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 2016, we were able to acquire one of the historic houses (built 1850) and restored it with great passion and soul.


We turned this beautiful and quiet spot on a hilltop into our new home and have opened our doors to 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”.

Children over 12 only.

After one year of renovation, we have created six beautiful double rooms and a two room apartment, while the cottage “La Casetta” with its own little garden, is situated straight across from the main house and offers enough space for families or little groups.

All our rooms have their own private bathroom.  Some rooms have a balcony with a wonderful panoramic view on the Unesco Worldheritage 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-conditionning, flat TV and free Wifi. All rooms are enriched with works of contemporary art by Alessandro Cardamone. 

Our rich breakfast buffet includes homemade (whenever possible) breads, jams and fruit from our own garden or from the area.

Relax at the outdoor pool or in the Jacuzzi and enjoy the wonderful view. The former stables house our little spa with a massage room, sauna as well as yoga room and gym.

The Zen-island in the center of the hillside with its sweeping view invites for meditation or simply relaxation while enjoying the Italian sun. For a light snack, we offer delicious, genuine cold meat platters or fresh salad bowels which you can enjoy along with a glass of good wine. For dinner, the many family-driven restaurants in the area will spoil you with genuine Italian and especially Monferrat cuisine. We will be happy to book a table for you.

For business or private events, retreats of any kind rental of the whole infrastructure is possible. Our charming, multifunctional room in the former stables with big panoramic windows overlooking and hills, equipped with free wifi suites especially for workshops or meetings. Here your mind will be put at ease and you will be open and sparkling to new, refreshing ideas. 

Let us know your requirements, we will be more than happy to send you our tailor-made package.
