Description

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday cottage in Acqui Terme - Countryhouse in the vineyards

A perfect place to enjoy family reunions, friends gathering, and wine getaways

Beautiful country house surrounded by charming vineyards and fruit trees in the Unesco region of Monferrato. A perfect place to enjoy family reunions, friends gathering, getaways to explore slow food (cheese, white truffle) and the great Piedmont wines.

We recently renovated the house while preserving its history of more than one hundred years. Three generations of winemakers lived here, built these walls and used the barrels still visible in the tuff cave rock cellar.

The 3 floors house has 4 double rooms, 4 bathrooms, washing machine, a fully equipped kitchen (dishwasher, oven, microwave), a huge living room with a fireplace that we love to lighten up to warm up the cold winter nights. One of the two dining rooms used to be the place where the winemakers were making the sweet and delicious Moscato Passito DOC of Strevi.

We recently installed a new heating system. In winter, the house will be pre-heated before your arrival.

During the summer you can enjoy some relax under the shade of the trees on the hammocks, use the barbecue to eat, and if you're lucky eat some figs and peaches directly from our trees.

You can use our 4 bikes to go aroud. The main road is wonderful to jog or bike down, with amazing views at the top.

The renovation is still unfinished (external facade to be done, garden to be completed), so we're offering accomodation at a special price.

The surroundings are the true reason to be here. The Monferrato area has been recently included in the UNESCO heritage, offering beautiful walks through the vineyards, the Roman spas in Acqui Terme, visits to the old charming castles with dungeons and towers, and of course wine and food tasting. There is one Michelin star restaurant in Acqui, plus a number of other excellent ones.

Famous winemakers are all over the place, one excellent wine shop in Acqui with all of them. The area is also well known for its world famous white truffles, with two top restaurants a few minutes' drive from our place.

Our valley is the home of the sweet wine Passito di Moscato di Strevi, a Slow Food Presidium. See the Slow Food foundation web for more details.

For the fashion victims, one of the top designer malls in Italy is 45 minutes away with the very best of fashion (Armani, Aspesi, Bulgari, Prada...). But we are quite sure that once you see the vineyards, you will never think of going there ;-)

About Eugenia & Simone

Hi, we are a young coupe and we live together in Rome (and on the Lake Maggiore since two years :)

I am a biologist and Simone is a consultant. We love travelling around the World, we are enthusistic foodies, and love good wines of course!

Eugenia & Simone purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Eugenia & Simone chose Alessandria

We have been captured by the beauty of this area during a short trip for wine tasting. We love the atmosphere of the house, immersed in the peace of the countryside.

We hope you would enjoy the house and feel welcome like it's your own place.

What makes this cottage unique

It is an old countryhouse, so please don't expect the standards of a modern one, or of an hotel room.

For instance most of the windows don't perfectly seal the room, apart from the ones we got changed. You have to pull hard to open a couple of them, especially if there is rain (the window wood frame expands).

Heating is provided by a brand new heating system. The house will pre-heated before your arrival, so it's perfectly ok also for cold winter nights (we still prefer to use the fireplace :-)

Idyllisches Haus inmitten von Weinbergen

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren als Großfamilie mit Kleinkindern von Mo bis Fr dort. Das Haus an sich ist super gelegen, die Zimmer sind geräumig und liebevoll eingerichtet. Es hat alles, was man für einen enspannten Urlaub braucht (inkl. Grillplatz), und Eugenia und Simone haben sich bei der Buchung und während des Aufenthaltes gut um uns gekümmert. Das Haus war bei unserer Ankunft sauber, die Angaben zum Haus und zur Anfahrt waren ausführlich und gut.

Durch das kalte regnerische Wetter haben wir den Kamin und das bereitgestellte Feuerholz sehr zu schätzen gewusst.

Fazit: jederzeit und gerne wieder!!

Einziger Nachteil war der Gestank in einem der Badezimmer, das wohl von einem undichten Rohr stammte, und inzwischen wieder behoben sein durfte.

FANTASTICO!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo soggiornato in 11 amici per 5 notti nel periodo di capodanno, la casa è molto grande ed immersa nei vigneti proprio come descritta,molto pulita, ordinata e curata nei dettagli.

La zona giorno ristrutturata è stupenda, pareti in pietra, soffitti a volta con mattoni a vista...da vedere!!!!!

Camino, stufa, locali di generose dimensioni, legna reperita grazie ai proprietari, di ottima qualità come il vino delle loro vigne, squisito e ad un prezzo imbattibile.

A 5 minuti in auto c'è un ottimo agriturismo che offre cucina locale.

La proprietà anche se non presente in loco è stata sempre molto disponibile e ha soddisfatto tutte le nostre richieste.

Per chi vuole godere del fascino della campagna senza rinunciare a nessun comfort!!

I nostri complimenti e ringraziamenti sono rivolti ad Eugenia e Simone, sempre gentili e professionali.

Da ritornarci!!!!!
