Welcome to our restored Cascina situated in a small, quiet village at the entrance to Monferrato and the wine region!

This area is popular with hikers, cyclists, motorcyclists, wine fanatics and lovers of fine food, and those who enjoy the calmer side to Italian living.

Our 300 year old farmhouse was restored 10 years ago, and it offers private and spacious accommodation for 6 people, and is elegantly and tastefully decorated. with wonderful, undisturbed views over the surrounding countryside.

We have an outside, covered terrace for al-fresco dining and a large private courtyard, ideal for parking.

There are 3 floors in total, 2 finished to a high standard. Our third floor is not-in-use as yet.

We have a fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, espresso maker and large dining table to sit 10. We have 3 bedrooms with balconies, 2 bathrooms, a wine cantina, 2 living-rooms with access to dvd-players, hi-fi, playstation 2, and projector. Plus a variety of english books, children's toys, dvd's and music CD's. We also have 3 wood burning fires.

Internet access is available throughout the house.

We have a large garden with fruit trees; cherry, plum, fig...which we are happy to share with you!

Keys can be picked up and dropped off at our local agriturismo, La Cascina da Nonu Celestin, across the field from us.

Unfortunately we won't be there to greet you in person as we live in Switzerland, however we are contactable by telephone, email, whatsapp or sms 24/7 to help with any questions or queries you may have. Its always a pleasure to hear from our guests and how they are getting on!

A car is essential here, as our local shop is a 5 minute drive away.

Bigger supermarkets can be found close-by in Murisengo and Cocconato, where you can also find a range of fine delis, bakeries and butchers.

The Piedmont region

Throughout the year there are many festivals in our area.

From September there are wine festivals, the most famous being the Douja D'Or in Asti, and local to us in Cocconato. We are close to other major wine towns such as Barolo, Barbaresco, Gavi and Dogliano for its Dolcetto.

We can organise wine tasting for you at some of our local cantinas.

October is the month for the truffle festivals in nearby Montiglio, Murisengo and Montechiaro. Throughout the summer every village has their own festa where you can eat, drink, dance and mix with the locals.

In April there is usually a music festival 'Castello di Musica" in Montiglio, that welcomes musicians from around the world.

There is a public swimming pool, 10mins drive away in Montiglio, Lago di Codana.

Horseriding is at La Ciocca, Tonco, 20 mins by car.

Turin and Milan are lovely day trips.

Lake Maggiore is only 1.5hours away by car.


We live in the heart of Piemonte bordering on 3 provinces Torino, Asti and Casale Monferrato. The area is completely unspoilt and is the rustic Italy that you can only dream about, what with the wonderful views, the friendliness of the people and the overall charm that is unique to this area.

It's a gastronomic gem, surrounded by restaurants and agriturismos specialising in Piemonte specialities. Hordes of cars drive from Turin on a Sunday to eat at our local restaurants and also the local agriturismo, Celestin del Nonno, where you can enjoy a 10 course meal consisting of cured meats, cheeses, homemade pastas, meat courses farmed by them, and their home made wine at an incredible low price!

Every day there are markets in the surrounding villages where you can buy local produce, fish, etc.

For cyclists and walkers, we are surrounded by rolling hills, picturesque villages with pitstops where you can enjoy an aperitivo!

"Die perfekte Unterkunft im Piemont"

Wir durften ein paar schöne und unvergessliche Tage im Haus von Nick und Michelle verbringen. Das Haus bietet alles, was das Herz begehrt. Viel Platz, schöne Zimmer, mehrere Bäder, einen gemütlichen, gedeckten Sitzplatz, Spielsachen für die Kinder und noch vieles mehr. Man fühlt sich dort sofort zu Hause. Dank den hilfreichen Tipps von Nick konnten wir uns in der näheren Umgebung kulinarisch verwöhnen lassen, Wein degustieren und diverse schöne Orte kennenlernen. Das Piemont ist wunderschön und Nicks und Michelles Haus die optimale Unterkunft – wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder. Danke für alles!

Thankyou for your kind words. We really like to help our visitors enjoy all the things we love about the area. I hope you can make it back someday...
