This beautiful house, near the UNESCO heritage site of Canelli and old roman town of Acqui Terme, is set amongst the stunning vineyards and rolling hills of Piemonte - Italy's best kept secret. A wonderful venue for spending time with loved ones at any time of the year. The house has stylish furnishings, Fully equipped kitchen, fantastic pool and stunning gardens.
We bought our beautiful farmhouse in the summer of 2008 and renovated the property including adding a swimming pool and completely remodeling the gardens. The house sits in 6 hectares of land including the landscaped area with pool and a large wooded area beyond.
Our views are spectacular. There are vineyards in the surrounding fields and on a clear day we have a breathtaking panoramic view of the Alps which are near enough for a weekend of fabulous skiing in the winter and great mountain adventures in the summer. We regularly take day or overnight trips to our favourite beaches of the Ligurian coast and, as if Italy didn't have enough to offer, we occasionally indulge ourselves with a lovely coastal drive into southern France.
Piemonte is very proud of its world famous wine and food and our house, on the border between the Langhe and the Monferrato regions, is perfectly placed to enjoy some of the best wine and food that Italy has to offer:
- Its world famous Barolo (red wine)
- the internationally renowned nocciole (hazelnuts) from which Nutella and Ferrero Rocher are made, and
- the much coveted extraordinary delights of the tartufo bianco (white truffle) to name but a few.
But above all the house is a lovely family home with all the warmth that this entails. Reconstructed with love and attention to detail this house is a delightful, comfortable, relaxing place to spend quality time with loved ones and to enjoy nature at its best.
