Country House Montessino combines the individuality of a small boutique B&B with the comforts of a resort. Built in1850 the hamlet Montessino belonged to a large Italian wine-growing family. The mansion is located on a hilltop on one of the picturesque hills of the Monferrato, surrounded by nature with fabulous views.
Restored in 2016 with great passion and soul, the owners turned this beautiful and quiet spot into their new home and are happy to share this little paradise with guests from all over the world.
In order to maintain the calm of this unique place we ask for your understanding that children can only be admitted from the age of 16 years up.
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”.
The six double rooms with en-suite bathrooms differ in location and size and are individually furnished but offer all the same comfort of modern amenities like tea-making facilities, air-conditioning, heating, flat satellite TV, and free Wifi. Three of them have balconies with sweeping panoramic views. Moreover, they are all decorated with works by the expressionist Alessandro Cardamone.
Start your day with our hearty, balanced breakfast buffet with freshly ground coffee, local specialties and organic delicacies as well as fruits from our own cultivation.
In our large garden, you will find our saltwater pool and a relaxing outdoor whirlpool. Enjoy at La Scuderia, the former riding stable and now converted to a wellness zone, a relaxing massage or indulge your body and mind in the detached techniques of yoga in our splendid yoga room. For sporty guests, La Scuderia offers an equipped gym and during winter, it offers a cozy Sauna. The Zen Island in the center of the hillside with its almost 360° view invites for meditation or relaxation while enjoying the Italian sun.
Enjoy your Italian aperitif on our sun terrace while the sun slowly submerges behind the hills. Should you feel hungry throughout the day we offer delicious, cold cuts or fresh salad bowls, while sipping a glass of local wine. For dinner, the many restaurants in the area will spoil you with traditional Italian, especially Monferrat cuisine. We will be happy to book a table for you.
