Description

Built in 1936 for the local cinema owner (sadly long gone) the property has retained its exceptional signs of grace and grandeur with spacious and generous rooms conveniently on one level.

A living/dining room and entry sun room foyer complete the accommodation. The house has steps to enter, as well as adjacent to access the gardens. Regretfully it is not suitable for wheelchair users.

Seating on the terrace in the evening, you can enjoy the setting sun with views of the neighbours vineyard. Depending on the time of year you visit, the local sounds may include tractors attending to their meadows and fields, the sound of the local hunting society and their dogs in search of trophies including wild boar, tree cutting and seasonal preparation of the woodlands, the flow of water through the nearby stream feeding into

Happy voices of the cycle teams often pass climbing or descending the hilly ground beyond the village. Don't forget to visit the Roman toll bridge that spans the river behind the village or the pallone elastico handball games if one is happening during your stay.

You can enjoy your breakfast and sunset cocktails on the terrace, or laze quietly on the lower gardens listening to the sounds of the country.

The home is spacious. Ideally a family or group of 6 shall enjoy it to the max. Larger groups need to take into account that the infrastructure of hot water replenishment is a little slow and can lead to shortfalls during peak demand.

Further details outdoors

The house is surrounded by its own garden planted with specimen trees which have now matured to prominence on the landscape.

Location description from owner

The Piedmont region

The region of Piedmont is famous for the Savoy Royal family whom ruled the first Italy from Torino. Today, Torino is a cosmopolitan city with a strong French historic character, 18km of arcaded shopping zones, home of several universities, the world famous Egyptian Museum, the former Synagogue, now Film Museum (Mole Antoneliana), Juventus football team and the Fiat production with its associated motor related events/facilities.

Today, the south east portion of the region focuses on wine and food promoted most recently via the Slowfood movement. Increasing well known wines including those from Barolo, Gavi and Asti are making significant good impression to visitors to the region.

Alba famous for its truffle fair, or Cortemilia (hazelnut) offer further gastro interest, along with the small cheese producers whom sell wonderful goat and sheep cheeses.

The Arts and History are not neglected either. Acqui Terme, the nearest large city with approx 25,000 inhabitants has an Annual Ballet Festival, Jazz Events, the Thermal Spa, a huge outdoor swimming pool, plus thermal hot water treatments.

Roman ruins are located within the city and along the River Bormida where the old Roman viaduct is still evident. During the summer and the wine season, many exterior events take place. Each village also provides some local events that promote the locality and offer true and original hospitality.

Spigno Monferrato

Spigno Monferrato village sits within the spread of two rivers that protect the village. The old Abbey was historically important and still occupies a dominant position. To the rear of the Village the old Roman toll bridge straddles the river.

The village has sports facilities for football and tennis, plus the local sport of Pallone Elastico. The nearest large swimming pool is located in Acqui Terme. Walking and cycling can be accomplished easily, through the level valleys or via the more twisting lanes that lead up into the hills that flank the valley.

Spigno Monferrato is an important village in the history of the region, offering the beauty of an Italian countryside you may have thought long lost in time. The property is located on the edge of the village (1400 citizens) which provides all essential services including, grocers, bank and post office, baker, butcher, hardware store, petrol station and police station.

Arguably the best restaurant (Regina) in the district is located in the village with further choice of a pizzeria for simpler yet tasty meals or bars/cafes. A small market takes place on Wednesday morning when the local school bus gather senior citizens from the nearby villages and give then an opportunity to catch up on the latest exchange of important and less important news.

The small village market takes place on Wednesday, with a large regional market in Acqui Terme on Tuesday and Friday.
