. Wonderful to relax over a glass of wine from the local vineyard surveying the landscape. Would recommend this property wholeheartedly. Communication with Minette was very easy and quick. She was very helpful before and after our stay.
