In the distant past, on one of the picturesque hills of the Monferrato, the hamlet of Montessino belonged to a large Italian wine-growing family. In 2015, we were able to acquire one of the historic houses (built 1850) and restored it with great passion and soul. Particular attention was given to sustainability and ecology.
We turned this beautiful and quiet spot on a hilltop into our new home and are happy to share our little paradise with guests from all over the world.
This is indeed the place to lean back and enjoy the pleasures of living in harmony with nature, following the motto Carpe Diem “seize the day”.
In order to maintain the calm of this unique place and help you to relax completely, please understand that we can only accept children from the age of 14 years up.
After one year of renovation, we have created six cozy double rooms and a two-room apartment, while the cottage “La Casetta” with two double rooms and with its own garden, is situated straight across from the main house and offers enough space for families with children over14 years or small groups.
Rooms with a balcony have a wonderful panoramic view of the Unesco World heritage landscape. It was important to us to retain the historic structure of the building so that our guests can see and feel the history yet still enjoy modern amenities like in-room tea making facilities, air-conditioning, flat TV, and free Wifi. All our rooms have an en-suite bathroom and are enriched with works of contemporary art by Alessandro Cardamone. Enjoy our rich breakfast buffet with freshly ground coffee, homemade (whenever possible) spelt bread, organic jams and specialties, fresh farm eggs, and fruit from our own garden.
Relax at the outdoor pool or in the Jacuzzi (open from Easter to September) and put your mind at ease. The former riding stable house our little spa with a massage room, sauna, gym as well as yoga room. The Zen-island in the center of the hillside with its sweeping view invites for meditation or relaxation while enjoying the Italian sun. Should you feel hungry throughout the day we offer delicious, cold cuts or fresh salad bowls, while sipping a glass of local Barbera wine. For dinner, the many family-driven restaurants in the area will spoil you with traditional Italian, especially Monferrat cuisine. We will be happy to book a table for you.
