A beautifully restored farmhouse ('cascina') in the middle of Monferrato wine district, the house is conveniently located in the middle of North West Italy: Milan (the most lively and modern Italian city, with extraordinary monuments and unsurpassed shopping opportunities), Genoa (with its Riviera, Portofino, Cinque Terre, the popular Aquarium), Turin and the nearby Alps are easily reached by highways or railway in one two hours.

Magical place

  • 5 of 5

This property is in the most magical place, overlooking hills, a castle and vineyards. We dined at Isabella's restaurant which is open on Friday and Saturday nights and serves delicious local food and their own wine. The pool was beautiful and certainly had the best view from a swimming pool I have ever seen! Everything was clean and well maintained and I would certainly recommend this property to friends and family. My husband, teenage daughter and I had a blissfully relaxing time here. We went on a couple of trips and the house is well located for those who want to do a bit more than we did. Isabella and her husband were friendly and welcoming. It was slightly difficult to find - top tip - the asphalt road is more than 200m from the junction - more like 1 km. That was our only problem!

heaven of peace

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet and serene farmhouse situated in the vineyards, with a splendid view on the valley and a very nice pool we enjoyed a lot. Close to Pavia, Genoa and the Riviera, all beautiful places to visit. Nice villages with their historic centers in the surroundings. Commercial centers and other shops within 10 min by car in Ovada, as well as good restaurants. We have found a haven of peace in the home of Isabella and Michele. Very warm welcome.

A great place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely two weeks here. The accommodation, gardens and pool are excellent, peaceful and very relaxing with beautiful views. Being set in a vineyard the property offers a unique holiday experience, enhanced by the quality of the wine Isabella produces. Very well located for visiting northern Italian cities and tourist attractions with an easy drive down to the coast at Genova. We found all the local people to be most friendly and helpful. Isabella and family are delightful and could not have done more to make our stay very special. We would like to return one day as we love this part of Italy and cannot think of a nicer place to stay than at Ca Mimia!

Spectacular Property and owners!

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular property, wonderful owners, and loving Golder Retriever (Paco). It is certainly a property to which we would readily return and we cannot say enough about how responsive Isabella and her husband were throughout our time with them. There are many good restaurant within easy (15-30 min) driving distance and many tourist attractions for easy day trips.

Lovely place, very warm welcome

  • 5 of 5

We spend four dream weeks in a very nice setting with a swimming pool and views on the valley. The Owners are very friendly. It is a very beautiful area, close to Liguria. Many small cities to visit nearby. Nice garage sale at Ovada . We will surely come back.

So happy to have found this!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely space in 1700's restored Farmhouse. Isabella, the owner is welcoming and helpful with info about what to see and do. The pool was lovely. They were picking and crushing grapes while we were there, an added bonus. The vineyard workers were so nice and let us watch them and video! Love, love, loved it. You must go!
