What makes this chateau / country house unique

The tranquility of the countryside fascinates you right from beginning ; every morning you can spot white-tailed bunnies in the garden and a number of different species of birds. The wooden porch is the social area of the house where you can share a drink or have a barbeque with your friends and family. When it is hot, the pool and the Provence style pool house is the place where we spend our days .

Beautiful Traditional Italian Country House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful week at Italo's house in rural Piedmont. The house is very comfortable and provided a complete home from home, with all of the amenities you could possibly need to have a relaxing vacation in this lovely corner of Italy.

It's location is ideal, with some many beautiful old Italian towns within easy striking distance, but also only an hour away from the large cities of Genoa, Milan and Turin. It's strategic location just off the motorway network means you can choose to quickly travel to other parts of Piedmont, or do as we did and enjoy meandering along country roads and stumbling upon lovely little towns where invariably you can sit in an ancient square and sample some of the work class food on offer from this part of Italy.

The house is very private and the outdoor areas, including the large swimming pool is ideal for families to while away a warm afternoon in the sunshine, surrounded by rural Italian life.

We were looking for a holiday base which provided ease of access, privacy, comfort and rural Italian authenticity, and Italo's beautiful house fitted the bill perfectly.

Relaxing hideaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week here. The house and grounds are just as described, and everything was clean and well presented. The owner Italo is very helpful and attentive but not intrusive. We had an issue with the wifi connection, which was resolved very quickly. The garden and pool area are particularly lovely and private - what a treat to have such a huge pool all to ourselves! The pool machinery was a little noisy though. The local wildlife includes birds such as egrets and woodpeckers as well as rabbits, hares and even a friendly frog! There is an excellent restaurant within easy walking distance and there are other really good restaurants in and around Tortona too, just a short drive away. Thanks Italo. We would definitely recommend the property to friends/relatives

Calme et chaleur

  • 5 of 5

Très agréable séjour passé chez Italo. La maison est très spacieuse, nous étions 2 couples d'adultes, 3 enfants et un chien . La grandeur des pièces, à l'étage comme au rez de chaussée fut très appréciée. La piscine avec son cosy façon Provence a permis de se détendre lors des chauds après midi. la grandeur du terrain permet diverses activités "sportives" (foot, badminton, pétanque...) , j'y ai même pu faire évoluer un petit avion radio commandé électrique en toute sécurité. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le style ancien de la propriété. La zone commerciale situé à quelques kilomètres de la maison est très pratique (supermarché, bricolage, ...) . Pour le tourisme nous avons pris systématiquement la voiture (Turin, Milan, Gênes, Pise, La Morra).

Juste un petit point à améliorer: les nuits très chaudes nous ont obligé à utiliser les ventilateurs présents dans les chambres , une petite climatisation simplement dans les chambres serait parfait ;o)

En tout cas Italo, en plus d'être sympathique, est disponible et réactif pour toute question/interrogation. Et il parle quelques mots de français. En conclusion , nous sommes très contents de notre séjour.

Ganz hervorragend ausgestattetes Haus, nette Vermieter!

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt etwas abseits von Tortona und ist war für uns mit 6 Personen mehr als ausreichend dimensioniert.

Die Ausstattung ist sehr gut, mit Riesen-Gasherd, Grillzone, Pizzahaus...alles kann genutzt werden.

Mehrere Flachbildfernseher, teilweise mit Sky, und WLAN runden die Technik ab.

Der Pool ist riesig und die Pool-Zone gemütlich ausgebaut (Kühlschrank am Pool!).

Im OG ein riesiges Badezimmer mit Whirlpool, im EG ein kleines Bad mit WC und Dusche. Handtücher und Bettwäsche ist im Haus vorhanden.

Die Angaben im Inserat sind somit zutreffend und teilweise untertrieben.

Im naheliegenden Tortona sind viele Möglichkeiten zum Einkaufen, und das klappt auch dann sehr gut, falls man wie wir kein einziges Wort italienisch kann :-)

Die Betreuung durch den Vermieter ist sehr gut, er ist immer gut erreichbar und kann bei allen Problemen weiterhelfen (spricht sehr gut deutsch).

Insgesamt ist das Haus sehr zu empfehlen, wir werden gerne wiederkommen!

Semplicemente impeccabile...

  • 5 of 5

Questo è il secondo capodanno che passiamo in questa bellissima residenza, ci siamo trovati talmente bene che pensiamo vivamente di tornarci anche durante altre festività, per usufruire di tutte le comodità e intrattenimenti che la casa può offrire, e che offrirà visto che il proprietario ha in mente di ampliare la tenuta con un campo da tennis e calcio balilla e altre fantastiche cose. Ormai c'è un rapporto di amicizia con il proprietario e non vediamo l'ora di tornarci, anche perchè oltre al divertimento ci si può rilassare in assoluta tranquillità e staccare la spina dalla monotona e frustante vita di tutti i giorni, ringrazio vivamente ancora Italo (proprietario) e vi consiglio calorosamente di visitare questa tenuta. Non ve ne pentirete.

Erholsames Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schönes Ferienhaus mit großem Umschwung und tollen Pool.

Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet wo man braucht. Die Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind in ca.15 min. zu erreichen. Wir hatten mit unseren Kindern eine sehr schöne und erholsame Zeit. Das Haus ist empfehlenswert und wir würden es sofort wieder buchen. Der Vermieter ist sehr kooperativ und spricht auch Deutsch.
